MINSK, 22 April (BelTA) – The air defense missile system Trio will be showcased during the international defense technology expo MILEX 2019, BelTA learned from representatives of the State Military Industrial Committee of Belarus.

The product will be showcased by the Belarusian company OOO BSVT – New Technologies. The system was designed due to the rapid development of compact unmanned aerial vehicles, which the current air defense systems cannot fight effectively.

The air defense missile system Trio is designed to protect small sites and industrial installations, ground army units, and destroy compact flying targets, including drones. The system includes a mobile command station fitted with surveillance tools, the upgraded air defense short-range combat vehicle 9K35 Strela-10, the upgraded air defense self-propelled unit 3SU-23-4 Shilka, and the machine gun robot unit Berserk based on GShG-7.62 rapid-fire aircraft machine guns.

The components of the Trio system complement each other and allow effectively destroying compact aerial targets of different classes. All the units are mounted on tracked chassis in order to travel well over various kinds of terrain.

Belarusian specialists believe that the Trio system is a comparatively affordable solution with a high combat potential.
