Our history: the 65th anniversary of the Battle of Kursk.

Compared with the Stalingrad or Moscow, which lasted more than six months, it may seem short, since it lasted only 50 days and nights, but in its tension, in the perseverance of the belligerent parties, in the amount of military equipment, fierceness and losses, it was, perhaps, the most important battle of the Second World War.

Remembered veteran of the Great Patriotic War Mark Pavlovich Ivanikhin.

Our report: an exhibition of weapons and military equipment was completed in Nizhny Tagil.

In the welcome letter of Vladimir Putin to the participants, it is said: "Your exhibition is held in the Urals, where generations from generation to generation carefully preserve and transmit the rich traditions of Russian gunsmiths.

Today, the domestic defense-industrial complex, in which highly skilled specialists work, creates modern and in many ways unique samples of military products, and the exhibits presented in Nizhny Tagil convincingly confirm this. "

The shooting took place at the test site "Staratel".

Interview: Hero of Russia Leonid Shcherbakov, Deputy Director General of FSUE Rosoboronexport Igor Sevastyanov, Director of FSUE "Bazalt" Vladimir Pronkin, manager Fabien Bortoluzzi.

Our report: according to the information of the experts of the Defense Committee of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, the average average flight time of an air force pilot is about 50 hours.

Ideally, the pilot should not even have a 1st class, but a 2nd class must have a raid of at least 450 hours per year (250 on a training aircraft and 200 on combat aircraft).

Hence the rapid wear of aircraft and high accidents.

The exit was found in the only remaining training center in the country "ROSTO" in Vyazma, here theoretical and practical classes are conducted on more light aircraft that can significantly save fuel and equipped with photo and video control systems.

Shooting at the center's center: the day of intensive training pilots of the Moscow and Leningrad military districts.

Interview: Head of Vyazemsky UAC Kazimir Tikhanovich, Deputy Head of Flight Training Anatoly Marunko, Captain Opalikhin.
