"The Kurganets-25 infantry armored vehicle, the Bumerang combat vehicle, Taifun armored vehicle, and the Armata tank, which will be displayed for the first time during the May 9 Victory Parade in Moscow, are now equipped with up-to-date software and hardware systems designed by UIMC. The new systems allow online monitoring of the tactical setting and cooperation with command points and other military units within an automatized combat control system," the report read.

According to Vasily Borisov, research head of the Sozvezdie group (part of UIMC), the new systems will allow combat vehicle crews to implement the new warfare concept entitled "netcentric warfare".

"Success of combat actions depends not on the number of weapons or firepower, but on supremacy in digital technologies. The concept presumes using military units which are dispersed across large areas and far from command points, but at the same time united into a single communication network," Borisov said.
