Manufacturers from 21 countries and delegations from 50 are taking part in the 8th International fair of arms and military equipment "Partner 2017" which is due to wrap up in Belgrade on Friday.

Serbia, the host country, presented a selection of sophisticated military equipment during the exhibition, including the Aleksandar, a modernized version of the Serbian self-propelled howitzer Nora.

The Aleksandar is equipped with a 155mm gun and has a range of up to 30 kilometers.

Serbian military expert Aleksandar Radic told Sputnik Serbia that modernization of his country's army was not costly because the new technical solutions are based on previous experience over the years.

"It all began in the 1980s, when the self-propelled howitzer Nora, which was based on the Soviet-made 130mm M-46 cannon, was exported to Myanmar, Kenya, and Bangladesh. In this vein, the Aleksandar reflects Serbia's desire to modernize its military hardware and increase the number of customers in the world market," Radic said.
