From September 6 to 9, 2022, the 30th edition of the prestigious MSPO International Defence and Security Technology fair will take place in Kielce, Poland, which is one of the largest in Europe. Last year, the participation of the companies of the CSG holding received a great response, which was helped, for example, by the European exhibition première of the DITA 155 mm howitzer and the Polish exhibition première of the Tatra Tactic 6×6 vehicle. In addition, the joint exhibition of the holdings companies won the award for the best design of the stand. The companies of the Czechoslovak Group (CSG) holding company, Tatra Trucks from Kop?ivnica and EXCALIBUR ARMY are its traditional participants and will not be missing this year either.
This year, the companies Tatra Trucks, Excalibur Army, Retia, ?eská letecká servisní, MSM Group and Fábrica de Municiones de Granada will present their products and services at the MSPO fair. Tatra Trucks will present a new product seen for the first time at this year’s Eurosatory – Tatra Phoenix military heavy tractor with a new armoured cabin made by Tatra Defense Vehicle (TDV) company. In addition, the truckmaker will also exhibit Tatra chassis in 6×6 and 4×4 versions suitable for various military applications and superstructures. Excalibur Army will also bring a fresh novelty to Kielce – the MORANA 155 mm howitzer, which also had its world premiere a few months ago at the Eurosatory fair in Paris. The howitzer, which is the main attraction of the CSG holding’s joint exhibition, will be on display on the outdoor display area, similar to the DITA 155 mm howitzer last year.
The Slovak branch of CSG holding, represented by MSM Group, will exhibit at the fair a wide range of large-calibre ammunition produced by the Slovak ZVS and MSM Nováky companies, and the Spanish manufacturer Fábrica de Municiones de Granada (FMG). The ZVS portfolio will be represented by 155 mm calibre artillery ammunition as well as technological components for ammunition, such as igniters, initiators, etc. Also on display will be 155, 152 and 122 mm artillery training ammunition, as well as 125 mm tank and training ammunition produced by MSM Nováky. In Kielce, FMG will demonstrate 120 mm tank ammunition and 105 mm ammunition suitable for both artillery and tanks. In addition, ammunition for 60, 81, 98 and 120 mm mortars will be on display.
The CSG Aerospace division will be represented by the companies Retia and ?eská letecká servisní (?LS). Retia develops and produces military, security and recording systems. RETIA develops, produces and modernises radars, control and command systems, UWB localization and communication systems and ReDat Recording Systems designed for voice, screen and data recording.
