The Ministry of Defence began celebrations in marking of the Independence Day of Georgia with the exhibition of LEPL State Military Scientific-Technical Centre DELTA. Chief of the General Staff of the Georgian Armed Forces Major-General Vakhtang Kapanadze had a look at the military equipment displayed at the Rose Revolution Square. He congratulated the representatives of the GAF and the Georgian population on Independence Day.

DELTA exhibited 15 new types of military equipment for the first time, including the Georgian-made unmanned aerial vehicle, recently produced medical evacuation armored vehicle and a vraint f the Didgori armored personnel carrier equipped with unguided rocket launch modules. An adapted armored vehicle that was specially produced for the desert conditions arose great interest among the viewers. The Military Scientific -Technical Centre presented the armored equipment made according to NATO standards, several modifications of the fire-arms, a 120 mm mortar (designed for self-propelled platform), remote controlled combat modules, an anti-hail system, special armored equipment and other defence systems.

DELTA employees personally informed Major-General Vakhtang Kapanadze about the military production manufactured in the Centre.

I am glad that DELTA has been brought again under the subordination of Ministry of Defence as a main customer and that the consumer of its production is the Armed Forces. It is also a positive fact that the MoD and DELTA are displaying together the locally-made military products. With this exhibition, DELTA demonstrates its manufacturing potential. Each model is new and rationally designed. After the DELTA production passes inspection and testing at the factory and army levels, the armed forces will be able to introduce them in armament, stated Major-General Vakhtang Kapanadze.
