Rosoboronexport, a member of Rostec, will render assistance in organizing international arms exhibitions to be held in Russia this summer. These include the IMDS-2017 maritime show, MAKS-2017 aviation and space exhibition, and ARMY-2017 technical forum.
“For Rosoboronexport, going to the maritime defense event, as well as MAKS and ARMY is vital for they are essential marketing tools in virtue of providing foreign customers with an insight into the development trends of the Russian defense industry and opportunity to discuss their needs with us and representatives of defense facilities,” explains Director General Alexander Mikheev of Rosoboronexport.
The special arms exporter will bring over 500 pieces of military equipment to the three events. Many of them will be full-scale specimens on static display and at berth at the venues, as well as on test ranges and in the air where in keeping up with traditions Russia’s latest designs will demonstrate their performance.
All foreign customers visiting the events will be able to get exhaustive information on any defense products designed for export. This year, crowds of foreigners are expected to gather at Su and MiG fighters, Su-32 fighter-bomber, Yak-130 combat-trainer, Mi and Ka helicopters.
Russian AD systems have always been popular on the world market. Foreign delegates never miss the opportunity to stop by the full-scale models of the S-400 Triumph and Antey-2500, as well as Buk-M2E and Tor-M2E SAM systems, and Pantsir-S1 AA gun and missile system.
Visiting naval delegates have ever been attracted by Russian military maritime equipment, including Amur-1650 submarines, Project 11356 and 22356 frigates, Project 20382 corvettes, Project 21301 rescue craft, and Project 12701 mine sweeper.
Army personnel always end up at SAMs, upgraded T-90MS tanks, BMP-3 IFVs, Tigr and Typhoon armored vehicles, small arms, etc.
The special arms exporter always plans a rather extensive business program at the exhibitions hosted by Russia. The company's top brass are to meet government officials, representatives of the armed forces and business communities of various countries.
