During the third International weapons and military equipment KADEX-2014 which will take place on May 22-25 in Astana (Kazakhstan) Rosoboronexport will present the most actual Russian military products for Kazakhstan and other CIS states within the framework of the joint exposition of the Rostec.

“Our relations with the partners from Kazakhstan continuously develop. We hope the exhibition will contribute to further broadening and extension of our cooperation, moreover currently our states faces a lot of challenges in the field of collective security. There are negotiations on a number of projects for the benefit of all the services, and the implementation of these projects will substantially increase the combat potential of the services”, - noted Advisor to Director General of Rosoboronexport Esen Topoyev who heads the delegation at the exhibition.

The greatest interest is expected in the field of the Russian aircraft. We have scheduled the demonstration flight of the SU-30SM multirole fighter being one of the most advanced versions of the Su-30 family – the export bestsellers of Rosoboronexport. Besides the MiG-35 multirole fighter will also be available at the display site.

The Kazakh specialists are also interested in the Su-35 multirole fighter and the Yak-130 operational trainer. The Ka-52, Mi-28NE and Mi-35M attack helicopters have great potential in the Kazakh market.

Among the Russian AD systems the Panzir-S1 missile and gun system, AD medium-range missiles and CEW systems are expected to attract much attention. Taking into account the plans of Russia and Kazakhstan to develop the joint regional AD system, the issue of delivery of modern AD systems will be much discussed during the exhibition.

The Navy segment will be primarily presented with patrol boats and cutters designed to guard littoral are. In particular the Tornado fast attack guided missile craft, which is successfully operated in the Caspian flotilla and completely satisfies the needs of Kazakhstan will be presented at the exhibition.

Rosoboronexport dynamically exploits a broad range of military products for the benefit of the Army including the tactical level automatic troop command system (ASUV TZ) in the Kazakh and CIS markets. The introduction of the system will substantially increase the efficiency of troops control due to utilization of advanced systems of navigation, digital communication as well as computers and electronic maps.
