28.03.2016 Press release

At the 19th International Air & Space Fair FIDAE 2016, which will be held at the Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport from 29 March to 3 April, Rosoboronexport, part of Rostec State Corporation, will discuss prospective aircraft projects with the Latin American partners.

“We continue promoting in Chile Russian aircraft, in particular, Mi-17-type military transport helicopters and the Yak-130 combat training aircraft. They meet all the requirements of the Chilean Air Forces, have excellent performance, and surpass competitors by cost-effectiveness. Besides that, we will conduct negotiations at the exhibition concerning aircraft and anti-aircraft systems with delegations from other Latin American countries. The interest in Russian defence systems is strong, so we expect that the negotiations at FIDAE-2016 will be meaningful and fruitful”, – said Sergei Ladygin, Deputy Director of the JSC Rosoboronexport, who heads the joint delegation of Rostec State Corporation and JSC Rosoboronexport at the exhibition.

It is expected that foreign delegations will be mostly interested in the Mi­17-type military transport helicopters, Mi-35M combat transport helicopter, Mi­28NE combat helicopter, MiG-29M/M2 and Su-30MKI fighters, and Yak-130 combat training aircraft.

Among anti-aircraft systems, the air defence artillery and missile systems Pantsir-S1, air defence missile systems Buk-M2E and Tor-M2E, and portable air defence missile systems Igla-S have the most export potential in Latin America.

Rosoboronexport will conduct negotiations with high-ranked representatives of the armed forces of Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, and other countries of the region. Besides the delivery of final samples of military and dual-purpose products, the matters of enhancing after-sales servicing of Russian systems and organizing joint and licensed production will be discussed.

JSC Rosoboronexport will give a presentation of Russian Military Aircraft (Conference Center, Room 2) on 30 March 2016 at 14.00. In the course of the presentation, the company’s representatives will tell about the performance, combat capabilities, and advantages of the MiG­29M/M2, Su-30MKI and Su-35 fighters, Yak-130 combat capable training aircraft, Mi-17-type, Mi-35M, Ka-52, Mi-28NE, Ka­32A11VS, Ka-226T, Ansat/Ansat-U helicopters, and the multipurpose reconnaissance and surveillance system based on the Orlan-10E UAV.
