“Now is the time when our sustained and consistent efforts to promote a wide range of the latest Russian aircraft and air defenses are starting to yield firm contracts. We have managed to gain a foothold in new markets, regain our lost positions in a number of countries and continue to intensely develop military-technical cooperation with our traditional partners. Growing interest among foreign customers in new weapon models and Rosoboronexport’s comprehensive marketing strategy to promote Russian military and dual-purpose products are a guarantee that Russia will hold its leading positions in the global arms market in the aerospace sector,” said Ivan Goncharenko, Rosoboronexport’s first deputy general director heading the Company’s delegation at the exhibition.

Among the promising export models that Rosoboronexport will show to its foreign partners at MAKS 2015 are the Su-35 and MiG-29M/M2 multifunctional fighters, Yak-130 combat trainer, Il-76MD-90A military transport, Be-200 amphibious aircraft, Ka-52 and Mi-28NE attack helicopters, Mi-26T2 heavy transport helicopter, Ka-226T light utility helicopter, Mi-17 type military transport helicopters equipped with advanced avionics and navigation equipment. As to air defenses, the Company will conduct the presentations of the Igla-S MANPADS, Pantsir-S1 SPAAGM system, Tor-M2E and Buk-M2E SAM systems, Antey-2500 air defense missile system as well as the latest EW systems.

At MAKS 2015, Rosoboronexport will for the first time display military equipment in a new exhibition format. At the Company’s booth, the visitors will be able to get acquainted with the performance and capabilities of the Su-35 fighter and Ka-52 helicopter in the course of an interactive installation created using the latest imaging technologies.

Delegations from more than 44 countries will visit MAKS 2015 at the invitation of Rosoboronexport, the traditional general sponsor of the air show in Zhukovsky.

Rosoboronexport will hold talks on the prospects for delivering aircraft and air defense systems. Particular attention will be paid to technical and scientific cooperation and establishing joint and license production facilities and customer service.

Today, Rosoboronexport, together with Russian aircraft manufacturers, is implementing a global strategy to establish service centers for maintenance and repair of Russian aircraft and helicopters in almost all regions of the world, including in the framework of offset agreements with the attraction of local companies and appropriate transfer of technology.

Such helicopter repair service centers are being established in Brazil, Venezuela and Peru and aircraft repair service centers - in Vietnam, India, Myanmar and China. Prospects for building service centers are also being actively discussed with other Rosoboronexport’s partner countries, including the European countries, where Russian aircraft are currently in service.

Over 15 years since its foundation, Rosoboronexport has signed contracts to supply foreign customers with more than 360 aircraft, 180 assembly kits for licensed production of Su-30MKI fighters in India, as well as over 800 Mil and Kamov helicopters.
