06.11.2015 Press release

Russian weaponry special exporter Rosoboronexport, which belongs to State Corporation Rostec, is going to the Dubai Air Show – to take place in Dubai November 8-12, 2015 – with Russia’s major aerial and AD systems.

“We are facing growing military-technical cooperation with Mideastern and North African countries. Aside for what we are already used to deliver there, several aerial and AD equipment started getting more interest, something we hope will grow into new business opportunities. Russian-made helicopters and aircraft proved their effectiveness in large-scale antiterrorist operations all over the world. Our Arab partners are cognizant of their air-superiority and ground precision strike capabilities, which contributes to our marketing advantages,” Mikhail Zavaliy, Rosoboronexport’s Director General Advisor and the head of the Russian Delegation, said.

The Su-35 and MiG-29M/M2 multi-role fighters, Yak-130 combat-trainer, IL-76MD-90A military transport aircraft, Ka-52 attack helicopter, Mi-35M transport-combat helicopter, Mi-17 military transport helicopters, and various AD systems, particularly the Pantsir-S1 missile and gun complex, stand good chances of getting exported to the region.

Rosoboronexport expects the event to offer opportunities for negotiations with the delegations from the UAE, Kuwait, India, South Africa, Malaysia, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, Jordan, Oman, etc.

The agenda for meetings with foreign partners includes outlook for exports of Russian-made air weapons, aerial and AD equipment, as well as deployment of maintenance and after-sales service centers in general.

The Dubai Air Show, supported by the UAE Government, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, and Ministry of Defense, is one of the largest and most prestigious air shows in the world. Russia has been coming to its every iteration since 1993.
