In addition to air defense systems, Turkey is interested in Russian-made protection systems for tanks, small arms and ammunition, Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said.

“We are holding joint consultations on a number of prospective projects in the sphere of military-technical cooperation,” Rosoboronexport’s press service cited the company’s CEO Alexander Mikheev (photo) as saying.

“In particular, Ankara has shown interest for various Russian air defense systems, systems of active and passive protection for tanks, as well as small arms and ammunition…,” Mikheev said.

According to the press service, Rosoboronexport is ready to develop full-scale cooperation with Turkey and is planning as a first step to send its delegation to participate in the IDEF'17 International Defense Industry Fair to be held in Istanbul on May 9-12, 2017.
