Russian weaponry special exporter Rosoboronexport is participating at the ongoing Dubai Air Show taking place 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 (photo) 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.
