Rosoboronexport JSC, part of Russian Rostec State Corporation, is presenting the latest Russian-made Air Force, Air Defense, and electronic warfare equipment at Dubai Airshow 2019.
At the airshow, Rosoboronexport is the organizer of Russia’s single display with a total area of more than 750 square meters. In addition to Rostec and Rosoboronexport stands, eight leading Russian holding companies producing military equipment will showcase their products, including United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Russian Helicopters, United Engine Corporation (UEC), NPO High-Precision Systems, Almaz-Antey Concern, Shvabe, and others.
Foreign delegations are expected to take a keen interest both in new products having significant export potential and in the Russian bestsellers in the world market: the legendary S-400 long-range air defense missile systems, Buk-M2E and Viking SAM systems, Ka-52, Ka-29, Mi-35M, Mi-26, Mi-38 and Ansat helicopters, Su-35, MiG-35, Su-32 aircraft, as well as battle-proven air-launched precision-guided munitions. Irkut Corporation brought to the exhibition a full-scale model of the Yak-130 combat trainer.
“The Middle East is a key region for Rostec. Traditionally, the demand for Russian-made military equipment is strong here and interest in high-tech civilian and dual-use products has markedly increased in recent years. At Dubai Airshow 2019, Rostec holdings, in addition to new aircraft and helicopters, will showcase the latest Russian systems for countering drones and other air attack weapons. In particular, along with well-known ‘hard-kill’ air defense systems, we offer ‘soft-kill’ electronic warfare equipment mounted on various platforms, including the high- mobility systems Sapsan-Bekas, Kupol-PRO and Pishchal-PRO. These systems can be successfully used to protect military and industrial facilities, civilian infrastructure against drone attacks,” said Rostec General Director Sergey Chemezov.
“Rosoboronexport has taken part in all Dubai Airshows in its history. It is pleasant to note that the scale of the exhibition is steadily increasing and interest in our products is growing in parallel. We’re doing our best to justify increased attention by partners and surprise them with unique Russian defense developments,” said Rosoboronexport Director General Alexander Mikheev. “This year is no exception: we’ll showcase here the latest Su-57E fifth-generation fighter, Mi-28NE and Mi-171SH helicopters modernized drawing on lessons learned in fighting, as well as unique air defense weapons, including the upgraded Pantsir-S1M SPAAGM system. Space-related topics, too, has not been ignored: we are presenting a new Sula radar here to monitor space objects.”
