Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) is keen on technical cooperation with Turkey in high-tech areas such as the aerospace, helicopter and power industries.
“Military-technical cooperation (MTC) between Russia and Turkey shows a positive trend. We successfully deal with competitors’ attempts to interfere with our relations,” said Rosoboronexport’s Director General Alexander Mikheev. “We have a number of joint projects for the development of advanced aircraft and helicopter systems, armored vehicle components, after-sales support of supplied weaponry. In addition, Turkey is interested in Russia’s latest remote weapon stations, air defense assets of varying ranges, as well as ATGM systems.”
“Turkey is among the key partners of Rostec and Russia. The level of bilateral relations, including in industry, is growing rapidly. At the moment, we are discussing with Turkish partners the implementation of a number of critical projects in both military-technical cooperation and civil industry fields,” said Sergey Chemezov, Director General of the Rostec State Corporation.
“Of course, we are ready for various formats of
technology cooperation, including in such high-tech areas as the aerospace,
helicopter and power industries.”
Rosoboronexport is the organizer of a joint Russian display
at IDEF 2019, which includes over 450 pieces of weaponry and military equipment
from more than ten domestic defense manufacturers. Almaz-Antey Air and Space
Defense Corporation, Shvabe Holding Company and Tehmash Holding Company will be
among the exhibitors.
Rosoboronexport’s Stand 232 is providing information on more
than 300 pieces of military equipment that have the best prospects in Turkey
and the Middle East region, including new products from the Company’s export
catalog: the newest Kalashnikov AK-200 series assault rifles, 30-mm 32V01 remote
weapon station, Viking SAM system and the 76.2-mm AK-176MA automatic naval gun.
The mock-ups of the BT-3F armored personnel carrier,
KAMAZ-53949Typhoon-K vehicle, Su-35 multirole super-maneuverable fighter and
the Project 12061E Murena-E-class air-cushion landing craft are on display at
the company’s stand.
“IDEF is among the world’s top ten largest defense industry exhibitions and, along with Russia’s ARMY, MAKS and International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS), is one of the most significant arms exhibitions in Europe. The event provides an excellent opportunity to study the trends in the world arms market, while foreign customers can see the best Russian weapons, known for their impeccable fighting qualities,” added Alexander Mikheev.
