Russia’s Rostec will present more than 450 models of weapons and new developments at the Army 2018 Forum that starts on August 21st.
Amongst the new products that will be on display are the first serial anti-aircraft missile system Sosna, the Sprut-SDM1 self-propelled anti-tank gun, a universal combat engineer vehicle for preparing routes for troop movements and manoeuvres, a new weapon station to upgrade the BMP-1, and also new small arms and types of ammunition.
“International events of this level provide a strong counterbalance to sanctions. At a time when the organizers of Farnborough and other foreign exhibitions are trying to restrict opportunities for promoting Russian military products, we are inviting foreign guests and presenting new prospects for cooperation. During last year’s Army Forum, meetings were held with delegations from 50 countries, more than 30 contracts and agreements were signed to the total value of approximately 40 billion rubles,” said Rostec’s CEO, Sergey Chemezov.
The upgraded line of Mi-35P, Mi-35M, and Mi-28NE attack helicopters, and also the Mi-26T2V heavy military transport helicopter will be displayed.
