Global aerospace major Airbus is showcasing its latest military products and defence technologies at the show.
Airbus is demonstrating its “capabilities and commitment” to help kick-start a defence industrial base in India, an Airbus spokesman said.
Airbus exhibits include models of C295 aircraft, which is reckoned as a tough, reliable and high-performer with envious lifecycle costs and performance on short or unpaved runways.
Airbus has bid to manufacture the C295 in India together with Tata Advanced Systems. Visitors to show will also get a chance to learn about the combat-proven A330 MRTT, the only new generation aerial refueller in full service today.
“Airbus is uniquely placed to participate in the ambitious growth journey of the Indian defence industry and take it to new heights. DefExpo is a key platform to showcase our commitment to the country’s ever-growing aerospace and defence needs,” Anand Stanley, President & Managing Director, Airbus India & South Asia, said.
In addition, exhibits of the AS565 MBe Panther, the H145M and the H225M helicopters are on display.
With more than 25 years of experience in defence publishing, Global Business Press and its industry leading titles Asian Defence Technology, Asian Airlines & Aerospace and Daily News are the leading defence publications in the region, present at more international shows and exhibitions than any other competing publication in the region.
