Rosoboronexport Considers Indonesia a Growth Market

: Nov 8, 2018 - : 8:50 pm

Russian defence export agency, Rosoboronexport is displaying 200-plus pieces of military equipment at the ongoing Indo Defence 2018 expo.

“Arms market in South-East Asia is top on the priority list of Rosoboronexport. Most of the countries in the region are our long-standing partners. They know Russian weapons perfectly well, have trust in them and always keep their eyes open for development of more advanced systems, which we make sure to bring to every exhibition in Indonesia. This year we are going to put on display a number of new but already popular in the world systems catering to the needs of all services: BT-3F armored personnel carrier, IL-78MK-90A tanker aircraft, Pantsir-ME ship-based AD system, Karakurt-E and Sarsar ships, as well as other military equipment,” says Rosoboronexport’s CEO Alexander Mikheev.

Rosoboronexport is confident of the export prospects for helicopters such as Mi-17 military transport helicopters, Mi-35M attack helicopter with troop-carrying capacity, as well as Mi-28NE and Ka-52 gunships.

A special emphasis is being placed on armoured fighting vehicles (AFVs) with models of types such as BMP-3M and BMP-3F fighting vehicles, BTR-82A and BT-3F personnel carriers, BMPT tank support vehicle, and Kornet-EM and Khrizantema-S AT systems, all on display.

South-East Asian nations with numerous sea borders have always been an important market for naval equipment. Here, Rosoboronexport will have a few very special items, some of them combat-proven. Much interest is expected to go to the Project 11356 guard ship, Project 20382 Tigr small guard ship, Gepard 3.9 frigate equipped with the Club-S integrated missile system, Project 22160 patrol ship, 03160E Raptor patrol craft, and Project 636 submarine.

Also, being showcased are new ship and shore-based missile systems, such as the combat proven Kalibr-PLE (Club-S) and Kalibr-NKE (Club-N) integrated missile systems, Bastion and Bal-E shore-based systems complete with the Yakhont anti-ship cruise missile and Kh-35E anti-ship missile respectively, as well as underwater weapons, namely UGST torpedoes and bottom mines.
