JSC Rosoboronexport has led the return of Russia’s defence industry to good health.
Rosoboronexport is now promoting sales of new types such as Su-57E fifth generation fighter, in addition to Mi-28NE and Mi-171SH helicopters. Rosoboronexport is aggressively promoting the new Tornado-S Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) which can destroy targets as far out as 120 kilometers, new MLRS projectiles and rounds for tank guns, mobile complex of missile weapons “Club-T”, the “Rubezh-ME” coastal tactical missile system and numerous other types of weapon systems.
“Rosoboronexport continues to strengthen its positions in the world arms market. Irrespective of fierce competition, in the year 2019 we have already managed to supply our products to 43 countries to the amount of 11 billion dollars, signed over 800 contracts for future deliveries. And these are not the final results as we have two more months ahead until the end of the year. Simultaneously, the portfolio of orders of the company keeps at the level of nearly 50 billion dollars, which guarantees the load for Russian defence industry enterprises for several years ahead,” said Rosoboronexport’s Director General Alexander Mikheev, who is also holding position of deputy chairman of the Union of Russia’s Machine Builders.
“Despite sanctions, we have completed supplies of all the components of the S-400 Air Defence Missile Systems to Turkey ahead of time, created and launched the first world’s joint venture on production of the Kalashnikov assault rifles of the ‘two hundredth’ series in India,” Mikheev adds.
