Rosoboronexport – Rostec’s member – will display advanced equipment, manufactured for export, at the Army-2016 international military&technical forum.
“Army-2016 offers a convenient venue for demonstrating every capability of Russia’s Defense Industrial Complex (DIC) to Rosoboronexport’s traditional and potential partners. The special arms exporter expects to receive 50-plus delegations from all over the world. Many of them are led by ministers of defense and chiefs of services,” said Rosoboronexport’s Deputy Director General Sergey Goreslavsky, who will head the delegation at the event.
Rosoboronexport’s brass plan to hold talks with foreign delegations and businessmen from over 40 countries of Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa, as well as CIS states. The meetings will be arranged in the company’s negotiation suite and at forum’s sites.
Rosoboronexport is the Army-2016 general sponsor. It has arranged its display in a prestigious part of the pavilion next to the Russian MoD sites. There will be equipment for all services with several displays complete with interactive augmented reality technologies. This will particularly be used to demonstrate the Su-35 super maneuverable multirole fighter, Mi-35M versatile helicopter gunship with troop carrying capabilities, and Pantsir-S1 AA gun-missile system. Though the actual spotlight will be on counter-terrorism and efforts will be taken to promote to foreign markets Rosoboronexport’s new product, i.e. armament and equipment providing capabilities for setting comprehensive protection of population, cities, and key installations against plausible threats, and fighting large terrorist groups.
“Rosoboronexport will bring over 270 pieces of military equipment to the exhibition. We are also going to put into action a new exhibition technology, developed by the company’s specialists, namely a touch screen terminal integrated into a network of demonstration displays, capable of capturing pictures of physical models and providing on-line catalogs. That is how we will demonstrate the T-90 tank, TOR-M2E SAM system, Project 636 submarine, Yak-130 combat trainer aircraft, and Ka-52 scout attack helicopter,” Sergey Goreslavsky continued.
