“This year we have successfully cooperated with our traditional partners – India and China. Cooperation with Indonesia, Vietnam, and Myanmar gains steam as well. In addition to that we are upbeat about defence cooperation with a number of African states. Russia enjoys certain growth points, and we start taking more decisive actions,” said Alexander Mikheev, Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General and head of Rosoboronexport delegation at MAKS 2011.

In addition to traditional well-mastered forms of cooperation, such as military hardware procurements, licence transfers, spare parts deliveries, repairs, etc., the company has recently actively embarked on new forms of cooperation, including joint development of advanced aircraft. For instance, this line of work is actively pursued with India within the framework of the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) development programme, the Medium Transport Aircraft (MTA) programme and the Su-30MKI (Super 30) deep modernisation programme.

Russian helicopter exports actively grow with each passing year. The State-Of-The-Art technologies and high scientific potentials of such Russian design bureaux as the Moscow-based Mil Helicopter Plant and the Kamov Company allow Rosoboronexport to successfully compete in the international arms market.

“It goes without saying that the lead is held by renowned Mi-17-family military transport helicopters. Aircraft of this type were delivered to Thailand and Indonesia in early 2011, and the final batch of such helicopters will soon be shipped to Peru. We will also start delivering Mi-17V-5s to India this year. Besides, we have signed contracts for delivery of such helicopters to the Afghan Air Force with the US Department of Defence, as well as Sri Lanka,” Alexander Mikheev pointed out.

Rosoboronexport has also secured leading positions in the international air defence systems market. Promising lines of activity include deliveries of several types of S-300 and S-400 family long-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems, Buk-M2E and Tor-M2E SAM systems, the Pantsir-S1 self-propelled anti-aircraft gun and missile system (SPAAG), Igla-S man-portable air defence systems (MANPADS), and electronic warfare equipment, as well as services, aimed at establishing and equipping local air defence hardware repair facilities.
     
Rosoboronexport will familiarise visitors to and participants in the MAKS 2011 air show with the following main pieces of Russian aircrafts and helicopters:

SU-35:
The Su-35 is a multi-role super-manoeuvrable fighter, based on fifth-generation technologies. It features a new thrust vector control (TVC) power plant, an increased power and a greater service life. An improved cockpit management system, a combined electronic/mechanical scanning radar, new navigation and radio communications equipment, a highly efficient electronic countermeasures (ECM) system and advanced weapons ensure the Su-35’s significant competitive advantage.

Yak-130:
The Yak-130, selected as a basic training aircraft for the Russian Air Force, is a versatile aircraft. It is expected to replace the famous L-39 Albatross trainers, operated by many CIS member-states. A special onboard combat mode simulation system ensures high-quality flight crew training within a very short period of time. At the same time the Yak-130 can also be employed as a light combat aircraft, which nowadays appeals to many customers.

Mi-28NE:
The Mi-28NE combat helicopter incorporates the vast combat experience of its predecessor – the Mi-24 combat transport. The Mi-28NE is indispensable on the contemporary battlefield due to its unique survivability, a wide range of weapon systems, and the ability to operate by day and night. The helicopter has been in service with the Russian Armed Forces since 2009. Pilots have appreciated outstanding flight characteristics and combat capabilities of the helicopter.

Ka-52A:
Excellent flight characteristics, ensured by coaxial rotors, and the unique manoeuvrability allow the Ka-52A helicopter to carry out fast combat manoeuvres to take a favourable attack position. Multi-function avionics enable the helicopter to fly, navigate, and fire its weapons by day and night in any season. The Ka-52A can also be employed as an airborne command post and a scout helicopter.
