Rosoboronexport JSC (part of the Rostec State Corporation) is the organizer of Russia’s single exhibit at the VIII International Exhibition of Technology for Defense and Natural Disasters Prevention, SITDEF 2021, which will be held on October 28-31 at the General Headquarters of the Peruvian Army, Lima, Peru.
The exhibit will feature products developed by the Almaz-Antey Air and Space Defense Corporation, the Kronstadt Company, as well as Rostec’s Kalashnikov Concern, United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), High Precision Systems and other manufacturers. Russian Helicopters will showcase helicopters at its stand.
“Rosoboronexport highly appreciates the level of military-technical cooperation between Russia and Peru. This country is our long-standing and reliable partner that successfully operates Russian aircraft and helicopters, armored vehicles and anti-tank systems,” said Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport.
“We are ready to further develop mutually beneficial cooperation in the interests of the Armed Forces of Peru, as well as other law enforcement agencies of the country, including the police and special operations forces. During the exhibition, we will also discuss with our partners cooperation in training personnel to operate Russian weapons, as well as the issues of after-sales service of previously purchased equipment.”
About 300 pieces of military hardware will be on display at the Rosoboronexport stand. The company will showcase scale models of the Yak-130 training (combat training) aircraft, Mi-28NE attack helicopter, Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft gun/missile system and the BTR-82A armored personnel carrier, which have high potential in Latin America.
In addition, Rosoboronexport is ready to provide comprehensive information on the Russian weapons and military equipment offered at the exhibition. In particular, Su-35, Su-30SME, and MiG-35 fighter aircraft, Mi-35M, Mi-171Sh, Ansat helicopters, as well as advanced aerial weapons.
Visitors to the company’s stand will see a wide range of air defense and electronic warfare systems of various ranges, including the S-400 Triumph and Antey-4000 air defense missile systems, Viking, Buk-M2, Tor-M2KM SAM systems, as well as Igla-S and Verba MANPADS.
The Tigr and Typhoon-K armored vehicles, Khrizantema-S, Kornet-E and Kornet-EM ATGM systems, BTR-80A and BTR-82A armored personnel carriers, which have proven their reliability and effectiveness during real combat operations, as well as new K-16 and K-17 wheeled fighting vehicles, based on the Boomerang common combat platform, will no doubt be of interest to representatives of the ground forces and special operations forces of the countries in the region.
At the Rosoboronexport stand, the Special Technology Center (STC) will show promotional materials on the Orlan-10E unmanned aircraft system, which is extremely popular among Russia’s partners in the global arms market.
Representatives of all services and branches of the armed forces are expected to pay increased attention to modern training sets and systems from leading Russian manufacturers.
Rosoboronexport has scheduled a busy business program, during which it will hold meetings and negotiations on further cooperation in the supply of weapons and military equipment, the development of offset programs and opportunities for establishing industrial partnerships with defense enterprises of the countries in the region.
