SHAH ALAM: As reported in a previous posting, Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) held negotiations with foreign partners and signed over 30 contract documents worth over 3 billion Euros over three exhibitions held within the last three months. The exhibitions include the ARMY-2021 Military-Technical Forum, MAKS-2021 Air Show and IMDS-2021 Maritime Defense Show.
Rosoboronexport press release:
Rosoboronexport has leveraged the full potential of Russian summer defense exhibitions,
thereby replenishing its order portfolio and increasing the workload of the domestic defense enterprises: the export plan now includes Su-30-type aircraft, Mi-35M/P, Mi-171Sh and Mi-17V-
5 helicopters, aircraft weapons, Pantsir-S1/S1M self-propelled anti-aircraft gun/missile
(SPAAGM) system, Verba MANPADS, Protivnik-GE radar, Krasukha electronic warfare system, Repellent-Patrol mobile anti-drone EW system, Kornet-EM ATGM system, remote controlled weapon stations, weapons for surface combatants and submarines, small arms, ammunition. An agreement was reached on integrating Russia’s Palma shipborne gun/missile close-in weapon system (CIWS) into a ship’s foreign-made weapons system.
“Russia’s successes in military-technical cooperation prove that the domestic industry is
capable of developing new unique products and solutions that are in demand in the market. At
the same time, a qualitative renewal of the plants and design bureaus’ fixed assets, their timely
retrofitting and upgrading at the expense of funds received from the implementation of state
defense orders and export contracts, launches the processes of positive transformation of
infrastructure in regions, from household facilities to science schools, technology parks and
experimental laboratories accessible to youth,” said Alexander Mikheev, Deputy Chairman of
the Russian Engineering Union (REU), Director General of Rosoboronexport.
Among new Russian products presented at Russian exhibitions this summer, foreign partners
paid special attention to the T-14 Armata tank, combat vehicles based on the Boomerang
platform, Orion-E reconnaissance/strike UAV, Antey-4000 battlefield air defense missile system,
Pantsir-S1M SPAAGM system, the fifth-generation Su-57 fighter, BMP-3 with the Berezhok
combat module, other equipment. More than 80% of Rosoboronexport's annual deliveries fall on
products manufactured at REU’s enterprises: Rostec’s holding companies, including Russian
Helicopters, High-Precision Systems, United Aircraft Corporation, and other domestic defense
"The enterprises associated in the Russian Engineering Union are a strong growth driver of the
Russian economy, which greatly contributes to the development of military-technical
cooperation: their high-tech products are heavily exploited by partners from more than 100
countries, in the most challenging climatic and combat conditions," said Alexander Mikheev.
Systemic cooperation with REU enterprises is carried out in all regions of the country, enabling
Rosoboronexport to continuously replenish its "library of offset projects" aimed to promptly
engage domestic enterprises in drawing up tender bids for foreign buyers.
Today, Rosoboronexport's portfolio of export orders exceeds $52 billion.

Buying arms from Russia will result in US Blacklisting right?
yup, so far what we know those countries buying arms are ex Soviet states
Not written in stone. Totally dependent on Uncle Sam who will be very selective : depends on who is doing the buying.
Not necessarily. Vietnam is also a large buyer of Russian weapons but still maintain a relatively close relationship with US.
The US is a lion and it decides when and who will be its next lunch. There is no hard and fast rule to its choice.
Does spareparts, upgrades and ordnances comes under CAATSA purview?
While the US administration may waived sanctions, the US Congress may inclined to do so, its a Catch 22, really
It’s simple really. If it’s within U. S. interests for a certain country to get Russian gear [i.e. India and Vietnam] then it will keep quiet. Depends on who’s buying and how it fits in with overall American interests and concerns.
Caatsa..what an unfair trade tool to monopolise the arm trade sector..would love to get that verba manpads at least for our tudm to complement starstreak for shorad..or maybe for paskau/skuadron kawalan medan for base defense..
It’s not to “monpolise” anything but to inconvenience Russia and deter certain countries. It’s a geo-political tool and has to been seen in that context.
