Rostec displayed over 450 units of arms and designs at the Army-2018 forum. They included a renewed line of helicopter gunships, tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, antiaircraft missiles, new small arms, communications and electronic warfare equipment. Rostec occupied over 5,000 m².

The corporation and its holdings held a large number of meetings and talks with potential partners and participated in the business program of the forum. "International events of such a scope are a major counterbalance to economic sanctions. Farnborough and other arms shows tried to limit Russian possibilities to promote its weapons, but we invited foreign guests and offer new cooperation opportunities", it quoted corporation CEO Sergey Chemezov as saying.

Rostec said its companies displayed the first serial Sosna antiaircraft missile, 2S25 Sprut-SDM1, new combat module for BMP-1 modernization, a renewed line of helicopter gunships Mi-35P, Mi-35M, Mi-28NE and heavy Mi-28T2V transport helicopter. New sights and other optical designs were presented for the first time.
