The AK-103 assault rifle has been exported to Iran, Libya, Pakistan and Venezuela. The AK-103 is license-produced in Ethiopia, Venezuela and Vietnam.

In February 2016, Iranian officials announced that Iran would spend another $8 billion on the purchase of Russian-made arms. The sale comes as Moscow gears up to deliver to Iran an advanced missile air defense system as part of a deal that has been in the works for years.

Recently, Russia has started the delivery of S-300PMU2 air defense missile system. The $800 million missile contract, signed in 2007, was frozen by Russia in 2010 because of international sanctions against Iran. President Vladimir Putin unfroze it a year ago.

Iran is also interested in Russia’s Bastion mobile coastal defense missile system, equipped with supersonic Yakhont anti-ship missiles, along with Mi-8/17 helicopters and other arms.
