Russian defence industry exhibits more than 200 weapons and military equipment at LAAD 2013.

Russian state arms export agency Rosoboronexport exhibits more than 200 items of Russian weapons and military equipment at the LAAD 2013 Defence and Security exhibition. The company is a traditional participant in the event since 1995, but this year the exposition is increased. The total area of Russia's exposition managed by the Rostec Corporation will be three times larger than that at LAAD 2011.

The Rosoboronexport stand will display air defence assets in the centre stage. As expected, specialists will be most interested in such air defence equipment as the Pantsir-S1 gun-missile system, Tor-M2E and upgraded Pechora-2M missile systems, as well as Palma ship-borne missile system. The Rosoboronexport stand will also exhibit a full-scale mockup of the Igla-S man-portable air defence missile systems with an automatic control module.

Latin American specialists take great interest in various types of Russian weapons and military equipment designed for land forces: in particular, in the Tigr armoured car, small arms and close combat weapons including the Kornet-family antitank missile systems and its latest version, Kornet-EM, capable of conducting fire at a range increased up to 10 km as well as engaging aerial targets.

Latin America is one of the most promising markets for Rosoboronexport. Its share in the total foreign military sales of 2012 reached 18 percent (while in 2011 it accounted for 14 percent).

"Latin America is a strategic region to us, and this is specifically emphasised at the highest political level. In recent years we have been successful in preparing a solid base for a qualitatively new breakthrough. All prerequisites are in place for making this step forward and, what's important, Russia and countries of the continent share common interests in substantially expanding military technical cooperation. Especially important is that Russia is not only ready to deliver finished products but also to transfer full-fledged technologies, set up licence production, and implement joint projects for the development and production of new items, - noted Sergei Ladygin, head of Rosoboronexport's regional department and company's delegation to the exhibition.

Brazil is one of the most prospective Russia’s partners in the region, with whom military technical cooperation started to unroll in the middle of the 1990s.
