ISTANBUL, May 7. /TASS/. Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport has offered combat systems of Russian manufacture to the Turkish Navy, the company’s chief delegate at the IDEF-2015 weapons show Anatoly Aksyonov has said.
"We have been cooperating in the creation of smaller amphibious hovercraft, as well as the integration of combat systems of Russian manufacture with Turkish naval platforms," he said.
Earlier, a Rosoboronexport spokesman said that at the IDEF-2015 the company had concluded a number of agreements with Turkish companies, including projects concerning naval forces.
Aksyonov also said Russia and Turkey have tested a joint short range air defense system.
"We and a Turkish company have performed an integration of our complex of short range with their combat platform and it has confirmed its characteristics. The Russian name of this system is Igla. This project is ready and has been tested, and now an issue of its manufacturing is being discussed with the customer," Anatoly Aksenov said.
If Turkey equips these systems with its own missiles rather than the Russian ones then "there will be no questions." This issue is up to the Turkish side, the Rosoboronexport representative said.
Turkey has shown interest in Russia’s air defense missile systems, including the Antey-2500, the export version of the S-300 system (NATO reporting name SA-23 Gladiator\Giant).
