MOSCOW, July 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian delegation at the Farnborough International Airshow opening on Monday in Britain plans to meet a number of major European military producers, representative of the Russian Rosoboronexport defense export agency Sergei Kornev told journalists.
“During the exhibition, we’ll traditionally meet our foreign partners, buyers and users of Russian military equipment. We also expect a fruitful dialogue with the major European producers,” Kornev said.
Farnborough Airshow was one of the most significant and frequently attended exhibitions of its kind, so Russia traditionally presented the whole range of its aviation equipment there, Kornev said. These are fighters Su-35 and MiG-29М/М2, jet trainer/light attack aircraft Yak-130, military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90А and combat helicopters Mi-35М, Mi-28NE and Ka-52.
All the machines mentioned were actively promoted on the international market, but this year, the exhibition would see only civil aircraft Sukhoi Superjet-100 full-size version, Kornev added.
This year’s airshow opens on July 14 and closes on July 20. One of the world’s major airshows held since 1948, Farnborough will present the latest aviation samples and spacecraft of the leading producers. The previous show ended with $72 billion worth of contracts and agreements for about 750 aviation unit supplies.
The show will welcome more than 1,000 companies from 37 countries on a total display area of 100,000 square meters. Flight and field programs will demonstrate military and civil aviation from ten countries - Russia, US, Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Canada, Brazil, Switzerland and Qatar. Britain and the US will lead the show with 339 and 294 companies presented respectively.
