India’s largest aerospace show will run in the city of Bangalore on February 3-5

MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec will feature over 200 weapon systems at the Aero India 2021 aerospace show that will run in the Indian city of Bangalore on February 3-5, Rostec Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy Viktor Kladov told TASS on Monday.

"Overall, we will show over 200 military exhibits. We will also demonstrate the Su-57E [fifth-generation fighter]: we have brought to India the aircraft’s model that gives an idea about this unique fighter. We will also show our other bestsellers: the Su-35, the MiG-35D, the Il-76MD-90A(E) military transport plane and the Il-78MK-90A aerial refueling tanker," Kladov said.

Rostec will also feature a Ka-226T light multi-purpose helicopter at the Aero India 2021 aerospace show, he said.

"This is an ideal vehicle for local climatic and physical geographic conditions. I am confident that our other helicopters, such as the Mi-28NE, the Mi-171Sh and the Mi-17V-5, the Ka-52 reconnaissance and attack gunship and the Ka-31 radar surveillance helicopter will also capture attention," Kladov said.

"This year we will feature in Bangalore a lot of Russia’s latest systems: aircraft, air defense complexes, the armor and munitions. Also, we are planning to present our promising civil programs in the sphere of electronics, engine-and aircraft-making," he said.

Aero India is India’s largest aerospace show.
