PATRIOT PARK /Moscow Region/, August 15. /TASS/. Russian-made Su-35 fighter jets and Ka-52 assault helicopters enjoy increased demand among foreign customers following their combat employment in the zone of the special military operation in Ukraine, state arms seller Rosoboronexport CEO Alexander Mikheyev told TASS at the Army 2023 international military-technical forum on Tuesday.
"If we speak about specific models that enjoy increased demand following their combat employment, these are Su-35 fighters, Ka-52 combat helicopters and air-launched guided munitions, T-90 tanks, the TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system, the 152mm and 155mm Msta-S self-propelled howitzer, the Tornado-G and Tornado-S multiple launch rocket systems, the Tigr and Taifun armored vehicles, the Orlan and Orion-E drone systems, the Kub-E loitering munition, air defense and electronic warfare systems, counter-drone systems and small arms," the chief executive said.

Russian defense enterprises and we get feedback directly from the zone of the special operation and promptly make conclusions.
