Dubai 2011: Russia displays its wares in own pavilion
Russian companies are heavily represented at the Dubai Airshow and they're demonstrating big ambitions for this region.
The joint Russian exhibition (pavilion: W560) has been organised by the state corporation Russian Technologies.
Rosoboronexport, the sole Russian exporter and importer of military and dual-purpose products, technologies and services, is representing a host of products from the Russian aerospace industry, including the Su-35 and MiG-29M/M2 multifunctional fighters, Yak-130 combat trainer and the Be-200 amphibious aircraft.
Nowadays military air systems make up the major part of Russia’s military sales, accounting for almost half of all foreign sales by Rosoboronexport.
Russian Helicopters, an Oboronprom United Industrial Corporation company, is turning the spotlight on the lightweight Mi-34C1, the Ka-32A11BC firefighter, and the latest update of the Mi-17, to name but a few Russian-made helicopters.
The airshow also features the products of the Compass Moscow Design Bureau, which specialises in state-of-the-art, high-precision navigation equipment.
And the latest and best models of civil and military aircraft are featured by United Aircraft Corporation, so visitors can get up close to the Sukhoi Superjet 100, Sukhoi Business Jet and MS-21.
A Russian Technologies spokesman said: “We see the Dubai Airshow as a fantastic opportunity to showcase the key achievements from the Russian aircraft industry.
“We have scheduled a number of meetings with existing and prospective customers during the event. We see the Middle East and North Africa as a region with good prospects for Russia with regards to the development of military and technical co-operation.”
