“The Middle East arms market is essential to us. The countries of the region traditionally equip their armies with the most advanced types of weapons and military equipment. It’s no secret that they pay great attention to Russian air defense equipment, including the S-400 Triumf systems, which work flawlessly today in the neighboring Syria. We also see interest in the latest combat aircraft, for example, the Su-35 multipurpose super-maneuverable fighter jet, which this year will participate for the first time in the Dubai air show with its flight demo program,” said Sergei Kornev.

Russia’s partners in the region are expected to take a keen interest in the Ka-52 and Mi-28NE attack helicopters, Mi-171Sh military transport helicopter, Mi-35M transport/attack helicopter, Yak-130 training (combat training) aircraft, MiG-29M multifunctional front-line fighter, Su-35 multi-role super-maneuverable fighter.
