JSC Rosoboronexport, a subsidiary of Rostec State Corporation, will discuss with its Indian partners joint projects for further modernisation of the Indian armed forces at the DEFEXPO India 2016 exhibition.

“India is willing to develop its own defence industry in accordance with the ‘Make in India’ programme. We are ready to propose new largescale projects for implementation in the interests of all military services with the most extensive involvement of Indian businesses, of relevant technology transfers and organisation of joint and license productions. At present we are in talks on the feasibility of developing Project 75(I) submarines based on the Amur-1650 diesel-electric submarines, and on the procurement of an additional lot of Project 11356 frigates and setting up of their license production in India”, — said Sergei Goreslavsky, deputy director general of JSC Rosoboronexport who heads the joint delegation of Rostec State Corporation and JSC Rosoboronexport.

At the stand one will find promotional materials on more than 200 defense items.

It is expected that foreign specialists will pay special attention to T-90MS MBT, BMP-3 IFV, Kalashnikov assault rifles of the hundredth series, ADs S-400, Pantsir-S1 and Tor-M2KM (mounted on the Indian-made TATA chassis), Amur-1650 submarine, Project 11356 frigate, Project 11711E large landing ship, Project 21301 rescue vessel, and Project 12701 Alexandrite-E mine countermeasures ship.

JSC Rosoboronexport will also market a new comprehensive project named “Integrated Security Systems” which has absorbed all Russian and global experience amassed in the design and implementation of counter-terrorist and law-enforcement support systems, and a project for the development of an automated tactical command and control system adapted to meet the requirements of the Indian armed forces. The implementation of these projects suggests wide cooperation with Indian companies. Besides, development costs can be significantly cut.

The newest Verba man-portable air defence missile system will be shown for the first time at a foreign exhibition. It boasts enhanced combat capabilities, in comparison with its predecessors, including engagement of such small-size targets as cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Rosoboronexport will also explore with Indian partners issues concerning maintenance and upgrading of earlier supplied equipment.

The Russian delegation will hold a press conference at Hall 8 (Media Centre, Conference Room) on 29 March 2016 at 11.15 AM. Journalists are welcome to attend the event. JSC Rosoboronexport also invites all interested specialists to see presentations at Hall 8 (Media Centre, Conference Room):
“Integrated Security Systems” on 29 March 2016, 13:45 - 14:15
“Automated Tactical Command and Control System” on 30 March 2016, 11:15- 12:15.
