Rosoboronexport will present modern Russian weapons and military equipment, special equipment, equipage and body armor a the 10th International Exhibition of Special Forces (SOFEX-2014), to be held from 6 to 8 May 2014 in Amman (Jordan).

“The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan pays special attention to security problems, special units’ operations, their equipage and equipping with modern technical and combat means. Therefore SOFEX is not only a suitable platform to showcase products, but it is also instrumental in catching the world's attention to the issue and “comparing notes” in a professional environment,” - said Valery Varlamov who heads the Rosoboronexport’s delegation at the exhibition. 

Rosoboronexport expects increased interest among foreign specialists in Russia's silent and flameless weapons, sniper rifles, submachine guns and special short-range weapons. Among them are the 9mm PP-2000 submachine gun, 12.7mm OSV-96 sniper rifle, Bur compact grenade launcher, 9mm PP-19 -01 Vityaz submachine gun, 18.5mm 18.5KS-K special carbine, and GM-94 police grenade launcher. 

The stand will exhibit an extended range of ammunition for Russian close combat weapons, both lethal (including thermobaric) and non-lethal (striking/shock, irritant, stun and traumatic). 
Rosoboronexport will also present different models of armored vehicles designed to transport and provide fire support to police and special units. These include the world’s popular BMP-3M infantry fighting vehicles, BTR-80A armored personnel carriers, Tigr and Federal armored cars as well as the Tornado special riot control vehicle. 

“The exhibition traditionally attracts many high-ranking representatives of law enforcement agencies of the Middle East countries. That is why, together with special equipment and weapons, we are willing to talk about the main Russian export land forces’ materiel as well as Mi-17 and Ka-226T type helicopters that can be extensively used in operations against extremist and terrorist groups,” - said Valery Varlamov.
