Russian defense concern Almaz-Antey will showcase its anti-missile defense systems at the upcoming Indo-Defense 2014 in a bid to attract Asia-Pacific buyers, the company's Deputy CEO Arkady Nedashkovsky said Friday.

"Several countries in the region show interest in the concern's products, specifically our potential customers take interest in medium- and short-range air defense systems," Nedashkovsky said in a press statement.

The exhibition is scheduled to take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, from November 5-8.

"In Jakarta, the company will unveil models, placards and multimedia films on such [anti-ballistic missile] systems as S-300VM, Tor-M2E, Tor-M2KM, Buk-M2E, and Komar missile turrets designed for Igla manpads," the Russian weapons-maker said in a statement Friday.

The arms producer hopes that the forthcoming exhibition will give it an edge over its competitors by highlighting the advantages of Russia-made weapons.
