Rosoboronexport will organize the Russian exhibit display at the Airshow China International Aerospace Exhibition 2016, which will take place from November 1 to 6 in Zhuhai, China.

At the Russian exhibit, visitors will be able to get acquainted with the features of the latest Russian Su-35 fighters, Mi-35M helicopters and Pantsir-S1 air defense missile/gun systems.

In addition to the above weaponry, Rosoboronexport will also showcase the Su-32 and Yak-130 aircraft, Ka-52 and Mi-26 helicopters, as well as air defense systems. Rosoboronexport and Russian manufacturers will demonstrate more than 280 pieces of military hardware in China.

The joint Russian delegation will be headed by Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Deputy Director Vladimir Drozhzhov.

“For us, participation in Airshow China 2016 is a key area of marketing activity. It is one of the largest platforms in the Asia-Pacific Region to showcase modern air weapons and equipment. That is why here Rosoboronexport offers foreign customers the most in-demand combat-proven Russian military hardware, which has earned high praise from many countries,” said Sergey Kornev, Head of Rosoboronexport’s Air Force Equipment Export Department.

The Russian Knights and Swifts aerobatics teams will perform in the sky over Zhuhai, showcasing aerobatics with Su-27 and MiG-29 aircraft.

“Russia is ready to continue to actively develop mutually beneficial partnership with China in the field of defense and security. In fact, this is evidenced by major contracts to supply the Chinese armed forces with modern Russian fighters and SAM systems concluded in recent years,” said Sergey Kornev.
