NEW DELHI (BNS): Russia plans to promote a large number of army and naval equipment, air defence systems and aircraft models at DEFEXPO 2014 besides holding discussions on industrial cooperation with India.

Expanding joint development and production efforts on weaponry and military equipment will be among the key topics during talks between Rosoboronexport and Indian partners at the eight edition of the defence exhibition which began at Pragati Maidan today.

On Army weaponry, Rosoboronexport will hold talks with Indian partners on current and future projects, including upgrading of previously delivered equipment, including the BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, T-72 and the T-90S tanks.

The Company expects to discuss the progress of the tender to supply self-propelled artillery systems. Among its contenders is the Russian upgraded Msta-S 155mm self-propelled howitzer, which is undergoing trials in India besides the Russian-Indian joint venture to manufacture rocket projectiles for the Smerch multiple launch rocket system.

After-sales service of the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya will be among the naval issues to be discussed. In addition, Rosoboronexport will continue consultations to promote the diesel-electric submarine Amur-1650 within the upcoming tender for design and construction of the Project 75I submarines for the Indian Navy, as well as to supply an additional series of Project 11356 frigates. In the aviation segment, of interest are the Ka-226T light utility helicopter.

Rosoboronexport, a subsidiary of the Rostec Corporation, is the sole state-owned arms trade company in the Russian Federation authorized to export the full range of military and dual-purpose products, technologies and services.
