NEW DELHI (PTI): Eyeing multi-billion dollar deals, Russia is sending a 500-member delegation to the defence expo which stared on Monday at Naqueri Quitol in Quepem Taluka, South Goa.

From Kamov helicopters to latest Kalashnikov rifles, Russia is exhibiting a whopping 800 defence-related products at the four-day exhibition beginning March 28.

In addition, Rostec State Corporation, an umbrella organisation in Russia of about 700 companies, intends to discuss creation of joint production of ammunition with the Defence Ministry. United Engine Corporation (UEC) will present models of aircraft and marine engines.

"We are very excited to come to India to be part of Defexpo India 2016. These are exciting times for India's defence industry as Asia's geo-politics increasingly takes shape around India," said Sergei Chemezov, CEO of Rostec State Corporation.

He added that Russia is deeply committed to partnering with India in the 'Make in India' endeavour and to strengthen partnerships, both from manufacturing and joint development perspectives for military and civil cooperation.

Russian Helicopters will showcase the Mi-38 and Ka-226T during the event.

The delegation will hold talks with state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and Pawan Hans Limited, which operates helicopters Mi-172 and other aircraft.

Russian Helicopters also plans to organise a presentation of the Mi-38 and Mi-171A2 for Pawan Hans Limited.
