Foreign Vessel to Be Fitted With Russian Air Defenses for First Time Ever

Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport has signed a contract to integrate the Russian Palma air defense system into the armaments system of a foreign customer’s ship, Rosoboronexport Director General Alexander Mikheev told Sputnik on 25 August.

This is one of the nearly 20 contracts that Rosoboronexport has signed at the ongoing Army-2021 military forum.

“At Army-2021, Rosoboronexport signed its first contract for the integration of Russia’s shipborne artillery missile system Palma into the armaments system of a foreign customer’s ship”, Mikheev said.

Industrial partnerships are one of the fastest growing trends on the global arms market, the Rosoboronexport chief added, pointing to his agency’s rich technology transfer portfolio.

“We have a large-scale long-term programme of cooperation with India, we also have big joint projects with Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Brazil, Jordan, and a number of other countries”, Mikheev said.
