Joint projects for all the three services are being implemented in cooperation between enterprises of India and Russia that is unique for the global market. “They are being implemented on the basis of a long-term programme of military-technical cooperation and are fully consistent with the Make in India programme,” Rosoboronexport’s Director General Alexander Mikheev, tells Financial Express Online.
Adding, “A remarkable example of large-scale cooperation in the aerospace sector is the programme of the licensed production in India jointly with HAL of Su-30MKI fighter jets. The programme resulted in the introduction into the Indian Air Force of an aircraft, which became a benchmark for a highly effective heavy multirole fighter jet.”
Rosoboronexport is actively working with large industrial companies of India and always appreciates the highest level of their expertise and is expected to further expand cooperation with India in the aerospace domain. “The company is ready to offer the brand-new products and technological solutions of the Russian industry,” he adds.
In an interaction with Financial Express Online on the eve of the 13th edition of Aero-India 2021, he said “Rosoboronexport will be presenting models of the Su-57E fifth generation fighter jet, the Su-35 multirole fighter jet, the Il-78MK-90A tanker aircraft, the Ka-226 light multipurpose helicopter, the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft gun-missile system, Typhoon protected vehicles and other products.”
