The flagship of the world air defense system, the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft complex, was acquired by such arms import giants as India, China and Turkey. The contract with the latter caused a diplomatic storm in NATO and a cooling of Ankara’s relations with Washington. The United States has excluded Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet partnership program and imposed sanctions against it. In addition to being effective on the diplomatic front, Triumph is very effective in missile defense: due to its versatility and a large arsenal of specialized missiles, the complex can operate at different ranges, from very small to very large.
One of the most advanced Russian fighters at a favorable price has many technical advantages. It can fly at supersonic speed without using afterburner, has super-maneuverability – due to engines with thrust vector control – and a powerful radar with AFAR. The aircraft is equipped with an effective electronic suppression system capable of deflecting American AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles and the like from it. The Su-35’s own arsenal is represented by a versatile armament system with 12 suspension points. The first foreign customer of the fighter was China, which signed a contract for 24 aircraft in 2015.
Kalashnikov assault rifle
From the progenitor of the AK-47 series to the modern AK-12, Kalashnikovs remain one of the most popular weapons in the world. Due to low production costs, simplicity of design, legendary reliability and durability, Kalashnikov assault rifles continue to be used in all corners of the planet.
The export version of the T-90MBT main battle tank is equipped with a 125-mm smoothbore cannon, an 840-horsepower engine, Kontakt-5 reactive armor and a powerful Shtora guided ammunition suppression system. The creators of the T-90 avoid expensive things that are installed on Western counterparts to ensure a balance of firepower, durability and economic efficiency. This made the tank a bestseller in the countries of the second and third world, it was purchased by Azerbaijan, India, Libya and Turkmenistan.
The fifth generation fighter is one of the most ambitious Russian projects. This aircraft is designed to combine the best-in-class aerodynamic performance with stealth and a powerful arsenal of the latest air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles – it can also carry hypersonic ammunition. Although serial production of the aircraft has recently begun, the export version of the aircraft is already actively being offered to potential customers – for example, India, China and Turkey.
