Russia to showcase advanced weaponry at arms show in Indonesia
Nine Russian defense companies will exhibit various types of sophisticated weaponry at an upcoming biennial arms exhibition in Indonesia, the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said.
Indo Defense 2010 Expo & Forum will be opened on November 10 in Jakarta to host over 400 exhibitors from 38 countries until November 13.
"Russia will exhibit various types of advanced equipment for the Ground Forces, the Air Force, air defense, the Navy, special forces, electronic warfare, military medicine and combat training," the service said in a statement on Wednesday.
Russia exports weaponry to over 100 countries.
Its main arms customers are India, Indonesia, Algeria, China, Venezuela, Malaysia and Syria. Vietnam also emerged as a key importer after it signed a deal to buy submarines, aircraft and other military hardware from Russia late last year.
Russia's arms exports are expected to hit an all-time high of over $10 billion in 2010.
