Instead of Le Bourget and Farnborough - Zhuhai?
We are already accustomed and quite understandable to the fact that China is increasingly turning into a superpower. And besides aircraft carriers (is) nuclear weapons (there is), advances in space (in the future, but for now with our help), the air show is also needed in an amicable way. And at least not worse than MAX, Le Bourget or Farnborough.
The Chinese Aerospace Show in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province is held until once every two years. This is the youngest air show in the world, it is held only for the eleventh time. But still ahead.
Considering our uneasy relations with Europe, and even more so with America, God himself commanded to present everything possible at the Chinese exhibition.
And we can show a lot of things.
Moreover, even though China is gradually entering the global aviation market, however, trade and interaction between our countries in the aerospace industry is more than close.
The 5 generation Chinese fighter J-20 is the star of the show.
Probably because the fact that our exhibition will be the largest, excluding, of course, the owners, will not cause surprise. The total area of exposure only Rosoboronexport will be more than 1500 square meters. And the total number of members of the Russian delegation is about 400 people. And some of them are representatives of the government, obviously, ready to sign contracts and contracts at the highest level.
One of the signs of a successful air show can be considered that? That's right, the presence of Russian aerobatic teams on it. The best in the world. It is possible without them, as, for example, the Europeans have managed, but the level is not the same, agree.
Both Russian Knights and Swifts arrived in Zhuhai. Pilots will show synchronous and group “barrels”, “Nesterov’s noose”, counter aerobatics and their corporate “Cuban diamond”. Naturally, our pilots will perform on the first day at the opening ceremony.
However, the Chinese would not be Chinese if they had not prepared something original. Yes, the Chinese surprise is very, very impressive. First time in stories world airshows will be able to see the performance of the international aerobatic team, formed from the Chinese group "Ba I", the British "Red Arrows" and our "Russian Knights" and "Swifts".
Representatives of Russian defense companies will present 220 samples of military equipment. In a single Russian exposition, in addition to the enterprises represented by Rosoboronexport, Roscosmos will exhibit its samples. In total, 49 companies from our country will be present at the exhibition with their products.
The greatest interest among representatives of foreign delegations from Asia was caused in advance by the exposition of the Almaz-Antey concern.
Naturally, the latest modifications of the air defense systems will be shown to potential buyers on site: C-400 Triumph, C-300BM Antey-2500, C-300PMU2 Favorite. As well as their service programs. There is one “highlight” here: some Asian countries are ready to purchase C-300 or even following the example of China, C-400, provided they create service centers to service Russian systems and complexes.
There is something to think about and talk about.
European salons, of course, are attractive both by the history and the market they represent. But a legitimate question arises: are our products happy there?
The question is rhetorical. And the answer to this was the fact that the Russian exhibition is the largest not only in the history of the Chinese air show, but also in the history of all international air shows abroad, in which Russia took part.
In any case, our potential allies and partners (without quotes) have something to look at from what carries the stamp "Made in Russia".
