The defense Ministry confirmed the increase in demand for Russian weapons

The order book of the Russian defense industrial complex has been formed for the next few years, interest in the Russian arms significantly increased after the operation in Syria, said Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin.

The weapon, which showed itself well in the course of the actual fighting in Syria, clearly confirmed the quality of Russian defense products. Therefore, the demand for individual samples today exceeds the ability to supply them abroad,
quotes Fomin Kommersant.

In his opinion, the country's ability to develop and produce modern weapons is “the main sign of the possession of the highest technologies.”

There are only two countries in the world capable of supplying the entire line of weapons - these are Russia and the United States,
noted the deputy minister.

Earlier, Rosoboronexport CEO Alexander Mikheyev and USC Head Alexei Rakhmanov spoke about the growth in demand for Russian weapons.

According to the latter, the value of the total portfolio for the next 15 years will exceed 1 trillion. rub. In 2016, Russia managed to deliver weapons and military equipment abroad worth more than $ 15 billion.

    He Alexei Rakhmanov forgot to say how many of our military orders out of this order for 1 trillion?
    The interview is not very, the author of the program deer in the navy, as in other things and in armament as a whole, does not understand the word at all. One could ask the head of the USC about something completely different.
    Well, in principle, who wants to take a look yourself.

        This is even lower, why do representatives of the state-owned enterprise go there?

        Not at all, Alexei Rakhmanov is a good fellow, quite knowledgeable in factology owns the industry as a whole and in particular in the USC. In numbers too.
        That's who wants to get acquainted with a normal interview. Please, in general, it is very interesting and informative.

    ... we ourselves also need to "forge" weapons for the future ... in today's life will come in handy ...

      Yes, stop, the main thing is sales, but enough for the defense of Russia. So Ukraine will bypass us. Probably the liberalists are waiting for this.

        Sales are needed to increase the capacity of our defense industry! The more we sell, the more money for the development of our own military equipment ... For modernization, the creation of new samples, as well as for new research!
        Not everything should go to the budget!

        Ukraine will not bypass us, weapons are primarily a deterrent and not for firing at civilians. Therefore, the demand for our weapons is growing, and secondly, we must first take care of ourselves.

    Just do not reassure yourself. Need to sell even more.

      15 billion, this is not much, Like 1 trillion rubles in 15 years. And this is against the backdrop of such a successful (sorry gentlemen military) Advertising campaign in Syria.

    My friend was once a military adviser in Libya. So the base commander, Colonel, was a millionaire, owned a chain of stores throughout Libya. What this policy led to is evident from the fate of Gaddafi. The Ministry of Defense must do DEFENSE! And do not trade. For trade there are traders - the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Trade.

      Moreover, it is impossible to categorically put traders at the head of the state. Therefore, in Ancient Russia there was a division - soldiers separately, merchants separately. Even the idol of Veles (patron of commerce), in Kiev, stood separately on the pier.

    Interestingly, 15 years old, what kind of weapons will they make? Or maybe all the same, more factories of the military-industrial complex can be built to fulfill orders in 1-3 years? Or did our oligarchs only learn to privatize?

    Well, actually - that's a little over $ 1 billion a year. The cost of one "Ashen" is $ 1 billion, and here for the entire USC corporation - in my opinion this is very small

      Evgeniy667b 22 December 2017 12: 04
      And what percentage of the transaction do you think the corporation will receive? Well, maybe on the "Raptor" and scraped. And the fact that they are stealing in Rostec and USC in particular is personal money, they have nothing to do with production

    The most important! Is the RF Ministry of Defense a trading organization?
    What does the military have to do with hucksters?
    Military! It is up to you to learn to use weapons that the Motherland has entrusted to you.
    And hucksters owe it profitably, for the homeland, to sell it.
    And the shoemaker shouldn’t bake pies, and the baker should sharpen his boots.
    The deputy minister was found the same for me.
    Wanted to Manturov?

    Judging by the number of enemies, an increase in demand for our ammunition ... released from the barrel is expected.
