The 4-th International Exhibition of Defense Technologies SITDEF-2013 is starting today in Lima, which runs until May 19. Companies from 24 countries take part in the showroom.
On the eve of the opening of the exhibition in an interview with RIA News»The head of the regional department of Rosoboronexport and the head of the company's delegation at the SITDEF-2013 exhibition Sergey Ladygin said that the Peruvian side is taking an active interest in the T-90C MBT.
In addition, he said, “Peru is currently showing interest in Russian aviation and automotive technology. There are appeals regarding the possible supply of air defense systems, anti-tank systems, engineering and construction equipment, components and spare parts. ”
S. Ladygin stressed that Rosoboronexport considers promising areas of cooperation as the delivery of Su-30 type airplanes, Mi-171Sh helicopters, T-90C MBT, Smerch MLRS, Pantsir-C1 ZRPK, as well as additional property to ATCM "Cornet-E."
According to TSAMTO, Russia has good chances to expand its presence in the arms market of Peru due to an active marketing policy to promote the Russian defense industry. In addition, the current situation on the Peru market has been favorable due to the cancellation of the results of a number of previously announced tenders, where Russia has lost to its competitors, and now it can again fight for orders. This applies to short-range and medium-range air defense systems, OBT and MANPADS.
The program of procurement of air defense systems of short and medium range
In April, 2012, the Ministry of Defense of Peru announced the cancellation of the decision to issue a contract for the supply of short and medium-range air defense systems to the international Air Force TRIAD consortium. The project cost was estimated at 150 million dollars.
The TRIAD consortium, which included the American company Northrop Grumman, the Israeli Raphael and the Polish group Bumar, proposed the 3 early warning radar AN / TPS-78, the short-range air defense system Spider-SR, and the Poprad air defense system from Peru. "With the" Thunder "MANPADS.
In addition to the TRIAD consortium, Rosoboronexport and Chinese companies CETC and CPMIEC took part in the tender.
After a thorough review of the evaluation procedure, the special commission announced that the acquisition program should be canceled due to “procedural errors”.
MBT Procurement Program
Initially, Peru’s defense department intended to purchase manufactured by the Chinese corporation NORINCO MBT MBT-2000, the consignment of which was delivered to the country for evaluation.
Nevertheless, as it turned out later, the Chinese side misinformed the Peruvian defense department about its permission to re-export the tanks MVT-2000 engine-transmission compartments with a 6TD-2 engine and a Ukrainian-made transmission.
Under pressure from the opposition, the defense ministry of Peru decided to cancel the contract and postpone the MBT procurement program to a later date.
MANPADS Procurement Program
According to the Infodifensa agency, the Peruvian Ground Forces canceled the contract for the purchase of Chiron MANPADS produced by the South Korean company LIG Nex1.
In December 2012, the Ministry of Defense Peru summed up the tender for the supply of MANPADS, the winner of which was the South Korean company LIG Nex1, which offered KP-SAM MANPADS (“Shin Gang”; Shin Gung; export name - “Chiron”; Chiron). The contract worth 109,15 of new salts (42,87 million dollars) provided for the supply of 18 launchers, more 100 missiles, 3 radar, simulators, and provision of services for personnel training and equipment maintenance.
The proposals for the competition were also submitted by the China Precision Engineering Import-Export Corporation CPMIEC (MANPADS QW-18; FN-16) and Rosoboronexport (Igla-S).
After selecting the winner of LIG Nex1, two other bidders filed protests. CPMIEC believed it should win, because it offered the lowest price for the delivery of QW-18 MANPADS. In turn, Rosoboronexport stated that the South Korean MANPADS includes technologies for the export of which to third countries the Russian side did not give consent. The South Korean company claimed that only national technologies allowed for sale abroad were used in the complex.
Apparently, Rosoboronexport was able to confirm its statements with the relevant documents. At the same time, the South Korean company demanded an increase in prepayment from 30% to 60%. This led to a decision to cancel the contract with LIG Nex1.
Other promising programs
Fighter purchase program
Proposals for the sale of Peruvian air force fighters were presented by Dassault (Rafale), Eurofighter (EF-2000 Typhoon Tranche 3), SAAB (JAS-39 Gripen), Rosoboronexport (Su-30 and MiG-29) and Boeing (F / A-18E / F Super Hornet).
In addition, as it became known in January 2013, the Government of Spain offered the EF-20 "Typhoon" Tranche 2000 fighter jets to the Peru Air Force 1.
At the same time, due to the limited military budget of Peru, the implementation of the program for the purchase of fighters in the short term seems unlikely.
The procurement program 24 multipurpose military transport helicopters
At the end of March 2013, the Ministry of Defense of Peru submitted for approval to the Ministry of Economy and Finance a project to finance the procurement of 24 multi-purpose military transport helicopters Mi-171Ш.
According to information sources in the Ministry of Defense of Peru, the cost of one helicopter will be 16,95 million dollars (the total cost of 24 units - 406,8 million dollars).
The Peruvian Command has sent a request for the purchase of 18 new helicopters at the end of 2012. In the future, the number of cars scheduled for purchase increased to 24 units.
The main bidders for the supply were called “Eurocopter” with AS-332C1 “Super Puma” and AS-532 “Cougar” and OJSC “Helicopters of Russia” with Mi-171Sh.
In early March of this year, the evaluation of the proposals of two applicants by a special commission began. As a result, after analyzing the report of the technical committee on the recommendation of the Joint Command of the Peruvian Armed Forces and Army Aviation, a decision was made in favor of the Mi-171Ш.
According to local analysts, the adoption of the Russian proposal was expected due to lower cost, unpretentiousness in operation, greater payload, the availability of infrastructure and maintenance skills for Mi helicopters.
