The Defense News publication ranked the most successful defense enterprises in the world. As it turned out, only Russian companies showed impressive growth over the past year.


Rating: Russian defense industry showed a staggering growth


The total revenue of 100 of the largest arms manufacturers in 2012 decreased by 13 billion dollars, or 3%, compared to last year. The trend to a decline persists for the second year in a row - in 2011, revenues declined by 1%, reports Defense News.

This did not come as a surprise, since the United States and the countries of Europe, which were facing a crisis, previously reported a reduction in military spending.

At the same time, Russian companies showed “staggering” growth, Defense News noted. So, the Almaz-Antey concern rose to 11 places in the world ranking (from 25-th to 14-e) and entered the top five of the rating in Europe with revenue growth of 62%. Russian Helicopters (24-place in the world ranking) increased profits by 32%, United Engine Company (49-place) added 49%, and RTI (80-place) showed 12-percent growth.

At the same time, all Russian aircraft manufacturers: Sukhoi (43-th place), Irkut (62-th place) and MiG (93-th place) showed a negative result.

Experts explain the increase in profits of Russian companies by a huge increase in exports weapons, which reached a record 14 billion in 2012, which is 6% more than 2011 of the year. Russia, the second largest arms exporter after the United States, has more than doubled its supplies abroad since 2005, the newspaper notes.

In addition, Defense News notes, Russian companies managed to achieve such indicators due to increased defense spending by India and China.

The return of Russian products to the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget in 2013 also contributed to this, according to the publication.

The first five in the world rating of defense enterprises is as follows.

1. Lockheed Martin, USA (profit - 44 billion 883 million dollars, growth - 2,1%).

2. Boeing, USA (31 billion 378 million dollars, 2,2%).

3. BAE, United Kingdom (26 billion 813 million dollars, –8%).

4. Raytheon, USA (22 billion 705 million dollars, –1,5%).

5. General Dynamics, USA (21 billion 23 million dollars, –10,5%).

    Ordinary citizens are not interested in how much our defense industry sold or earned, we are interested in how much equipment has been delivered to our army!

      - Export leads to the fame of one or another Russian military brand, and therefore to the recognition of Russia as a whole. "Oh! Bitch!" - usually a foreigner with this exclamation sounds admiration. Owning a world-famous company raises the prestige of the state and pride in their country.
      I agree that if the things described are an empty phrase for you, I would see the situation like this - we transfer the Sukhoi company to Kazakhstan (without technology and everything, all secrets, the main thing is that everyone would know that Sukhoi is a Kazakhstan company), and there, as new owners, we sharply reduce exports and increase deliveries to your army to full saturation. Do you agree? Indeed, for you the Sukhoi brand is an empty phrase, you need fighters ...

        I think he didn’t mean it. You are too critical of his words. He means first of all we, and then everyone else! And for a full load without downtime, deliveries abroad are also needed, but to where we are welcomed and reach out.

          And is it in the West that they call us militarists and traders in death? Films about us in Hollywood (Armory Baron, etc.). And what are Enlightened Europeans and democratic Americans themselves?

          Their hucksters clearly overtook ours in all respects. And they handed more tanks to the Papuans, they sold more planes to Jews, at least chem. weapons are not traded and thanks there.
          In all the first places of the ratings, I see only Western faces.

          These are we militarists!

    A good example, the state is investing money in the military-industrial complex, it is updating production, sales are growing. So they would invest in farmers, long ago the whole world would fill up agricultural products and simultaneously solve problems with demography, development of regions, in the countryside they are more willing to give birth to children.

    Great news!!! But do not forget that our country is in colonial status. We are forbidden to have agricultural products, the Academy of Sciences, space, the aviation industry, etc. Therefore, it is not necessary to be surprised that money is not invested somewhere or is not invested enough. Lost the cold war - pay. Not a single colony in history has flourished. We need to wake up and reset American control, then we will have everything. And the military-industrial complex is ten times more powerful, and we’ll overwhelm everyone with our products, and our planes will replace the boeing and so on.

      I have to agree, otherwise the fact cannot be explained, we sell oil for candy wrappers, we keep candy wrappers in the foreign exchange reserve. For these candy wrappers we re-buy virtual candy wrappers American debt obligations, we credit the foreign economy at 1% per annum.

    yes, from the articles it’s evident that they woke up, the equipment went to the troops and it would be better to fix the time as in Turkey they didn’t settle down with deliveries on time

    The increase in exports is primarily due to the increased influence of Russia in foreign policy. Buying weapons, countries are looking for a reliable supplier in the long run, so that they do not fail when the mess begins.

    Not gloating, but Sukhoi, together with Pogosyan, for whom the government and the president had secured all the money from the aviation industry, was not up to par, where is Zin’s money ?, where are the fighters in our army?

    Good It’s interesting, judging by the numbers, the rating was compiled according to the volume of revenues of the defense industry enterprises, then excuse me, kind rating compilers, those companies on the list bend their prices insanely, and politics helps sell them! It seems to me that it’s not entirely correct to judge by profit (where anything, but not in the defense industry, because in it the laws of the economy have (had) the property not to act), although this is an important indicator.

    To all this positive, it is still necessary to restore order in production discipline at defense industry enterprises. For this, it is necessary to raise the status of special departments at these enterprises.

    “There will be, will be, we will start supplying from 2014. Here's how to turn around ...” - rephrasing quotes from similar topics.
    But only when deployed and at what pace will they deliver?

    That's great! Finally, the good news. Putin must finally get rid of inferiority complexes and firmly state his claims in geopolitics. The Middle East is ready for change. Asia is changing with might and main. China is our natural and real ally. What else is needed? Russia must occupy its territory and water area.
