        France has bypassed the UK and Germany among European exporters and is second only to the USA, Russia and China in the world.

        It is very interesting to whom the French sold weapons ... what

          I hope, in light of recent events, we are not far from 1 place! There’s such an advertisement for our weapons in real combat conditions! And customers are not fools. They see the truth, not propaganda, and ZZa.sra..y ZZapadny PR! Already, many are considering how to get rid of ties and contracts with expensive and less effective West-Western weapons.

        I ask you to take into account an UNIMPORTANT FACT, a considerable part of the US weapons are sold to NATO members and Europe (by and large, the US "soft occupation"), especially to its young "Members" who voluntarily / forcibly acquire the products of the American military-industrial complex because try to acquire weapons from someone else and not far off in the country "Maidan" ... We can observe the same picture in the countries already openly occupied by the USA ...
        So, in a fair fight on the arms market, the Russian Federation may well claim to be the first place without any "Shapkozakidatelstva" and if we also recall the embargo that the United States brazenly imposes on the supply of arms by Russia to certain countries (as an example for Iran, the S-300) then the picture for the USA will look far from rosy ...

          and if we recall also about the embargo that the USA impudently imposes on arms supplies by Russia to certain countries (as an example for Iran S-300)
          it’s not the United States that imposed, it’s Dmitry Anatolyevich, our main liberal, who decided to impose an embargo on his country

            Offensive types of weapons cannot be supplied to Iran - armored personnel carriers BMP tanks combat aircraft ships strike missiles can be delivered DEFENSE - air defense electronic warfare various radars transport aircraft and helicopters.
            The ban on the supply of S-300 to Iran is an initiative exclusively of our country. By the way, if it were not for the sanctions against Iran that we signed, Iran would now have purchased, according to various sources, at least eight billion dollars of our weapons.

              Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv regime didn’t even make it into the top ten arms suppliers, because more and more countries of the world realize that its low-grade fakes do not differ in quality or in some outstanding characteristics, but are essentially copies.
              Military concerns sound the alarm: in 3 years, exports have decreased almost twice
              Over the past three years, exports have fallen by almost half. In 2012, it amounted to 7,5 billion dollars, in a year 6,5 billion, in 2014 5,5 billion. "We expect that we will finish the current year with exports of 4-4,5 billion dollars," the prime minister warned Minister of Director of military concerns. According to their estimates, in 2015 the export of military equipment will fall to the lowest mark in the last 10 years.

        Guys, do you want to spit in the soul? The whole problem is that historically it has so happened that Russia, out of high-tech products, can’t do anything except competitive horseradish. Well, imagine the Russian export (to native components) of color televisions, food processors, smartphones and even the auto industry - I mean their characteristics, how they will look and how much they will cost. And if you also take into account how many kickbacks are included in the cost of production ... This is not for you to unfasten from superprofits from the sale of raw materials.
        So it turns out that we can then sell it.

          In addition to budget revenues, income from the sale of weapons allows keeping at the level of research and development of new weapons systems.

          If necessary, production facilities can be used to replenish their army.

          And what, excuse me, in your concept of high-tech products?
          Ie export of 7 billion software is not high-tech? And food processors - yes ?! Rosatom is also engaged in small technologies ???

            Who is the secret software leader from Russia who exports 7 billion?

            totally agree with Blondy. it is necessary to develop a "civil" industry. prides itself on the rosatom and weapons. I do not see anything wrong, in that Shtobi is proud of the production of cars, chemicals, building materials and even food processors.

            Example
            - civilian sales of Airbus in 2014 - 61 billion euros, military / weapons - 13 billion euros.
            - civilian sales even at Rheinmetall are higher - 2014 - 2,5 billion, military / weapons - 2,2 billion euros

            compare perspectives.

              For clarity, for example, Russian companies in the information security sector are very noticeable: in particular, the Russian company Kaspersky Lab is among some of the top three leading global manufacturers of anti-virus programs by some indicators. Such Russian companies as InfoWatch (for example, Data Loss Prevention product), Positive Technologies (solutions for protecting web applications) are also developing successfully in this sector.
              In addition, in particular, the Russian company Diasoft, which four years ago concluded an agreement on global cooperation with IBM, is selling its banking solutions not bad. One can say the Russian giant in the field of cloud solutions is becoming the Russian company Acronis, the Russian company Parallels has gained high authority in the field of virtualization and automation of hosting services. The Russian company ABBYY, which recently released products for corporate search and retrieval of data based on Compreno's technology for understanding, analyzing and translating texts, is successfully developing its activities. The Russian company Prognoz successfully promotes its products in the field of business intelligence (BI). And the Yekaterinburg-based company Naumen is successfully promoting primarily its unique solutions for call centers in the Asian markets. As for the export of custom software development services, Russian companies such as Luxoft, Epam regularly appear in world ratings, recently the Mera Nizhny Novgorod company and the Russian DataArt and Auriga companies have entered the world elite, and such ratings also appear in foreign ratings Russian custom software developers like First Line Software, Reksoft and others.

    We do everything right. We need to sell high-tech products in those markets where we have a competitive advantage. Well, "caches" in high-tech weapons are the norm for all sellers. In short, such a weapon does not fight against the seller. Usually.
    Well, the fact that the military-industrial complex is "dragging" all other sectors of the economy along with it is a no brainer. And the fact that many liberals from the economy yell that most of the GDP is the service sector - then let them eat these "services" for breakfast. They ride on them, dress in them, live on them and fill them into the tanks of cars. Once I had to read how much of the US GDP is attorney services. It seemed to me that this share is excessive - about 17%!
    It was a long time ago, I won’t worry about the accuracy of the numbers. But impressive, isn't it? And how do you like trading gold on the exchange, pieces of paper under which physical gold is less than a percent? Such a pyramid cannot be built forever. The future belongs to the country in which there is the production of everything necessary for its existence. And pineapples and coffee that do not grow on the territory can be bought.

We will sell to everyone who buys, and then at least a flood. The madness is complete !!! And the money Nabiullina drives to American banks !? Stop lying to yourself that this is a business.

    In the United States, a citizen and defense industry work together and adopt technologies from each other. And our defense industry is a closed world. As a result, the defense industry makes a high-quality product and the citizen is retarded.
