    Defensa.com has published a note with data on T-90 trials. I assume journalist made a typo and trials took place 17-19 september, not 17-19 october... I have translted some points.

    - First day it was really foggy and rainy. 1G46 could only operate to 300-350 meters. By using the thermal sight, shots were fired at targets 2.000-2.500 meters away.
    - The next 2 days climate conditions were optimal and gunnery tests were performed. T-90S fired on the move and statically. 38 125mm rounds were fired. 16 BM17, 12 BK16 and 10 OF36. Distance was 1.600-3.000 meters. The sucess rate was 94.7%.

    - PKMT and Kord machine guns were also tested by firing 600 rounds. The success rate was 75%. AT-11 Sniper missiles were fired at targets 3.000-5.000 meters away with 100% success rate.

    - A mobility test was carried out by running a circuit with ditches, hills and other natural obstacles. Distance was 130kms and "angles" were 25°-30° (does not specify which). It was raced in a 1.5km circuit against a T-55. The latter had a 100 meter advantage but T-90S overtook it. Finally, a T-55 driver was given a 15 minute training on T-90 and run through a circuit without problems.

    Sounds like a good tank to me...

    A lot of people get fixated on frontal armour or penetration performance of this or that ammo, but a tank is rather more than the thickness of its frontal armour or the penetration performance of its gun.

    Russia Offers Peru Helicopter Maintenance Center
    I think there is one already in Venezuela. In any case it would be an advantage, as Russian helicopters have been acquired by several countries in the region.

    Russia offers Chile localize production of weapons in the country

    "We are in talks on a wide range of weapons and civilian products - from small to Be-200, MS-21, SuperJet-100", - said the director FSMTC Fomin eve of the opening of the exhibition in Santiago weapons FIDAE.

    MOSCOW, March 25 - RIA Novosti. Chile Russia offers the entire spectrum of weapons and military equipment, including the possibility of localization of production in this country, told RIA Novosti FSMTC director Alexander Fomin.
    "We are in talks on a wide range of weapons and civilian products - from small to Be-200, MS-21, SuperJet-100" - said on the eve of the opening Fomin weapons exhibition in Santiago FIDAE.
    However, he stressed that Chile has traditionally buys weapons from Western manufacturers, primarily in the United States.
    "However, we are trying to overcome this tendency by such qualities of Russian weapons, reliability, ease of use, price-quality ratio," - said the director FSMTC.
    Furthermore, Russia offers not only ready samples of products, but also a license to manufacture these weapons in the country.
    "We offer our Chilean partners to localize production in the country, that is certainly a very beneficial aspect of our future contracts," - said Fomin.
    Chile's reaction to these proposals have not yet been reported.

    Mexico to upgrade its Mi-17 helicopters
    Russian Aviaton » Monday July 21, 2014 10:38 MSK

    Russian Helicopters Holding Company will upgrade the multi-role Mi-17 helicopters operated by the air forces of Mexico, Lenta.ru reports with reference to sources close to the enterprise. According to the sources, at least 9 vehicles of the type were delivered to Russia by two An-124-100 transport aircraft during the period from mid-June to early July 2014. The first upgraded Mi-17 will be delivered to Mexico in 2015.

    No details related to work carried out in the network of this contract have been unveiled. In May 2014 Mexican air forces stated that their fleet comprises 19 multi-role Mi-17 helicopters and two Mi-8Ts. Presumably, all the vehicles to be overhauled will be upgraded by Russian enterprises.

    Most likely that the contract for upgrading the helicopters was signed in December 2013, when the Mexican Ministry of Defense purchased 14 new Mi-17 helicopters (manufactured by Russian Helicopters) worth $284.8 million. The new helicopters will be delivered to National Forestry Commission of Mexico; the vehicles will be used for fire-fighting. These helicopters will be piloted by the pilots of Mexican air forces.

    Initially Mexican air forces operated 24 Mi-17 helicopters purchased in two batches (each one included 12 vehicles of the type) in 1996 and 1998. The deliveries were completed in 1999. The same year Mexico purchased 12 used Mi-8T helicopters; later most of them were replaced by new multi-role EC725 Caracal helicopters.

    The purchase of new helicopters and upgrade of the currently operated vehicles are carried out by the Mexican Ministry of Defense in the network of a national program aimed at expanding the combat capabilities of Mexican air forces. The program will be implemented during 2013-2018 period; under this document the number of helicopters operated by the country’s air forces will be increased from 47 to 138 ones. So far the Mexican air forces have placed an order for 18 UH-60M Black Hawk (USA) and six AW109SP (Italy) helicopters.

    Mexico plans to purchase 53 more new helicopters by 2018, however, the type of these vehicles has not been unveiled.

    Russia to Supply T-90S Tanks to Peru in Medium-Term: Rosoboronexport

    MOSCOW, September 20 (RIA Novosti) - Peru is interested in a supply of Russian T-90S tanks, but plans are currently considered a medium-term project, Russia's state arms exporter Rosoboronexport deputy general director Sergei Goreslavsky has told RIA Novosti during the exhibition, Africa Aerospace and Defence 2014.

    "In collaboration with Uralvagonzavod, Rosoboronexport is working hard to promote the T -90S. This project continues to be the focus of Peruvian leaders, but is has earned a medium-term due to a number of political circumstances, such as the upcoming presidential elections," said Goreslavsky.

    Peru's Ministry of Defense announced the possibility of buying some 140 T-90S tanks in the future after receiving prototypes of the Russian battle tank for trials in May of 2013 in Lima. Peru currently uses 300 AMX-13 French light tanks in addition to 300 obsolete Soviet-made T-55 tanks.

    Though the T-90S trials have proved successful, a contract to supply the tanks to Peru has not yet been signed.

    According to Goreslavsky, the Peruvian leadership is focused on the project with aims of establishing production of the Russian Kamaz trucks, including military versions, which can potentially be used for civilian purposes.

    The modified T-90S is fitted with an increased power multi-fuel 1,130-h.p. diesel engine, giving the vehicle a top speed of over 60 km/h (37 miles per hour) on roads and up to 45 km/h on rough terrain, according to its manufacturer, Uralvagonzavod .

    The 46.5 ton tank's redesigned turret features a modernized 125-mm gun fitted with an autoloader, capable of firing 9M119M missiles, new fire control, navigation and communications systems, and a remotely-controlled mounted 7.62-mm machine gun. It has a crew of three, who are protected by explosive reactive armor and an NBC protection system.

    The Africa Aerospace and Defence 2014 exhibition is being held in the South African capital of Pretoria from September 17 to 21. Rosoboronexport is one of many exhibitors participating in the premier exhibition of air, sea and land technologies.

    One in Five Helicopters Sold in Latin America From Russia - Rostec Exec

    According to Rostec, the Latin American market for Russian helicopters is quite large and the region has great potential for trade with Russia, especially in the manufacturing sector.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — About 20 percent of helicopter market in Latin America is comprised of Russian equipment, Viktor Kladov, the head of International Cooperation Department of Russian state technology company Rostec, said Wednesday.

    "Some 20 percent of helicopter market in the countries south of the Rio Grande river [in Mexico] is comprised of Russian equipment," Kladov told Russia's Kommersant newspaper.

    He noted that the company's share in the civil helicopters market was, by contrast, much smaller, and amounted only to 2 percent.

    "But we are trying to improve the situation – we have launched a large marketing campaign," Kladov said.

    He noted that Rostec was ready to cooperate as closely with its Latin American partners as possible and was open for joint work in different formats.

    Kladov named Brazil, Chile, Peru and Argentina among countries that showed interest in Russian equipment.

    According to Rostec's website, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico and Chile have the greatest potential for foreign trade and cooperation with the Russian company.

    The company says it is in talks with regional partners for joint projects in high-tech development and manufacturing.

    Russia Consolidates Positions on Arms Market in Latin America

    According to Russia’s delegation of the state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, Russia is consolidating its positions on the Latin American arms market.

    LIMA (Sputnik) – Russia is consolidating its positions on the Latin American arms market, despite the strong presence of Western countries in the region, the head of Russia’s delegation of the state arms exporter Rosoboronexport to the weapons exhibition in Lima said.

    “Rosoboronexport is consistently strengthening its positions in Latin American countries. Positions of our competitors are very solid, which makes process difficult. But a tendency toward closer ties in defense is obvious,” Sergei Ladygin said.

    The delegation head explained that Russia and Latin America have common views on key geopolitical issues and mutual interest in expanding cooperation in trade, science and industry.

    “If we speak specifically about certain types of weapons, the most promising segment of the Latin American market is aviation, especially helicopters. This is followed by armament, ground force equipment, and various kinds of air defense systems,” Ladygin said.

    Russia is actively expanding military cooperation with Latin American countries, including arms sales, construction of naval maintenance and resupply facilities, and the occasional use of local airbases to host Russian strategic bombers on global patrol missions.

    Several Latin American countries have also shown potential for cooperating with Russia on high-tech development and manufacturing. Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico and Chile are among the countries that have declared an interest in developing foreign trade and cooperation with Russia, according to the Russian state technology company Rostec.

    Russia Set to Create Military Aftersales Service System in Latin America

    Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport is currently working on the creation of helicopter service centers in Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and Peru.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport is working on the establishment of the full-fledged system of aftersales service in Latin America, the head of Rosoboronexport's delegation to the weapons exhibition in Santiago said.

    "Building up an effective system of aftersales service for Russian military equipment is one of the priorities of Rosoboronexport. It applies not only to helicopters, but to all the military and dual-purpose production. We are actively working in this direction and in the coming years expect to achieve results," Sergei Ladygin told RIA Novosti.

    He added that at the moment Rosoboronexport was working on the creation of helicopter service centers in Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and Peru.

    Last month, Rosoboronexport Director General Anatoly Isaykin said Russia offered Peru the option to purchase a mobile service center to maintain the high operational readiness of its recently received Mi-171Sh military transport helicopters while the construction of a permanent service center in the country is underway.

    Over 400 Russian helicopters are currently being operated in Latin America and the Caribbean. The most popular models are those of the Mi-8/17 series, amounting to 320 units.

    Rosoboronexport will demonstrate advanced Russian military production at FIDAE 2016 trade exhibition to be held on March 29 — April 3 in the Chilean capital Santiago.

    It could be an excellent option for Argentina, which needs to build its air force from scratch, but has no money at the moment for true fighters. It would allow pilots and technicians to acquire experience with handling a sophisticated aircraft (the most advanced plane Argentina ever operated were A-4 modernized in the 90's with APG-66 radar) and prepare them to operate advanced multirole fighters when there are resources available. As its most likely adversary is a NATO member (UK), it would be wise for Argentina not to acquire more military equipment from the West. But I really don't think the current president, as all other presidents before since 1983, cares about defence issues, and if he ever decides to buy new planes it will likely be old modernized like Israeli IAI Kfir or Spanish Mirage F-1.

    Defense Industry of Russia wants to strenghten its position on arms market in Latin America

    Russia has been paying great attention to strengthening its positions on the arms market in Latin American countries, Alexander Denisov, head of the Marketing Activity Department at Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport, said.


    The Russian-made Gorets-M 4x4 at FAMEX 2017 Defense Aerospace Exhibition in Mexico, this vehicle is now in service with the Police of Mexico.

    Denisov is the head of Rosoboronexport’s delegation at the FAMEX 2017 international aerospace exhibition being held at airbase No. 1 in Santa Lucia in Mexico.

    "Rosoboronexport cooperates with almost all Latin American countries. Russia does its best to strengthen its positions on the market, offering not only contracts for ready-made systems, as many other countries do, but also after-sales maintenance, spare parts and repair. Russia is also offering to train Latin American personnel to operate, service, upgrade and even produce hi-tech military hardware under license," Denisov said.

    In addition to Rosoboronexport, Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, Russian Helicopters Group and Irkut Corporation are taking part in the FAMEX 2017 exhibition. The exhibition in Mexico is being attended by more than 500 companies from dozen countries.

    According to Denisov, this has shown that "Russia is gradually strengthening military and technical cooperation" with Latin American countries.

    "Russian-made planes, helicopters, air defense systems and Army equipment remain the focus of attention for our Latin American partners for many years," the Marketing Activity Department’s head said.

    The successful performance of Russia’s air task force in the counterterrorist operation in Syria has aroused interest in many military hardware items.

    Rosoboronexport has displayed more than 160 items of Russian-made military hardware, including the full-scale examples of the Mil Mi-17 (NATO reporting name: Hip) helicopter in service with the Mexican armed forces and the Gorets-M armored vehicle manufactured by Russia’s Special Hardware Research Institute. In early March, the Gorets-M vehicle was delivered to Mexico’s Federal Protection Service for temporary use.

Many of them were used by Russia’s aerospace force in the counter-terrorist operation in Syria to have won acclaim as a high quality reliable weaponry capable of coping with combat tasks in real conditions," the news release said.

    The region’s market is very promising for the combat and training plane Yakovlev-130, multirole frontline fighter MiG-29 and Sukhoi-30MK jet. Potential customers have taken great interest in the military transport helicopter Mi-17SH, helicopter gunship Mi-28NE and combat and transport helicopter Mi-35M, the company said.

    "The Latin American countries’ armed forces are expected to display great interest towards armaments and military technologies for the ground forces, such as the T-90S main battle tank, the BTR-80A and BTR-82A armored personnel carriers, the air defense missile and artillery system Pantsir S-1 and mobile air defense missile Igla-S. Air defense long-range missile systems S-400 Triumph and Antey-2500 may contest their niche on the region’s market, too.

    Russia’s official delegation is led by the deputy director of the federal service for military-technical cooperation Anatoly Punchuk. Rosoboronexport’s chief delegate is Deputy CEO Sergey Ladygin.
