    They need to double that to $100 billion by 2020 , That should be the goal for next 6 years.

    S-400 and Iskander soon to be cleared for export - perhaps 50 bin $ in orders could grow to 60 bin $ Very Happy

    Is Russian industry ramping up sufficiently to meet the new demand or is the backlog getting longer and longer?

    The West will just trick Russia into some U.N missile sanctions like they did with Iran, to anyone who wants the S-300 system, and the same will happen to those who want the new S-400.

    And the Iskander is practical useless as long as the IMF treaty stands, so honestly i am not gonna hold my breath.  Neutral

    Short answer is yes.
    For example, Almaz-Antey's recently announced that its production volume increased in 2013. It will increase further as the new factories come on line.
    http://i-korotchenko.livejournal.com/913037.html

    Of course, it is a slow and painful process that takes time but it is getting better and better every year. Those of us who are following Russian military production do clearly see a positive trend.

    Also note that some arms plants are not being used at full capacity (e.g. Izhmash that makes AK and other small arms). Even successful factories like KAMAZ can take more orders as they still have unutilized excess capacity. Just ask the Iraqi MoD to give more orders  Laughing 

    Also note that the Ukraine situation will negatively affect some production (like helicopters) temporarily. But there is nothing that can't be resolved.

    I would like to see Russian Arms orders (domestic and export) to increase so much that the factories can not cope with the demand. That would be a nice problem to have.

    It is a serious issue and a real tight rope for the Russians.

    Expand capacity too much and you over spend on infrastructure and have idle production lines. Don't expand too much and find you can't meet production needs.

    Now that there is domestic demand things will be much better because with export only production numbers are generally smaller and so margins are tighter... you don't want to make a mistake and find out you are making products at a loss, or miss deadlines and get fined which of course comes out of your profit.

    People wonder why Izhmash was in financial trouble... very simply it is enormous and has the capacity to arm several nations at once.

    And the Iskander is practical useless as long as the IMF treaty stands, so honestly i am not gonna hold my breath.

    Why do you say that?

    The 280km range Iskander is a modern equivalent of Scud except it is accurate enough to actually hit point targets and has two missiles on each truck instead of one.

    Not to mention it's also smaller then the Scud platform, its all well and good Garry.........oops looks like i made a mistake, just looked it up and apparently its max range is between 500-600km, i had thought that it was somewhere between 5000-6000km, my bad, that being said the INF treaty needs to burn and Russia needs to export missiles that can actually hit U.S ships from 2000+km range.

    Good thing is that Almaz-Antey, Uralvagonzavod, Kret, Schwabe and many others are rapidly increasing its civil production too.

    Russian Arms Sales Top $15.5 Billion for 2014 Despite Sanctions' Impact

    Director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation stated that Russian weapons exports for 2014 stood at more than $15.5 billion and current orders for weapons deliveries stand at $48 billion.

    LANGKAWI (Malaysia) (Sputnik) – Russian weapons exports for 2014 stood at more than $15.5 billion and current orders for weapons deliveries stand at $48 billion, the director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said Thursday.

    “We completed the 2014 plan with $15.5 billion, even exceeding [the plan] a bit,” Alexander Fomin said, adding that portfolio orders for weapons to foreign military clients currently stands at $48 billion.

    According to Fomin, western sanctions “obviously had a negative impact on the FSMTC’s work,” but last year’s plan was fulfilled and that “this year’s results would be positive.”

    Russian arms sales

    Another Oxford Analytica piece, this one from mid-December.

    ——

    Russia is the second-largest arms exporter in the world, behind only the United States. In the period 2009-13, Russia accounted for 27% of total world arms sales.

    However, Russian arms sales have been highly dependent on a few major customers, with India, China and Algeria accounting for over 60% of Russian purchases in the last five years. Another 15% of Russian exports went to other Asian countries, primarily Vietnam, Indonesia and former Soviet Union states.

    Russia is particularly hopeful of expanding its sales to Indonesia and Vietnam — which are both looking towards naval expansion, which have to date included systems ranging from aircraft to combat ships to infantry fighting vehicles.

    The main targets of Russian weapon sales are gradually shifting. Sales to China, have been in decline for years as Beijing has pursued a programme of shifting to domestic manufacturing of advanced weaponry.

    India

    India has replaced China as Moscow’s main foreign customer. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reported that between 2009 and 2013 Russia supplied 75% of weapons imported by India. However, serious delays such as the transfer of the modernised aircraft carrier — the Vikramaditya — have dented Russia’s reputation as a reliable partner.

    Therefore, Delhi seeks a diversity of supply from sources including the United States and several European countries. This is evidenced in India’s preference for French Rafale fighters in the multi-billion dollar Medium Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) fighter tender.

    India’s MMRCA tender is for procuring 126 fighters to replace squadrons of MiG-21s. The deal will see France supply a number of aircraft fully built and ready to fly — while the remainder will be built under a technology transfer agreement by Hindustan Aeronautics.

    Moreover, India is looking to be 75% self-reliant in defence production by 2020-25. It will also seek to become a weapons exporter and probably promote partnerships with Russia. The BrahMos Aerospace programme has been a particular noteworthy area of close cooperation between Russia and India with the creation of the BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missile.

    Pakistan

    Pakistan may also provide a new opening for Russia. On November 20, Russia and Pakistan signed a military cooperation agreement, reportedly involving a deal for Moscow to supply 20 Mi-35 transport helicopters to Islamabad.
    Middle East

    Besides Asia, Russia has been actively looking for new customers for its arms in the Middle East. Russia has recently concluded significant contracts with Iraq for helicopters and air defence systems worth 4 billion dollars and Egypt for air defence systems worth 2 billion dollars.

    Latin America

    In Latin America, Russia remains hopeful of selling fighter aircraft to Brazil and Argentina. Russia has sold air defence systems to Brazil and hopes to develop a defence industrial partnership that might parallel its military cooperation with India.

    Competitive sectors

    The sectors in which Russian weapons systems are considered equal or superior to Western equivalents include air defence, fighter aircraft, helicopters, submarines and cruise missiles. These are the sectors in which Russia’s defence industry can compete with the most advanced Western suppliers, with weapons such as the S-300 air defence system, the Su-35 fighter jets and the Kilo class submarine being noteworthy. Russia can also be competitive in sectors such as tanks, armored vehicles, small arms, artillery, and small combat ships. These are sectors where Russian weapons are not as good as Western equivalents, but are generally significantly cheaper. This price difference has allowed them to be competitive in many countries despite lower quality and/or inferior characteristics.
    Ukraine delays

    However, Russian arms sales have largely depended on selling late Soviet designs, with new designs proving more difficult to manufacture. The freeze on military cooperation with Ukraine may lead to further delays as many Russian weapon systems depend on Ukrainian components and the transition to Russian domestic substitutes is expected to take two to three years.

    Putin: Russia faces growing aggression from global arms producers

    "Of course, we have to work in a complex situation,” Putin said during a meeting of the Commission for Military and Technical Cooperation on Monday, according to Tass. “We’re confronted ever more frequently with the attempt of direct counteraction and sometimes these attempts go beyond the framework of competitive struggle and are of an openly aggressive nature. And perhaps political instruments are also used as camouflaged means of competitive struggle.”

    France has signed €15 billion worth of contracts in the last three months, more than we sold as a whole last year.

    Russia wont benefit from trying to screw France just because their leader is a puppet.

    It is not the fault of the french workers that their government is full of cowards.

    Cut your losses... get the best deal you can and just get over it... but don't forget the lesson... domestic production only.

    I am not sure what exact deals did you mean - prospects or inked ones? In every case looks like Russia sold arms last year for over $15,5 bln and Russian arms export portfolio topped $50 bln so cheer up ain´t that bad. Russia has pretty good export policy and I do not think it shall be changed.

    That number didn't even include India. Egypt, Qatar, SKA, Lebanon, Poland have all booked multi-billion tenders with France this year. India and Kuwait are in the finalization of billion+ tenders with them right now and they expect a huge Rafale sale to UAE or Malaysia. What multi-billion contract did we sign this year, i can't remember.

    Of course I might  be not correct but if I sign a contract, today, to sell 24 Su-35 with delivery  in 2020 then

    1) I add now $2 bln to a portfolio but exported nothing yet.
    2) I  get transfer for delivery in 2020 so I add $2 bln to exported results and deduct from portfolio.

    France did not export anything yet but added to portfolio $15bln.  I mean is supposed to add cause neither Indian nor Polish deals are not inked yet.

    Russia portfolio is over $50bln as Sputnik claims and last year export (ie shipments of goodies and transfers received) was on level of $15,5bln.

    Contracts close to sign by Russia? lately Egypt
    46 MiG-35 ~$2bln
    pending $1bln + S-300

    Still pending deal with iraq for $4,2bln-  

    I did not dig  anything though about deals with India wrt helos and Ils of China. Remember there is still June.


    Summing up - French are waning around about export but they sing just contrast to portfolio... comparing 15 France to 50+ Russian still looks rather dwarfey. But France 24 is lying on purpose -you know Russians are drunkards and loosers because IIWW was won by French imperial army Smile
