    Russia - Brazil military contracts

    Russia delivers first 3 helicopter gunships to Brazil

    RIA Novosti

    25/03/201020:23

    SANTIAGO (Chile), March 25 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has delivered the first batch of Mi-35M Hind E attack helicopters to Brazil, a Russian state arms exporter said on Thursday.

    Rosoboronexport spokesman Sergei Svechnikov said a total of 12 helicopters are to be delivered under a 2008 contract, worth $150 million.

    The Mi-35M is an export version of the Mi-24 Hind that was used extensively in Afghanistan. The Mi-24/35 is unique among dedicated attack helicopters insofar as it can carry a load of troops, in addition to performing its offensive role.

    The Sao Paulo-based newspaper Valor Economico previously reported that the Mi-35s would be used in the Amazon region, in conjunction with Brazil's Embraer land and ground surveillance jets.

    The Amazon region borders both Venezuela and Colombia, and is a prime location for trans-national narco-terrorists and drug traffickers.

    Russia-Brazil Pantsir-S1 Air Defense systems deal

    Russia, Brazil hold talks on delivery of air defense systems

    RIA Novosti

    16:1214/05/2010 MOSCOW, May 14 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Brazil are negotiating a deal for the delivery of unspecified air defense systems to the Latin American country, a Russian government official said on Friday.

    "We are considering any system in general terms," said Mikhail Dmitriyev, head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.

    "We don't mind what they agree to buy. It could be Tor systems," he added.

    The Tor-M1, developed by the Russian company Almaz-Antei, is a low-to-medium-altitude, short-range surface-to-air missile system designed to intercept aircraft, cruise missiles, precision-guided munitions and unpiloted aerial vehicles.

    The talks are being held in the framework of the Russian-Brazilian joint trade commission.

    Russia recently delivered three out of 12 Mi-35M Hind E attack helicopters to Brazil under a 2008 contract, worth $150 million.

    Brazil wants to buy Russian Anti-Aircraft Weaponry

    Post  dino00 on Sun Feb 03, 2013 1:57 pm

    MOSCOW, February 3 (RIA Novosti) – Brazil’s Defense Ministry intends to discuss purchasing air defense systems from Russia during talks with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev later this month, the ministry said on Sunday.
    "We are interested in acquiring three batteries of Pantsir-S1 missiles and two batteries of Igla missiles," General Jose Carlos De Nardi, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Brazilian Armed Forces, said in a statement.
    The possible purchase of Russian anti-aircraft weaponry will be discussed during Medvedev’s visit to Brazil scheduled for the end of February, De Nardi said.
    An agreement, if signed, would envisage the construction of a factory in Brazil and the transfer of technologies, he said.
    The Pantsir-S, produced by Russia's KBP, is a gun-missile system combining a wheeled vehicle mounting a fire-control radar and electro-optical sensor, two 30-mm cannons and up to 12 57E6 radio-command guided short-range missiles, and is designed to take on a variety of targets flying at low altitudes.
    The Pantsir can engage targets up to 20 km (12 miles) by missiles and 4 km (2.5 miles) using cannons, KBP claims.
    The export version of the system, Pantsir-S1, has been sold to the United Arab Emirates, Syria and Algeria.
    The Igla is a Russian man-portable infrared homing surface-to-air missile.

    I would like to see more purchases in the future from South-American countries like Brazil & Argentina.
    Brazil has already taken delivery of Mi-35s and now they are planning to order air defence systems.
    Argentina started with a couple of Mi-17 helicopters.
    Hopefully these 2 countries will start modernizing their armed forces (just like Venezuela is doing) and with Russian suppliers.

    I doubt Brazil wants to make them for themselves alone... I suspect they are interested in making them for their neighours near and far, which is good for Russia because that means Brazil will be looking for customers for the systems too and some countries in the region might prefer to buy a system that can be serviced and supported locally.

    Perhaps this is a first step towards PAK-FA Very Happy

    21.02.13 RUSSIA AND BRAZIL TO DEVELOP MILITARY-TECHNICAL COOPERATION IN THE FIELD OF DEFENSE
    February 21 2013.

    ITAR-TASS , February 20. Russia and Brazil are going to develop military-technical cooperation in the field of defense. Declaration of Intent between the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation and the Ministry of Defence of the Federal Republic of Brazil on Cooperation in the field of defense was signed on the basis of the VI session of the Russian-Brazilian high-level commission on cooperation. Agreement was signed by the director of PS MTC Alexander Fomin and Brazilian Defense Minister Jose Nardi.

    Earlier, a source in the Russian delegation confirmed that the Brazilian side is very interested in the Russian missile defense systems. "A large number of documents were signed when / Dilma / Rousseff at the invitation of Putin arrived in December," - he recalled. Commenting on the fact that Brazil has plans to purchase from Russia of two batteries of portable anti-aircraft missile system "Igla" and three batteries of air defense systems, "shell-C1," Itar-Tass interlocutor noted that Brazil is very interested in this technique. "As for the" Eagle, "in principle, we have signed a protocol with them on commercial lines, which provides for the licensed production of" Eagle "- he explained. - But negotiations continue. Equally, they do show an interest to acquire" shell-C1 " under negotiation. " Member of the delegation noted that in the case of the air defense system it is only ready to buy weapons. But the process of buying the "Eagle" and the establishment of licensed production in Brazil is parallel.

    I recall reading that Su-35BM fall out of the Brasil fighter competition because Brasil wanted Russia to select its Embrarer regional

    planes which is of course not an option in light of the SSJ/MS-21. But if thats the way Brasil negotiates with everyone than its

    hard nut to crack. But than again just yesterday RIA news published this article

    Ilyushin Signs $2.6 Bln Deal for 32 Bombardier Airliners

    so I wonder, could they done it with Embrarer and sell Su-35BM to Brasil ?!?

    ooops another negative vote ...looks like someones maaad.lol1 But to no avail completely unimportant to the decision of Brazil. Maybe we should send them some of ours more loudmouth members here ,to convince them they are wrong...Razz
    Anyway another spinoff of the pantcir is in development this time a "lite" version with smaller missiles and less ammo rounds, for amphibious troops.

    You fail here. Gepards were ordered in Brazil before they ordered Pantsir and first Gepards will be delivered in comming weeks, if they are not already delivered.

    What does Brazil buying used Geopard have to do with Pantsir being overpriced?

    Logic escapes this guy Sad.

    Or maybe he does not understand the meaning of the word overpriced.

    THis sad crusade against the Pantsir is very entertaining however.

    Deal on Pantsir-S1 missile systems sale to Brazil to be signed by June end - Rosoboronexport

    RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil. April 12 (Interfax-AVN) - The Russian state arms trader Rosoboronexport hopes to start negotiations with Brazil on exports of Pantsir-S1 air defense missile and gun systems in the near future, Sergei Ladygin, head of Rosoboronexport's delegation to the LAAD 2013 Defense and Security International Exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, told journalists.

    "Hopefully, we will be able to tell the press together with the Brazilian side in the first half of the year that a contract has been concluded," Ladygin said.

    Several presentations of the Pantsir-S1 system have been conducted during the exhibition for potential customers, including representatives of the Brazilian interdepartmental commission, which is laying the ground for these talks, he said.

    "They assured us that all preparations can be completed within a month. I do not think that the talks will see any delays," he said.

    By offering Pantsir-S1 systems to Brazil, Russia reaffirms its readiness for broad cooperation in technologies and production, including transfers of technologies and the possibility of manufacturing components for these systems in Brazil under a license, he said.

    Unofficial reports say that Russia could deliver up to four Pantsir-S1 squadrons to Brazil. One squadron includes from three to six Pantsir-S1 systems. The price of the deal could stand at several hundred million U.S. dollars.

    Brazil is one of the few major countries that Russia hasn't co-operated on the creation of a weapon or military system with.

    With India we have the FGFA, Brahmos, Vikramaditya aircraft carrier, Talwar-class frigate & Il-214 MTA
    With China there is the WZ-10 and a new super-heavy helicopter, supplies of engines and technical assistance with their other indigenous programs
    With France the Euromil Mi-38, APC with BMP-3 turret for export, talks on a JV for cable-laying and supply-vessels
    With Italy the S-1000 sub, Yak-130/M-346, Be-112, a new maritime patrol aircraft on the basis of the Il-38 and/or Be-200
    With Israel there are talks on joint-development of a UAV system, possibly a helicopter UAV system
    With South Korea the KP-SAM MANPAD system & KM-SAM
    With Vietnam there are talks over a joint-venture for a modified Uran missile (much like how the Brahmos is based on the Yakhont)
    With the Ukraine we have the An-70 & An-140, restart of An-124 production, Zaporozhie sub renovation and plenty more if we consider the reliance on Ukrainian defense industry manufacturers for much of Russia's own military hardware production
    With Belarus it's a similar story to that of the Ukraine; Belarussian MAZ chassis & other Belarussian parts are used for many Russian weapon systems.
    With Jordan the RPG-32
    Even with the UAE there is a new project to build an attack UAV on the basis of the Berkut VL light helicopter

    Brazil is the biggest potential new partner I'd imagine, what with the setting up of Mi-171 production in Brazil and now the interest in the Pantsir-S1; it sounds like a sign of things to come (fingers crossed for LMFS co-operation I love you)

    I do think however that there is also potential for initiating co-operation on several systems with Turkey, Venezuela, Spain, Germany, Japan, South Africa, Mexico, Serbia & Greece (when its economy improves).. even the US, UK, Sweden and Poland if they ever stop with their phobias towards Russia.
