    The final number of Su30 has been reached with the last contract, while the Su34 has also been a part of the AAF's modernisation program for a long time. Our Su30 are mostly used for Air Defence these days, that's why they want a dedicated bomber to replace the Su24.

    Middle Eastern Countries Interested in Russian Armed Vehicles, Aircraft

    Middle Eastern states are showing increased interest in Russian military hardware, the deputy head of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said Thursday.

    KUWAIT CITY (Sputnik) — Many Middle Eastern countries have expressed increased interest in Russian military hardware, including armored vehicles and aircraft, at the Gulf Defence & Aerospace exhibition in Kuwait, the deputy head of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said Thursday.

    "At Gulf Defence & Aerospace, we are representing Russia's military-industrial complex in all segments of the arms market. Significant interest is being expressed in Russian wheeled and tracked armored vehicles, combat helicopters and planes, military transport aircraft and combat training aircraft, different classes of air defense systems," Sergey Goreslavsky, who heads the joint delegation of Rosoboronexport and Russia's state hi-tech corporation Rostec at the event, said.

    The arms exporter is offering its "Complex Defense Systems" package around the world, the deputy director added. The package includes a wide range of products for urban security, counter-terrorism, facility protection, border protection and natural disaster cleanups, he explained.

    In November, the Dubai Airshow took place in the United Arab Emirates, where customers from the region showed interest in Russian air defense systems and aerial military technology, according to a Russian delegate at the event.

    Egypt, Iraq and Syria have been Russia's traditional customers in the Middle East, while Saudi Arabia has begun to show interest in Russian defense systems more recently.

    Russia Fulfills Infantry Fighting Vehicle Export Deal With Kuwait

    Russia has effectively fulfilled its side of the deal to supply Kuwait with infantry fighting vehicles, the deputy head of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said Thursday.

    "This year, we will complete the fulfillment of the contract to supply BMP-3M and BMP-3K infantry fighting vehicles to Kuwait. The last batch of the vehicles arrived in Kuwait in early November, which is currently undergoing the receipt process," Sergey Goreslavsky told RIA Novosti.

    Without specifying the number of vehicles delivered to Kuwait under the deal, Goreslavsky emphasized that they had performed well in high temperatures, which in the Middle East can reach 50 degrees Celsius during the hottest months.

    Russia Arms Exports Must Expand Gains Across Middle East

    Russia must sustain the momentum it has gained in broadening its military-technical cooperation across the Middle East, Sergey Goreslavsky, the deputy head of Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, said at Gulf Defence & Aerospace expo in Kuwait City on Thursday.

    "Within the last few years, Russia has significantly expanded its military-technical cooperation with Middle Eastern countries. Our goal is to maintain the pace we have accomplished, and that is why we decided to take part in Gulf Defense & Aerospace," Goreslavsky, who heads the joint delegation of Rosoboronexport and Russia's state hi-tech corporation Rostec to the exhibition, told RIA Novosti.

    The Gulf Defense & Aerospace-2015 Exhibition and Conference, taking place between December 8-10, has great potential in terms of promoting Russian arms exports in the Middle East, Goreslavsky added.

    In November, many customers from the region showed interest in Russian air defense systems and aerial military technology at the Dubai Airshow in the United Arab Emirates, according to a Russian delegate at the event.

    Various Russian military equipment has recently seen combat action in the Middle Eastern region, including bomber aircraft, multirole planes and rocket launcher systems.

    With the Saudi attacks someone has handed another sales opportunity to Russia on a plate.


    Reuters, Moscow Tuesday, 17 September 2019
    Text size A A A

    Russia will hold talks with its Middle East partners on selling them new anti-drone weapons systems, Interfax news agency cited Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport saying on Tuesday.

    The arms exporter would discuss sales of the new anti-drone weapons during the Dubai Airshow in late November, Rosoboronexport director Alexander Mikheev said.

    The comments follow a drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities on Saturday which knocked out more than 5 percent of global oil supply.

    I think Daily Sabah is a Turkey newspaper, can't find the original source, don't know if credible, would be good for Suckoi

    Would make sense. Turkey actually has a pretty solid defence manufacturing industry that produce good quality products... I would think cooperation with Russia would be good for both sides.

    There are likely a few components of the Su-35 that Turkey could make themselves instead of buying them from Russia, and even if they are gold plated that wont increase the price to anything like the cost of a single F-35, and operational costs will also be a fraction of the cost of F-35s operational costs, so buying and owning Su-35s might interest a few customers these days... the ones not blinded by bribes and ideology of course.

    Iraq's AF might substitute its US F-16 with Russian fighters, writes media

    In the near future, Iraqi AF could substitute American F-16IQ Fighting Falcons with more advanced Russian combat planes.

    According to a Military Watch portal article, Irak has 34 F-16 fighters of American manufacture that were provided between 2014 and 2017. Maintenance of these fighters very much depends on the US technical support that, due to changes in the political sphere within short notice should be retired from Irak. This is one of the reasons why Iraqi authorities are planning the purchase of modern aircraft.

    Last August, Iraqi officials declared the need for Russia's fifth-generation Su-57s. However, the country does not have the capacity for their purchase due to them being expensive.

    On the other hand, the portal writes, MiG-29 or MiG-35 could help the Iraqi AF to obtain skills and experience necessary to operate more advanced aircraft such as Su-57s or Su-30SM2s.

    I would say a purchase of MiG-29Ms would be a very good start... a modern aircraft that is affordable and can carry most Russia air carried ordinance.

    Not sure how many they are planning on buying but a mix of MiG-29Ms and MiG-35s... say 100 MiG-29Ms and perhaps 20 of the more expensive MiG-35s and they could operate them for a few years.

    They are both essentially the same aircraft with the 35 being equipped to a higher standard in terms of quality of internal equipment.

    After a set period... perhaps 5 years they can determine what features of the MiG-35 are worth the extra money and which are not, and the useful parts can be used to upgrade the MiG-29Ms.

    While it is a medium sized aircraft its low operating costs should allow it to perform the role of a light fighter but with better flight range and weapon capacity with space for improvement and upgrade over time without being excessively expensive.
