Rosoboronexport looks to future soldier

6th June 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rosoboronexport is looking to tap into demand for future soldier systems across the international market, with a focus on advanced individual combat systems and small arms.

The company will work to replace foreign-made components, particularly optical sights and night vision devices, with Russian equivalents to boost capabilities and drive down price tags.

An individual combat system known as the ‘Soldier of the Future’ is also set for the international market once export formalities are concluded.

Director general Alexander Mikheev of Rosoboronexport, said: ‘We are facing growing demand for small arms, close combat systems, sights and ammunition in the world. In the past three years, Rosoboronexport's backlog of these products has grown more than five times.

‘To improve chances and competitiveness of the weapons that we deliver, Russian enterprises will develop new systems and mount an effort of upgrading existing models through the use of advanced materials and technologies.’
