"Rosoboronexport will present specifications of the Igla-S MANPAD, the Tor-M2KM air defense launcher mounted on the Indian-made Tata chassis and Pantsir-S1 and Tunguska-M1 missile and artillery systems at the Bangalore show," he said.

"These systems are participating in five tenders of the Indian Defense Ministry and their chances for victory are high," the source noted.

In the opinion of Rosoboronexport experts, the company's program of modernization of the S-125 air defense systems possessed by the Indian army to the Pechora-2M level will also catch the attention of specialists.

"We are expecting this exhibition to promote Russian air defense systems which fully meet the needs of Indian servicemen and offer reliable protection from airborne threats," head of the Rosoboronexport delegation to the show Sergei Goreslavsky said.

The Aero India 2015 organizing committee reported the participation of almost 400 companies from 31 countries.

According to the Federal Service for Military-Technological Cooperation (FSMTC), "the Russian pavilion will incorporate stands of 30 Russian organizations and present information regarding 280 types of military products."
