Russia remains a leader amongst global exporters of naval hardware, with on-going orders exceeding $5 billion, head of the Rosoboronexport delegation to International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS) 2015, Deputy General Director Igor Sevastyanov said.
“Currently, Rosoboronexport's book of orders for Russian naval hardware comprises of contracts with foreign partners to a total sum exceeding $5 billion,” a report of the company press service seen by Interfax-AVN quoted Sevastyanov as saying.
Sevastyanov said the share of naval products in gross Rosoboronexport exports stood at approximately 15 percent in recent years, which generally complied with global trends on the arms market.
The company deputy head said the present-day capacities of the Russian defense sector enabled Rosoboronexport to comprehensively implement even the most technologically complicated and daring projects in any place of the globe.
“Besides, Russia not only supplies naval end-products but also shares specific military technologies with partners for starting joint production of ships and naval systems," Sevastyanov added.
