The Rosoboronexport book of orders exceeds $40 billion, including $18 billion orders for military aircraft, Rosoboronexport General Director Anatoly Isaikin told reporters on August 25.
"The Rosoboronexport book of orders tops $40 billion, and the 2015 plan is being fulfilled on schedule. We have absolutely no doubts that it will be met," Isaikin said at the MAKS 2015 international aerospace show.
He added that the Rosoboronexport book of orders for Russian aircraft "exceeded $18 billion."
Rosoboronexport is energetically prompting brand new multirole fighters Sukhoi Su-35 and Mikoyan MiG-29M/M2, military transport aircraft Ilyushin Il-76MD-91A and combat trainers Yakovlev Yak-130, Isaikin said.
Besides, foreign customers are offered combat helicopters Mil Mi-28NE and Kamov Ka-52, light multirole helicopters Kamov Ka-226T and heavy-lift transport helicopters Mil Mi-26T2.
"The high demand for military transport helicopters Mil Mi-17, combat transport helicopters Mil Mi-35M and fine modifications of the Sukhoi Su-27/30 family will stay in the foreseeable future," Isaikin said.
Rosoboronexport "is determined to preserve Russia's leading positions on the global market of military aircraft," he said.
"We have everything we need to do so," he said.
