Russia will present more than 250 new and modernized weapons at an international arms show in South Africa, arms exporter Rosoboronexport said Monday. Africa Aerospace & Defence 2006, the largest aerospace, defense, and security exhibition on the continent, will be held at Ysterplaat air force base near Cape Town on September 20-24. "Russia defense companies will present more than 250 types of new and modernized weapons in the form of mock-up models, posters, electronic presentations, videos and advertising materials," a Rosoboronexport spokesman said. The main segment of the Russian exposition will feature all major models of modern aircraft and helicopters, including Su-27SK Flanker and Su-30MK air superiority fighters, the Su-32 two-seat fighter-bomber, Su-35 Flanker-E multi-role fighter, Su-39 attack aircraft equipped with Kopye radar, Yak-130 trainers, as well as export models of the Mi-17 Hip transport helicopter and Mi-35 Hind attack/transport helicopter. A significant part of the Russian stand will be dedicated to air defense weapons. The arms exporter said Russia exported several hundred air defense missile systems, thousands of air defense gun systems, portable air defense systems and about 1,000 air defense radars to African countries. "All these weapons need to be modernized and Rosoboronexport is ready to help our African clients in accomplishing this," the spokesman said. Foreign experts will also receive detailed information about advanced air defense systems, including the Buk M1 with modernized 9M317 missile, S-125-2 Pechora, Strela-10M (SA-13 Gopher), and Zu-23M1 short-range air defense missile/gun system, the agency said.
