Moscow, Nov 12 (IANS/RIA Novosti): Russia will showcase its most advanced combat aircraft and air defence systems at a major airshow in Dubai that starts Sunday, state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport said.

The Dubai Airshow will be held Nov 13-17 in the United Arab Emirates. The Airport Expo complex in Dubai is expected to host about 1,000 exhibitors from 50 countries, which will showcase their products to over 55,000 guests and visitors.

Visitors at the show "will be presented advanced products of the Russian aerospace industry, such as the Su-35 and MiG-29M/MiG-29M2 multifunctional fighters, Yak-130 combat trainer, and Be-200 amphibious aircraft," Rosoboronexport said in a statement Friday.

The Russian exhibit will also promote a variety of military helicopters, such as the famed Mi-171 transport helicopters, Ka-52 and Mi-28NE attack helicopters and the Mi-26T - the world's heaviest-lift helicopter.

Air defence equipment will be represented by the S-300VM, Tor-M2E and Buk-M2E air defence missile systems, Tunguska-M1 and Pantsir-S1 air defence gun/missile systems, Igla-S man-portable air defence system, radars, electronic warfare equipment, command, control and communication systems.

Russia has firmly established itself as the world's second largest arms exporter after the US. Combat aircraft account for almost half of all foreign sales by Rosoboronexport.

"Russian combat systems have earned high respect and are in great demand among customers in North Africa and the Middle East," Rosoboronexport said.
