Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport, a subsidiary of state corporation Rostec, has established a counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (C-UAV) portfolio, company director general Alexander Mikheev told journalists on 17 September.

He said the cluster would be presented at the Dubai airshow in November where “we will conduct negotiations with Arab partners on the newest Russian-made C-UAV systems, combining these systems into a single cluster”.

Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov added that the new C-UAV cluster comprised of both soft- and hard-kill systems. “[The portfolio includes] air defence assets, namely Pantsir-family self-propelled anti-aircraft gun-missile systems, Sosna surface-to-air missile systems, Igla and Verba man-portable air defence systems, and a number of C-UAV systems, including Sapsan-Bekas, Ataka-DBS, Solaris-N, Pishchal-PRO, and Taran-PRO,” Chemezov said.
