Rosoboronexport exhibited 160 different products, including many different aircraft, at the MAKS 2019 airshow held at Zhukovsky airport near Moscow from August 27 to September 1. One of the most prominent of the Rosoboronexport products on display was the Su-57E, which was being exhibited for the first time at the fair. Attending the opening ceremony of the event was President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who made a speech before touring the stands, where he received information from the authorities about the Su-57E.

The Su-57E, which Rosoboronexport introduced as a 5th generation fighter, has been developed to fulfil many different roles. Offering both air and ground attack capabilities, the Su-57E improves upon 4th generation fighter aircraft in terms of its low signature and supercruise capabilities.

Another product unveiled by Rosoboronexport at the event was the Il-112VE light military transport aircraft, while its MiG-35, Su-35S, Su-34, Su-30SME, Yak-130 and Yak-152 airplanes, and Mi-35M, Mi-28NE, Ka-52 and Ka-31 helicopters were also on display.

Since its establishment in 2000, Rosoboronexport – a state-owned company that is the sole body authorized to export defence and aerospace products – has to date delivered over 800 fighter jets and assembly kits for production under license abroad. The number of military and civilian helicopters delivered to date, on the other hand, has exceeded 1,000, and when counted together with airborne ammunition, the total value of deliveries has topped $40 billion. The company has also to date delivered air defence systems valued at over $25 billion.
