MOSCOW  -   A large assortment of Russia’s advanced anti-terror weapons will be on display at the IDEAS 2018 defence industry show in Pakistan this week, Rosoboronexport, the state arms exporter, said Monday.

“Russian arms makers are designing and mass-producing unique equipment that helps locate and neutralise both small extremist forces and highly-organised large terror groups. A majority of these weapons have been used successfully in battle and praised highly for their performance in Syria,” the agency said in a press release.

The 10th International Defence Exhibition and Seminar kicks off Tuesday at Karachi Expo Centre. The four-day biennial event is billed as the “most strategically important” show in the region, bringing together defence industry players from around the world.

The Russian booth will showcase weaponry made by three state arms makers. The Rosoboronexport stand will have over 200 items on display, ranging from an array of Kalashnikov rifles to surveillance drones.

The corporation expects foreign buyers to show interest in its Kornet-EM and Metis-M1 anti-tank guided missile systems, Kalashnikov’s Pecheneg machine guns, Shmel-M and Varna flamethrowers, and the Bur compact grenade launcher. Partner states have already shown interest in the BTR-80A and BTR-82A armored personnel carriers, the BMP-3M infantry fighting vehicle, the Tiger high-mobility military vehicle, the Mi35M attack and transport helicopter, as well as Orlan-10E and Takhion spy drones, and the small Repellent drone hunter.
