Both the latest and most in-demand pieces of armament will be showcased at Saudi Arabia’s first-ever World Defense Show 2022, which will be held from March 6-9, 2022 in Riyadh.

Russia’s single exhibit, organized by Rosoboronexport at the World Defense Show 2022, comprises products from more than 20 enterprises affiliated with the country’s largest manufacturing holding companies.

At its stand, Rosoboronexport will showcase pieces of armament for all services of armed forces.

In addition, the models of the Typhoon-K and Typhoon-VDV mine-protected wheeled armored vehicles, the Kupol (Dome) electronic warfare system for countering small-sized drones will be demonstrated at the Rosoboronexport stand.

As part of the exhibition’s business program, Rosoboronexport has scheduled to hold numerous talks with representatives of the military and political leadership and the business community of Saudi Arabia, as well as the Middle East and North Africa countries.
