Russia will exhibit a wide range of new and modernized weapons at an international arms show in Malaysia, Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport said Monday. The DSA-2006 exhibition will ran April 24 until April 27 in the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

"Experts can receive exhaustive information on more than 20 types of new and modernized weapons for land forces alone," a Rosoboronexport spokesman said.

The main exhibits include the T-90C and T-72M1 main battle tanks, BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, BTR-80 and BTR-90 armored personnel carriers, 152-mm and 155-mm Msta-S self-propelled howitzers, 300-mm Smerch multiple-launch rocket system (MLRS), Buk-M1-2 medium range air defense missile systems, and Igla portable air defense systems.

The aviation segment of the Russian exposition will feature all major models of Mi and Ka helicopters, including the Mi-17, Mi-26, Mi-35M, Ka-31 and Ka-226.

Russia will also exhibit small and medium displacement surface ships that are in great demand in Southeast Asia, including the Mirage and Mangust patrol speedboats, Molnya missile boat, Amur-950 diesel submarine and Piranha compact submarines.

A significant part of the Russian stand will be dedicated to weapons and ammunition for special task forces. The exhibit will feature modernized Kalashnikov automatic rifles of 5.56 and 7.62 calibers, light anti-tank grenade launchers, submachine guns, sniper rifles, underwater guns, special cartridges, optical sights and grenades.

"The company considers Russia's participation in DSA-2006 to be a significant stage in the further promotion of Russian arms on rapidly developing Southeast Asian markets," the Rosoboronexport spokesman said.

Officials from the Russian delegation said the exhibition, which will be attended by more than 600 firms from more than 45 countries, would lay the groundwork for contracts on supplies of arms and military hardware to the region and their integration into national and collective security systems.
