World Defense Show 2022

The impressive success of the first global exhibition in Riyadh

Under the patronage of Custodian of the two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the first edition of the World Defense Show (WDS) was held in Saudi Arabias capital - Riyadh on the beginning of March. First edition of WDS presented more than 600 exhibitors from over 40 countries and nearly 30,000 visitors attending throughout the four-day show. One of the largest participants of the exhibition was Russian defense enterprises. The collective exposition of Russian defense solutions was organized by Rosoboronexport.

World Defense Show 2022 in the Kingdome of Saudi Arabia attracted global defence companies and associated industries, and Rosoboronexport as part of Rostec corporation is no exception. The show was a fully integrated and future-focused event which provided an ample opportunity to showcase the latest technological developments from all over the world. Russia was displayed at the WDS-2022 the whole range of modern assets and comprehensive defense solutions.

World Defense Show (WDS-2022) was organized by the General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI), SAMI, the strategic partner of the event and Saudi Arabias national champion for the defense industries sector, has set its sights on accelerating its transformation to become one of the top 25 defense and security companies in the world by 2030. Apart from showcasing its innovative and comprehensive defense products and systems, leaders of the global military industries create more employment opportunities, and boost its exports through its participation in WDS 2022.

Russia presented very high-performance defense products in Riyadh. Among Russian's masterpieces was the most modern MI-28NE upgrade combat helicopter, designed to engage a wide list of targets round the clock in rough weather. It features powerful unguided and guided weapon systems with enhanced air-to-air capabilities, better flight performance and maneuverability, modern avionics, efficient protection against MANPADS with multispectral homing heads due to self-defense system. MI-28NE outperforms foreign competitors is max combat payload, flight speed, service ceiling and weight of armour.

let's continue the review. Orion-E reconnaissance and strike system with UAVs is designed for aerial reconnaissance and target engagement. It has 3 external racks where 200 kilograms of combat load can be suspended including guided missiles, guided and conventional air-bombs.

The system can accomplish tasks day and night in partially adverse weather conditions, any geographic and climatic zone while staying airborne for up to 30 hours. The deployment time is not more than 4 hours and one ground station can control up to 4 UAVs simultaneously.

Talking about integrated defense solutions Rosoboronexport presented the concept of layered Missile Defence System which consists of Reconnaissance, C2 and Fire subsystems such as: long range Air-Defence Missile Systems S-400 capable of intercepting theatre/short and mid-range ballistic missiles in the range of 60 kilometers at an altitude of up to 25 kilometers, and other aerial targets within 380 km range at an altitude of up to 30 kilometers, and Abakan highly jamming immune and maneuverable ADMS with high-firepower designed to intercept active and perspective non-strategic ballistic missiles in the range of 45 kilometers and at an altitude of up to 25 kilometers; medium range Air-Defence Missile Systems Vityaz and Viking with 120 km and 65 km engagement range respectively and up to 25 kilometers in altitude. Both systems can also intercept theatre ballistic missiles within 25 kilometers; and direct cover Pantsir-S1M ADGMSs.

The T-90MS MBT is the major player on the battlefield with mighty armament and strong protection. Cutting-edge solutions in Armoured Vehicles' design merged with combat experience for your undisputed dominance. The tank has modern AFCS, powerful and robust engine with reliable transmission. The 125mm cannon engages targets at long distances with high accuracy and keeps the MBT out of the enemy anti-tank weapons' engagement zone. Multidimensional protection and life-support systems ensure high survivability of the tank and crew on the battlefield.

With constant development of unmanned aerial technologies global market shows the growing demand for counter-UAV assets and Rostec corporation follows the trend. So let's have a look at the most perspective ones:

RLK-MTSE a system for detecting and countering UAVs which can be used for protection of critical infrastructure (military/transport/administrative/industrial and sports facilities). The System suppresses UAV's data and C2 channels at distances not less than 4 kilometers and satellite navigation not less than 2 kilometers.

Rubezh-Avtomatika portable radio surveillance and jamming system against small-sized UAVs is an unbreachable barrier for single drones and swarms of them attacking from different heights and directions within the area of 3 km. The system creates a protective dome over designated facilities.

Pischal electromagnetic gun is one of the most lightweight anti-drone guns available on the market, which provides jamming for UAV's C2 channels within 2 km.

Russian firearms are known all over the world and this year Rosoboronexport displayed in Riyadh modern AK-19 and AK-308 Kalashnikov Assault Rifles, PPK-20 9x19mm submachine gun, PLK 9mm handgun and DXL-4M long-rang multicaliber sniper rifle at our venue along with other battle-proven assets. All of them are made according to the international trends with light and robust materials, Picatinny rails and up-to-date design features. Their reliability is tested under harshest weather conditions in various climatic zones for your efficiency in combat and training.

Relations between Russia and Saudi Arabia have a long history. The Soviet Union was the first country to recognize an independent Saudi state. The USSR established diplomatic relations with it on February 19, 1926 by exchanging notes. In 1932 Prince Faisal, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the KSA, made an official visit to the USSR.

The most significant recent bilateral development took place in October 2019, when Riyadh hosted talks between President of Russia Vladimir Putin and King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia. As Kremlin reported, the talks focused, among other things, on coordinating measures to stabilise oil prices, as well as the situation in Syria and the Persian Gulf region, and the Palestinian-Israeli settlement. In addition, the leaders discussed building up their multi-dimensional cooperation in various areas, such as energy, agriculture, industry and military-technical cooperation, as well as cultural and humanitarian exchanges.

"Following the visit, a package of bilateral documents was signed, including both interagency and commercial agreements. The sides signed the Charter of Cooperation of Oil Producing Countries and the programme for high level Russian-Saudi strategic cooperation of the Joint Intergovernmental Commission on Trade, Economic, Scientific and Technological Cooperation. Other documents concern cooperation in manned cosmonautics and the GLONASS global navigation satellite system, energy, culture, healthcare, mass communications, tourism, mutual visa facilitation agreements, encouragement and protection of capital investment and mutual expansion of agricultural and food exports. A number of documents regulate specific issues of joint investment and joint projects", - reported Kremlin.

Later, Vladimir Putin held talks with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud of Saudi Arabia. The sides also exchanged gifts.

"Bilateral relations were established over 90 years ago in 1926, the dawn of the state of Saudi Arabia. The Soviet Union was the first foreign country to recognize the young Kingdom of Hejaz and Nejd led by your father. Your Majesty, we appreciate your personal contribution to promoting multifaceted Russia-Saudi Arabia cooperation. Your first ever visit to Russia in October 2017 was quite effective. The agreements reached back then are being successfully implemented", - said President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

According to Russian President, Russian-Saudi coordination is an indispensable element for ensuring security in the Middle East and North Africa.

"I am convinced that without your country, it is hardly possible to achieve a just and long-term settlement of any problem in this region", - said Vladimir Putin.

Founded by Saudi Arabias General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI), World Defense Show set to be held every two years accelerated the future of the industry by showcasing the latest technological developments from around the globe, demonstrating defense interoperability across all major domains air, land, sea, space and security systems.
