This summer during the 2023 International Maritime Defence Show (IMDS), Rosoboronexport JSC (part of the Rostec State Corporation) exhibited and presented to international partners the latest Russian naval equipment and coastal zone surveillance and defence systems. The show was held in June 21 in Kronstadt (St. Petersburg), Russia.

“For years, the maritime show has successfully contributed to the strengthening of friendly ties and fostered open, mutually beneficial sharing of experiences between representatives of leading shipbuilding industry enterprises and consumers of their products,” said Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport. “Rosoboronexport is a traditional exhibitor and sponsor of the show, and every time, with great pride for the Russian industry, we introduce to our international partners products of the domestic shipbuilding sector, coastal defence systems and naval weapons. In 2023, Rosoboronexport and Russian enterprises participating in the naval show demonstrated to visitors surface ships and submarines in service with the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Border Service of the FSB of the Russian Federation, the Zaslon and Mineral-ME shipborne radar systems and the Rubezh-ME coastal defence missile system,” he added.

Rosoboronexport’s exhibit at IMDS reflected the basic needs of today’s market, showing representatives of naval forces from Russia-friendly nations the country’s advanced level of technological and scientific progress. Naval equipment and weapons were among the most sophisticated types of military equipment, and the capability of industrial enterprises to produce them on a full-cycle basis was an important indicator of a country’s development.

In 2023, the International Maritime Defence Show was held for the first time in Kronstadt, a city of Russia’s military glory, where it became possible to combine in a convenient way a display of ships and submarines on the pier and pavilions that accommodate exhibition space and rooms for negotiations. The conditions provided at the show corresponded to the high status of the foreign delegations, with the necessary infrastructure built according to all modern requirements.

Scale models of the Projects 677E and 636 submarines, the Project 22800E Karakurt-E-class guided-missile corvette, the Project 11356 frigate, the Project 20382 Tigr-class corvette, coastal defence missile systems were on display at the company’s booth.

Surface ships, submarines, support vessels and other boats were berthed in close proximity to the pavilions.

Within the framework of the 2023 IMDS business program, Rosoboronexport held presentations of Russian products for international partners, and unveiled proposals for industrial cooperation in the field of naval shipbuilding.
