Morozov, the head of the delegation, noted that the exposition had been formed considering interests of the particular market in specific products, in this case of the Indian market, as well as development of new items by the companies, including necessity of these items and proper timing of their representation: "We offer advanced defense items that the Indian party can purchase via Rosoboronexport as finished products as well as opportunities for joint weapons production at Indian factories under the “Made in India” concept. The centerpieces by KBP at the exhibition were the Pantsir-ME naval system shown for the first time, the BMP-2M Berezhok weapon and the 12.7mm automatic assault weapon system with a powerful cartridge. Participation in any exhibition brings new opportunities for market expansion and mutually advantageous cooperation as well as it is valuable for specialists in terms of skill-sharing”, stated the delegation head. Our work with India began in 1990s. One of the first Indian delegations was received by academician Arkadiy G. Shipunov. The cooperation began with the Konkurs weapon”.
