Russia’s air-launched weapons produced by the Tactical Missiles Corporation have proven their worth and competitive edge compared to world analogs, Corporation CEO Boris Obnosov said on Thursday.
“Smart air bombs have large export potential. These are the weapons that have proven their efficiency [in Syria], despite their cost. I believe we are on a parity basis with our rivals,” the chief executive said.
The weapons’ trials in a real combat environment are always useful for manufacturers and developers, Obnosov said.
“No mathematical or partial modeling and even trials at practice ranges can give a full idea of weapons’ capabilities. In real conditions, in the theater of operations, they [the trials] give new food for thought,” the Corporation’s chief executive said.
The Tactical Missiles Corporation is one of Russia’s largest defense holding companies. The Corporation’s 100% stock is held by Russia’s State Property Committee. The Corporation is headquartered in the town of Korolyov near Moscow.
The Tactical Missiles Corporation focuses on developing and supplying weapons for air-, ship-borne and ground tactical systems and seaborne underwater armaments.
