    During the upcoming Army-2016 military expo, the visitors will be able to observe and inspect cutting-edge military hardware that is so far only available in Russia.

    Top Russian defense contractors are expected to present their finest merchandise to prospective buyers from all over the world.

    Major General Roman Kordyukov, Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of Scientific Research and Engineering Support of Advanced Technologies (Innovative Research) of the Russian Ministry of Defense, told Sputnik that international military expos play an important role in the process of manufacturing and developing Russian military hardware.

    "Analysis of this type of events, which are held under the auspices of the Russian Defense Ministry, shows that we've managed to bring together developers, manufacturers and consumers of military and double-purpose hardware, and provide them with comfortable conditions for cooperation," Maj. General Kordyukov explained.

    The general also said the results of the last year’s forum have shown that Russia’s foreign partners are quite interested in visiting such events. According to Kordyukov, the Army-2016 forum is expected to be attended by military delegations from virtually every corner of the world, including members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Shanghai Cooperation Organization, BRICS, along with a host of Asian, Middle Eastern, European, African and American nations.

    The participants of the forum will engage in a variety of events, including round-table panels, conferences and briefings. The forum itself will be held on the premises of the Patriot Congress and Exhibition Center, along with the Alabino testing range and Kubinka airfield.

    The International Military Technology Forum Army-2016 is scheduled to be held in Kubinka, a western suburb of Moscow, on September 6-11.
