Russia is Showing Off Its Best Weapons; From AK-200 Rifles to T-90 Tanks

Since 2010, Rosoboronexport– Russia’s state defense export agency– has made great strides in breaking into the Southeast Asian arms market.

In particular, Rosoboronexport has yet to make meaningful headway in the lucrative Persian Gulf market where major defense system contracts still tend to go to the United States.
