Russia will supply Myanmar with "Pantsiri", drones "Orlan-10E" and a radar


Russia will supply Pantsir-S1 air defense missile systems, Orlan-10E drones and radar stations to Myanmar.

The document was signed in the presence of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who was in Myanmar on an official visit, and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Myanmar, Senior General Min Aung Hline. The signature from the Russian Federation was put by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation for International Military Cooperation, Colonel-General Alexander Fomin.

The legal framework for military-technical cooperation between Russia and Myanmar was created back in 2001. Collaboration is actively evolving. The Russian side managed to deliver to Myanmar 30 MiG-29 fighters, 12 Yak-130 combat training aircraft, ten Mi-24 / Mi-35P helicopters, eight Pechora-2M air defense systems and, in addition, radar stations, artillery systems and various armored vehicles ... In addition, a contract for the supply of six Su-30SME aircraft is being implemented.

All this equipment is serviced and modernized on site, in a joint service technical center established in Myanmar. Both aircraft and armored vehicles are serviced there.

Military cooperation between Russia and Myanmar has been actively developing over the past five years. The Armed Forces of Myanmar regularly participate in the International Army Games, as well as in Russian combat training events. For example, in the Kavkaz-2020 strategic command-staff exercises.

In addition, in 2018, Russia and Myanmar entered into an intergovernmental agreement, implying a simplified procedure for the entry of warships into each other's ports. The Armed Forces of Myanmar are showing interest in other modern Russian models of military equipment.
