News Tech: At the Army 2022 defence expo held last week in Moscow, Russia, next to Patriot park, exhibitors from China and Iran showcased their military technology.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited the Chinese stand during the expo, which took place Aug. 15-21. In general, Russia has shown reluctance to purchase military hardware made abroad.
China, on the other hand, showcased a range of defence goods to Russian officials and the general public, including armoured cars, military ambulances, the JF-17 fighter jet powered by a Russian RD-93 engine, and the J-31 jet, a copy of the Su-57 aircraft made by Russia.
However, a Chinese-made robot that resembled a dog was displayed with a grenade launcher connected by a Russian company called Intellect Machine JSC. The robot, manufactured by Unitree Robotics, is reportedly for sale on the Chinese internet marketplace AliExpress, according to Russian media.
A Russian delegation allegedly visited Iran at least twice to view its domestically produced drones, according to Jacob Sullivan, the U.S. national security adviser.
Russia has showed interest in purchasing Iranian technology to offer satellite photographs of cities, an Iranian exhibitor told journalists who stopped by the booth, adding that the equipment can be used for both civilian and military objectives. At the Army 2022 expo, the Russian Defense Ministry inked 36 contracts worth a combined 525 billion rubles ($9 billion) with 24 enterprises in the defence sector.
The ministry added that it anticipates receiving more than 3,700 samples of military hardware.
