reason to buy
From the Soviet era onwards, Russia has traditionally developed its own defense technology in competition with Western nations. Following the disbandment of the Soviet Union, Russia’s investment in the modernization of its defense systems reduced drastically, as funds were diverted towards the reconstruction of the country; since this disbanding, Russia has been reluctant to allow foreign companies into its defense industry, an attitude that has proved to be a strong entry barrier for foreign OEMs. Although the country is modernizing its armed forces under The Russian State Arms Program to 2020, only domestic companies are involved in the modernization process.
