An Iranian private-sector company signed a contract to export mini jet engines to Russia.
The private-sector knowledge-based firm attending an airshow near Moscow signed the contract with a Russian company to export mini jet engines.
It was signed on the sidelines of MAKS 2019, the International Aviation and Space Show in Russia.
Russian companies have shown interest in buying Iranian mini jet engines, widely used in the pilotless aircraft.
According to the contract, the Iranian and Russian companies will also work on joint production, which would help enhance the Islamic Republic’s exchange of technical know-how and business ties with foreign sides.
MAKS 2019, held at Zhukovsky International Airport near Moscow, is a biennial airshow that opened on Tuesday.
Five Iranian exhibitors have taken part in MAKS 2019, including Iran’s Embassy in Moscow, the Iran Air Show, the International affairs and technological exchange center of the Vice-Presidency for science and Technology Affairs, Aeropub (BARA Aerospace), and AEROSPINA.
On the first day of the airshow, Iran unveiled a homegrown cruise missile, dubbed “Mobeen”.
The Iranian cruise missile has a range of 450 kilometers, weighs 670 kilograms, and can reach an altitude of 45,000 feet. Mobeen is a radar-evading missile with a small cross-sectional area that can reach a velocity of 900 k/h. It can carry warheads as heavy as 120 kilograms.
