Do not go shoppingThe military preferred to look at Farnborough, and not take

A distinctive feature of the Farnborough international air show 2010 was the almost complete absence of military contracts — in the criteria of the crisis, most countries of the world have reduced defense budgets, the expense of which is carried out and buy new weapons. In general, the air show still turned out to be fascinating — it could look at the statements and the original aircraft the second world war, and the latest technology, adopted or is adopting the same. In 2010, at the air show was dominated by civilian contracts — sold well Sukhoi Superjet 100, Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The military also, visited the air show, sluggish examined presented exposition, cool interested in tactical and technical characteristics of drones and sad gaze escorted carrying away into the distance fighters taking part in the flight program there — you can see, and the means to purchase, do not suffice. According to rough estimates of the organizers of the exhibition, the total amount of the contracts concluded at Farnborough, was 47 billion dollars. A significant proportion of these funds put in the pocket naikrupneyshie the world's aircraft manufacturing consortium Airbus and Boeing. For comparison, during the last air show, held in 2008, participants are able to sell their products for a total of 88.7 billion dollars.

In any case, Raytheon announced that successful tests were conducted specifically CIWS above the sea — the largest range of defeat drone was 3.2 kilometers. In turn, the Pakistani company Pakistan Aeronautical Complex-fitting at an air show two new combat aircraft JF-17 Thunder, taken together with China.

In SIPRI estimated that the fraction of the U.S. in the global arms market in the past year was 30 percent, Russia — 24 percent, Germany 11 percent — and France — eight percent, and Britain — four percent. It should explain what SIPRI, producing estimates takes into account not only the price, and the volumes of deliveries of arms, which is why the institute estimates vary greatly with those of official agencies. In general, fundamentally wrong and how things are going with the British military exports to the point. Even if UKTI and a few over-assessment of the characteristics, it is possible to forgive department. Yet England — Farnborough mistress. So why not brag.]] >
