    About time they do that. France, EU, Israel and its regular rival USA are quite ahead in all these years that Russia lost. Russian weapons are rugged and reliable but now they should be offering something that can make people switch over from West to Russia. Su-30 MKM was the starting when Malaysia dumped Super Hornets and went for MKMs. Russia still need to improvise as both Su-27 series as well as MiG-29 series have reached the end of their design lives in aeronautics as well as submarines, warships and tanks are reaching the end of their design life.
