According to the British military journal “Jane’s Defense Weekly “reported that Russia has recently agreed to export to China is more advanced aircraft technology, to promote military cooperation with China. Some analysts have pointed out that Russia had changed its previous attitude, has many causes.
foreign media that Russia had no choice
According to “Jane’s Defense Weekly” reported that Russia’s defense exports, a senior official said, in to solve the disputes surrounding the intellectual property issues, Russia has proposed the sale to China and the Su-35 Su-33 fighter.
“Jane’s Defense Weekly” reported that China imported in the 1990s the Su-27SK fighter, then launched its own F-11B fighter-bombers. Russia believes that China launched fighter may refer to the Su-27SK fighters and developed out of, so the two sides to start negotiations regarding intellectual property rights, the two sides of the Russian aircraft carrier to China to continue to negotiate the sale.
reported that China does not produce carrier-based aircraft because of their experiences, hopes to further expand the arms trade with Russia, to be able to get the Su-33 carrier-based fighter.

In this agreement, the Chinese side on the issue of intellectual property rights related to the Russian side has made a commitment.
Russia’s Interfax News Agency quoted the deputy chairman of the company Alexander Mikheyev early August, saying that this Russian arms export company has offered to provide the aircraft to Beijing, is now awaiting formal reply. Mikheyev said that Russia has now decided that “on the Su-33 fighters launched a comprehensive cooperation plan”, and now the Chinese are stepping up action in an effort to gain the ability to manufacture aircraft carriers.
Russian industrial exports declined
analysts pointed out that if this report is true, means that Russia’s military cooperation with China the importance of understand more clearly, especially in the current financial crisis, has given Russia’s military manufacturing industry has been no small impact.
7 27, United States, “Defense News” issued by military sales in the global defense industry enterprises in 2008 Top 100. From the list view, the short-listed nine Russian companies, no one in the top 10.
The data indicate that, due to its technology-intensive exports of arms declining, the Russian military outlook is not promising. Russia-related professionals that do not want to see the future, Russia’s arms exports fall to the point where only the iron and steel exports.
present, the Russian arms export a significant reduction in the number of new orders. Russia’s military industrial export capacity recently repeated criticism, media coverage of its military product quality and competitiveness are also many questions. First, Algeria Yinmi Ge-29SMT fighter quality of return, because of Russia’s Northern Norway after serious mechanical factory orders delivery delay period, resulting in breach of contract, terminate the contract. Russia and India in the “Admiral Gorshkov” aircraft carrier of the hand over date and controversial aspects of the project cost has also not yet known. All this makes Russia’s military prestige has been seriously damaged.
the current financial crisis to Russia’s real economy has been a big hit at the same time, the financial crisis on some of the traditional Russian arms importing countries such as India, Vietnam is also a great hit. Therefore, the Russian military out of the woods in order, need a strong purchasing power of the Chinese market.
Russia to take into account the practical needs of China
military manufacturing industry in the Russian crisis hit the market at the same time, the level of China’s military manufacturing industry is on the rise. U.S. “Fortune” magazine, July 8 2009 published online Global 500 list, this ranking, the Chinese military enterprises for the first time into the world top 500.
re-integration after the China Aviation Industry Corporation, with revenues of $ 21.738 billion, profits $ 568 million performance ranked 426, and plates in the aerospace and defense ranked 11th in the world.
the aircraft industry into the world top 500, indicating that China’s military enterprises began to truly competing against world-class military enterprises. China’s military manufacturing level rise caused a lot of concerns about Russian arms exporter.
Russian military analysts believe China’s military growth with those of China procurement of weapons will be increasingly high demand, if we continue to sell some of China’s relatively backward technology products, it will likely completely lost China this big market.
Russian strategic expert Konovalov said: “The Chinese army has become an increasingly modern, so China needs a more modern weaponry.” Therefore, in order to maintain the impact of the Chinese market force, Russia will seriously consider the requirements of major customers.
