Russia predicted losses in the arms markets of Asia

A new failure for the Russian Federation in Asia was predicted by the East Asia Forum portal. According to the two authors of the aforementioned online platform, Richard A. Bitzinger and Kenneth Boutin, this failure will be associated with one of the most important export destinations for the Russian Federation in the Asia-Pacific region.

We are talking about Russian-made weapons systems, which, according to the publication's experts, will increasingly yield positions in the markets to Western counterparts. In addition, the PRC will begin to play a more prominent role in this regard.

The authors suggest that in the eyes of potential buyers, Russian weapons have shown their ineffectiveness in the Ukrainian conflict. There will also be sanctions imposed by the United States and the EU, as well as the inability for Russia itself to supply weapons while the conflict itself is going on.

The Russian military industry has long been dependent on exports. India and China remain its two largest arms buyers. And in total, more than 61% of Russian arms sales in the period from 2017 to 2021 were in Asia and Oceania. In recent years, China has bought engines for its fighter jets from Russia, as well as purchased S-400 air defense systems, helicopters and naval guns from Moscow. And India, although it has sought to diversify its arms purchases - in part because of concerns about the quality of Russian arms imports - is still a major buyer of Russian arms.

India has previously bought MiG-29 and Su-30 fighter jets, T-90 tanks, warships and anti-ship missile systems from Russia. Another lucrative market for Russian arms manufacturers is Southeast Asia, where Su-27 and Su-30 fighter jets (Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam) are exported. Moscow also sold its air-to-air missiles and helicopters to the entire region.

Nevertheless, the sanctions may affect future plans, because, as the authors of the text note, some Russian weapons use Western components. But it's not only that.

Russia's weak record in Ukraine will hurt the reputation of Russia's arms exports. The apparent inability of Russian weapons to ensure victory is likely to deter new and existing customers from purchasing them.

the authors suggest.

Western, primarily American and European arms suppliers will immediately come into the vacuum left on the market, and China will not miss the opportunity.

    after these words, it doesn't even make sense to discuss these types of line writers.

    Richard Bitzinger and Kenneth Butin do not happen to have Ukrainian roots.
    Back in 2014, after their sanctions, these experts predicted a collapse for us.
    And after the start of the NWO, we were already slapped with so many packages of sanctions, and after each - Russia, Russia. And nothing has changed. But for some reason, their prices are rising for EVERYTHING by leaps and bounds, and this winter has not yet come!

    - Yes, but what other reaction would be expected from "buyers of Russian weapons"! - Huge areas of fields covered with shell craters ("lunar landscape") - from a nightmarish number of shells fired from guns produced back in the days of the USSR and long removed from service - shot without proper adjustment and a well-functioning artillery fire system (say in short - shooting at squares) - without causing much damage to the enemy - all this is not very impressive and does not induce the desire of "weapon buyers" to purchase shipments of Russian weapons from Russia !!! - Moreover, at the same time - all the media (and especially the Russian media) - in the most detailed way and very carefully and constantly - themselves demonstrate the phenomenal accuracy of strikes by the American M142 HIMARS systems; British M777 howitzers; French artillery mounts "Caesar" and other "imported guns" and firing systems that today fire at the LDNR and "other objects"! - No, well, really - our media demonstrate it in such detail and so scrupulously to the whole world - that no advertising is needed here (sorry - for the blasphemous reflection) - but for the Armed Forces of Ukraine - this is a confirmation of the accuracy of their shooting and even a "kind of adjustment" for further their shooting at LDNR facilities - from our media - !!!
    - And the weak, ineffective strikes of our attack aircraft - very, very little contribute to advertising our VKS!
    - It's the same with Ka-52 attack helicopters! - Well, which of the "import helicopter pilots" will agree to make sorties at a height of 30 meters and get holes from small arms (and if higher, they can shoot down) ???
    - The actions of our armed forces - artillery, aviation; demonstration of operation of means of communication; which so constantly "cover" our media - all this renders a "disservice" to our arms market! - Although, what else should they cover!

    I don’t agree, our equipment shows itself well in the SVO, much will be finalized taking into account the hostilities and our weapons remain the best of the best in terms of price / quality ratio ......

    Not surprisingly, everyone sees the failure of NWO tactics. Weapons to break resistance even ter. Russia has no defense, everything is decided only by guns, and they are inferior to the Western ones. Super success only in the media. Even the nuclear power plant could not be protected - complete impotence. Instead of protection, they began to run around with complaints about international organizations.

      Artillery, as it was the god of war, remains so.

    Following the logic of the authors, after fleeing from Afghanistan, the Pentagon should have started purchasing from Ukroboronprom instead of Ration or Lockheed ...
