The work is underway on air-and sea-launched weapons, he specified.

"Several works are linked with ‘air-to-air,’ air-to-surface’ and air-to-ship’ weapons. And about a third of works are related to coastal missile systems and underwater naval weapons," Obnosov said.

MOSCOW --- Russia’s air-launched weapons produced by the Tactical Missiles Corporation have proven their worth and competitive edge compared to world analogues, Corporation CEO Boris Obnosov said on Thursday.

"Smart air bombs have large export potential. These are the weapons that have proven their efficiency [in Syria], despite their cost. I believe we are on a parity basis with our rivals," the chief executive said.

The weapons’ trials in a real combat environment are always useful for manufactures and developers, Obnosov said.

"No mathematical or partial modeling and even trials at practice ranges can give a full idea of weapons’ capabilities. In real conditions, in the theater of operations, they [the trials] give new food for thought," the Corporation’s chief executive said.
