The Rosoboronexport Company
is in talks with Venezuela on a delivery of five Russian diesel-electric submarines of the Kilo class with missile systems
to that country.
According to a Rosoboronexport representative, Venezuela already
requested a feasibility report on Kilo submarines and displayed interest in a number of other development studies of Russian submarine shipbuilding, displayed at the show, including small submarines of the Malakhit design office.
Diesel submarines of the Kilo class, developed by the Rubin central design office and built by the Admiralteiskie Shipyards were supplied for export since 1986. The last big batch of ships of this class â€“ eight submarines â€“ was delivered to the Chinese navy.
