"The presentation of the Orlan-10E at LIMA 2017 was due to the requests from a number of countries as to the purchase of aircraft of the type," the expert added.

According to him, the Orlan-10E, which was offered for export, features a high degree of commonality with its baseline model Orlan-10 in service with the Russian Armed Forces.

"There are certain differences between the Orlan-10 and Orlan-10E UAVS but they are insignificant. The export-cleared Orlan-10E is a derivative of the Orlan-10 that has been tested under the harsh conditions of the Syrian theater of war, proving itself as a very effective performer. This matters much when foreign customers make up their mind on buying drones able to conduct electro-optical, signal and electronic intelligence," the expert emphasized.

Previously, Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Sergei Goreslavsky had told TASS: "Foreign customers have been increasingly keen on the Orlan-10E aircraft that performed superbly in the Russian Aerospace Force’s operation in Syria and on a number of other unmanned aircraft systems, e.g. the Takhion and Granat-4."

"We are in detailed negotiations with several countries on selling them Russian drones, with interest in the latter being on the rise," Goreslavsky said.

According to him, "for years, Russia has had to catch up with foreign unmanned aerial system manufacturers. However, Russian developers have reversed the trend of events and the number of their products rivaling the best foreign analogs is growing."
