Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) has carried out a contract worth over 100 million rubles ($1.5 million) to supply a foreign customer with a batch of ORSIS T-5000 rifles.

“Since 2017, when Rosoboronexport was granted the right to supply civilian and service weapons abroad, the company has considered requests for them from foreign customers worth over $150 million. Several contracts have already been completed, including that for ORSIS T-5000 rifles, and we see great interest in them from the army, police and special forces units of our partners. Today we are negotiating and participating in tenders for the supply of these weapons to a number of countries,” said Igor Sevastyanov, Deputy Director General of Rosoboronexport.

Rosoboronexport and Promtechnologia LLC, the developer and manufacturer of ORSIS rifles, have agreed to work together, which is yielding mutual positive results. The special exporter’s specialists are participating in the development of advanced small arms jointly with ORSIS. For example, Rosoboronexport’s proposals, based on customer requirements and trends in the global arms market, were accommodated in the design of a recently advertised military version of the K-15M rifle.
