Unmanned aerial vehicles, guided missiles, and long-range weapons systems.

These and more were shown off by China for the Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on Monday. The showcase was part of a military expo near Moscow.

Around 85 foreign companies joined the yearly forum as well as organizations from seven countries.

According to a video, released by Russia’s defense ministry, the nation’s military chief Sergei Shoigu also inspected equipment from Iran and India.

During the tour, he praised his country’s new fighter jets and its so-called accomplishments in Ukraine.

He then criticized Western equipment as “far from flawless.”

That exhibition also featured several armored vehicles build in the West.

At the forum, the Russian minister also ordered the production of short-range air-to-air guided missiles.

The weapon is capable of striking targets at all angles and is highly maneuverable in air combat.
