Bangladesh’s rising economy has enabled it to increasingly spend on modernising its military capabilities. The country is organising its first international standard air show and defence exhibition in 2022 titled the “Bangladesh Air Show 2022) or “BAS-2022”.
Defseca.com Team has confirmed from responsible authorities in the Bangladesh Air Force that regional and international aircraft manufacturing companies would be participating at the air show.
Aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon from Leonardo, Dassault Aviation Rafale, CAIG J-10C and HAL Tejas Mk 1 will be participating at the air show.
Advanced combat drones, attack helicopters, various types of transport aircraft, air defence systems, radar and other types of equipment will also be displayed at the air show to enthrall visitors.
Turkish, Chinese and Western European defence equipment manufacturers will maintain a heavy presence at the air show. There will also be equipment from neighbouring India at the air show as well as stalls from US-made defence equipment manufacturers such as Boeing.
The Bangladesh Armed Forces are expected to announce some major contracts at the air show. Of these there are several outstanding contracts for multi-role fighter aircraft, primary trainers, VVIP helicopters, attack helicopters, radar systems, anti-drone systems, simulators and aircraft MRO contracts being prepared ahead of the memorable international event of the country.
