MOSCOW, July 20  -- Russia with its military reconnaissance and combat drones plans to take up 10 percent of the world arms market, Dmitry Shugayev, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS), told Sputnik.

"In the medium term, we expect to occupy up to 10 per cent of the international market with our reconnaissance and strike UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles], there are all the prerequisites for this," Shugayev said.

He added that there is a growing interest in Russian military drones and Russia is already supplying "complexes with small reconnaissance drones" to a number of countries.

"Also, in the near future, we expect the first contracts for the supply of our combat drones abroad," Shugayev told Sputnik.
