Malaysia has acquired PBB-AE (P-77) air-to-air missiles from Russia in the total sum of $35 million, Lenta.ru reports. Nikolai Dimidyuk, a senior representative of Russia's defense export giant, Rosoboronexport, stated that the contract for the delivery of those missiles had been signed at DSA-2012 arms show in Kuala-Lumpur. "The main result of our participation in the exhibition was the 35-million-dollar contract that we signed to deliver air-to-air PBB-AE to the Air Force of Malaysia," the official stated at the DSA-2012 arms show, which ended in Malaysia Thursday. The first batch of the missiles will arrive in Malaysia before the end of 2012. According to Dimidyuk, Russia usually ships first batches of defense orders during six-nine months after the agreement has been signed. News agencies previously reported that the deliveries of Russian medium-range Buk air defense complexes to Malaysia may start after 2015. .
