From Condor to Oryol
Following the legendary Shkval, Region developed Yastreb (English: Hawk) - an anti-submarine airborne self-guided missile - which was designed to defeat submarines from planes and helicopters and became an improved version of Condor. The third rocket of this type was the Oryol (English: Eagle). Later on, the company's arsenal included Liven and Zagon (English: Rainfall and Pinfold) anti-submarine projectiles, adjustable and controllable aircraft bombs with laser, television and satellite guidance systems, small-sized surface ship torpedo complexes for fighting submarines and attacking torpedoes, and much more.
Even in the 1980's, the Region's developments were interested abroad: the first foreign customers came from Yugoslavia, Cuba, Syria, India and other countries. In 1991, when the set economic ties collapsed, this experience was particularly useful. With an access to foreign clients, Region increased its export component so much that even the default of 1998 was relatively painless for the company.
