    Russian Arms Exports to Myanmar

    Post  Viktor on Sat Sep 11, 2010 10:26 am

    After large MIG-29M deal ... large Mi-24 deal. Looks like to me Burma could become major Russian weapons buyer.



    The Burmese Air Force is reported to have bought 62 new helicopters from Russia.

    An airforce source told The Irrawaddy website 50 of the craft are Mi-24 attack helicopters and their main use will be for counter-insurgency.

    The aircraft, also known as the Hind, is armoured and is equipped with cannons, rockets and anti-tank missiles.

    It can also carry up to seven soldiers and their weapons.

    The other 12 helicopters are Mi-2 armoured transports.

    The source says the helicopters are now being assembled in Flying Training Base in Meikthila.

    They will be sent to four squadrons at Magwe Air Base and Ela Air Base.

    Mi-2?

    Very unusual if they are Mi-2s unless they are second hand from Russian Army aviation stocks. The Mi-2 was a Soviet (Mil)design, but was made in a former warsaw pact country so unless this is a bit of the Russian Army getting rid of some old airframes or the companies that maintain the Russian Army helos making a few extra (I remember a few years back they were offering upgraded Mi-2s a cheaper prices than the proposed replacement helos costs) or it might just be an error and they are actually buying real transports like the Mi-17.

    Sounds like old Russian Army stocks as being the source.

    Makes sense as it would make them cheaper and would be a good way to deal with excess stock for the Russian Army.

    For Myanmar it will be a step up in performance for them without a huge cost outlay of proven tested designs that will improve relations and in the future could lead to further purchases and upgrades.

    Armoured Mi-2's???? i didnt think Mi-2's came with armour, or maybe it was suppose to be armed Mi-2's? i have heard of armed versions just not armoured.

    I agree with what people have said, good way to get rid of old equipment and for Burma to re-arm itself cheaply. It about time Russia started to clear out some of its older equipment. I wonder with the increase in boko harem etc activity in Africa if this would be a good time for Russia to try and sell African nations some of its older equipment to help it tackle the terrorists.

    The contract for the Yak-130 for Myanmar

    It is possible that the delivery of the first aircraft under the contract will start in 2016. As a corporation for the current year is a contract with the 420 military representation for quality control and acceptance of products under contract. In addition, before the end of 2017 on the territory of Myanmar must be deployed specialized simulator combat use of the Yak-130.

    Russia and Myanmar sign agreement on military cooperation

    The document envisages cooperation in the navy sphere, military education and other promising spheres

    MOSCOW, June 16. /TASS/. The defense ministries of Russia and Myanmar have signed an agreement on military cooperation, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Thursday.

    "A very serious step has been made toward the development of bilateral military cooperation. We are establishing a predictable legal basis for promising long-term cooperation between our countries. Over the last several years, a lot has been done in developing military and military-technical cooperation. I think that our document will serve as an additional impetus to developing multifaceted cooperation," Antonov said.

    According to the deputy defense minister, the agreement outlines cooperation in the navy sphere, hydrography, topography, military medicine, military education and other promising spheres of military cooperation. He noted that now the two countries "will have enough instruments to do everything possible to strengthen combat readiness of the Armed Forces of Myanmar and Russia."

    Myanmar’s Defense Minister Myint New in turn noted that the two countries are bound by long-term friendly relations. "We want to strengthen and develop these relations in the future. At the current stage, we approached the issue of signing an agreement with full readiness, it was coordinated at all levels, including in the parliament," he said. The defense minister stressed that Myanmar sees great prospects in the sphere of navy cooperation with Russia.

    The Russian Defense Ministry said that the agreement also envisages exchanging information on international security issues, including fight against terrorism, cooperation in the sphere of culture and vacation of servicemen and their families, along with exchanging experience in peacekeeping activities.

    It is good that Myanmar is getting all this military equipment because Myanmar is on the the list of the Anglo Zionist Jews.
