    "Ukraine and Thailand are close to finalising a programme that would support a Royal Thai Army (RTA) plan to locally build the 8×8 BTR-3E1 armoured personnel carrier (APC), a senior official from Ukraine’s state-owned defence exports and industry agency Ukroboronprom told IHS Jane’s on 3 November. He said the plan would feature three phases and be implemented over the long term as Thailand gradually develops local industrial capability. The programme would support future RTA programmes to procure the BTR-3E1 as well as plans to export the APC to regional countries. The RTA ordered in 2008 and 2011 more than 220 BTR-3E1s, which are being manufactured by the Kharkov Morozov Machine Design Bureau."

    "According to information provided by the hacktivist group CyberBerkut, Qatar is willing to spend big bucks on high-explosive fragmentation bombs from Ukraine at $2,100 each.

    Ukraine, set to earn some extra money at the expense of the complicated situation in the Middle East, is allegedly planning on supplying weapons through front companies and offshore companies, according to the recent investigation by hacktivists CyberBerkut. Kiev is allegedly ready to conclude a lucrative contract with Qatar for the purchase of Soviet-made high-explosive OFAB-250-270 bombs. Moreover, it seems that Qatar has an urgent need for this ammunition, given that Doha set the price much higher than the market price at $2000 apiece instead of $700.

    The details of the deal were obtained by CyberBerkut after they managed to hack into the company's mail servers ‘Spetstehnoexsport’ (part of the group ‘Ukroboronprom’). The mediator between the company and the Qatari Ministry of Defense is a Polish company called Level 11. According to CyberBerkut, Qatar’s Air Force fighter aircraft are the French “Mirage 2000” and light attack aircraft Alpha Jet, which do use Soviet bombs. In this regard, the hackers have concluded that Doha is buying high-explosive bombs to destroy ground targets."

    I suppose the only good thing about this is that they won't be dropped in Donbas. Feel sorry for the poor people in Yemen and possibly Syria.

    Wonder in who's pocket the money will end up in?

    You means this BM uses the old T-80 turret style, just like T-90 first generation still used the T-72's round turret instead of polygonal T-90A?

    Honestly I cannot notice which type of turret from the presented pics.

    "BTR-4 8×8 wheeled armoured personnel carrier (APC) designed in Ukraine by the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (SOE KMDB) was spotted near the frontlines of Northeastern Nigeria.

    The BTR-4 was delivered for Nigerian Army in 2014. Previously there was no information about contracts on delivery of such armaments to Nigeria. However, the information about the repair works of T-72AV at State Enterprise “Lviv Armor Repair Plant” appeared in September 2014. Concerning the BTR-4E, it seems that small part of 42 BTR-4E APCs batch designed for Iraq, was sold to Nigeria, after Iraq refused to accept them.

    The layout of the BTR-4 represent a change compared to the older BTR-60/70/80 designed in the Soviet Union. The vehicle has a conventional layout similar to western designs like the German TPz Fuchs with the driver’s and commander’s compartment at the front part of the hull, the engine and transmission compartment in the middle, and the troop compartment at the rear. The troops enter and leave the vehicle either through the rear doors or the roof hatches, and the driver and the commander are provided with doors located on the sides of the hull."

    How about this then

    18 December, 2015 BY: Dominic Perry, London

    Saudi Arabia has tentatively signed for 30 examples of the developmental Antonov An-178 tactical transport, in a deal that could eventually see the Kingdom producing the aircraft locally.

    Detailed in a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Antonov and Saudi company Taqnia Aeronautics, the deal will see the partners deliver the aircraft to the Royal Saudi Air Force.

    It further builds on the growing relationship between the Riyadh, Taqnia and the Ukrainian airframer. They are already collaborating on the development of the An-132 freighter – a modernised version of the 1970s-era An-32 – that will be assembled in Saudi Arabia. Taqnia also is promoting special-mission variants of the An-148.

    Croatia not happy with Ukraine

    Post  d_taddei2 on Wed Mar 30, 2016 2:07 am

    it looks like Croatia isn't very happy with Ukraine and its corrupt ways, this is a complete joke and only further loses credibility of Ukraine arms exports nobody will touch them now. At best maybe ex soviet small arms might be sold if there cheap.

    http://sputniknews.com/europe/20160330/1037175180/ukraine-croatia-jet-corruption.html

    After purchasing a fleet of fighter jets from Ukraine, Croatian military police have launched a corruption probe into the acquisition.

    In July 2013, the Croatian Defense Ministry signed a deal with Ukrspecexport, an arms company owned by the Ukrainian government. Included in the arrangement was the stipulation that the defense company would provide Croatia with 12 Mikoyan MiG-21 fighter jets.

    These were delivered in July 2015, but five of the aircraft were quickly removed from service due to technical problems.

    Administrative Chaos, Corruption Prompted Crimea to Leave Ukraine
    Given that almost half of the order was too defective to function, the Croatian military police launched a corruption probe into the purchase, and uncovered some damning details.

    The investigation found that the jets were fitted with outdated parts from Bulgaria, Algeria, and the former Soviet Union. These parts do not meet the technical requirements laid out in the contract signed by Ukrspecexport.

    Officials also found that five of the fighters were used, and, in fact, are currently property of the Yemen Air Force.

    As investigations continue, the Croatian government is shopping for additional aircraft to replace its aging fleet.

    At the top of the list are Lockheed Martin’s F-16 and Saab’s JAS-39. The government is also considering South Korea’s T-50, Israel’s Kfir, and the French Mirage.

    Ilyushin Il-78 are painted in PLANAF tactical camouflage was spotted in Nikolayev (Ukraine) in April 2016. The plane after is expected to be delivered in May to China. China ordered totally three refurbished IL-78 air-refueling planes from Ukraine in 2011. Besides, it was also reported that China ordered 34 IL-76MD transport planes and four IL-78 refueling planes from Russia in 2005, but the plan ran aground later.



    The Ilyushin IL-78 air-to-air refuelling tanker aircraft is a four-engine tanker principally used for in-flight refuelling. It was designed and developed on the basis of a similar predecessor, the IL-76, and has the Nato reporting name Midas. The maiden flight of IL-78 took place on 26 June 1983 and the aircraft entered into service in 1984. About 53 aircraft are currently operational worldwide."

    There are no Russian military orders, probably some spares still get their way into Russia for civilian operated aircraft. Well they seem to have signed few contracts with Middle East countries, possibly India and Turkey, so they will probably manage to survive for now.

    I suppose i will put this here:

    "Ukrainian defense enterprises are working on the development of an anti-ship cruise missile complex in order to counter the threats coming from Black and Azov seas, that reported info-news.eu.

    According to the “Narodna armiya” (People’s army) magazine of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the new system will be known as “Neptune”.



    One of the leading defense enterprises of Ukraine specialized in the high-precision weaponry oversees the development of the news anti-ship missile complex.

    The missile complex will be produced in two different variants: ship-based and coast-based. The cruise missile is designed to be launched from a container similar to the one used for C-300 surface-to-air missile complex."

    Yeah resemblance is more than obvious. But i suppose that might be due to fact work on it started like in early 80s so much of it was outsourced to companies in Ukraine too most likely.

    Stealing the photo fits in with Kiev's new modus operandi (don't pay if you don't have to), saves money by eliminating the need to build a model for photography and creates the illusion that they actually have something other than a sketch on the back of a fag packet.

    "The Ministry of Defence Myanmar wants to buy more Ukrainian BTR-3U wheeled armored personnel carriers, according to military-informant.com.

    Myanmar expects to buy undisclosed number BTR-3U armored personnel carriers, which were very effective during the border crisis with China in early 2015.

    The BTR-3U armored personnel carrier was jointly developed in 2000 by Ukrainian and UAE companies as a private venture. The BTR-3U is an improved variant of the Soviet BTR-80 armored personnel carrier, however it is a newly built vehicle, rather than upgrade of existing APC.

    The BTR-3U is armed with Shkval armament module. It is fitted with a 30-mm dual-fed cannon, 7.62-mm coaxial machine gun, 30-mm automatic grenade launcher and Konkurs anti-tank guided missiles. Weapons on the Shkval module can be replaced, fitting it with different anti-tank missiles and so on.

    Armor of the BTR-3U provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. It is fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression systems.
