Those 3 countries are now in need of such tanks and could buy togather at least 1500 tanks or 2000 easily. Russia could send a lot quickly as they are already produced and nedd just upgrade. Iran and irad have almost no tanks to operate against modern ATGM (don t tell me M1 abrams we saw how it handle kornet missile).

    As the tanks belongs to russian army they will receive the money and they could invest in buying T-90M and T-14. They don t need all those t-80 that they have in reserve and if they can chose they would prefere T-14 instaed of t-80

    I doubt they're interested in T-80s of all things, Iraq has already ordered T-90s, Iran is making there own T-90M so if anything they'd buy that if they could and Syria will probly go with T-90s too.

    I don't really see a market for the T-80s, those that want a capable tank will probly go with the T-90 anything more advance would be the T-90SM and those on a budget will most likely go for an upgraded T-72.

    At this point Russia needs not to give exit to the T-80s. A proper maintenance and some upgrade if possible (in this order) are good news for Russia.

    In late 80s SSSR or USSSR have less then 100 T-80( produced from 1976-1978), 3700T-80B, around 500T-80BV and lest then 100T-80U and UDs.

    Mass production og T-80U-Ud in USSR start in 1990. After collapse of USSR Russia have around 4000 T-80s all versions in her inventory. Till 1995/96 they have more then 5000 T-80s all versions. They produced from 1990-1995 around 1000 T-80Us for Russian ARMY and have beside them around 500-550 T-80UDs. UD and U is same tank with deferent engine, and because that i wright that Russia have 1500 T-80U/UD...

    To day Russia have 250 active T-80U and  350-400 T-80BV.
