    Other Minor Russian Military exports/aid

    Post  TR1 on Tue Apr 17, 2012 7:44 pm

    Ok, so instead of posting many small threads for minor (and not so minor) export contracts, I thought it would be easier to have one place.
    This thread will be for ground vehicles, AFVs the like, I guess we should put Air Defense in a separate thread.

    http://lenta.ru/news/2012/04/17/buy/
    Posted this in a separate thread by accident, but once again, Indonesia looking to buy another 37 BMP-3F for over 100 million dollars.


    http://topwar.ru/13532-kazahstan-zakazal-u-rossii-krupnuyu-partiyu-btr-82.html

    Kazakhstan signed contract to buy 90 BTR-82s. Deliveries will start in 2013 and continue for 2 years.
    This is not the first BTR-82 contract for Kazakhstan. Under the first, they already took deliveries of 30 vehicles in 2011, and are receiving 70 this year.
    A 3rd contract is likely in the future.

    Good idea to have an export news section.

    The Russian Military-Industrial Complex can not find enough domestic orders to ensure that the design and production facilities maintain efficient and profitable/sustainable operations. The excess capacity will have to go to exports.

    Arms exports are also a political tool.

    Well I think that domestic orders will come as they still have lots of obsolete stuff in service that they need to deal with first... once that has been dealt with they can start with large orders which should help reduce prices.

    Russian Military Aid to Afghanistan

    Post  max steel on Fri Oct 09, 2015 2:33 pm

    Russia to Sign Contract on Mi-35 Deliveries to Afghanistan in October

    Russia plans to sign a contract on the delivery of several Mi-35 helicopters to Afghanistan.Russia will continue providing support to Afghan government forces and plans to sign a contract on the delivery of several Mi-35 helicopters to Afghanistan in October, Russian presidential envoy to Afghanistan and head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Second Asia Department Zamir Kabulov told the Izvestia newspaper.


    Afghanistan’s first Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum has asked Russia for military aid amid a fight against Islamic State (ISIL) militants."Russia is already providing certain assistance in strengthening the capabilities of the Afghan government forces," Kabulov said, explaining that Russia delivers weaponry to Afghanistan and provides military training for Afghan officers.

    According to the Russian envoy, this process will continue and Afghanistan will receive more Russian aid in the near future."We plan to conclude a contract with the Afghan side in October on the delivery, on a commercial basis, of several Mi-35 combat helicopters," Kabulov told the Russian Izvestia newspaper.

    He stressed that the key to peace and security in Afghanistan is not the foreign troops present in the country."Afghanistan has an army and many Afghans are capable of bearing arms and know how to use them well. We need to strengthen the national potential, and not try to defend the Afghan government with foreign troops," Kabulov said, adding that the presence of NATO/US forces in the country has led to the rise of extremists, not their decline.


    Afghanistan continues to be in a state of political and social turmoil as the Taliban and Islamic State (ISIL) radicals take advantage of instability in the country, which has persisted since the 2001 US-led invasion. On Thursday, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia Gen. Valery Gerasimov said that the number of ISIL militants in Afghanistan stands at around 2,000-3,000 and is growing constantly.

    Moscow Completing Firearms Delivery to Afghanistan

    Afghanistan received 10,000 AK-47 assault rifles from Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow is completing the delivery of a batch of firearms to Kabul under the latest contract between the two states, Zamir Kabulov, the head of the department in the Russian Foreign Ministry responsible for Afghanistan, said Wendesday.

    “Deliveries are underway. This morning, an official handover ceremony [for the batch of 10,000 AK-47 assault rifles] was held in Kabul with Afghan officials and our Ambassador [Alexander Mantytskiy] in attendance. So the deliveries are nearing completion,” Kabulov told RIA Novosti.

    According to Kabulov, who is also the Kremlin's special envoy to Afghanistan, a new contract between the sides for firearms is not currently being planned.

    In October, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani asked Russia to supply artillery, small arms and helicopters to the central Asian country to aid it in its fight against Islamist insurgents.

    Russia plans to buy T-80U tanks and BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles that gave to South Korea in 1990s as repayment of the Soviet debt. It is assumed that the tanks are designed for disassembly for parts, but interviewed military experts do not rule out the possibility of resale to Cyprus and Yemen.

    Sri Lanka arms

    Post  George1 on Sat Sep 23, 2017 6:25 pm

    Sri Lanka is negotiating the purchase of six Su-30K fighters from Baranovichi

    According to Sri Lankan website "Sri Lanka Guardian" (opposition), the government of Sri Lanka is negotiating with Rosoboronexport JSC about the acquisition of the remaining six former Su-30K fighters in storage at OJSC "558th Aviation repair plant "in Baranovichi (Belarus), as well as a number of other Russian weapons in the account of Russian loans.


    According to the resource, the Sri Lankan Air Force wants to acquire six former Su-30K Indian fighters remaining in the Belarusian 558th Arz in Baranovichi after the other 12 Su-30K fighters were contracted by Angola (the first two were recently delivered in Angola after repairs on the 558th ARZ).

    Negotiations on the acquisition of the remaining six Su-30K fighters took place at the 558th Arz in Baranovichi from November 2 to 4, 2016, with the participation, on the one hand, of high-ranking Sri Lankan Air Force officers and companies Lanka Logistics and Technologies Limited and Czechoslovak Export Ltd., and representatives of Rosoboronexport, Irkut Corporation and 558th Aircraft Repair Plant on the other hand, and a joint protocol was signed on the results of the talks.

    The purchase of these six Su-30K fighters is part of the proposed contract for Sri Lanka's purchase of arms from Rosoboronexport from two state-owned credit lines provided by Moscow to Sri Lanka.

    Russia's first credit line worth about $ 300 million was offered by Russia to Sri Lanka in 2010 as a follow-up to the Russian-Sri Lankan intergovernmental agreement of February 8, 2010, but has not yet been used by the Sri Lankan side. The loan agreement expired in March 2015. However, the Ministry of Finance of Russia and the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) of Russia, on an exceptional basis, decided to finance projects within the framework of the intergovernmental agreement of February 8, 2010 for this credit line. At the talks in Moscow on August 23, 2017, the secretary of the Ministry of Defense of Sri Lanka assured that the agreement on extending the term of the loan and the contract will be signed before the end of 2017.

    In March 2017, during the state visit to Moscow of the President of Sri Lanka Maytripala Sirisena, the Russian side offered Sri Lanka another credit line worth about $ 400 million.

    According to the resource, of the approximately $ 700 million of the total amount of loans allocated by the Russian side, $ 146 million should go to pay a contract signed in 2013 for the purchase of Sri Lanka by 14 Mi-171 helicopters (including two in the VVIP-bundle) . The remaining approximately $ 546 million, the Sri Lankan side plans to spend three more purchases from Rosoboronexport, the six Su-30K fighters, one Gepard 5.1 patrol ship, and 33 BTR-82A armored vehicles to equip the Sri Lankan battalion of the peacekeeping contingent UN in Mali.

    About negotiations with Sri Lanka concerning the construction of its fleet for JSC "Zelenodolsky Plant named after A.M. Gorky "patrol ship project" Gepard 5.1 ", our blog has already reported. The Lanki Resource informs that negotiations on this issue are at the final stage, and that the signing of a firm contract by the parties is possible at the end of September.

    Earlier, the website "Sri Lanka Guardian" in another material said that from Sri Lankan side the contractor for the purchase of the patrol ship of the "Gepard 5.1" project is to be made by the Lankian conglomerate Capital Maharaja Organization Limited, which is in fact the local partner of Rosoboronexport, and which, apparently , will provide financing. The resource quoted excerpts from the draft contract of Rosoboronexport with the Ministry of Defense of Sri Lanka, according to which the contract value will amount to 197.89887577 million dollars, of which $ 179.41 million is the cost of delivery of the patrol ship of the project "Gepard 5.1", 17.91 million dollars - the cost of training personnel, and 0.57887577 million dollars - the cost of ammunition for the armament of the ship.

    It is reported that earlier the command of the Navy of Sri Lanka did not support this purchase, considering the cost of the ship too high, but then changed its mind - perhaps under pressure from government circles. According to the resource, the active supporters of the purchase of the patrol ship of the Gepard 5.1 project in Russia are the President of Sri Lanka, Maytripal Sirisen, and the ambassador of Sri Lanka in Russia, Viraasingh Saman Kumar Ranjit, who is highly influential in government circles.

    The first Mi-26T2 helicopter for Jordan



    Recall that on April 17, 2016, JSC Helicopters of Russia concluded contract No. RH-15-0651-04-1 for the supply of four Mi-26T2 helicopters with the Jordanian state bureau The King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB). The helicopters, apparently, will be transferred to the Jordanian Air Force.

    Jordan became the second foreign military customer of Mi-26T2 helicopters after Algeria.

    The Philippines has transferred 5000 Kalashnikov assault rifles and 5000 helmets SSh-68

    According to the Department of Information and Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, on October 25, 2017, Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu and Philippine President Rodrigo Duteret participated in the ceremony of handing over to the Philippine party of the party military products, including small arms, as well as army trucks delivered from the Russian Federation.



    The ceremony was held in the port of Manila aboard the BCP "Admiral Panteleev" of the Pacific Fleet. Earlier on Wednesday, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry, who is on an official visit to the Philippines, laid a wreath at the monument to the national hero of the country, Jose Protasio Risalu.

    On Tuesday [October 24], an agreement was signed between the governments of Russia and the Philippines on military-technical cooperation. The document was signed by Sergei Shoigu and the head of the military department of the Philippines, Delfin Lorenzana. The agreement was signed on the margins of the Fourth Defense Ministers Meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Dialogue Partners ("SMOA Plus") in Clark (Philippines).

    A detachment of Pacific Fleet ships under the command of the deputy commander of the Maritime Flotilla of the various forces of Rear Admiral Eduard Mikhailov, as part of the Admiral Vinogradov BCP, Admiral Panteleev and the tanker Boris Butoma, arrived in Manila a few days ago.

    In total, seafarers of the Pacific Fleet during the campaign, which will last about four months, will make nine unofficial visits and business visits to foreign ports. The main goal is the demonstration of the St. Andrew's flag in the Asia-Pacific region and the further development of naval cooperation with the APR countries. It is planned that the arrival of Russian ships in Manila will last until October 26.


    The bmpd comment. Judging by the published certificate of acceptance (see below), during this transfer, the Filipino side received 20 Ural-4320 (6x6) trucks, 5000 Kalashnikov AKM (6P1) caliber 7.62 mm (in the certificate they are mistakenly designated as AK-74M), 1 million cartridges to them of caliber 7.62 mm with bullets 57-Н-231, and 5000 steel helmets СШ-68. The property was delivered to the Philippines by a large landing ship of the Pacific Fleet "Nikolay Vilkov" project 1171.

    Also, in the presence of Russia's Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport, and Philippine Defense Minister Dolphin Lorenzana signed a contract to supply the Philippines with a new production of Russian hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers RPG-7V and shots for them.

    They are from storage no doubt.... they are definitely AKMs and not AK-100s.

    That makes sense as the 7.62 x 39mm is probably easier for them to get more rounds and they hit the target quite hard too.

    They have mentioned having millions of Kalashnikovs in storage so it will be interesting to see if they will hand out some more to other allies like Syria and Afghanistan.

    A few contracts for new rifle designs would be good too...
