    Well that's a pretty big stake, and Russia also sell to it's allies what's wrong with that?

    I love Russian weapons as much as i hate the anti US non sense...

    It is different, though Russia is learning now too.

    Soft low interest loans to countries that are then used to buy weapons is the key, though the US takes it one step further and calls it "aide".

    It is pretty much the same thing... except with the Russian model the Russian taxpayer lends the country in question some money at a very low interest rate which is then spent on Russian exports to that country... the difference is that eventually the country in question will pay back the Russian taxpayer.

    Another difference is that Russia doesn't pretend to be some wonderful force for good helping its allies with "aide", that is in actual fact just a subsidy of the US military industrial complex.

    Of course if Iraq actually want to use this equipment in service there would be the issue of the US developing effective counters to the Russian gear and then either directly using it against Iraq or handing it to Israel.

    Kinda like India spending billions on a 5th gen fighter and then handing the information to China who then sells it or hands it over to Pakistan...

    If they pay their money they will get export models of this equipment, and it will be in the terms and conditions that they don't share secret information.

    Whether they are successful at that or not is another question... but if you want to keep something secret... don't sell it to anyone... even your own forces... super secret. Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil

    That would be very bizarre and entertaining.


    Don't rule it out. Iraqs government is not pro-western. The US has to treat it like an ally but that is something that will break.

    Lebanon to Russia to Diversify Army Weapon Sources

    Post  iraqidabab on Thu Aug 21, 2014 4:21 pm

    http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/143978-qahwaji-to-russia-to-diversify-army-weapon-sources

    Army chief General Jean Qahwaji is scheduled to travel to Russia soon to discuss ways that Moscow can provide the Lebanese army with military aid, news reports said on Wednesday.

    Qahwaji aims to diversify the sources of military weapons provided to Lebanon within the $500 million quota allocated to the army and as part of the one billion Saudi grant in that regard, As Safir daily reported.

    Former Premier and head of al-Mustaqbal Movement MP Saad Hariri announced on August 6 that Saudi Arabia will grant Lebanon one billion dollars to the military institution to “combat terrorism.”

    Media information said that $500 million of the grant will be given in cash to the Lebanese army to get the weapons and ammunition needed.

    Qahwaji had reiterated to his visitors that Hariri told him to “find the best suitable contract for the military institution, and we will be right behind you,” according to As Safir Wednesday.

    It also revealed that the army chief will visit Russia soon after he held several contacts with the Russian Ambassador Alexander Zasypkin in Beirut to sign the arms deal with the leadership of the Russian army.

    Qahwaji is expected to visit several western and eastern capitals to purchase the weapons, added the daily, pointing that the U.S. has put its weapons warehouses in Cyprus under the disposal of the Lebanese army since the latest incidents that flared in the northeastern border town of Arsal.

    Hariri, who made a surprise visit to Lebanon at the beginning of August after three years abroad, had left back to Jeddah a few days afterwards to “hold discussions with Saudi leaders on the aid granted to the Lebanese army.”

    In December 2013 Saudi Arabia had granted three billion dollars for the purchase of arms from France for the benefit of the Lebanese army.

    Not about India, but there is nowhere else to put this...

    Russia to supply military equipment to Tunisia

    The Russian government has also agreed in principle to provide a 500 million U.S. dollar loan to Tunisia

    TUNIS, September 05 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will supply military equipment to Tunisia as part of security assistance efforts, Tunisian Foreign Minister Mongi Hamdi said on Thursday.

    The supplies will include bullet-proof vests and night-vision devices, he told the Express FM radio.
    The Russian government has also agreed in principle to provide a 500 million U.S. dollar loan to Tunisia.
    Hamdi, who arrived in Moscow on September 2 on a working visit, has held talks with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The discussion focused on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa.
    The ministers also reviewed the implementation of the agreements reached at the 5th session of the Russian-Tunisian inter-governmental commission on trade, economic, scientific and technological cooperation, which was held in Tunis in May of this year.

     - This could be very big, as Tunisia has never bought Russian weapons before!

    In 2010-2012 as the title of topic says, Russia's position was weakened in arms market of Middle East

    1. US arms exports to S.Arabia
    2. Cancellation of arms deal with Libya because of Qaddafi's removal in 2011
    3. Cancellation of an arms deal with Iraq in 2012 due to US pressure
    4. Sanctions in Iran resulted to the cancellation of S-300 missile deal

    But now in 2015, i think Russia's position got remarkably strong:

    1. Russia, Egypt seal preliminary arms deal worth $3.5 billion in 2014
    2. The arms deal with Iraq was resumed after ISIS seized big areas of its territory in 2014
    3. The lifting of sanctions in Iran has as an outcome the s-300 missile deal to be resumed in 2015
    4. Syria gets Russian arms under deals signed since conflict begun and it is continuing till now
