Don't forget to translate it...




Saudi Arabia has been negotiating the purchase of Russian weapons


Saudi Arabia has been negotiating with Moscow for the purchase of Russian military equipment. "Competition in this market is very high, and we are on the new players, so for details of our talks, I omit. I can only say that the Russian weapons may take place in the Saudi arsenal," - noted the deputy director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Constantine Biryulin.

Earlier, Saudi Arabia in the procurement of arms and military equipment focused solely on the Western partners, especially the United States. After lengthy visits Russia Saudi military delegation in February and March 2007 memorandum of understanding was signed between the Kingdom and Moscow. In October of that year, French media reported that Saudi Arabia has signed an agreement for the purchase of more than 150 Russian MI-35 (for NATO - Hind) and Mi-17 (Hip). However, until this information has not officially confirmed. In July, there have been reports of negotiations between Russia and Saudi Arabia on the purchase of air defense S-400

I've a question: Should I also translate the articles (or parts thereof) that I use as references and don't quote? Say, I submit a post and list my references in the end, some of which may not be in English, - is it allowed? Please clarify. Thanks.

150 Mig-35s??? wtf? that'll make them the most powerful airforce in the region wont it? and if they get their hands on the s-400 surely that's a regional power game changer?

Not migs, Hinds (mi-35 hind). Those vehicles are monsters and could provide a long range attack (Longbow style). As for the S-400, it would surely make Saudi Arabia a no fly zone for Stealth, and UCAV's!

Not MiG-35, but Mi-35, please recall that Mi-35 is the export version of the Mi-24 helicopter. Most powerful Air Force in the region is still that of Israel.

Russia will not sell all those weapons to Saudis. Just Mi-17. They are too close to USA.
