    Uganda acquired T-72B tanks

    Russia has become a major partner of Uganda's military-technical cooperation in 2010, when the contracts were awarded in the amount of $ 740 million for the supply of 6 Su-30MK2, 44 new T-90S tanks, air defense systems and a number of other weapons. This contract made Uganda the largest partner of "Rosoboronexport" in sub-Saharan Africa, while in 2013 were not signed a contract worth about $ 1 billion with Angola. February 17 corporation "Rostec" (which includes "Rosoboronexport") today announced that its "daughter" of "RT - global resources" won in Uganda tender for construction of the country's first oil refinery, and the project cost was estimated at $ 3 billion, and Russian share in the project consortium, to be established under the auspices of "Rostec" will be 60%.

    Uganda wants to buy Russian weapons for another 740 million dollars

    Now we are talking about the amount of 740 million dollars - that is comparable to the first known Ugandan Service contract in 2010 for the purchase of Russian weapons. Based on the amount of funds requested, we can assume that, in addition to the related article, "Vedomosti", planned the return of the Ugandan side of the issue of the acquisition of the second batch of Su-30MK2 (another of the six machines), as well as the acquisition of the second battalion set of T -90S.

    86 tank commanders trained in Uganda

    Uganda People's Defence Force have 44 T-90S tanks, 10 T-72 tanks, 200 tanks T-54/55, as well as an unknown number (up to 60) received in 2016 from the Russian T-72B tanks as part of the latest service contracts purchase of Russian weapons. Apparently, it was recently obtained from the Russian tanks T-72B were demonstrated at the graduation ceremony of tank commanders in KAWATS 16 December. Perhaps it is for this type of tanks and train these officers.

    T-90S tanks of the armed forces of Uganda

    On the page on twitter.com of Uganda's President Yoweri Kagut Museveni, a photo was posted of the president's visit to the Uganda ground and air defense joint exercises at the Kalama Armoured Warfare Training School (KAWATS) of the Uganda People's Defense Force in Kabamba near Mubene on July 23, 2017. The photo shows the T-90S tanks of the Uganda People's Defense Force. This is the first known published photo of T-90S tanks in Uganda.

    Also in the picture are T-72B tanks and Chinese tanks of type 85-IIM. The receipt of Uganda-type tanks 85-IIM had not previously been reported.



    Recall that in 2011 Uganda received 44 T-90S tanks produced by NPK Uralvagonzavod under the contract with an estimated cost of 119 million dollars, concluded with Rosoboronexport JSC in the total package for the acquisition of Uganda by Russian armament in the amount of 740 million dollars in Beginning of 2010. 44 T-90S tanks delivered in 2011 entered service with the tank battalion of the brigade of the Ugandan presidential guard (since 2013 - the Command of Special Operations Forces), while the supply of T-90S tanks to Uganda itself was hiding by both sides, and the images of these tanks in Uganda has not yet appeared in public access.

    In 2016, Uganda also received from Russia an unknown quantity (up to 60 units) of T-72B tanks from the availability of contracts for the purchase of Russian weapons, concluded in 2015, under the latest package.
