    and maybe Iran? which is waiting for S-300?

    It makes more sense to give S-300's to Iran, as Iraq's govt. at this point is too weak as it is.

    Iraq already has all the Pantsir S1 that they ordered from Iraq. S300 would be perfect fit there.

    I am not saying S-300 is not needed in Iraq but no news about official contract yet...I hope both Iraq /Iran will be saturated with good AAD to keep aggressors with missile democracy at bay.

    iraqi defence committee reported in 2013 that the weapons contract with russia included strategic missile systems worth $210M each. that was nearly 3 years ago.

    This is a small question to our experts here.

    There is a discussion over whether iraq Operated the tochka missile in the past. And this picture has emerged of a Republic a guard tochka launcher....
    http://iraqimilitary.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50&start=30

    Can the experts verify that this is a tochka launcher in Iraq and not a romb transloader. (see the angled in roof).

    I can't claim to be an expert, but it sure looks to me very similar if not identical to the 9P129. I'm reading that the Tochka was first  exported (and quite widely) in the 1980s, so it is entirely plausible Iraq received a number of them before 1991, maybe even after (clandestinely). Perhaps looking through the SIPRI files would give an idea, i have some printed stuff to have a look at when i get to it.

    Meanwhile, some reference material on these and associated BAZ models.

    thing is in the 1980s iraqis had their own "domestic" program for the same sorts of rocket (laith 90, ababel 100, al samoud, raad)... it has never been noted in service in iraq by anyone, never been paraded...

    it seems that this could have been a small "evaluation" purchase by iraqis... but that seems to have gotten as far as joining an operational unit.

    i will paste the pics over here.


    this really does look like a BAZ-5921... so not for the ROMB SAM system. confirming that Iraq had Tochka SSMs in the past!?

    so it seems this launcher and missiles were obtained by iraq from yemen in the 1990s and helped to develop iraq's domestic short range al samoud missiles.

    It's tochka and probably one of the Soviet largesses to PDRY

    Lots of these things went under the radar during the Soviet retreat from the PDRY.

    Edit: I just saw your last post...repost then.

    Western instructors teach Iraqi military to shoot from Iranian and Russian sniper rifles

    Of course not unusual, given that Iran and our rifle is now probably one of the most common in the Iraqi military, but it still looks pretty funny.

    The parade in Baghdad in honor of the Day of the Republic July 14

    Recall that on July 14, 1958 troops under General Abd al-Karim Qasim and Colonel Abdul Salam Aref took control of Baghdad. The royal family of the genus Hashemite led by the young King Faisal II was executed by military rebels at the walls of the Royal Palace. Thus in Iraq the monarchy was overthrown and proclaimed a republic.

    The parade, which took place today in Baghdad attended by Iraqi army divisions, the federal police and the various units of the national militia forces.

    The Iraqi Airforce now has 10 of the 36 F-16 they have on order.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Iraqi military received an additional four F-16 fighter jets over the weekend, US Presidential Envoy for the global coalition to counter Daesh Brett McGurk said on Monday.

    The Iraqi army is far more competent than SAA. Much better equipped. SAA has no modern gear and Russia refuses to supply any. Not even 1980s artillery.

    Better equipped yes but not a lot of heavy equipment, less than 200 tanks whilst the Syrian army started with 5000 or so.

    Restoration of the old equipment and weapons in Iraq. In Basra, Iraq's continuing restoration of old weapons of the Iraqi army that after the occupation of Iraq by US troops were transported to a giant dump \ repository Base in Taji area.
    Chieftain tanks, IFV AMX-10P, 155-mm artiller GHN-45, etc., but that's got a very rare example - towed 152 mm artillery gun Chinese Type 83.
    Iraq was the only foreign customer, and in China they are only a limited number of entered service some units and artillery used during local fighting on the border of China and Vietnam in the mid-1980s.

    According to Iraqi media, Iraq received ten infantry fighting vehicles BMP-1 from Bulgaria. Earlier in December 2015, the Iraqi Ministry of Defence announced the receipt from Bulgaria several T-72 tanks and 12 BMP-1.

    just a small correction.

    Iraq bought 280 BMP-1 and 60 T72s from Bulgaria. And in addition to these Bulgaria donated 10 BMP-1s to Iraq.

    We need to place an order for some SU-30SM squadrons, all these delays will leave us with a dangerous gap. The coalition will leave our airspace one day.
