    Sat image shows more than 80 of the Iraqi Army's 140 M1A1 tanks at the 9th Armourd Division's Taji base, many of them seriously damaged.




    Id rather say they are canibalising some tanks to keep other tanks going. As they lost technical support from the manufacturer.

    par far

    Will the Iraq get a refund or half refund form Uncle Scum Bag for the tanks? Cause this has to suck for Iraq.

    i think that shows the main repair yard for the M1A1SA tanks.

    on the left side of the picture you can see about 16 tanks which have completed repairs.

    And in the right side, you can see about 40 tanks awaiting rework. There's 2 ARVs in that section too (can be seen from the shadows of their cranes). In addition I'd expect another 6-8 tanks inside the buildings undergoing rework.

    That tallies with the figure that the 9th AD has usually about 80-90 tanks "available" out of the 152 or so total.


    Iraq only recently bought completely new FLIR systems for all the Abrams tanks... with the "old" units supposedly going to upgrade the sights of some of the T72s. Maybe GD are unhappy with Iraq reusing the old Abrams sights on T72s?



    here's a ground level video from the same location after the completion of some vehicle repairs




    and here's another video with views inside the hangars

    Iraqi Defense Ministry receives T-90S tanks from Russia

    Iraq’s Defense Ministry has received the first batch of 36 T-90S tanks under an arms contract with Russia


    MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Iraq’s Defense Ministry has received the first batch of 36 T-90S tanks under an arms contract with Russia, Shafaq News reported on Monday, citing Chief of Staff of the Iraqi Army, Lieutenant-General Othman Al-Ghanmi.

    Al-Ghanmi, who paid an inspection visit to Basra, confirmed that the 36 Russian-made tanks had been delivered to Iraq. The rest 37 such tanks under the contract would reach Iraq by late April.

    Earlier, Arab media cited a source in the Iraqi defense ministry as saying that the T-90S tanks had been delivered to the port city of Umm Qasr on February 15 to be later transported by Baghdad.

    The T-90S is an export modification of the T-90 tank. It has powerful armaments, a modern fire control system, reliable armor and high maneuverability. It operates day and night in various climatic conditions and is designed to fight tanks, self-propelled guns and other armored objects.

    T-90S tanks in Iraq



    Recall that, as already reported by our blog, in the annual report of JSC Scientific-Production Corporation Uralvagonzavod for 2016 among the priority tasks for 2017 was the beginning of the implementation of the contract with the customer "368" [Iraq] for the delivery of the first batch of 73 In November 2017, the TASS agency reported with reference to the statement of the press service of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) of Russia that Russia is implementing a contract for the delivery of T-90S tanks to Iraq and that "the contract is being implemented in accordance with the approved parties to the schedule. "

    In early February 2018, a video recording of the loading in the port of Ust-Luga (Leningrad region) on a vessel of T-90S tanks appeared, judging by the coloration intended for Iraq. On February 8, Russia's ambassador to Iraq Maxim Maximov said that the first batch of T-90S tanks in the amount of 46 units will be "soon delivered to Iraq." Tanks began arriving in Iraq in mid-February 2018.

    the Baghdad based intelligence and operations coordination centre between Iraq, Iran, Russia and Syria.


    although its publicly acknowledged to exist by all, its operations are rather shadowy and shrouded in mist.

    There are rare points of actual operations (like Iraqi air force bombing a few km inside Syria) and coordinating Russian Air Force overflights... beyond that its remit is opaque.
