    "Nigeria had reportedly taken delivery of two Mi-24 ‘Super Hind’ helicopters from Ukraine. The Super Hind is a comprehensive upgrade package for older Mi-24s, created by Advanced Technologies and Engineering (now part of the Paramount Group as their Advanced Technologies division) of South Africa in partnership with the Ukrainian State Enterprise “Konotop Aircraft Repair Plant “AVIAKON”. In 1999-2004, Konotop factory upgraded to the Algerian Air Force variant in Super Hind Mk III 33 former Ukrainian Mi-24V, and in 2010-2011 – for the Air Force of Azerbaijan in Super Hind Mk IV 12 former Ukrainian Mi-24K (modernized Azerbaijani helicopters received the designation Mi-24G). Super Hinds are built around core digital systems which integrate flight, sensor and combat systems together. Sensors aboard the Super Hind include a FLIR Pod and TV camera. Sensor data is displayed on tv screens. The Super Hind cockpit is night vision goggle-compatible and features a day/night electro-optical HUD. Doppler GPS enables accurate navigation."

    Maybe she was a gift to the S.African guy in the second pic. Ukraine is known for being the Bride basket of the world.  With her foot going up behind her, I figure she is telling the camera man she is the "kickback".

    These are Algerians, not Nigerians. Jane's has already made the mistake a few months ago.

    "Nigerian used «Shershen-D» Belarusian third generation anti-tank guided missiles. The «Shershen» (English: Hornet) is a Belarusian third generation anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) that is designed to defeat modern armored vehicles, protected objects (such as bunkers, pillboxes, earth-and-timber emplacements) and low-speed low-altitude targets (helicopters, UAVs). Being a logical extension of the ATGM “Skif”, “Shershen” beats it in technologies level, as well as implements engineering solutions that are unique among the others.

    All modern armored targets can be destroyed, irrespective of where the missile hits them, using the РК-2 (cal. 130 mm) and Р-2M (cal. 152 mm) guided missiles. The Р-2В missile (can be used with “Shershen-Q” and unificated with ATGM “Barier-B” ) extends the maximum range to 7,500m. The ability to use different types of missiles without any system modification, in addition to a wide spectrum of targets makes it possible to consider this system not only as an ATGM, but as a mobile defence-assault fire system for infantry support up to battalion level."

    Ministry of Defense of Nigeria receives armored cars Typhoon and Spartan

    As reported on June 2, 2017 by the Nigerian Ports Authority, the first shipment of 25 177 armored vehicles ordered by the Ministry of Defense of Nigeria was delivered to the port of Tin Cagn in Lagos. The party in the port was accepted and inspected by the Minister of Defense of Nigeria

    Judging by the picture, armored cars Typhoon and Spartan produced by the Canadian-Emirate group Streit Group were delivered to Nigeria. It is reported that the cars were manufactured in the UAE (apparently at the main enterprise Streit Group Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Manufacturing Facility in Ras Al Khaimah). Both types of cars are already operated in some numbers by the Nigerian army, and Spartan - since 2011 are used by the police of Nigeria.
