I've heard some rumors...apparently we will soon receive at least 2 more Pantsir S1 and 3 FK-3 batteries, maybe some before the end of this year.
I don't know about truthfulness of these rumors, though...
Well I certainly hope so because current number can only be described as starter package
As for FK-3 I didn't know we even received the first ones, did we? I didn't see any
Pretty much everything we bought lately could do another batch (Pantsirs, Eurocopters, Mi-8s, Mi-35s, etc...)
I know cops are getting 3 Super Pumas so they could stop mooching off military every time they need to move something bigger than a backpack around
Plus at some point we will have to buy something from Americans before they start getting their panties in a bunch but other than Red Hawks I can't figure out what, everything we could need from them we either make ourselves or Israelis make much better ones than USA...
Some C-130s maybe (do we even need those?)
I just don't know...
Actually, our government did a rebalance of MOD budget for additional 400 million of USD, for this year. That means we will buy weapons worth of more than 610 million USD, this year alone. MOD budget have risen to almost 1.4 billion USD, for 2021.
As I understood, they are talking about more MI-35M's (4-6 at least), maybe more H-145 and who knows what else.
There are even some rumors about buying French Ground Master radars...
Last 9 days more than 10 transport planes came from Russia and Belarus, with 2 MIG-29's, 20 BRDM-2M's and maybe 19 tanks T-72 BMS. Planes are still arriving, every day.
Also, our factories will make 24 LAZAR 3's, 20 MILOS-16's and 12 NORA B-52's for our army, this year.
FK-3 is still not here, it's supposed to arrive at the end of this or through the next year. Some government people are also talking about additional 2 Pantsir S1 batteries, maybe even 1 additional AN-26, but who knows what is the truth.
That's all I have found out.
