    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.

    Iraqi 35th Brigade is rearmed from M1A1M Abrams tanks to Russian tanks T-90S russia

    As the Ministry of Defense of Iraq reported on June 5, 2018, the 35th Brigade of the 9th Armored Division of the Iraqi Army is rearmed from the American M1A1M Abrams tanks to the T-90S tanks received from Russia. To date, the 35th Brigade has received 39 T-90S / SK tanks delivered from Russia, which are distributed between the two tank regiments (3rd and 4th) of the brigade. It is stated that the officers and rank and file of the 35th brigade were trained for T-90S tanks with the participation of Russian instructors. In turn, the Abrams tanks remaining in the 35th brigade were transferred to the 34th Brigade of the same 9th Armored Division, which is now apparently the only brigade of the Iraqi army equipped with Abrams tanks (includes two tank regiments - the 1st and 2nd).

    Why, because the T-90S is better or they just don't want to be dependent on the US anymore?

    35th Bde - T90-SI
    36th Bde - M1A1
    37th Bde - for now BMP-1s but I think this is earmarked for BMP-3M

    The Iraqi media reported on the purchase of 50 Belarusian ATGM "Shershen". The contract is concluded with CJSC ZNIP (Minsk, Smolenskaya str., 15a), which is the only authorized developer and manufacturer of anti-tank guided missile systems on the territory of the Republic of Belarus.

    The first shipment of BMP-3 was delivered to Iraq

    The photographs from Iraq show that the first batch of infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3 of Russian production for the land forces of Iraq was finally delivered to this country.

     Iraqi Army - Page 12 5830046_original

    On the bmpd side, we point out that the contract for Iraq's acquisition of BMP-3 was signed as early as 2014, but its implementation was delayed due to various problems. According to some sources, up to 500 BMP-3 should be delivered to Iraq. Previously, erroneous reports of Iraq getting the first shipment of infantry fighting vehicles appeared in February 2018.

    Iraqi Army receives new batch of Russian T-90 tanks


    BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 P.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces have reportedly received a new batch of T-90 tanks from the Russian military, Iraqi News reported on Wednesday.

    Citing the commander of the 9th Armored Division’s commander Major General Walid Khalifa’s interview with the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA) on Tuesday, Iraqi News reported that the Iraqi Ministry of Defense received their fourth batch of Russian-made T-90 tanks.

    The Iraqi military will begin using the tanks once they complete training, the Iraqi News report added.

    Iraq first agreed to receive the T-90 tank in 2017 after seeing the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) success on the battlefield.

    Speaking to Sputnik, Russian military expert Viktor Murakhovsky recalled that “the conditions of Iraq and Syria are desert and semi-desert areas and a long range of open spaces.”

    “The T-90 is already successfully using guided missiles launched through the barrel; in this regard, a high-precision missile with a range of up to five kilometers can be described as a sort of [the T-90’s] ‘high-precision hand’,” Murakhovsky said.

    The Iraqi Armed Forces now have a have a large number of battle ready T-90 tanks in their arsenal.

    There's been so many articles on Iraq looking to buy s-400, s-300, buk-m3, tor-m2 it's actually confusing as to what they actually want because Iraq doesn't have massive budget but there was talk of Russia giving credit for purchases. What people's views on what likely to be bought if any.

    Support launchers "Dzhigit" and MANPADS 9K338 "Igla-S" in service with the Iraqi army

    In 2014, Iraq received Russian modern air defense systems. Among the incoming weapons were the Panzir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and gun systems acquired in Russia, Igla-S MANPADS with the 1PN97M "Mowgli-2M" thermal imaging sight and Dzhigit support and launchers.

    That image of the four vehicles with the twin missile launchers on the back travelling in convoy are interesting... the missile operators are very exposed... but they are all also facing forward... you would think at least the last one would be facing backwards...

    I would think even just camouflage or environmental protection from the wind and sun if not armour would be a useful addition... even just fibreglass sheets to cut the wind on the move and the sunlight to prevent overheating could be achieved without adding a lot of weight or obscuring the operators view...
