    Russia's T-90 makes inroads in Middle East market
    Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

    An annual report released by Russian tank manufacturer UralVagonZavod (UVZ) revealed a series of T-90 deals with Middle East countries.

    The report was published on the UVZ website, but later removed after Russian defence analysts revealed the customers it identified using code numbers.

    According to these analysts, the report stated that UVZ is planning to implement orders that Iraq and Vietnam have placed respectively for 73 and 64 T-90S/SK tanks, to finalise Kuwait's order for 146 T-90MS/MSK tanks, and work to secure an Indian order for 356 T-90MS tanks.

    The T-90S is the basic export model, the T-90MS (also known as the T-90SM) is a more advanced export version, and the 'K' postfix is a reference to command versions.

    UVZ will also work on a project to establish a facility to license assemble T-90S/SKs in Egypt and another to establish repair facilities for the T-90S/SKs already delivered to Algeria.

    The T-90 has previously struggled to find customers in the Middle East, although Russia has supplied a small number to the Syria Arab Army or allied pro-government militia.
