    Also SAA not only getting old Russian hand me downs

    Actually that's Vystrel armoured transport and it is old Russian hand me down

    Russian Army has been trying to offload them in favor of something better (like Typhoons) for a while because they didn't really pass the mustard

    But it's still pretty damn good all things considered, SAA should find them very useful

    A lot of them already ended up in Donbass with NAF



    If they didn't pass the mustard then they wouldn't of been in the Strategic Forces. Reality is that it's capable for being cheap, that's why they used them to protect Topol-M's, they bought a cheap and capable carrier so they can base a very capable (and expensive) anti-IED/Mine complex on top of it. The vystrel is cheap, but they wanted something more capable and a little more expensive (Typhoons) so they're placing them with that.

    No, it is a Russian model that other designs have proven to be better and more useful.

    Here they come after their long trip, unusually not many of the crew on deck. Fresh ships for the Syrian Express perhaps?

    All four of those ships are now into the Black Sea.

    Meanwhile it looks like a deal is done on the protection of the 'Iran Express' where oil and other supply ships will be protected in a convoy by Iranian Navy ships all the was up the Red Sea to the Suez Canal and then when they reach the Med by the Russian Navy. By implication this has already happened with the tankers that arrived last week.
