      Will they pull the money?

      It seems they should:
      Romania is one of the leaders in the growth of the military budget, conscientiously fulfilling the call of American President Donald Trump to the European allies to finally reach the levels of spending on defense that are recommended for NATO.

      In a year, raising military spending from one and a half to two percent of GDP, Bucharest came in second in Eastern Europe in terms of military budget, bypassing Greece and spending more than the Czech Republic and Hungary combined (but still three times less than the undisputed leader - Poland).
      Additional funds are actively spent on the purchase of weapons, mainly from the chief overlord. "Eurasia. Expert ”has already talked about, perhaps, the most popular program - the purchase of used F-16 fighters. Deliveries of fighters under the first contract for a dozen units are ongoing, and another two dozen are expected to be purchased.
      Now two other priority rearmament programs have entered the active phase, implying a qualitative strengthening of the country's air defense and the shock capabilities of the army. Since this time we are talking about the purchase of new equipment directly to the United States (F-16 arrived in a complex way - former Portuguese fighters, but with an overhaul and modernization in the USA), the Military Cooperation Agency has traditionally been the chief friend of military export specialists U.S. Department of Defense (DSCA). It publishes on its website a detailed description and an approximate cost of the weapons purchased, along with a formal conclusion that this deal does not harm US interests. Such publications do not mean that the contract has already been signed (sometimes transactions are completely broken), but, as a rule, they signal that negotiations are at the final stage.
      In early July, DSCA thus announced the planned sale of seven batteries of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to Romania for an estimated $ 3,9 billion.
      Along with anti-missile missiles, Romania also buys the one for whose interception they are intended - the HIMARS universal missile system. A notice on the sale of 54 launchers, related equipment and missiles for an estimated $ 1,25 billion was issued on August 18. Both transactions, by the way, have already received formal approval from the State Department. http://eurasia.expert/bukharest-zakupaet-rakety-o

    So it's time for us Russians to surrender, if the camp went against us, (excuse me) Romania. Laugh, do not laugh, but the Romanians are the strongest army, with Hitler reached the Volga, and with Stalin reached Berlin

    For a couple of mechanized brigades. Pretty well. But in general, who knows how many Romanian readiness troops should provide for the Allied Command?

        For extras and as cannon fodder, Romanians will also go. In case of war, the slaughterers will be shaved with the Germans, and the American divisions are my opinion, and everyone else is dancing.

        During the First World War, coalition members often hid behind each other. The French were especially famous. The Russians had to protect them from the Germans with their bodies.
        Since now there are much more trifles like Romania, the Czech Republic and other fleas, NATO seems to have 28 such "allies" in NATO, there will be more cases of desertion. Desertions are not of individual soldiers, but of countries. A good decision-making system in NATO is ALL participants.

      According to NATO’s charter, this amount varies from “not at all” to “the whole army in general”.
      “The Contracting Parties agree that an armed attack on one or more of them in Europe or North America will be considered as an attack on them as a whole, and therefore agree that if such an armed attack takes place, each of which, in the exercise of the right to individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, it will provide assistance to a Contracting Party subjected to, or to Contracting Parties subjected to a similar attack, by the immediate implementation of such an individual or joint action, which it considers necessaryincluding the use of armed force to restore and subsequently maintain the security of the North Atlantic region. ”

      There was once an article on VO about the army of Romania. It seems Khramchikhin wrote. Take a look at the archive.

    Apparently the Romanians finally despaired of independently creating a replacement for their TAV-77, which they have been doing since the times of the USSR on the basis of our BTR-70 lol

        Such modernized BMPs are written not so much, even 200 does not reach it.
        And the anti-tank systems there are exactly the third generation?
        Previously, they put the Baby version.
        And here is this below in the photo what do they have?

          In principle, there are 2 brigades.
          This is an Elbit module with Spike-ER.

    Most likely I read a little now that part of the BMP was armed with the ATGM Spike and part of the ATGM was Baby.

      99 units MLI-84 from the original 184's have been brought up to the MLI-84M standard
      in 2005. Everything was planned. Taking into account the relations between Israel and Romania, the Romanians will also receive the "Spikes" of the fourth generation - Spike-LR2. Back in 1998, they selected the RAFAEL 25 mm module (OWS-25) folding "back" in the stowed position.

          For almost 20 years, they have not completely switched to "Spikes", all the more so for NATO organized their production in Europe? I don’t know, to be honest. But Israeli guidance systems of 3-4 generations are not related to previous generations of ATGMs.

    The question is, whose money is credited Romania suddenly began to produce military equipment in favor of the country's armed forces. Taking into account the budget and full subordination of the United States, we can safely say that the new regime is no better than the Ceausescu regime. There is a difference, but the juice will be squeezed out of the Romanians, and not from the Americans, to buy this weapon!
