Russia has prepared a contract for the supply of C-400 to Saudi Arabia


Earlier it was reported that Rosoboronexport and the Saudi company (SAMI) signed a contract to localize the production of AK-103 assault rifles, and also "reached agreements on the supply of C-400 anti-aircraft systems, Cornet-EM anti-tank systems and other weapons."

It will depend on them, our contract is ready. They must make a decision. Negotiations have already ended, it is necessary that the contracts entered into force. When their decision is made on the entry into force, it means there will be a supply,
said Chemezov, answering the question about the timing of deliveries.

He also clarified that the contract does not provide for the transfer of Triumph’s production technologies to the Saudis.

Not yet,
said the general director.

S-400 - long-range anti-aircraft missile system. It is designed to destroy aviation, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium range.

    The Yankees are rubbing their hands pretty much, and forging equipment in special flats, to study our military equipment!

        But I don’t believe it - all this is a game. The "contract" will last indefinitely ...

          As if our "dryers" do not run into our own "eski" ...
          Something I no longer understand the policy of Rosoboronexport - to sell the latest models to "partners" in potential conflicts.
          So for a short while and "Topol" trade will begin.

              Turkey already gives hints that it may refuse a contract for the purchase of S-400
              The Saudis need this technique, too, except for study, they buy their counterpart from the United States.
              So do not ours to prepare in advance. Here the money will come, then it will be possible to prepare the complexes. Not earlier.

            I cease to understand the policy of Rosoboronexport-
            Actually, there is a genius in foreign policy. Or is there nothing to do with it again?

          iConst, the judges once “overturned” the contract for 20bn. (I don’t remember exactly), Medvedev refused Iran to supply the S-300 because of this. If this time they behave this way, then who will believe them in the future? Moreover, then the Russian Federation did not play any role in the region, and the Saudis forwarded. But now the situation is just the opposite. Moscow plays a key role and through its actions has shown the effectiveness of its weapons. The SA will now be more expensive to overturn the Kremlin. There are simply no other mediators for negotiations with the gaining authority and influence of Iran. hi
          I'm afraid that the Saudis will have to fork out for the American and Russian systems. Yesterday, Russia24 saw an interview with the former head of Pakistani intelligence. "... the Saudi royal family is now in a big panic ..."

            The Saudis are concerned not only with the growing role of Iran in the region, with which they have already bitten more than once, but with the growing role of Russia in solving Middle Eastern problems, which they, like the United States, have written off in the 90s. The Saudis simply saw another, more effective force, capable of changing the alignment in the region in a couple of years. They have no reason for the fact that relations between Iran and Russia will develop without taking into account the interests of the SA, and therefore they will try to find a place on the mound, so that they can be on the mound at least one buttock, but side by side. Moreover, it is Russia and China that are gradually "shaking" the authority of the hegemon and the financial system that has been in place since the 70s and can really crush the dollar. China opens its RMB oil exchange, and Russia is one of its largest producers. If today we don’t make rapprochement with those who can bury “petrodollar” tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow we can be late.

        Why study it, they have plenty of airbases in the region there. Unroll the complex, cut it and train.

      The question is, why should they buy in two places? Turkey and CA. If they just need them for disassembly.

      Well, in the first place the deliveries will not be soon, for the turn.
      secondly, truncated versions are exported.
      thirdly, when the supplies go, the Saudis may well be with the mattresses in the counter.
      for the purchase of weapons from Russia is more a political move.

      They tormented themselves with C-300 and did not solve all the puzzles, and here even if they are given (given access) to the export version of C-400 they will understand that the Cherkassko saddle does not fit the cow. Our technologies by that time will step forward and do not forget that this is an export (!) Version of C-400 Triumph. With shrunken / cut-down characteristics and probably with the ability to block the launch of our aircraft. This is not a fact, but perhaps a correct assumption.

    Somehow dumb. Something famously began to be scattered C-400 left and right, and C-500 was still somewhere on the way.

      Well, let's salt them. We have the production of excellent weapons. And there are buyers who want to acquire these weapons. So why not sell it all the more in the export version and make big money on it. Bind the buyer to our defense industry. Moreover, we will not sell, we will sell others (Yankees or geyropovtsy ..) Some of this money will probably remain with the manufacturer of the equipment (in this case, Almaz-Antey) and will be aimed at improving the characteristics of existing samples and creating new ones. So it was before and it will be so in the future. Moreover, deliveries will not be today, but in a few years when our air defense will be saturated with this complex (we recall what the president said).
      So stop screaming that everything was lost and everyone was surrendered.

    Don’t worry: even without the Saudis, they could find sources to get acquainted with the news of interest to them. Under the Union, they received all the news of the Warsaw Pact through Romania, and then 494 appeared, and now, I am whispering to the sofa whether the search for a supplier is underway or has already ended.

    I am sure that this is a political move. They will buy S-400 only with technologies, as in the pattern with the Turks. They also shouted buy! And how to shell out, so give technology.
    But there wouldn’t be a disaster like with ukroinsky Bukami, a passenger was shot down, and they’ll bring down Russia. For what dirty tricks do they want to buy?

    This is to be expected. Americans roll the barrel on the Saudis, so a new "partner" is needed. And those bam - Russia is right there.
