Canada plans to equip the Ukrainian army with new machine guns

53
Canadian corporation Colt Canada from Ontario intends to conclude a deal, according to which the APU will receive 100 thousands of new machines, betrays InoTV Post National Post newspaper.




In early January, representatives of the company held a “preliminary meeting” with Ukrainian officials.

I think that it will be necessary to go a long way to say that Colt Canada has any chance in Ukraine. We have the same chances as the others, but I think that we have to go through a long process with regard to the Ukrainian side and their search for the best. weapons at the best price
said Colt Canada manager Alex Payne.

The publication reminds that in December last year, the Government of Canada amended the law on the export of weapons, allowing to sell machines and other small arms to Ukraine.

According to Paine, the company plans to demonstrate its weapons in Ukraine this summer.

We have a great product and a great reputation. Therefore, we have the same good odds as others
he noted.

Ukraine is also interested in other support from Canada. In late September, Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak told reporters that he “talked with his Canadian counterpart, Harjit Sajjan, about Canada’s participation in the construction of an ammunition manufacturing plant in Ukraine.”

          “Eggs are not eggs, but will our army have to meet such machine gunners?” So it is better to discuss TTD than Ukrainians smirk.

          All "partners" participate in this performance, arm, so that later they would enjoy how the Russians wet the Russians .. The longer we mumble, the better the enemy will be prepared and the bloodier the clash .. When the Crimea was liberated, we had to go further and there would be no enemy now in the person of Ukraine .. At least the DNI and LC should be recognized as a state.

        The first wave of immigration, it lasted from 1 until the start of World War I, until 1871. And for that period of time about 1914 thousand Ukrainians legally moved to the country.
        Is it exactly Bandera?
        The next stage of immigration lasted until 1930.
        The same "Bandera" laughing
        The next wave is from 1972 to the 90s.
        Well, this is exactly the “Bandera” with an amnesty already laughing I’ll run to Canada anyway
        Given that this immigration was very often associated with the fact that people left the former Union, a rather serious stronghold was formed here from immigrants who spoke out and continue to speak out against the policies of the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation.
        And we have firmly learned - if someone against the Russian Federation from the Ukrainians, well, he’s surely “Banderavets” which he did not see. Well, an ordinary Ukrainian cannot be against the policy of the Russian Federation laughing

          They are, in principle, against Russia, that is, Muscovites. And they are happy to scream that Bandera is their HER-oh, because he led the fight "Svidomo" against Russia and not only. So, do not "la-la", dear. Maybe at first they weren’t "Bandera", but then they became.

    concerns the Ukrainian side and their quest for better weapons at the best price
    As I understand it, Ukraine decided to completely abandon the most unpretentious and one of the best types of small arms - AK. What can’t you do to please a foreign uncle? So let them continue to slander around the world with outstretched hands fighting for each hryvnia in price. And of course, the blue dream is its cartridge factory (candle-lit, as in the classics) according to NATO standards.

      Russia then exchanges old AK modifications for new automatic weapons. Why would it be the most unpretentious and also one of the best types of small arms? Or maybe Russia will sell Ukraine new AK modifications, and at a price much lower than that of overseas competitors? quantities? No? Well then I don’t understand the essence of your post. And your production of cartridges is necessary, so it will be.

    There is one problem for the Canadians. Maydaunopitek wants to get for free and more. They were already fighting in ecstatic ecstasy when the Canadians gave the green light to the supply of weapons to urine. They performed ritual dances, they jumped a military hopak. But! It turned out that happiness is not free. You have to pay. And the enthusiasm of the patreots at once disappeared with interest in the Canadian zbroe. Now what? Again for the greens? Well then you can talk for a long time, tediously and talk-talk-talk, drooling and holding out a pen.

    with small arms there are fewer problems than with artillery and precision.
    Although competition may allow you to find the best option.
    In general, it would be better if they built a plant. Ammunition is needed.
    The option that Colt Canada wants to penetrate the Ukrainian market and grab a piece is quite likely.

      This is still a motley urcoarmia armed with Kalash, and how the "well-wishers" of the trunks will bring, then there will be problems with small arms as well. the army will become not only “motley”, but also “diverse”. They are tortured to disassemble assorted cartridges.

    In addition to cutting dough and populist statements, this deal is not explained in any way. Why would a rapidly impoverished country purchase alternative weapons? And this despite the fact that they inherited from the USSR such stocks of small arms that the United States can arm more than one generation of barmalei with them, and at the same time they will be enough for Svidomo.

      Of course, in terms of reliability, the Canadian assault rifle is no match for our AK, but compared to Western models, it’s even nothing. He fought in almost all modern NATO wars. By the way, about the reliability of the Canadian model - it turned out to be more reliable than the much-praised SIG, which some paper "experts" equate in reliability to AK.

    The point of all these arms deliveries is in one thing, to make the Ukrainians believe in invincibility and move them forward to Russia ... Somehow it is necessary to reduce the population of Ukropia. Current Wars are not waged by the weapons that they all promise. They would give them stone axes with "electronic" filling.
