And at the end of 2017, the FSMTC was told that "the contract is being implemented in accordance with the schedule approved by the parties (Russia and Iraq)."

In early February of this year, Russia's ambassador to Iraq, Maxim Maximov, said that "the first T-90С tanks in the number of 46 units" will soon be delivered to Iraq. Machines began to arrive in the country in the middle of the same month.

    The Iraqis didn’t take root as the Iraqis did not dance with them. It’s expensive to fight them.

          The curtain is there, only there are no IR spotlights, and since the sensors for detecting laser radiation are standing, they can be seen in the photo.

        T-90S - T-90 variant for export. This modification is deprived of the OTShU Curtain floodlights, their place was taken by additional blocks of built-in dynamic protection
        T-90SK - Commander version of the T-90S. Additional navigation and communications equipment installed.
        “In this case, we can talk about the delivery of several hundred cars, and the contract amount can exceed $ 1 billion. This order is a great help for Uralvagonzavod. In addition, this contract is a serious foreign policy success for Russia. After all, the Americans fought in Iraq, and the Iraqi military ultimately chose the Russian tank, ”Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, quotes the publication.
