Russian T-90SI become a symbol of the armored power of the Armed Forces of Iraq


Judging from published materials that regularly appear on the Web, Russian military vehicles are of considerable interest to both Iraqi military personnel and military experts and ordinary people.

“This is not surprising, the Iraqi army bought one of the most advanced versions of the“ nineties ”. New tanks are better than those that are in service with the Indian, Algerian, Russian and other armies. Only T-90MS is better, ”the author Dmitry Lemeshko notes.

According to him, there was a time when the Iraqi command expressed dissatisfaction with the T-series vehicles. However, having become more familiar with the American "Abrams", they realized that this technique is not perfect. Especially as the earliest versions of the overseas car, with the worst characteristics, were delivered to the country. Moreover, the low qualifications of Iraqi tankers prevented their effective use.



In the end, it was decided to purchase T-90C in a special Iraqi version, with air conditioning and new side screens with enhanced protection characteristics.

At the present time, servicemen have begun an intensive development of equipment, which should soon be involved in tank maneuver exercises.

      I am sure that the purchases of our various air defense systems after demonstrating their capabilities will increase significantly.

    It’s scary that if the valiant guys from Iraq didn’t throw barmales at the sight of a martyr, these tanks too.

    The Israelis are already rubbing their hands, through the affiliated organization "Isis Terrorist", they want to get a car to study! And taking into account which Iraqis are warriors, they and “Almaty” will be serviceable on the battlefield! Purely my opinion, in vain we sold them to Iraqis! !!

      Why does someone still not know about t90? If it has been supplied for import for many years. Type of Jewish spies can not see everything in India?

        Modification of the modification is different, there is clearly something that we can’t deliver to India, because there is such a magic word as a contract, which clearly, point by point stipulates what exactly will go on a particular version of the tank in a certain configuration! For the Iraqis, they made the “ten in one” option, no one else has such machines in the world! So there really is something to see, Kars! !! soldier Greetings to a rare visitor to the site! !! hi good

          I do not think that in the Iraqi version there is something particularly secret. The air conditioning is hardly a secret thing.
          Yes, I do not seem to be very rare)) I try to regularly celebrate)

        Will we sell it? We also have a concept for whom and what can be sold! The Israelis did not sell us their chariot, although ours tried to buy it, and it seemed to be official. But the Germans and the USA were against it, because there is a lot of theirs, that’s why not one country in the world will sell their tank, which is now in service, the USA will not be allowed! And why then will we have to meet someone? ??

          Yes, we will sell it to anyone if they promise money even on credit at our expense. We are selling to such cool guys in Saudi Arabia, or to friends of the Turks who shot down our plane, and we were ...

          I think there are no concepts, we sell to everyone who asks (NATO, Saudis, Iraqis, Chinese, USA) - the loot does not "smell"! )), and at the expense of Iraq - the shtatovtsy in this country can get acquainted with any of our equipment or just take the "drive" - ​​for free))

    The technique is good, no words! But the Iraqi tankmen ... In the "skillful" hands of any equipment - a lot of scrap metal!

    the tank needs a crew, then this is a combat unit ... in other cases - money and lives "down the drain" with any modification

    I think in Iraq the Russian Federation has found a reliable arms sales market, and in the future air defense / missile defense systems will be supplied. I am sure of this.
