Apparently, much hot. Algeria armed with Russian TOC-XNUMHA

19
The sale of the TON-1A “Solntsepek” heavy flame-thrower systems to the Armed Forces of Algeria was officially confirmed: one of these 12 systems in May was shown in a video report of Algerian television about military exercises, reports TSAMTO with reference to Jane's Defense Weekly


Apparently, much hot. Algeria armed with Russian TOC-XNUMHA


The system was demonstrated during live-fire exercises held in the 4th military district in the presence of the Chief of the General Staff of the National People's Army of Algeria, Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid-Salah. Judging by the published materials, a heavy flamethrower for Algeria is made on a chassis tank T-90S, which is currently the backbone of the tank forces of this country.

Thus, Algeria became the fifth known export customer for TOS-1A after Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq and Kazakhstan. According to military experts, the military-political leadership of Algeria had a desire to acquire such equipment after its use in Iraq. "Solntsepeki" demonstrated very high efficiency, making a significant contribution to the defeat of the terrorist group "IS" banned in Russia.

      In that region, wherever you want and how horrible everything can be expected, but with the efforts of the United States and others like it, now everything is waiting for everyone everywhere. I think the following penguins in the Arctic will buy S-400 too ...

          belay Generally there is plenty of oil and gas in this country! fellow Algeria holds the 8th place in the world in gas reserves and the 4th place in the world in gas exports. Algeria ranks 15th in the world in terms of oil reserves and 11th place in its exports.
          In general, Algeria is the most balanced and promising country in the Arab world. Algeria occupies the area first place not only among the Arab countries, but also in Africa. To match the population - over 40 million people (second only to Egypt among Arab countries). And in order to maintain its significant sovereignty and stability, this country needs a lot of weapons! fellow This is to the question:
          ..... and who is Algeria going to bake with this?

      Local baboons. Neighboring Morocco. Babakhs who can trample to the oil areas of Mali and Niger (where the concentration of Babahs is quite large). Babakhov from Libya - if you get tired of killing each other and they switch to other countries.

      In general, a wagon targets.

        Interestingly, at least someone could tell these babahs what it was like when the Sunshine wailed in Iraq and Syria?

        after its application in Iraq. "Sunshine" have shown very high efficiency

        There is efficiency - cracklings.

      The fact is that such systems, in addition to the direct “cover”, protect with one of their presence, the enemy will think once again before poking into a country in which TOS are armed.

    . If I’m not mistaken, then they are also in service with CAA.

    Interest in military equipment (mainly) appears after its use in combat conditions and the visibility of its effectiveness.

      Well, Algeria buys weapons long before all these Arab riots. Actually, the secret is that Bouteflika survived his Maidan calmly, drove the Opposition leaders to the Sahara by appointing the local Susanin as a conductor (they wander around there somewhere) and did not do anything to him, even the Sanctions were not introduced. And Kadafka (from whom the sanctions were lifted at about the time when Algeria was finally able to establish the economy and began to purchase weapons normally) - they finished off the bayonet with a knife - that Buteflika managed to skimp, and Kadafka only started asking the price.

      Now Bouteflika has problems only with the USA - and old age. And if the first he ignores. That second is not. It is not clear what will happen when he dies (and this is a matter of the coming years).

        Weapons have never been superfluous. And with old age, with the availability of money, modern gerontology fights quite well. Algeria has long begun to become the leading military force in the region. And their ruler, I hope, has taken care of the successor, only this can he ensure for his country a normal development without development.

    Unique weapon. It is probably appropriate to say that it has no taxes in the world.

    Wise ruler. They have a Black Hole, some remnants of a fleet of Zelenodol production. Dryers ordered and helicopters. The tradition, however ...
