Russia and Iraq are preparing for the second stage of deliveries of Russian T-90С tanks

Russia has successfully implemented the first stage of deliveries of MBT T-90С to the armed forces of Iraq. The parties are negotiating the implementation of the second. This was announced by a representative of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) at the Dubai Airshow 2019 air show.


According to a representative of the Federal Customs Service, Russia has fully completed deliveries tanks T-90S as part of the first phase of the contract with the Iraqi Ministry of Defense. Currently, the parties are negotiating the terms of delivery of Russian armored vehicles in the second phase.

The property in the first stage is delivered in full. The procedure and conditions for the supply of armored vehicles in the second stage will be agreed additionally

- he said.

According to available information, Uralvagonzavod in 2016 concluded a basic contract for the supply of X-NUMX T-73С / СК tanks to Iraq with the start of deliveries in the 90 year. In July 2017, Iraqi media announced the signing of a contract with Russia worth 2017 billion dollars to supply a "large batch of Russian tanks." Later, the basic contract was expanded by the Iraqi side on the experience of successfully operating the first batches of MBT T-1С.

The first 36 T-90С / SK tanks were received by the Iraqi Armed Forces in February 2018, in June the second batch of 39 new tanks entered service with two battalions of the 2018 brigade of the 35 armored division. It is noted that earlier this formation was equipped with American Abrams M9A1 tanks, which, after receiving the T-1C, were transferred to the 90th brigade of the division, which almost did not participate in hostilities. Two more batches of Russian-made armored vehicles arrived in Iraq at the end of 34 and in April 2018.

Last June, US military experts expressed concerns about the possible loss of the Iraqi heavy armored vehicle market due to the fact that the Iraqi army preferred the Russian T-90s to the American Abrams.

        Curious news comes on the Sokol-V rocket.
        during the tests, it is planned to use 25 3UBK25 military missiles, as well as 46 practical missiles and 46 missiles with an inertial navigation system (SINS). Shooting will be carried out by the T-80 tank and a ballistic installation with the 2A82 system, which is also installed on the T-14 Armata tank.


        The blog reports that 3UBK25 is “Russia's first self-guidance missile with completely new combat qualities,” which “will lead Russian tanks to leading positions where it is possible to defeat enemy targets both in direct visibility and when shooting indirectly.”

        https://m.lenta.ru/news/2019/11/18/armata/

        To confirm the characteristics, several dozen missiles are used in various versions, including with a real warhead and homing head.
        In tests of such weapons, not only the main battle tanks T-80 and T-90 are involved, but also the "ballistic installation" with 2A82. This gun is installed on the promising "Object 148" -T-14 on the heavy unified platform "Armata".
        Military experts consider Sokol-V a real breakthrough in advanced technology. The missile has the ability to homing and gives Russian tanks a significant advantage over the armored vehicles of potential opponents.

      I beg you - this is Iraq. In the hands of the army there are any tanks in some ways do not make excuses - at least the T-72, at least the "abrams."
      Judging by the laudatory photos and videos of the terrorists, they seized the American technology of the Iraqi army almost directly in the boxes / storage areas.

    On the one hand, it’s good. On the other hand, the Arab “military” for any weapon is the most powerful anti-advertisement. As they say, give an alternative to the gifted glass genitals, he will break it.

    Iraq, these tanks come in handy.
    It is possible to recapture oil deposits from Iran on the border of two countries by the sea. There the population - Arabs, will support.

      Yeah ... right now, Iraq just does not have enough war with Iran for complete happiness. Given the fact that the territory of Iraq from the militants of a banned organization in the Russian Federation was cleaned by the IRGC and the "legitimate gangs" it controlled, because the Iraqi army could only surrender cities and its bases with terrorists along with weapons.
      Who would have told Saddam in 1980 that in 40 years Iran and its IRGC would fight with the Muslim fundamentalists in Iraq, helping the country's secular government ... laughing

    - Not far from the impoverished Iraq, Russia suddenly took and forgave billions of dollars in debt (also for once supplied weapons) ... -Who will argue that Iraq did not like such a "present" ...
    -"Down and Out trouble started"...
    -And so far, already under the “new deal” Russia has supplied Iraq with weapons ... for an amount not exceeding even 1/10 of the amount of debt that Russia so generously "forgave" Iraq ...
    -And who knows ...- how it will turn around further ... -Maybe Iraq has a great reason to hope for such a "deja vu" .. which Russia will again provide for it ...

      Far from the impoverished Iraq, Russia suddenly took and forgave


      Yes, they forgave me, but not all of a sudden, but there were conditions at that time.

      Of course, one can demand debt payment indefinitely, as it is now from Ukraine, without losing a penny and losing the sales market and the opportunity for Russian companies like Lukoil and Rosneft to work in Iraq, earn and pay taxes to the Russian budget.

      In 2018, Rosneft paid taxes on 4 trillion rubles (60 billion dollars), Lukoil on 1,5 trillion (20 billion dollars). It is clear that not all of this is due to Iraq, but nevertheless, its share is there.

      Russia will not forgive debts indefinitely, and Iraq has also gained tremendous experience in comparing Russian and American weapons in a combat situation, and I think the conclusions will be drawn correctly.

      When the Ishilovites went 80 km to Bogdad, only the supply of Russian equipment saved Iraq from losing the capital.

      Other countries will benefit from this experience.

      We only essentially learn to compete and trade on the international market, but make mistakes, gain experience, but move forward.

      Wow, it’s strange to forgive debts to a country (albeit made by the previous regime), which is on the oil fields and which sells its subsoil to a bunch of international companies. Soviet business in Russian, option 2.0?

        So the debt was just forgiven for preferences to our companies in access to Iraqi resources.

    Very good news.

    Iraq would still have to offer the T-90MS, you can even several pieces for trial operation, at the same time and check how it is in combat, we learn about the shortcomings.

    The best advertising that Iraq did to our tanks and not come up with.

      It seems to me that in Syria it has already been checked, enough, it turned out that the main drawback of such models is the inept and weakly character-driven Arabs.
