Islamabad announced the signing of a number of contracts for the supply of Russian weapons

Russia will supply Pakistan with a consignment of weapons, Moscow and Islamabad have signed a number of contracts in the defense sphere. This was announced by the Chief of Staff of the Pakistani Army, General Qamar Javed Bajwa.


According to the general, Russia will supply Pakistan with anti-tank systems, air defense systems and small arms weapon... The Pakistani general did not disclose the specific names of weapons, batch sizes and delivery dates. There is also no information when the agreements were signed, although Bajwa made a statement about the contracts during the AMAN-2021 international naval exercise, which ended last Tuesday. As you know, Russia was represented in the exercises by a detachment of ships from the Black Sea fleet.

According to the general, Russia is a "good friend" of Pakistan, with which Islamabad would like to develop relations not only in the military sphere. He recalled that the country's Ministry of Defense purchased Russian Mi-35 combat helicopters and expressed interest in acquiring other Russian weapons.

The Pakistani Defense Ministry reported that they are in constant contact with their Russian counterparts and are working on the acquisition of Russian military equipment and weapons.

Earlier, India expressed "concern" about Pakistan's plans to buy a batch of Pantsir-C1 air defense missile systems from Russia, as well as Islamabad's interest in Russian tanks T-90.

        I think the Chinese have a lower starting price, but operation, repair and maintenance are more expensive.

          In view of their quality, it is. It seems that everything is thought out, but saving on materials affects the duration of operation. They especially like to save money in mechanical units in general. It's their national fun, to make a knot from silumin when steel is needed there.))

          Pakistan is a mountainous country, there are special requirements for tanks and other armored vehicles. And our T-90 and T-72 show themselves better than others. Well, "Tank Biathlon" also demonstrates the quality of Russian armored vehicles.

      The military-political vector is changing. Russia .... Turkey .... Pakistan .... Moreover, Pakistan is considered stronger than Turkey and its closest ally. Indonesia will most likely be behind them.

      Well, what kind?

      anti-tank systems


      Cornet best buy if you need to massively arm the people and shoot without saving. It is better than the Chinese ATGM of a similar generation. And, all sorts of new HJ-10 is a different class and price, although I would not be surprised if Pakistan buys them.

      weapon


      Similarly, the AK will be the most in demand for another hundred years, especially in such armies. Well, the rest of the army shooter is also on the level. The Chinese have good aroids, and the packs on Kalash and German oars are G3.

      air defense equipment


      Depends on what. Carapace, MANPADS? They recently bought Chinese beeches.



      And Chinese Crotals


      And in Europe, the SPADA-2000 system has a 25 km range.

          So this is a plus, why bother dopchassi?

          Recession is not a bad complex, although structurally outdated, but not bad. There, the European version of the AIM-7 rocket, of course, under a hundred upgrades, there the fuel was changed, and the head, and the warhead.

          The archaic radar is a wide survey, like LAADS. Spada fires at the HEADLIGHTS on its own mast.

        The U-2 did not invade the USSR from the territory of India, and the spooks did not go to Afghanistan to kill the Russians, unlike Pakistan. In addition, there is an informal, but rather close alliance between the Muslim countries, within the framework of which Pakistan received free oil from the Saudis for the downed Russian-made Indian plane, which was enough for Pakistan for quite a long time. By supporting Pakistan, Russia spoils relations with both Indians and Afghans.

          That is why Russia is striving for good relations with this union.
          The share of Muslims in our country is significant and will only grow.

          So the Indians were the first to change the vector in favor of greater cooperation with the United States.
          This cannot be left without reciprocal steps, the support of India's traditional enemy.

    Let them buy it themselves, they also remember being offered it, but they said that "Pantsir", compared to the South Korean skimmer, sucks. It turns out - and I myself will not give it to others ... Not beautiful!

      Pakistan at knives with the United States. Not directly as strong as Iran, but threats won't work and even sanctions. For Pakistan, the main partner is China, the second is Turkey (+ Qatar), then the KSA and the UAE. He doesn't care about the rest.

    I didn’t understand India’s concern about Pakistan’s purchase of Carapaces, they are so bad, right? Let them buy Korean junk themselves and see which one is better if real collisions occur.

    Look how many Indians have bought American weapons.
    The helicopters certainly could not be bought from the Americans. We do not care about their multi-vector nature? That means we need to offer helicopters to Pakistan. So we have to act symmetrically. China has the S-400, and India will have it, and nothing.
