Afghanistan asks India to transfer the Mi-150 helicopters T-72 and 24 tanks to X-NUMX



Afghanistan sent a letter asking India to the possible transfer of military equipment used by the Indians, but which is derived from their arsenal. All this in order to quickly strengthen its own security forces in connection with the withdrawal of NATO troops after 2014.

Official Kabul requests 150 from the Government of India tanks, 120 units 105-mm PA guns, a large number of 82-mm mortars, a VTA An-32 aircraft, two squadrons of medium multi-purpose transport helicopters (24 units) and attack helicopters (24 units).

In addition, as reported by “India Tuday”, the Afghan authorities expect to receive a large number of trucks and off-road vehicles, small arms and ammunition, as well as assistance from India in providing technical maintenance and maintenance of equipment. It is also planned to create a military school, staffed by an Indian faculty.

These weapons and MTO services Afghanistan is asking for more than India’s assistance in the amount of 2 billions of dollars provided as a credit line for the rehabilitation and development of infrastructure, including the construction of dams, roads and bridges, as well as schools and hospitals.

In connection with the upcoming withdrawal of the NATO contingent, the previous request of India in the framework of military assistance was sent in mid-September this year.

The Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Afghanistan, General Sher Mohammad Karimi, stated the need for Kabul for military hardware from the Armed Forces of India, including main battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and artillery systems. General Karimi also appealed to the Indian side to ensure the supply of helicopters, communications equipment, other weapons and the restoration of Soviet-made weapons and equipment made up in the Afghan armed forces.

The Afghan Armed Forces Command has already submitted several lists of the required equipment to the Indian leadership since the signing of the strategic partnership agreement between the two countries in October 2011.

The Afghan Armed Forces include MBT T-55 and T-62, infantry combat vehicles BMP-1 / BMP-2, anti-aircraft artillery ZU-23-2, towed guns M-46. The same types of military hardware are in service with the Armed Forces of India or have recently been written off.

General Karimi also asked for help in providing simulators and training Air Force personnel for the maintenance and operation of the Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters.

However, according to Indian sources, as in previous negotiations, Indian officials reacted extremely cautiously to Karimi’s inquiries. They referred to the lack of equipment and the possible violation of the intellectual property rights of Russian manufacturers.

Although the state Department of Defense Enterprises (Ordnance Factory Board) has been licensed to produce many of these platforms for several decades, India has to coordinate the issue with Moscow for the sale of military hardware. The leadership of the Indian Defense Ministry also stated that the available reserves in case of war, which could become a source of supplies for the armed forces of Afghanistan, are currently insufficient for their own needs.

The real reason for the reluctance to transfer weapons according to the lists provided by Afghanistan, according to the sources of India Tuday in the office of the Prime Minister, is the fear that military equipment and weapons could fall into the hands of the Taliban. Therefore, India still prefers to wait.

In addition, supplying the Afghan army with weapons entails political consequences, since neighboring Pakistan, which is India’s regional rival, views Afghanistan as a zone of its special interests. Nonetheless, Afghanistan pointedly rejected Pakistan’s offer to train the Afghan military and provide a credit line.

Despite the reluctance to supply weapons, India continues to train the personnel of the Afghan armed forces. Over the past few months, more than 400 Afghan soldiers have been trained at three regimental training centers in northern India.

    The Taliban can immediately deliver the technology and recognize their leaders as the government of Afghanistan. Karzai will overthrow all one and tanks will not help.

      And why not Karzai turn to the Afghan drug mafia for a contribution to strengthening the defense of the Fatherland? Then he would be able to buy this equipment from Russia.

    And this will go down in history.

    India, at least, complies with the agreements and does not give Russian equipment to anyone. China would have given everything for a long time without asking permission.

      How are things in Russia,Russia was also able to transfer to Afghanistan not for free of course. Are the prices for military equipment in India cheaper than in Russia ?! winked

          It is a decommissioned weapon in India. In Afghanistan, it’s kind of like an election on the nose, here India is most likely waiting for who will be there and what will change there, because such a lantuha like Karzai should not be given anything.

    Yes, American technology and ours are not new for the "Indians". Maybe this is not the author's mistake, but a hidden position on the Afghan army. Dushmans that is easier. So they ask for old models. But everyone is right who thinks that as soon as the statesmen fled to the hut, the Taliban will quickly take over everything with the help of Pakistan. And Karzai has already bought several mansions in Europe. There is no chance for any secular regime in an Islamic state to resist the Taliban. Especially in a wild one like Afghan. fellow

    "... about the possible betrayal of military equipment used by the Indians, but which is being withdrawn from their arsenal"... from which reservation ... JOKE. It’s right if only the USSR really trained personnel for the army in Afghanistan ... and they are asking the Hindus to deliver equipment with which they are familiar and for which there is a service system.

    Strange alignment, even stranger coalition.
    Pakistan state emerged in 1947. as a result of the partition of British India, and the wound of the partition is still bleeding.
    Afghanistan is historically close to Pakistan by tribal communities.
    If 12-14 million Pashtuns live in Afghanistan now, then in Pakistan - 27-29 million.
    It is clear that the US and NATO are causing confusion with their policies in the Pakistan-Afghanistan-India region, but the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" and the historical connection of the tribes casts doubt on the transfer of sounded armaments by India to Afghanistan.
    To sell is another matter, but to arrange a trade transaction with a number of conditions, guarantees and restrictions.

      It may happen that not later, but immediately. NATO will leave the army and go to the Taliban. As long as the money is paid, Afghan soldiers go to get paid, stop paying, grow a beard and go to the Taliban to get paid.

    Afghanistan has virtually no funds for the purchase of weapons. The Americans financed the purchase, for the needs of the Afghan army, of helicopters in Russia. But then there were problems. So Karzai is looking for weapons "for free". And India does not have the right to transfer weapons purchased in Russia to third countries (such delivery conditions). Russia (Soviet Union) swelled huge funds for arming Afghanistan. All Soviet weapons passed to the Taliban. Russia will no longer follow this path.
