Libya is considering the price of Russian Kalashnikovs


“I visited the Kalashnikov factory, where I received offers and pricing information. I conveyed this information (to the commander of the Libyan army), Khalifa Haftar, a delegation is currently being formed that will study this issue. The Russian side welcomed us very much, ”said the Libyan official.

He recalled that "most of the command of the Libyan Armed Forces are graduates of Russian universities."

“For example, the commander of the Libyan Air Force, Saqr Jerushi, speaks Russian. We have historically developed good relations, ”added al-Quyri.

According to him, Libya also intends to buy military boats in Russia. “I visited the factory for the production of military boats in Russia, and Russia agreed (to deliver them). Now this issue is being considered by experts, ”he said.

    Libya is considering the price of Russian Kalashnikovs.

    It would be more correct to say that those Tripoli districts that are still controlled by the official Libyan authorities are asking the Russian Kalashnikov assault rifles.

      I agree with you. It’s not like Tripoli, every village in any province has its own power. And, as a rule, adhering to radical, pro-ISIS views. It would be, at least shortsighted, to sell any weapons to the weak central authorities of Libya. Soon it may be in the hands of the radicals.

        But if we do not sell, then all of Libya will be under the radicals! We need to sell, this market cannot be lost either, and we have the economy now (no choice), so I think that Russia is ahead !!!

          1. How much money will the Libyan Provisional Government buy these weapons? All the oil fields in the country have long been under the control of Islamists, Berbers, Tuareg, local influential businessmen or former generals of Gaddafi.
          2. Do you seriously believe that a war can be won only with the help of superior weapons? But what about the material and technical support, the combat discipline of the troops, the morale of the fighters and the list goes on? The flight of the Iraqi army’s many times the number of radicals in Mosul in July last year is significant.

            Koloradovatnik The answer is in your question !!! With the money of Islamists, Berbers, Tuaregs, local influential businessmen or former Gaddafi generals.
            By number two. Nobody thinks so. The point is simply to sell weapons, But nothing was said about the victory of anyone.

        It will most likely be there, and our "partners" will accuse us of complicity with ISIS. The option is not new at all, the topic has been worked out to the smallest detail

      Haftar’s army was expelled from Tripoli for a long time. There Dawn of Libya only - former Misurats. They are fighting with Haftar.

      Haftar has the capital of Tobruk, he is more or less controlling the west of the country with the help of Egypt and is fighting for Benghazi with the Islamists, and the Islamists in Benghazi are now fighting each other, there IS, Maghrib, the radicals break away from the Dawn of Libya.

          Yes, east, misspelled. The Egyptians fly up to Derna to bomb. Well, Haftara is supported as much as they can, because it is a buffer on the western border of Egypt.

      According to this project, there was a nuance, the Libyans needed a modification with the ability to fire 3 shots. The concern completed the task, but it should be noted with great difficulties, delays and costs, which indicated the need for modernization of production. Perhaps they have already upgraded, or maybe not. Sincerely.

        Where did they get their money now? In debt, of course ... Well, and then, as usual, we "restructure" the debt, and with ends.
        We buy all friends for ourselves. And how much can you jump on a rake?

    Ammunition, again. So everything is fair.

      There are natural resources that can be developed. There is a ruined country that needs to be rebuilt. The West already concludes contracts at full speed. In order to break it, and then rebuild for the loot. And here we appear with our interest. It was high time. Neighboring Mali is almost a French colony, but we once worked there and are completely mutually beneficial. The current president of Mali in Russia studied, the previous one too (Ryazan Airborne School). The same story with Libya. Africa is waiting for the Russians to work with us. Really waiting, because we did not trade them, like Europe and the USA. There is no age-old resentment. And the need for development is great. It is necessary to start earning money in Africa from somewhere, from Kalash Duc and Kalash.

      Unless the resource is important to them. To carry out some brief - temporary tasks. That is quite likely. AK clones are produced by a lot of more than 45 countries. And it is artisanal and without a license. And the prices are 2-3 times lower. How can you trust such weapons ....?! The Russian resource has 10-12 thousand shots. Others have less. So draw conclusions .....

    The Libyans have plenty of reasons to buy weapons. There are enough people who want to help this people.

    Say what you like, but "Kalashnikov" is a very well-known brand of weapons in the world and did not cause any particular complaints. It's another matter that, yes, what money is the official Libya going to use to buy weapons and who to arm them with? How would we, in pursuit of money, do a disservice to ourselves by arming (trophying) ISIS with an excellent complex.

    Looking closely? Very good, if only they paid not with oil. The country after the "democratization" by America is destitute.

    We need to sell our weapons to everyone who wants to buy them. It doesn't matter what orientation these buyers are. For us now, only one thing is important - to load our military-industrial complex with work so that the country has a profit. Well, if someone foaming at the mouth is on jingoistic patriotic positions, then we can offer to sell weapons to our "temporary" (namely, temporary, as our history convincingly proves to us) allies, with a small discount. laughing

    Of course it is necessary to sell 'Toko is not in debt to give, otherwise they are tired of forgiving everyone. Let the Arabs fight with someone they like. Now they have their own Leader in the country, if you can call it a country in each province. Like the Americans with the West, they gouged them out like that. and it ended with the country. By the way, and the money Libyan billions of dollars were lost in the West and we were forgiven the debt.

    You can also sell AK-74 from storage depots. And if they were also converted into a cutoff and with body kits ... In fact, the Libyans do not need more. And climb to Libya with your interest on the subject of oil is not worth it. For there too muddy topic is happening ...
