    The Saudis will definitely transfer part of the ammunition to ISIS, or they will buy everything for ISIS.

      Everything is for IG! Everything to defeat Assad!
      Pancake,
      guided bombs and other ammunition totaling over 40 thousand units worth $ 1,29 billion
      !!
      And even
      part of the bombs "will have laser guidance, and is intended to destroy specially fortified and protected objects."

      100% хотят "Случайно" в Асада попасть! А потом - извините, по "нашим" данным там были террористы+погода сбила наводку+бла,бла,бла!

        Here, most likely, just the deflection of mattress covers in front of the Saudis, in order to transfer such bombs to barmales, you need to transfer delivery vehicles, but no one will transfer planes to them. In Yemen, this is all intended.

        ISIS openly armed, and laser bombs are camouflage .....

      What carriers will these nomads bomb from? Rather, they stock up for Yemen. Perhaps even for Syria.

        Или я Вас не понял, Уважаемый коллега, иди Вы просто так пошутили. Но для информации. ВВС Саудовской Аравии по оснащённости превышают ВВС многих государств НАТО, к примеру ФРГ и Великобритании, и имеют в своём составе все типы самолетов, включая ДРЛО и заправщики. Причем последние закупки были наиболее "продвинутые" версии F-15SA и CE, подобные модернизированные версии, достаточно удачного F-15 есть на вооружении только ВВС США. Не имею информации по степени и уровню подготовки лётного состава, но уровень престижности королевских ВВС у саудитов достаточно высок.

          Most likely, DenZ meant by the nomads of the IS militants, about whom they already started shouting in the comments above that the Saudis are buying ammunition for them ...

          PS Actually, a strange policy is being pursued by the United States, very strange ... Just yesterday, Putin spoke openly at the summit about the countries, including the G20, which finance ISIS, and today the United States and the Saudis are doing everything to incite even more bonfire of war in the Middle East ...

          We will never have any common goal with them in the fight against terrorism in general, and with IS in particular ...

          Some countries, and specifically the USA, are now profitable to solve their economic problems precisely by unleashing a series of wars and bringing chaos to the world ...

          PS And when you consider that yesterday at the UN, they, the United States, previously tried to deprive them of the right to veto, imagine now their bitterness ...

          There was simply a version that part of the bombs would be transferred to the igil! We are talking about this.

      I agree, the warriors from the Arabs are the same, although the radicals are fighting hard. I wonder where they will be the remote control of these 40 bombs, maybe the Saud immediately from the Russian Federation send one to 000 mgt under their own power, so to speak a gift from the heart.

      And all this thanks to the vast distances to the American continent of resource-rich territories of the rest of the world. The vipers under the oceans hid behind the oceans like behind a huge wall, and unrequitedly crap the rest of the world. That's what they earn by collecting tribute from all.

      Interoperability is such a state of troops and military command and control organs when they can effectively work together. In more detail, these are the compatible (similar) procedures (the American term) for military planning, the compatibility of communications, troop and weapon control systems, communications, compatible approaches to organizing material and technical support for troop actions, compatible ammunition for main types of weapons, and much more another.

        Well, this is so clear, thanks. But what exactly did you want to say with your post? And what do you attach this post of yours to? Try not to confuse other people with your very clever remarks, in my post it was something else, there was a clarification of the reasons for such behavior of the country in connection with the peculiarities of the geographical location. Apparently you thought about something else, about something about your own, without going into the essence of the topic.

    Of course, part of it will be transferred to ISIS, but the Saudis still have a war in Yemen, and there the Hussites have drowned another ship of the Saudi Navy - this is the fifth in a row. If this goes on, the Saudis will soon need a new fleet.

    over 40 thousand units worth $ 1,29 billion

    One feels that they have abated in Yemen. A friend of the United States will gladly throw up ammunition, especially for money, to continue aggressive actions. And if there’s still a conversation about cartridges and anti-tank missiles, then part will go to the IG necessarily.

    The Saudi army is fighting, and like any army it needs to upgrade ammunition, because it doesn’t produce it, it buys over the hill what’s wrong .. The fact that IS weapons come from Saudi Arabia is a well-established practice, the same as Russian weapons that get through Hezbollah Syria.

    We all help the Lebanese Hezbollah (http://lenta.ru/news/2015/07/01/hezbollah/ for all that the United States, the Saudis, that Russia has terrorist organizations loyal to them, which they help in their geopolitical interests) ), The United States helps AnNusra, the Saudis help everyone who wants to overwhelm Alavit Assad. The practice of double standards is common here, it was, it is, it always will be. There are no innocent lambs here either.

    Guys, what are you arguing about? Of course, all versions have a place to be, but personally, I’m inclined if the IG gets it all and they don’t have delivery vehicles, the result is as follows: They will sort it out, extract explosives, imagine how many 40 thousand bombs come out ??? !!! And here’s another terrorist attack (((

      Doesn’t it seem absurd to buy expensive ammunition, with smart stuffing, in order for the terrorists to take apart these bombs and fuse explosives from there? It may be easier to buy Explosive in its purest form and deliver it where you need it, or in extreme cases buy old ammunition from stocks of Eastern European countries at worst, than engage in such nonsense
