      Fiji has a big problem - the territory of the country, or rather the islands, slowly goes under water. It’s not about armaments. So Russia decided to help, especially 20 containers - it will not become poor.

              there would be a piece of territory under the base, and for that it’s a lot of variations to attach it to the military direction ....

              On the islands of Fiji are deposits of copper, gold, lead, zinc and several other metals.
              Nevertheless, due to the unprofitability of their development, only metals are mined in the country at present. gold and the accompanying silver. Gold has been mined and exported from the country since 1933. In addition, among other mineral resources, boot and piece stone, phosphates, sand, gravel and cement raw materials stand out (the only country in the country is located in Suva Portland cement factory)[19]. The main components of local cement are carbonate (coral) and siliceous sand, which are mined in the coastal zone (carbonate sand - in Lautala Bay, and along the coast west of Suva; siliceous sand - in the mouth of the Vunidava River, which flows into Lautala Bay) [18] . Phosphorite deposits are located on the Lau Islands, primarily on the island of Tuvuta [18].

              In addition to the mineral deposits available in the Fiji Islands, high probability of oil presence in the coastal areas of the country. As you know, the archipelago is part of the Southwest Pacific island-arc system, which is the border between the Australian and Pacific lithospheric plates. Within the territorial waters of Fiji, there are two shallow-water sedimentary basins of the Tertiary period, which have great potential for finding them the territory of large oil fields, the volume of which is estimated at 5,4 — 20 billion barrels.

          Give! And how.
          When they begin to understand that what they have stored is no longer necessary.
          From the word "nothing".
          When the cost of storage, disposal, etc. proudly more expensive than giving it to someone.

          And in the world they give both planes and tanks.
          Small arms and artillery weapons in general are regularly handed out.

      To remain Power, power must be incomprehensible and unpredictable - otherwise it is not Power, it’s just superiors ... Here, on the occasion, we can recall how, in one of the neighboring Worlds, foreign experts tried to predict the twists of politics by some mighty year after year and the mysterious Power: they noticed in what order they occupy their places on the tomb of the Founder during the days of the festivities of the local hierarchs, which this time allowed deviations from the alphabetical order when listing their names and the like. The experts were competent and multi-wise, their conclusions were deeply and perfectly logical; Is it any wonder that they were not lucky enough to make true predictions even once ...

      I think it’s easy to explain, if I’m not mistaken, about 15 million Kalashnikovs alone are in warehouses in Russia. In the light of the latest news about the adoption of new weapons, the state finds use in storage, with subsequent benefits for itself. The stocks of new samples will increase, while the old ones will slowly be sold or transferred in this way.

            In accuracy and range of aimed fire, the M-16 is superior to AK. The main feature of Kalashnikov is indestructibility. M-16 is too tender. It must be worn in cellophane. Kalash - borsch was stirred, barbecue on the barrel was fried, rinsed in a puddle and - shoot until the forearm is ignited.

      According to the newspaper, "supplies from Russia, in addition to small arms and ammunition, should also include trucks and a helicopter."

    The first ever Fiji official visit to Moscow by Prime Minister Bainimarama took place in 2013. Among other documents, the parties signed an agreement on military-technical cooperation. ”

    I understand that cooperation implies mutual interest. What is the interest of Russia in the Pacific? If only an MTO item for our Navy? Probably, the State Department has already been used to.

    The first ever high-level visit in the history of Russian-Fijian relations took place on June 27 - July 1, 2013: the Prime Minister of Fiji Frank Bainimarama visited Russia. During his negotiations with the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev and his meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, the state and prospects of expanding Russian-Fijian relations with focus on trade, economic and humanitarian spheres, as well as further cooperation in international affairs, were substantively examined. Five documents were signed: intergovernmental agreements on the mutual abolition of visa requirements and on military-technical cooperation.
    In November 2014, diplomatic officers of the Republic of Fiji completed an internship at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

      Yes, it would be necessary to get sick, and the equipment should be worked out by the designer Alekseev, such as Lun, KM, but he had a lot of developments there. And then the local kangaroo promised to take GDP for breasts.

    Actually, our Kalash will be lied to them in high esteem. They have everything in Oceania. Well, if there is interest then for God's sake. Well, 20 cont, well, 20 thousand trunks, business then.
    By geography, a hole is a hole. Away from the trade routes, so everyone must have given up on them. Coral beach is good, but we would have one secluded parking for submarines.

      just everyone forgot what's nearby (a little to the right of the map fellow ) - one of the states + the base of the Pacific Fleet of one "partner" power ....
      Our answer to Ukraine is the USA, the button on the chair, a trifle, but it’s unpleasant if the Fiji port is opened for the Russian Navy (especially for submarines) or the base for the VKS (damn well, the Air Force !! - it was better !!!!) or a tracking station for space.
      Catch the difference in approaches - a few billion bucks in the country 404 vs 20 containers of gunner + helicopter

    “Small arms from Russia were delivered to the country and located in the Queen Elizabeth’s Barracks in Nabua,” the acting director told the publication. Commander (built) forces William Naupoto.

    “I have to thank the Russian government for the timely donation,” he said.

    According to the military balance, the Fiji army is 3200 plus 300 in the navy. There is no air force, so our helicopter will be the basis of a new type of armed forces. They have no armored vehicles, from the artillery there are 12 Mortars of 81 mm, and 4 cannons used for ceremonial purposes, apparently English 25 pounds (so marked). There are 5 patrol boats in the navy. The ground forces include 1 company of special forces, 3 infantry battalions, 1 combat engineer battalion, and an MTO battalion. That’s basically it. In general, I feel from our gift that the Fiji army will directly degenerate. At the same time, 2 infantry battalions are involved in UN missions
