Kuwait spends $ 10 billion to buy weapons

35
According to the French resource TTU, the government of Kuwait "in the midst of the crisis and the fall in oil prices" approved a bill providing for the purchase of new weapons in the amount of $ 10 billion, according to a blog bmpd.




“Although Kuwait really supports the forces of the Arab coalition in Yemen, this fact is used by the military to a greater extent as an excuse to push through the bill. Another important task is to prepare for a large-scale war with the "Islamic State", ”the publication believes.



The resource recalls that “Kuwait has already signed major military contracts and agreements in 2015: an agreement with the Italian group Finmeccanica to purchase 28 fighter jets Eurofighter Typhoon worth 7,5 billion euros, and a package of contracts with France worth 2,5 billion euros to purchase 24 helicopters Airbus Helicopters H225M Caracal and light armored vehicles, as well as the modernization of armored vehicles and the repair of combat boats. "

            Russia does not have very bad positions, despite the sanctions and the fact that now it is becoming a little crowded in the arms market.
            Since the start of operations in Syria, Russia has entered into arms sales contracts worth 17 billion.

      In fact, the contract was signed on October 21, 2015. Some of the helicopters for Kuwait will be executed in a special naval version and will be armed with Exocet anti-ship missiles.

    they are afraid that they may remain without a country altogether and arm themselves ... although this measure may not help ..

      I agree that it may not help. You must still be able to use such toys. Buy without crews. And it will turn out like in Iraq. ISIS will come at all ready

    The Arab world is preparing for a big war, most likely interfaith, the Sunnis and Shiites will slaughter each other. The Saudis are already gathering a Sunni coalition against Shiite Iran.

      I completely agree with you. The case is going to a big war in the BV.

        In principle, I agree, but in my opinion the Shiites show greater combat effectiveness than the Sunites. Take Iran and Hezbollah for examples. Sunites only under "fanaticism" (ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation) or the Baath party under Saddam Hussein in Iraq can / could show strength, and so a bunch of "little men" with modern weapons which the Houthis in Yemen kick as they want.

    When you have something to protect, you need to protect it!
    And when money pours in the river (oil), you need to think about who to feed these purchases. All this is not just happening!

    That drank this dough! smile But seriously, what's the use of so many technology? An example of the Iraqi army shows that it was cheaper to equip it with old trash. Still lose. Duck is not so sorry. There Ukraine will be able to ship this. Kuwait who is going to fight then? How many days does he expect to hold out?

    And why does Kuwait need so many fighters. They also require expensive maintenance, and ammunition. This is a whole aviation regiment. In one flight under a hundred tons of ammunition it can use up, and no less fuel.

    I don’t understand who they will put in tanks and planes? The army there is just microscopic (about 15 thousand) and are going to fight with ISIS.

    28 Typhoons at 7.5 lard ... more expensive than the F-22s get ... even with spare engines, simulators and training ... and ground equipment. In live Papuans!
    And the French helicopters ... neither Tiger, nor Augusta .. nor Apache, after all ... The bearded ones are completely brutalized.
    Salvage is not considered at all. For these candy wrappers, you can buy modern Russian weapons with crested mercenaries behind the wheel, immediately in bulk .. And the 50 Su-30MKKs, plus 50 Mi-28Ns, will immediately put this tiny peninsula among the strongest aircraft in the BV. Given the Abrams and BMP-3 ..
    I want a distant bearded relative.

    It’s good for Kuwait, it can do whatever it wants, because it has oil .. Now, if we had oil, we would also have everything in chocolate ... Although, wait a minute, we have plenty of oil! And why then are we not all in chocolate ?!
