      These are not buyers ..
      do not be mistaken.

      On combat vehicles, experiments with combat modules, as in a female dressing room ...

      Remember. How many combat models were fitted on the Piranha?
      Pieces 30 or can under 50 of various options.
      And not all of them were considered at least successful.
      And they found their buyer generally a couple of.
      In most of these cases, fitting is paid at best at parity.

      So do not put the cart in front of the horse ...

      I would not cooperate, Neither with the Emirates, nor with the Saudis. Not everything is measured in dollars.

    I am amazed that the Emirates are producing weapons. Competitors are advancing. Let them not competitors, but not buyers anymore. Buying only a combat module is a bad sign, they will learn how to make them in 2-3-5 years.

      In any case, they will conduct the development of their combat module. In the meantime, we sell our money to them - we get the money and everyone is happy.

    Most likely these are bolt caps, quick-detachable panels.

    I don’t understand something, it’s kind of like our sworn friend, second after Turkey. And him modules? It would be possible to understand if half the proceeds were bought weapons for Yemen.

      Do not confuse the UAE with the SA, the UAE is also not very happy for us, but, nevertheless, not as stubborn as the Saudis.

        Horseradish radish is not sweeter. Moreover, it is still unknown who the final buyer is. But I want to believe that there will be no "big secrets" in the supplied module! And so, please, yes for your money! The proceeds will not prevent the plant from developing the theme!

    Loot wins over reason and common sense. so it will be more accurate .. Remember the reaction of these emirates to the entry of a Russian air group into Syria and their reaction to the downed Russian su-24 .. And now some here are happy about such "cooperation" with them, and even in the sale of weapons .. Truly, modern capitalist countries and their governments there is nothing sacred .. Only money, at any cost ..

    Don't confuse the Emirates and the Saudis. The Emirates have been buying our BMPs for a long time. Only in the photo is a tower with a twin weaving-thirty. And we do not have a module for 57 in the series. The warriors have a lot of doubts about such weapons. Here the Emirates will give their best, test them, "sing", and we will see. Economical and efficient. It will turn out well - we will apply, but if not - we will not lose anything.

    French partners are the most "reliable" partners in the world!
    But, a holy place is never empty.

    The Emirates have a lot of money for our engineers to turn to, especially with a lack of funding for science and promising developments in the field of tank building. In the future, something will happen to our army, it is worth remembering FSUE "Basalt" in cooperation with Jordan (with their money) developed the RPG-32 "Hashim"

    Those. we ourselves do not know whether we need it or not .. let's see how the others do .. if it works out then then it is necessary and if not .. Yes ... so .. But what about military science ..? Or is it in Russia also based on this principle "let's see what the emirates are singing and who else is there ..." ..? great you will not say anything .. only with this approach you should not expect any INDEPENDENT advanced developments in military affairs ..

      And now we do not have and will not have advanced independent developments, so what? Or millions of these boxes will rush to Syria, or they will immediately trample on Moscow? Che for moans, let them have fun. Will technology be stolen? What's super secret? If you disassemble a Rubik's cube, it's not a fact that you will collect it if you don't know how. But such "manufacturers" have problems with knowledge, and there is simply no school.

    Yes, I don’t confuse them .. They and those and others do not differ much from each other in terms of what I have listed .. In addition, with the Saudis, too, the Russian authorities are almost "hysterically" kissing .. In the end, as it were with the Turks .. But here everything is like in that Russian proverb .. "until the roast cock in the f ... will not bite .." (c) ..))))))

    I have read many times that the 57mm automatic cannon is EXCESSIVE POWERFUL. I also heard about the problems with a high-explosive fragmentation projectile. I am sure it can be solved with a projectile. For example, a remote fuse. But how SURE and AGGRESSIVE in battle, armored vehicles will behave almost any easily! , are "carried out" or require additional booking. As a result, the enemy incurs significant costs for armor, suspension, transmission and engine. soldier
