IRAQ TO GET RUSSIAN TANKS?
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 65
An official at Russia’s Transmash tank plant said yesterday that the Omsk-based company would not rule out negotiating a sale of its T-80 UK tanks to Iraq following the lifting of UN sanctions on that country. The officials also said that Russia’s Defense Ministry had ordered no tanks from the plant this year, and that planned modernization of the T-80 UK would be financed by foreign contracts signed by Russia’s state arms export company, Rosvooruzhenie.
