They bribe Russia so they will abandon Assad. Russia should nuke S.Arabia and solve a world problem, not sell them weapons.

The bribing isnt working. Saudis lost a lot of tanks in Yemen and the M1 proved itself just as much a death trap as T-72 only it costs 3x more.

Saudis have money to waste, Russia will sell them tanks and Iran-Russia will give Hutis Kornets to kill these tanks...Middle East has become a world of paranoia and paralog. No end of suffering for the poor arabs.

It has nothing to do with losing clients. The Saudi's (assuming it's them) are notorious for purchasing equipment from both East and West, making supplying such vastly different vehicles and weapons systems, a logistical nightmare... But the Saudi's were never really known for their military prowess.. They just throw lots of money at things.

Kuwait has Yugoslav M-84A tanks, so they look like more reliable customer.

why would a tiny country like Kuwait need 400 MBTs with just 3.3 million people ffs ... more likely to be UAE ... they have shown a lot of interest in the T-90MS

actually it is Kuwait and UAE

Algeria already has 500 T90s so I don't think it's them.

Could be the Saudis, could be Kuwait. Maybe Egypt, but I don't know how they're going to pay as the Saudis cut off funding to them.

Kuwait ordered 400 T-90SM tanks and UAE is expected to sign a similar deal for the T-90MS ... Algeria has around 500 T-90S and they signed a deal for 340 T-90SM MBTs at the end of last year and India signed off on a deal for 464 T-90SM MBTs

It looks as Arabs like the simplicity of T72/T90. Only 3 crew members with minimal training and they operate a tank, not used efficiently but still better than no tanks.
On a side note, Armenia has 1 !!! T90 only, they won it on Tank Biathlon, lucky bastards.....
