BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – Russia has begun delivering their elite T-90 tanks to the Iraqi military, Al-Sura News reported this afternoon.

“Russia begins deliveries of T-90 tanks to #Iraq with 73 scheduled to arrive to #Basra’s Umm Qasr Port this year.begins deliveries of T-90 tanks to #Iraq with 73 scheduled to arrive to #Basra’s Umm Qasr Port this year,” the news site stated.

Iraq is the latest purchaser of the T-90 tank, which was recently supplied to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) late last year.

The T-90 tank should provide a big boost to the Iraqi Armed Forces, who already possess a powerful armored arsenal themselves.

Iraqui already own export version of American M1A1 Abrams tank with lighter armour then american version (without depleted uranium layers in armor). So this is interesting news that they decided to buy Russian T-90 tanks…

M1A1 is a logistical nightmare (cost and time).
It’s a good tank, but for Iraq, T-90 is a better choice for sure
