    ALGERIA TO BUY OVER 300 RUSSIAN-MADE BMPT-72 TERMINATOR-2 TANK SUPPORT COMBAT VEHICLES

    [​IMG]

    Algeria is going to buy over 300 Russian-made BMPT-72 Terminator-2 tank support combat vehicles (TSCV), the Algerian media outlet Menadefense reported on September 9.

    According to the report, Russia and Algeria signed a deal on delivery of Terminator-2 TSCVs in 2016 and Moscow will deliver the ordered combat vehicles in 2017-2018 to the Algerian military.

    Algeria is going to use Terminator-2 TSCVs in order to support T-90SA main battle tanks bought from Russia earlier. Now, the Algerian military uses technical vehicles equipped with Kornet ATGM launchers and ZSU Shilka self-propelled, radar guided anti-aircraft weapon systems for this task.

    if true, this will be qute a coup for Russia, being the second only sale of these vehicles. There must be a significant dollar value associated with an order of this size; vehicles plus associated missiles.

    I was sure I'd read somewhere that internal protection of the carousel had been improved/upgraded with a substantially reduced risk of the 'jack in the box' effect .. I will dig around and see if I can find the source.
