Saudis to buy Russian weapons?

Saudis to buy Hinds & Hips?

Surprising news? What do the Saudis want from the Russians in return?

Even updated, is the Hind a decent piece of kit by current standards?

Also, sounds like the French need to change their sales techniques.
An enormous bribe.

Allegedly.
Sadly it seems BAE's "representative" Prince Bander didn't get to wet his beak with this one.

That's all right, the Saudi Royal Family has plenty more corrupt bastards looking for a kickback.

8) You buy Russian gear with kick back or not then you have a foot in all the camps, so you wont get cut off for spares etc. by any one country eg. U.S. U.K. France, Russia dont put all your eggs in one basket. This may stop Russia from playing the Iran game? and keep the present Saudi rulers in power for longer, money is god not Allah. 8) 8) 8)
