Abu Dhabi Arms fair 2011

were any forum members in attendance at this?

BAE systems said there was fierce interest from the Algerian in some of their satellite navigation systems which is interesting.

azerbaijan apparently are interested in buying the new ukranian designed oplot tank below

for me no tank beat the israeli merkava mark 4

obviosuly this wasnt on show in abu dhabi but id say there would be no shortage in any arab states putting in a bid for a few if they could

Is it a bit like the ploughing championship?

Maybe the tourist quango we have here will look into hosting an arms show here? It maybe would go someway to paying off the IMF. :smiley:
