Venezuela to buy 100 Russian main battle tanks

Venezuela has almost reached an agreement with Russia for the supply of a new party of one hundred main battle tanks T-72B1V as part of a $4-bln loan secured by Venezuela in 2011 to buy Russian weaponry, reports The Kommersant.

Russia completed in March the delivery of 92 modernized T-72B1V MBTs, the Smerch multiple-launch rocket systems and other military equipment to Venezuela under a separate $2.2-bln loan secured by Chavez' government in 2010.

Venezuela is a leading importer of Russian arms. Between 2005 and 2007, Caracas signed $4 billion worth of arms deals with Russia to buy Sukhoi fighter jets, combat helicopters, and small arms.

Russian loans to Venezuela are secured by Russia’s participation in a number of joint oil projects with Caracas.

Russia's state-controlled oil giant Rosneft has recently gained access to the Carabobo 2 block for $1.2 billion paid upfront and a $1-bln loan to Venezuela's state company PDVSA.
