So to update what's going on with the multiple planned Russo-Venezuelan contracts, in 2008 a contract for MANPADS Igla-S was signed, and apparently several more contracts are expected in 2009. I also missed the contract for the Tor-M1 SAMs to Venezuela, which was rumored, but I never saw it confirmed. Deliveries have no begun on it. http://arms-tass.su/?page=article&aid=69354&cid=24 A deal is planned on Il-78MD and Il-78MK transports and tankers, Two are already in Venezuela being tested, and apparently the decision to buy them has already been made. They're just finalizing the contract. There are also plans to get several project 636 subs, and 10 Mi-28NE helicopters. Still no news on a BMP-3 contract with Venezuela. However speculation about a T-90S purchase, which according to the article, Venezuela needs 600 units of. So... the tanker deal looks like it's almost gone through. The Mi-28NE deal also seems likely. Though deliveries are likely to be a while off on that one, as the Mi-28N is currently being produced for our army as well. The rest seems like speculation to me.
