KIEV, September 2 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s state-run arms trading company Ukrspetzexport has signed a contract for the production and export of 49 main battle tanks Oplot to Thailand’s armed forces.
“The contract’s total sum exceeds 200 million dollars,” the company said in a statement on Friday.
Companies included in the state-run defence concern Ukroboronprom will build tanks.
According to the company’s statement, Ukrspetzexport also signed the contract for additional supply of 121 armoured personnel carriers BTR-3E1 and support vehicles worth over 140 million dollars.
