Earlier this year, Konstantin Biryulin, deputy head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, told ITAR-TASS that Russia had completed the delivery of 100 T-90S tanks to Azerbaijan in April of this year and as many tanks could be supplied to that country again.
But Esen Topoyev, an adviser to the Rosoboronexport Director-General, told ITAR-TASS that “we have not yet supplied all the vehicles. We have fulfilled the contract by about 60% and we are planning to complete the deliveries in the first quarter of 2015,” he said.
“We have a contract with the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry for 100 pieces [T-90S tanks]. We are completing the contract but no new option or shipment is being considered at the moment,” Topoyev said.
