    Russia's military operation in Syria has increased the number of orders for military hardware, representatives of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said.

    According to Kommersant-Dengi, the cost of the contracts could be several times higher than the cost of the military operation in Syria.

    For the time being, Algeria intends to buy 12 Su-32 bombers (the cost of the contract is evaluated at $500-600 million) and has already purchased 40 helicopters ($600-700 million). The country is also interested in purchasing ten Su-35 ($850 million).

    Indonesia and Vietnam are also interested in buying the Su-35C. Their potential contracts are evaluated at $1 billion in total). Pakistan is also an interested party ($500 million). In addition, Russia continues negotiations with Saudi Arabia and India to deliver S-400 air defense systems to these countries.

    Thus, the marketing effect of the Syrian campaign may give Russian contracts worth $6-7 billion (400 billion rubles). Earlier, President Vladimir Putin said that the Syrian operation cost the Russian budget 33 billion rubles. Independent sources evaluated the minimum cost of the campaign at 38 billion rubles.

    If you guys remember my earlier post on this subject, I had very clearly predicted that the cost of Syrian campaign for Russia is next to zero but what they will get back in terms of weapon sales will be many times this cost. @Averageamerican was predicting bankruptcy for Russia. This shows how warped the understanding of international affairs is in Americans.

    That was U2. The so called junk kept away SR-71 flights from Russian mainland and recently in Libya, even a Rafale was nearly shot down by similar Russian Junk.
