Finland to Sell Soviet-made Tanks

Category: Defence Industry

The Finnish Ministry of Defence intends to sell several hundreds of Soviet-produced tanks.

According to the Satakunnan Kansa newspaper, the potential sale could include 200 T-54 and T-55 tanks as well as 160 T-72s which were phased out of service in 2004.

At present, Finland searches potential buyers among the former allies of the ex-USSR, which still keep Soviet-made military vehicles in their inventory.

According to ITAR-TASS, the possible purchase of the above tanks is reportedly considered by Vietnam.
