Ukraine sells its Oplot tanks to Thailand

Oplot main battle tank

Oplot tanks are difficult to produce, but Ukraine's weaponry is quite competitive. 

The "Ukroboronprom" defence industry concern sends a new layout of its Oplot tanks to Thailand, the venture's representative told UNIAN agency. 

The corresponding contract on the distribution of 49 Ukrainian tanks was signed in 2011, with the amount of USD 250 million involved.  This is the fourth layout of 5 armoured combats machines to Thailand since 2011.
