Venezuela to buy Russian arms, tanks

Oh boy...

Between 2005 and 2007, Moscow and Caracas signed 12 arms deals worth a total 4.4 billion dollars. Venezuela has acquired 24 Sukhoi fighter planes, 50 combat helicopters and 100,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles. In 2008, it secured a one-billion-dollar loan for the purchase of new weaponry.

Under the new deal, Venezuela would buy a modern battalion of "30 to 40" Russian-made BMP-3, T-72 and MPR tanks, Chavez said following a telephone conversation with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. ...

...Chavez in March also offered Venezuelan air bases for use by Russian long-range bombers.

^Yeah it's not exactly new news. Hugo Chavez has been buying stuff from the Russians for a while now. In 2006, he ordered 100000 AK103's from Russia.
