Don't know what arms, but it's a big amount. Russia only has 140 million people. This is 25 dollars going to each Russian. Not shabby. Saudi Arabia has never bought any Russian arms. This is a first. Possibly more deals in the future.

Imagine if you will, a russian su-47 with american avionics and ammunition. An american abrams, with russian missiles......

States that could do that would be very safe.

Maybe they want to jump up the league table to be above russia on defence spending: the uk has just dealt another deal with them as well as US . The figures are a bit wild some saying they spent 350 bn with trump and others said 100bn , 3.5 bn to russia then sounds rather small , and ours was something like 17bn off the top of my head, could have been 34 .

We gave them a 3.5B refund to buy Russian hardware so we can take a good look at it. It's a conspiracy I tell 'ya!

Sure looks that way. Especially considering Iran and Saudi Arabian have the evil eye for each other and Russia is Iran's biggest backer.

The again, that's the M.O. of Saudi Royalty, I.E. buy off the 'Princes' of the House with every toy imaginable. Keep everyone content seems to keep the old guard in power.

Potential adversary? Pay 'em off....

Somebody is building up a big cache of armaments to supply Isis with in the very near future....

I wonder what "big event" is in the works ?

The bombing of the Eiffel tower ?
The Tower of London ?
The new EU building ?
The House of Leadership in Tehran ?
The Kremlin ?
The Pentagon ?



Shiny new toys to play with indeed.
