Iran and Nigeria enjoy freindly militaray relationship and most work in missile projects together. As states Nigera will be buying iranian ballistic missiles (Shahab) which leaves in mind which one?, Shahab-3 or 4?.



Friday, March 24, 2006
Iran and Nigeria are continuing to discuss joint defense and military programs as part of bilateral cooperation launched in 2005.

Officials said this has included the prospect of Iranian arms sales to Nigeria, one of the biggest energy producers in Africa.

Officials said Nigeria has sought Iranian help in establishing a defense industry in the African state. They said Iran has already offered to send weapons technology and personnel to build defense factories.

Defense cooperation was formally launched when Iran and Nigeria signed a memorandum of understanding in June 2005, Middle East Newsline reported.
. The MoU was signed during a visit to Teheran by Nigerian Defense Minister Rabiu Kwankaso, who toured Iranian weapons production facilities.

Officials said Nigeria would seek Iranian help to produce light weapons, mortars and anti-tank missiles. They said in a later stage Iran could supply the African state with ballistic missiles.

I thought weapons were suposed to go into Iran, given to them by other people not the other way around.


Concerned Citizen-"they are givin missiles to *snip* der derrrrr"

Mod Edit: I don't think that particular word was needed.

Ignoring what could be taken as a potentially racist comment by some...

I have to ask why on earth Nigeria needs ballistic missiles. Generally speaking I though ballistic missiles were only useful if you wanted some first strike capability or wanted to be able to enter a state of MAD. And I'm pretty sure you don't get very cost effective results from either of those without a WMD mounted as a warhead.

But that's just my unprofessional opinion.

The same reason why Algeria is buying 7 BILLION USD worth of military hardware from Russia? We have state of the art Su-30 MKIish a/c, MiG-29/35 SMTs, tanks etc.. etc...

7 BILLION US dollars?!! how/why/when/where what?!?!!

Note that the annual defense budget for last year was just over 1 billion USD.

No no.. I don't think Algeria and Nigeria have animosity towards each other. Infact what I was trying to say was that Nigeria tryng to acquire ballistic missiles was as confusing as Algeria acquiring hi-tech military hardware.
