Interesting, thanks for the info. Found the same analysis dating back to 2006 there though
http://www.defesanet.com.br/afv/mbt_forecast_e.htm

I'm surprised not to see the new Daewoo K2 in the top 3, since around 1000 are planned in production until 2020 IIRC, for a unit value certainly higher than a T-90.
Or does the Forecast group see large-scale exports for all three T-90, ZTZ-99 and Khalid? That'd be interesting to see...

Sorry for the double post, I wanted to edit the first but I haven't noticed in time that the original Forecast International report was from 2006, hence the absence of the Korean K-2.
And hence the ludicrous sums spent on tanks, at least by March 2009 standards.

Talking about unlikely exports, I hereby advise fellow modders to pay attention to Sudan. I stumbled across some interesting videos* of a 2007 parade (apparently). Looks like Khartoum has been hoarding Chinese and Iranian supplies as if there is no tomorrow that doesn't involve lots of fighting.

Sorry for the blatant threadjacking, I'll post separately on this once I have enough infos.

*Warning, loud commentator.

They are certainly building/assembling/overhauling lots of stuff.

Tanks,from what I read elsewhere, are either assembled from imported kits, like the Al-Bashier, or modernized from existing stocks, like those ERA covered T-55s.

Maybe something to do with their boss (Bashir ?) being indicted as a war criminal?

Just my 2 cents,
