Military equipment manufactured by the State Concern “UkrOboronProm”, namely BTR-4E successfully passed standards process and can be purchased by the Royal Thai Army. At the same time, Thailand provided standardization of different types of equipment to supply various units of the army. There is an ongoing BTR-4E purchasing negotiation for Royal Thai Army, the decision will be made during the 2017-2018 period.
UOP specialists stressed the fact that Thailand is Ukraine’s strategic partner and one of the main foreign operators of the domestic military equipment. For over ten-year cooperation period, Royal Thai Army purchased and successfully operates more than 200 pieces of Ukrainian production military equipment – all the while Ukraine received no complaints.
We should note that the large-scale training – using military equipment of Ukrainian production – was completed today in Thailand. Tanks and armored vehicles of UOP production showed perfect results and were highly estimated by the Royal Thai Army leadership, who attended the training.
The State Concern “UkrOboronProm” once again emphasizes the need to verify the information, distribution of which can result in losing Ukraine’s image on the international arena. “We ask Ukrainian media not to play into the hands of the enemy, waging the hybrid, as well as information warfare against Ukraine. Arms export issues have a direct bearing on the reputation of the state, pumping up the budget and investments in the domestic defense industry,” said UOP representatives.
