Moscow has kicked off its 2010 arms sales campaign by finalizing deals with Libya and Vietnam to buy advanced hardware. Tripoli signed a $1.8-billion purchase agreement that includes acquisition of six YAK-130 advanced jet trainers for delivery in 2011-12, in addition to tanks. Libya has also expressed interest in acquiring 12 Su-35s, the latest Sukhoi fighter in production; four Su-30MK2s, as well as the advanced S-300PMU2 air-defense system. Vietnam's weapons package, valued at around $1 billion, includes 12 Su-30MK2s for delivery starting next year.
