    You are forgetting permanent territorial disputes with Morocco, fears of the future regimes in Tunisia and Lybia...

        Algeria's defense budget is smaller than Poland's and an economy the size of Romania (and Algeria is using 4.5% of its gdp too).
        Its main threats are internal.
        Poland economics are assembly line for Germanic business. It does not have its own GDP. It has to play by by EU rules.

        Algeria has this much reserves two years ago. which is large amount relative to population.

        Algeria's $200bn foreign currency reserves

        The International Monetary Fund has classified Algeria as the least indebted among the 20 countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Algeria ranks second in the classification of countries that have the most important exchange reserves, after Saudi Arabia

            JSR didn't say so either.

            The military have asked for a 10 billion $ budget (2 mins of "Google homeworks" will help you find the related links), so three things are sure:

            1. The budget is available for a massive buy of equipment (what will be bought is something else).
            2. IF (and only if) released by the governement, the 10 billion will mean an increase while compare to Poland (but I don't see what's interesting in comparing both countries - situation and needs of both are really different - )
            3. You're playing the troll here. And the "lol use" will not give you any credit, BTW.

              I did not say all of money for procurement. I merely pointing your in accurate comparision of comparing GDP of natural resource based country to GDP of assembly line countries.
              with meltdown in Libya. Algeria importance is increasing to squeeze a lot more money. Algeria can surely can afford entire list and they are all needed.

                Sigh, JSR economics. Where yet again we get an insight into his warped world view and his ability to bring up unrelated issues.

                Poland very much has a GDP and isn't some vassal for German industry. Poland has a GDP of about 800billion dollars and is one of the fastest growing economies in the EU. The country unlike many other countries in Europe has a positive GDP growth of close to 2%.

                Just laugh at him that is what I do.

                  Turkey has larger GDP than Poland. but it does not mean it can compete with KSA/Algeria in procurement.

                    Contract with Rosvertol worth $2.7 billion for 6 Mi-26T2 (already being built), 42 Mi-28NE (or based on algerian forum info, a customized version based on the UB), and modernization of 39 Mi-171Sh:
                    http://arms-tass.su/?page=article&aid=126015&cid=25

                    Looking forward to the implementation of the rest of the planned aquisitions above (the subs have already been contracted or shortly will be btw- 2 of them), especially the Su-34s and the S-400s !

                        rostov needs to ramp up! I expect the floodgates are now well and truly open for Mi28 international sales.

                          Rostov needs to invest in modern technologies for its production line: CAD/PLM/Virtual tooling!

                            So apparently Algeria has the highest military budget in Africa these days. What's up with that?

                                  Algerian salleries are waay lower vs western counterparts.. so yes, service comes cheaper.
                                  Thanks

                                    Were the MiG-29S ever fitted with R-77 missiles?

                                    This one shows bombs, B-8 rocket pods and AAM, although its unclear which ones: https://youtu.be/NQMxj7Ijgng?t=319

                                      MiG-29S with R-27T: https://youtu.be/RZtBFnEk4Iw?t=174

                                      First time I've seen these fitted to any MiG-29 version.

                                        In fact, I believe Algeria was the only MiG-29 nation to acquire those..
