Nigeria welcomes three T-72 M1 main battle tanks (MBT), to fight Boko Haram, IHS Jane's Defence Weekly reports. Additionally, the source informed of other types of armoured vehicles (BMPs) and anti-tank complexes being shipped to Nigeria via air transport.

The total price of the delivery was estimated at USD8m (N1,536,400,000). Excalibur Group company (Czech Republic), that specialises in refurbishing military equipment, was one of the contractors.

A total of 16 vehicles have been transported via Antonov An-225 (Mriya) aircraft from Ostrava-Mosnov airport to the end user's location since January 26, 2015.

It would be noted that the recent success of the Nigerian Army may be attributed to use of heavy tanks for military operations in ‎Michika‬ and ‪‎Madagali‬.

Boko Haram insurgents, who use ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft guns mounted on their vehicles, cannot penetrate the explosive reactive (ERA) armour of a T-72.
The terrorists have RPG-7 anti-tank hand-held grenade launchers that are able to damage the MBT. However, RPG's firing range is 500m, while the T-72 can demolish any target from the range of 3-5km.
Facts about T-72 MBT:
- over 25,000 built since 1973;
- exported in over 40 countries worldwide;
- price USD1...2m. May increase drastically depending on modification;
- first ever world championship for militaries operating T-72 took place in Russia in August 2014.

Here is my Pledge on the ELECTION day!


I pledge to Nigeria my country.
To remove Jonathan and Sambo,
To be gentle, loyal on election day,
To vote BUHARI and OSINBAJO with all my strength,
To protect my vote and uphold no violence and trouble.
So help me God!

Forget the T-72s,pretty much old school but the best battle tank of its generation,its ancestors T-50s are judged to be operationally better than the American Shermans and the legendary Nazi Panzerfaust king tigers in range,speed and armour..the T-72s are devastatingly efficient..the BMPs, my dear people of Nigeria, are the sh**t..coming with 30 mm autocannons,mortar launchers,portals for easy and quick fire suppression by all occupants, diesel engines, high tensile front,side armour,subwoofer sleek internal environment..we are talking about 300 horses of pure russian muscle and firepower.I'd kill to be part of its crew..We will give the American Bradleys a run for their money..Kudos to Daddy Goodluck for these toys..

Unlike Buhari who bought no arms & ammunition while he was MAXIMUM ruler for two years shocked

Only to turn around now and say Jonathan should not fight Boko Haram


Buhari faults crackdown on Boko Haram

Presidential candidate for the Congress for Progressive Change in the 2011 Presidential election, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has frowned on the emergency rule in parts of the North. He alleged that innocent civilians were being killed in the states.

Buhari speaking during a Liberty FM Hausa Service Programme, Guest of the Week, on Sunday in Kaduna said that Boko Haram members were being killed and their houses demolished unlike the “special treatment” given to the Niger Delta militants by the Federal Government.

A professional,and good at it warrior never displays his weaponry but his accomplishments speaks.
Me no like all ths display every now and then it dose not show maturity at all.
Compare the strategises of boko the devil full of suprises that't the game of an experienced warrior...Not words,displays/showcasing but action/suprises
