  • Military Armaments Holdings 2005

    Came across this UN report. It details the arms trade between countries. What they bought, sold and have in national stocks. Its from 2005 but still has some interesting stuff in it.

          The first half of the report details all the procurement during the year. Who bought what and from whom. Irelands on page 26.

          Also the Czech Republic sold two Mig 23's to collectors in Holland and the US. Page 16

          Page 74 is lists our holdings

          Armoured combat vehicles 114 in total

          Large calibre artillery systems 127 in total

          The exact beak downs are on the page. Never thought it was that high a number. Admittedly some of the systems are not in service anymore but still.

          Also gives a very detailed break down of our neighbours inventory on pages 90 - 91.

          An our current partners in the Leb and Liberia. Pages 69 and 86 respectively.

                This UN site contains data going back to 1992 for all nations
                The first Irish entry relates to calender year 1994 - the amount of detail etc increases over the period

                  It looks like they are too ashamed to even mention 25 pounders.

                      Some of those L70's are used by the NS...I think? The ADR ones should be EL70, theres a big difference.

                        Javelin too, was that not procurred in 2005?

                        Maybe they arent classed as a missile!?

                          MOD: This is not the appropriate area to discuss the deployment of DF weapons systems.

                            I take it they didn't include the 25 pounders because they assumed they are musem pieces!

                              The information in the report was what was provided to the UN by the DOD. So if its not in the report the DOD didn't tell them and therefore we should keep our mouths closed about them.

                              Though in saying that I am surprised at the detail of some of the entrys eg UK and Czech Republic.
