Kuwait's MBT decision could revive tank production in Croatia and Serbia

Kuwait's decision whether to modernise its fleet of M-84 main battle tanks (MBTs) could spur the revival of production of the vehicles by Serbia and Croatia, Serbian media reported on 17 June.
Senior defence ministry officials from Serbia and Croatia met to discuss possible modernisation strategies for the vehicles, which could be at the core of a significant defence collaboration between the two republics.
"Tank production can be revived if there proves to be a need," said Stevan Nikcevic, general director of Jugoimport SDPR, which co-ordinates the domestic defence industry. "I cannot say anything about the details of the commercial contract with Kuwait. We have transported the M-84 AB1 tank there and thus the modernised version and demonstrated its capabilities. The Kuwaitis were pleased with what they saw."
