From the Desk of the President of the People's Republic of Cape Libertad and Dependent Territories:

Greetings Comrades,

Following our successful overthrow of the injust absolutist monarch regime in our fledgling nation we are looking to dispose of the contents of the former Royal Treasury, consisting of some billions in monies, overseas accounts, overseas real-estate, and jewels and artifacts. We look to put this bourgoise mass of wealth into good use through modernisation of our armed forces and also where possible modernise our medical, educational, agricultural and transportation services. We look to the international community to establish any trade deals possible, please note that we do not wish to be approached with any suggestions of nuclear, chemical or biological weaponry agreements.

The Imperial Arms Corporation would be pleased to provide you with whatever you might happen to require.
Some sort of listing of the items your require would be useful, however. Main battle tanks, artillery, infantry weapons, and so forth, or other items? IKO is of course, ready to provide all of these should your request it and, of course, if you have the money.

Many thanks for your proposal, we are of course prepared to make a considerable purchase. We currently seek an assortment for our arsenal. Infantry weaponry and armour as well as techincal equipment such as laser-sight, night vision equipment and small explosives are required. Heavy artilary and invasion-prevention artilary and support vehicles are also needed. In particular we need to establish a modern air-force and would be interested in both light and heavy assault helicopters and fighter jets. Some bombers would also be useful. The below order sums our requirements and we await your recommendations for fulfilling these:

Personel armour: 10,000 units
Assault Rifles with grenade capacity: 6000 unit
Pistols: 7000 units
Anti-tank mines: 3000 units
Light-armoured vehicles: 300 units
Heavy-armoured vehicles: 300 units
Light tanks: 250 units
Heavy tanks: 300 units
Land-air missile technology: 200 missiles and launch equipment for 5 sites
land-sea missile technology: 300 missiles and launch equipment for 10 sites
Full available range of equipment for 10 military sites including radar equipment, missile launch technology, missile guidance technology, advanced IT equipment with secure encoding technology, master operating system to over-ride all military installation computing equipment, missile storage equipment, re-inforced building supplies, missile assembly equipment if available.
Military jets with maximum missile holding capacity: 100 units.
Attack helicopters: 50 units.
Military bombers: 10 units.
Military jeeps: 400 units.
Grenades: 5000

This is our pre-limenary list for rearmament. All payment shall be made through liquidation of the former Royal Treasury and paid into any specified account. We have a large lump-sum of disposible income since deposing of the monarch, we expect the best technology and reliability possible.

Ah, this is most fourtunate. Dontgonearthere is happily in possesion of most of the items you seek.

((G1 = 2USD, just so ya know)

In terms of ballstic vests, we can provide 10,000 units at a cost of G350 per unit. Said vests provide good protection from most modern weapons rounds at ~200m, and this protection can be enhanced with the addition of rigid plates within the armour.

We have 10,000 AK-47 assault rifles for a price of G150 per rifle, or 5,000 AK-74 assault rifles for G220 per rifle.

8,000 TT-33 pistols for G75 per pistol. They are older models, but, like the AK-47, they are quite reliable and rugged.

We have a number of BMP-3 and BTR-80 vehicles. The BMP's go for G120,000 per unit, the BTR's G250,000

We have no 'light' tanks per se, but the BMP can be employed as one.

'Heavy' tanks, we presume this includes main battle tanks, include the T-55 (G1,000,000 per unit), T-62 (G2,500,000 per unit), T-72 (G3,000,000 per unit), T-80 (G4,000,0000 per unit) and T-90 (G5,500,000 per unit). Obviously more advanced tanks cost significantly more than less advanced models, quality or quantity is up to you.

By way of Surface-to-Air missiles, the S-300P provides excellent coverage in a heavy air defence platform at a going rate of G4,500,000 per launch unit and G750,000 per missile. It is designed more to take out ground support aircraft and helicopters than fighters.
A lighter platform is the 'Tor', going for G2,500,000 per launch unit and G250,000 per missile. It is significantly faster, and more geared towards jets and other fast aircraft.

Anti-Shipping missiles include the RPK-6 Vodopad missile system, going for G2,000,000 per launch system and inlcuding the missile. This provides a decent anti-shipping missile, although it is not suitably modern to take out the top of the line ships employed by most of the modern navies, it will, however, work quite well against any enemies you are likely to face.

The MiG-29 should prove suitable to your needs in terms of a fighter aircraft, it performs well in most case and is not expensive at G24,000,000 per unit.

Perhaps it would be wise to resolve these purchases before moving on.

FYI, NS tracker gives your defence budget at S$124,346,147.52, and an exchagne rate of S$22.1144 = $1.
Which gives you a total defence budget of...5,623,977.70
I never liked the exchange rate thing anyway though, so we can go with the first number if you like. I can do installment payments as well if you like, but 5 billion USD is a bit out of your range.)

The Commonwealth of Tolvan can supply you with 3,000 surplus MAV-37 AT mines for a total cost of US$19 million.

Nearly 80% of the MAV-37 is plastic or composite material, making very difficult to detect. The MAV-37 also features built in anti-tampering devices to make removal difficult. The mine's warhead consists of a 22.5 explosive forged projectile and is capable of stopping even the most heavily armored vehicles. The fuse has variable settings to allow to choose what weight class of vehicle the mine will engage. (In other words you can lower the weight setting to take out cars or reaise it to only engage tanks.)
