    Why,sir?

    Postscript: Museveni wants a Sukhoi overhaul centre for his 5 remaining Sues!?

    "In a meeting with President Putin, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni asked Russia to set up a military equipment repair centre in Uganda to save Kampala the regular cost of ferrying broken aircraft to Russia for repairs....
    “We want to build a workshop for maintenance, overhaul and upgrade, because we have quite a bit of Russian equipment there. But for overhaul, we need to bring it all the way back here and then take it back at high transport costs. So we would like to localise the maintenance and overhaul.”

    For years, Uganda has been buying military jets, tanks and other weapons from Russian state-owned arms exporter Rosoboronexport. But often, negotiations dragged on and Kampala was asked to pay in cash, according to President Museveni.

    “What I propose is that you supply and we pay. That would be some sort of supply that would make us build faster, because now we pay cash, like for this Sukhoi jet, we paid cash,” he added, referring to the Sukhoi Su-30MK2 jets purchased from Russia seven years ago."

    Yes,a brand new Sukhoi repair centre like the Algerian facility to maintain their own 5 squadrons for a 5th world country called Uganda! Is that a genius idea or what,guys?
