    Actually I think that the government is very concerned about an invasion of Sri Lanka from the planet Mars..........

    lets hope ''Sophisticated'' means new vehicles with latest technology.

    Lets take a peaceful country we all know. Singapore. Just Google search "defence spending singapore' and see what you get. This is called frogs in the well syndrome.

    kara Wednesday, 15 December 2010 11:58 AM

    Russia is another great country to do business with. No accountability, no one to question the governance and plenty of kick-bags!

    THE JUDGE Wednesday, 15 December 2010 01:47 PM

    I thought the WAR was over in Sri Lanka. What for the new purchases. Any commission involved?

    ACG Wednesday, 15 December 2010 01:56 PM

    Use this money for rehabilitation of disabled soldiers.

    Wenu Wednesday, 15 December 2010 02:56 PM

    Sri Lanka is trying to become a super power or what? It seems like Rajapaksha believes in making voters happy by creating the war mentality and nothing else.

    Reggie Wednesday, 15 December 2010 02:59 PM

    Are these to guard the Rajapakse family - especially Gotabaya. Afraid of Sarath Fonseka are you ????

    Reggie Wednesday, 15 December 2010 03:01 PM

    This is sickening. When the cost of living is unbearable the emperor and his family needs arms for protect themselves.

    TMA Wednesday, 15 December 2010 10:18 AM

    Good one bro. I'm not surpried if it happens. Possibly Ruskis wud use us 2 attack West

    The King of Sri lanka wants to protect his FORT

    Kelby Wednesday, 15 December 2010 05:30 PM

    These guys have no money to feed their own people. As they claim the war is over, why the need of new vehicles? Or are they preparing that Praba might reborn?

    siva Wednesday, 15 December 2010 05:30 PM

    when they come here they may never move and we may not have the required skilld to make them move as they will be discred ones well painted

    pasel Wednesday, 15 December 2010 08:47 PM

    gamaya_1 Thursday, 16 December 2010 04:52 AM

    very good. Let's buy all Russian rubbish and display in SL to Americans. We can develop the tourism.

    C.J Thursday, 16 December 2010 05:09 AM

    Have regard for disable soliders who fought for the motherland just invest money on them without waisting tax payers money on few individuals for their well being.

    Subha Thursday, 16 December 2010 07:51 AM

    We make armoured vehicles in SL, right? Why do we need to import? Just upgrade the 'Unicorn'.

    TRUTH Wednesday, 15 December 2010 08:03 AM

    YES SIR.... GET ALL THE SOPHISTICATED ARMS. LETS BE PREPAIRED TO ATTACK THE WEST AND USA

    malkanthi Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:16 AM

    War is just over, looks like preparations are being made for an international war.

    Pokirissa Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:13 AM

    War is over Sir. Why do we need to expand our military more ? I'm sure theres tons of vehicles, weapons etc left over from the just concluded war....can't we use them for another few good years ?

    sarath k Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:25 AM

    TP Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:31 AM

    Sekara Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:42 AM

    As the War is over. Why do we need these weapons? This money can be better use for national development.

    I Hussein Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:54 AM

    What for?

    Appuwa Wednesday, 15 December 2010 06:59 AM

    Hmm... are we preparing for some big war?

    Heamu Wednesday, 15 December 2010 08:57 AM

    It looks like MR wants to create a another Prakaran and fight with him. People have to remember that MR is responsible about 51% creating the last Prabakaran.

    u matta Wednesday, 15 December 2010 09:51 AM

    Negative comments? its a negative move at this time. Sophisticated armoured vehicles for what? to crush oppositions/protesters &demos?

    Cobra Wednesday, 15 December 2010 09:55 AM

    Its like the beggar who won a lottery-he goes to town and buys everything under the sun except what he really needs!!!!!!

    w.g.l Wednesday, 15 December 2010 09:55 AM

    kappetipola Wednesday, 15 December 2010 09:59 AM

    way to go sri lanka ARMY .....

    lankaputha Wednesday, 15 December 2010 10:08 AM

    The best way to be in peace is to have the best collection of weapons.. But please no more commission business. We need more money to spend on food than buying Benz cars

    seetha Wednesday, 15 December 2010 10:10 AM

    Pls dont buy armoured vehicles. we dont have war. give consession to poor by that money. if you are really interested on those vehicles pls buy one or two by your private money and keep at your home.
