Armor: September 30, 2004


Jordan is donating 250 armored vehicles, as well as training, to the Iraqi Civil Intervention Force. The Jordanians are training the Iraqi unit to operate as something of a super-SWAT organization, to deal with heavily armed anti-government forces. The Jordanians are supplying 50 Ukrainian made BTR-94 8x8 armored cars, 100 U.S. made M-113A1 armored personnel carriers and 100 British made Spartan tracked scout vehicles. The 16 ton BTR-94 comes with twin 23mm cannon. The eight ton Spartan and 11 ton M-113A1 usually just have machine-guns.
