It is absolutely understandable that Serbia wants to do this sell. Serbia has no money for the maintenance of these weapons but you can sell them for a good price to countries in the Middle East or in the Arabic countries. If they wait with the sell and in the near future there is no war, you can only lose a lot of money which is needed by the population. Take a look at the pictures and you will know that such military equipment is nearly useless if you have not a appropriate maintenance.

Well Serbia is taking a risk by selling these military equipment in such hostile times in the region. I hope Serbia will not be in any future conflicts that may require these weapons. On the other hand if they have no use for them then selling them will be a bonus for the economy.

Exactly. I wonder if Serbia will have enough military equipment left for future battles. They're surrounded by terrorists and Russia surely has designs on former Soviet territories in the Balkans. Though I understand the government's need for more income sources, I hope they still continue to fortify their defense for the protection of the citizens.
