BMI View: Sudan is almost wholly dependent on the import of military equipment and services. It sources considerable supplies of equipment from Russia and China, both of which are willing to furnish the regime with arms despite it being under a number of major international sanctions. A key driver behind the expansion of its military capabilities will remain the deteriorating situation in South Sudan and the ongoing violence between warring factions, opposition groups and Government authorities.

Sudan continues to be wholly dependent on the import of military equipment and services, sourcing considerable supplies from Russia and China. Most of Sudan's imported small arms, light weapons,
ammunition, rocket and grenade launchers have come from China in recent years, a trend we expect to continue as the need for large volumes of arms remains amidst continuing unrest. China has also reportedly provided training and technical support for Sudanese weapons production.
