    In the deal with Russia, there was an option to order 100 more T-90 tanks, in which it seems that this second batch would be delivered as well.

    2) 400+ T-72 Tanks

    Based on wikipedia, we have 542-636 T-72A, T-72B and T-72 Aslan tanks.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-72_op...s_and_variants
    Around 100 of T-72 tanks are upgraded to the Aslan Standard. It was done by a 54 million dollar contract with Elbit.
    In fact, Azerbaijan received about 300 T-72 tanks after collapse of Soviet Union. 153 T-72s were bought from Belarus in two separate deals, 62 T-72s were bought from Russia, and 48 T-72s were bought from Ukraine.
    During Karabagh war, 178 T-72s lost and 23 T-72s captured. Overall the wikipedia’s statistics make sense if we exclude the tanks lost/captured during karabagh war.
    Multiple countries including Russia, have proposed to upgrade the rest of T-72 fleet as well.

    3) ~100 T-55 tanks, 150 units bought from Ukraine

    4) There was some news about purchasing T-80U and T-84 by Azerbaijan, but, in fact, Azerbaijan purchased T-90S instead of these two Ukrainian made tanks.

    5) It seems that Azerbaijan is interested in buying Altay tank from Turkey, after starting its mass production in Turkey.
