Notes

    1 - As of 2000, it was unclear how many of these vehicles were operational. The IISS Military Balance suggested that only ~18 were in service.

    2 - As of 2000, it was unclear how many of these vehicles were operational. The fluctuations in numbers in the IISS Military Balance between 1990, 1995, and 2000 suggest that the 2000 might indicate weapons in storage.
