Albania is looking to build a rather modest small professional army. We don't need a big army. I think thats a waste of money anyway.
For the next few years our airforce are going to be helicopters. A few weeks ago we signed a document with NATO to protect & maintain our air space. We have a small navy that could take care of illegal activities. Instead of tanks, Albania is looking to buy some new APCs. Other than that we don't expect the nonexistant Montenegrin navy to invade us. Serbia after the bombardment is not going to be a problem either. So there really is no use for wasting money on military. When they can be used for more important things.
Albania has put out of use AK-47 and TT-33. Replacing AKS-47 as shown in the video with HK-416. Also replacing TT-33 with P-8. AK's will only be used by the regular army and police.
