    Roketsan's new ammunition tested on the Akıncı UAV

    Hmm seems better at fixed or semi fixed than moving targets at long ranges at least.

    Roketsan's new ammunition tested on the Akıncı UAV

    How? I thought laser designation is limited to about 20km or so? So wouldn't it have to drop and be in range to designate?

    Pakistan's Airborne Early Warning and Control Aircrafts.

    No they didnt, they got hardware of the plane no software its useless. Bombadier doesnt have software only plane and radar hardware and that doesn't provide much data.

    Calidus UAE B-350 9 ton turboprop attack aircraft

    @T-SaGe Agree to disagree here, I think there is still some room for these in my opinion although you are correct UAVs are making headway to an extent. I think UAE maybe developing UCAVs but can't be sure these do look like subsystems for them though. I looked up Baykar subsystems and these...

    Calidus UAE B-350 9 ton turboprop attack aircraft

    It is useful for SOCOM especially imo which is why the USA wants 75 turboprop CAS aicraft, and I have also thought it could be a standoff missile launching platform. It is also very easy to operate, you don't need as much infrastructure to set it up like GCS, RF links etc. Payload on B-350...

    Pakistan's Airborne Early Warning and Control Aircrafts.

    GlobalEye is a beast, UAE bought 5 of them which makes for a huge force multiplier and constant AWACS coverage against all threats.

    Calidus UAE B-350 9 ton turboprop attack aircraft

    Yes, Turkey is doing that but the UAE is not exactly close with them. The Muslim world isn't some monolithic entity that shares common goals. Even then they will likely rely on foreign critical subsystems like engines for the foreseeable future. Again, Turboprops can be useful and can likely...

    Calidus UAE B-350 9 ton turboprop attack aircraft

    My friend, UAE has 10 million people and is 40 years old do you really expect the to be able to make a 6th gen fighter or are you just delusional? Paying somebody to develop a subsystem is fairly common when you have no experience designing it yourself. You underestimate the usefulness of...

    Calidus UAE B-350 9 ton turboprop attack aircraft

    This is a two seat turboprop aircraft under development by Calidus UAE that will have a takeoff weight of 9 tons, a wingspan of 16 meters, and a PW127 engine with 2600 Horsepower. CHARVÁT AXL won the contract for the development and production of the landing gear for the CALIDUS B-350...

    MADE IN UAE

    @The SC Calidus, the company that makes the B-250 is supposedly working on a much larger aircraft called the B-350 and checking Linkedins that data backs that up. A powerplant engineer is doing work on a PW127 for the B-350 which has 2600 HP compared to the B-250 with 1500 HP which will allow...

    For the first time in history Saudi deploys female security officers at Makkah’s Grand mosque

    Or have batons and tasers which they likely don't.

    Cutting edge Technology generated by the Islamic nations in the middle east

    I knew about this missile bro, but here the glide munition detaches during flight on TRGL-230 the warhead doesn't detach that is what is unique about the missile.

    Iranian drones for the first time since Korean war deprive US from air superiority.

    All I'm saying is that with every advancement there is a counter, laser systems seem promising and GPS spoofing. It is a game of cat and mouse, every advancement leads to a counter and that is a never ending cycle of human nature. Who knows what kind of systems will be used in 20, 30, 40, 50...

    Halcon UAE made rocket artillery

    I don't know about air, it lacks the velocity for that but the solid rocket design and experience will be useful for long range air defense missiles that I know are being conceptualized. Land, yeah this will be really useful and accurate for destruction of targets and likely pretty cheap. It...

    Cutting edge Technology generated by the Islamic nations in the middle east

    Kind of unique concept of a rocket with a laser guided glide munition that detaches and finds target that is being designated by laser. @aryobarzan This is what South African expertise, and large funding gets you. There are a lot of Emirati local Junior engineers, but the principle and...

    MADE IN UAE

    80, 55, and 42 km range rocket artillery that is laser guided terminally, if troops are pinned down and air support is limited this is a good option for precise targeting of enemies. https://media-files.edgegroup.ae/s3fs-public/2021-02/DS25-GLER80_Web.pdf @T-SaGe This may interest you, it...

    Test pilot sees China's J-20 to get 2D thrust vectoring nozzles,surpassing the F-22

    F-22 was too expensive, and other countries couldn't even come up with competitors for it at the time. USAF 4.5 gen fleet could destroy most countries militaries.

    Iranian drones for the first time since Korean war deprive US from air superiority.

    There will be a way to counter these drones quite easily just jam GPS, and use spoofing EW against drones.
