    UK expands SA80 rifle upgrade programme

    Stuck with it for at least another 15 years. Until there's change in generations. I guess the high unit price is offset by not needing to retrain and all the other stuff that needs to be done when you change rifles. Although there is an argument that the C8 could be introduced pretty easily...

    Egyptian Armed Forces

    I think you're talking about the photo I've attached here plus a couple of things from the videos. There's a couple issues here with skill at arms; 1) Firing positions The ultimate goal is to build a stable firing position. Building that position is made obvious by the marksmanship principles...

    Tunisian Armed Forces ( Pictures & Videos )

    It's two separate issues. First is Egyptian unwillingness to listen to allies in terms of adopting certain COIN tactics and strategies. That also includes several denied requests for the US (DoD or otherwise) to actually observe what's going on in the Sinai. The second is delegations from...

    Egyptian Armed Forces

    No. The Egyptian Romeo is far too small to accommodate a dry dock shelter for a Seal Delivery Vehicle. Only a couple of countries have that capability. But the Egyptian Romeo is modified with a Special Forces pay load bay (likely carrying a Diver Propulsion Vehicle) and dock for a inflatable...

    Egyptian Armed Forces

    Finally someone who knows what they're doing got a hand on kit. Still missing some things but a step in the right direction none the less. Double tube HMNVGs. PEQ/Laser light modules, rear mounted battery/counterweight, ear def/coms with high cut helmet, and low profile plate carriers. Long...

    Egyptian Armed Forces

    Read the articles and look at the dates of both. The Egyptian Foreign Ministry hoped Congress would allocate the full amount after pressure but it didn't. Then in May of 2018 the US withheld $300 million citing human rights issues, the Regeni case, and Egypt's refusal to pay for the medical...

    The end of cash flow financing has ended any large scale deals through the FMF programme. There are also restrictions on non counter terror related purchases through the FMF. Legislative action by Congress also means that the actual amount of aid to Egypt has dropped to below 1B USD. Any...

    Egypt’s Sisi Promises Rapid Growth

    The exiled leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood are struggling to keep the organisation abroad together. If they have trouble making centralised decisions there what makes you think they can do it in Egypt? The Rabia massacre and the subsequent crackdown eviscerated the group's middle and upper...

    Egyptian Armed Forces

    Nothing has been signed yet. Operational I would say well into the 2020s. I'm just hoping for a coherent force. A mishmash of helicopters, ships, and equipment would be disastrous.

    CZ Bren 2 GIGN

    Any reason the dude on the left is rocking a BFA and the rest aren't? Also notice the dude with the man packed ECM and a MP7. GIGN has been getting rather media friendly.

    Iraqi brigade swaps Abrams for T-90S tanks

    I literally said the Iraqi Abrams doesn't have DU in that post you quoted. Of course the US Abrams has better performance than most of the export models. The composite armour on the Iraqi M1 has already proven its resilience against modern atgm threats. The Iraqis received a export version of...

    Sinai: New Tricks Old Habits

    Sinai: New Tricks Old Habits Posted on June 16, 2018 by egygreenfly Operation Sinai 18 is the latest in a long line of “decisive” military operations by Egyptian Security Forces against terror groups in the restive Sinai Peninsula. Launched in February, and petering out in May, it is the...

    Iraqi brigade swaps Abrams for T-90S tanks

    Traditionally the most armoured parts of a tank are the front and the front side nearest the driver. The rear and belly are the least armoured because they rarely face the enemy and having the same thickness all across a tank results in a lead box that's far too heavy. So showing a Kornet going...

    The Algerian Armed Forces.

    The point is moot anyway. The Mistrals are nowhere near being operationally ready and their helicopter/escort fleets haven't been ordered yet. Right now it is about developing tactics and procedures for amphibious/deck ops until procurements start coming in. There's also the point that...
