    Yes I know about those contracts in the US.. but the news is talking about Arab space scientists who live in the Arab world and already make satellites..meaning they all have extensive experience that will now be gathered to make a special first satellite in 3 years.. after that there are going to be more satellites..

    Nope. That's your interpretation. And we dont badmouth the land we are living and earning in like your counterparts in your west do. Hating, badmouthing the land they live and learn and say Muslims in India or Pakistan should live like this. You would have never been brought up with a single Hindu in your whole life. But in India we have Muslim classfriends, colleagues and 2 of my besties are Muslims. The problem comes with their Muslim leaders and clergy who are hell bent on promoting radicalism for vote purpose.

    Here for example Triple Talaq which is banned in Pakistan. And Nikah halala or divorce rules or age of marriage etc Pakistanis are living in west and accepting those "secular" rules while advocating those remain in India. What kinda hypocrisy is that? You explain.

    I do not say they do not have talents. This was response to a guy who hated India and wants their so called ASA to challange NASA/ESA without building any sufficient capacity in a short period.

    @Khafee can you explain how many Gangadeshis have been kicked out of UAE for openly barking against Muslims and Islam.

    Care to respond for the rest of my post? Or yea somehow managed to skip skillfully like most hypocratic muslims do?

    For few people kicked out (Yes I know people had been fired from jobs for speaking against Islam), lots of people are hired in. Yes, "Indians, Bharatvasis" are mostly preferred and hired wrt Pakistanis. Thanks to their attitude.

    See Dubai's police chief's tweet or interview for reference.

    I can say that we need to improve our cooperation in many field. Starting from cooperation between 2-3 countries first. Indonesia and Turkey, for instant, have started with several joint program like medium tank, Male UAV, and N245 passenger aircraft.

    I think OIC space agency is not really effective, I think it is better if some countries who have mastered on some thing give assistance on other countries who are still not yet reach that level. Pakistan for instant can help Indonesia on its rocket program. Of course there should be some thing that Indonesia give to Pakistan back.

    Yeah, I agree especially those who interned at NASA and ESA. There are many students who wish they could make bigger satellites like Jordanian students for example. In the future though the costd should be split among all states in my opinion.

    Egypt's former president (who worked for NASA) could have been a scientist on this project, but the Westerner did not like him and had him killed. Don't ever go for CIA colored revolution again. If they didn't, Morsi would be working on this as we write.

    Agree..and the best part is when each country will start make specific components of the satellites to be assembled in one centre..

    Looks nice.. what the specs ?

    Yes that is why I said there should be a core of leading countries. Pakistan has a lot experience in building various ballistic missiles both with solid and liquid motors. As I said Pakistan has a working design of an SLV but the project for shelved due to the lack of funds. If Muslim countries provide the funds then Pakistan can jump start the project and
    Don't be such a troll. Pakistan develops its own solid and liquid rockets. China does not provide any ballistic missile to Pakistan...Ever heard about MTCR and I'm sure an ignorant like you don't know anything about it.

    KAPLAN MT is a modern medium-weight tank being developed jointly by FNSS and PT Pindad. It is designed to offer high lethality in combination with superior tactical mobility.

    The first prototype of the Kaplan MT tank was exhibited during the 13th International Defence Industry Fair (IDEF) 2017 held in Istanbul in May. The tank made its public presence in Indonesia during a military parade on National Armed Forces Day in October.

    KAPLAN MT design and features
    The layout of the Kaplan MT tank resembles a standard main battle tank (MBT) with the driver at the centre of forward hull, turret in the middle and crew, as well as power-pack at the rear of the hull.

    The interior has been designed with major emphasis on crew ergonomics and various tactical and battlefield conditions such as driving, firing and loading / off-loading of ammunition. The driver’s position offers an enhanced field of view and convenient access to control panel and driving instruments.

    Crew enter / exit the vehicle through single-piece hatch covers mounted on the roof of the hull. The gunner and commander are provided with sighting systems for observation during the day / night, while the commander’s position is installed with a panoramic sight.

    The KAPLAN MT is also equipped with a battlefield management system (BMS), a wireless crew intercom system, a navigation system and an automatic fire extinguishing system.

    Armament aboard the medium-weight tank
    The tank is fitted with CMI Cockerill 3105 turret mounting a Cockerill 105mm high-pressure gun. The lightweight gun features an advanced autoloader to deliver rapid fire-power.

    The 105mm gun can fire NATO-standard 105mm ammunition and can engage targets at a maximum distance of 10km. The secondary weapon system includes a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun mounted to the left side of the main gun.

    Self-protection features of KAPLAN MT
    The MMWT provides STANAG 4569 Level 4 ballistic protection against 14.5mm armoured projectiles and 155mm shell splinters. It can withstand the explosion of 10kg TNT under the track and bottom of the hull.

    The tank can be hinged with add-on armour to increase the protection to STANAG 4569 Level 5 to sustain damage from 25mm armour piercing discarding sabot-tracer (APDS-T) rounds.

    The KAPLAN MT is also fitted with smoke grenade dischargers, a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) protection system and a laser warning system for increased survivability against hostile threats.

    Engine and mobility
    The vehicle is powered by a new-generation diesel engine coupled to a fully automatic electronic controlled transmission. It offers a power-to-weight ratio of 20hp/t, based on the configuration of protection system. The fuel is supplied from two separate fuel tanks.

    The power-pack is equipped with a cooling pack integrating an intelligent software-controlled hydraulic fan for improved torque and fuel economy. The auxiliary power unit aboard the tank will enable the operation of turret without the need for power from the engine. The advanced battery monitoring system further enables optimum power management.

    The anti-shock suspension system of KAPLAN MT features torsion bars with double pinned tracks offering high mobility on both urban environments and cross country conditions. Each side of the track includes six dual rubber-tired road wheels with the forward drive sprocket, idler and track-return rollers. The vehicle can operate in extreme temperatures ranging between -32°C and 55°C.

    The tank has a maximum road speed of 70km/h and a minimum operating range of 450km. It can negotiate a gradient and side slopes of 60% and 30% respectively. It can climb a vertical obstacle of 0.9m and can cross a trench of 2m.

    It really needs an APS. Pretty much any modern ATGM can take it out in a hit or two.
