Passive Surveillance ESM Tracker (PET) VERA-NG is the most advanced Passive Surveillance System utilizing the multilateration Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) principle.

The unique system is designed for detection, localization, tracking and identification of the air, ground and naval targets as well as exceptional pulse and continuous wave signal analysis.

VERA-NG supports cross-border, long-term and long-range surveillance without alerting neighbouring nations. The system emits zero electromagnetic energy making it ‘invisible‘, i. e. it sees without being seen. It also provides strategic ELINT (Electronic Intelligence) information to collect, process and evaluate the ESM data for reference database.

Are they trying to set up a ToT contract for the L-39NG? IIRC, they had several squadrons of the L-59E Albatross trainer for a while. Wiki isn't updated very well they show 1 L-39 lmao. They most definitely still have them and use them as trainers along with perhaps the K-8s.

Yes with new L-39NG.. but With the Italian mega deal or the US proposal for an advanced trainer.. it will be near impossible..

DITA self-propelled 155 mm howitzer seems to be a good choice though,, if it comes with TOT..

That's one explosion I don't think many of us would mind taking right in the kisser lmao.

Now they're getting the Czechs involved? Whats promising is the dita howitzer and the new trainers, man this is more than I expected 😍
Ever since the armed forces went on this modernization blitzkrieg, all these countries with stuff to offer that didn't deal with Egypt during that phase were watching on the sidelines in shock and were probably assuming Egypt was going to default on payments to one supplier or another and were just waiting for that time to come but it never did. Now they're all lining up at the door and on the sidewalk around the block to get a piece of the action. All this while now Egypt has all the purchase power to ask for nothing but ToT along with whatever it chooses and if there's any resistance, sayonara they move on. You gotta love the way they pulled this all off. Sisi and co, just masters while all the bitches that were ragging on him have shut TFU. :lol:

I'm as enthusiastic as you are.. just check the number of deals and sub-deals involved..

-Deals with Italy
-Deals with France
-Deals with South Korea
-Deals with the US
-Deals with Germany
-Deals with Russia
-Deals with Belarus
-Deals with Czech Republic
-Deals with Serbia
-Deals with the UAE
-Deals with China
-Deals with Pakistan
-Deals with England
-Deals with Greece

And most likely others we are not aware of!

With the exception of the GB and Greece deals that involves only naval missiles or small patrol crafts.. all the other deals are mega ones.. Each involving dozens of weapon systems and their technologies that are to be transferred to Egypt's military industries..

You beat me to it. I was actually going to make a list of the platforms themselves which I can still do, as far as the ones they've already committed to and have or are on their way. It's most impressive without a doubt. Some they'll have to move away from and seek other types & sources such as the Type 209s. We'll also have to see what the Germans allowed on the 4 Mekos and if any systems are off limits and under weaponized because of that cancer next door. But it sounds like they're already ahead of the curve on that process anyway, so that's a good thing.
