According to some info from Serbian forums, at the start of this month Lazar 3 went to Egypt for testing. Vehicle sent was without any kind of armament, and it is expected that Egypt will integrate its own 30mm turret. According to some unconfirmed info Egypt is interested in 150 Lazar 3 vehicles, and Serbia is interested in 30mm turrets, since previously selected Russian turrets are no longer an option.

There is a video of Lazar being loaded to UR-FSE at Belgrade airport, and then flying in the direction of Egypt and turning off the transponder just before entering Egypt air space.

You can see on the image attached that something that looks like Denel Agrab 120mm Mobile Mortar Platform wasl loaded to this plane at the same time with Lazar 3.

Wow, that's crazy. Why do you think there is all this secrecy? Are there sanctions or restrictions on Serbia selling or any nation purchasing military equipment from Serbia?

Westerns and NATO countries don't have sanctions or problems with Serbia (maybe in the past). Even Serbia was interested to buy Bayraktar TB2 from Turkey and Rafales/Eurofighter from France or from the UK. So now they are "friends". Exactly the same thing to buy Belarussian hardware because till now I think Westerners didn't sanction Belarus.

You have any ideas about ALAS missile project? Because the last time I heard about it, a Serbian guy told me that Serbia cancelled the project. This project is so ambitious to be cancelled.

Serbia is not under any kind of sanctions, but have in mind that we are not the most popular country in the west right now. We are refusing to follow EU sanctions against Russia, and just last week we have also refused to join new EU restriction measures against Iran, being the only EU candidate country to do so. So even though we are not under any kind of sanctions, I would not be surprised by EU/NATO countries creating problems for us.

So they were a bit secretive, but as far as I can see measures like this are only effective against the general public, and it got leaked even to the general public :)

As far as I know the project was not canceled. ALAS XX is also a part of a modernization program for Serbian Army MLRS Oganj. Edepro, the company developing ALAS, recently released a new company website, and ALAS is there.

I believe that it’s related to this being the initial stage, for now it’s just testing, and they probably did not wish to get unnecessary publicity. Plus everything related to the situation the world is currently in…

Thanks for the reply, that makes a lot of sense. The Lazar 3 is excellent. If I am not mistaken, most IFV and APCs in the Egyptian army are up to 6x6s. This would be the 1st 8x8.

4 versions of the Lazar 3 from an IFV with a 30mm turret to an SAR MEDIVAC vehicle to a RALAS missile launcher.
