Since 2016, the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization has partnered with the Egyptian Armed Forces to defeat Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), which remain a top threat to countering terrorist groups. In one year, IED incidents in Egypt dropped by 67%!

Is there an article on this?

Because I know there's a joint training program for Egyptian EOD personnel that's run with the US in Cairo. Unsure if this is its actual designation or if this is something else.

Plus the statistic is really interesting. We have seen damage to IS Sinai's IED network. Will feature in my next Sinai piece if I can manage actually getting out there.

Aywa ya basha. You probably know the original tweet was from the US embassy in Cairo and they didn't link any article to it, so at first I was reluctant to post this but I figured the source is well known to be very credible of course, so I went with it and the other thing is that statistic is amazing! So I wanted to share it so that people can see the success that is going on AND ALSO, it contradicts that one article (I forget who it was, maybe the NY Times) which claimed that the Egyptian Armed Forces weren't willing to learn any COIN or anti-terrorism tactics that were offered from the US and all that baloney. Well, guess what, obviously that was a load of poopoo just like their Israelis bombing in Sinai and all that rubbish.

This was the tweet from the US embassy which took it from
#USSupportforEgypt


And here is the Combat Integration Support Team (CIST) Global IED Report

https://publicintelligence.net/jida-global-ied-reports-june-2016/

You'll have to download the file which is about 163 pages.

The following is a collection of all Combat Integration Support Team (CIST) Global IED Reports for the month of June 2016. The reports are produced by the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Agency, formerly the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO). The reports were obtained from the website of the NATO Counter Improvised Explosive Devices Centre Of Excelence, though they are not normally distributed publicly.

This document was prepared in order to facilitate a greater understanding of the nature and scope of threats and hazards related to the estimated 500+ monthly IED events worldwide. It is provided to aid in the timely identification and development of appropriate actions, priorities and follow-on measures.

Let us know when you finish the piece.

Maybe they're both being built simultaneously and it's cheaper and easier to use one crane for both ships, rather than put them longitudinally and use twice as many cranes and heavy equipment.
Whatever they are, they're MUCH bigger than the Gowind which is that darker grey under the crane in the dry dock. The bows and the sterns are much rounder on those ships too, compared to the much pointier bows and squarer sterns like on the Gowind and most frigates. Sterns being squarer for more area to accommodate helicopters landing and taking off etc. They almost look like cruise ships.

Let's go, bring the next one in, got 4 total under this contract and need at least 4 more after that. The speed they put this one together is exceptional, a sign of superb ship-building capabilities in Egypt and should move to another level. Expand that drydock to accommodate 2 ships being built at once. That'll produce more jobs and speed up the process so they can start building frigates also, not just corvettes.

We gotta get past this tragedy, though.

Anyone know what that barrel or muzzle is on the manned turret of the M-60A3? Interesting modification, maybe some type of ATG or even a flamethrower?

More cretin crunching on the western border.







Almost ready for launch and then sea trials.
