    I think it is still used in Egypt and Saudi Arabia apparently used it in Yemen a few years ago. It is a useful weapon like the MOAB and should be used longer like Mk82 longevity.

    The NASR-9000 bomb is a thermobaric bomb weighing 9 tons and manufactured by the Egyptian military since the 1980's. This type of ordinance is commonly referred to as a fuel-air bomb and would be comparable to a BLU-82 "Daisy Cutter" or GBU-43/B "MOAB" in the U.S. inventory.

    I don't remember who was talking about the Scarab uav and arming it but it is actually a good idea now that I think about it. If you could reverse engineer the general stealthy design, replace the jet engine with a conventional turboprop, add landing gear, use modern communication systems and cameras, and arm it with AT-3 Saggers under the centerline it would be a killer drone that would be hard to detect.
    If Egypt has some of these drones unused it could be done with some major design changes but could still keep very stealthy features.

    Add some of these Egyptian produced missiles, or add laser guided ATGMs centerline.

    Wym? Im talking about UCAV against terrorists. This could easily be adapted into a stealthy cruise missile though also.

    sagger is radio controlled and its guidance is someone left and righting the joystick while trying to keep eye on the missile and target at the same time, now imagine you fire it while you are flying...

    There are SACLOS variants lol. It goes towards the center of the sight instead of MCLOS.

    It is a shitty missile, but its cheap, made in Egypt, and has relatively good penetration in new variants. (750mm after ERA)
    Imho, a laser guided missile would be better. This was just a suggestion.

    What about suicidal drones? For that UAV I think it need big structure change for your idea
    Stealth for terrorists is expensive and they haven't good equipment for that even if they have radars electronic war is cheaper than stealth technology (I think) I think cheap suicidal UAVs are useful too
