Bulgaria?!Since the establishment of the indigenous Military Industry, Egypt seems to have profited on several occasions from the country’s collaboration with other countries in the related domain, with local companies mostly benefiting in terms of expanding/upgrading their facilities, as well as from state-of-the-art technology transfers, from major OEMs/Primes like:
- Embraer Brazil
- De Havilland (now Viking Air) Canada
- Pratt & Whitney Canada
- CATIC China
- Norinco Group China
- Dassault France
- Snecma France
- Aerospatiale (now part of Airbus Group) France
- Airbus Group
- ThyssenKrupp Germany
- Mercedes Germany
- Romarm Romania
- Aerostar Romania
- British Aerospace (now BAE SYSTEMS) UK
- Rolls-Royce UK
- General Electric (GE) USA
- Lockheed Martin USA
* There are also licensing or JV deals with Russia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Serbia, Croatia, Ukraine, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Belarus, Belgium, Finland and Spain..
** With the most likely potential ones being Japan and South Korea..
With a view to the future, it seems only logical for Egypt to aim to benefit much in the same way from other such collaborations and procurements, focusing more on the expansion of its arms production capabilities and portfolio, through medium or large scale industrial projects, to build related advanced defence products, under license or via local joint ventures..
Yeah, we should see the full video of testing at EDEX 2021, but this was at IDEX 2021.I think I remember seeing that. I wish they would put out a video of it being tested so that much more is known about it. but they don't practice that kinda thing.
No, it is more like Thales Catherine used in T-72 and T-90. Basically it is going to be used for looking for and engaging the targets with ATGMs I assume. We will see more details in EDEX, but I hope it will replace the obsolete systems in service like M901 ITV.You mean like these

The system on the far right is the D69 it looks similar to the Catherine imagers pictured above but larger

It ideally should be as good as the Catherine imager used in the T-72s and T-90s but that is yet to be seen.
