The Skyknight air defense missile is not the same as the Denel Cheetah missile recently designed by South African engineers but it is bigger and different..

The main design engineer for the SkyKnight worked on the Denel cheetas radar seeker and other electronic parts and was contracted to design it for Halcon. It is different and larger you are correct though.

@JamD we could've been doing a lot of the same stuff UAE is right now, especially in collaboration with the South Africans. But in Pakistan we lack "viyyun" (vision), "saahnse" (science) and laaa-aardar (law and order) to make it happen. What will it take to get viyyun, saahnse and laa?

Don't worry bhai once the UAE is done with the engineers you can have them but make sure you pay them 100k dollars a year.:-)

As you know, Pakistan's defense sector got a major boost during Musharraf rule, we could have done it with or without South Africa. Unfortunately our priorities were his resignation and what followed is history.

UAE is doing collaborations with all. Seems they are planning to go full steam ahead.
This one was from last year but it was also at the IDEX

Now this is some show. What are the details?
