I should make a compilation soon, but iirc something like 10-15 different missiles being worked on at the same time as far as we know.

We should see about 10 new missiles and other systems at Dubai airshow, and some relating to laser technology but not sure exactly what type of laser systems.
They are also working on gazillion of other things like extensive drone sub-families, other technologies and ventures if you could cover all of Halcon projects could be a msssive thread

UAE Army established JTAC school as a substitute for American support

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwia2sqIzN_wAhWEh_0HHftEDdUQFjAAegQIAhAD&url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/resrep26685&usg=AOvVaw3OHktDGr5nim_QGUldlERs






" JTAC " or" Joint Terminal Attack Controller"..They are SOF responsible for controlling, correcting, and directing aviation fire during Close Air Support CAS missions Or any other air offensive operations through their advanced positions on the front lines of battle or within the depth of the enemy
This name belongs to the US Army and NATO forces..

Operations of controlling and directing fire and controlling the fire of the friendly attack aircraft..
This is to ensure the highest possible accuracy in hitting targets and without causing any collateral damage against friendly forces or against civilians or facilities..

The UAE has insisted that it have its own JTACs certified to NATO standards, and it has even established its own JTAC school manned by American, Australian, and European instructors..

One of the more remarkable achievements of the UAE armed forces has been their handling of joint terminal attack controllers (JTACs) personnel who direct close air support strikes from the ground. This is an extremely important and demanding mission..

Few militaries do it well, and many American allies leave it to US personnel..In NATO Europe, there is only one JTAC school, ..yet the UAE has its own..The Emirati JTACs are NATO-certified and by all accounts excellent..

* Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia have JTAC units too..

Most definitely. I actually posted a bunch of pics of them during Bright Star with US & Egyptian ground units conducting JTAC missions to pairs of EAF F-16 who were dropping live ordinance. That thread is massive so finding the pics would literally take a day! And it's funny because one of the longtime members just before that claimed the EAF didn't have JTAC training or even units and it was pretty funny the next day either DoD or EGY Army Spokesperson posted the pics of the back of the two fellas with JTAC on the back of their shirts lool.

I didn't rub it in but I did lol it and he took it with good humor. I was surprised he didn't know, though. They've had special JTAC units since the late 90s.

@Philip the Arab @The SC
What you think about it?
We have many retired jet aircrafts in Arab world
Many MIGs many f5 many retired jets
You know it Soviets made an antiship missile by mig fighter
Azerbaijan used unmanned antonov an 2 against Armenia
Us using unmanned fighters as targets
I hate profusion
We can use those aircrafts or their engines so why they are just stored
It make me mad

I don't think anti ship is needed, but I like the idea of decoy fighter UAVs converted from older fighters.

They can be good decoys for enemy SAMs to expose themselves and get hit by a missile allowing for the real assets to take out the enemy SAMs and fighters.

We are not United States they have huge fleet of aircrafts to make them as targets
We can make them unmanned or use their engines even for barbeque but don't wasting them

As in re-constructing the engines? But it is not sure it can support modern day fighter jet but nonetheless they could be modified and studied...

Not for modern day fighters I said an unmanned fighter as antiship missile or using engines for various things I believe jet engine is gold

This small jet engine can be a very effective solution for MALE UCAVs and long rage cruise missiles.
Don't know what's the cost per engine is?

Very impressive. We're all these engines designed and made in UAE? What is the supply line for materials and parts?
Design is UAE based with South African senior engineers leading junior local engineers.

Supply line and parts is unknown, I assume they use a cnc machine to manufacture the engine parts but buy the raw materials from a foreign source.
This is exactly what I was thinking it could be good for a MALE UCAV
Too small, a future version with higher lifetime, and strengthen materials could in theory work though.

Must be low enough that it is cost efficient for them to produce in country I suppose. It will be used on multiple platforms including kamikaze UAV, and CM.

They could make it potentailly large enough for MALE UAV
