Saudi Arabia To Acquire Weapons from Russia
Russian anti-tank missiles, rocket and grenade launchers and assault rifles to be produced in Saudi Arabia.
11 October 2017
Saudi Arabian Military Industries and the Russian government have agreed the transfer of technology for local production of the TOS -1A Multiple Rocket Launcher
Saudi Arabia has signed an agreement with Russia’s ROSOBORONEXPORT to acquire weapon systems, which will be manufactured and sustained locally in the kingdom.
The agreement forms part of Saudi Arabian Military Industries’ (SAMI’s) mandate to act as a catalyst for localising 50% of Saudi Arabia’s military procurement spending by 2030 as set out in the kingdom’s ambitious Vision 2030 plan to diversify the local economy away from oil.
In a memorandum of understanding (MOU), Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Defence agreed to procure the S-400 air defence system, the Kornet-EM system, the TOS-1A, the AGS-30 and the Kalashnikov AK-103 from state-owned ROSOBORONEXPORT.
The MOU includes the transfer of technology for the local production of the Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) system, the TOS-1A advanced multiple rocket launcher and AGS-30 automatic grenade launchers with grenades. In addition, the parties will co-operate to localise the manufacturing and sustainment of parts of the S-400 air defence system.
The General Terms Contract covers the local production of the Kalashnikov AK-103 and its ammunition, which will contribute to raising the local content and enhancing self-sufficiency in line with the objectives set out in Vision 2030.
Educational and training programmes for Saudi nationals to ensure the sustainability and development of the military industries sector in Saudi Arabia are also included in the agreements, which are expected to have tangible economic contributions and create hundreds of direct jobs. It will also transfer cutting-edge technologies that will act as a catalyst for localizing 50% of the kingdom’s military spending.
SAMI, which is wholly government owned, will establish companies through joint ventures with global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as co-operating with local military companies.
HRH Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense said: “While the kingdom is one of the world’s top five spenders on security and defence overall, only around two percent of our military procurement is domestic.”
Currently, Saudi Arabia is the world’s second largest importer of weapons with a 7% global market share behind India (14%), according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
The UK and the US are the principal arms suppliers to Saudi Arabia, but the establishment of SAMI is an attempt by the kingdom to reduce its dependence on foreign military sales, which have come under harsher scrutiny recently due to the kingdom’s military operations in Yemen, where weapons supplied by foreign countries have been implicated in civilian deaths and casualties.

Cooperation between KACST Saudi Arabia and the Ukrainian Design Office Yuzhnoye started from 2014 until 2018 summarized in brief:
1- Transfer the technology of a tactical missile complex called Grom-2, the manufacture of the entire complex of the complex, in addition to the design of the missile test facility.
2 - Transfer of unmanned aircraft designs of UAV's in addition to the materials that enter the manufacture.
3 - transfer of designs and assembly space aircraft in full.
4 - transfer designs and the space complex of the missile Mayak-22 to transmit satellites and the technical and tactical aids to launch it fully.
1- The transfer of two types of electric power generators using the Ramjet technology full studies and related designs.
1 - Transfer of designs of the tactical and technical facility that helps to test UAV's unmanned aircraft.
2 - Purchase of missile launchers for Tactical OTR space missiles in addition to the purchase of warhead designs for Grom-2
3 - Purchase the designs of the tactical and mechanical missile test and auxiliary equipment to launch and fully test them.
4 - Transfer of the technology of motors capsule designed from fiber carbon.
5. The transfer of technical assistance equipment in the testing of solid fuel engines technically and mechanically as well as auxiliary equipment for maintenance and sustainability. Grom-2.
6. Transfer of the internal space navigation systems technology.
7. Transfer of test designs for electromechanical equipment for solid fuel engines. Grom-2.
8. Transmission of electric aerodynamic navigation technology.
9 - Transfer of chassis technology and structures of missiles lunch vehicles
10- Transfer of the technology of the designs of the Mechanical, technical and electric aerodynamic navigation test facility.
11- Transmission of pneumatic pumps.
12 - transfer of the technology combining short-range and medium-range air-defence missiles.
1 - Transfer of technology of cruise missiles: subsonic cruise missiles in full.
I have noticed Ukraine has been cooperating with Arab countries more often. Just this past year a transfer of technology between Jordan and Ukraine for production of the Jadara Terminator has commenced. Ukraine can offer a lot for TOT and licensed production and cooperation is very beneficial.

Prince Sultan Defense Studies and Research Center (PSDSARC) from Saudi Arabia was present at IDEX 2019 to present its Shaheen SH-01, a vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), designed for surveillance, reconnaissance and transport applications. The system is able to takeoff as well from land as ships.
Made from a light-weight, carbon composite structure, this UAS has four electric motors, rotating wings for efficiency and tilt wing capability. Wings and tails are removable for transportation.
SH-01 can go to a maximum altitude of 3000m, for a maximum endurance of 3 hours. It has a stabilized EO/IR Day-Night vision and object scanning & tracking system. Communications are made with a data link S/C Band(Omni), for a communication range of 50 km.
Navigation and flight control are operated with a redundant navigation and flight control computer. It features a GPS/INS based navigation with air-data assist and flight director (Airspeed, Altitude, Heading).
