    Sami presents the Air Defense System VL MICA during the Paris Exhibition 2019

    Background:

    The Saudi Military Industries Company (SAMI) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding establishing a commercial entity under the joint venture with Thales, a French company.

    The first joint venture with Thales includes several areas: short-range air defense radars, anti-missiles, command and control systems (C2), multi-mission rockets, guided grenade launchers and interconnection systems, as well as investment in facilities and equipment within the domestic market by Localization of up to 70%, while will generate about 2,000 direct and indirect jobs for Saudi youth.

    https://www.spa.gov.sa/1879778

    Saudi Arabia's long-term plan in 10 years is that the MICA become the core of its short-range air defense system..
    And the process of localisation is very impressive because the numbers needed is very huge and may reach 100 ...



    Vertical Launch MICA (VL MICA) is a short range, ground based air defence system deploying the MICA fire-and-forget missile, currently the only missile in the world capable of being fitted with either a heatseeking homing head (VL MICA IR) or with an active radar (VL MICA RF).

    This unique capability ensures an outstanding kill probability, even in severe IRCM-ECM environments.

    Organisation of a typical VL MICA unit is based on a vehicle-mounted shelter-protected Tactical Operations Centre (TOC) also known as the Platoon Command Post (PCP). This is capable of carrying out all Command, Control and Coordination functions, including real-time engagement, mission planning, system monitoring and connection with the higher level of command.

    The TOC remotely controls a tri-dimensional radar mounted on a separate vehicle and three to six vertical launcher units also mounted on vehicles.

    The VL MICA system design ensures ease of deployment, facilitates integration within a global air defence network, minimizes the need for personnel and reduces the logistic footprint and Life Cycle Cost.

    KFX is a bit short of being a 5th generation fighter.. the US refused to sell Sk some very sophisticated components.. instead they had them buy the F-35..
    There is already an MOU about new British planes, fighters and drones..
