    Good news, simple is still useful today. I think recoilless rifles have the best chance for the future in combating APS due to high speed of projectile.

    The Ukrainian government has received a delegation of senior military officials from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia headed by Assistant Saudi Defense Minister Lieutenant General Pilot Muhammad bin Abdullah Al-Ayesh, who is one of the senior military personnel in the Kingdom.

    Al-Ayesh was the highest commander of the Royal Saudi Air Force, and received a number of government awards from the governments of Kuwait, France, and the United States.
    This visit is the highest visit of the Saudi Ministry of Defense to Ukraine in the history of full relations in the military-technical field.

    The delegation was received by Mikhail Morozov, Deputy Director General of Marketing and Sales. The meeting took place as part of the expansion of military-technical cooperation between the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Defense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Among the schedule of the delegation’s visit, which is composed of a military attaché, generals and officers from the office of the Military Adviser and the Ministry of Defense in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Antonov government airport in Gostomel, where there is the plane building factory for the Antnov Airlines, especially the two giant Ruslan and Maria planes.

    Delegates also showed other military equipment belonging to state government institutions that they brought specifically for the parade.

    Ukraine and Saudi Arabia will expand international defense cooperation. The agreement was reached during joint working meetings between the official delegations of the Ministries of Defense and the Office of the Military Attaché in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with representatives of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense and the Ukroboronprom Group of Companies.

    The agreement to expand cooperation was signed on February 5, 2020 between Assistant Minister of Defense Lieutenant-General Mohamed El-Ayesh and Ukrainian Minister of Defense Andrei Zagorodnyuk.

    Also, as part of the visit to the territory of the government institution Antonov, a show of promising serial weapons was organized, as it was organized by private exporters in the Ukroboronprom - GP SVTF Progress and GP GVVP Spetstekhnoexport.

    The companies have provided the delegations of the Ministry of Defense in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the latest developments in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles and means to combat them, radar systems and electronic warfare systems, Antonov transport aircraft, armored cars, small arms, as well as the development of the State Design Committee, "Luch" office, In particular, the Neptune RK-360MTs missile system, the Alder system, and the RK-10 high-precision missiles, ATGM "Stugna" and "Corsair".

    It should be noted that Saudi Arabia is an important defense partner of Ukraine and is buying Ukrainian weapons. These systems are the domestic anti-tank missiles from GosKKB Luch. As of 2020, hundreds of "Stugna" ATGMs and more than 1,000 "Korsar" missiles totaling more than $ 165 million have been supplied.

    Meanwhile, due to the growing interest of the Saudi delegation in Neptune and Alder missile systems, the government committee of the Design Bureau "Luch", UAV Raybird-3 from Skyeton, introduced the family of 80K6 radars from "Iskra" and electronic warfare systems.

    Signing the agreement between the Cabinet of Ukraine and the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on cooperation in the defense sector and launching new and joint projects in various fields of cooperation.


    The agreement provides new opportunities for military technical cooperation and allows for expansion of defense cooperation between the two countries in a field such as the defense industry, information technology, education, and military medicine.


    Also during the visit, on the territory of the State Enterprise “Antonov”, there was a display of serial and promising weapons samples

    Delegations of the Ministry of Defense of Saudi Arabia were demonstrated the latest developments in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles and anti-aircraft vehicles, radar and EW systems, Antonov transport aircraft, armored vehicles, small arms, and the development of SSC, Luk, -360MC "Neptune", "Alder", high-precision rockets RK-10, PTRK "Stugna" and "Corsair

    Grom-2 is a Tactical Ballistic Missile, which can operate with several variable warheads including cluster and high explosive warheads.

    In addition, the steering system is able to reach its target in different climates, with a CEP rate of only 5 meters.

    The missile is capable of carrying 480 kg as a conventional warhead or 54 cluster munitions (7.5 kg each).

    The missile has a ballistic flight pattern between an altitude of 11 - 50 km from the surface of the earth and thanks to the distinctive design and flight system the missile is capable of avoiding and hiding from air defense systems.

    Saudi Arabia is in the middle of receiving first components of the Grom-2 ballistic missile, which has been jointly developed by King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) and Ukrainian Yuzhnoye Design Office, to conducts first firing test in September or October 2019, a Saudi military source told Defence Blog on 3 January.

    The first batch of engines, spare parts and different conventional warheads were delivered to Saudi Arabia for the first phase of the test programme,” said the source, adding that the Saudi Arabian Armed Forces is expected to have the first Grom-2 ballistic missile system ready for use by 2022

    Although the two seem like strange allies, Ukraine and Saudi Arabia have cooperated on a number of aerospace projects, including the Grom-2 tactical ballistic missile, a scientific sounding rocket, a traditional medium-size satellite launcher, and an anti-aircraft missile

    The Grom-2 is equivalent to the Russian Iskander short-range ballistic missile.
