I don’t know any specifics honestly and many members here disagree with it anyway.

I don’t care about exports or cooperation really more about indigenous development for the UAE independently especially in missile technology.

Once they develop an air to air and ballistic missile they will have a full lineup that can help them achieve independence and not have to rely on inferior systems from America/EU/Russia.
Mesh fahem asdak eh?

I would rather see Egypt develop all its own systems itself do you know what I mean.
True but first you need to localizing to gain experience so then we can build an indigenous equpments with inspiration of previous JV projects. That's why the next EDEX-2023, it would be specialized for smart munitions so PGM and missiles. Not comparing Egypt to China but the chinese defense industry was boosted because the massive ToT donated by Israel and NATO espically France.

Here are some updates, according to EDGE:

  • HUNTER-2S: The HUNTER 2-S, a tube-launched swarming drone system, is under development, with the first flight test set to commence in 2023 and production by 2025.
  • QX: In the QX family of drones, QX-2 has made the most progress. It has participated in several customer trials, reaching the stage of rapid prototyping to continue testing various functionalities. It will be in production in the first quarter of 2023. Trials for QX-1, QX-3, and QX-4 are set to follow in later phases. QX-5 and QX-6 are currently under development. The QX (1-4) are kamikaze drones, whereby QX-1 is micro quadcopter UAV; QX-2 mini-UAV but has a bigger platform, QX-3 is a small UAV that can carry basically up to four guided munitions and the QX-4, which is a fixed-wing, vertical-takeoff-and-landing UAV.
  • GARMOOSHA: The company said the vertical take-off drone made by subsidiary ADASI is ready for operation. During recent trials, GARMOOSHA completed multiple operational flights and successfully demonstrated its range of features including vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities carrying a payload of 100kg at a range of 150km.
  • REACH-S: The fixed-wing armed medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) REACH-S is progressing with its development milestones and is set to fly in the first quarter of 2023.

And also


Tarasov said his company’s main project is what’s known as HAPS, or High-Altitude Platform Station, a solar-powered stratospheric drone akin to Airbus’s Zephyr drone. UAVOS’s platform will be jointly produced with a UAE firm, and it will be Emirati intellectual property, Tarasov said.


And


The UAVOS board chair told Breaking Defense that the company is also working with “another customer” in the UAE to develop Large MALE UAV (medium altitude long endurance drone)

Don’t think there will be range limitation on EDGE missiles in the future they are working on indigenous turbofans for missiles and aircraft.

More info on the Saber missile here watch the full video it’s interesting


The engine will have 40 decanewtons which Is comparable to European/US engines and a good stepping stone for larger engines.
