    Who told you egypt is broke egypt had some problems yes but it is not broke and even if it was broke the Egyptian army has their own economy .
    The weapons egypt bought in the last two years are from Russia I we all know what is going on between russia and saudi arabia and the other deal is from France and that deal is partly financed by a loan from the French banks and the other part would be payed by the government of egypt no mention of a third party here so what guns did the saudis pay for

    Until I see an official government statement from either side, I won't believe it. Besides, even if it does turn out to be true, I find it suspicious that a deal would go through now of all time. Why now? After years of rejections, why the sudden change of heart? How do we know this isn't some ploy to get Pakistan to join KSA's little coalition?

    @Donatello @Horus AK has not been used in any of the of the RSLF training/exercise and the number we bought is small. The RSLF have ordered more MIA2 and all APCs are armed with TOW missiles including the Humvess. If AK met the requirement of RSLF they would have bought large number of it. This is my personal analysis. I could be wrong.

    Great cooperation and I hope we don't stop there. We should utilize our resources for the great of both nations.

    Are there any photos of Saudi army using the Al-Khalid tanks. If the news is true this is a good development.

    اتفاقية
    مفاوضات سعودية باكستانية حول الدبابة «الخالد» والطائرة «جي إف-17 ثندر»

    تجري المملكة العربية السعودية وباكستان مفاوضات حول اتفاقية شراء معدات عسكرية، تتضمن تصدير باكستان لعدد غير محدد من دبابات «الخالد»، إلى الرياض، فضلاً عن طائرات «جي إف-17 ثندر»، الصينية- الباكستانية. وتشكل هذه الصفقة جزءاً من اتفاقية دفاع أوسع بين البلدين.


    من جهته، أكد مسؤول باكستاني أنه: « تدور الاتفاقية الحالية بشكل رئيس حول دبابات الخالد، وطائرات جي إف- 17 ثندر».


    وأضاف المسؤول الباكستاني أنه على الرغم من أن المعدات الحربية للمملكة يغلب عليها الطابع الغربي، فإن الصفقة تمهد الطريق إلى فتح باب تدفق المساعدات المادية إلى باكستان. وتأتي الصفقة جزءاً من العلاقات الخارجية بين البلدين، أكثر منها لسد الحاجة العسكرية للسعودية. وتستفيد باكستان أيضاً من صفقة البيع هذه لتأمين جزء من نفقاتها الداخلية، لا سيما الأمنية منها، فضلاً عن أنها تصب في تطوير المعدات الحربية صينية المنشأ، التي يتم تصديرها عبر باكستان
    .

    He said that there is room for Saudi Arabia to invest in defense sector in Pakistan. Pakistan can also train Saudi engineers in the production of arms, Khalid Saleem said.

    He further added that the two countries can jointly manufacture those weapons which they import from western countries at high prices.

    Farooq Hameed said Saudi Arabia is interested in purchasing JF-17 Thunder fighter planes that Pakistan has manufactured jointly with China.

    These planes have almost same capabilities as F-16 but are cheaper in price than F-16, he added.
