    Have already posted about it in detail in some other Thread, it is not about "working" the understanding in there, point is even if it takes 10 years or more saudis would need alternate or parallel to GPS system or similar systems, they have money they are eager and have will and have invested in satellites they may go for such system in a long run, I am not saying they will do it all by themselves they may ask for help from alternative source that could be China as I do not think russians would be willing certainly not west.

    Sadly hindustan gets fooled not all Nations get fooled by paying more than what things cost, saudis are ambitious they have proved it. So I suggest you don't look at saudis as low or unable to achieve as clearly reflected from your post it is hard to start with not impossible you don't worry about their money and manpower in all Areas.

    Why will Saudi waste money on 3rd rate JF-17 to please Pakistanis? Instead they can gift you $1.5 billion in pure cash, win win for both.

    Saudigeo1 and Saudinav1 are scheduled for launch in 2015, both are the biggest satellites ever made in KSA. And both are owned by the MoD.

    The Beidou II has already done with the Asia-Pacific coverage, then the global coverage will be the Beidou III.

    I am pretty sure he was joking too, however it appears that you are not so light hearted in your own post here.

    That you can't have our defence minister and/or king? This has joke written all over it. And thank you for fixing it, no need for us to get entangled over a misunderstanding.

    Are they even trying or are they still buying stuff off the shelf from other countries just so other countries don't sell to Iran?

    Domestic military acquisition jumped from 6% in 2002 to 23% in 2013, so you tell me.
