    Nr.5 M1a2s Abrams Tank


    [​IMG]
    The M1 Abrams third-generation main battle tank named for General Creighton Abrams. Highly mobile, designed for modern armored ground warfare,[15] the M1 is well armed and heavily armored. Notable features include a powerful AGT1500 multifuel turbine engine, sophisticated composite armor, and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew safety. (Saudi Package): Saudi Arabian variant upgrade of the M1A2 based on M1A2 SEP, with some features, such as depleted uranium armor, believed to be missing but till yet not deployed for combat(442 M1A2s upgraded to M1A2S).



    Nr.4 Boeing AH-64D Apache


    [​IMG]
    The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a crew of two. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage, and four hardpointsmounted on stub-wing pylons for carrying armament and stores, typically a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire



    Nr.3 F-15SA


    [​IMG]
    The F-15SA is the most advanced production F-15 Eagle ever built. Saudi Arabia ordered 84 new build F-15SAs and close to 70 kits to upgrade their existing F-15S fleet to the SA configuration. Just one part of this upgrade is the activation of Eagle’s outboard wing stores stations, which will expand the jet’s already heavy combat punch.The F-15SA have a modern fly-by-wire flight control system in place of the hybrid electronic/mechanical system used by all previous F-15s. The variant includes the APG-63(v)3 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, digital electronic warfare systems (DEWS), infrared search and track (IRST) systems, and other advanced systems. It also includes a redesigned cockpit originally intended for the F-15SE.



    Nr.2 E-3 Sentry AEW&C


    [​IMG]
    The Boeing E-3 Sentry, commonly known as AWACS, is an American airborne early warning and control(AEW&C) aircraft developed by Boeing. Derived from the Boeing 707, it provides all-weather
    surveillance, command, control, and communications, and is used by the United States Air Force, NATO, Royal Air Force, French Air Force, and Royal Saudi Air Force.


    Nr.1 The Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Force



    [​IMG]

    The Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Forces (Arabic: قوة الصواريخ الإستراتيجية الملكية السعودية‎) or RSSMF is the fifth branch of the Saudi Arabian Armed Forces, responsible for commissioning long-range strategic missiles.
    The RSSMF's role has grown rapidly since Saudi Arabia and other Arab States of the Persian Gulf announced in 2009 an initiative to obtain nuclear weapons as a countermeasure to the Iranian nuclear program. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud, a former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to Washington, both mentioned the Persian Gulf states could acquire their own nuclear weapons as a countermeasure to Iran's.

    That is very interesting but in their hand ....that serve just an arsenal for the American forces in case of a war with the Russian or the Chinese..it won’t serve the Sauds..

    Are all these the export versions or are they the originals. For instance can Saudis M1a1/2s take an EMP blast or survive a nuke like their Amerikkan counterparts?

    you may have noticed the missing depleted uranium armor how can the tanks survive an emp attack when the tanks are not even ready to survive an a anti tank hit ??? You may can ask the Iraqi forces or the Saudis themselves how the tanks are doing against isis and houthis.
    But from now on the Saudis decided even if it is not cheap thoo they are going for the depleted uranium armor platform !

    Y'all talk too much about that Khashoggi bullshit. Just forget it it's been 4 months and no one talks about it in the news so why should you?
