    How so?

    You don't even want to know.

    That looks awesome!

    I wonder if such a possible troop deployment would be related to the proposed Joint Arab Military Force that was proposed during the Arab League Summit in beautiful Sharm El-Sheikh not too long ago? Al-Sisi and a few Arab leaders were big proponents of this. It's probably related to that or either the Islamic Military Alliance.

    This being discussed openly after statements like this by Haidar al-Abadi is not a coincidence either!

    Very powerful and most importantly correct words by the good Haider al-Abadi who does not get enough of credit for his fantastic leadership compared to the cancer cell Al-Maliki who is unfortunately hiding in the shadows waiting to destroy Iraq further and make ugly plots. Hopefully that lunatic will be stopped for good should he attempts such demonic plans again.

    The unnatural swaying from side to side with that smile on his face... aw it was hilarious.

    As a friend of mine told me, Tillerson just always looks like he wants to be anywhere other than where he currently is. He didn't even want to be Secretary of State, his wife talked him into it :lol:

    I've seen numerous Americans in their defence community pour so much hate on the LCS because it is underarmed. Saudi appears to have an upgunned version though and from what I'm seeing all the Americans are saying "this is the version we should be having". Similar case with the F-15SA, although the Americans don't complain about that one :D

    The Mullah troll keeps producing standup comedy.

    Model of #Lockheed's frigate for #Saudi Arabia - gunned-up version of their #LCS Littoral Combat Ship, better armed than US #frigate version

    Yes, the F-15SA is such a useless fighter!

    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.

    Update: Boeing reached out to tell us they’re marketing the F-15SA configuration for export to other potential users as the “F-15 Advanced.”

    [​IMG]

    A Saudi Arabian F-15S sits on the main ramp at Nellis AFB during Red Flag
    The F-15SA is an incredibly capable machine, featuring some key changes from its progenitor, the F-15E Strike Eagle. These include a full fly-by-wire flight control system, APG-63V3 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, digital electronic warfare and radar warning suite, missile launch detection system, updated flat-panel display cockpits with helmet mounted displays in both cockpits and an infrared search and track system, known as “Tiger Eyes,” built into the left intake targeting pod pylon. The F-15SA also features F-110- GE-129 engines, capable of putting out almost 30,000 pounds of thrust each.

    When it comes to weapons, the F-15SA can carry almost anything in the inventory. In the incredible image above showing an “extreme multi-role loadout” it packs: 2x AIM-120AMRAAMs, 2x AIM-9X Sidewinders, 2x AGM-84 SLAM-ERs, 2x AGM-88 HARMs, 6x GBU-54/B Laser JDAMs, and 8x GBU-39/B Small Diameter Bombs.

    Also, the F-15SA still packs the F-15E’s 20mm Vulcan cannon with 540 rounds available. Basically, with this jet you get a tactical fighter force “in a box.” The loadout shown above includes weapons for long-range stand-off deep-strike, suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD), counter-air, direct precision attack and standoff precision attack all on the jet at the same time. Even after all that, the F-15SA’s center-line station remains unused, which can accommodate up to a 2,000lb JDAM, an external fuel tank or even a synthetic aperture radar surveillance pod.

    [​IMG]

    The image above shows the F-15SA once again, albeit this time it is in an air-to-air configuration, including no less than eight AIM-120 AMRAAMs and eight AIM-9X Sidewinders. This amounts to double the missile carrying capability of the F-15C or F-15E. Also note the Infrared Search and Track system mounted above the jet’s radome. This, combined with its state of the art radar’s low probability of intercept modes, advanced radar warning receiver and Link 16 data-link, allows the F-15SA to hunt for enemy aircraft in electromagnetic silence while still maintain high-situational awareness.


    [​IMG]
    Boeing’s Silent Eagle features internal weapons bays in its conformal fuel tanks and low-observable improvements such as canted tails, radar absorbent coatings and radar blockers on its engine fan faces. The aircraft can be converted to a large load carrying non-stealthy configuration much like the F-15SA in a matter of hours.

    Many of the improvements made in the penultimate F-15SA were also rolled into the even more advanced and stealthier F-15 Silent Eagle, an aircraft that has not found a customer in the fighter marketplace yet, especially since South Korea chose to procure the F-35 on its last fighter buy and other F-15 operators, like Japan, Israel, also did the same. Even if the Eagle line ends with the F-15SA, it is amazing how far the aircraft has come since its original use as an attack aircraft some 30 years ago.

    The Center for Moderation or the Global Center for the Control of Extremist Thought, something very large and wonderful and the amount of technology in it is very impressive, is it an idea worth to thank Saudi Arabia for.

    Did you actually read my post, or just saw the word "underarmed" and freaked out?

    If you had paid attention, you would have seen I said Saudi has an upgunned version (literally rephrased in your own post, as "gunned-up") of the LCS which is underarmed in its standard configuration, and it's the same case with the F-15SA (because it has greater capabilities than the F-15E which it is based on). And the Americans don't complain about the F-15 because the F-15 is not underarmed and is in fact a highly proficient aircraft.

    But I guess the sound of you beating your chest was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think, if you are capable of such a task.

    Quite confusing for you, this whole "weapons" thing, isn't it? Maybe you shouldn't get involved in conversations you know nothing about.

    Nice video. Some of the kids speaking in English are doing a very good job at it and the accent. Better than the old generation. Good to see. Hopefully those kids will have a very bright future. Especially that little guy with the glasses who I predict will do great.



    You have trolled continuously in this thread. Nothing else is/was expected. Anyway you wrote a post without trolling! Well-done. Now please continue while you are here. No chest beating today but I plan to hit the gym tomorrow morning. Thanks for asking.

    I was going to let you have fun with your chest beating, but you started ranting on Iran so I reckoned I'd have some fun too. Doesn't mean I won't have proper conversations with people who deserve them though.

    Saudis are smart, they are building their country. By having good relations with USA, they have access to USA universities, USA technology, etc.

    No rating but the ugly truth after a pro-Mullah compatriot of yours posted an incredibly irrelevant, off-topic and nonsense twitter by some Mullah official wanting his 2 seconds of fame seeing that his entity were nowhere to be seen along with 50 + Muslim head of states during the historic meetings. Not interested in having interactions with anti-KSA and anti-Arab pro-Mullah individuals whose only intention in this thread is to troll or make off-topic posts in order to derail an informative thread whose topics are of paramount importance

    It was fun but I am ending it here.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    So much for the nonsense of KSA and Israel being on the same boat as a few Mullah trolls are propagandizing.

    Israeli ministers troubled by $110 billion US-Saudi arms deal
    Military deal amounts to about $110 billion effective immediately, plus another $350 billion over the next 10 years; ‘Saudi Arabia is a hostile country and we need to ensure Israel’s qualitative military edge is maintained,’ says Minister Steinitz.

    Source: Ynetnews News – Israeli ministers troubled by $110 billion US-Saudi arms deal

    National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources Yuval Steinitz expressed concern on Sunday morning regarding the massive arms deal signed between the United States and Saudi Arabia during US President Donald Trump’s visit to Riyadh.

    The military sales deal amounts to about $110 billion effective immediately, plus another $350 billion over the next 10 years.

    After signing the deal, Trump spoke of “hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs.”

    Some of the arms included in the US-Saudi deal.
    “Hundreds of millions of dollars in arms deals is something we need to get an explanation for,” Steinitz said ahead of Sunday morning’s government meeting. “Saudi Arabia is a hostile country and we need to ensure Israel’s qualitative military edge is maintained.”

    “This is not a country that we have diplomatic relations with,” he added, noting that it “is still a hostile country and nobody knows what the future holds.”

    “I hope we’ll receive clear answers to that soon. This is definitely something that should trouble us,” Steinitz went on to say.

    Minister Ayoob Kara also raised the issue during the Likud ministers meeting on Sunday, asking Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu whether he wasn’t concerned of the fact Saudi was becoming “a world power with military superiority over us.” Netanyahu told him he will discuss the matter during the cabinet meeting.

    The package includes American arms and maintenance, specifically 115 M1A2 tanks, four warships, THAAD missile defense system, maritime security, radar and communications, and cyber security technology.

    The deal also includes a pledge to assemble 150 Lockheed Martin Blackhawk S-70 helicopters in Saudi Arabia to the tune of $6 billion.

    American media reported that Saudi also purchased MIM-104F (PAC-3) Patriot batteries, while Bloomberg reported on a deal Saudi signed with Boeing that could reach $3.5 billion to buy an additional 48 CH-47 Chinook helicopters and other equipment.

    The White House said in a statement that the package of defense equipment and services is aimed to boost security in the Arab Gulf region in the face of Iranian aggression.

    It is also meant to bolster the kingdom’s ability to contribute to counterterrorism operations across the region, “reducing the burden on the US military to conduct those operations.”

    It was described by Vice Admiral Joe Rixey, chief of the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency, as “the largest single arms deal in American history.”


    [​IMG]

    In addition to the arms deal, national oil firm Saudi Aramco said it signed $50 billion of agreements with US firms. Energy minister Khalid al-Falih said deals involving all companies totaled over $200 billion, many of them designed to produce things in Saudi Arabia that had previously been imported.

    A deal between Saudi Basic Industries Corporation and the American Exxon Mobil, a company until recently headed by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was signed to build a $20 billion chemical complex.

    The American president also met with the King of Bahrain, saying the two countries “have a wonderful relationship” but “there has been a little strain.”

    He vowed to improve things further, but did not specify what tension he needed to resolve. The two countries have had a long-term military alliance though the US was critical of Bahrain’s response to uprisings during the Arab Spring.

    Give me a break!

    "We need an explanation for". It is not Israel's business what 2 independent parties do mutually! What a joke! That tiny country, if not for the West and continuous Western funding even before its foundation, would have been obliterated a long time ago.

    No rating indeed, it was ranting.

    *Iranian Foreign Minister, appointed by President Rouhani in 2013 following his election.

    I thought you ended it several posts back. How about I give it a go?

    I am ending it here!

    There is freedom of media and press in Pakistan. Pakistanis in social media and media in general hate USA and anyone getting along with it including Pakistan PM or army. Iran is seen as someone standing up to USA. They are against Raheel Sharif being commander of islamic alliance as well because of Iran refusal to join.

    Safe to say they don't represent majority which mostly support prime minister hazrat Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. In recent weeks there has been huge campaign by them against Pakistan army in social media because they refused to get involved in politics to remove current PM. They can't get votes so want army to remove PM by force and make their leader in to PM without holding any election.

    Even military forum like PDF was not sparred by anti-pak army posts so you can imagine reaction in social media and tv channels.
