There hasn't been much after the Arab Israeli wars, a few skirmishes between neighbors and quelling insurgencies is what the Arab world got up to after 1973. You could count the US strike of Libya in 1986 as a conventional war, the same with Egyptian-Libyan border conflict, however the Libyan didn't learn their lessons both times which eventually lead to the 2011 clusterfrick, Gaddafi kept his military weak on purpose to prevent coups.I'm speaking of Arab nations war experience against conventional army's in the past several decades. All I could think of is Iraq.
The same is true of any military, as long as their is some sort of chain, even if all that is left is lieutenants or NCOs.There is a man above Jabari, I'm not sure how to explain this. EQB is designed so if there isn't even a command the ordinary military members can take the lead, they're trained for such scenarios.
The view that a nation stopping the supply of spare parts during a war and an army being unable to use the equipment supplied by said army is unrealistic, spare parts are not provided on a day to day basis, spare parts are bought in bulk with every deal and at the least can last several years or throughout wars. The US will probably stop supplies to Egypt, however, it wouldn't effect us that much in the short term, they will however continue supplying Israel and providing intelligence to them as they did, Israel would also try to involve the US in the war, which is why you have to be incredibly careful picking a fight with them, it could mean the end of your nation as a whole if the US gets involved.Great points, I don't completely trust the West if a war scenario broke out.
We produce everything from 9mm ammunition to MBT's and trainer jet aircraft, we will also produce navy corvettes by 2016. There is a growing want to produce weapons systems under licence.agree with you here, could you list some aspects of their military sufficiency? I know they produce rifles, tanks, I don't know other than that. Lots of the Kalashnikov rifles in Gaza are Egyptian actually.
This was a good interview in 2012 with former military industry minister gen/Ridah Hafez may he rest in peace, it's quite brief and more has been revealed since:
