This is from 2016, Eurofighter Typhoon #8014 undergoing testing before its final paint job and delivery to the kingdom. What an incredibly beautiful machine. You can see the outline of the spine air brake directly behind that cool-looking glass cockpit.

The fella who posted this pic on Twitter is an ex-Royal Navy F-4 Phantom pilot from the 70's & 80s and commented that this "wasn't his favorite livery," which I'm guessing means the ceremonial paint scheme. I think it's perfect for the patriotism it's meant to show.

It is possible now that Italy removed its sanctions on arms trade with KSA..
 
I have a question.

How much work is done in Saudi Arabia (Zamil Offshore etc.) in relation to that Navantia deal signed with Spain?

I found this article.


Also what are the future plans of the Saudi Arabian Navy? Is it not a bit underwhelming considering the huge coastline of KSA and the fact that Saudi Arabia has one of the largest shipping fleets in the world and some of the busiest ports in the world? Not to mention the whole gas and oil trade and sector. Looking at it from the outside it looks really underwhelming compared to the RSAF and the land forces. I could be wrong though.

Is SAMI or other local defense firms turning their attention to the naval sector? Something that I also started wondering about once the Yemen conflict began, would/are Saudi Arabia interested in building a permanent presence in coastal eastern Yemen thus securing access to the Arabian Sea?

What is the current state and readiness of SANG? I remember that it played a prominent role during the reign of King Abdullah aned many purchases were made. Nowadays you don’t seem to hear much about them.

It would have been cool if they had kept their old all-white clothing.

Also how widespread is the participation of women nowadays?

I must admit that I did not imagine that happening in Saudi Arabia but good for them.
