purchasing from China is a mix between improving capabilities and political purchasing. HQ-9 for sure was a political purchase. however our Naval officer went to China and he mentioned we have some interest in Chinese frigates, probably the 054A is what most is saying.

The UAE developed a based version of the Gaz-Tiger under the name Nimr which Algeria does operate but not sure if Kornet can be mounted on the vehicle or not. Can you please confirm.

Brother, it's the other way around.

1) UAE Nimr built under license in Algeria

Tawazun inks JV for Nimr manufacturing in Algeria
Filed on July 29, 2012

ABU DHABI — Tawazun Holding, the steadily growing manufacturer which is helping to build the industrial backbone of the UAE, has expanded its presence in the African defence market by inking of a joint venture agreement with Groupement de la Promotion de l’Industrie Mécanique, or GPIM, a company under the Algerian Ministry of National Defence’s Direction des Fabrications Militaires, or DFM, designed to create a new Algerian-based armored vehicle manufacturer. GPIM is the main automotive industrial arm of DFM.

The joint venture — which will see the new company produce UAE-designed armoured vehicles in Algeria under licence from Nimr — means that the UAE is now exporting its advanced defence technology know-how to other markets around the world. The agreement also allows Tawazun easier access to the African defence market, opening up new commercial opportunities for the fast-growing strategic manufacturer.
The newly-created company will initially target producing more than 200 4x4 armored vehicles after its set-up is complete.


more details:

2) Kornet, can very well be mounted on the 4X4 as well as the 6X6 variants

Here you can see anti-ship missiles, and below laser guided Talon missiles.

what many don't understand is that Morocco and Algeria are in arms race against each other, of course we know who is taking the lead (Algeria) while Morocco still lacks and that's because Morocco's defence budget is small and rely on a majority of their weapons to be free and 2nd hand weapons.
from what I understand was the Saudis have helped pay for some of Morocco's modernization project but they still need to invest in their own economics to grow stronger.

what I'm shocked about is this. Algeria surpassed India as our #1 largest buyer and really helped our defence companies. @Alpha bro continue to posting Algeria's defence procurement projects. I'm quite interested

We have been hearing about the A50 AWACS purchase for quite some time. Can you provide some update in this regard?

Best Regards

following the Purchase of the Su-35, Algeria has an interest in acquiring an AWACs whether it be the A-50U or A-100 to strengthen their capabilities. I think they sent some air force officials to come inspect actually. but an acquirement might be made by next year.

Homemade Army Drones Successfully Strike Terror Targets in Algeria

Algiers- Boualam Ghimrasah

Algeria’s Defense Ministry published a statement revealing that Algerian-made army drones struck terror targets near the country’s southern borders.

This is the first time the ministry publicizes operating locally-made drones since it first declared war on terror in the mid-90s.

In a statement, the Ministry of Defense said the flights were ordered by Algerian Army Chief Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaid Salah, who paid a visit to the “sixth military zone” (near borders with Niger) in the last four days.

It also highlighted the role of Algerian-made drones in counterterror operations, adding that the aircrafts were capable of operating both nighttime and daytime missions effectively.

Despite saying targets were successfully struck, the statement did not mention the toll inflicted on terrorist formations.

In a related context, the Ministry of Defense announced that the army had discovered a weapons and munitions depot north-east the In Amenas town which lies on southeastern borders with Syria.

The weapons cache included rocket launchers and RPG-7 missiles, as well as machine guns, pistols, and ammunition.
