I opened up a thread for that. Do you by any means have any info regarding this. Im still confused. It seems like it did preform well in Syria.
it performed extremely well in both Syria & Iraq in use with the respected armed forces. The TOS-1A is designed t attack infantry formations, fortifications (including bunker busting and light armor dug positions in mountains) rural and urban strongholds. The System can also use a 220mm rocket or fuel air explosives. currently we are working on a new version planned dubbed TOS-2 which will be based on the T-14 Chassis

Saudi Arabia, Pakistan launch joint military exercise ‘Kaseh 2’

RISALPUR, Pakistan: A joint military exercise involving the armed forces of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan on Wednesday got underway.

The Royal Saudi Land Forces and the Pakistan Armed Forces conducted drills at the Military College of Engineering in the northern Pakistani city of Risalpur, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The “Kaseh 2” maneuvers follow on from a similar training exercise “Kaseh 1” held in the Kingdom’s Tabuk region.

Maj. Gen. Muhammad Ajmal Iqbal, director general of the Pakistan Armed Forces’ department of engineering, welcomed the Kingdom’s participation and noted the strong bond between the two countries which he said had further been cemented by the recent visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Pakistan.

Iqbal added that he looked forward to more such joint military exercises in the future.

Col. Saeed bin Ayed Al-Qahtani, commander of the Engineers Battalion 7th Brigade, thanked the Pakistanis for their hospitality during the Saudi Army’s stay in Pakistan.

The Saudi military chief said the exercise aimed to improve the combat capabilities of both countries while allowing for the exchange of military expertise between engineering units.

“Everyone seeks to make this exercise a success and use every opportunity to achieve the aspirations of the military leaderships,” Al-Qahtani added.

Last year, the “Kaseh 1” exercise was carried out to enhance the efficiency of engineers in unconventional warfare on both sides and to unify the concepts and fighting operations that come within the framework of the friendly relations and military cooperation between the Saudi forces and the Pakistani army.

Pakistan, Saudi Arabia team up for ‘Kaseh 2’ military exercise

  • Exercise is the second phase of a 2017 drill held in Saudi Arabia
  • Saudi Arabia and Pakistan signed a mutual defense cooperation pact in 1967
ISLAMABAD: Saudi Arabia and Pakistan launched a joint military exercise this week in the northern Pakistani city of Risalpur in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the Pakistan army’s media wing said on Friday, part of a longstanding defense cooperation deal between the two countries.

Royal Saudi land forces arrived in Pakistan on Wednesday and the exercise is expected to conclude on May 3, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

The Pakistan army’s media wing said a detailed press statement would be issued once the military exercise was completed.

The exercise, called Kaseh 2, took place at Pakistan’s military college of engineering and is the second phase of a joint 2017 military drill held in the Tabuk region in northwestern Saudi Arabia.

Director General of the Pakistan army’s department of engineering, Maj. Gen. Muhammad Ajmal Iqbal, welcomed Saudi Arabia’s participation and said he looked forward to more joint exercises in the future.

Commander of the Saudi army’s Engineers Battalion 7th brigade, Col. Saeed bin Ayed Al-Qahtani, thanked the Pakistani side for their hospitality and said the exercise aimed to improve combat capabilities of both countries.

“Everyone seeks to make this exercise a success and use every opportunity to achieve the aspirations of the military leaderships,” he said.
Joint military relations between the two countries expanded with the mutual cooperation program of 1967 under which Pakistan provides large-scale combined military training to Saudi armed forces. A 1982 protocol agreement widened the scope of military cooperation to include cooperation in defense production and science and technology.

Since then, both Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have continued sharing military and intelligence data under a number of joint drills between their armies, navies and airforces.

Boeing, Lockheed contracted for Apache work, Hellfire missiles for Saudi Arabia

April 30 (UPI) -- Boeing and Lockheed have been awarded contacts worth more than $70 million for support of AH-64 Apache helicopters and Hellfire guided missiles for Saudi Arabia.

The Defense Department announced the separate deals Monday.

Boeing was awarded a $39.5 foreign military sales contract for post-production system support, which includes integrated product support, of the AH-64 twin-turboshaft attack helicopters in support of the Saudi Arabia National Guard.

Work will be performed at Boeing's plant in Mesa, Ariz., as well as Hazelwood, Mo., and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The estimated completion date is April 29, 2020, with the full amount of the contract obligated from fiscal 2019 foreign military sales funds at the time of award.

Boeing has had a relationship with the kingdom since 1945, when U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt presented a twin-engine DC-3 Dakota airplane, manufactured by Boeing heritage company Douglas Aircraft, to King Abdulaziz Al Saud. In 1982, the company established Boeing Middle East Limited in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Lockheed Martin has had a presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since 1965 with the first delivery of the C-130 Hercules.
Lockheed's new $30.8 million foreign military sales contract is for Hellfire guided missile launcher and electronic assembly. The Hellfire can be fired from rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, waterborne vessels and land-based systems.

Work will be performed at Lockheed's plant in Orlando with an estimated completion date of April 30, 2023. The full amount of the contract has been obligated to Lockheed at the time of award, coming from fiscal 2010, 2011, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Army funds, as well as foreign military sales funds.

Earlier this month, Lockheed was awarded an additional $2.5 billion contract to begin work on production of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense interceptors for Saudi Arabia as part of a $15 billion for the defensive ballistic missile systems.

President Donald Trump announced a proposed 10-year $350 billion defense deal with Saudi Arabia during his first full year in office in 2017 when he met with King Mohammed bin Salman.

Boeing nabs $10.8M for Harpoon missile production for Saudi Arabia
May 15, 2019

May 15 (UPI) -- Boeing Co. has received a $10.8 million contract modification from the U.S. Navy for production of Harpoon missiles for Saudi Arabia's military.

The modification calls for obsolescence redesign efforts in producing and delivering the AGM-84 Harpoon Block II missiles, a ship-based weapon, to be completed by the end of August. The Defense Department made the announcement on Tuesday.

The 500-pound Harpoon is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile system. It is regarded as the world's most successful anti-ship missile, upgraded regularly since its 1977 introduction, and is in use by over 30 countries' navies. The Harpoon is also capable of ship-to-land strikes.

McDonnell Douglas and Boeing's Defense, Space and Security division has manufactured 7,000 Harpoon missiles.

The missile's development led to the standoff land attack missile and the SLAM expanded response [SLAM-ER] armament.

The latest Harpoon variant, the Block II, uses the integrated global positioning system/inertial navigation system found on the Joint Direct Attack Munition, and the software, mission computer, GPS antenna and receiver found on the SLAM-ER, according to Boeing.

The majority of Boeing's work on the contract will be conducted at its St. Charles, Mo., manufacturing facility.

In October, Boeing received a $244 million Navy contract to procure long lead material for Harpoon full-rate production in support of multiple Foreign Military Sales customers.

I have a question about Saudi radar coverage...

The Houthis allegedly used 7 armed qasef-1 drones to attack the east-west pipeline near Riyadh province, 800km deep into KSA - obviously the border regime is very mountainous so tracking anything is very difficult, but how is it possible that 7 armed drones (albeit quite small drones) were able to go so deep into Saudi Arabia?

To my understanding Saudi Arabia lacks effective SHORADs, but how is the radar coverage like (i.e. were the drones detected but just couldn't be shot down because of their size, or not detected at all)?

Only 2 managed to get through. Where are the rest?
