The contract became the largest one-time contract for the entire more than 200-year history the existence of Kongsberg.

As part of the agreement, the armament modules of Protector RWS, the uninhabited towers (tower-like modules) of Protector MCT, and also the equipment for digital data processing and transmission will be supplied to Qatar.

“It is worth noting that the creation of combat modules of the Protector family is one of the biggest export successes of the military-industrial complex of Norway. From the 2001 of the year, Kongsberg delivered a little less than 20 thousands of sets of these systems to customers in 19 countries. The main importer is the United States, which for almost ten years has already purchased several batches of RWS Protector Crow, ”the article says.

    Why do the Qatari people need these “modules” if they don’t fight with anyone and don’t even drink vodka in order to drive her to the nearest village? lol

      they are afraid of the Saudis, although it is not a fact that these machines will help them on occasion, the territory for maneuvering war in Qatar is too small, although the Saudis are still warriors

      They are preparing (they do not want to bend over Saudi Arabia) and are well spent on armaments and training, which is probably why they are not fighting yet!

      Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other countries in the region are waiting for big shocks. Given the pace of production, oil reserves in these countries (real, not propaganda voiced) will soon begin to run out throughout the region and instead of local “paradise” there will be a solid “Yemen”. That is why there is a radical change in US strategy in the region, instead of "digging" and seizing US infrastructure, it is systematically destroying the military infrastructure of disloyal countries by sponsoring terrorists and local attacks. But occupation (as in Iraq and Qatar) in Libya or Syria, for example, is not carried out. They are destroying military infrastructure so that the "tribes" who came to power cannot threaten the States and are loyal to their regimes (so far they will not run out of oil).
