The main contract should be concluded soon. According to preliminary data, the transaction amount will be about $ 725 million. The number of ordered complexes is not specified.

“The battery of the new SCRC includes a container target detection and control station, including a radar transported by a car, as well as two rotary four-container launchers on car trailers. A feature of the complex is the use of two types of anti-ship missiles in its structure - Exocet MM40 Block 3, produced by the French branch of MBDA and having a range of 200 km, and the new lightweight Marte ER produced by the Italian branch of MBDA, ”the publication says.

According to the author, “the Marte ER rocket is equipped with a turbojet engine (unlike the previous versions of the Marte rocket with a solid-fuel engine) and has a firing range of up to 100 km.” The Qatari military department became the first known customer of these missiles.

      If anything, then Qatar, the UAE and the Saudis are equally hostile to Iran, and this cannot be fixed (laid down in the movements of Islam).

      And Qatar's fleet is not very much, like the UAE and the Saudis. The Iranians are building their own "destroyers", including new projects. On the other hand, the coastal complexes will allow, together with the Air Force, to keep large surface ships of Iran in ports or closer to the exit from the Gulf, where the area of ​​responsibility of US NAVY.

    A memorandum of intent to acquire is just a way to put pressure on competitors and lower the price. to a real purchase is very far away. The memorandum is practically non-binding.

      Qatari men at a government expense were drawn in Europe - we must somehow report back. And then there is such agitation on the forum.

    Children show off in the sandbox, everything is much more serious here.

    In recent years, Qatar has been repeatedly accused by various experts, media and political figures from different countries of sponsoring and providing all kinds of support to Islamic terrorist organizations, such as Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Taliban, Hamas, Islamic State and Jabat al-Nusra.
    It is suspected that for fear of financing terrorists, the mechanism of the so-called Islamic charitable foundations was activated.

      So what?
      Blurred out just to blurt out? Or pick up the pros?

      Why does Qatar have a rocket with a range of 3 times the width of Hormuz?

        hi Well said. I would like more comments on the case, and not about truly unique animals. Especially for sabakina and others, a link to interesting facts about camels http://lifeglobe.net/entry/1430.
        I would like to understand from those who are in the subject - from whom Qatar can really expect a threat?

    It seems to me that the air defense is not very good for infantry. In my opinion, the guys have megalomania. Qatar is a job for "no one else but us". Why burn kerosene on them?
