    Fokus: De forente arabiske emirater

    De forente arabiske emirater er en føderasjon i Midtøsten. Landet består av syv stater kalt emirater og grenser til Oman og Saudi-Arabia. Hovedstaden er Abu Dhabi, mens Dubai er den største byen.

    Folketallet er i meget sterk vekst, fra 2,86 millioner innbyggere i 1999 til 5,07 millioner i 2009, og majoriteten er arbeidsinnvandrere fra India, Pakistan, Filippinene og andre land i Asia. Økonomisk er landets inntekter svært avhengig av olje, men handel og finansmarkeder er også viktige inntektskilder.

    De første 150 årene, inntil 1971, gikk landet under navnet Traktatkysten.

    USA har flybasen Al Dhafra Air Basei landet.

    Forsvar:
    The United Arab Emirates Armed Forces are the armed forces of the United Arab Emirates and have primary responsibility for the defence of all seven emirates. They consists of approximately 100,000 personnel, and are headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

    The United Arab Emirates Armed Forces were formed in 1951 as the historic Trucial Oman Scouts, a long symbol of public order in Eastern Arabia. Since their formation, the armed forces have been deployed in various military and humanitarian missions. As a result of their active and effective military role despite their small active personnel, the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces are commonly nicknamed "Little Sparta" by United States Armed Forces General and former US defense secretary James Mattis.

    According to multiple sources privy to the negotiations, Hanwha Defense was to finalise a contract to deliver the 155mm/52-calibre SPH to the UAE in late 2019, but this has yet to happen due to Germany’s moratorium on arms exports to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    The German defence export ban prevents the K9s from being delivered as they use MT 881 Ka-500 diesel engines made by the German company MTU Friedrichshafen.

    The number of K9s the UAE is expected to order has not been confirmed, but Janes sources believe it would be about 20. The UAE Armed Forces currently has 85 M109/L47 tracked and 78 G6 wheeled SPHs.

    Chancellor Angela Merkel announced in October 2018 that Germany was freezing defence exports to Saudi Arabia in the wake of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal al-Khashoggi.

      Fra F-35 tråden:

      Opprinnelig skrevet av Znuddel Vis post

      The chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee said Thursday that the Trump administration has informally notified Congress of its intent to move forward with a major arms sale to the United Arab Emirates involving advanced F-35 jets.

      Two Democratic congressional aides said that the arms package involved 50 F-35 jets valued at some $10 billion.

      Demokratene kom til kort, og salget er nå godkjent i Senatet.

      Salget blir sett på som en belønning fra Trump til UAE for å ha anerkjent og normalisert forholdet til Israel.

      Konkret dreier det seg om opp til 50 F-35A kampfly og 54 F135-motorer, verdsatt til 10,4 milliarder dollar, 18 MQ-9B droner verdsatt til 2,97 milliarder dollar samt våpen for begge plattformene for 10 milliarder dollar.
