   According to "Jane's Defense Weekly" magazine, Mohammed Najib article "Jordan to sell Osa SAMs", at the end of September 2017 the armed forces of Jordan put up for sale 52 combat vehicles of the Soviet self-moving short-range anti-aircraft missile system "Osa", removed from the armament of the Jordanian army in the course of the ongoing reorganization. A source in the Jordanian Armed Forces informed the author of the material that five potential buyers expressed interest in the acquisition of these military vehicles, including Ukraine, Poland, the Czech Republic, and a private American company.

   The same source said that the Jordanian armed forces were considering the possibility of modernization of the Osa SAM in Belarus, but abandoned it for financial reasons and eventually decided to remove these weapons systems. Three divisions of the Jordanian army equipped with these air defense systems have been disbanded. At the same time, the Jordanian army retains two divisions equipped with Soviet short-range antiaircraft missile systems 9K35 Strela-10.


   bmpd note. Soviet military air defense systems were purchased by Jordan in the USSR in 1981-1989, and their purchases were reportedly financed by the Government of Iraq. According to Western sources, at that time, 60 combat vehicles 9A33BM ZKK 9K33M2 Osa-AK, 50 9A35 9K35 Strela-10 anti-aircraft guns, 50 anti-aircraft self-propelled ZSU-23-4 Shilka self-propelled guns and a significant number of portable 9K32M SAM systems were received by Jordan "Strela-2M" and 9K34 "Strela-3".

   The Iranian radar station with a phased array antenna "Najm-802" was developed by Yerevan Scientific Research Institute of Communications Technology CJSC (YerNIIISS). Anna Makaryan, managing manager of the marketing department of the YerNIIIS, reported this to the "Armenian defense industry" blog during the ArmHiTec-2016 International Arms and Technologies Exhibition.

   The Najm-802 was first demonstrated in the summer of 2011 during the Iranian Exhibition of Achievements of the Scientific and Defense Jihad of the Armed Forces. The antenna array of the radar "Najm-802" consists of 5120 transceiver modules:

Korea's mid-range air-to-air missile

 

 

M-SAM

Quote

   KAMD is a multilayered defense system, a Korean missile defense system that can intercept North Korean missiles. The Patriot Pack-2 at an altitude of less than 20 km and the Patricot Pack-3 at an altitude of up to 40 km, which will be dominated by the domestic M-SAM and Patriotic Pack-3. Domestic L-SAM defends the upper layer to an altitude of 6 ~ 70km, but M-SAM is ready for mass production.

 

According to that: http://armstrade.org/includes/periodics/news/2017/0418/131040584/detail.shtml

Quote

   M-SAM should become the main element of the echeloned air defense / missile defense system of the Republic of Korea. It will allow for the interception of enemy ballistic missiles at altitudes of up to 20 km by a direct hit (hit-to-kill) method.

Only the control system, according to janes it'll be linking a saab radar with CAMM launchers.

 

This was announced months ago, so I'm confused as to why it's only just percolated through into the press (Express, Daily Heil and the Times have all run it a day or two ago). Most of them are pitching it as a response to argentina buying some second hand super etentards from france, but that deal went through a couple of weeks ago and it hasn't been a slow news day - there's plenty of other important things going on

   Turkmenistan also purchased Chinese QW-2 MANPADS. Thus, taking into account all the previous Chinese SAM systems that were spotted in the exercises and parades in Turkmenistan, they acquired a complete set of Chinese SAM systems from the MANPADS to the long-range SAM.
