Saudi Arabia’s Hypersonic Ambitions: Procurement Priorities, Timetable, and Suppliersin-depth

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) intends to acquire and localize a variety of hypersonic weapons in the medium-term future. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz has directed the Saudi Ministry of Defense (MoD), SAMI, and GAMI to purchase both offensive and defensive hypersonics.

Our 1,674-word report (6-pages) draws from confidential information obtained by our sources to provide a definitive account of Riyadh’s plans to become the region’s first hypersonic weapon user. Our intelligence reveals the weapon priorities, procurement timetable, end-users (e.g. service branches), and possible suppliers set out by CP Mohammad. Early discussions have already taken place with some hypersonic-capable countries, as the Saudi Ministry of Defense (MoD), SAMI, and GAMI have been urged to fast-track efforts.
