Saudi Arabia, Thales UK, and STARStreak air defense system

There is talk that since the beginning of 2021, Saudi Arabia has strengthened its cooperation with Britain in the field of mobile radars as well as short and medium-range air defense systems.

In this regard, the Saudi Ministry of Defense is said to have approved the purchase of a British-made short-range man-portable air-defense system (MANPADS) of type STARStreak, produced by Thales Air Defense.

Tactical Report has prepared a 367-word report to shed more light on this subject.
