I will admit this is a good deal for the SA. Will like to know what training is involved with the deal? Getting all these nice weapons dont mean mean nothing if your own forces don't know the weapons from head to toe. The Saudis armed forces must be reorganized from the top to bottom. When you look at Saudi's forces with the equipment they got they should have destroyed Yemen forces.

Where is the young officer corps? The Syrian Armed forces have a few hard core leaders. Haven't heard or seen new or highly trained officers step up to the plate. Until the Saudis get away with letting everybody else do there dirty work they will away be the same incompetent force.

The LM CEO has detailed the deal in a pressers and added the deal could be worth an additional 28billion USD over the life of the equipment

The $110 Billion Arms Deal to Saudi Arabia is Fake News

It basically confirms what I suspected. There is nothing solid. No contract. No commitment.

There has been too many "too good to be true" deals that ends up to be vaporware. This is one of those.
