Analysis: Saudi Arabian Air and Missile Defences
#1
posted by Amir on May 16, 2019[/url]


In a time of high tensions, Saudi Arabia's air defences are at their weakest in decades.

Iran's future with Saudi Arabia is uncertain, but one thing we know for sure is that it's not friendly. I've talked extensively about Iran's ability to defend against Saudi Arabia, but with the Kingdom buying a large force of THAAD and PAC-3 interceptors, it is necessary to discuss the Saudis' ability to defend as well. I touched on Saudi air defences briefly in a [url=https://irangeomil.blogspot.com/2017/11/irans-military-posture-needs-update.html]previous blog post
, but I have decided to go into the subject in more detail. Indeed, I will go into more detail than I did for the Iranian air defences. OPSEC for the Saudis does not concern me.

1. Before going to Saudi Arabia's air defence capabilities isn't it better to analysis their radars's coverage ?

2.How do u see SA's massive air power role in air defence vs Iranian and/or Yemeni ballistic missiles ?

1. They have such a strong radar coverage including AWACS that I think their whole country is probably covered and it's unnecessary to do a blog post on it.

2. KSA's air power has no anti-ballistic capability.
