UAE to supply first aerial missile defense to Germany’s Rheinmetall

The UAE said it will supply its first locally made air defense missiles to German security contractor Rheinmetall AG, as the Gulf state expands the production and export of military technology.

Halcon, a state-owned unit Edge Group, designed the SkyKnight missile system to provide early warning signals and counter threats from aircraft, UAVs and rockets, according to the announcement made during the Abu Dhabi International Defense Exhibition and Conference on Tuesday. The missiles will be part of Rheinmetall’s Skynex defense system, the statement said.
