Jordan Modernizing Air Defence Systems

Jordan Modernizing Air Defence Systems October 3, 2016

The Belarussian company Tetraedr offered an upgrade for the Jordanian Armed Forces’ 9K33 Osa (SA-8 'Gecko') mobile short-range air-defence systems for $2 million a unit. The JAF has 52 Osa systems in service since its first deployment in 1982. The 9K33-1T Osa-1T, which is an extensive modernisation of the system and can involve remounting it on a new 6x6 MZKT-69222 wheeled chassis, is equipped with a new day/night camera system OES-1T.
