Interview with EDGE CEO where he says they will unveil more UCAV products and that Jeniah will be able to engage air and ground targets and larger versions will be developed.

Excellent, it would be interesting to see if it really turns out to be a platform like KE.
For Air to Air engagement what weapon package jeniah will use?
Israeli derby and python series?
I don't see many options.

They have an indigenous A2A missile under development soon according to CEO of Halcon. Denel had experience in developing air to air missiles and some of those engineers are in UAE now.

Edge also is flying scale-models of the Jeniah jet-powered uncrewed combat air vehicle, with the aim of flying a full-scale system during 2024.

I hope for greater cooperation between Edge Group, and Moroccan defense companies. Cooperation will save both time and money while strengthening the relations even further. A military delegation was part of the huge delegation that visited Abu Dhabi in early December accompanying the King.

Edge Group is working on a turbofan engine called "turbofan-400"?
I’m not sure, they’ve been working on hiring engineers for air propulsion development in all domains. They’ve developed rocket engines already in liquid, hybrid, and solid but turbofans and hets are a lot more complex to develop.

They have a supplier in Brazil(which EDGE has a huge presence in) for all their short term needs but long term they will likely work on more designs.
