I didn't mean to make light of the situation between Morocco an Algeria. It was my way of criticizing the arms race between the two countries. I hope a peaceful resolution can be reached to their disagreements.War is not a joke.’ Its not a game, have some shame.
Mobile landmines? Adjusting position depending on where the operator wants them?
Seems the exported mine clearing machines are doing well. Still few mines cleared compared to how many is planted. I think drone planted smart landmines may be the future.
A bit like the spider mines from SC Vultures => launch, find location, plant thus you can use drones to infest enemy territory. The other one would require too much both size and capability, but who knows.Mobile landmines? Adjusting position depending on where the operator wants them?

Anew Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Turkey and Indonesia at Teknofest 2021 in the Turkish metropolis Istanbul, further strengthening bilateral cooperation.
Aerospace Indonesia, locally known as PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI), and Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) signed the MoU to "cooperate in N219 aircraft production extension, modernization and life extension of the Turkish CN235 aircraft fleet," the Indonesian Embassy in Ankara said in a statement.
The two countries will cooperate in engineering support of TAI development projects and in the joint development and production of the N245.
"The MoU (will) improve and strengthen the cooperative relationship that has existed between PTDI and Turkish Aerospace, especially in terms of the N219 aircraft and the modernization of the Turkish CN235 aircraft," the statement added.
Noting the cooperation between PTDI and Turkish companies, the embassy said Indonesia has collaborated with Turkey's defense giant Aselsan in 2000 for the installation of signal intelligence and intelligent communication systems on the CN235 Turkish Air Forces Command aircraft.
"In Teknofest 2021, PTDI is again showcasing its flagship products and services to expand markets and increase sales, especially for the CN235-220 and N219 aircraft," the statement added.
The six-day Teknofest, the country’s biggest technology event that began Tuesday, will continue until Sunday at Atatürk Airport.
Founded in 1976, PTDI is one of Asia's indigenous aerospace companies with core competencies in aircraft design, development and testing, aircraft structure manufacturing, aircraft production and aircraft services for both civilian and military uses, the embassy said.

I assume this deal means we're going to be building more planes with our own EW to have options in case we can't get more P72 and such. I think it's an excellent solution.
Perhaps, but I think there may be some export in the pipeline that justified the cooperation. Also Ukraine is just one country that gets a lot of Western attention atm. And if we didn't get the ToT we were expecting I don't see why we should go that route if we can suffice with Indonesia.It is very unlikely that we will receive an embargo on aircraft, and if they do, they will most likely take the Ukrainian route. We couldn't sell much to Indonesia, so there's no point in making our purchases there.
