The new Amoun air defense system was unveiled by the Egyptian Ministry of Defense in honor of Air Defense Day.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – The Egyptian Ministry of Defense showed a video clip of the Egyptian “Sky Guard” system, nicknamed “Amoun”, during the celebration of the annual anniversary of the Egyptian Air Defense Forces.

The system appeared near one of the Egyptian coasts along the Red Sea, during the inauguration of the “Bernice Military Base”, and the Mi-24 helicopters and the aircraft carrier Mistral also appeared in the caliph.

The Sky Guard  system, is an Italian-based short-range air defense system that mixes artillery and missiles, and can address various potential air hostilities, which include aircraft, fighters, and cruise missiles, as well as helicopters and drones.

The system battery consists of two missile launchers, each launcher carries 4 AIM-7M Sparrow missiles with a range ranging from 1 km to 12 km and a speed of Mach 4, and two 35 mm Swiss-made Oerlikon guns with a range of 4 km, in addition to a command center to control the system.
