[size=52]Babylon pistol and Al-Rafidain rifle.. Slow steps to restore the military manufacturing machine[/size]

[size=45]Iraq is moving towards developing its military industry to meet the security services' need for weapons and equipment, and to contribute to reducing its import budget, after three decades of neglecting this important sector.[/size]
[size=45]During the nineties of the last century, Iraq established five huge factories for the manufacture of equipment and heavy, medium and light weapons, including cannons, missiles, pistols and various equipment.[/size]
[size=45]Following the change of the previous regime in 2003, the civil administrator of Iraq, Paul Bremer, decided to dissolve the Military Industrialization Authority and dismiss its employees, before the Iraqi parliament returned to vote in 2019 on a new law to form the Military Industrialization Authority.[/size]
[size=45]The authority has already begun to rehabilitate the stalled weapons factories and to work with international framework cooperation agreements to develop the defense industries in particular, and started it with the Turkish side to secure the two countries’ needs of military equipment, with the possibility of selling them to a third party. Iraq also received a factory for the production of pistols and machine guns, the first of its kind, contracted by the authority since 2003.[/size]
[size=45]Encouraging steps..but slow[/size]
[size=45]At the end of 2021, Iraq held talks with Poland in Warsaw regarding the prospects for a strategic partnership in the field of military manufacturing between the two countries, the transfer of modern technology, and work to modernize military equipment.[/size]
[size=45]Iraq has recently witnessed a development in its military industry, as it has so far produced the “Tahadi” cannon, the “Saqr 1” drone, and the Babel pistol, as well as the launch of the Al-Rafidain rifle, in addition to the production of various communication devices, night sights, thermal cameras, and other products in connection with production during the next stage.[/size]
[size=45]Inside the Hammurabi factory, located in Babil Governorate, south of Baghdad, the first Iraqi pistol that was manufactured locally after 2003, after strenuous efforts that extended for long periods, saw the light.[/size]
[size=45]The Military Industrialization Authority announced at the end of last month from inside the factory that it had succeeded in assembling the first batch of a pistol, which it called “Babylon,” after declaring the success of zero production.[/size]
[size=45]Observers believe that the Military Industrialization Authority's steps in the production and development of weapons are encouraging, in the development of this sector after it was disrupted following decisions issued by the civil governor Paul Bremer, who took power after the fall of the previous regime, where he issued dozens of decisions, some of which were dedicated to dissolving the facilities of the former regime.[/size]
[size=45]In this aspect, the strategic analyst Atheer Al-Shara said: “In the next stage, Iraq needs to activate all industries, especially military factories, and the steps of the Military Industrialization Authority are encouraging. neighboring countries".[/size]
[size=45]Al-Shara confirmed in a statement to (Al-Mada), that "it is necessary to develop this sector, and to reopen the idle factories and facilities. This is a public demand, and the Iraqi products are of a high standard and are not adulterated."[/size]
[size=45]Experts accuse the US forces of being behind the destruction of the bulk of the military manufacturing plants after 2003, while making the other part a target for thieves and thieves, and many military manufacturing cadres were subjected to assassination and displacement.[/size]
[size=45]Chinese brand[/size]
[size=45]In turn, the security expert, Ayyad Al-Tawfan, said that “the military industries need a large industrial base, facilities, scientists, devices and very large funds, so that they can produce the weapons they need, especially medium and heavy ones, and this base was available in Iraq before 2003.”[/size]
[size=45]In an interview with Al-Mada, Al-Tawfan explained that “Iraq had great cooperation in the field of military manufacturing with Egypt and India. With Egypt, there were courses held, especially for workers in the Hittin and Yarmouk facility, in the Egyptian city of Helwan, specifically Sector 66, and some officers succeeded in producing Some pieces of mortars, as well as light munitions from live bullets for Kalashnikovs and some mortar rounds.”[/size]
[size=45]And he continued, “As for the announcement of the production of some weapons, especially the pistol, it is similar to the Chinese brand (CR 198) and the difference between them is only in the star, so it is a Chinese pistol,” noting that “the military, industrial, financial base and expertise are currently not available in Iraq, so many of Experts have been killed and others have been displaced, and therefore Iraq has lost great mentalities that could have reached advanced stages in this field.”[/size]
[size=45]Iraq had established several decades ago huge factories for the manufacture of missiles, equipment and heavy, medium and light weapons, which include cannons and missiles, but the successive air strikes that the country was subjected to during the Gulf War in 1991 led to the destruction of its missile arsenal, as well as the rest of its military arsenal and its war factories were looted after the American invasion for Iraq in 2003.[/size]
[size=45]Before the fall of the former regime, the Military Industrialization Authority included about 33 companies employing about 47,000 workers, and their ownership was transferred to the Ministries of Industry, Defense and Finance, before it was re-linked in 2020 with the Military Industries Authority.[/size]
