    The Aston Martin belong the Emir Son Jassim who came before the para start and the old tanks are just a show, if follow the news you will know that Qatar had a request for Apatchi A-64 E and still to be confirmed the order of leopard tanks from Germany to replace the AMX-30 tanks

    Pretty much the same as Iran then, aside from the familial part that is?

    In 1992, during Bastille day, our MAS-49/56 had their bolt removed.

    Are these Roland anti air missiles?

    Yup, but the Iranian regime is way more effective at direct interference and is far more secure than Qatari monarchy.

    If Mubarak survived the revolt, Omar Suleiman would have probably acted out on a long-held grudge against the Emir.

    Yep, the quite widely exported wheeled version mounted on a modified (at least the bull-bar) MAN 15to truck. Those have been exported to Qatar, but I can't tell you which generation they are using. The launcher itself looks pretty worn, maybe that's why they are the only vehicles shown in camoflage-netting Also there are differently marked dummy-missile containers loaded (blue rings on the foremost, brown/faded out rings on the others). Regarding their ECM-weakness Qatar is probably looking for something more up to date.

    Right, I did notice that after my post. Plus the fact that most vehicles on the "far" (from the photographer) track appear to be museum stuff, not "in service".

    Without the bolts they could put all the bullets they want in the rifle.

    But not the working parts of the weapons, i.e. bolts etc. Magazines are normally fitted for drills and parades in most militaries as well.
