The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is in the final stage of negotiations with IOMAX for the sale of 12 Archangel Block 2 Border Patrol Aircraft (BPA) with the option of 12 more, according to Jane's.
The direct commercial sale (DCS) will see the UAE Air Force and Air Defense (UAE AF & AD) receive the additional aircraft to augment the 24 Block 1 Archangels it began receiving in 2015. These original 24 Archangels were procured to replace the UAE's 24 IOMAX AT-802s that have since largely been donated to allied countries.
This Block 2 enhancement encompasses the integration of the IOMAX Archangel Armament Control System (ACS). In addition to the IOMAX Archangel Armament Control System (ACS), there are approximately 30 upgrades to the aircraft's performance, avionics, radios, weapons, and mission planning systems, including an upgraded electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) system to replace the Wescam MX-15. There is also an in-flight pilot egress system.
