Taiwan To Fund Somali Coastal Radar
By Oscar Nkala 8:16 a.m. EDT September 17, 2015

GABORONE, Botswana — The Taiwanese government contracted US maritime security solutions provider Oceans Beyond Piracy (OBP) to help the European Union establish the first Somali coastal radar surveillance network to help secure the Indian Ocean waters off the coast of the war-ravaged Horn of Africa country.

Under a memorandum of understanding signed between the EU, OBP and the Taiwanese representative to the EU, Tung Kyo-yu, Taiwan will pay US $166,000 for the establishment of the Somali Maritime Communications Initiative (MCI).

Once established, the MCI will be used to monitor vessel movements and coordinate the security operations of the local coast guard and the European Union-led international navies involved in the counter-piracy operations on the Indian Ocean coast off Somalia.

The surveillance system will operate from five maritime communications and safety centers in Somali cities that will be set up in the coastal cities of Berbera, Bosaso, Hobyo, Kismayo and the capital Mogadishu. Tung said the joint maritime security initiative will help ensure the safety of local shipping routes and promote better port management practices in Somalia.

"It also underscores the government's commitment to promoting Taiwan as a peacemaker and provider of humanitarian aid in the global community. The centers will collaborate with international naval forces and local authorities to increase the safety of seafarers operating in the region," he added.

OBP representative James Burnell-Nugent said his organization is pleased to partner with the EU and Taiwan in improving maritime security along the Somali coast.

"We are very happy to partner with Taiwan. This important project is intended to increase Somali ownership of its maritime domain and avoid dangerous misunderstandings between local traffic and international partners at sea," he said.

The Taiwanese donation will be used to acquire communications and security equipment together with sustainable power options to the five maritime security centers, which will coordinate regional maritime security operations.

The MCI initiative will be a major boost for the EU effort to train, equip and operationalize a Somali coast guard service, which will take over maritime security duties when the foreign naval forces deployed to fight pirates and kidnapping gangs in the Indian Ocean depart.

In July, the EU delivered six Nissan Patrol four-wheel-drive troop carriers, computers and GPS devices to the Somali coast guard to improve its on-shore capability and connectivity.

The donation followed the training of more than 100 Somali coast guard officers who completed a month-long navigation and basic maritime investigation course offered by the EU.

According to security experts, efforts to set up a reliable Somali coast guard are being hampered by lack of training resources, poor equipment and the non-payment of wages for soldiers who are eventually frustrated into joining piracy.

US to supply French-made APCs to African countries

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
06 October 2015




he US military's Africa Command (AFRICOM) has ordered ACMAT Bastion armoured personnel carriers (APCs) for several African countries via the US company Mack Defense.

The USD25 million contract was announced on 25 September when the US Department of Defense said that Mack Defense will supply 62 APCs to Cameroon, Ethiopia, Somalia, Tunisia, and Uganda on behalf of AFRICOM, but did not identify the vehicles or say how many each country will receive.

Mack Defense told IHS Jane's on 6 October that all the vehicles are Bastion APCs: a type made by the French company ACMAT, which is owned by Renault Trucks Defense. Mack Defense and Renault Trucks Defense are part of the Volvo group.

The original Bastion APC consists of the chassis from ACMAT's VLRA range fitted with an armoured body that offers protection up to the STANAG 4569 standard. It is now also available with a new high-mobility chassis with independent suspension. It has a gross vehicle weight of 12 tonnes and can carry up to 10 people, including the driver.

Mack Defense said 32 Bastion APCs will be delivered to Somalia next year, 17 for the Ugandan contingent of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and another 13 for AMISOM's Somali contingent. (The Somali National Army operates alongside AMISOM, but is not formally part of the force.)

Four will be delivered to Tunisia, 15 to Cameroon, and 12 to Ethiopia before the end of October 2016, according to Mack Defense. All the countries will also receive at least one spares kit.

S troops and Somali forces killed al-Shebab insurgents in Somalia in a helicopter raid

US troops and Somali forces killed al-Shebab insurgents in Somalia in a helicopter raid against the terrorist organization, a Pentagon spokesman said on Wednesday March 9.



US aircraft were used in the operation against the Al-Qaeda-affiliated group, which the spokesman described as an "advise, assist and accompany mission" with the Somali armed forces.

"We did go on the mission but we did not go all the way to the objective," Navy Captain Jeff Davis said.

The raid overnight Tuesday to Wednesday came just a few days after US planes and drones had killed an estimated 130 Shebab fighters according to the Pentagon.

Special forces operatives in two helicopters targeted the Shebab-controlled town of Awdhegele, about 50 kilometers) west of Mogadishu, Somali government officials and a Shebab spokesman said.

"We have reports Shebab militants suffered casualties," local district commissioner Mohamed Aweys told reporters.

Davis said there are a small number of US troops in Somalia supporting an African Union mission and the Somali national army "specifically in their fight against al-Shebab."

The number of militants killed by US strikes in Somalia has increased in recent years from 4 in 2011 to 41 in 2015.

Observers say the group aims to disrupt Somalia's first presidential election in 40 years, planned for later this year.

Al-Shabaab Overrun Somalia Military Base
July 11, 2016 62
SHARE Facebook Twitter
Al-Shabab fighters temporarily overran a Somali government military base in Laanta Buur, a former prison about 40 kilometers west of Mogadishu, officials said.

The militants attacked the base at around 1:30 a.m. Monday local time, killing soldiers and seizing weapons and military trucks, security officials said. The attack began with a suicide car bomb at the main entrance of the base, followed by massive attack by hundreds of heavily armed militants. Some soldiers at the base reportedly attempted to defend themselves but were overpowered.

A security official says at least three soldiers were killed but other officials say they fear a heavier loss of life. An official who was briefed on the attack said a military command control center for three regions, Lower Shabelle, Middle Shabelle and Benadir, was recently set up in the base. It’s unclear if any high ranking military officers were killed or wounded in the attack.

The official said militants controlled the base until 4:00 a.m. local time when they pulled out and headed towards the town of Awdhegle. The Al-Shabab militants claimed to have killed more than 30 government soldiers in the attack and seized seven vehicles. Their claim cannot be independently verified. Al-Shabab attacked the same base in March this year seizing military trucks and rocket propelled grenades.

Six soldiers were killed in the March attack. Senior government officials at the time suggested that “rogue officers” may have collaborated with the militants.

Somali National Army receives new armoured, utility vehicles


Written by defenceWeb, Thursday, 07 September 2017




Somali Tiger vehicles.The Somali National Army (SNA) has taken delivery of Tiger 4x4 armoured vehicles and Ford Super Dutiy utility vehicles, which it will use to fight al Shabaab militants.

Photos released by the SNA on 3 September, and other photos circulated on social media, show that at least 12 Tigers, 13 Ford Super Duty pickups, five trucks and several smaller SUV/pickups (apparently Toyota Land Cruiser types with emergency services lights on top) have been delivered.

IHS Jane's Defence Weekly notes that the Chinese-made Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Company Tiger vehicles appear to be painted in standard People’s Liberation Army camouflage scheme, indicating they are second-hand vehicles. The 6.5 ton Tiger can carry up to ten people, including the driver. It is powered by a 200 hp Cummins diesel engine, giving a speed of 110 km/h and range of 600 km. The all-welded steel armour of the Tiger provides protection against 7.62 mm armour piercing bullets.

The other vehicles are painted in green, and have most likely been donated by foreign countries. The Fords were fitted with pintle weapons mounts at the back and the Tigers were fitted with roof-mounted turrets, but no weapons had been added yet.

Somalia has received a large number of donated vehicles over the years. For instance, in 2015 the Interim Jubba Administration of Somalia received at least half a dozen RG31s and around a dozen Toyota Land Cruisers from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and in 2014 the UAE’s armed forces donated vehicles and equipment to the Somali National Security and Intelligence Agencies.

Also in 2015, the Italian government donated 54 vehicles to the Somali National Army as part of efforts to strengthen its ability to combat al Shabaab militants and other security challenges. The shipment included trucks and 5 MAV 5 light armoured vehicles, based on the IVECO 40.10 and capable of carrying six personnel. In April 2014, Italy delivered 30 vehicles to the Somali Police Corps in the first instalment of materiel donated by the Italian ministry of defence to Somalia’s armed forces. This year it donated four patrol boats to Somalia to patrol its ports and coastline.

According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s Arms Transfers database, since 2014 Somalia has received 13 Acmat Bastion armoured personnel carriers, nine second hand Reva armoured personnel carriers and six second hand RG31 Nyalas (the latter two from the UAE). IHS Janes also reports that Somalia has taken delivery of 50 AT105 Saxon armoured personnel carriers.

In May this year the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) handed over an assortment of items to support the Somali National Army in its security operations. The equipment was donated by the Chinese government and included three mobile kitchen units with a combined capacity to cook for 600 soldiers, sleeping bags, mosquito nets, non-metallic bullet-proof helmets and tents.
