Sakr-80
Laith

The Sakr-80 [Falson] is an Egyptian artillery rocket developed jointly with France, intended to replace Egypt's FROG-7. Rockets from the Sakr-80 can carry up to a 200 kg payload and have a variety of warhead options such as unitary high explosive fragmentation, unitary high explosive hollow charge, anti-personnel/anti-materiel cluster munitions, and anti-tank cluster munitions.

The Laith is an Iraqi 90 km range improved version of the FROG-7. Although this system is poorly documented in the open literature, given other joint Iraqi-Egyptian development projects, it is reasonable to assume that this FROG-7 replacement effort was also a joint bi-national project.
