pretty much nothing! In fact, most of the latest Weaponary purchased by the Ethiopian military is unknown to the rest of the world with the exception of those that were somehow intercepted by the international media.

I started becoming concerned about military when I saw this map...


I don't understand why it's a no fly zone?... Does our army have any intentions on shooting down passenger planes or even have the equipment to do it?...

Of course not, it's because it borders Eritrea.

How can someone under estimate a country's d. force ranked 2nd in Africa for not capable of shooting down any force violating its air space?
This happened in 1999

Ethiopia Flag
Date: 29 August, 1999
A US registered Lear jet 35 Aircraft was shot to ground by Ethiopianmilitary forces. The incident claimed the life of the two occupants of the Jet. The plane was en route from Naples, Italy, to Johannesburg, South Africa, via Egypt for repair. The Ethiopian authorities advanced reasons for the cause of the incident. They asserted that the jet flew into the country's no-fly zone, which was near the border with Eritrea. The pilot also failed to come to contact with the Ethiopian Air Traffic Control (ATC) ten minutes before entering Ethiopian airspace, a requirement set by an Ethiopian-issued Notice To Airmen.

Nice, didn't know that they assembled/produced big toys.

Do you know if they have managed to sell/export any armed vehicles?

I know Armed vehicles were sold for some east and central African countries and AU peace keeping, but non military vehicles especially buses, and construction vehicles are sold promptly for local markets
