    The Egyptian armed forces have been carrying out intensive anti-aircraft gunnery practice with modern weapons.

    Visnews cameraman, Pau Davies, has taken exclusive film of a group f cadets training at the Mammoura Air Defence Academy near Alexandria. They were firing at practice targets, with the help of mobile radar units, in the desert near Cairo.

    In the classroom the cadets study rocket propulsion and guidance systems and radar theory.

    In the desert they practised against a remote-controlled target aircraft, made in the United States. They used mobile radar antennae connected to a mobile control centre.
