Russia/South Africa Joint-Venture
South Africa's Denel company is discussing a joint-venture with Russia to use the country's Overberg test range to support the operation of a Russian air-launched satellite delivery system. Overberg is extremely similar in layout to the Israeli missile test facility at Palmichim, suggesting that the Israelis were instrumental in the design and construction of the South African site, according to the GlobalSecurity.org.
