Produced by Combined Tactical Systems, Inc – related to many of the other tear gas used by SCAF during the early Arabic winter.

This identifiable CS canister was found in Tahrir, photographed by @beko120
Looks like a very familiar case.
If past experiences is anything to go by (review the Tah9 case), this is produced by Federal laboratories. And one can read the labeling “518E RIOT CS”

Our first non Made in USA or China (alleged) tear gas canister. Found in Tahrir, photo by Maggie Osama via @Catherina_News
No ID yet.
Anyone read arabic?
Update: Looks like this might be Egypt made. Probably by the “Military chemical company” Banha. Though this is unconfirmed.
Further one can speculate if this info is related to the aleged use of chemical weapons.
“In March 1989, United States and Swiss officials claimed that Egypt had imported from Switzerland the main elements of a plant capable of manufacturing poison gas. Mubarak denied that Egypt had either the facilities or the plans for producing chemical weapons.”

There have been several observations of unmarked tear gas canisters being used.

There is no ID on these yet.
And off course, it would be practically impossible to ID from this photo only.
Though, someone somewhere must know something about it.
