    This year, at the edition 2019 of BIDEC, one of the highlights of the show, is the Faisal a new 4x4 wheeled APC (Armored Personnel Carrier) vehicle fully developed, designed and manufactured by engineers of the Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) according to a request and needs of BDF.

    The design of the vehicle is conventional for a wheeled APC with the engine at the front, crew in the middle and troop's compartment at the rear. One of the most important features of the vehicle is the internal layout with a large troops compartment able to accommodate 6 infantrymen. The vehicle is equipped with anti-mine blast seats for each soldier, with two seats along the side of the hull, and two seats back of the driver and commander position facing forward. The center of the troop's compartment offers the capacity to carry additional military equipment or a stretcher.

    The front of the vehicle has one door on each side of the hull. Troops can enter and leave the vehicle via two manual rear doors. Each side of the troop’s compartment has three small bulletproof windows and firing ports. The roof of the vehicle is equipped with an open-top turret that can be armed with one machine gun or cannon up to 20 mm caliber.

    The Faisal APC is based on a monocoque design offering a high level of protection against ballistic and mine threats. According to the designer of the vehicle, the hull provides ballistic protection Level B6 against the firing of small arms 7.62mm caliber and it can withstand an explosion of 6 kg of TNT under the wheels and the floor.

    The Faisal is motorized with a Cummins Diesel engine developing 300 hp coupled to an Allison 6-speed automatic transmission. It can run at a maximum road speed of 90 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 900 km. The vehicle has a gross weight of 9,000 kg with a maximum payload of 2,000 kg.

    It seems all Arab nations have started producing vehicles recently. This a very good development for all of us. We do need to cooperate more on advanced equipment though for the future including radar, pgms, etc.

    Buddy filthy rich countries are they and its sad that defendent only supporting them with rifles.
    They cud bring anyone from around thr world and work or build anything they wish for instead of selling 500mil rifles. 500 mil a sheikh spend on its tour to europe in year.

    They have much more than rifles lol. Search up EDIC UAE and you will see what I am talking about.

    Besides, Egypt has a 250km surveillance radar before Pakistan. That has to be an accomplishment.

    I just realized, this has a fucking 20mm cannon. Is this the most heavily armored LAV 4x4?
