They're both really awesome but the IFV is terrific! That's also a huge contract, wow! Even extended at 10 years and involving all the inftrastructure to build them in Damman, it still seems like a lot of $$$ but it's a great investment because of the ToT factor. If it was straight up paying and getting, it would be money overspent IMO. But because of what they get in return in the form of localization, it's definitely worth it.

At least one of Arab countries must develop that systems

This is some impressive hardware. But the reality is bitter with so much firepower they could not tame rag tag malitias of Yemen. Moral of the story it is not the machine rather man behind the machine....

Even America could not take Afghanistan and they are the strongest military in the world. Your point means nothing.

he has a valid point.
Barely any Saudi ground troops are engaged in Yemen. Maybe 20'000 at most. Various Hadi government forces are the main ground fighting force there.

As for the topic, I don't know the future of these LAV vehicles considering Saudi Arabia's souring relationship with Canada. These may be short lived vehicles.

Y'all got your arse handed to you by a tiny jewish country even with the Arab coalition so clearly Arabs of this century aren't the fighters they used to be.

Entu ma3rfishu ezzay kinae'a !!!

Plus considering that you (jordan) lost Jerusalem to the Israelis because of your greed and arrogance, you're not the best person to talk about military achievements. No disrespect.
