    Russian arms agency Rosoboronexport has been awarded an AED2.6 billion (US$708 million approx) contract by the UAE Armed Forces to supply anti-armour missiles.

    Staff Brigadier-General Rashid Mohammed Al Shamsi, Official Spokesperson of IDEX 2017 announced the deal in Abu Dhabi yesterday while not providing any further information.

    However sources told defenseworld.net that the selected system could be the Kornet-E, a shoulder fired anti-armour system effective against tanks, armoured personnel carriers, hovering helicopters and re-inforced fortifications and bunkers. It is even effective against explosive reactive armour, designed to defeat anti-tank projectiles.

    The Kornet-E could also be mounted atop light armored vehicles in a cluster of 4 providing effective firepower against enemy armour. It could seek and destroy enemy tanks before they could sight the Kornet-E.

    So it's around 750 units.
    Info: 1 Unit = 1 Launcher+10x missiles

    But 750 units is too much.. so maybe more around 350-400 units + missiles...

    ABU DHABI // Not in the market for a Baynunah-class corvette or an armoured personnel carrier? Idex may still have something for you.

    How about a gold-plated rifle, robotic suit or diamond-studded electric motorbike?

    Gold and chrome-plated pistols, sub-machineguns and rifles were on display at the Pakistan Ordnance Factories booth at Adnec on Monday.

    "Normally we present them to high-level dignitaries but some clients also buy them as collector’s items," said Usman Bhatti, the company’s director.

    "We have different designs we choose from for engravings and we can also engrave the client’s name. Officials from Middle East countries are very fond of these."

    The luxury weapons can cost close to US$1,000, or Dh3,670.

    "The chrome is slightly cheaper and they haven’t been used in combat yet. That would spoil them so it’s mainly for collectors," Mr Bhatti said. "So far we’ve given chrome-plated rifles to Bahrain’s guards for drills.

    "We’ve also given them to some VIP dignitaries in Pakistan on behalf of the president or the prime minister, and we plan on opening a sales office in Dubai at the end of March to do business with Middle East countries."

    =========================================
    IDEX 2017: New Rabdan ends UAE 8x8 search
    UAE company Tawazun has developed a new variant of the Arma 8x8 armoured vehicle in partnership with Turkish manufacturer Otokar.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Technical specifications provided by Tawazun state that the Rabdan has Gross Vehicle Weight of 28t with a maximum of 30t. It is 8m long by 3.25m wide and has a height of 2.3m. This is heavier and bigger in size than the standard 24t Arma 8x8 – Comparing the specifications the Rabdan has been lengthened by 15cm and widened by 55cm to fit the turret.

    This is what other armoured vehicle providers have been attempting to do. With the contract it seems that Otokar has come up with a cost effective solution that the UAE is happy with.

    Rabdan has a crew capacity up to 12 including the driver and commander. In the IFV configuration there is gunner, commander, driver and eight dismounts, but the APC version has 10 dismounts with just a driver and commander. It offers ballistic protection up to STANAG Level 4 and mine protection up to STANAG Level 4a/b.

    Power comes from a six cylinder, 12.5 litre diesel Caterpillar 600hp engine, water cooled and with F-34 and F-54 fuel compatibility. It has an Allison 4500 gearbox and Michelin XZL 14.00 R20 tyres with a Run Flat system and CTIS.

    Rabdan has a top speed of 105km/h and a range of 700km and can travel up to 10km/h in water with its rear propellers.
