‘Made in KSA:’ Saudi Arabia unveils first locally manufactured truck


King Abdullah greenlights Gazal 1 to become first Saudi-made car




Saudi Arabia opens munitions factory built by Rheinmetall Denel Munition


RDM manufactures a wide variety of medium and large calibre ammunition, from 40 mm grenades to 155 mm artillery rounds as well as mortars, bombs, 76/62 mm shells, mine breaching systems and rocket and missile subsystems. For example, RDM provided the rocket motor for the FZ-90 rocket and offers rocket fuse, warhead and motor capabilities. RDM also builds two to three ammunition filling plants a year for export. The company has established ammunition filling plants in three dozen different countries over the last three decades.

They need to go to Pininfarina or Giugiaro and get the sheetmetal re-done.

Not compatible with current market trends, IF they want this to be commercially successful.

If they don't, and if this is just a prestige project, then ignore my opinion.

Now this is a great looking vehicle with potential.

BTW most high grade dual motor electric sedans (Teslas of many types) will pull from 0-60 in a shade over three seconds.

First-hand experience.

There is a Tesla S Plaid model coming out (900 HP) that will do 0-60 in 2 seconds. Some people's necks might snap.

The AV is built using lightweight carbon fiber with a payload capability of 15 kg, has a maximum speed of 80 km/h, an endurance of 5 h with no payload, and up to 3 h with a 12 kg payload. The AV flies at a maximum altitude of 9,000 ft with a communication range of 150 km, and has a wing resistance of 28 km/h. Additionally, BARIQ can operate in dual-frequency modes (ultra-high frequency and very-high frequency) and support beyond line-of-sight operations using satellite communication and a portable ground control station (GCS). The video link and telemetry data are both encrypted..
