I think that it is amazing to see more vehicles which can be useful for the country and Sauda Arabia has the money to spend so hope they buy the vehicles which will be more advanced and also hope that the politicians don't overspend on these vehicles and use the money wisely in the areas which are needed and improve the economy. It is nice to see what can happen when there is a good communication between two countries and also it shows how business deals happen and also being cost effective is a way to save money in the process. It is going to be interesting to see what happens in the coming weeks and also hope the deals work and we see more carrieers brought from overseas and it can be a good thing to have deals with foreign countreis and it will show that there is trust and also a good relationship.

It's best to leave no stone unturned. I think that's what SA officials are thinking right now when deciding military matters. Yes, the country manufactures quality armored vehicles, but how strong are these vehicles compared to the other products manufactured elsewhere? Importing armored vehicles manufactured outside could help SA benchmark best practices.

Armored medical evacuation vehicle primary role is to insure transportation of wounded soldiers from the front line of military operations and providing first medical aid during transportation. Medical evacuation vehicle on universal 4×4 chassis is fully designed, assembled and tested by State Military Scientific-Technical Center “Delta”.

The first 12 units of “Didgori” vehicles will be exported to Saudi Arabia on Saturday – January 30.

Medevac is equipped with 356 hp V8 type twin turbo-diesel engine. It enables the vehicle to develop 120 km/h speed on asphalt road.

Based on Ford F550 super heavy duty truck, all the mechanical components of DIDGORI are time proven and easy accessible worldwide. To further enchase reliability of AMEV all vital mechanical components have been further reinforced to military standards, some of the components have been fully replaced with high end military substitutes in order to insure perfect weight distribution and long service life of the vehicle.

Using of high end components increases intervals between routine maintenance.
All the vital components of the vehicle are highly protected from any type of external threats and despite this are easily accessible for service personnel.
