Jan 28, 2016


The General Headquarters of the United Arab Emirates’ Armed Forces has ordered Patria AMV 8×8 armoured wheeled vehicles. All details of the contract are classified.

“This is a magnificent extension for the ongoing, successful co-operation between the UAE Armed Forces and Patria. UAE Armed Forces have been very satisfied with their existing AMV vehicles as they meet all the customer’s needs and are suitable for the needed, challenging circumstances.

These vehicles will be produced by our Polish partner in a very tight time schedule. The agreement done now is very significant for Patria, and we are excited about this and looking forward to providing the vehicles”, says Mika Kari, President of Patria Land business unit.

Patria AMV offers effective protection, increased mobility, modularity and combat proven performance. The vehicle’s structural solutions enable high payload capacity, high level of protection and integration of heavy weapon systems. Patria AMV has received excellent feedback from customers for its performance in combat and crisis management operations in Afghanistan and Chad. Patria has contracts for over 1,400 Patria AMV vehicles.

This is an additional to which the UAE possesses already. It seems like Patria proved itself in the operation in Yemen. Transfer of tech would be a good thing for the UAE defense industry which is growing by the day.
