UAE: Debut for armoured vehicle
The UAE’s newest armoured vehicle, the eight-wheeled Rabdan armoured personnel carrier, made its debut during a large military exercise carried out with the United States. The seventh running of Exercise Native Fury, which concluded on 23 March, involved 4,000 US marines from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force operating alongside troops from the Emirati Presidential Guard and assets from the UAE’s Joint Aviation Command. The finale involved an assault on an urban area, carried out in the training range at Al-Hamra, on the coast west of Abu Dhabi and adjacent to the Al-Barakah nuclear power plant.
