AL JASOOR, the UAE’s armoured vehicle specialist and exclusive supplier of the Rabdan 8x8 Infantry Fighting Vehicle, announced the launch of Rabdan 6x6, a new generation, amphibious, multi-wheel armoured vehicle with superior tactical and technical characteristics. The launch of the vehicle took place on the sidelines of the ongoing International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX 2021) that runs until 25 February at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
Featuring flexible firepower capability and modular structural design, Rabdan 6x6 is uniquely positioned to cater to current and future operational requirements of the defence and military units in the GCC region and beyond.
With the safety and survivability of soldiers remaining a top priority for AL JASOOR, the new generation platform boasts a flexible ballistic protection capability with a modular add-on armour system. It’s also equipped with an automatic fire suppression system to offer the highest levels of safety to the crew in challenging circumstances.
A key element of armoured vehicle design in today’s dynamic defence landscape, Rabdan’s adaptability makes it a crucial and reliable partner for a range of high to low intensity missions. The platform boasts maximum driving stability on extreme off-road conditions as well as exceptional amphibious capability at combat weight.
Rabdan’s maximum commonality and interchangeability amongst its variants reduces the logistic footprint for fleet owners. In addition, it features an open electronic architecture for the seamless integration of C4I and other futuristic systems.
