#2 Indigenous design and construction. Apparently the UAE has a thriving defense industry.

#3 Interesting info, thanks. Have they been real world tested yet or is this the first real go-round?

#4 take with some salt what the Pravda of the UAE says

The involvement of China probably is a clue that the product may only have final assembly in the UAE.

#5 Who cares. What country doesn't have some sort of small armored vehicle?

Chinese hardware assembled by Arabs. Now that's what I call a winner.

If your goal is to control your own population the NIMR is just the thing, and it's cheap.

#8 JohnQC is probably closest. Indigenous design, Chinese manufacture of parts (like there aren't any other heavy equipment or auto companies doing that) and assembly (I prefer 'construction'). Big deal.

Still I wouldn't rule out the UAE having the capability. The Israelis screwed up the last time they invaded Lebanon, because they "misunderstimated". They damn near lost a ship as well.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
