#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.
