Looks pretty decent, is it all Saudi Made or joint venture?
If they make all their military vehicles diesel electric then it will great for them.
Very nice, Saudi have so many MRAPs due to the purpose of IED attacks and ambushes protection.
Saudi has become a powerhouse of MRAP vehicles and armored vehicles, would it available sell to Pakistan?

French 4x4 ARAVIS sold to Saudi Arabia
Pakistan seriously need these MRAP to protect from terrorists attacks, this is something we lack.

Good to see Saudi Interest in developing indigenous equipment. Good work bros and keep it up.
During mine testing:
It looks good, i don't know how good compared to other APC's but it looks very nice, how i ever i noticed we are developing too many APC's maybe we should concetrate on two or three of them and work on other things.
