The company Rosomak S.A. executed a contract under which she had to deliver chassis base 40 wheeled armored personnel carriers destined for the United Arab Emirates.

According to Defence24.pl, United Arab Emirates (UAE) has ordered 40 Patria AMV 8×8 armoured vehicles produced by Polish  Rosomak S.A. copmany.

The spokesman of Rosomak S.A.  Michael Rumin said that vehicles will lack the amphibious capabilities of the ones Rosomak built for the Polish Land Forces but will have additional armour and mine protection.
