Emirates Defense Technology Unveils its New 8x8m Armored Modular Fighting Vehicle “Enigma”

Enigma offers superior performance and flexibility that will serves future defense needs globally

IDEX, Abu Dhabi, 22 February 2015: In the Presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and the Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the Abu Dhabi-headquartered Emirates Defense Technology (EDT), today unveiled its new Armored Modular Fighting Vehicle “Enigma” on the opening day of the International Defense & Security Conference (IDEX). 

The Enigma 8x8, which will be displayed on the Emirates Defense Technology’s stand for the duration of IDEX, provides high-levels of protection, heavy weapons systems, amphibious capabilities, an unrivalled spacious interior that can accommodate 11 personnel, all without compromising the 28-ton vehicle’s mobility. 

The production of the Enigma will be at EDT’s facility in Abu Dhabi, where it has already undertaken stringent tests ahead of its official introduction at IDEX, will further support the UAE’s development of an indigenous defense industry and enhance EDT’s global reputation as a modern and progressive defense company.

Attending the unveiling ceremony, H.E Saeed Mohammad bin Butti Al Qubaisi, Vice Chairman of Emirates Defense Technology, said: “Emirates Defense Technology is proud to deliver another state-of-the-art armored vehicle, which has been designed and developed here in Abu Dhabi, and further enhances the UAE’s burgeoning defense industry.”

Mohamed Bin Jabr Al Suwaidi, CEO of Emirates Defense Technology, said: “The new Enigma 8X8 reflects our long-standing commitment to the design, engineering and manufacture of hardware here in the UAE. It also supports our reputation for producing exceptional defense solutions that directly meets the needs of our local, regional and global client base.“

Enigma is designed to be compatible with a variety of weapon systems, which makes the Armored Modular Fighting Vehicle (AMFV) suitable to armed forces around the world. This includes the Self Propelled M777 variant, which provides a high mobility Howitzer solution, due to the lightweight titanium gun built by BAE Systems. Enigma also provides solutions for different air defense applications - including the Rheinmetall Sky Ranger 35 mm turret. It is also compatible with the UralVagonZavod (UVZ) AU220M - a medium caliber turret that has been enhanced with Western standard electro-optics. 

The Enigma’s compatibility reflects EDT’s defined strategy to partner with the world’s most renowned defense providers, which enables EDT to provide the latest technologies and integration through knowledge sharing, product optimization and process improvement.

The launch of the Enigma further enhances EDT’s strong portfolio of products and defense solutions, which includes the highly successful Nimr vehicles that are also produced in the UAE in partnership with Tawazun.
