21st February 2019 - 08:00 GMT | by Beth Maundrill in Abu Dhabi


Although South Korean Hanwha’s display centred on the gigantic tracked K9 155mm/52cal self-propelled howitzer it could be its 6x6 that is garnering attention in the Middle East.

It seems that the new Tigon 6x6 armoured wheeled vehicle could be conducting summer trials in the UAE in 2019 and the company is also planning a demonstration of the vehicle in Saudi Arabia, an official told Shephard.

This follows trials conducted in 2018 to the Malaysian Army and promotion of the vehicle in Australia. The company had previously showcased the vehicle for the first time at DSA 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.
