It is available in a number of configurations, with a maximum capacity of 11 front line troops. Highly mobile on land and water, it has a top speed of over 100km/h.
Rabdan can be equipped with different armour protection and high-caliber turret-based weapon systems (up to 105mm cannon). It also offers Level-4 ballistic and mine protection and is fully certified to international standards.
