    The new turret will be integrated with a new Emirati armored fighting vehicle, as Russia continues finding new partners for defense cooperation.

    Russia will integrate the AU-220M, a 5-mm automatic turret with an armored vehicle built by the United Arab Emirates, following a memorandum signed by Russia's Rosoboronexportprom and UAE's Emirates Defense Technology (EDT) during the IDEX-2015 defense expo in Abu Dhabi.

    The AU-220M module is designed for armored vehicles, both new and undergoing modernization. The naval version of the module is capable of hitting targets on land, air and sea, with a horizontal range of 12 kilometer and a vertical range of 8 kilometers.

    The module will be integrated with an 8x8 platform produced by EDT, presumably the Enigma Armored Modular Fighting Vehicle (AMFV).

    The AU-220M is manufactured by the Burevestnik Central Research Institute, part of the Uralvagonzavod corporation.
