Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and GCC countries holds significant importance for FNSS. Since pioneering the export of complete defence systems, FNSS has played a pivotal role in unlocking the United Arab Emirates exports for the Turkish Defense Industry back in 1997. This venture had a big impact in the region, culminating in a series of modernization programs in the Kingdom Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of Bahrain and The Sultanate of Oman collectively reached over 1 billion USD in value.
For over two decades, FNSS has maintained its presence in the region, offering comprehensive Integrated Logistics Support services. FNSS has proficiently operated the Automotive and Upgrade Centre (AUC) of the Royal Saudi Land Forces (RSLF) for nearly 15 years, embarking on a substantial modernization endeavour targeting the M113A4 Armoured Personnel Carriers.
FNSS's commitment to Saudization has been paramount throughout the M113A4 modernization projects. Upholding the Ministry of Defence and RSLF's policies, FNSS has invested substantial effort to develop facilities and uplift the local workforce, fostering an environment where the project could be executed with local expertise. Through this initiative, numerous Saudi companies have been accredited, evolving into sub-system suppliers for the modernization program, thereby bolstering the nation’s industrial base. With more than 1000 M113A4 vehicles enhanced to date under FNSS's stewardship and backing of local talent, the JV also takes pride in delivering a fleet of advanced Armoured Command Post Vehicles, based on the FNSS ACV-19 platform.
FNSS’ experience in the region is a testament to meet the evolving requirements of the region's armed forces through innovative defence solutions and to continue its alignment with Vision 2030 of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
