EDGE Group to Arm Locally-Made Fast Attack Vessel with MANSUP Missile

EDGE Group's subsidiary, Abu Dhabi Ship Building PJSC (ADSB), has revealed plans to incorporate the MANSUP surface-to-surface missile onto its domestically produced Fast Attack Vessel, set to debut at NAVDEX 2025.

The vessel, serving as a First of Class prototype, will be both designed and constructed in the United Arab Emirates by ADSB, showcasing various maritime products from the EDGE portfolio. This initiative will facilitate live fire tests and customer demonstrations, establishing a testing ground for future developments. The anticipated delivery and demonstration of the vessel are slated for NAVDEX 2025.

Furthermore, EDGE has disclosed that the first international sale of the Fast Attack Vessel is in progress, according to a statement released by the company.

This development follows closely on the heels of EDGE's deal with the Brazilian Navy, involving the sale of MANSUP missiles valued at approximately AED 0.6 billion. Additionally, the U.A.E. Ministry of Defence has signed a Letter of Intent valued at AED 1.102 billion, solidifying the continued expansion of EDGE's influence in the defense sector.
