EDGE, one of the world's leading advanced technology and defence groups, announced a Dh4.1 billion contract today, for the supply of aircraft munitions, at Dubai Airshow 2023.

EDGE entity Lahab Defence Systems, the UAE’s sole munitions manufacturer, was awarded the contract which includes the production and delivery of the MK 81, MK 82, MK 83, and MK 84 general-purpose aircraft munitions.

We look forward to continuing to provide support and strengthening our commitment to the Ministry of Defence.”

The munitions will be produced at Lahab Defence Systems’ facilities, directly contributing to the UAE government’s ‘Make it in the Emirates’ initiative and 'Operation 300bn', a national industrial strategy aimed at raising the manufacturing sector’s GDP contribution to Dh300 billion over the next nine years.
