The number of visitors showed a three percent increase compared to 2015. The visitors of the exhibition were met by a large variety of land, naval and air platforms. Interested in the United Kingdom’s tender for a wheeled armoured vehicle, Rheinmetall showcased its Boxer 8×8 vehicle painted in the colours of the British flag, and with the slogan “British by Birth”, to remind that the United Kingdom was involved in the vehicle’s initial design works. On the naval side, seven vessels from different countries opened their doors to visitors. Furthermore, small surface vessels also performed various demonstrations during the exhibition to display their abilities. On the air vehicles front, Saab drew attention with the launch of its Gripen platform that will assume the role of aggressor in air defence training.
