UAE Firm Wins Naval Contract In Bahrain
ABU DHABI [MENL] -- A leading United Arab Emirates defense firm has won a
naval contract in Bahrain.
The UAE's Abu Dhabi Ship Building has been awarded a nearly $100 million
contract for the construction of four vessels for the Royal Bahrain Naval
Force. Executives said the contract called for the delivery of four naval
landing craft by 2011.

was negotiating to sell up to 24 Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft to Oman. The
newspaper estimated the deal at about $2.5 billion.]
