I guess so, I know that they are a massive country, but where would they use them? Would they be used for internal patrols? I'm probably just being a bit thick, but I just can't wrap my head around it.As I thought, the ADV was definitely not suited for their operating environment. Their "operating space", if I may call it that, is rather small, especially for such a large, dedicated platform like the ADV.
Consult a map!
Saudi Arabia itself is over 800,000 sq miles... Which ignores the areas of the Gulf and Red Sea (and any foreign airspace one might wish to patrol in the event of hostilities).
Italy and UK are right about an eighth of that. If you include the GIUK (say, 1600 mi long x 500 mi wide) with the UK itself, it's still less area than just Saudi Arabian land area. About 100,000 sq mi less!
