The UAE Armed Forces have invited the public to its third Union Fortress military show in Al Ain, which will demonstrate the might and efficiency of its forces.

The show is scheduled to be held on February 24 at Al Ain International Airport, Wam reported, and will showcase the role the military play in defending the country and protecting people from foreign and internal threats.

Union Fortress 3 will involve the main ground force units as well as the Presidential Guard across several events that will show the different formations and units of the armed forces to highlight the harmony among them.

The organisational committee said in a statement: "In the Year of Zayed, we recall the vision of the late founding leader Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan to build a modern national army, which he himself followed-up ... His efforts also manifested in the preparation of national cadres and military leaders, making our forces a strong model of efficiency and readiness, as well as being a great example of the true sense of belonging to the homeland and loyalty to the leadership."
