Traversing the desert in a 15-tonne fairground ride

The Sherpa might look big, but few can lay claim to travelling across the dunes of the Gulf in a six-wheeler that weighs in at 15 tonnes.

The Sherpa might look big, but few can lay claim to travelling across the dunes of the Gulf in a six-wheeler that weighs in at 15 tonnes. And in spite of its size and weight, the Renault Kerax is remarkably light on its many feet, especially when given high air. Indeed, while the Sherpa feels like a speedboat, forcing through a heavy swell, the added power and extra suspension of the Kerax makes the big truck more akin to a small yacht, rising skywards and then leaping down from a great height. This is a truck that will likely contest the Dakar in 2012 at the hands of Dubai-based Frenchman Gilles Chauve. Inside, it feels just like any other lorry, with an expansive view and all the mirrors, dials and buttons of a road-going cab. Fully laden, it starts off sluggishly, the driver working through the 14 gears each time the rev counter hits 1,400rpm. At 70kph and aiming squarely at a towering dune, the Kerax accelerates, hammering into its slope and dutifully rising to the challenge. At the summit, the wide windscreen fills with the sky as the rear continues forward. Suddenly, it buckles, lashing forward like a bullwhip as the rear wheels rise up from the sandy surface and the big truck lurches downwards. The wide view ahead gives you the feeling of being on a fairground ride. Subliminally, the sense of being a passenger in something so big and heavy on a surface is alien and adds to the thrill. It is certainly not uncomfortable, with cushioning from the big wheels and suspended seats, but disorientation grips you when you climb down from the cab, your mind battling with what your body has just done. motoring@thenational.ae

TERMINAL HIGH ALTITUDE AREA DEFENCE (THAAD)

What is THAAD?

It is considered to be the US's most superior missile defence system.

Production:

It was created in 2008.

Speed:

THAAD missiles can travel at over Mach 8, so fast that it is hypersonic.

Abilities:

THAAD is designed to take out  ballistic missiles as they are on their downward trajectory towards their target, otherwise known as the "terminal phase".

Purpose:

To protect high-value strategic sites, such as airfields or population centres.

Range:

THAAD can target projectiles inside and outside the Earth's atmosphere, at an altitude of 150 kilometres above the Earth's surface.

Creators:

Lockheed Martin was originally granted the contract to develop the system in 1992. Defence company Raytheon sub-contracts to develop other major parts of the system, such as ground-based radar.

UAE and THAAD:

In 2011, the UAE became the first country outside of the US to buy two THAAD missile defence systems. It then stationed them in 2016, becoming the first Gulf country to do so.
