6x6 configuration

NIMR vehicles enter UAE military service

UAE, December 8, 2016

UAE-based NIMR Automotive, a manufacturer of wheeled military vehicles, has announced that two of its most advanced models, designed and manufactured in the UAE, have formally entered into service with the UAE Armed Forces.

NIMR is a subsidiary of Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC), the country’s integrated defence manufacturing and services platform.

The N35, a mine-protected multi-purpose fighting vehicle in both 4x4 and 6x6 configurations, and the Ajban-class Special Operations Vehicle (SOV) were on display at the UAE’s National Day parade recently.
 
NIMR’s N35 is a multi-purpose vehicle that provides the armed forces with a combination of firepower, survivability and mobility to meet modern, asymmetric operational threats, said a statement from the company.

The cabin, known as the ‘crew citadel’, is capable of providing high levels of protection against mine, IED and ballistic threats, it stated.
 
The Ajban SOV is a light, long-range reconnaissance vehicle that can be transported by helicopter for easy insertion into any environment for self-sustained missions lasting up to two weeks. The vehicle is designed to be highly mobile in all terrains, featuring a high payload capacity to transport all necessary crew equipment and features a roof-mounted gun for self-defence, it added.
 
CEO Dr Fahad Saif Harhara said: “We are honoured to support the UAE Armed Forces with our latest world-class military vehicles, which will protect the lives of our soldiers on the battlefield.”

“Local talent has been fundamental in bringing these vehicles from concept to series production. An integral element of our company’s mission is to educate and empower the next generation of UAE nationals so that they can contribute to the country’s growing industrial sector,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
