Czech Republic’s VOP CZ and UAE’s NIMR Automotive will be unveiling their first military vehicle AJBAN 440A configured to European specifications at 14th International Defence and Security Technology Fair, (IDET).
Since announcing their partnership in early 2017, VOP CZ and NIMR's design and engineering have teamed to bring this platform to the European market, with trials already taking place in the presence of Czech Armed Forces.
The newly configured AJBAN 440A unveiled during a time when countries across Central and Eastern Europe are undertaking the most significant defence modernisation programmes of the past two decades, including the replacement of ageing, legacy platforms with proven military vehicle solutions, the UAE company announced Wednesday.
Over the coming months, VOP CZ - NIMR collaborative vehicle platforms will be featured in demonstrations across Central and Eastern Europe.
Commenting on the collaboration, NIMR CEO, Dr. Fahad Saif Harhara said, “We have now integrated our platform with VOP CZ's technology that addresses NATO member countries' needs for a military grade fleet solution."
NIMR is also displaying at IDET its newest vehicle line, the Rapid Intervention Vehicle (RIV). Designed to be internally transportable in a CH-47.
The RIV developed by NIMR in collaboration within Europe. It has been engineered by Horiba Mira in the United Kingdom.
