NIMR Auto motive’s N35 mine protected multi-purpose fighting vehicle and the AJBAN-class Special Operations Vehicle (SOV) have been commissioned into the country's Armed Forces.
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, the company announced today.
United Arab Emirates's defense vehicle manufacturer 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. The cabin, known as the ‘crew citadel’, is capable of providing high levels of protection against mine, IED and ballistic threats.
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.
“Local talent has been fundamental in bringing these vehicles from concept to series production. An integral element of NIMR’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.” Dr. Fahad Saif Harhara, NIMR CEO, said.
NIMR, a subsidiary of Emirates Defence Industries Company, designs and manufactures these vehicles at its manufacturing facility in Abu Dhabi. It also provides full lifecycle management including Integrated Logistic Support, maintenance, repair, and technical support and spares to manage the entire fleet and variants deployed.
