NIMR Automotive today announced a contract to export its AJBAN Long-range Special Operations Vehicles (LRSOV) to the Armed Forces of Turkmenistan.

The Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan had requested an undisclosed number of AJBAN LRSOVs in bespoke configurations. The vehicles are designed for long-range reconnaissance missions, and are helicopter transportable, capable of accessing all terrains and customisable to accommodate a range of specific equipment.

NIMR Automotive is a subsidiary of the UAE’s state-owned Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC).  The announcement was made just ahead of Defense and Security Exhibition 2017, Bangkok, Thailand, where NIMR is exhibiting a range of its leading vehicles, developed to address the threat landscape of Central and Southeast Asia.

NIMR’s CEO Dr. Fahad Saif Harhara Al Yafei said, “Our contract with Turkmenistan represents an important milestone for our company as it validates the quality and competitiveness of our vehicles in the global marketplace.”

Previously, eight NIMR AJBAN 440A vehicles, provided to Turkmenistan through a government to government arrangement, underwent extensive trials before being operationally deployed in a border security role.

NIMR formally delivered the vehicles in October where they were featured at the Turkmenistan Independence Day Parade.

NIMR is the leading manufacturer of light and medium-weight wheeled military vehicles in the Middle East and North Africa region, based in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates.
