10th May, 2016 – NIMR Automotive is a major manufacturer of light and medium weight wheeled military vehicles. Based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), NIMR vehicles are in service with Armed Forces across the MENA region and have a reputation for versatility, ruggedness and performance. At SOFEX 2016, NIMR Automotive presents two variants of its AJBAN Class 4×4 multi-platform protected vehicle, the AJBANSOV (Special Operations Vehicle) and the AJBANISV (Internal Security Vehicle).
NIMR’s Engineering Team brings a depth of military vehicle experience to the design of all its vehicles, using the latest materials and subsystems to obtain the best performance and meet customer requirements.
NIMR Engineering also works closely with global suppliers of automotive systems and specialist technologies and materials for the best vehicle performance, reliability and protection from aggressive threats in the military environment.
The NIMR SOV (Special Operations Vehicle) showed at SOFEX 2016 is the latest development of NIMR Automotive to provide a vehicle especially adapted for the needs of modern Special Forces which can be used for all types of missions and in all-terrain conditions.
NIMR’s first prototype special operations vehicle has undergone extensive evaluation trials in arid desert conditions over some of the harshest terrain in the region. The vehicle is light and powerful, capable of accessing all terrains, due to the full independent suspension. It can run a maximum road speed of 110 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 650 km.
The crew is protected by a tubular frame roll-bar around the cab to protect its occupants from injury in the case of an accident or rollover. At the center of the roof, a circular ring mount is available to arm the vehicle with a 12.7mm machine gun. To increase the fire power, additional swivel stations armed with 7.62mm or 5.56 mm can be added on each side of the vehicle.
At SOFEX 2016, NIMR Automotive also showcases its AJBAN ISV (Internal Security Vehicle) which is designed to be used by security, police forces or SWAT team. The AJBAN ISV showed at SOFEX 2016 was fitted at the front with a front dozer blade which can be used to move obstacle and a roof mounted vehicle assault system.
The roof assault system includes a ladder with platform to make entry into the second and third floors of buildings. This is an intervention system to allow rapid access into buildings, aircraft, ships in port, public transport vehicles and over compound walls and fences. The NIMR ISV can be customized to perform a wide range of police, law enforcement and counter terror operations based on the AJBAN Class 4×4 vehicle.
