VOP CZ and NIMR Automotive unveil military vehicle collaboration

31 May 2017

VOP CZ and NIMR Automotive have formally unveiled their first military vehicle collaboration, the AJBAN 440A configured to European specifications, at the 14th International Defence and Security Technology Fair, (IDET) in Brno, Czech Republic.

The unveiling of the newly configured AJBAN 440A comes at 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.

Addressing the work carried out by VOP CZ and NIMR this year, VOP general manager, Marek Špok said: “The commitment being shown by both organisations to realise the collective vision of localising NIMR’s range of military vehicles in Europe is evident with the Ajban 440A present today at IDET.”

Over the coming months, VOP CZ - NIMR collaborative vehicle platforms will be featured in demonstrations across Central and Eastern Europe. This partnership provides a compelling offering to the region: combat proven technologies, localised production and in situ support in Europe.

Commenting on the collaboration, NIMR CEO Dr Fahad Saif Harhara said, “NIMR has already developed a strong reputation for its combat-proven vehicles that can perform in the harshest operational environments. We have now integrated our platform with VOP CZ’s world-class technology that we are confident addresses NATO member countries’ needs for a military grade fleet solution, providing greater protection and longer service-life than up-armoured commercial vehicles.”

NIMR is also displaying at IDET its newest vehicle line, the Rapid Intervention Vehicle (RIV).

VOP CZ and NIMR’s latest products and systems are on display at Stand 137 – Hall P.
