NIMR Automotive, a leading manufacturer of light and medium-weight wheeled military vehicles in the Middle East and North Africa region, and a subsidiary of the Emirates Defense Industries Company, is participating in the International Armoured Vehicles (IAV) conference in Amman, Jordan.

Brigadier General (Retd) Shujae Al-Momani, Director of Lifecycle of Support at NIMR Automotive, addressed the conference, focusing on the evolution of military vehicles in the context of asymmetric warfare, and the need for increased ballistic protection while maintaining the vehicle’s mobility.

“The rise of insurgent and paramilitary groups, often non-state, has changed the nature of land conflict to one of asymmetry," Brigadier Shujae Al-Momani said. "The front line and supply lines of the past have gone, and forces are now vulnerable throughout the theatre to a range of threats, including IEDs.  At NIMR we have the capabilities and expertise to develop highly advanced military hardware that can meet the constantly evolving demands of modern warfare.”

At IAV’s first conference of the year, held in London, NIMR showcased its most recent and highly capable armoured and non-armoured platforms that are tailored for harsh environments, across a diverse scope of mission requirements.

At the conference, NIMR also announced its collaboration with Czech manufacturer VOP CZ, which will enhance the company’s growth opportunities in the European market.
