Latest Generation Tactical Intervention Vehicle
Jankel has announced the achievement of production ready status for its latest generation HUNTER Tactical Intervention Vehicle (TIV), in preparation for the imminent manufacture of another major order from an undisclosed customer in the Asia-Pacific region. The vehicles will be built at JLVM, Jankel’s Jordanian facility, a joint venture with the King Abdullah Design & Development Bureau (KADDB).
Jankel’s focus for IDEX will be on generating further sales of its counter-terror and special forces vehicles to complement the fleets of its vehicles already in service in the Middle East. The company will also be promoting its survivability systems, including the BLASTech range of blast mitigation seats.
This latest order for the HUNTER TIV has been re-engineered to have increased internal and stowage capacity. The vehicle also features automotive improvements to meet the customer’s exact specifications, delivering versatility, manoeuvrability and protection for internal security missions.
The establishment of the JLVM joint venture in Jordan has enabled regional manufacture of vehicles to meet the demanding environmental and capability requirements of this market. To date, Jankel has over 350 vehicles in service across 11 countries in the Middle East and neighbouring regions, as well as an established and comprehensive support services network that expands across 14 different regional sites, ensuring the customer can always maximise the capability on offer.
“The Middle and Far Eastern regions continue to be strategically important markets for Jankel and we are glad to announce that we’re ready to put the latest generation HUNTER TIV into volume production for the first time. We’re proud of the fact that we can build vehicles in the region using our Jordanian facility and sell to surrounding countries and the wider-reaching markets beyond [….] IDEX is an important show for us that will provide Jankel with an excellent opportunity to network further and showcase our products to countries that would not normally be so easy to reach,” stated Jankel Commercial Director, Dan Crosby.
