Modular Design and Scalable Protection for Multiple Roles
NIMR Automotive launches its latest vehicle, the AJBAN 447A, at IDEX. The vehicle will be form part of the display on the Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC) stand – NIMR’s parent company.
A multi-role armoured vehicle, the AJBAN 447A is designed for use in a wide range of specialist military roles, offering high levels of survivability, mobility and firepower. It is a forward-facing seven crew (2+5) military tactical vehicle featuring a highly configurable armoured cabin designed for roles with tactical response, border patrol, reconnaissance, counter-insurgency and special forces teams. It offers a modular design, featuring scalable levels of ballistic, mine-blast and IED protection based on a conventional powertrain layout. The independent suspension system provides excellent ride comfort and handling characteristics, even in the most difficult terrain.
In addition to the driver and commander, the 4×4’s optimised internal layout provides five dismounts seated on individual blast-attenuating seats. Four doors provide ease of ingress and egress. The large ballistic-protected windscreen and side windows offer excellent all-round situational awareness. The 447A’s ergonomics provide high levels of crew comfort, thereby reducing fatigue during extended operations. These considerations extend beyond crew comfort; providing easy vehicle access and offering space for mission-specific, or user-defined, controls and instrumentation.
This highly adaptable platform can be configured to meet a variety of end-user mission requirements through the integration of various mission equipment and systems and also provides a compact, low-profile platform without compromising on protection, internal volume and capability. At IDEX the vehicle will be displayed with the Platt M550 weapon mount, Dillon Aero’s Minigun and Lacroix’s Automated Obscurance System (AOS).
“Building on NIMR’s reputation of outstanding manoeuvrability, the AJBAN 447A excels across all terrains and diverse operational environments, supporting a wide range of mission requirements. This 4×4 complements our existing range, allowing NIMR to expand beyond our current 4-crew light-to-medium weight vehicle configuration into an increased crew capacity with multi-role capability,” stated NIMR Automotive General Manager, Ali Al Mansoori.
