The Malaysian Army will tested the new local-made light tactical vehicle Adiwira.

The Malaysian Defence Company which produce light tactical vehicle has send three of its new Adiwira Interchangeable Tactical Mobility Systems prototype of light tactical vehicle to the Malaysian army combat training centre for trial tests.


The vehicle Adiwira was presented for the first time at the DSA 2012, Defence Services Asia, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its chief executive officer Marina Yahya said it is part of the company's collaboration with the Ministry of Defence (Mindef), adding Adiwira was developed under a cross-fertilisation programme between Amdac and Mindef, as one of Malaysian Industry for Defence, Enforment and Security's initiatives.

"It is hoped that this collaboration will ultimately transform the defence industry from just being a techology user to a technology prime mover," she told reporters.

She said the cross-fertilisation programme is in line with the government's aspiration for the development of a more sophisticated defence industry, which includes a self-reliant defence sector.

Formerly known as Pesaka Astana, the wholly-owned Bumiputera company was initially involved in the supply of vehicles.
