Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC Adnan) variants equipped with a one man turret armed with a 25mm Bushmaster cannon or two turret mounted 7.62mm machine guns and deployed during Ops Daulat were the main attraction at the Malaysian Armed Forces Open Day held at Felda Sahabat.
The Adnan APC is a tracked armoured vehicle personnel carrier equipped with one-man turret armed with a 25mm Bushmaster cannon.
     

APC Adnan, the Malaysian Army’s formidable armoured vehicle that was deployed throughout Ops Daulat was put on display for public viewing.

The Malaysian Adnan is based on the Turkish APC ACV-300, a result of a collaboration between the Turkish Company FNSS and the Malaysian company DRB-Hicom Defence Technologies (Deftech). Malaysia's ACV-300 tanks are nicknamed the Adnan, after Adnan bin Saidi, a Malay Lieutenant hero who fought in the Battle of Singapore during World War II. They are manufactured locally at Pekan in Pahang.

Captain Bukhairy Bakar from Battalion 7 of the Royal Regiment Rangers said the armoured vehicles were used to carry out attacks from a distance of seven kilometres.

Bukhairy who was tasked to handle an APC Adnan during Ops Daulat was stationed beside the vehicle to brief visitors of its functions.

Other assets on display were Royal Malaysian Air Force Nuri Helicopters,A gusta Wesland Loh Helicopters, Hawk, APC Condor, Mortar, Artillery and Snipers.

Visitors were treated to a mock armed combat and various demonstrations carried out by Armed Forces personnel who had taken part in Ops Daulat.

A survey by Bernama saw visitors, especially the younger generation, curious to try out such equipment while some took the opportunity to take pictures with armoured vehicles and Armed Forces personnel. -- BERNAMA
