NIMR's first prototype special operations vehicle has undergone extensive evaluation trials in arid desert conditions over some of the harshest terrain in the region. Having been unveiled at IDEX 2015, there has been significant interest in the vehicle, particularly from the Middle East where the high mobility in desert conditions is most valuable. The series production version is due for completion before the end of the year and it to be manufactured in NIMR's facility in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The new light special operations vehicle, launched at IDEX as part of their 2015 Line-up, is an open top 4x4 reconnaissance vehicle for 4 crew with an optional 5th seat. Designed for special operations, the platform provides excellent 360degree situational awareness and self-defence from a high-mounted gun ring and gun mounts at all crew positions. It can optionally be fitted with ballistic and blast protection.

NIMR CEO Dr Fahad Saif Harhara stated "We are extremely excited by the new vehicle variant to supplement the NIMR line-up. This accelerated development programme, resulting in the first Vehicle ready for trialling within a 3month period, is testament to NIMR's engineering expertise and rapid prototyping capability. We anticipate that the final productionised version, to be built in the UAE, will attract significant number of orders from within the GCC region and beyond."

Designed for long range special operations missions, the large payload and fuel tank capacity allows for lengthy autonomous missions. Built on the latest proven NIMR 4x4 chassis the SOV is light and powerful, capable of accessing all terrains, due to the full independent suspension, and is fully air-transportable. This vehicle incorporates state-of-the-art communication systems and upgraded military specification power management system and can be fitted with a multitude of user specified equipment.
