Since the drawdown of the US Forces from the operations in Afghanistan, a large inventory of MRAP vehicles has been made available to possible customers, as it was expensive to return it to the mainland US. Jordan has profited from this opportunity by acquiring battlefield proved Cougar and MaxxPro MRAPS thus, increasing the protection and fighting capability of its special operations forces.

The MRAP showcased at SOFEX was a GDLS Cougar, which had been upgraded by the US DoD under a 2009 contract, with the TAK-4 suspension made by Oshkosh. The vehicle can carry up to nine soldiers, while providing cover with its 12.7mm heavy machine gun.
