Nimr confirms the sale of special operations vehicles to Turkmenistan

The UAE-based Company NIMR has confirmed the sale of the undisclosed number of AJBAN LRSOVs (Long Range Special Operations Vehicle) to Turkmenistan, said Jeremy Binnie.

According to the company, the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan had requested an undisclosed number of AJBAN LRSOVs in bespoke configurations. The vehicles are designed for long-range reconnaissance missions, and are helicopter transportable, capable of accessing all terrains and customisable to accommodate a range of specific equipment.

Early, the Armed Forces of Turkmenistan publicly displayed for the first time it recently delivered NIMR-made Ajban LRSOV and Ajban 440A 4×4 armoured vehicles during the celebrations in honour of the 26th anniversary of the independence of Turkmenistan.


The AJBAN Long Range Special Operations Vehicle (LRSOV) is an open-top 4×4 long-range reconnaissance vehicle designed for use by Special Forces.  Light and powerful, capable of accessing all terrains in addition to being helicopter transportable, the vehicle can be customised to accommodate a range of user specified equipment.

The AJBAN LRSOV is based on NIMR’s multi-purpose platform, developed to meet various military requirements from utility vehicles to fully protected tactical vehicles. The LRSOV seats 4 crew with an optional 5th seat, providing all round situational awareness and self-defence from a high mounted heavy machine gun ring and gun mounts at all crew positions. The vehicle can optionally be fitted with ballistic and blast protection.

The modular configuration of the vehicles allows for multi-mission variants to suit the user requirements, with NIMR developing bespoke configurations from base vehicle architecture if required.
