Cutting-Edge Off-Road Scout Vehicles Unveiled by NIMR: Progressing Long-Range Security

At the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) 2023, EDGE entity NIMR, a leading manufacturer of combat-proven wheeled military vehicles, unveiled an upgraded version of its Long Range Security Operations Vehicles (LRSOV). These state-of-the-art vehicles feature several enhancements designed to improve performance and versatility in challenging environments.

The upgraded LRSOV boasts a high-strength rollover protection system, front and rear underslung capability, adaptive roof ring mounting, and a removable and foldable roof structure for ease of transportation. These features enhance the vehicle’s off-road performance, making it particularly well-suited for long-range reconnaissance missions typically undertaken by Special Forces.

Key Features of the Upgraded LRSOV:

  1. High-Strength Rollover Protection: Ensures crew safety in challenging terrains.
  2. Underslung Capability: Front and rear underslung capabilities enhance transport flexibility.
  3. Adaptive Roof Ring Mounting: Allows for quick customization of mounted equipment.
  4. Removable and Foldable Roof Structure: Simplifies transportation and deployment logistics.

CEO Statement:

Abri du Plessis, CEO of NIMR, stated, “As we continue to modernize our full range of vehicles to meet evolving operational requirements, we are delighted to showcase our LRSOV at IDEX 2023. Signing this deal with our long-standing partners in Algeria demonstrates not only the quality and performance of our new LRSOV but also EDGE and NIMR’s commitment to increasing national exports in line with the UAE Leadership’s directive. Our upgraded LRSOV is light, powerful, and mobile for traversing all terrains, and we are confident that it will fulfill the Algerian Land Forces’ operational requirements and strengthen their defence capabilities.”

Delivery and Performance:

Following the delivery of one ‘golden unit’ vehicle, which performed exceptionally well during multiple trials and tests, NIMR signed a follow-on contract to build and deliver 10 LRSOVs by the end of 2023. The NIMR AJBAN Long Range Special Operations Vehicle (LRSOV) is an open-top 4×4 vehicle designed for long-range reconnaissance missions, emphasizing light weight, power, and terrain accessibility. It is also helicopter transportable, offering significant flexibility in deployment.

Customization and Configuration:

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 four crew members with an optional fifth seat and provides all-round situational awareness and self-defense capabilities from a high-mounted heavy machine gun ring and gun mounts at all crew positions. Additionally, the vehicle can optionally be fitted with ballistic and blast protection. Its modular configuration allows for multi-mission variants to suit user requirements, with NIMR developing bespoke configurations from base vehicle architecture if required.


NIMR’s upgraded Long Range Security Operations Vehicles (LRSOV) represent a significant advancement in off-road military vehicle technology, offering enhanced safety, versatility, and performance for long-range reconnaissance and security operations. These features, combined with a commitment to customization and operational effectiveness, ensure that the LRSOV is a valuable asset for modern military forces.
