Introduction to the new NIMER II LAV
The Nimer II Light Armoured Vehicle has been designed specifically for use by Military, Police and Internal Security Forces.
Nimer II is operationally capable of fulfilling a variety of roles and is available in a family of variants.
This very versatile vehicle offers extremely high mobility and balistic protection. This protection offers non penetration of 7.62 mm ball and 7.62 mm armour piercing rounds, it also includes protection from small mines. The protection is 360 at the point blank range and included within the armour are the twin fuel tanks, engine compartment and all other key services.
The Nimer II with its high performance specification is ideally suited for both on and off road operation and embraces proven performance to include very rough terrain, deserts and marshlands. Its performance in built up city areas was foremost in the design stages. Compactness and high maneuverability in the narrowest of streets or alleyways is yet another feature of this vehicle.
With all of these key design features, Nimer II provides the police, Army Border Patrols and Internal Security with an ideal vehicle to provide a very detailed operations capability.
During the design and development phases of Nimer II it was extensively and operationally tested across the hostile terrain and summer temperatures of the Sultanate of Oman. The Name NIMER is thus well chosen as it translates to Arabic as TIGER.
