The armored carriers to be purchased are Pindad's 6x6 Anoa panzers.

Defense Ministry spokesman Sr. Comr. Hartind Asrin said Brunei planned to purchase 35 of the APCs.

“The first purchase will be 15 units,” Hartind said recently as quoted by tempointeraktif.com.

He added that Brunei had already tested the capabilities of the APC vehicles.

“Brunei is interested in buying weapons but has decided to test them first. They have conducted a 100-kilometer test drive to see whether the engine heated up,” Hartind said.

Brunei also plans to buy Pindad-made SS2 assault rifles.
