Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud Nigeria is a very dynamic designer and manufacturer of armored vehicles, be it light, medium-weight or heavy APCs.

No detail is known about the origin of Nigerian army's K152s, nor their number in service. Only the hereabove picture raises the question. This K152 seems to be a brand new one, as a kind of shipment document is still sticked on the windscreen.

The K152 APC has been developed jointly by the South Korean Army and KIA, a well-known manufacturer of civilian and military vehicles. The K152 is the armored version of the wheeled KLTV (KIA Light Tactical Vehicle) designed and manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation. The KLTV was unveiled in February 2015 at the International Defense Exhibition and Conference IDEX in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The serial production of the vehicle began in 2016.
