The NIMR AJBAN 440A is a highly mobile 4x4 protected vehicle incorporating the latest technologies in ballistic and blast protection that was presented to representatives of the Czech Ministry of Defence and the Czech Armed Forces during an industry in Vyškov, Czech Republic.

VOP CZ already enjoys a strong supplier relationship with NIMR and has been manufacturing armoured cabins for the AJBAN 440A for more than two years. This provided the catalyst for expanding the engagement to explore sales opportunities for the full NIMR vehicle range within the region, chiefly in the Visegrad Group of countries.

Czech Army is on the process to replace Land Rover jeep and Soviet-made UAZ light tactical vehicle in service with the Czech armed forces since many years. The Ajban 440A could be one of the vehicle which could replace all the old tactical vehicles used by the Czech army.

With the new threats of the modern battlefield, Czech Army needs to replace land Rover and UAZ with a family of more survivable vehicles with greater payload. VOP in partnership with NIMR would like to offer a new light protected vehicle to the Czech Army which can be used as a platform for chemical, reconnaissance, logistics, medical and other versions, thereby providing a common platform for multiple operational needs with a common logistic support base and lower lifecycle costs.

The Ajban Class is a family of 4x4 military and security vehicles developed, designed and manufactured by the Company NIMR Automotive in United Arab Emirates. This range of vehicle provides a multipurpose platform for all military requirements at 9 tones capacity from utility vehicles to fully protected patrol vehicles.

The Ajban 440A is a 4x4 logistic and utility protected vehicle with a four man cabin and cargo bed at the rear of the chassis. For its self-protection, the Ajban 440A can be fitted with a ring mount or a remotely operated weapon station armed with a 12.7mm heavy machine gun.

The Ajban 440A is able to carried 4 military personnel including driver and commander. The vehicle has a gross weight of 10,750 kg with a maximum payload of 1,200 kg. It can run at a maximum road speed of 110 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 700 km.
