The NIMR Automotive RIV (Rapid Intervention Vehicle) first spotted at IDEX 2017 in Abu Dhabi, is on display this week at the International Armoured Vehicles conference and exhibition in London.

Unveiled in a temperate camouflage scheme yesterday, Tuesday 22nd, the NIMR RIV is a 160km/hr, 4,000kg combat weight, 1500kg payload 4×4 Rapid Intervention Vehicle which is heli-transportable inside a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. The four-man vehicle can be armed with a 12.7mm, or lesser calibre, primary machine gun plus a secondary light machine gun for the commander and an add-on ballistic armour kit is available.

As and when we can find space, we will go into a little more depth on the RIV in COMBAT & SURVIVAL Magazine.
