As Sudanese interim military leaders are attempting to squash protests that only two months ago ousted dictator Omar al-Bashir after three decades in power. Hopes of a peaceful civilian transition of power seems far-fetched as, on June 3, Sudanese soldiers and paramilitary groups opened fire on a pro-democracy sit-in in Khartoum, the country’s capital.
According to local media, dozens of people were killed and many more injured. During the assault on protesters, the United Arab Emirate designed NIMR Ajban 440A 4×4 light armoured vehicle was seen in Sudan. Activists claimed that they’re operated by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
According to the manufacturer Nimr, the Ajban 440A 4×4 tactical armoured vehicle is designed with the latest technologies in the blast and ballistic protection. The vehicle offers high off-road performance and reliability.
As a result of its modular nature, the NIMR Ajban 440A 4×4 light armoured vehicle can be configured to undertake a variety of missions. The vehicle features Battery Management System, self-recovery winch, run-flat inserts, central tire inflation system and self-sealing fuel tank.
Sudanese Military Crackdown
In Sudan, al-Bashir was removed in a military coup after thousands of people took to the streets in protests against the high cost of living.
Demands for his al-Bashir removal was facilitated through the Transitional Military Council, which took over after Bashir’s ousting, make way for a civilian-led interim body and hold elections.
The military council and opposition groups originally agreed on a three-year transition to democracy but talks broke down in May.
