Thai-Malaysia collaborate on 4x4 for Malaysian Army

03 October 2013

Thailand's Chaiseri Metal & Rubber Company and Malaysia's DRB-Hicom Defence Technologies (Deftech) are collaborating on promoting the Thai company's First Win 4x4 multipurpose armoured vehicle to the Malaysian Army.

The two companies are jointly displaying the vehicle at the General Police and Special Equipment Exhibition at Putrajaya, Malaysia, which runs 2-6 October. They plan to offer the vehicle to meet elements of a requirement within the Malaysian Army for a new 4x4 platform to replace some of its Rheinmetall Condor armoured personnel carriers, which entered service in the early 1980s.

Noparath Koolhiran, the import-export manager of Chaiseri, told IHS Jane's on 4 October that should the First Win vehicle be selected to meet the Malaysian Army requirement an initial batch of vehicles would be produced in Thailand, while additional batches would be co-produced and licensed-produced by Deftech in Malaysia.
