Eurosatory 2014

First on the move (ES14E4)

19 June 2014

Thailand-based Chaiseri Defense (Hall 6, Stand F698) hit on a rather apt name for its family of military vehicles, calling it First Win. More than 30 years’ experience in supplying defence equipment to the Royal Thai Army led to Chaiseri winning a contract recently to deliver 30 of its First Win armoured vehicles to the country’s armed forces and internal security agencies. It is now promoting the First Win in the export market.

With three versions currently available, Chaiseri has the larger model on show. It offers a high degree of resistance against mines and IEDs, up to Stanag Level 3 as an option. Chaiseri can supply the vehicle with a number of different weapons options, and now has an agreement to provide the IMI-developed Wave 200 remotely controlled weapon station (RCWS). The First Win comes with day/night observation, target acquisition, stabilised accurate fire-on-the-move and image processing.

In addition to comprehensive support on its vehicles, Chaiseri supplies a single-piece run-flat system for heavy-duty vehicles. The company has vast experience in producing rubber and rubber-to- metal bonded parts, including track shoes and roadwheels for all types of armoured wheeled and tracked vehicles.
