Mildef International Technologies (Mildef) is making history in Malaysia with the launch of a high-mobility armoured vehicle said to be of international quality.
The company produced a military vehicle referred to as MILDEF HMAV4x4.
It was designed and developed by the company which is based in the capital Kuala Lumpur.
Chief Executive Officer, Mohd Nizam Kasa told Utusan (a Malay online paper) the vehicle is also targeted for domestic use, though the potential for foreign market is huge.
The company plans to target the Asean market, an organisation of 10 member countries from the region. But the company do not want to stop at regional sales only.
It is also thinking of global sales to scale its production.
“MILDEF HMAV4x4 is also equipped with a sophisticated Remote Control Weapon System that can shoot 360 degrees while fighting with the help of a screen,” says Mohd. Nizam in a presser at the Cipta Serenia Industrial Area, Sepang, Selangor.
Mildef is one of the leading automotive services company in the local defense industry.
It is a leader in the field of maintenance, repair and overhaul.
Established in 2005, Mildef is focused on armoured car building in support of the defence sector. This keeps the company going, says the management.
Mohd Nizam says the four-wheel-drive vehicle is fast and can carry important military missions in various terrain.
“It can reach a maximum speed of 110 kilometres per hour and is suitable for any security mission under the auspices of the United Nations.
Mildef has the support of the Ministry of Defense, the Institute for Defense Science and Technology Research in Kajang, Selangor.
