SHAH ALAM: Cendana Auto FFR in the wild. It appears that the Cendana Auto FFR vehicles has been distributed to units of Tentera Darat though it is unclear to which units it is already in service with. The first vehicles were officially delivered in March this year. One unit likely employing the vehicle is the Fourth Division (4 Div) which is based at the Wadieburn camp in Kuala Lumpur. A Cendana Auto FFR was pictured in the wild when the commander of 4 Div visited the Banding tactical camp on May 2, 2022. The camp is located in Gerik, Perak, next to the border with Thailand. The camp was built in 1970s when the parts of the area was developed into the Temenggor dam.
PANGLIMA 4 DIV RAI SYAWAL DI PERBATASAN BERSAMA ANGGOTA
PERAK: Panglima Divisyen Keempat Infantri Malaysia (4 Div), Mej Jen Dato’ Hj Ya’cob Hj Samiran menyambut Hari Raya Aidilfitri bersama-sama pegawai dan anggota Lain-Lain Pangkat (LLP) yang sedang beroperasi di MK Taktikal 749, Banding pada 2 Mei 2022.

Selain itu, Panglima 4 Div turut melawat Pos 802 bagi menyampaikan sumbangan hari raya kepada anggota dalam kawasan tersebut.
Di sebelah malam, Panglima 4 Div terlibat sesi sidang video conference bersama Panglima Tentera Darat (PTD) serta Panglima-panglima formasi dan pasukan Operasi TD yang berada di kawasan operasi.
Sidang video tersebut turut melibatkan Panglima Medan Barat Tentera Darat (PMB TD) dan Panglima Medan Timur Tentera Darat (PMT TD) yang melaporkan keadaan semasa operasi serta sambutan suasana Hari Raya Aidilfitri di kawasan terlibat.
Turut hadir, Panglima Briged Kedua Infantri Malaysia (2 Bgd), Brig Jen Mohd Azmurin Mat Khalib, Panglima 11 Bgd, Brig Jen Hj Fazal Hj Abdul Rahman dan Panglima 12 Bgd Brig Jen Sani S.Omar.
The FFR is the vehicle for Tentera Darat commanders during operations as the communications gear onboard allowed him to be contact with all the subordinate units and the higher chain of command. Of course another FFR or MRCS vehicles will also be around just in case the first one need to be replaced. It is unclear whether the FFR is in fact a 4th Div vehicle. It may well be issued to a subordinate unit and was assigned to transport the 4 Div CO for the visit. Of course being the latest vehicles to enter Tentera Darat service, it is likely that the Cendana Auto FFR are the preferred option for commanders during field visits.
