KUALA LUMPUR: GGK LSV. Most of are you are aware that the Special Services Group or Grup Gerak Khas (GGK) operates a small number of Glover Webb Light Strike Vehicles (LSV). These vehicles are long in the tooth and with the recent RM50 million allocation for the GGK the Army is looking to replace the LSV with new ones.
DSA 2018 of course gave the opportunities to display the potential LSV with four on display at the exhibition hall. Three of them are displayed by Malaysian companies with one from the UAE.
Nimr a state owned UAE company displays two of its vehicles. The LSV candidate is the Ajban Long Range Special Operations Vehicle. In late 2017, NIMR announced a partnership agreement with Deftech to market its vehicles in Malaysia. The absence of the UAE’s company products at the Malaysian company booth probably meant that agreement had not developed further.
The other Malaysian offerings are from Kembara Suci Sdn Bhd with its 4X4 LSV, Weststar (GK-M1 SOV) and Cendana Auto which is building its custome made chassis for the GGGK requirements.
I was also told that the GGK was also offered a Turkish made LSV which was not displayed at the show. Trials for the LSV are expected later this year though it is unknown whether all of the vehicles mentioned here will actually be invited to take part in them.
