Nigeria`s Proforce Has Signed a Contract for Foreign Sale of 20 Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected Vehicles
ABUJA, (BM) – Nigerian defence company Proforce has signed a contract for the sale of 20 of its new Ara 2 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicles, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting Jane`s.
The company did not wish to disclose the name of the customer, only acknowledging that the purchase was made by an African country. However, a source with knowledge of the deal told that the client is Chad.
According to the same source, the deal was finalised in June 2019 and deliveries are expected to begin before the end of the year in successive batches of five vehicles.
Chadian interest in the Ara 2 was reportedly prompted when Chadian President Idriss Déby observed Nigerian Police Proforce PF2 armoured vehicles in Abuja during a visit last year.
