    Pictured above is the foundational APV that is the PF2. From this, a sterner upgrade – the PF2 Mk.II and a militarised Armoured Combat Vehicle have emerged – complete with a 360-degree turret fabricated from start to finish in Nigeria.

    Those two other CTCOIN vehicles you shall get to see tomorrow and the day after

    This is just beautiful. This is what we( bloggers) have consistently advised the FG/ARMY to purchase, and replace the soft-skinned toyota’s with.

    Our own PROFORCE PF2 APV is the natural successor and complement for the armoured Landrovers imported from Britain in the 1980s and which can be seen in use by MOPOL convoys providing escort services for Central Bank cash-in-transit convoys and in the Northeast, serving with Police MOPOL and CTU contingents out on CTCOIN operations

    So, we are good to go in the PF2 which has two hatches in the roof from which one can open fire on terrorists. Over to the Police High Command.

  7. Blackrev says:

    One question oga beeg.
    This thing go fit take heavy fire and IED blast? Looks kinda light for that.

    • beegeagle says:

      It is a PROTECTED LIGHT PATROL VEHICLE..not an APC. It combines the agility of a tactical vehicle with armour protection. Between this and the armoured Landrovers, which looks stronger?

      Anyway, it is configured to withstand 7.62mm fire from 30 metres out and it can effectively sustain grenade blasts. That is more than good enough for the secondary line CTCOIN operations of the Police and for anti-robbery/anti-kidnapping operations. That is what the cops get into.

      In any case, in which is survivability enhanced – a soft-skinned Toyota Hilux or this PF2? Which would the troops in Borno rather travel in…never mind cops?

      Do we remember that even the military have been in talks for Oshkosh Sandcat and Mahindra Marksman Protected Light Patrol Vehicles?

    • igbi says:

      Why don’t you go and work for proforce instead of standing here doubting their work ?
      You should be happy that we are entering a new era.

      • Blacrev says:

        lol @igbi
        that we seek progress doesn’t mean we shouldn’t ask questions when we don’t understand the path..
        i imagined many of the vehicles if purchased by FG, will be deployed to counter insurgency in the north. which is is the reason for my question. at least now i know it has more protection than those embarrassing hilux.

  8. Obix says:

    This is fascinating! Long Live PROFORCE!

  9. peccavi says:

    Interesting.
    I see weapon ports to fire from inside the vehicle, it looks like a useful vehicle for light patrol and police work.
    Do they have a testing facility for the vehicles?
    I trust there will be photos of their helmets, body armour etc?
    How do those products compare in price, utility and comfort?

  10. Henry says:

    Oga beeg. Just to second oga peccavi, we also eagerly awaiting photos of their helmets and bullet proof vests.

  11. Max Montero says:

    Hi General Beeg, did the military gave any feedback on what they wanted and integrated it with the vehicle’s design, or was conceived by ProForce? Did the military/defense ministry helped in the funding for its development?

    Max

  12. anas says:

    Proforce shuld engage in serious lobbying in the MOD this how boeing , northrop grumman and other defence contractors do their thing .the pple running proforce shuldnt just sit on their backsides and expect the military to purchase their products simply bcos they r made in nigeria,if it means greasing a few palms they shuld do it .in the defence business there’s no time to check time Shine ur eyes proforce,no dull urselfs ooo

    • beegeagle says:

      Anas, if we are a right-thinking people who know when we stand on the threshold of history, PROFORCE should be courted, promoted, given tax holidays and an immediate contract for 100 units each of the Leopard ACV and the PF2 Mk.II APV. The worst case scenario, they are good enough to replace all the armoured carriers for regular police anti-robbery operations.

      Fortunately, they are much better and sterner than that and are certainly good enough for immediate CTCOIN action. What is there to stop us from acquiring and deploying these CTCOIN assets ASAP?

      PROFORCE should not have to lobby for anything and their CEO should have a direct phone link to the National Security Adviser. SURELY, he is a star, a pioneer and a national security asset. Everyday, I feel like weeping for my country. LOBBY?

      America and Russia poached inventors of his kind enmasse from Germany after WWII and black Nigeria wanna lobby who? What for? At the Nigeria Centenary, would it not be nice to see the Igirigi APC, PF2 Mk.II APV and the Leopard ACV on display to signpost milestones attained in our march to greatness?

    • CHYDE says:

      My dear Anas, don’t you think that greasing the palms of some people is part of the reason why we don’t Sukhoi’s today, if they start greasing, they’ll have to continue greasing, i’ll prefer we avoid this ‘ROGER’ business
