Unlike 2014, Nigeria have in Q1 2015 been listed by REVA Armoured Vehicles as a CLIENT. QED.
9 March, 2015
Stemming from the fact that there are still some folks out there who doubt that Nigeria have acquired the REVA MK5 MRAP, find attached two photos of their client list from their website at two timeframes to show the latest inclusion of Nigeria and to erase any doubt.
My impeccable sources have reliably informed me that “Nigeria has rightly opted for the maximum training package”, viz:
“Full tactical and technical training is provided to the users of REVA
Armoured Personnel Carriers in the areas in which they are deployed. All users are specially trained in their area of operation. Training is tailor-made to specific configurations, but also to the relevant terrain and conditions.
“Training curricula are based on internationally accepted practices and include, but are not limited to,
– tactical manoeuvres
-immediate action drills
– recovery methods
– offensive driving and
– weapon utilization.”
As of now, suffice to say that the only missing detail is the specific number of units procured. All efforts by my reliable source to get his contacts to divulge those details hit a stonewall.
Therefore, we are either fated to wait for the Nigerian federal government to disclose this, or “we have to wait for the next quarterly arms export report to the South African parliament, covering the period 01 January to 31 March 2005.
According to my source, Nigeria have almost certainly placed a very substantial and heartwarming order for these MRAPs because “the cryptic clue my contact provided was that REVA factory is operating at full capacity which is 30 vehicles per month”
You can draw your own conclusions.
