    A lot of investment in marketing materials ... I think someone mentioned that the MCV/IFV was under testing with the PA.

    Some of the places look like HIT. Probably using their facilities for manufacturing or testing.

    Somebody please give them actual MGs. The ones installed on them look kinda fake.

    Cavalier Group is mainly owned by Maj (r) Waseem Tajjamul Pasha a retired officer from the Armoured Coprps. I’ve known this gentleman and his company for a very long time. Their main business is making bullet proof jackets in Sihalaa. Rest what they do or claim is highly debatable or questionable. They ‘act’ like a big company but in reality their work remains very limited and in ballistic textiles only. As we say in Urdu شو شا تو بڑی ہے پر کام وام کوئ نہیں

    Mohafiz IV is different. This is different Protector Interceptor is not MOHAFIZ

    Really than How come they have with really great products. Nobody is blind here. These are amazing products. Along with what KIA is offering these could be great for Armed Forces as well as Police

    I spoke to each one of these groups (i.e., the ones pushing armoured vehicle solutions to the Army) at IDEAS. None of them have their own manufacturing or even assembly line, they're just offering outside party or -- a big maybe -- joint-designs from abroad to co-produce with HIT at HIT via CKDs. So I back @PAR 5 here too.

    There isn't anyone that I can think of in Pakistan who's really getting into proper vehicle manufacturing, even under license, wherein the chassis, core parts, engine, etc are built locally. It's all doable provided the money is available (e.g., you can get the designs for dynamic parts, engines, etc via South Africa, Ukraine, Belarus, etc) and effort is made, but none of what's being offered by our vendors today fits that bill.

    I respect the HIT Viper.

    Yes, it's not a radical departure from the M113, but in designing it, HIT managed a way to re-use the infrastructure it has for the M113 to offer a new solution. That's a massive savings in overhead costs, which would make it much, much more affordable to adopt the Viper army-wide than a new off-the-shelf design.

    IIRC the intent behind the Viper is to accompany the MBTs on the Eastern Front.
