Malaysia is looking to purchase 48 ACV-300 armoured personnel carriers from Turkey, which has been actively pushing the sale of additional vehicles. This follows the recent purchase of eight mortar-carrier versions for the Malaysian Army, which already has 211 of the vehicles, known as the Adnan in Malaysian service.
The 48 ACV-300s are expected to be a mix of specialised variants, including a command post version that will be modified to encompass the army battlespace management system (BMS) currently under development, which the Malaysian Army hopes to field within the next two years.
