Malaysia will purchase another 20 Dillon Aero 7.62 mm M134D Miniguns, which will be installed on the First Win mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicle - marketed in Malaysia as the Deftech AV4 - currently on order from Thai firm Chaiseri.
A Dillon Aero spokesperson told IHS Jane's at the 2016 Singapore Airshow that they expect the purchase order for the 20 miniguns to be signed by February 2016. Malaysia had previously acquired 10 of these weapons in 2014, which have been fitted to the Malaysian Army Air Corps's AgustaWestland A109 helicopters.
The spokesperson said that Dillon Aero is anticipating further orders from Malaysia for installation on both land and air platforms.
