Malaysia conformed the plans to replace its ageing Rheinmetall Condor 4х4 light armeoured vehicles. The replacement platforms would be two new types of light armoured vehicles - a 4x4 and a 6x6 variant. The new 4x4 version will be used to replace the Condors, that are currently operated by the Malaysian peacekeeping battalion with the UN Interim Force in Lebanon. The Un is likely to reimburse the cost of the procurement. The 6x6 version will be procured to replace the Condors operated by the Malaysian Army's Royal Armoured Corps, of which about 150 units are belived to be active.
