Denel is set to deliver eight RG32M armoured patrol vehicles and four Self Defence Remotely Operated Weapon (SDROW) stations to Namibia, the company announced on 19 January. Delivery is expected to be completed by the end of March 2017.

The RG32M is a mine-resistant light armoured vehicle designed for a range of tasks including peacekeeping. The vehicle transports five crew members with kit and special purpose equipment. The four side doors and roof-mounted hatches allow easy entry and exit for both normal and emergency use.

The SDROW is a lightweight weapon system equipped with a light machine gun. It is designed for installation on a variety of vehicles and platforms. The system can be operated remotely by one crew member from under cover, including all weapon functions such as cocking, safety and firing. The SDROW is effective against enemy targets at a range of over 600 metres.
