Members of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) have received new specialized vehicles that will be used for joint operational border safe guarding.

The vehicles were handed over to SANDF members deployed in the Kruger National Park.

Colonel Derrick Moore of the Joint Operational Division says it has been difficult for SANDF members deployed on border lines to perform their duties.

Moore says the new vehicles have been equipped with the latest technology that will assist in sharing information and travel across all terrain.

“This vehicles was specifically developed and procured for the border, safeguarding responsibility of the SANDF … so (it’s) built with safety in mind, to ensure that the troops that are using it are safe when doing the patrols or when we do strategic movement,” says Moore.
