The Jordan Armed Forces (JAF) has ordered four multi-purpose armoured platform (MAP) armoured personnel carriers (APCs), Jordanian defence sources have told IHS Jane’s .

The MAP was developed by the King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) from the hulls of the JAF’s retired Tariq (Centurion) main battle tanks (MBTs) to create a vehicle with better protection than the M113 APCs currently used by the JAF.

KADDB has also developed other variants including mortar and ammunition carriers.
