- Buratai said this at the 77 Regular Recruits Intake passing out parade at the Nigerian Army Depot in Zaria, Kaduna state
Chief of army staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, on Saturday, October 27, said the Nigerian Army would in 2025 begin the production of combat vehicles in the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Buratai made this known at the 77 Regular Recruits Intake passing out Parade at the Nigerian Army Depot in Zaria, Kaduna state. notes that the army chief said that through research, the Depot had already produced five patrol vehicles named “TYB”.

He said: "Let me at this juncture commend the commandant, depot, Nigerian Army and his team for the uncommon research and development feat which led to the production of five patrol vehicles, named TYB Robile in my honour.

“By this breakthrough, the Nigerian Army is poised to become self-reliant in class `B’ combat vehicles by the year 2025.

“Furthermore, the ultra-modern industry military range which I will commission today is one of the cottage technological training aids designed to improve recruits marksmanship skills and economise use of old classes of army ammunition for training.

“I, therefore, urge the Depot Nigerian Army to maximise its use to enhance the quality of young soldiers trained in the Nigerian Army."

Meanwhile, previously reported that the Nigerian army formally went into partnership with Nigerian indigenous motor manufacturing company, Innoson Motors Manufacturing Company, for modification of some of its equipment, local production of armoured fighting vehicles and other military hardware.

This was made manifest during a meeting between the management of the company led by the chairman, Chief Innocent Chukwuma and the leadership of the Nigerian army led by the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General TY Buratai, at the Army Headquarters, Abuja on Tuesday, January 2.
