   The Nimr Haffet is essentially a new-generation version of the original Nimr 6x6, that appeared back in 2005. The original Nimr 6x6 was originally a joint Emirati and Jordanian project, with production taking place in Jordan. However eventually production was moved from Jordan and in 2011 production of the Nimr was re-launched in United Arab Emirates in a new factory. The Hafeet is produced by Nimr Automotive. The company is currently a leading manufacturer of tactical military vehicles in the Middle East and North Africa. Since 2015 the Nimr Automotive is a part of Emirates Defense Industries Company (EDIC). In 2017 UAE ordered 150 Hafeet vehicles. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2018.

   The Hafeet uses the same automotive components as the Nimr Ajban with 4x4 configuration, but has larger internal volume and can carry more payload.

   The main role of the Hafeet is to provide troops with logistical and utility support. Also there are some specialized versions of this vehicle. It is a purpose-designed military vehicle, which can operate in demanding conditions. It has good cross-country mobility and can travel over difficult terrain. The Hafeet has a payload capacity and size of a light truck. However due to its military nature the Hafeet can withstand heavy use or even abuse, far exceeding that of militarized commercial vehicles, or those based on commercial drivelines. Most versions of the Hafeet can carry loads with a maximum weight of 2 400 - 5 000 kg. This military vehicle can also tow trailers and light artillery pieces.

   There are 2-, 3- or 4-door versions of the Hafeet. All versions can be armored. The armored cab provides protection for the passengers against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters, mines and improvised explosive devices.

   The Hafeet can be equipped with a number of other protection elements, such as smoke grenade dischargers, fire suppression system, protective net against anti-tank rocket launchers, and even NBC protection system. Though this equipment is optional.

   Some models of the Ajban have a roof-mounted hatch. A gun ring is proposed as an option. The Ajban can be armed with various weapons, such as 7.62 mm or 12.7 mm machine gun, or 40 mm automatic grenade launcher. There are some specialized versions of the Hafeet, that carry various heavy armament and missiles.

   The Hafeet can be fitted with a battlefield management system.

   All versions of the Hafeet are using the same automotive components, that are compatible with the smaller Ajban. The Hafeet is powered by a Cummins ISBe 300 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 296 hp. Engine is mated to an Allison 6-speed automatic transmission. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system and run-flat tyres as standard. Also there is a recovery winch, which also comes as standard.

   There are numerous versions of the Nimr Hafeet. Due to its modular nature the vehicle can be configured to suit various battlefield roles.
