Production history[edit | edit source]

Although similar to the South African Buffel, it is built entirely by the Sri Lanka Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (SLEME). Used very often by the Sri Lankan forces both as an armoured fighting vehicle and for protection against mines and IEDs and so played a major role in the Sri Lanka civil war. The Unibuffel is the improved version of the Unicorn which was also built by the SLEME. More than 53 Unibuffels had been manufactured as of 2006. The vehicle is powered by a TATA engine which can deal easily with rough terrain.[2]
