Recently, Zev Technologies has announced their new partnership with SAS veteran Christian Craighead. Craighead gained notoriety for his courageous and instrumental actions in saving lives and leading an offensive that helped end the terrorist attack on the DusitD2 Complex in Nairobi back in 2019.
The partnership with Criaghead will have Zev Tech engineers and designers working together to develop a new lineup of Core Combat handguns. Later down the road he will be collaborating with Zev’s team to create a Core Combat series of rifles as well. Craighead will have a signature lineup of products with Zev Technologies. The first being the Craighead OZ9 handgun.
Zev’s Director of Brand Management, Dan Groce spoke of the collaboration between Zev and Mr. Craighead.
“Team ZEV is more than excited to have Christian on board to help us develop our Combat line of firearms. Being a master at his craft allows us to transfer that knowledge and apply it to design, resulting in industry-leading innovation.”
Brief History Of 2019 Nairobi Atttack
The DusitD2 complex terrorist attack occurred from January 15th to 16th 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya, which left 22 civilians dead and all five terrorists killed.
The terrorist group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on the DusitD2 complex. They terrorist organization claimed the attack was in response to President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.
During the nineteen plus hour seige of the complex Christian Craighead was able to kill two out of the five terrorists and evacuate countless civilians to safety as he cleared the building of the complex. Photos during this time show Craighead’s courageous actions as entered buildings alone looking for civilians to escort to safety.
It isn’t unknown when the Zev Technologies will be releasing the first collaboration between the two partners. I do believe it could be soon due to this announcement. So, we will keep a watchful eye for anymore news upon this partnership between Zev and Craighead.
