    This is all there was during the 1980s.  Nice to see Russia has the flexibility to test out new vehicle types and fill
    the gaps.

    With a small difference i would actually rather pick Uaz 469 than this. Uaz is a workhorse, donkey.

    The effort today creating small semiarmoured vehicles maybe too big. I think it is more an effort of the contractors to offer a small armoured solution, but all them are having problems with the tests and are not being finally delivered. They are fairly better than the precedents, but not reaching the current standards for combat vehicles.

    All them seem to be under the BMD-4M/BTR-MD and the Typhoon-K/Typhoon-U 6x6, that passed the tests fairly well and fast. In my view these 4 vehicles would be the right basis for the Airborne Troops, for the Naval Infantry, and for special military forces that need vehicles smaller than the Kurganets and the Boomerang.

    All these smaller vehicles can have a place for the non military security forces and as small transport/utility vehicle for out of contested areas in the military forces.

    Russian Defense Ministry invests in advanced Tiger armored vehicles

    The new vehicle will have a heavy-lift capacity and a V-shaped undercarriage and more comfortable seating for the combat crew and landing troops

    MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. Russia’s Military Industrial Company has started developing a new generation of the Tigr (Tiger) armored vehicles, with the first model likely to be rolled out in 2018, the company’s CEO, Alexander Krasovitsky, told TASS.

    "The development of the next-generation Tiger armored vehicles has been launched. The Defense Ministry has welcomed this project and has earmarked funding for it," he said.

    According to Krasovitsky, the company’s engineers are now working on sketches for the new "Tigers".

    "I think we will see this vehicle next year ‘in the flesh’," he added.

    Earlier Krasovitsky told TASS that the new vehicle will have a heavy-lift capacity and a V-shaped undercarriage and more comfortable seating for the combat crew and landing troops. The vehicle will also get Class 1, Class 2, and, over time, Class-3 protection under the common technical requirements.

    Russia considers testing unmanned Tigr 4x4 tactical vehicle fitted with 30 mm turret

    Russia’s Defense Ministry is considering the program of the trials of the Tigr unmanned armored vehicle equipped with the 30mm gun, CEO of Russia’s Military and Industrial Company Alexander Krasovitsky told TASS.

    The Military and Industrial Company is the developer of the Tigr unmanned armored vehicle, he added.

    "We have received the approval from the Defense Ministry to begin the work and we are doing it. Now, we are developing the test program for the vehicle and coordinating it with the Defense Ministry," Krasovitsky said.

    When the program is agreed upon, the company will sign contracts with organizations where the vehicle will be tested, he added.

    "Trials are a complicated process that requires considering lots of details for an objective result. It is too early to set the timeframe but we should complete them [the trials] as quickly as possible," Krasovitsky said.

    Earlier, the CEO told TASS that the company had developed a remote-controlled version of the Tigr armored vehicle.

    The Company VPK has developed the armoured vehicle in conjunction with JSC 766th Department of Engineering and Manufacturing Complement (Russian acronym: UPTK, Upravlenie Proizvodstvenno-Tekhnologicheskoi Komplektacii) as per the Russian Ministry of Defense`s (MoD) order.

    The design and the fire control system of the Tigr vehicle’s combat module are similar to that of the Uran-9 robotic system’s automatic remote-controlled combat module with the 30mm gun.


    The 2A72 30 mm gun fitted on the unmanned Tigr vehicle

    "The RCWS (Remote Controlled Weapon Station) mounted on the new modification of the Tigr vehicle is unified with the remote controlled turret of the Uran-9 unmanned combat ground vehicle (UCGV) developed by the 766th UPTK. Both modules are armed with a 2A72 automatic cannon chambered for 30x165mm round as the main weapon," said the Director General of VPK, Alexander Krasovitsky. "VPK has become the first defense enterprise in the world to integrate a 30 mm automatic cannon with a lightweight two-axle LUV with a combat weight less than 9 t, while retaining the vehicle`s maneuverability and cross-country capacity.", he added.

    The unmanned variant of the Tigr LUV is based on the VPK-233115 Tigr-M SPN Special Purpose Automobile (Russian acronym: ASN, Avtomobil Spetsialnogo Naznacheniya) also developed by the Military Industrial Company.

    The vehicle can be used for combat-reconnaissance operations, fire support missions, and convoys. The main armament can destroy light and medium armoured vehicles on the modern battlefield.

    The 2A72 30mm automatic cannon can also be used as anti-personnel and anti-armour weapon.
