    I never liked the idea of putting so much weight on just four wheels. Especially on a vehicle expected to operate in areas were road conditions are less than desirable.

    Isn't that Ural SM-3?

    I though Ural Taifun was 6 wheeled... Like this:

    Do you know what the weight of the mine was (anyone)? The results were very respectable for both tests... - The second hit on the vehicle was much larger than small arms fire, or at least it looks that way.

    I can't say for sure, but on the lighter side of life you see a V. Putin sighting at 3:21 of the video...Very Happy

    In the video he said it can withstand 8kg explosive of "trajectory", i think he meant EFP, but maybe it's just 8kg explosive device.

    Thanks Werewolf, that seems to be right.

    "Trajectory" makes it sound like they're talking about shaped charges which is highly doubtful, very few MBT's can survive 8 kg's worth of shaped charge and that's with ERA for that matter and it's absolutely not possible for an MRAP to survive such circumstances. By "trajectory" they probably mean IED's designed to fire the explosive's fragments in one direction to maximize damage on vehicles, which sounds much more reasonable and realistic. Either way the new Kamaz Typhoon vehicles are fulfilling their role as an MRAP and their design parameters (if not exceeding them), and living up to their high expectations.

    They did not say what the size was in the actual test. But later they say it can survive a blast from 8 kg TNT equivalent explosion.

    There's different variations of the Kamaz Typhoon, there's the Kamaz-63968 Typhoon-K:





    ...Then there's the Kamaz-63969 Typhoon which is the one in your photos:




    The former is a modular APC, the latter is a dedicated MRAP. Of course there's also the competing Ural Typhoons.

    Russia to Roll Out New Armored Truck Taifun-U on Victory Day

    The Ural Taifun-U mine resistant ambush vehicle was developed by the Ural Auto Works in late 2013 as part of the larger Taifun vehicle program.

    The Taifun-U will debut during the upcoming May 9th Victory Day parade in Moscow.

    "We handed several test units of Taifun-U to the Defense Ministry for trials… Some of them will take part in the Victory Day parade on Red Square,” the plant’s chief technician, Sergei Suvorov, told Izvestiya newspaper.

    According to the paper, the pilot batch of 30 Taifun-U vehicles cost the Defense Ministry just over 1 billion rubles, or 35.8 million individually.

    The Taifun-U is equipped with a laminated composite armor, made of steel and ceramic. It provides all-round protection from 14.5-mm armor-piercing rounds and can withstand blasts equivalent to 8 kg of TNT anywhere under its hull.

    The vehicle can also be fitted with a remotely controlled weapon station, armed with a 7.62-mm or 12.7-mm machine gun.

    Exclamation
    Something has been bothering me.

    Why, from the Typhoon familly - have we only seen MRAPs and APCs?
    Where are the Typhoon mortar carriers, ambulances, AT-vehicles, combat engineering vehicles, IFVs, etc...?

    Aaannnnnd

    If commonality of parts & logistics is the feature, then why are GAZ (Ural) and KAMAZ based vehicles being intermixed?
