    Are these Typhoon 4x4s air-droppable?

    I doubt it is a AA version. It depend what optics it has. But against helicopters it can be dangerous. Maybe it has a thermals and a laser rangefinder which would help targeting any target.

    I would think an AA version would have roof mounted 360 degree independent optics for scanning without having to spin the turret... having to swing the turret around all the time to find targets would make it very visible from the air.

    Also they have a few missiles that would be rather good for SAM use like Kornet-EM and Pine they could probably fit too... or at least Igla-S or Verba.

    Should almost certainly be able to shoot at air targets but likely not optimised for such.

    Interesting there is no pano or commander sight on top that can turn independently of the turret for a 360 degree view...

    Perhaps this is like the BRDM-2 where there is a gunner and a commander/gunner so the commander doesn't need a separate sight.

    The photo of the front of the turret shows what is likely a covered optical port on the right side looking at the vehicle with a hatch presumably to load ammo for the coaxial machine gun. The large panel on the other side of the gun... could it be a radar or radio communicaiton system to set off airburst 30mm shells?

    The rear centre large hatch would be for removing the guns and perhaps loading the 30mm cannon ammo...


    Looks like a neat little vehicle....
