Russia to Buy New Army Vehicles
The Russian Defense Ministry is to purchase a range of new vehicles, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced during a visit to a military test center.
“We have decided to start the serial purchase of a range of vehicles … we need the most mobile and modern vehicles for transporting our forces and supplies to areas of military activity,” Shoigu said at a Defense Ministry test center in the Moscow Region, where he watched a display of Russian-made military vehicles and equipment. He did not specify which vehicles would be purchased, in what numbers, or when.
The demonstration featured the Typhoon-U and Typhoon-K six-wheel transporters, Bulava and Bulat vehicles, Volk 1 (VPK-3927) and Volk 2 multirole wheeled vehicles, and the Rys and Tigr-M armored jeeps, as well as Vityaz twin-compartment tracked vehicles for harsh climatic conditions.
