Russian Silent Robotic Armored Vehicle

1

Russia’s Military-Industrial Company has developed and tested a hybrid-powered silent armored personnel carrier (APC) that could eventually be remotely operated.

The Krymsk APC, based on the BTR-90 Rostok vehicle, has a hybrid engine and can move virtually silently on a battery-driven electric motor when its diesel engine is turned off.

The Krymsk is in effect a remotely controlled platform, which could subsequently be developed into a “robotized platform”.

During a recent test the vehicle showed a maximum speed of 97 kilometers per hour (60 mph), accelerating to 80 kilometers per hour in 33 seconds.
