Future Atlet-based vehicles could be fitted with a wide range of special equipment and armaments.

Military-Industrial Company (VPK) expects to begin serial production of its Atlet 4x4 platform for the Russian Ground Forces this year after the armoured vehicle successfully completed state trials.

There are only three known variants of Atlet: two of them (ASN 233122 and AMN 233121) were involved in the recently concluded trials.
