The Russian Army has carried out an exercise using the new Typhoon-K mine-resistant ambush protected vehicle for the first time.

The exercise, which involved more than 500 troops and up to 50 pieces of hardware, saw a motorised rifle brigade of the 41st combined arms army of the Central Military District, destroy a mock enemy in the foothills of the Western Sayan with the support of army aviation.

During the exercise, the Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle was used to conduct ISR in the mountainous area and reveal a convoy of military equipment of the mock enemy. The motorised infantry targeted and destroyed the convoy, while army aviation Mi-8 helicopters provided fire support from the air.
