27th April 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Russian Ministry of Defence on 24 April confirmed that army reconnaissance units are to receive 15 Tiger-M 4x4 armoured vehicles (pictured).

Each Tiger-M is armed with an Arbalet-DM remote-controlled combat module designed for mounting on wheeled and tracked vehicles, surface vessels and fixed locations. It allows the operator to fire at enemy positions whilst both stationary and on the move.

Additionally, the reconnaissance units will be equipped with Aistenok and Fara-VR portable radars for surveillance on enemy targets and firing positions. Both are fully operable in all weather conditions.

Shephard Defence Insight reports that the Russian military has ordered 2000 Tiger-M units and has so far received 1000 from the Military Industrial Company based in Moscow.
