Typhoon-K opens to foreign markets

29th August 2016 - 12:24 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Russia-based Remdiesel, a Kamaz subsidiary, and state defence export agency Rosoboronexport have entered a joint programme for promoting the Typhoon-K (Kamaz-53949) mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicle in foreign markets, it was announced in August.

Apart from promoting the Typhoon-K MRAP to foreign markets, the programme aims to receive proposals from foreign customers for supply of the MRAP, and maintain and increase the scientific and engineering capabilities of Remdiesel interests for the development of competitive products. The programme is planned to be carried out in 2017–2018.

Anatoly Isaikin, Rosoboronexport's chief executive officer, said that the Typhoon-K MRAP will be promoted in North Africa, the Middle East, Central and Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

The implementation process of the programme has already begun according to officials. Rosoboronexport's marketing plans, international exhibitions and salons will be supplemented by relevant activities and themes. These activities will include a showcase of the 4x4 Typhoon-K, which Remdiesel has to manufacture before the end of 2016, based on the specially-developed export version.

The Typhoon-K MRAP is designed to support combined arms and special units, including peacekeeping forces, in various conditions. It can be used to transport military cargo and personnel, and as the base chassis for the installation of various technical systems and weapons.
