Serial production of armored personnel carriers (APCs) with the Kurganets-25 tracked modular platform can be launched in 2017, First Vice-President and co-owner of Machinery & Industrial Group N.V. (Trantornye Zavody) Albert Bakov told TASS on Tuesday.
“Works on APCs, armored vehicles and armored recovery vehicles are underway. The [Kurganets-25] platform will be ready for all vehicles at the same time,” Bakov said on the sidelines of the Army-2015 forum.
The company’s vice-president said he does not see any obstacles for launching the aforementioned vehicles in serial production simultaneously. “Tests of undercarriage, engine are the same for all vehicles,” he noted.
