NIZHNY TAGIL (Sverdlovsk Region), September 9. /TASS/. Another delivery of infantry fighting vehicles (IFV) and armored personnel carriers (APC) based on the Kurganets-25 platform is slated for early next year, Alexander Klyuzhev, executive director of Tractor Plants’ subsidiary Kurganmashzavod, told TASS on Wednesday.

"APCs and IFVs derived from the Kurganets-25 are planned for delivery in early 2016," he said without mentioning the number of vehicles the military would get.

Klyuzhev said the platform was planned as the baseline model for a family of derivatives. "They will be command, communications and other vehicles. In the near future, we are going to develop an armored recovery vehicle, an ARV," he added.

The Kurganets-25 platform is among such newly developed armored platforms as the heavy-weight Armata, medium-weight Boomerang and light-weight Taifun. It was announced earlier that the platform’s trials are slated for completion in 2016, while its combat vehicle derivatives may enter production in 2017-18. It also was reported that a 120-mm self-propelled artillery piece and a 57-mm antiaircraft system are planned for development on the basis of the Kurganets-25.
