QUITOL (India), March 28. /TASS/. The tests of an infantry fighting vehicle with a Russian combat module, which the United Arab Emirates is developing, will start next year, Director for Military and Technical Cooperation of Russia’s armored vehicle manufacturer Uralvagonzavod Igor Kulikov said on Monday.
"As of today, we’re cooperating with Emirates Defence Technologies. We’re preparing a prototype for tests on the UAE territory and hope they will be successful. The trials are planned in 2017," he said on the sidelines of the Defexpo India-2016 arms show.
Uralvagonzavod CEO Oleg Siyenko said earlier the tests of the new infantry fighting vehicle would start in 2016.
The UAE is developing the Enigma IFV, which is expected to be equipped with the Russian-made AU-220M combat module and a 57mm gun developed by Russia’s Burevestnik Central R&D Institute, part of Uralvagonzavod.
The module is a modernized version of the A-220 ship-borne system designed for wheeled and tracked chassis. The module with a 57mm gun was earlier expected to be used in the Russian-French IFV Atom but France quit the project over the sanctions imposed on Russia.
