ASTANA, June 2. /TASS/. Russia’s military-industrial company VPK hopes to sign a contract with Egypt soon to provide a batch of Tiger armored vehicles.
"If contract signing and progress were to be rated on a scale from zero to 100%, I’d say we are at the 85% mark now," VPK CEO Alexander Krasovitsky told TASS at the KADEX-2016 exhibition in Kazakhstan on Thursday. "The vehicle is in great demand and its capabilities are well-known. I would not like to make any guesses for now, but we hope that the contract will be signed soon."
Tiger is a multi-role cross-country vehicle armed with a missile system.
