MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. Russia’s military-industrial company VPK LLC has designed a remote-controlled version of the wheeled armored vehicle Tigr, armed with a 30-mm gun, CEO Aleksandr Krasovitsky told TASS in an interview.
"A new product will be rolled off the line that we haven’t mentioned before - a special purpose vehicle Tigr equipped with a combat module and a 30-mm automatic gun," he said.
Not only is this armored vehicle capable of moving and firing on an operator’s commands, it can also identify and track targets on its own.
"This machine has been developed in cooperation with our counterparts at the joint stock company 766 UPTK with permission from the Defense Ministry at its own expense," he said,
The Tigr’s combat module is identical in design and fire control system to the automatic remote-controlled combat module, armed with a 30-mm gun that was created for "Product Uran-9" (a robotic attack mechanism - TASS)," Krasovitsky said.
The newly-developed vehicle is unparalleled.
"We’ve managed to mount a 30-mm gun on a two-axle armored vehicle with a mass of under nine tonnes. The vehicle can use ordinary roads without any restrictions," Krasovtisky added.
The remote-controlled Tigr is currently undergoing test runs and firing tests, and has performed impressively so far. TASS publishes video footage of the armored vehicle's first tests.
