Remdizel represented more than ten of its armoured vehicles on the Typhoon and Tornado chassis with various payload at Army 2019 exposition. On the Typhoon chassis, enterprises of military-industrial complex set weapon stations with small arms and grenade launchers of different caliber, install mortar launchers, equipment for mine layers and mine exploders, mount communication and fire control equipment. Tornado is positioned not only as an armoured truck but also as a platform for Pantsir-SM complex.

Alexander Matveev, Deputy Chief Development Officer, Igor Zarakhovich, Chief Designer from Remdizel special vehicles plant told about the vehicles presented at the tactical and technical forum.

Military experts who visited the forum think that it is a global trend to use explosion-proof vehicles.

According to the officers of the Russian armed forces, the main features of these vehicles are powerful engines, high crew protection level, easy maintenance in comparison to that of heavy armoured vehicles, a relatively good efficiency, possibility to set special equipment and armament for various tasks. Due to all these features, mine protected vehicles are in demand in armed conflict.
