The Deputy CEO of Concern Tractor Plants claims that Russia will produce an infantry fighting vehicle which will feature capabilities which are superior to those of foreign models.

"We will produce new IFVs, the technical characteristics and price of which will be the best in the world. Another good fighting vehicle, the Puma, is made in Germany. Our IFV is not inferior to the Puma in terms of technical and tactical characteristics but is superior in swimming capacity," Alexei Losev said.


He stressed that one of the main advantages of the Russian IFV over European models is its ability to overcome water obstacles.

The vehicle will participate in the Victory Parade on Red Square in Moscow on May 9 alongside other new military vehicle models.

It's just a shame really that warfare is becoming increasingly airborne and at long ranges. Whilst I see the appeal of such a machine, I would say that it may take some time until it's effectiveness is proven.

Good luck, Russia. They may be able to make the best for now. But sure, something better will soon eventually follows. America might not be one, but sure it's China. China is insecure to almost all country around even to its allies like the Russia. Also, how is Russia able to come up with such equipment? Why don't they just focus their money and effort into improving their economy?

So these armored vehicles are a whole lot better than tanks? Moreover, they added a "swimming" capacity, so does that mean the vehicle can transform into a submarine or a war ship? It will take some time to surpass what the Germans have already achieved. Rest assured, they won't be able to produce such vehicles before the war on Crimea will end.

This tells us the attitude of the Russian government. Even though the falling oil prices endanger the economy, the Russians prefer to spend their cash on hardware instead of trying to safeguard their economy and try to diversify it. Let's hope someone talks some sense into them..
