Specialists from OSTARA, a Lithuanian company, are attempting to build a fast rough terrain troop transport vehicle with a hybrid propulsion system.

The new vehicle, called the Krampus, is intended to provide secrecy, quick and versatile transportation over demanding terrain in order to meet the light-mobility needs of light infantry and special operations forces.

Krampus will be able to transport a maximum payload of more than 300 kg and up to two infantrymen in support of expeditionary missions. It will offer high higher speeds over rough terrains and, above all, have enemy detection avoidance capabilities.

The Krampus vehicle will be powered by a hybrid power electric motor coupled with high-performance batteries. The batteries are remotely-powered with a type 2 charging bay or inside-mounted diesel generator.
