The Ukrainian armored vehicle manufacturer Inguar has just unveiled its concept for a new high-speed, maneuverable, lightweight vehicle.

According to its official statement, the company boasts that “compared to other types of Armed Forces of Ukraine, the platform will have relatively low cost and wide range of applications: transportation of a whole combat unit, carrying luggage and evacuation of wounded, mortar calculations, sniper units, PTRK units, air defense units.”

The unit will be able to be equipped with a mortar anti-tank complex and an “Amulet” anti-tank complex with two missiles. It can also be armed with either a machine gun (up to caliber 14,5mm) or an anti-tank missile weapon. It requires a crew of two and can seat eight combat-ready dismounts.

According to Inguar’s statement, the new vehicle is light and compact enough to fit inside An-178 or C-130 cargo planes.

The new vehicle is being developed to perform a wide variety of combat missions. These missions will include high-speed attacks, forward operating reconnaissance and scouting, coordinated air-dropped ground assaults, and multiple entry points integrated operations.

The vehicle will be able to scale a 60 percent incline and have a top speed of 180 km/h. Its off-road speed will be up to 100km/h at which point its suspensions will still be able to withstand a full load of 10 men and their equipment.

Scaling a 60 percent incline at such a speed is no small feat. Essentially, to be able to tackle that incline, the vehicle needs both sufficient power and traction.
