"Yes, we carry on work. At issue are 50 machines and, probably, we shall sign a contact very soon," he said. Previously, Krasovitsky told TASS that the Egyptian Defense Ministry showed an interest in acquiring Tiger vehicles. The ministry officials have already inspected those machines.

The GAZ-2975 "Tigr" is a Russian high-mobility multipurpose military vehicle, manufactured by Military-Industrial Company LLC (BMK). The GAZ-2330 "Tigr" is the military version of the vehicle and has been referred to as "the Russian Humvee". The GAZ-2975 Tigr was officially taken into service at the end of 2006 and manufactured in 2007. The vehicle is intended to carry and protect personnel. It can accommodate up to 10 officers armed and in full gear. The vehicle has been field- and combat-tested before being sent to serve with OMON (Special Purpose Police Unit). The pilot production of GAZ-2330 “Tigr” started in 2004. In 2005 only 96 vehicles were made, mostly for MVD. The vehicle is very expensive now (by the Russian standards, of course), 60-65.000 US$ a piece. Though specialists consider GAZ-2330 a very successful vehicle.
