The Typhoon-M is base on the BTR-82 8x8 armoured personnel carrier chassis equipped with a very extensive sensor array, including radar, thermal imaging night vision and echolocation, jammers to disable IEDs and even its own little hand-launched surveillance drone.

The first vehicle was delivered in 2013 to Serpukhov branch of the Military Academy of Strategic Missile Forces.

These new anti-sabotage armoured vehicles will be delivered to all reequipped missile units this year, spokesman for Russian Strategic Missile Forces Major Dmitry Andreyev told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.

“Typhoon-M combat anti-sabotage vehicles are unique as they are armed with unmanned aerial combat vehicles and can detect the enemy at a distance of up to five kilometres,” he said.

Strategic Missile Forces are improving their combat capability to fight terrorism and are keeping all existing Russian computerized security systems on combat alert.

Combat anti-sabotage vehicles Typhoon-M passed all tests in 2012. Their delivery to missile formations started in 2013.
