"In the midterm perspective, we plan to create and introduce into service a family of combat vehicles for the naval infantry of the Russian Navy, designed to deliver naval infantry units to battle locations, destroy (strike) the adversary’s armored objects and personnel, render fire support to assault forces during all stages of their combat operations," the official said.
He said the new vehicles will operate "in any latitudes and climatic conditions, including Arctic ones."

It will have a crew of three and a passenger capacity of ten.
