He added that the decision to adopt the Ural-VV for use had been made following the type’s successful tests involving preproduction vehicles. The early Ural-VVs are reported to have been provided to the Internal Force as far back as 2014.

The Ural-VV armored combat vehicle is designed for the Internal Force of the Russian Ministry of the Interior as troop carrier. It offers enhanced protection of its occupants, cargo and key units from small-arms fire and landmines. The vehicle is a derivative of the popular Ural-4320 6x6 truck.

The perimeter and roof of its armored module have Class 5 protection, its transparency and frontal side Class 6 protection and its engine compartment Class 3 protection. The vehicle’s bottom protects from the blast of 2 kg of high explosives.
