“These machines will go primarily to the Southern Military District,” she said. The district incorporates Russia’s troubled North Caucasus republics.

Russia signed a deal with Italy’s Iveco company in December on the semi-knocked down assembly of Lynx vehicles in the central Russia city of Voronezh.

Localization of production at the Voronezh plant is currently 10 percent, Kovalchuk said, adding that by 2014 it is to reach 50 percent.

Lynx is a light multirole armored vehicle developed in 2001 by the Italian Defence Company Iveco Defense Vehicles. It ensures high mobility and protection against anti-tank and anti-personnel mines
