One of the key features of the Kamrat-M is its adaptability to various conditions. Whether it's the scorching heat of a desert or the icy terrains of the Arctic, the vehicle is designed for optimal performance. The Ukrainians are thus focusing on the adaptability of their vehicle, likely for export purposes, but also to adapt to the varied conditions of the Ukrainian battlefield.

The combat version of the vehicle can be equipped with a wide array of weapon stations and armaments. This allows for effective firing in various combat scenarios, from close-quarters combat to long-range engagements. The vehicle's modular design means it can be easily configured to carry machine guns, grenade launchers, anti-tank missile systems, and even remotely controlled weapon stations (RCWS).

Its Ford Motor Company 6.7L Power Stroke V-8 diesel engine ensures that the vehicle doesn't require frequent refueling, allowing for extended missions without the need for logistical support. With a fuel tank capacity of 160 liters and a driving range of 700 km, this vehicle is built for endurance.

The vehicle offers both ballistic and anti-mine protection, in accordance with STANAG4569 Level 1 and Level 2a standards. Whether it's a five-person pick-up version or a ten-person personnel carrier, the Kamrat-M provides a high level of protection against bullets, shrapnel, and light explosions.

The vehicle's gross weight ranges from 8,845 kg to an optional 12,000 kg, with a payload capacity of 2,000 kg. It measures between 6,500 and 7,000 mm in length and 2,450 mm in width, depending on the version. The KAMRAT-M also features a maximum speed of 140 km/h on highways, thanks to its 330 hp engine that provides a torque of 983 Nm at 1800 rpm.

The Kamrat-M comes with a range of optional additional equipment, including an electrical winch, fire suppression systems, infrared cameras, and even NBC air filtration systems. It has the capability to tackle a gradient of 30°, a side slope of 20°, and a fording depth of 0.75 m.

The Ukrainians are thus aiming to develop their military industry for obvious reasons. However, given the adaptability of their vehicle, which is the primary selling point of Ukrainian Armor, they are thinking long-term. They aim to leverage their experience gained from the Russo-Ukrainian conflict to promote their indigenous industry and export it on the international stage.
