During a breaching training exercise that was held on March 22, 2021, the Chinese army has used new tracked and wheeled engineer armored vehicles including Type 08 or VN1 in AVLB (Armored Vehicle-Launched Bridge) configuration as well as tracked engineer vehicles based on Type 77 and Type 08 amphibious IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) chassis.

In Ukraine, it was proposed to convert part of the outdated 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled howitzers into infantry fighting vehicles, called "Kevlar-E".

Bebeshev and Lieutenant-Colonel PhD Technical Sciences D. Metelev research the problem of preserving the capability of ground assault robotic systems in combat in an article in the Voennaya Mysl (Military Thought) journal. They suggest ways to deal with the problem by creating a control system for complex protection based on the theory of functional systems.
