Developed by the Russian Defense Company Kurgan Machine-Building Plant, the Kurganets-25 was first introduced to the public during the military parade in Moscow for the Victory Day, 2015.
The Kurganets-25 IFV is equipped with a remote controlled multi-purpose weapon station with the 30mm 2A42 automated gun with selective ammunition supply (ammo load – 500 rounds), the 7.62mm Kalashnikov modernized tank machine gun (ammo load – 2,000 rounds), and two twin launchers for Kornet ATGM.
The IFV is also equipped with the outside surveillance cameras. The vehicle is modular-constructed so its production can be facilitated and accelerated.
