As part of demonstrations to an unnamed Asian customer, Kyiv-based LUCH tested its guided missile from M113 tracked armored personnel carrier.

The demo took place on the army’s proving ground in South Asia.

A company official was quoted as saying by Defence Blog that the live-fire test was carried out from the M113 platform at a 15-degree roll angle. The official noted that all targets were successfully destroyed and the potential client was delighted with the accuracy of Ukraine-made missiles.

Pakistani General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) visited Ukraine earlier this year. He witnessed field tests of various combat vehicles and systems, including modern Ukrainian missile systems developed by the LUCH. Bajwa has also shown interest in the Skif anti-tank system, which is an export version of the Stugna missile system.
