      Hardly. Rather, protection against standard small arms. By the way, it is not indicated how much it goes on water and under what excitement.

    You took off the tongue: the design is somehow "sloppy." I have the impression that the Koreans “washed down” these K808 and K806 for anything, but not for battle. Still, in a combat situation, substituting as a target is something I don’t know how to describe

    it’s not clear why they need it? cross the highway?
    The target itself is huge, vertical high sides, almost vertical frontal armor ...
    An ideal tarantas for fighting popular unrest, if you put a water cannon instead of a machine gun (and attach a barrel to the back), but what to do with it in combat conditions? especially in the mountains - it’s not clear ...

    How will you respond about Typhoon ?:


    bully

    Typhoon - can move much more people (at least twice, 16 versus 8), in addition, it can be equipped as a staff car, a mobile first-aid post, etc. etc. due to the sufficiently large dimensions. For example, to protect the infantry on the march, it is more suitable. And for sabotage and reconnaissance operations, there are other machines.
    In the case of the Korean, an attempt to make a universal car for all occasions, as a rule a failure.
