    The picture shows more than a single copy of the Typhoon. This, apparently, is the KamAZ-63968 Typhoon-K. There is also Ural-63095 "Typhoon-U", Ural-63099 "Typhoon-U" and KamAZ-63969 "Typhoon-K".
    From Wikipedia:
    "All vehicles of the family are unified in terms of engines (YaMZ-536), information and control system, mine protection and suspension. On all vehicles for transporting personnel, it is possible to install a remotely controlled machine gun module. Combined armor protection (ceramics and steel), as well as bulletproof glasses provide circular protection according to the fourth level of the STANAG 4569 standard (14,5 mm armor-piercing bullets B-32) [12]. Mine protection of vehicles is provided by a V-shaped bottom, explosion-absorbing seats and corresponds to level 3b in accordance with STANAG 4569 (explosive device up to 8- mi kg in TNT equivalent) [13]. The roofs of the vehicles have hatches for emergency evacuation of personnel in the event of a rollover. Video cameras are installed along the perimeter of the armored vehicles, which allows observing the situation without leaving the transport module, as well as controlling the armored vehicle in case of impossibility to use the frontal glass. Living space on all machines is hermetically sealed, with artificialmaintained by overpressure, filtration of the incoming air is provided by the FVU-100 unit. All machines of the family can be made in three-axle or four-axle versions ".

    Good news ! (Yes, yes, I know ) laughing
    There were just rumors that KAMAZ would be abandoned in favor of the Urals, and I really like it - we haven’t done such brutal cars yet.

    Super. They must be driven not only by the standard of a 500 km march along public roads, but a march along the same bumps and rough terrain to a distance of the same 500 km. The skill will be, God forbid.

    I liked KamAZ-63969 Typhoon more. The 68th is too heavy. It looks like a barn on wheels, and the booking is weaker.

    Serious cars must be driven by serious guys! KAMAZ has great prospects. The plant essentially works wonders.
