“The topic has been completely worked out by us, in the near future we are signing the last act with the Ministry of Defense. I believe that in the conditions of the current hostilities, a silent combat vehicle is needed, it will be in demand. Today we are working very closely with our customers in the person of the Ministry of Defense and other law enforcement agencies. This is a unique sample that is already in Nizhny Novgorod and is waiting in the wings ”,told Krasovitsky at the exhibition KADEX-2016.
According to the agency, the successful preliminary tests of the BTR-90 "Rostock" with a hybrid power plant were reported back in 2013.
“An armored personnel carrier with a hybrid power plant can move silently on molecular drives when the internal combustion engine is inoperative,” said the representative of the MIC Sergei Suvorov.
At the same time, he emphasized that “as long as the BTR can move only for a limited distance, but with the use of new types of energy storage devices, this distance can be increased tenfold.”
In addition, according to Suvorov, in the near future, “Rostok” may become remotely controlled.
