The new combat vehicle is successfully completing the program of its tests, the company said.

“All the tests, both production and state trials, have been 100% implemented as maximum loads have to be tested in accordance with the chief designer’s decision to find serious faults, if any, and have the time to eliminate them before the vehicle’s acceptance,” the company’s press office said.

No serious faults have been exposed during the tests, Remdizel stressed.

“Some minor improvements but this is a natural process,” the company said.

“We can’t say that the vehicle has undergone any major changes. No, this has not happened,” the company said. A source in the defense industry told TASS that the paratroopers’ Taifun vehicle was set for new trials at special military ranges, which would be over in 2019. “After that, the vehicle can be delivered to the troops.”
