Work for the development of this new universal platform is conducted in the framework of a Russian State program of armament from 2011 to 2020. The goal of this program is to provide a new family of unified armoured vehicle, characterized by high armor protection for the soldiers. The same development with "Kurganet-25" and "Boomerang" is on the way to create a single platform for light and wheeled vehicles.

All the new combat vehicles will be equipped with new weapon systems to increase the firepower and the range of fire. On-board equipment is designed to be upgraded with unlimited possibilities of modernization. All the vehicles were be transportable by air and rail, and integrated into a single network of communication.

The Russian army already prepares the implementation of infrastructure and staff training for the entry into service of these new vehicles.
