The General Staff of the Armed Forces will make the final decision on the system to be adopted, he noted.

“The industry may propose a variety of technical options to the Defense Ministry but it may not act as the contracting authority,” Rogozin said.

Ground Forces commander Col. Gen. Vladimir Chirkin earlier said that the military will take delivery of new armored vehicles some time after 2015.

The Kurganets range is new family of tracked armoured vehicles for airborne troops. The Kurganets-25 tracked armored infantry fighting vehicle could provided high degree of commonality with the new Russian project of main battle tank Armata.

The Kurganets-25 will evolve into various models, gradually replacing BMP and BMD and MT-LB and other types of tracked armored platforms in the Russian armed forces.
