The Lazar 2 is a multi-purpose 8x8 armoured vehicle in the category of MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected). This vehicle is designed and manufactured by the Serbian Defense Company YugoImport. The Lazar 2 was unveiled for the first time to the public during the Defense Exhibition Partner 2013 which was held in Belgrade from the 25 to 28 June 2013. LAZAR II 8x8 MRAV/MRAP Multi-Purpose Armored Vehicle 8x8 is designed following modern world trends in development of a wheeled armored vehicles families intended for carrying out of a number of tactical tasks in different armed conflicts. The concept and technical solutions of the vehicle are especially adjusted to the requirements of modern infantry units and special units engaged in carrying out of the tasks of asymmetric warfare, antiterrorist and peace keeping actions, as well as wide range of medium level armed conflicts. Special accent is made on vehicle actions in urban conditions, inhabited areas and highly intersected terrain, against enemy extensively using ambushes, anti-tank (AT) mines, improvised explosives devices (IED), etc. LAZAR II is also enabling effective engagement of bunkers, armored fighting vehicles, as well as MBTs. The vehicle concept is merging of most important features of MRAV (Multi Role Armored Vehicle), and MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle) armored vehicle concepts, featuring with very high all-terrain/all climate conditions mobility, high fire power, high all-round ballistic protection, high AT mines/IED protection as well as possibility of battlefield observation and target engagement by embarked crew personal weapons. Vehicle concept provides these unique combinations of basic characteristics of the two classes of modern wheeled armored vehicles exceptionally important in the world today. All the main assemblies: power pack components, steering components, power pack, electric system components, hydraulic-pneumatic system components, armament - can be replaced in the field in a very short time. In August 2013, Pakistan has announced that the Pakistani army has procured three Serbian LAZAR II AFV’s for evaluation with the possibility of constructing facilities to produce the AFV/APC locally, under license.
- Lazar 1: was the first generation of Lazar series of multi-purpose MRAP 8x8 armoured vehicle.

The modular concept of the vehicle provides the possibility of integration of a wide spectrum of armament system solutions. At partner 2013, the APC version Lazar 2 was fitted with a one-man turret armed with an M86 automatic 30mm cannon with double-feed mechanism. The M86 30 mm cannon has been designed for engagement of ground targets (manpower and lightly armoured targets) and aerial targets (helicopters and low flying aircraft). A remote weapon station is mounted on the roof of the turret armed with an M86 7.62mm machine gun. The turret can rotate 360° at a maximum speed 55°/sec with an elevation from -7° to +65°. Two smoke grenade dischargers are mounted to each side of the turret. Two anti-tank launchers units are mounted on the right side top of the turret which are able to fire upgraded anti-tank missile MALYUTKA (-2T and -2F) in SACLOS (Semi-Automatic Command to Line Of Sight) guidance mode. The armament is coupled with wide-angle CCD camera, day sight subsystem with 12x magnification, thermal imager and eye-safe laser range-finder.

The Lazar 2 APC version is fitted with one-man turret armed with a 30mm automatic cannon, one 7.62mm machine gun and two launchers for anti-tank missiles.
The layout of the Lazar 2 is standard with the driver at the front of the hull, with the engine at his right, the turret in the middle and and the troop's compartment at the rear. The hull is designed to provide comfortable space to 2+10 crew with personal equipment and weapons. The space is designed in accordance with MIL-STD 1472. Two doors in the rear combined with rear ramp enable as well designed crew layout, allow rapid embarkation / disembarkation of the dismounting infantry team crew. This unique feature is enabling variations of disembarking procedure in dependence with tactical situation. During embarkation, side doors can be side-opened, protecting the disembarking team from enemy small arms fire. The embarked infantry squad compartment is designed so as to provide for the soldiers to be oriented toward large windows made of ballistic glass, and towards gun holes, thus enabling them excellent visibility and survey of the surrounding environment and their combat engagement by using of their personal armament. All the crew have superb possibility of observing the surroundings through armored windows with the same level of ballistic protection as the main armor. This way, rapid and efficient deployment of the weapons from the RCWS ) is possible, as well as the use of and personal weapons through dedicated 12 fire ports (5 ports on both sides, and 2 on the rear door). The design of armored body provides for fast installation and replacement of additional armor, and the installation of the same does not degrade basic functions of the vehicle. The hull of the Lazar 2 provides a basic ballistic protection for the crew and troop to the level 2 (STANAG 4569) and mine protection level 2a and 2b. With additional armour the ballistic protection is increased to level and mine protection to level 3a and 3b.
The Lazar 2 with the installed power pack and independent suspension system provides excellent driving features on and off roads. The Lazar 2 is motorized with a four-stroke diesel engine with six V-laid cylinders, 4 valves per cylinder and a turbocharger, Cummins ISM500 (500hp) with hydraulic servo-wheel and adjustable steering wheel.
Oscillating, foldable seats in combination with improved independent suspension absorb all shocks and vibrations, thus increasing crew comfortability even in the harshest off-road conditions. The Lazar 2 is equipped with roof-hanged seats for crew and embarked squad to increase crew survivability in case of AT mine /IED impact. Central tire pressure regulation system is installed in the vehicle, and run-flat inserts may be installed into the tires which provide for driving of the vehicle even with damaged tires. The LAZAR 2 is also equipped with C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence) systems for tasks planning and creation of the digital situation map. Driver’s optoelectronic subsystem provides enhanced visualization for the driver, by provision of situational image in front and rear to the vehicle, by use of thermal imaging camera, CCD TV camera and CCD IR day/night camera. In that manner, better situational awareness as well as increased security are ensured during day, night and adverse weather conditions. Driver’s navigation software is enabling position indication on digital map, distance calculation, position of different topographic entities, as well as zoom-in/out options, position of allied/foe positions (“blue force tracking” & “red force marking”)
