The private company is developing a new infantry fighting vehicle based on a Soviet 2S1 Gvozdika 122mm self-propelled howitzer whose artillery system has been removed to give room to a 6-infantryman compartment and a Shturm remote weapon station manufactured by Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (KMDB). The main armament consists in a 30mm automatic gun (360 rounds in storage, 400 rds/min) having a 3,000m firing range, and two antitank missile lanchers. The vehicle remains operated by a 3-man crew (commander, gunner and driver). The original hull has been reinforced with a thicker armor

The engine compartment is located to the immediate rear of the front crew members with access hatches provided in the roof. The exhaust outlet is on the right side of the hull with the air inlet and outlet louvres being in the roof on the left side, in a similar arrangement to the 2S1 self-propelled artillery system.
