According to Remdizel, the new vehicle was accepted for supply to the Russian Armed Forces in September by order of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. By the end of 2021, the military should receive the first batch of 11 "Partner" armored vehicles. All equipment will go into service with the Airborne Forces, at least as stated in June this year in the Ministry of Defense.

By order of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation in September 2021, a special escort and control vehicle 4386 was adopted to supply the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The armored vehicle "Partner" was created on the basis of the Typhoon dedicated to the Airborne Forces, specifically for escorting convoys. In addition, a mobile control center can be created on its basis. This new version benefits from increased protection. It is equipped with a remotely controlled combat module BM-30-D (32B01) developed by the Central Research Institute Burevestnik JSC, with a 30-mm 2A42 automatic cannon in a casing and a 7.62-mm PKTM machine gun paired with it. Just like the Typhoon-VDV, the Partner can be air transported and airdropped.

Notice that Typhoon is a family of Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) armored vehicles in service since 2014. Around 120 Russian companies including KamAZ, Gaz-Group, and Bauman University, etc. are taking part in the Typhoon program, whose main aim is to design a fundamentally new unified platform for all Russian armored wheeled vehicles.
