The factory developed the armored vehicle within a short period of time, under conditions relating to the ongoing military action in eastern Ukraine, as the army is not fully equipped with the necessary equipment, the factory's director Vladyslav Sopita said in a press release.

According to the company, the newly developed vehicle has a number of advantages over its competitors. For instance, various combat modules can be mounted on top of it.

"The capacity of the factory allows us to manufacture 50 vehicles a month," the press service quoted Sopita as saying.
