Technical data 
The 2T Stalker is armed with a stabilized 30-mm cannon and a coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun. A unique feature of this armored reconnaissance vehicle is that it carries not only two Ataka (AT-6 Spiral) anti-tank missiles, but also two Igla (SA-18 Grouse) anti-aircraft missiles on retractable launchers. Some reload missiles are carried inside the hull. There is also a 30-mm automatic grenade launcher. Vehicle is capable of carrying additional equipment, comprising land mines and special equipment pods. The fire control system ensures simultaneous engagement of two targets, e.g. an armored threat by the anti-tank missile, and infantry by the automatic grenade launcher.
The 2T Stalker has a mine-protection comparable to that of the main battle tanks. The front armor can withstand 35-mm rounds. However Belarusian designers consider that it's primary protection provisions are high speed and maneuverability. The vehicle is fitted with a multi-level protection system. The primary protection provisions are speed and manoeuvrability. Then comes reduced radar, infra-red and optical signature. The low visibility in the radar band is provided by a special hull shape and the use of special materials and coating. One of the thermal protection features is the use of passive night vision devices. Another level of protection is ensured by a self-protection and laser-warning suite. As the vehicle is exposed to laser radiation, the crew is notified about it, and smoke flares are fired in the direction of the radiation source. Finally, the armor protection. The crew is protected from 35mm rounds through the frontal arc. The vehicle anti-mine protection is equal to that of the main battle tanks.
