Armament
The Kamaz-63968 Typhoon can be equipped with a remote weapon station mounted on the top of the crew compartment. This weapon system can be armed with a machine gun up to 14.5 mm calibre.
Design and protection
The layout of the Kamaz-63968 Typhoon is based on a Kamaz-6396 armoured cab chassis, with the engine behind the cab and the troop compartment at the rear. The soldiers enter and leave the Kamaz-63968 Typhoon via a single door at the rear of the troop compartment. The crew cabin and the rear compartment are fully enclosed and provide a protection against firing of small arm and shell splinters (composite body armor: ceramic and steel). In either side of the troop compartment are two bullet-proof windows but no firing port. The Kamaz-63968 Typhoon is also protected against landmines and IEDs. It is claimed that this armored truck can withstand 8 kg TNT blast thanks to its V-hull. The driver sits at the front of the vehicle on the left side with the commander to the right. Both have a large bulletproof windscreen to the front and a side door that opens to the front. Six rectangular hatches are mounted on the top of the troop compartment.

This armoured truck is motorized with a 450 hp Kamaz 740.354-450 V8 turbocharged diesel engine coupled to a Allison six-speed automatique transmission. The vehicle is also fitted with central tyre inflation system and run-flat tyres and has a full-time all-wheel drive.
