Poltorak examined the military equipment developed by the plant including the "Dozor B" vehicle which was recently put into serial production.

"He [Poltorak] personally drove the new armored vehicle and remained satisfied with its features. It was easy to drive, gain speed, overcame obstacles, it moved well. However, he said that the fire power of the vehicle should be increased," the ministry said in its report.

"By the end of the year, ten armored vehicles must be delivered to the Ukrainian Armed Forces," Poltorak said.

He also talked to the tank crew and oversaw the repair of T-72 tanks. Poltorak pointed out that the plant has already given 62 tanks to the army this year, and that another 31 will be provided in a few months.

The Dozor-B reaches the speed of 120 km per hour and has a highway operating range of 700 km. The vehicle can overcome half-meter-high obstacles and its maximum roll angle is 24?. “Dozor-B” withstands the hits of armor-piercing bullets from the distance of 30 meters and 150-mm projectile wreckages, blasted within 50 meters. The hull of the armored personnel carrier has the Kevlar splinter-proof protection, to keep people inside the vehicle safe.

The Dozor-B is armed with a remote controlled 12.7mm machine-gun mount, camera, thermal imagery camera with laser range-finder and a NSBT-12.7 machine gun. “Dozor-B” can hit enemy troops and lightly armored vehicles, as well as successfully fire air targets.
