The field tests of the vehicle have been completed, and the vehicle will be subject to firing tests with the weapons on it soon after the expo.

The USA started such requirements about eight years ago. It aimed to create light vehicles with low protection levels, which provides fast and silent movement suitable for use in special forces' operations. The vehicles can be transported by air platforms, in the inner station or under the platform. This search has evolved into amphibious operations from the sea for infiltration operations with the change of conflict areas.
