New armored vehicle from Ukrainian manufacturer is on the way! KOZAK 2014 is a working tittle from PRACTIKA company. We have been testing last model of the prototype before serial production on the ground in Noviye Petrovtsy. Representatives from Armed Forces, National Guard and Border Control Service got together in this cold day for the test. said Arsen Avakov on Facebook.

This is totally Ukrainian engineering together with Italian partners IVECO. So far there are two versions of armored vehicle and more working on.

The cars passed the test drive. At the end of the test they were under fire from a distance of 50 meters with 5.45 mm, 7.62 mm caliber automatic guns, machine gun and SVD (Dragunov sniper rifle). The protection passed the test, armor and the glass!

The vehicle passed the test! We made list of comments and propositions for the last prototype together with generals and soldiers who were on the front line.

On Wednesday we will discus the order for the first test serial production and test in the army units under battle conditions and we will make a decision about bigger order in four different modifications and sizes with different set of weapon and protection.

This was a good day, we are happy with the test, although a little sorry for the shot prototype, but we are happy as it passed the test! After some work there will be new super armored vehicle for our warriors. We are getting stronger!

PS: Thanks to creative team for the work and to Sergey Pashinskiy for energy support of the project. And the authors of the prototype are ready to hear your suggestions regarding the new name of the armored vehicle. Creating together!
