«Falcatus» armored car spotted during an operation in south Russia’s Dagestan

The new Russian «Falcatus» armored car spotted during an operation  in Dagestan.  The new armored futuristic-looking personnel carrier designed for the country’s special forces.

The  «Falcatus» can carry 10 people into combat in various seating positions. Armored vehicle  based on double-axle chassis  KAMAZ-4911.

The Federal Security Service (FSB) and Interior Ministry special units are suppressing thugs blocked in a suburb of Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan, by force, Russia’s National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) told TASS Wednesday.


“In response to legitimate demands of the law enforcement officers to lay down arms and surrender to the authorities, the gunmen opened fire from automatic weapons. The FSB and Interior Ministry special units were forced to start suppressing the thugs by force,” NAC said.

A spokesman for the NAC Operational Headquarters in Dagestan told TASS earlier that the regime of a counterterrorism operation has been introduced in the village of Leninkent in a suburb of Makhachkala.
