Description: The Kurganets-25 (Object 695) is a family of medium armored vehicles (MAV) intended to transport an infantry squad protected under armor to the frontline of the battlefield. It features a high degree of commonality with the T-14 main battle tank as well as modular armor that can be upgraded to specific threats. The Kurganets is fully amphibious propelled by two water-jets at the rear of the hull providing a swimming speed of 10 kilometers per hour. Besides, the vehicle is provided with a sensor package including thermal imager, eye-safe laser rangefinder, GPS/INS navigation system and computer-based automatic fire control system with autonomous target selection. The Kurganets-25 platform may evolve into several models replacing the BMP-2, BMP-3, MT-LB and other types of tracked armored vehicles within the Russian Army. The Kurganets platform may serve as the chassis for the development for the replacement of the Tunguska, Tor-M and Strela-10 air defense systems as well as long range anti-tank missile carrier among other applications. The Kurganets-25 was first spotted during the rehearsal of the Victory Day parade in Alabino outside Moscow on March 23, 2015.

The Kurganets-25 Armored Recovery Vehicle (ARV) is intended to recover and repair Kurganets and Boomerang medium-weight armored vehicles damaged in the battlefield. The vehicle is fitted with an improved crane and winch as well as a 12.7mm machine gun for self-defense purposes. To avoid enemy fire this new ARV is able to connect tow ropes to an incapacitated military vehicle remotely with the crew protected under armor. SKBM is responsible for the development of this new variant of the Kurganets vehicle family. The Russian Army was testing the Kurganets-based ARV in September 2016.
