Description: The Kamaz Typhoon is a new family of armored car and truck vehicle systems designed to meet the requirements of the Russian Army and foreign export customers. The design and development phase was carried out between 2010 and 2013 with the demonstration phase expected to complete in 2014. These vehicles feature modular architecture and V-shaped hulls to withstand the detonation of mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). These wheeled vehicles feature central tyre inflation system (CTIS), five surveillance cameras providing 360-degree around the vehicle, additional add-on armor kits and optionally air conditioning as well as other refinements. The armor protection is stated at level 5 withstanding impacts by ammunition of 7.62mm or up to 14.5mm in the most heavily armored versions.

The Kamaz-53949 also called Young Typhoon is a 4x4 high mobility armored tactical vehicle intended as a response to the IVECO 65E19WM (LMV) Lince. The vehicle is intended to transport a small squad with the armored cab protecting them from 7.62mm ammunition, mines and IEDs. The rear cab can be detached from the chassis allowing for a different payload.
