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-63968 Typhoon-K, also known as Taifun-K, is a 6x6 armored truck system featuring two separate and armored cabs for the troops and crew. The vehicle's crew cab is specially protected and can accommodate up to three-man. The cargo compartment transports up to 16 troops and features rear ramp. The troops compartment can be detached from the chassis allowing for a different payload. The 21-ton Typhoon-K is powered by a Kamaz 740 turbocharged diesel engine developing 331-KW of power and allowing a top speed of 100 kilometer per hour and a maximum range of 1,200 kilometers.
