Ukraine’s new Otaman 6×6 infantry fighting vehicle has completed one of the initial trial stages in off-road tests. The amphibious 23-tonne vehicle can run at a max speed of 110 km/h, with a max cruising range of 800 km, Defense Express reports.

Otaman 6×6 boasts of the enhanced armor, NATO-standard mine protection system, a large reserve of load capacity (to install additional composite armor and heavy equipment, such as a combat module), modularity, maximum mobility, and a high degree of digitization.

The new vehicle provides high-level anti-mine (STANAG 4569) and ballistic protection (STANAG lvl 2 to STANAG lvl 4 with new armor modules) due to its monocoque steel hull. The hull is also fully protected from biological and chemical threats.  The 453mm ground clearance protects the crew from mines.
