Typhoon-K to enter foreign markets
Rosoboronexport and Remdiesel embraced the joint program
to promote the Typhoon-K truck (KAMAZ-53949) on foreign markets. The document
was signed by Anatoly Isaikin, Rosoboronexport's CEO, and Faiz Khafizov,
The program's main goal is to promote Typhoon-K trucks on foreign markets and
receive proposals from foreign customers for supply of the truck, maintain and
increase the scientific and engineering capabilities of Remdiesel interests in
order to create products that are competitive in the global market.
"When we were formulating the program, we based ourselves on the fact that
Rosoboronexport has the unique experience of being a special exporter of defense
and dual-use end products, and Remdiesel's highly-qualified personnel, modern
equipment and rigging will allow it to represent the products of one of the most
famous car brands in Russia — KAMAZ — on foreign market," said Anatoly Isaikin.
"The Typhoon-K truck is planned to be promoted in North Africa, the Middle East,
Central and Southeast Asia, Latin America and, of course, the CIS."
"Remdiesel produces multi-purpose vehicles, takes part in implementing the state
defense order, as well as specific product types to foreign markets," said Faiz
Khafizov. "I believe that our cooperation with Rosoboronexport will be a success
for both companies."
The program is planned for 2017-2018. The implementation process was started as
soon as it was approved. Rosoboronexport's marketing plans, as well as
international exhibitions and salons will be supplemented by relevant themes and
activities, including the presentation of a showcase of the 4x4 wheel Typhoon-K
truck, which must be manufactured by Remdiesel before the end of 2016 in
accordance with the export version we've developed for the foreign market.
The Typhoon-K (ÊÀÌÀÇ-53949, 4õ4) truck is designed to meet the challenges of
comprehensive support of combined arms and special units including peacekeeping
forces under varying conditions. It can be used for transporting personnel and
military cargoes, as well as the base chassis for the installation of various
technical systems and weapons.
The truck has high combat and operational performance (mobility, protection,
combat capacity, design and ergonomics), high operating efficiency levels,
speed, and maneuverability under varying and in off-road conditions.
Rosoboronexport is the sole Russian state agency responsible for export of the
full range of defense and dual-use end products, technologies and services. It
is part of the Rostec Corporation. Rosoboronexport was formed on November 4,
2000 and is a leader in the world arms market. The company accounts for more
than 85% of Russia's exports of arms and military equipment. Rosoboronexport
cooperates with more than 700 enterprises and organizations of Russia’s defense
industrial complex. The geography of Russia’s military technical cooperation
covers more than 70 countries.
Remdiesel was founded in 1978 at KAMAZ's engines plant as a production
department for truck engine repair. Construction of Remdiesel's own production
facilities for repairing engines was completed in 1985. Remdiesel is no longer
part of KAMAZ, but rather an independent company engaged in the production and
repair of wheel and track-type vehicles.
Since 2009, Remdiesel has participated in a Russian Ministry of Defense program
to repair and maintain military equipment for the life of the equipment. As a
state-of-the-art company, Remdiesel overhauls engines, components and power
units, motor vehicles of the Russian Ministry of Defense's fleet, while also
repairing and manufacturing special vehicles (armored vehicles).
