Modern armies have moved to become lighter and faster - two qualities that serve airborne elements perfectly. For Russian Airborne troopers, their inventory has recently been modernized with the adoption of the "Toros" 4x4 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC). The vehicle is manufactured under the Ural Automobile Engine Plant (UAMZ) brand label and its development involved INTRALL.

The vehicle stands on a 4x4 wheeled arrangement offering exceptional ground clearance (520mm) and large, oversized run-flat road wheels. With full independent suspension offered to each axle, the truck can handle offroad sorties with relative ease. The hull is designed to protect against small arms fire and artillery spray as well as STANAG 4569-level mine blasts. Windows are bullet-resistant against small arms fire as well. The driver sits at front-left and passengers number up to eight combat-ready troops. The front hull sports a powered winch, slim grille slats, and an anti-skid plate.

Weight reaches 6,800 kilograms. Dimensions include a running length of 5.1 meters with a width of 2.4 meters and a height to the hull roof line of 2.4 meters. The engine fit, housed in the bow of the frame, outputs 136 total horsepower to all four wheels and is mated to a five-speed transmission system. Maximum road speeds can reach 85 kmh with an operational range out to 1,000 kilometers.

August 2018 - Russia Airborne troops officially began accepting deliveries of the Toros 4x4 light armored vehicle - continuing the modernization of Russia ground forces under Putin's reign.
