A Dozor-B, a newly designed Ukrainian APC, went under when crossing a water obstacle, reports Voennyi Informator. The incident took place during a test drive of the latest armored vehicles soon to be adopted by the Ukrainian Army.
The armored personnel carrier failed to get across a water-filled pit and ended up being half-drowned in it. The occupants of the APC sustained no damage, while the APC itself was hauled away from the site of the incident.
Designed by Kharkov’s Malyshev design bureau, Dozor B APCs are currently being produced at a tank-manufacturing facility in Lvov. Three Dozor B APCs of different state of readiness are being tested by the Ukrainian military at the moment. It is expected that the Dozor B will be used as a full-drive armored personnel carrier.
