Miscellaneous Info:

The Typhoon program commenced in 2010 to develop a new family of Russian modular Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) armored vehicles.  As such, the vehicles would share commonality of parts/components and could be easily produced and fitted to perform a large number of duties and missions.  The first vehicles came into service in approximately 2014 and consist of a few different base sizes and classes.  They are built by subsidiary companies of JSC KAMAZ (K-4386, K-53949 & K-63968) and the GAZ Group (Ural-63095 and Ural-63099).

The KAMAZ-63968 Typhoon-K is one of the most numerous of the vehicles yet produced and is used primarily as an armored personnel carrier.  However, the modular design is flexible enough to also be used in other roles such as ambulance, command/control, engineer reconnaissance, escort/convoy protection, fire support, military policing, Nuclear/Biological/Chemical recon, and reconnaissance.  At the time of writing in late 2020, only the APC has been fielded, although there is some speculation that a Command/Control vehicle may be built.

As a side note, in 2013 another "variant" of this design was shown to the public: the KAMAZ-63969 APC. It was quite different in appearance from the production 63968 vehicle, most notably the front cab arrangement.  Also, based on some information available it was built with a non-modular rear hull option.  To date, there is no information this variant was ever developed beyond one prototype.
