The reconnaissance-strike complex (RSC) SOKIL is meant for observation, detection, tracking and destruction of the armament, military hardware and manpower of the enemy under conditions of possible combat operations.
The RSC SOKIL is equipped with light weapons (lightweight weapon station), communications facilities, special equipment, as well as reconnaissance and strike unmanned aircraft systems.
The RSC SOKIL is used for provision of the ground units during patrolling, reconnaissance, defense, anti-terrorist operations and other military missions.
The RSC SOKIL performs military missions at any time of the day and night. The basic running gear of the complex is a specialized armored vehicle VARTA, which provides traffic on paved roads (highways), soil roads and off-roads, as well as stream crossing (fording depth up to 1.8 m).
The SOKIL is built on a 4×4 two-axle truck base with a specialized chassis with a “high-cross” carrying up to 8.15 tons. This chassis with сentral tire inflation system is proven and reliable even in the most challenging and difficult conditions.
The SOKIL boasts a 6-cylinder, V-type, turbocharged diesel engine dispelling either 270hp or 300hp (depending on the engine chosen) and can run on many types of fuel (including lower quality fuel in combat situations). The SOKIL has a maximum road speed of 120 km/hour and a maximum torque of 1128 N*m
The SOKIL employs an 8-Gear Manual Transmission to accommodate all terrain situations and to be completely versatile in battle.
Built with Swedish Armor from 560 Steel, the
SOKIL can withstand a direct hit from armor-piercing
incendiary 7.62mm ammo. The SOKIL engages
bulletproof glass of the same protection
level as the armor and it’s external installation
method enables quick replacement if damaged.
Ballistic plates surround the engine for additional
V-shaped hull of the SOKIL armoured crew
compartment gives protection to the passengers
able to withstand a detonation charge equivalent
to 6kg of TNT.

The SOKIL is equipped with a central tire inflation
system. This system provides:
• required air pressure in the tires of the vehicle
depending on road surface;
• automatic maintenance of specified air pressure
in the tires in case of damage;
• automatic wheel disconnection from the system
in case of significant damage when air
leakage exceeds the rated compressor
Rubber Run-flat tire will allow continued operation
even after a loss of some or all inflation pressure
for up to 50 km on off road. Made of three
parts, which allows quick mounting without
Independent air conditioning and heating system
individually designed to ensure a comfortable
climate in the cabin at a -40 to +50 °C. All
windows and mirrors are heated.
The ergonomic instrument panel has waterproof
and anti shock sensors and switches.
The vehicle has an electric shock protection
and water proof winch with towing capacity 10 t
and synthetic rope or steel cable 30 m.
In order to increase traction, a set of pulley blocks
can be installed.
