VARTA – is an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC). It is ideal for transporting soldiers in combat situations and can also be equipped as a Command-Post Vehicle, or evacuation of troops.
The vehicle compartment is made from specialized 560 steel grade which protects crew from armored piercing incendiary ammo up to 7.62mm.
VARTA uses a V-shape hull structure to accommodate anti-mine seats, giving crew members protection to withstand detonation of charges up to 6kg of TNT. VARTA includes a ﬁghting module equipped with either the 7.62 mm or the 12.7 mm machine gun. The vehicle has 10 gun ports around the vehicle with the feasibility of accommodating a UBGL (Under-Barrel Grenade Launcher).
The VARTA 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 VARTA 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 VARTA has a maximum road speed of 120 km/hour and a maximum torque of 1128 N*m
Built with Swedish Armor from 560 Steel, the
VARTA can withstand a direct hit from armor-piercing
incendiary 7.62mm ammo. The VARTA 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 VARTA armoured crew
compartment gives protection to the passengers
able to withstand a detonation charge equivalent
to 6kg of TNT.

The VARTA 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.
