The machine can be a 14.5-mm machine gun KPVT or 12.7-mm machine gun "Kord", 30-mm grenade launcher "Flame 2", as well as anti-tank missile system.
Note that is being developed by an upgraded version of the KAMAZ-43269 "The Shot" — "Shot-M". As a result of deep modernization of the new armored vehicle will be able to withstand major mine and ballistic threats. For example, mine protection, the specific values which have not been fixed, according to experts, should be at least equivalent to 6 kg of explosives and ballistic protection must be at least 6 a class.
Tests of "shots" to determine the level of mine protection is not carried out, since the requirements for mine protection in TTZ customer does not show. The level of protection given mine car "Shot-M" at this stage of development is being verified by computational methods using simulated effects of an explosion on a mathematical model. The car is positioned in the segment of armored vehicles to the total weight of 14 tons.
The main differences armored car "Shot-M" on KAMAZ-43269 "The Shot":
Car: Cummins Engine 300 hp Transmission: Manual 9S1310; serial drive axles 43118 and 4350; serial transfer box 65111, tires Kama-1260 425/85 R21; protection class 6 according to GOST 50963-96.
