Kyiv Tank Factory developed and released the new combat module called ‘Viy’. The new rapid-fire cannon will be mounted on Ukraine-made scout vehicles ‘Dozor-B’. Workers of the factory told this to the press on Sunday, on the occasion of the Tankman’s Day in Ukraine.

Previously, ‘Dozor-B’ only had machineguns mounted on them; however, as the troops complained about the lack of firepower, the new gun was developed to increase combat effectiveness of Ukrainian armored vehicles.

The gun is yet to be tested.
