BDB
are proud to present the newest addition to the vehicle fleets of the glorious RUSK forces. Designed for long distance mapping, observation and general reconnaissance, it shares many common components with other BDB designs. Designed for simple maintenance in the field, with robust engineering of components to guarantee a long service life, the Cartographa provides much needed autonomous operation. Powered by an efficient fuel cell, with electric drive to all wheels, with extensive storage capacity at the front of the vehicle, during testing our brave troops declared it a superb vehicle.










With protection against mines and other explosive attacks, and with excellent cross-country performance, the Cartographa will allow a crew of up to five troops to effortlessly complete their missions. A variety of weapons can be mounted in front of the multi-part roof hatch, which provides some protection for the exposed gunner. For operations where there is a reduced risk, the window shields can be removed, allowing much improved visibility, but maintaining crew protection thanks to the armoured glass.

Press release issued on behalf of Comrade Burton, Director, Канюк конструкторское бюро, and authorisation is granted for distribution via all approved news channels under the control of the Media Relations Department of Armies Army.

BDB designed Normovich family of wheeled exploration and combat vehicles have been unveiled on the Armies Army Blog

I am proud to be able to publically reveal details of the latest set of vehicles I have designed and donated to the Armies Army cause. The BDB press release was as follows:

BDB are proud to announce completion of Нормович (translates as Normovich), the superior family of wheeled exploration and combat vehicles. Available in the four configurations;
4 x 4 Single hull
6 x 6 Single hull
8 x 8 Articulated Double hull
10 x 10 Articulated Double hull
Equipped with dual Fuel Cell power plants, powering advanced technology electric motors dedicated to each wheel, the Нормович has the power to go anywhere. With large, heavy tread tyres, the Нормович can cope with all terrains, and being fully amphibious, will not be stopped by a mere lake or river. Production examples will soon be rolling out every day in large quantities. Amongst the first to be issued to our glorious RUSK regiments will be the specially designed 10 x 10 articulated, dual barrelled 120mm Mortar version, which will provide much needed rapid fire, high explosive, support.
After extensive testing, the Нормович will also be deployed to the brave Internal Security units protecting our challenging frozen borders. Designed to allow long periods of operation, each vehicle contains a central corridor allowing even the tallest of our courageous soldiers to stand tall and proud whilst braving the worst Arctic storms. The ability to move around, and not be cramped by a restricted environment, has been proven to allow deployments far longer than in the inferior vehicles of our enemies. Equipped with weapon and other systems to meet each specific mission challenge, along with classified armour protection, the Нормович is clearly superior to any challenger in it’s class. The fully enclosed articulated corridor between the two parts of the larger vehicles, allows full use of extended hull space, whilst not limiting the Нормович’s excellent multi-terrain mobility. As always it is an honour to provide our brave soldiers with the best we can give during this Supreme Patriotic War.
