The leading Russian manufacturer of wheeled military equipment "Military Industrial Company" (MIC) plans to create a civilian SUV on the basis of the promising light armored car "Strela" - an analogue of the ToyotaLandCruiser. This was stated by the general director of the military-industrial complex Alexander Krasovitsky in an interview with the RIA Novosti agency. According to him, in the future, the new SUV, which has already received the name "Russian LandCruiser", should become the main command vehicle in the Russian Armed Forces. In addition to supplies to the Russian army, the model may be in demand in the civilian market.

Currently, UAZ-469 vehicles manufactured by the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant are used as command vehicles of the RF Armed Forces. In turn, a few years ago, UAZ announced a new version of the flagship Patriot SUV, positioned as the Russian Prado, but it is currently frozen. At the same time, the company does not abandon the strategic task of developing a new platform for UAZ off-road vehicles, and now a new investment schedule and project implementation plan are being developed.

It should be noted that as part of a deep restyling, SUV was developed on a completely new frame with a programmable deformation zone, an independent spring suspension in front and a dependent spring suspension in the rear. At the same time, the all-wheel drive system with a rigidly connected front end with a downshift range of gears and an electronic locking of the rear differential should have been preserved.

The engine range of the new Patriot, as planned, will include two versions of 2.3-liter petrol turbo engines with a capacity of 150 and 170 hp, a 2.5-liter "atmospheric" with 145 hp and a 2.2-liter turbodiesel of Ford Transit. As a transmission there is a 6-speed manual gearbox BAIC and a 6-band "automatic" PunchPowerglide.
