* That said, the Russians apparently still believe in the IFV concept, up to including ''both'' types of vehicles in all of the weight classes of their prospective lineup: [[TankGoodness the tank-based]] T-15 includes both the heavier armed[[note]]The current version is armed with the ubiquitous 30-mm autocannon, though in the future a 57-mm or a telescoping 45-mm upgrades are projected[[/note]] IFV version, and the lighter armed APC variant (their armor being pretty much the same). The lighter "Kurganets-25" platform mounts pretty much the same turrets, but the IFV version is also better armored as well, while the wheeled "Boomerang" platform is primarily an APC, but also features the more heavily armed version, with some designers even proposing fitting it with the [[GlassCannon 125-mm turret from a "Sprut" light tank]].

At a time were other APC only sported an .50 machinegun or equivalent it was armed with a 20 mm autocannon that could, under the right circumstances, even threaten (certain) tanks of the era.

-->A planned production of 300 was cut to 60 due to shortage of engines. Issue is limited to Armoured Reconnaissance and Special Anti-tank units. In both roles they have proved highly popular with users, exceptional speed and cross-country performance giving them a survival rate three times that of any other NATO combat vehicle. A major drawback of the type is the difficulty of recovery if battle damage results in total loss of power. Plans for a special transporter were shelved when production was curtailed.

** Less well known are the British FV103 Spartan (basically a CVRT Light Tank without the Turret and with space for a Section) and FV432 Bulldog. Both of which have been quietly taxiing squaddies around battlefields for nearly Fifty years now.
** The British will soon be adding the Ajax to their list, the turreted version of which will have the same 40mm cannon as the Warrior.
