Thus, by 2023 Remdiesel plans to reach annual revenue of 30 bln RUB and income of 1 bln RUB. Share of civil products shall be 50%, share of export - 15%. Therefore, 35% of products will be made for Russian security agencies. At the same time, experts forecast growth of the company’s orders from the Russian defense ministry in the heavy wheeled chassis segment.
"In the state arms procurement sector, there are some reasons to be hopeful. The military consider a refusal from the MZKT chassis, in this case a range of heavy-class special multiwheeled chassis (made by Remdiesel – editor’s remark), along with products of Bryansk Automobile Plant (BAP), will become a priority", Col. (Ret.) Viktor Murakhovsky, head editor at National Arsenal magazine told Mil.Press Today.
The expert reminded that Russia was currently deploying a repair/evacuation regiment in every military district and a repair/evacuation battalion in every combined-arms army. They use trailer tractors for evacuation of armored vehicles to collection points. Viktor Murakhovsky says the military may order hundreds of such trailers. As for him, in this sector Remdiesel is competed by BAP. The lighter vehicles made by Remdiesel, armored rovers Typhoon, are considered as a solution for mech infantry brigades. Besides, the expert says Russian National Guard is interested in them as well.
