Ukrainian Defense Ministry issues RFP to develop new off-road vehicle.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a competition to develop a new off-road light utility vehicle for use by the country's Armed Forces, Defense Express has reported.

According to the report, the new vehicle should be developed to comply with NATO standards and will replace the aging fleet of UAZ-469 vehicles that are in service with the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The competition is open to domestic companies of all ownership types. The only formal restriction placed on bidders is that they need to have a "clearance for activities comprising access to information pertaining to state secrets."

Bids should be submitted by March 5.

"The prototypes must conform to requirements in terms of robustness, reliability, power output, fuel efficiency, load capacity, ease of maintenance and repair. The vehicle must ensure that tasks are accomplished in all terrains or climates. The utility vehicle that will be most acceptable in terms of physical and performance characteristics will be selected based on the results of official qualification trials," Minister of Defense Andrii Taran said while announcing the RFP.

According to a statement issued by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, a research and development project entitled "Development of an off-road light utility vehicle for the Ukrainian Armed Forces" has already been launched. The project has to be implemented "at the cost of the bidders" during the first half of 2021.
