The manufacturer positions the future armored car as a universal platform on which it will be possible to create cars for various purposes.

NVO Praktika is developing the Kozak-7 armored car based on the Ford F-550 chassis. Reported by Defense Express.

“Kozak-7”, as conceived by the developers, should become a universal platform for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The base of the Ford F-550 was changed by installing reinforced axles, springs, shock absorbers, cardan shafts, stabilizers and wheel hubs. This upgrade package is purchased from a NATO member company.

Thanks to the improved chassis, the carrying capacity has increased from 10 to 12 tons. The payload on the chassis is 9 tons, which, according to engineers, should allow the creation of armored vehicles for different purposes. For example, for the installation of a mortar, anti-tank complex or the creation of a medical, landing vehicle. Also, the armored car received an eight-cylinder engine with 330 horsepower manufactured by Ford with an automatic transmission for 10 gears.

Development of “Kozak-7” is carried out on the basis of “Kozak-5”, which the company manufactures for export. Praktika plans to offer the current development for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Currently, Kozak-2, Kozak-2M and other armored vehicles are supplied to various law enforcement agencies.

It is also noted that the enterprise independently produces armored capsules for the needs of the plant.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
