more interesting, they are only projects on paper or in prototype stage and
therefore do not qualify for this list.

Otokar Arma Armored Personnel Carrier | Military-Today.com
http://www.military-today.com/apc/arma.htm The Arma armored personnel
carrier was developed as a private venture by Otokar to meet the Turkish
Army requirement for amphibious wheeled armored vehicle. Development
commenced in 2007 and first vehicles with 6x6 configuration were revealed
in 2010. The Turkish Army requirement is for 336 such armored vehicles. For
this requirement the Otokar Arma is competing against FNSS Pars and Patria
AMV. The Arma is also aimed at the possible export customers. Some sources
claim that Otokar already received a contract for the Arma from an
undisclosed foreign country.

vehicle version wheeled www The BTR-80 (Russian:
бронетранспортер, BTR stands for bronyetransportyor,
literally meaning "armoured transporter") is an 8x8 wheeled amphibious
armoured personnel carrier (APC) designed in the USSR. Adopted in 1986 and
replaced the previous versions, BTR-60 and BTR-70 in the Soviet Army.
The Soviets based the BTR-80 on the BTR-70 APC. It has a single 260-hp, V-8
turbocharged, water-cooled, diesel
engine, an improvement over the twin gasoline engines installed in the
BTR-60 and BTR-70 vehicles. The reconfigured rear portion of the hull
accommodates a new, single engine. The Soviets removed the roof chamfers of
the modified BTR-70, raised the rear, and squared off the rearward-sloping
engine compartment. Standard equipment include TNPO vision blocks, optical
devices TNP-B and TKN-3 for the driver and commander, an OU-3GA2M infra-red
search light, six 81 mm smoke grenade launchers 902V "Tucha", a radioset
(R-173 or R-163-50U), an intercom and hydrojets.
In 1984, the Soviets began production of a diesel-engined variant of the
BTR-70, which they called the BTR-80. The Soviets have retrofitted some
BTR-70s with several of the improvements incorporated into the BTR-80,
including the high-angle-of-fire turret. The twin doors are designed to
allow the infantry to disembark while the vehicle is in motion, and allow
the infantry inside to exit from one side if the other is receiving fire.
The 30mm Cannon variants are capable of engaging most threats effectively
besides modern tanks, where they can still cause significant damage to
optics, weapons, and important systems. The main gun is not stabilized
(neither in the BTR-80 nor the BTR-80A), so accurate fire on the move is
limited (only at low speeds), and the rotation mechanism is manually
operated. The gunner sits in a roof mounted chair located above the flat
floor behind the driver/commander and two passengers, and before the
passenger bench. The gunner's station is basic, but uncharacteristically
uncramped for a Soviet armored vehicle. The gunner is equipped with both a
day time optical sight and an infra red night sight.
