Several variants of Rosomak armored personnel carrier (APC) were presented at MSPO 2016 in Kielce, Poland.
Technical reconnaissance version (WRT – Wóz Rozpoznania Technicznego):
The main task of this version is to provide medical and technical support, repair work, and conduct technical diagnosis of Rosomak vehicles.
The WRT is equipped with a crane, the HIAB, that’s capable of lifting 1,000 kg . The WRT can be equipped with a remote-controlled weapon station known as the ZSMU-127 KOBUZ armed with a UKM-2000C 7.62mm machine gun. At MSPO 2016, it was confirmed that full-rate production is planned to start in 2016 and will last until 2018. Overall, Poland will procure 33 Rosomak WRT vehicles.
Command reconnaissance vehicle (R-1) and universal reconnaissance vehicle (R-2) variants:
Both APCs are designed on a standard version, armed with a 30 mm gun.
The R-1 and R-2 versions are amphibious. These variants have a special section for two operators and additional equipment, including a 4-meter long telescopic mast with FLIR sensor. A TV, thermal cameras, laser range finder and laser target indicator can also be found on these variants.
The R variant can detect targets from a distance of up to 20 km. In the case of a moving column of several vehicles, the R-1 can detect it from a range of approximately 40 km thanks to its Aselsan ACAR Ground Surveillance Radar.
By the end of 2020 the Polish Army is expected to receive 16 R-1s and 34 R-2s, followed by special variants equipped with ZSSW-30 remote-controlled weapon station.
