What is with all the Georgian flag decals and LAZIKA logos all over the thing? PR stunt gone crazy from the looks of it. Hopefully in production it reverts to a true IFV and not a billboard.
If it is intended to develope a series of IFVs for different needs, than it's okay on the other hand. But in first line, the Lazika is just good enough to handle hostile Infantry and soft vehicles or armoured cars.
Why if you can actualy afford aquiring better weapons, for instance from Israelis. I am pretty sure it won't be a problem for the Israelis to sell some higher calibre firing systems, after all there is no export ban from their side and US should have also lifted their ban on us allready.

What vest are they using here? Pic is from 2008
Anyhow, it seems Georgia IS constructing UAV's now on the basis of foreign technological experience as it more and more comes to light, what some of the quiet Russo-Israeli talks resulted into, as far as you want to trust the cables.
BTW, is Delta actually also working on these, or is this just some fun job of bored soldiers .... ?
This is heck of a good idea actually. Why is nobody thinking about it lol ?
Equiping our Humvees with RCWP can save the lifes of soldiers + the dushka is a fine replacement for the weaker PK.

Georgian land forces Cpl. Gia Khutsishvili, with the 23rd Infantry Battalion, provides security during a tactical halt while conducting a close air support training mission at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC) in Hohenfels, Germany, Feb. 8, 2012. The JMRC, working with U.S. Marine Corps Forces Europe as part of the Georgia Deployment Program-International Security Assistance Force, conducted mission rehearsal exercises for Georgian infantry battalions to assist them in preparing to deploy for operations in Afghanistan.
Did actualy anyone else notice, that on the photos, the Lazika has seats for 9 passengers and not 7 .... ?
