Meng Model 1:35 - Russian GAZ Tiger-M SPN SPV - Plastic model kit #VS-008

The GAZ Tigr ("Тигр", or "Tigr" is Russian for Tiger) is a modern Russian infantry mobility vehicle (IMV) produced by the Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ) in Nizhny Novgorod. Production started in 2006 and in the same year the vehicle was introduced into service with the Russian Army.

The main functions of the Tigr are to transport troops and equipment both on and off-road. Designed to operate in various terrains and extreme weather conditions, the Tigr performs well in mountain, arctic and desert environments. Minimum operating temperature is -50°C. The vehicle construction consists of a chassis frame, a front engine compartment, a middle crew compartment and a rear cargo area that can store up to 500 kg. The PKP Pecheneg machine gun is installed as its main armament. 

The Tigr-M, a more advanced Tigr version, was issued in 2010. It features a more powerful diesel engine from the Yaroslavl Motor Plant, additional armour hood for the armament and the NBC protection system (a system that could neutralize nuclear, biological and chemical threats). Three years later the new model was officially adopted into service. In 2017 the Tigr-M was upgraded with a remotely controlled weapon module "Arbalet-DM" which includes the Pecheneg machine gun and the Kord machine gun.

Apart from the Russian Army, Tigr vehicles are deployed by the armed forces of other countries including Syria, Armenia, Kazakhstan and others.
