Ukraine has delivered a unit of Dozor-B armored vehicle to the U.S. military, said Mikhail Morozov, deputy head of state-owned Ukroboronprom.

“The Americans bought the Dozor armored vehicle from Ukrspetsexport for over $500,000. I hope they like the vehicle and give up their Hummers,” Morozov was quoted as saying by the Ukrainian media.

The versions of the Dozor-B include armoured personnel carrier (APC), armoured vehicle, NBC reconnaissance vehicle, command vehicle, ambulance, reconnaissance vehicle and general purpose vehicle.
