South Korea has completed the development of a command post vehicle to replace makeshift tent type posts for front-line infantry units, the arms procurement agency said Monday.

The new wheel type vehicle allows commanders to lead combats while moving around and is equipped with devices to defend against enemy’s chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) attacks, according to the Defense Acquisition Programme Administration.

Hyundai Rotem Co. had led the development since 2017, using mostly local parts.

“With the success of the development of a wheel-type command post vehicle, infantry units’ maneuverability and survivability will be greatly improved,” an agency official said.

The agency plans to sign a contract for its production in 2022.
