The Didgori (Georgian: დიდგორი) is a Georgian-made armoured personnel carrier family developed by the "Delta" research center of the Ministry of Defence of Georgia and exists in two baseline variants.


Technical characteristics

The machine is assembled on the basis of units of the American pickup truck Ford F-Series. Equipped with thermal imaging cameras front and rear view of FLIR Systems.Information from the cameras is displayed on the three displays: one for the driver, one for the commander and one for the Marines,established with a system of night vision and also with a special navigation system GPS


The armour withstands impacts of 7.62x54mm AP rounds and 6-8 kg mine blasts at direct contact and from underneath without heavy damage. Further details are unknown, since the composition of the material is classified. The two baseline models are armed with a 7.62x52mm M134 Minigun and the 12.7x108mm NSV machine gun, but can be armed with a wide range of armaments, including ATGMs. The monocoque steel v-hull provides protection against small arms fire, artillery shell shrapnel, anti-personnel/tank mines and IEDs. Front wheel arches are designed to be blown away to free blast pockets.
