The Tiger-M multipurpose vehicle with remote-controlled station Arbalet-DM was unveiled at the Armya-2016 forum. The vehicle and its systems also took part in the Victory Parade on Red Square on 9 May 2016. The vehicle entered service with the Russian armed forces in 2017.

The Tigr-M or GAZ-233114 is an improved version of the standard Tigr GAZ-2330 light tactical 4x4 vehicle. The vehicle is manufactured by the Russian Defense Company Arzamas Machinery-Plant, a subsidiary of the Military Industries Company. It incorporates many improvements aimed at improving its operating characteristics, reliability, ergonomics and protection.

The Tiger-M has a combat weight of 5,300 kg and offers a payload capacity of 1,500 kg. The vehicle is designed to carry troops and cargo, tow systems and military equipment. It can accommodate up to 10 soldiers including driver and commander.

The Arbalet-DM RCWS (Remotely Controlled Weapon Station) is capable of detecting and automatically tracking targets while moving and in a static position. The turret is equipped with a TV camera that can identify targets at a distance of up to 2.5 km, as well as a thermal imager with a detection range of up to 1.5 km. The station's sensor array also features a laser rangefinder.

The Arbalet-DM RCWS can be easily integrated into various types of wheeled or tracked combat vehicles. It features a low weight that does not exceed 250 kg. The turret has a -20° / +70° elevation angle and a 360° trajectory. The RCWS Arbalet is controlled via a remote panel mounted in the crew compartment of the vehicle.
