The S-11 is an infantry fighting vehicle, originally produced by Haruspex Internal Armaments, intended as a domestic replacement to older armored personnel carriers such as S-10 APC that were in main line of service with the Haru Legionary at the time of S-11's development. The S-11 project began in 1991 when the Haruspex Imperial Army issued a request for a new Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) to meet future combat requirements. The Ministry for Defense Development was in charge of its development, and HVRL and HIA were the prime contractors for the joint-production of this vehicle.

The S-11 is lighter compared with most modern IFVs, as it was designed using composite materials to save weight wherever possible. The S-11 used composition multi-layer armor with glass fiber, ceramic and aluminum alloy. The front arc provides protection against 30-mm armor-piercing rounds and all-round protection against 14.5-mm armor-piercing rounds. The vehicle is also fitted with automatic fire suppression and NBC protection systems. The S-11 can be also fitted with active protection system, similar to that used on the HIA S-94a Jelduno (Victory) Main Battle Tank.

The S-11 is designed to be an amphibious infantry fighting vehicle that can cross shallow rivers. The vehicle is developed to be more affordable than the competitor armored personnel carriers, but not necessarily sacrificing capability, to gain an edge in cost-effectiveness.

The engine compartment is located at the front right of the vehicle and is separated from the remainder of the vehicle by a bulkhead. The engine compartment is fitted with a fire extinguishing system that can be operated by the driver or from outside the vehicle. The air inlet, air outlet louvres and the exhaust pipe are located on the roof of the vehicle to allow amphibious operations.

Vehicle is powered by an HVRL-HV2 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 680 hp. This infantry fighting vehicle has a hydropneumatic suspension and advanced running gear. The S-11 IFV is fully amphibious with minimum of preparation with a help of an automatic flotation bags. Floatation bags are activated, before entering the water. On water this armored vehicle is propelled by its tracks.

The S-11 infantry fighting vehicle has a great degree of advanced high-tech systems used including battle management system, internal navigation, vehicular information systems and identification system which recognizes friend and foe vehicles.

The S-11 has six electrically operated smoke grenade launchers mounted across the front of the hull as countermeasures against electro-optical and infrared targeting. If the S-11 IFV variant features a turret, the smoke grenade launchers mount on the turret (three on each side).

The S-11 can provide infantry firepower support with it's HIA OWS-30 mm auto cannon. This cannon is combined with advanced fire control system for better fire accuracy. Such fire control systems are usually found on main battle tanks. It fires armor piercing, HE-FRAG, smoke and multi-purpose ammunition. There is also a 7.62-mm machine gun. Vehicle has a crew of three, while it can carry up to nine fully equipped troops. The S-11 also carries two indigenously developed ATGW launchers for it's Anti-tank role. It is atypically armed with HIA R7-SGFFM anti-tank missile systems.

Standard Defensive Systems:
1. Six (6) HIA APMS "Super Claymore": Two are positioned on either side with two in front. None are in the rear of the vehicle. Mounted on armored plates which prevent the mines from doing damage to the vehicle itself. Derived from the traditional claymore mine, this weapon is extremely effective. It is slightly larger than the original Claymore mine and has 1000 steel balls and is backed by two pounds (0.9 kg) of Semtex. The "Super Claymore" operates in a similar fashion to the original mine and creates a fan of projectiles for a 328 foot (100 meter) cone with a 60 degree arc of danger. Generally the Super Claymore is activated by the crew when it looks like the vehicle will be overrun.

    Maximum Effective Range: 820 feet (250 meters)
    Front 60-degree horizontal Cone of Mine: 164 foot (50 meter) range
    Sides of Mine: 66 foot (20 meter) range
    Rate of Fire: Each mine single use only.
    Payload: Six Mines.

2. Smoke/Tear Gas Dispenser (2): Mounted on either side of the tank and launches smoke/tear gas grenades. While other types of grenades can be used, they have been rarely carried. Recently, there has been consideration for the use of prismatic aerosol and decoy grenades to help protect the vehicle against lasers and other weaponry.

    Effect: Creates a cloud of smoke 40 ft (12 m) in diameter.
    Range: 1,200 feet (365 m)
    Payload: Carries 12 smoke grenades per launcher.

3 HIA GLM-01 Light Machine Gun. Standard defensive weapon for the S-11 on a pintle mounting before the cupola of a turret system and or non turret system. Further information can be found here. GLM-01 LMG.

4: HIA Standard Series turret. The standard series turret carries a single HIA OWS-30mm auto cannon and two anti-tank missiles, which is the standard loadout turret of the S-11. The OWS-30mm fires armor piercing, HE-FRAG, smoke and multi-purpose ammunition. a VCI-SFCR (surveillance and fire-control radar), an electro-optical targeting system (EOTS), panoramic periscope, forward looking infrared system (FLIR), laser rangefinder (LRF), thermal sight, a TV camera, and a digital fire-control system. The combined targeting system of EOTS, FLIR, and LRF has a targeting range of 7 km. The cannon has a cyclic rate of fire of 600 rpm and an effective range of 3,000 m.

The HIA OWS-30, is a gas-operated, belt-fed, fully automatic and recoiling cannon. The belt feed mechanism is recoil-operated.

    OWS-30
    Main weapon caliber (mm): 30
    Length (mm): 3524
    Barrel length (calibres): 75
    Width (mm): 218
    Weight (kg): 138
    Rate of fire (rds/min): 600
    Firing range (m): 3000
    Muzzle velocity (m/s): 1080
    Recoil force (kg): 700
    Recoil stroke (mm): 55

5: HIA Drunh-2C (Thorn) anti-aircraft series turret. The Drunh-2C system consists of twin 30mm guns, a VCI-SFCR (surveillance and fire-control radar), an electro-optical targeting system (EOTS), panoramic periscope, forward looking infrared system (FLIR), laser rangefinder (LRF), thermal sight, a TV camera, and a digital fire-control system. The combined targeting system of EOTS, FLIR, and LRF has a targeting range of 7 km. The VCI made radar can detect and track a 2 m2-RCS target from a range of 17 km. The cannons have a cyclic rate of fire of 600 rpm and an effective anti-aircraft range of 3,000 m. The Drunh-2C has an integrated surface-to-air missile system to increase its coverage to 7 km (4.3 mi). Two missile pods each containing two missiles are mounted, one on each side of the turret. The missiles used are that of the 231L Myhla (Lance)

    The VCI-SFCR radar of the Drunh-2C Series Turret is an X-band (8 to 12.5 GHz) surveillance and fire-control pulse-Doppler radar, specialized for use against low-flying aircraft. Its features include real-time early warning, multiple target detection, an integral L-band (1 to 2 GHz) Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) subsystem, pulse compression, frequency agility, and adaptive moving target indication as an anti-chaff measure. It supplies ballistic computation data to the digital fire-control system to direct the aim of the electro-optical targeting system, which then aligns the 30 mm guns with the target for accurate fire. (The radar can be installed on a separate vehicle (usually a 5-ton six-wheeled truck with a self-towed generator unit) to serve as an independent surveillance platform for other short range air defense systems.) The secondary FLIR system and laser rangefinder supplements the VCI radar system to provide additional targeting means in case the radar is rendered inoperative, or is turned off to retain the element of surprise against aircraft that are equipped with radar warning receivers.

    The 30mm cannon is virtually a scaled-up version of the 25mm OWS-25R and has much the same general operating principles. The HIA OWS-30, is a gas-operated, belt-fed, fully automatic and recoiling cannon. The belt feed mechanism is recoil-operated.
