I am still working on the design and soon later I will make a prototype for testing and validation. After that, the cost of the vehicle can be calculated and the sale price can be confirmed as well. Considering the size of BRT80 larger than Stryker M1126, its final sale price should be similar to but little higher than Stryker's.

Yes, this time I will offer discount for first one buyer for the pre-order. The discount will be announced after the prototype is validated.
