Modern infantry fighting vehicles continue to enter the formations. As part of the state defense order, the manufacturers will transfer the BMP-3 batches to the units of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The BMP-3 is distinguished by its high maneuverability, firepower and good armor protection. The versatility of the weaponry allows it to fight against various targets, including air targets.

The standard armament of the BMP-3 is a 100-mm gun – a launcher for firing guided and unguided ammunition, a 30-mm automatic cannon, a 7.62-mm PKT machine gun and a smoke grenade launch system. The front location of the engine compartment was replaced by the aft one – according to the “tank” scheme. Thus, the view of the driver is improved, the habitability of the internal volume is improved, the weight is more favorably distributed along the length of the car.
