After modernization, the BTR-82AM retained the main goals and objectives of the base vehicle. The armored personnel carrier is designed to transport personnel and provide fire support during combat. At the same time, the vehicle has a number of new equipment that facilitates operation and, to some extent, improves its fighting qualities.

At the same time, the vehicle received a combat module similar to that used on the BTR-80A. On the reinforced roof of the hull, a monitor-type turret with machine-gun and artillery armament is mounted. The main armament of the BTR-82AM is a 30 mm automatic cannon. Also on the tower is mounted a modernized PKT machine gun in a separate armored casing. The tower carries smoke grenade launchers as an additional weapon.

In addition, as part of the demonstration of weapons and military equipment, guests of the large-scale event will be able to visit exhibitions showing historical equipment and small arms, combat equipment and modern observation devices, aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles, modern models of military equipment and technical equipment in service with formations and military units of the Air Defense Forces stationed in the Primorsky Territory
