Description: The BMP-3 is a tracked, NBC-protected, Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) designed to transport infantry troops protected under armor and to engage on the move enemy troops, armored vehicles, low-flying helicopters, materiel and fortifications. The BMP-3 is the last member of Soviet BMP family of armored vehicles. The BMP-3 features enhanced cross country mobility and a water jet propulsion system (with two water jets) for amphibious operations. Its lightweight hull design enables BMP-3 to be airlifted easily by C-130 Hercules- or Antonov An-12-sized military tactical transport aircraft.

The BMP-3 powerplant is located in the rear compartment, gunner and commander are located in the turret, the driver is in the front compartment with 2 infantry troops and the remaining infantry troops are accommodated in the rear compartment separated from the engine compartment by a bulkhead. Doors and hatches are located to allow quick mounting and dismounting the vehicle. Its hull is made of armored aluminum plates with spaced steel-aluminum in the frontal sector.

The BMP-3 Khrizantema is an anti-tank platform combining the Khrizantema anti-tank missile system and the BMP-3 multi-purpose chassis. It is powered by an UTD-29 500-hp diesel engine allowing a top speed of 70 kilometers per hour (kph) on road and 10 kph on water using waterjets. The weapon system is deployed through a remotely controlled mast with two missiles that can be reloaded automatically under armor protection. The vehicle only requires a crew of two-person and carries 13 missiles internally in addition to the two ready-to-fire missiles. The Khrizantema is a supersonic missile capable of piercing up to 1,000 mm of hardened armor at ranges of up to 6,000 meters. The first BMP-3 vehicle of this kind was first seen at the Red Square parade in Moscow April 2014.
