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 armament system mounted in the rotating turret comprises the 100mm 2A70 gun coupled with one 30mm 2A72 automatic gun, and one coaxial 7.62mm machine gun. The 2A70 gun features autoloader and capability to launch the Bastion laser beam riding anti-tank missile. The BMP-3K is a derivative of the BMP-3 vehicle designed for command and control purposes within BMP-3 equipped units. It features a crew of only 6-man (driver, gunner, commander and three officers plus two auxiliary seats), workstations, and additional communications equipments.
