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 BRM-3K is a derivative of the proven BMP-3 intended to perform reconnaissance missions in any weather condition. Target acquisition, identification, and position measurement can be carried out by the BRM-3K armored vehicle as well. Radio equipment provides BRM-3K data link at a maximum range of 350 km. It retains BMP-3 mobility, maneuverability, and survivability. The BRM-3K armament comprises a 30mm 2A72 automatic gun and one coaxial 7.62mm machine gun. Provision is made for an anti-tank guided missile system.
