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 BT-3F is an amphibious armored personnel carrier developed on the basis of the highly maneuverable BMP-3 medium armored tracked chassis. Russia unveiled the existence of the BT-3F prototype in May 2018 and the vehicle was demonstrated in August 2018. The BT-3F is equipped with a roof-mounted remotely controlled machine gun to provide fire support for dismounted troops as well as a stretched troop's compartment. The new BT-3F vehicle is intended to support the future requirements of the Russian Marines.
