Preliminary tests of the latest BT-3F amphibious armored personnel carrier have been completed. Now the regulatory and technical documentation is being drawn up, said the executive director of Kurganmashzavod, Petr Tyukov.
State tests will be carried out by the Russian Ministry of Defense. In addition, the delivery of new cars will be possible only after passing these checks, TASS writes.
“This will be enough to negotiate and conclude export contracts. But you need to understand that the international situation will also affect foreign supplies, ”Tyukov said.
This vehicle was built on the basis of the BMP-3 and should carry up to 14 infantrymen. The mass of the armored personnel carrier is more than 18 tons and its protection effectively saves from a heavy machine gun.
