The ability to hit targets on the move with missiles was successfully demonstrated during competitive evaluations in the UAE in Optional autoloader for ATGM missiles is also available.
It also has a stronger armor on the turret, and two-axis stabilisation. The module can carry 80 rounds and fire 80 rounds per minute including air burst, high-explosive, fragmentation, armor-piercing and guided munitions with a maximum range of The engine is in the back of the vehicle to the right unlike most other IFVs, which have the engine located forward in the hull.
As a result, the driver is seated forward in the hull in the center together with two infantrymen one on each side of the driver. The BMP-3 engine is a diesel four-stroke, liquid-cooled design.
The transmission is a four-speed hydromechanical power unit, with power takeoff to its water jets. The suspension is independent, with a torsion bar and six hydraulic shock absorbers. Steering is by gear differential with hydrostatic drive. The water-jet propulsion unit is single-stage, axial, auger-type. The turret is also provided with a thick steel spaced armour shield over its frontal arc. It is specially constructed to act as armour, effective against shaped charge warheads as well as any auto-cannon shells that managed to go through the front armour.
The BMP-3 can create a smoke screen by injecting fuel into the exhaust manifolds. At least two distinct sets of explosive reactive armour kit are currently available, giving the BMP-3 protection from less advanced rocket propelled grenades. One of them is the Kaktus ERA kit, which has a unique design that creates minimal acoustic and kinetic backlash to the armour behind it upon detonation, thus ensuring that the occupants will not be harmed by shockwaves from the ERA block.
The ERA blocks will completely disintegrate after detonation. According to Kurganmashzavod, the BMP-3 may also be fitted with additional side armor tiles, which can resist. They give the BMP-3 added side protection from autocannon fire as well. The BMP-3 also has the ability to carry a Shtora-1 electro-optical jammer that disrupts semiautomatic command to line of sight SACLOS antitank guided missiles, laser rangefinders and target designators.
Shtora is a soft-kill, or passive-countermeasure system. Standard weight of the vehicle is If additional armour overlay metal sheet of armour and Kaktus ERA is installed, weight will reach to The body covered from the sides and the top.
In such kit, it is protected against Its additional auxiliary armour shields are effective against Explosive reactive armour is available as an option.
BMP-3K komandnyi — Tactical command variant, includes additional radio R, an intercom for seven users, an AB-R28 independent portable power unit, a navigation device TNA and the "Ainet" air burst round detonation system. The BMP-3K lacks the bow machine guns and has its whip antennas mounted on the rear hull.
Specially designed for operations at sea, with improved seaworthiness and buoyancy, capability to move afloat at sea state 3 and fire with the required accuracy at sea state 2. Compared to the basic model, the vehicle design features changes increasing floatability and vehicle stability: the self-entrenching equipment is omitted, a lightweight anti-surge vane and an air intake tube are introduced; the BMP-3F turret is also protected by anti-surge vanes.
The BMP-3F design allows the vehicle to come ashore under rough sea conditions and to tow the same-type vehicle. This version can endure continuous amphibious operation for seven hours with the running engine. It can accommodate a crew commander, driver, gunner, and 14 troops, and can use optional ERA armor.
It is reported that its trials were finished in October The missiles are re-loaded automatically from an internal magazine with 15 rounds missiles are stored and transported in sealed canisters and can also accept munitions manually loaded from outside the vehicle. The manufacturer claims that three 9P tank destroyers are able to engage 14 attacking tanks and destroy at least sixty percent of the attacking force.
The dual guidance system ensures protection against electronic countermeasures and operation in all climatic conditions, day or night. NBC protection is provided for the crew gunner and driver of each 9P in addition to full armour protection equivalent to the standard BMP-3 chassis and entrenching equipment. Some sources call it the 9P The Kornet is similar in function to the Khrizantema missile system. The 9PM-1 carries two 9M missiles on launch rails, which are extended from a stowed position during transit.
Missiles are re-loaded automatically by the tank destroyer from an internal magazine with 16 rounds missiles are stored and transported in sealed canisters. The guidance system of the 9PM-1 allows two missiles to be fired at once, the missiles operating on different guidance laser channels. The first Kornet-T missile carriers were delivered in to replace the Shturm-S , and the first batch of 20 vehicles entered service in The Kornet-T is used by motorized units. This was only a prototype, further development led to the 2S31 Vena.
UR ustanovka razminirovaniya — Mine clearing system. It has the same chassis as the BMP-3 but a bigger steel hull with two launch ramps in the rear. The ramps are used to fire rockets towing hose-type mine-clearing line charges to clear mine fields.
Hermes or TKB — Air-defence vehicle with high-velocity missiles and radar system. It entered production in and service in The optical and electronic target acquisition system can spot an aircraft at 6.
Laser-guided , air burst and specialized anti-drone munitions for ZAK are in development. It is equipped with the anti-mine TMT-C trawl, and a remote weapon station turret with a

It is fed from a round magazine located around the turret ring. The gun can be reloaded by hand if necessary. Some units removed the autoloader altogether when new vehicles were delivered, but the mechanized ammunition conveyor magazine was kept. High-explosive ammunition, introduced in , can only be loaded manually, from a conveyor. In theory, a fifth missile can be carried on the launcher.
