Rostec subsidiaries have developed an up-armoured BMP-3 with the Berezhok combat module; meanwhile, work continues on the BMP-3M Manul.

High Precision Weapons JSC, Kurganmashzavod and KBP (Instrument Design Bureau JSC) have revealed the latest version of the BMP-3 IFV equipped with the B05Ya01 Berezhok manned turret.

Word first emerged in 2016 that BMP-2 and BMP-3 IFVs in the Russian Ground Forces inventory would be equipped with Berezhok, but the Army-2021 event on 22-28 August marked the first public appearance of a BMP-3 equipped with this turret.

Berezhok includes a 2A42 30mm autocannon, a 30mm automatic grenade launcher AG-30M at the rear of the turret, a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and four ready-to-fire ATGMs.
