Ukroboronprom’s Kyiv Armored Plant has transferred a new batch of BTR-3DA to the National Guard of Ukraine following successful completion of acceptance tests.

The operational testing, carried out at the proving grounds in Kyiv region, saw all systems of each fighting vehicle evaluated.

The BTR-3DA was put through its paces including travelling cross-country, overcoming trenches, tracking bridges and special obstacles, and carrying out target engagement using the vehicle's standard weapon.

BTR-3DA is a lightweight armoured vehicle equipped with combat module Sturm-M with 30mm ZTM-1, 7.62mm machine gun and automatic grenade launcher.

In 2016 the Kyiv Armored Plant manufactured more than 50 BTR-3 vehicles for the Ukrainian military. A further 140 units have been ordered.
