Ukrainian state manufacturer Ukroboronprom has sped up production of the BTR-4 armoured personnel carrier, which was developed in the country, it announced on 25 May.

Zhytomyr plant specialists have successfully mastered hull production for the BTR-4, and the next stage is production of the vehicles it said. The plant has developed technical documentation for the armoured vehicle and is planning state tests of the BTR-4.

It is also planning the delivery of the vehicles to the Ukrainian defence ministry, national guard and law enforcement agencies.

Roman Romanov, director generation of Ukroboronprom, said that the company can now produce more BTR-4s under state orders.

The domestically-developed BTR-4E light armoured vehicle was unveiled first in 2006, and the army operated close to 80 vehicles during military operations in Eastern Ukraine.

For 2016, Ukroboronprom is developing the framework for the 'Ukrainian shield' strategy that will provide a path for transitioning to high-tech manufacturing, supply modern armament types to the army and meeting NATO standards.
