In June, contracts were concluded with a November deadline for both the supply of new BMP-3s and BMP-3s after repairs, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the holding’s press service. In six months of 2023, the company has assembled 95 percent of the volume of armored vehicles produced for all of 2022.

In parallel, in a few months, the plant mastered the overhaul of the BMP-2 with the modernization of the Berezhok combat module. The first batch of updated BMPs was sent to the troops in June, a month earlier than stipulated in the contract.
