Initially, the KORMAR command planned to replace the Soviet BTR-50 with Ukrainian BTR-4. So far, the purchase was limited to a test lot of five units and, despite the fact that the Indonesian government allocated $ 95 million for the further purchase of the BTR-4, KORMAR continues to search for new equipment.
The BT-3F armored personnel carrier is a floating tracked armored vehicle. According to the developers, BT-3F was created in order to increase the mobility and security of the units of the marines and ground forces. On the roof of the armored personnel carrier can be installed remotely controlled combat module with a machine gun caliber 7,62, 12,7 or 14,5 mm, as well as 40-mm automatic grenade launcher. The machine can hold about 14 people. The VgTZ tractor company, better known as the Volgograd Tractor Plant, developed BT-3F on its own initiative to replace the outdated MT-LB armored personnel carriers, designed by the Kharkov Tractor Plant back in the 60s, the material says.
