The National Guard of Ukraine received a batch of armored personnel carriers BTR-4E

The National Guard of Ukraine received eight armored personnel carriers BTR-4E, supplied by the Kharkiv Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering. Morozov (KMDB). According to the Ukrainian Military Pages, the equipment was delivered with a delay of more than two years.


The contract for ten BTR-4Es for the National Guard of Ukraine was signed in October 2017 with the delivery of all armored personnel carriers by August 2018, however, only two armored personnel carriers were delivered by that date. The terminated contract began to be fulfilled only in August 2020, after the delivery of 45 BTR-4E units to the Ukrainian Armed Forces as part of an overdue contract in 2016, the execution period of which was extended until August 31, 2020 after Zelensky's intervention.

Meanwhile, it became known that the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has signed a new contract with the KMDB for the supply of another 77 armored personnel carriers BTR-4E and vehicles based on it. The new agreement provides for the delivery of 75 BTR-4E, one commander's BTR-4K and one armored recovery vehicle BREM-4RM during the year.

Under the contract, 15 BTR-4Es were ordered in a linear version and 60 in a "marine" version with additional floats. Such an armored personnel carrier was recently tested by landing in the water from the landing boat of the Ukrainian Navy "Svatovo". Presumably, all 60 "naval" BTR-4Es will go into service with the Ukrainian marines.

The BTR-4E was developed by the State Enterprise "Kharkov Machine-Building Design Bureau". Development began in 2002, the prototype of the BTR-4 was first demonstrated in 2006. Under the designation BTR-4E in July 2012, the vehicle was adopted by the Ukrainian army. In 2016, the armored vehicle was tested on the water. It is designed to transport soldiers of mechanized units and fire support in battle.

    Yes ... a. With such a successful delivery of the BTR-4E, I think that the order will be completed exactly by the end of the 21st century. laughing

      The deliveries are nevertheless going, the Ukrainian Armed Forces continues to grow. The number of new vehicles grows with each batch. The large door in the stern of the BTR-4e is important not only for the convenience of dismounting, but also for the emergency leaving of the wrecked car; it is very difficult to do this in Soviet degenerative structures.

        this is the "degenerate Soviet design" - only the rear doors were added
        the windows in the front especially deliver - they ask for an RPG grenade

          As if the rest of the RPG armor will withstand, which by the way applies to the BTR 60-82

          They claim 7,62mm protection.
          So glass is not the biggest drawback.

          Ukkry were going to remake these cars as in the photo. But it looks like they were limited to floats. laughing

        First, these armored personnel carriers entered the National Guard, and not the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and this is a slightly different organization

        If they can open it

        it is very difficult to do in Soviet degenerate constructions.

        So this armored personnel carrier is the same from Soviet times, they just took out an old project and decided to implement it into a series

          It looks like something. The fashion was on the Zhiguli, they hung mud flaps, a ball under the rear window, later a singal with a melody. Technology is evolving. Success laughing

          And what is the problem, it will be necessary to open it. It is easier to order seabass from the stern than to jump sideways. The APU is also receiving BTR-4.

        So this is where the conversation goes that a batch of 45 cars has been produced for 4 years

        For 29 years, you can change the generation of the armored personnel carrier to a new one, and then everyone complains about the Soviet degenerative design!
        Do not make me laugh !

        The large door in the stern of the BTR-4e is important for emergency leaving the wrecked car, yes - this is the most important thing! I wonder how many such leaveings will be? I think that they will not have enough money to manufacture and repair these armored personnel carriers. until new loans are acquired wink

    The current economic state of Ukraine is a Russian copy of 1998. All the years, their budget was made up under IMF loans. This year, the IMF completely denied them a loan. The year is coming to an end, and the budget for 2021. cannot accept. At the same time, the United States gives them 2021 million dl for 515. , solely for the purchase of their weapons .. And this is twice as much as in previous years. So, Ukraine in 2021 will have a bare bottom, but with American weapons.

    The Armenians also made fun of when the enemy armed himself, until they were cooled.

      soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaak))))) So it even became interesting - what are your suggestions? If we are talking about updating equipment in the Armed Forces, then in the Russian Federation it goes to a much larger volume? or do you propose to work ahead of the curve and start a war? what do you suggest???? otherwise we make thoughtful conclusions with a clever look, but we don’t offer any real steps ... you’re a minister at least))))
