  • New capabilities

The capabilities enhancement potential envisaged in the course of BMP-3 development, has been implemented in a new Bakhcha-U combat module. This allows firing new HEF projectiles up to 7000m in range, as well as makes provisions for employment of future rounds. The gas contamination of the manned compartment while firing the launcher-cannon is significantly reduced due to implementation of ejector discharging the gas outside the compartment.

  • Versatility

Versatile and powerful artillery support asset available directly with regular infantry units.

  • Firing guided projectiles

A crucial advantage of the cannon is the capability to launch guided missiles through the barrel with the crew staying inside the IFV. Semi-automatic gun with mechanized loading allows for intensive engagement of area targets.
