BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicle

The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation intends to place a order with Kurganmashzavod for new infantry fighting vehicles.

It is envisaged that more than ten BMP-2s will be delivered in 2005. Besides, three BMP-3 will be purchased as an experiment. The vehicles of the kind are already in service with the Russian Army,as well as being purchased by a number of foreign customers who appreciated their capabilities. However, the BMP-3 procurement for the Russian Army has so far been restrained by the high cost of the vehicle (around $1,000,000).
