BMD-3 Airborne Infantry Fighting Vehicle

The BMD-3 is a third generation amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicle. The design combines features of an APC with that of a light tank allowing infantry to operate from the relative safety of the BMD's protected interior increasing infantry mobility and firepower. It can be dropped by parachute into action although is far more cramped for the crew. The BMD-3 has a crew of 3 and can carry up to 5 soldiers.
