BMD-4 Airborne Infantry Fighting Vehicle

The BMD-4 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. The BMD-4 utilised the same chassis as the BMD-3 but with a new Bakhcha-U turret mounting a 100mm 2A70 low pressure rifled gun, a 30mm 2A72 autocannon and a 7.62mm PKT coaxial machine gun.
