The State Enterprise Mykolaiv Armored Plant successfully completed the fulfillment of the contract and handed over to the military a batch of restored BTR-80 with improved tactical and technical characteristics.

The Mykolayiv Armoured Plant’s specialists overhauled the Soviet-era armored personnel carriers, restored all components and units, as well as installed the latest Ukrainian-made surveillance, navigation, and communication systems.

“Following improving the tactical and technical characteristics, armored personnel carriers have become more convenient to operate in a night-time, as they are equipped with the latest thermal sighting system. Visibility and target recognition has also been significantly improved.

And the new BTR-80 digital communication devices comply with NATO standards. The upgraded armored personnel carriers have already been hand over to our military “,

said the director of the Mykolayiv Armoured Plan, Yuri Kravchenko.
