The Ministry of Defence Myanmar wants to buy more Ukrainian BTR-3U wheeled armored personnel carriers, according to  military-informant.com.

Myanmar expects to buy undisclosed number BTR-3U armored personnel carriers, which were very effective during the border crisis with China in early 2015.

The BTR-3U armored personnel carrier was jointly developed in 2000 by Ukrainian and UAE companies as a private venture. The BTR-3U is an improved variant of the Soviet BTR-80 armored personnel carrier, however it is a newly built vehicle, rather than upgrade of existing APC.

The BTR-3U is armed with Shkval armament module. It is fitted with a 30-mm dual-fed cannon, 7.62-mm coaxial machine gun, 30-mm automatic grenade launcher and Konkurs anti-tank guided missiles. Weapons on the Shkval module can be replaced, fitting it with different anti-tank missiles and so on.

 Armor of the BTR-3U provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. It is fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression systems.
