Photos: Ukrainian BTR-4 armoured personnel carriers during military exercise

The Battalion of the 92nd Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is training to act on the NATO’s standards as part of Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine (JMTG-U) training mission.

JMTG-U is the name for the training mission being conducted by U.S. Forces in support of Ukraine.

The U.S. will continue training and advising Ukrainian security forces until 2020, and JMTG-U will oversee defensive and security training for up to five battalions of Ministry of Defense forces per year.


The newest Ukraine-made BTR-4E armoured personnel carriers equipped with multiple integrated laser engagement system (MILES) also take part in a recent training exercise. The MILES is used by the military for training purposes. It uses lasers and blank cartridges to simulate actual battle.
