Indonesia has become the first export customer for the Russian BMP-3F Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC), following the conclusion of a contract between JSC Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) and the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Indonesia. The amphibious BMP-3F APC will be used by the Indonesian Marine Corps.

‘Indonesia is one of Rostec’s key partners in South-East Asia. The country is fulfilling both the projects in the area of military and technical cooperation and in the field of civilian products and transfer of technologies together with the enterprises of the state corporation… and we see a huge potential for the development of cooperation. Rostec is not just offering the entire range of armaments and civilian products of the state corporation, it is ready to build industrial partnerships of the highest profile,” said Sergey Chemezov, ROSTEC’s head.

The BT-3F is based on the BMP-3F and in addition to transport of troops it can also pro- vide fire support for ground troops during combat operations. The IFV is capable of transporting 17 people in air-conditioned cabin and is equipped with energy-absorbing folding chairs and seats equipped with five-point seat belts. The BT-3F is fitted with a two-plane stabilized remote-con- trolled 12.7 mm machine gun and also features a tele-thermal imaging sight with a laser rangefinder.
