KMDB awarded MoD contract for 75 BTR-4 APC vehicles

Kharkiv Morozov Design Bureau (KMDB) will act as Prime Contractor, while Kyiv Armored Vehicles Factory and Zhytomyr Armored Vehicles Factory will do subcontracted works in building and supplying 75 APC vehicles.

Yevhen Anfalov, head of the Armored Equipment Division at Ukroboronprom, Ukraine’s state-owned defense industries conglomerate, has confirmed in a Security Talks interview that the country's Defense Ministry had awarded KMDB a contract to build and supply 75 APC vehicles.

“KMDB will certainly be unable to do this amount of work all by itself. And so we plan that armored vehicle factories in Kyiv and Zhytomyr will join into this contract to do welding on hulls and weapon turrets. Lozova Forging and Mechanical Plant will also be subcontracted,” Mr Anfalov has said, the Defense Express reports.

In December 2020, Ukroboronprom announced it had been awarded a MoD contract to supply a batch of 75 BTR-4E APCs, comprising 15 baseline APC vehicles (including one commander’s vehicle and one armored repair vehicle) for use by ground military units, and 60 Marine personnel carriers.
