After signing a contract to supply 96 armored personnel carriers, Thailand for a long time could not get the ordered equipment. The Ukrainian side has explained the delay by the fact that Germany refused to supply parts to the Ukraine for military use, used in the BTR-3E1. For this reason, the assembly for the APC in Thailand has not been completed.Transfer the first batch of 12 armored vehicles took place in late September 2010, another batch of 12 vehicles were sent to Thailand in April 2011.

Thailand over the past year significantly increased its purchases of Ukrainian military equipment. The Ministry of Defense says it is cheap Ukrainian art. In March 2011 the command of the Army of Thailand has decided to purchase 200 (according to other sources than a hundred) of main battle tanks T-84U "stronghold" of Ukrainian origin. The sum of the potential deal is estimated at seven billion baht (231.1 million dollars). New tanks will replace the antiquated American-made M41A3.
