Indonesia has ordered 60 Russian made armoured infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3.
Russia is set to sell up to 60 infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3 to Indonesia in a deal worth more than $100 million, the Izvestia newspaper cited an unnamed military source as saying on Tuesday, January 31, 2012.
     
     

The deal will be finalized on February 10, the source said, adding that 20 BMP-3 vehicles will be delivered before the end of the year.

The BMP-3 is a Russian tracked amphibious infantry fighting vehicle, successor to the BMP-1 and BMP-2, which entered service with the Russian army in 1990 and made its first public appearance the same year.

The Russian army stopped purchasing the vehicles in 2010.

The state-run weapons exporter Rosoboronexport declined to comment.

The Kurganmashzavod arms plant said it would produce modified vehicles for Indonesia.
