Every week, one new BTR-3DA left the factory to increase the defense capability of the Ukrainian armed forces. For 2017, Kyiv Armored Plant has produced more than 100 combat vehicles due to a new modern assembly and welding industry arrangement. This allowed the plant to increase the production, reduce costs and create the foundation for a new technological potential for the company.

The BTR-3DA is the latest generation of wheeled armoured combat vehicle from the BTR family. The vehicle was unveiled to the public during the Arms and Security defense exhibition which was held in Kiev, October 2017. It is an improved version of the Ukrainian-made BTR-3 8x8 armoured vehicle personnel carrier designed and manufactured in Ukraine

The BTR-3DA is fitted with a BM-3M "Shturm-M" weapon station which is armed with one ZTM-1 30mm automatic cannon, one 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and two launchers for the Barrier Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM).

The BTR-3DA has a crew of three including driver, commander and gunner and the rear part of the hull can accommodate 6 infantrymen. The hull and the turret of the BTR-3DA are of all-welded steel armour construction offering protection against firing of small arms and artillery shell splinters.
