The Derivatsiya-PVO anti-aircraft artillery system mounted on the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle platform is designed to fight cruise missiles, drones, aircraft and helicopters of tactical and army aviation; single MLRS projectiles as well as ground and surface light armored targets. The system comprises a fighting vehicle with a 57mm ballistic gun and an ammunition load, a trans-loader and a maintenance vehicle.
