The crew consists of three soldiers, the driver and two radio operators who are sit at the front of the vehicle. There is place at the rear of the crew compartment for four staff officers.
Propulsion
The BMP-1KSh is powered by a type UTD-20 6-cylinder in-line water-cooled diesel engine developing 300 hp at 2,000 rpm. The torsion bar suspension is the same as the standard BMP-1, which consists of each side of six rubber-tyred road wheels with the drive sprocket at the front, idler at the rear and three track-return rollers. The first and last road wheel stations have a hydraulic shock-absorber and the top of the track has a light sheet steel cover, which is normally removed when operating in snow.

The BMP-1KSH is equipped with radio set R-137, R-140M or R-145BM, each with four of five radios. In addition, the vehicle has also telephone equipment, telegraph communication system, ventilation, TNA-3 navigation system and diesel generator which has the capacity to power the communication equipment.
