"Work is nearing completion to enhance the BMP-2 IFV’s firepower and controllability by equipping it with the Berezhok combat module. The promising B-11 infantry fighting vehicle that is based on the Kurganets-25 chassis and features improved characteristics is currently undergoing trials," Salyukov said.

According to the commander, BMP-3 and upgraded BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles are being purchased to arm motor rifle units and an advanced armored personnel carrier based on the Bumerang chassis has been developed.

"In addition to the upgraded BTR-82AM armored personnel carrier that has proved its effectiveness, we are developing the advanced K-17 armored personnel carrier based on the Bumerang chassis, which will be superior to the best foreign-made analogs and incorporate more innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies," Salyukov said.

The Berezhok combat module has been developed on the basis of the serial-produced turret of the BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicle by the Instrument-Making Design Bureau on its own initiative.

The Berezhok combat module is armed with the 30 mm 2A42 main gun used on the BMP-2 IFV, a PKT 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun. four 9M133 Kornet-E anti-tank guided missiles and one AGS-30 30 mm automatic grenade launcher. The Berezhok upgrade also includes a new fire-control system and optics.

The BMP-2 IFV with the Berezhok combat module was unveiled at the MVSV 2006 International Army Weapons Exhibition in Moscow.
