Zhytomyr Armored Plant State Enterprise, which is a part of Ukroboronprom State Concern, shipped the primary serial physique body for the BTR-4E floating armored personnel provider with improved amphibious traits to the Kharkov Machine-Constructing Design Bureau named after A.A. Morozov. The corporate is persistently and systematically working to carry out the order for the manufacture of a number of physique frames for these armored automobiles.

“We hope this sort of product to be ordered continuously. We assure its high quality and promptness of supply,” the director of Zhytomyr Armored Plant Hennady Hrashchenkov stated.
The BTR-4E is the export model of the BTR-4, an 8×8 armored automobile personnel provider (APC) designed by the Ukrainian Firm Kharkiv Morozov Machine-Constructing Design Bureau. The BTR-4 “Bucephalus” (Bronetransporter, Armoured Transporter) is an amphibious 8×8 wheeled armored personnel provider (APC) designed in Ukraine by the Kharkiv Morozov Machine-Constructing Design Bureau (SOE KMDB). The structure of the BTR-4 represents a change in comparison with the older BTR-60/70/80 designed within the Soviet Union. The automobile has a standard structure much like western designs just like the German TPz Fuchs
The troops enter and depart the automobile both by the rear doorways or the roof hatches, and the motive force and the commander are supplied with doorways positioned on the perimeters of the hull. The prototype is armed with the regionally designed New Armament Module which is armed with one 30mm computerized cannon, 7.62mm coaxial machine-gun, as much as 4 9P135M Konkurs or Baryer anti-tank missiles (two on either side of the turret), and one 30mm computerized grenade launcher (fitted instead of the AT missiles on one left-hand facet of the turret). The BTR-4 has a most velocity of 110 km/h and might cross water obstacles at a velocity of 10 km/h.
