     Ukraine won the bids of the Indonesian Defense Ministry for the wheeled armored vehicles. The signing of purchase contracts for the first batch of five BTR-4s is expected in the first quarter of this year. In August 2013, an Indonesian military delegation went to Ukraine to appreciate the capabilities of the BTR-4 on testing grounds near Kharkov.

     Indonesia’s needs for wheeled armored personnel carriers are a total of 55 units. The armored vehicles are for the Marines, to replace the aging Indonesian BTR-50. Indonesia already has the Russian BMP-3F, a special version of the BMP-3, optimized for landing missions; the final series of 37 armored vehicles were officially admitted into service during a ceremonial parade on January 27th.

     The BTR -4 is designed to carry an eight man combat group, in addition to the three crew members. It is armed with a 30 mm automatic cannon, stabilized in elevation and azimuth. Its maximum speed is 110 km/h, with a combat ready weight of 18 t.
