Development of the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle commenced in the late 1970s, and first production versions were accepted in 1987. Series production has been relatively slow for financial reasons, and by 2017 720 were in service with Russian forces. The BMP-3 has been exported to Azerbaijan (100), Cyprus (43), Indonesia (54), Kuwait (around 200), South Korea (70), United Arab Emirates (around 650) and Venezuela (130). Morocco ordered 60 of these combat vehicles. The BMP-3 is still being produced.
The BMP-3 is armed with a 100 mm gun, capable of firing 9M117 Bastion laser-guided anti-armor missiles, as well as ordinary HE-FRAG projectiles. The BMP-3 is also armed with coaxial 30 mm cannon and 7.62 mm machine gun.
Two versions of this vehicle are provided in forms suitable for fdm and resin printing. The basic vehicle is provided with a separate turret, and the fdm version also has separate tracks to ease printing. The second model represents the vehicle fitted with ERA to both hull and turret. Again, the turret is separate, and the fdm version is provided with separate tracks.
