BTR-3 "GUARDIAN" Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC), 8x8 wheeled multipurpose vehicle designed by UAE

Posted by Arab Defense Industry on Thursday, July 8, 2010

ADCOM MILITARY INDUSTRIES (AMI), headquartered in Abu Dhabi, UAE, is an international defense research and development company providing high-technology innovative products and services to its UAE and international military, government and commercial customers. The company is at the forefront of the technology advances in battle management, surveillance, precision strike and information warfare.

AMI is involved in a variety of defense projects such as the "HUNTER" Fast Attack Vehicle (FAV), which is a highly mobile strike vehicle used in patrol, surveillance and attack operations.

Another primary project is the "GUARDIAN" Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) an 8x8 wheeled multipurpose vehicle.

The most significant of exports was to the Myanmar Army which acquired 1000 BTR-3Us, to be assembled in Myanmar. The BTR-3U is not an upgrade of the BTR-80 and is a new vehicle similar to the Soviet design.

Design and lay-out principles of the vehicle were determined by the ADCOM MANUFACTURING Company, acting as the whole project coordinator, while the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau was responsible for the development of the chassis and integration of all vehicle systems and weapons on the chassis (development of the designer documentation). The BTR-3U is also designated as the Guardian. Although somewhat similar in appearance to the Russian BTR-80, the BTR-3U is an all-new production vehicle rather than upgrade of the existing in-service vehicle.
