Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau is preparing to deliver to Iraq the second batch of BTR-4 vehicles

Kharkiv, Ukraine -- The Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau is preparing to hand over to its customer – the Ministry of Defence of Iraq – the second batch of BTR-4 8x8 wheeled combat vehicles.

The Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau together with the State Enterprise Malyshev Plant and other sub-contractors, which are enterprises of the Ukroboronprom Concern, are stably working to fulfill the international contract. The second batch, which is ready to be delivered, consists of 62 vehicles, including frontline vehicles fitted with 30 mm armed Parus overhead weapon station, specialist vehicles (armoured ambulances and armoured repair and recovery vehicles), as well as training simulators and technical maintenance vehicles.

At present the representatives of the customer are expected to come in order to accept the vehicles so that the latter could be delivered to Iraq.

The vehicle production intensity achieved by the enterprises of the Ukroboronprom Concern within the framework of Iraqi Contract is on a par with that of the world’s leading manufacturers.

Late in 2009 Ukraine and Iraq signed an USD457.5 million contract for supply of 420 BTR-4 combat vehicles. The main contractor is the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau, with the Malyshev Plant being the main subcontractor (both enterprises are located in Kharkiv).

The BTR-4 was developed by the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau. The first batch of BTR-4s intended for Iraq, consisting of 26 vehicles, was manufactured and delivered to the customer on 20 April 2011.
