Russia`s BTR-82A armoured personnel carrier developed by the Military Industrial Company (Russian acronym: VPK, Voyenno-Promishlennaya Kompaniya) will receive a remote controlled weapon station (RCWS) armed with the 57 mm naval gun, according to a source in the Russian defense industry.

"The installation of the 57 mm naval gun will significantly increase the firepower of the vehicle. It has a firing rate of about 120 rounds per minute. The aforementioned gun can eliminate all types of modern medium IFVs on the battlefield. The integration of the AU-220M Baikal RCWS with the upgraded BTR-82A armoured personnel carrier will also increase the internal volume of the vehicle," the source said.

It is noteworthy that the AU-220M unmanned turret is in high demand on both domestic and global arms markets. For instance, Kazakhstan`s MoD has integrated the station with the Barys wheeled armoured vehicle (a licensed copy of the Mbombe IFV developed by the South African Paramount Group). In 2015, the Emirates Defense Technology (EDT) company from the United Arab emirates (UAE) signed with Russia`s JSC Rosoboronexport (a subsidiary of the Rostec state corporation) the agreement to integrate the AU-220M unmanned module with the Enigma 8x8 wheeled APC. "Several nations have already revealed their interest in the acquisition of the AU-220M Baikal RCWS," the source added.
