It is virtually a modified BMP-1 turret which may be fitted to the vehicle in lieu of the original turret. The modification includes replacement of the 73 mm cannon with a 14.5 mm machine gun. The cannon, ammunition conveyor, automatic loading mechanism and ATGM launching and guiding system have been removed from the turret. As the other components including controls have been retained, the logistic support and the training of gunners are virtually identical to those of the BMP-1.
