Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says Kharkiv-based Malyshev Plant State-owned enterprise is assembling the first experimental body of BTR-4 armored personnel carrier. The mass production of this armored vehicle would start if it successfully passes all the tests.

"Now the assembly and welding of the lower part of the armored personnel carrier's body is underway. Welders, fitters and toolmakers of the plant must connect a total of over 1,700 parts, of which more than 400 are armored. If the APC successfully passes tests, the plant will receive a permit to produce them and will be able to start mass production of bodies of armored personnel carriers," Poroshenko wrote on social media on Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

The head of state also said that in addition to the production of the BTR-4 body, the Malyshev Plant, which is part of the Ukroboronprom State Concern, is already preparing for welding the experimental BTR-3 body.

"We continue strengthening Ukrainian army's defense capability!" the president said and posted the relevant video.
