22.02.2007 - Kharkiv, Ukraine -- Representatives of the State-owned Enterprise Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (SOE KMDB) headed by the General Designer Mykhailo D. Borysiuk took part at the IDEX'2007 defence exhibition (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates), demonstrating the Dozor-B 4x4 armoured personnel carrier designed and manufactured by the SOE KMDB as a private venture.

BTR-3E1 armoured personnel carrier

The Dozor-B armoured personnel carrier (APC) was developed by the SOE KMDB as a private venture. The first example of the APC was repeatedly demonstrated at specialised exhibitions and presentations in Ukraine and arose a considerable interest among experts and potential customers.

Apart from the driver, commander and gunner, the vehicle can accommodate up to eight troops, with the protection of the vehicle crew being paid much attention to. The armoured hull ensures protection against small arms fire and shell splinters. The special shape, double bottom, improved fasteners of seats, the front wheels positioned far afore of the driver's position and armoured bulkhead between the engine and the crew compartment provide a reliable protection against mines. The vehicle is also fitted with an collective NBC protection system and a fire suppression system.

The new version of the vehicle is powered by a diesel engine that meets the EURO-3 Deutz BF 4M 1013FC requirements and develops 190 hp with a maximum torque of 700 Nm. The engine is united in one assembly with the Allison 1000LCT automatic hydraulic-and-mechanical transmission, which features five forward gears and one reverse gear.

The Dozor-B can form a basis for a family of specialist vehicles, including:

  • armoured personnel carrier;

  • police vehicle;

  • radiation and chemical agent detection vehicle;

  • command vehicle;

  • ambulance;

  • reconnaissance vehicle;

  • general purpose vehicle etc.
