Russian firm Tractor Plants has received acquisition requests from Myanmar and Morocco for 60 BMP-3 amphibious infantry fighting vehicles.

"As of today, we have received requests for the acquisition of the BMP-3 from Myanmar and Morocco. I cannot disclose the exact amount, but we are talking about somewhere in the region of two battalions," a representative of the Russian company Tractor Plants was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti today.

The anti-infantry vehicles are manufactured by the Kurganmashzavod company, part of the Tractor Plants machine-building consortium.

Formal discussions to purchase the BMP-3 had not commenced, the Tractor Plants spokesperson said. But even Myanmar is keen to buy the BMP-3F version, which has been modified for seaworthiness and buoyancy.

Tractor Plants is a domestic as well as foreign company exhibiting at the 10th annual Russia Arms Expo RAE-2015 international arms show, underway in the city of Nizhny Tagil.
