Ukrainian designers have successfully tested two combat stations, one of which will be selected for use on a new upgrade of the BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicle, Ukraine’s state-run weapons industry concern UkrOboronProm said on March 20.

In a statement on its website, the company said the combat stations, named Shkval and Stilet, produced at the Zhytomyr Armored Plant, were tested at a firing range in Zhytomyr Oblast. The tests were designed to assess and compare the stations’ accuracy, speed and efficiency in action.

UkrOboronProm said based on the results of the firing tests, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense would select which station to install on its new, advanced version of the BMP-1.
