The Bangladesh army has ordered 80 additional wheeled armoured vehicles personnel carrier BTR-80 which will be used in peacekeeping missions of the UN by the armed forces of Bangladesh.
The contract on purchase of the armored personnel carriers was signed earlier and almost definitely reflected the need of the armed forces of the country for acquisition of additional 80 vehicles.
These will probably be BTR-80 made by the Arzamas machine-building plant (AMZ), a part of Military Industrial Company (VPK). Since the 1990s, the army of Bangladesh purchased several batches of BTR-80. By now, their quantity exceeded 200.
