Even at that stage it was a million times better than of BMP-2..

The Vehicle was design as per Army needs, And only thing imported was the engine and transmission, rest was originate from India..

What abhya was in 2009 now BMP-2 is becoming with upgrades but minus the Armour protection and electronic so does firepower..
