Ukraine is reportedly developing new heavy infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) based on the Oplot-M main battle tank’s (MBT) chassis.

Designated as ‘Berserk’, Defence Blog quoted a source as saying that the Berserk IFV will have internal space for three crew and eight passengers. In lieu of the Oplot-M’s welded 125-mm based gun turret, the Berserk will be armed with a remotely operated weapon station with (seemingly) a 25-mm or 30-mm cannon.

The Berserk IFV will be configured with explosive reactive armour (ERA), an active protection system (APS), and 360-degree viewing for the crew. The IFV’s frame will comprise of “multi-layered combined stationary armour with elements of composite materials”.
