The BMP-3 is a Russian amphibious infantry fighting vehicle, successor to the BMP-1 and BMP-2. BMP stands for Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty (Боевая Машина Пехоты, literally "Infantry Combat Vehicle")
Battlefield 2: Special ForcesEdit
The BMP-3 in Battlefield 2: Special Forces is an unique vehicle operated by the Russian Spetsnaz , Russian Rebel Forces, MECSF and Insurgent Forces, it can hold up to 5 players (driver crew, 4 passengers). It functions similiar to infantry fighting vehicles in the game. However, the BMP-3 has primary armaments similar to a main battle tank; the co-axial autocannon is curiously missing. The passengers also do not have machine gun ports like in other infantry fighting vehicles, but rather ride in the passenger compartment. Also while in the passenger compartment players can see one another, also it works well as an amphibious tank due to the 100mm gun and large troop carrying capacity. It be can also be used as a tank destroyer due to the large main gun.
Its weakness is rather its weak armor that can take usually two to three anti-tank rocket launchers to destroy and can be sometimes be taken down by an regular IFV
