The BTR-80K command vehicle is design for reliable command and control of organic, attached and adjacent units by the infantry battalion commander (marine battalion commander) and for communication with the higher HQ.

The BTR-80K command APC is a derivative of the BTR-80 APC. It has retained its baseline model’s basic tactical and technical characteristics and appearance, which allows concealing the position of the battalion command post’s position from the enemy in battle.

The command vehicle’s crew consists of the vehicle commander, gunner and driver. To accommodate the battalion commander and two of his staff officers, the BTR-80K’s fighting compartment has work stations fitted with tank intercom communication terminals for using the communication radios; folding tables; fans; extra lights, etc. Provision has been made for feeding fresh air to each work station of the crew and commissioned officers, and there are interfaces to connect their gas masks to the filtering unit’s ducts.

For the purpose of effective stable continuous responsive and covert C2, the command vehicle is equipped with VHF-UHF radios, intercom/switching equipment (other communications gear can be installed at the customer’s request), tank navigation system, 11-m-high antenna mast, identification ‘friend or foe’ (IFF) responder and artillery periscope director. Provision is also made for stowing the field telephone and reel with 500 m of telephone cable.

The vehicle mounts the BPU-1 machinegun turret housing the 14.5-mm KPVT and 7.62-mm PKTM machineguns with daytime sight and smoke discharger. The ammunition and equipment stowage has been modified somewhat compared with that of the baseline BTR-80. The combat weight has grown to 13.6 t.
