The BTR-80A is a wheeled amphibious combat vehicle designed as an infantry troops carrier fit for fire support on the battlefield and for its infantry squad to fire from inside the vehicle. The BTR-80A is a BTR-80 derivative retaining its basic units and components. The vehicle features an enhanced firepower weapons suite comprising 2A72 30-mm automatic cannon, a PKTM 7.62-mm coaxial machinegun, a day/night sight and a smoke grenade discharger system.

APC, and utilizes major blocks and assemblies of the latter. It carries a BPPU-1 turret gun mount with a 30 mm 2A72 twin-belt-fed automatic cannon and 7.62mm PKT coaxial machine gun; the gun has an elevation/depression range of -5° to +70° and a full 360° traverse.

The turret mount is equipped with the 1PZ-9 day type sight, TPN3-42 night sight, OU-5M searchlight, and 902V smoke grenade discharging system. The vehicle's ammunition load consists of 300 rounds for the main gun (in two 150-round belts) and a 2,000-round machine gun belt. The gunner can select the type of cannon round needed (thanks to the twin-belt cannon feeding scheme) and adjust the rate of fire depending on target type.

Being 2.1 to 2.4 times more efficient in fighting ground targets than APC-mounted 14.5-mm machine gun, the BPPU-1 also halves vehicle losses to helicopter attacks.

The manually-aimed armament is equipped with braking devices. The main gun is cocked electromechanically. The fire control lever has three positions: for single-shot, low, and high rate of fire. The standard APC firepower is complemented by service firearms, a portable grenade launcher, and a portable surface-to-air missile system of the Strela or Igla type MANPADS.

The vehicle’s design features are relevant to the use of the automatic gun/ machinegun turret. The BTR-80A’s hull is more rigid to ensure the operation of the automatic gun and its accuracy and grouping of shots required. A solution has been incorporated to prevent the organic weapons from hitting the rear of the hull. The feasibility of stabilising the BTR-80A’s turreted weapons and introducing more sophisticated sights and weapons systems has been proven.
