The BMP-3M variant was a late 1990s attempt at a major modernization of the BMP-3 that included a more powerful engine, a better FCS and improved gun-launched ATGMs. Other improvements included the option to install the Arena-E hard-kill APS. An unknown number of these vehicles was built for both the Russian Federation and for export but the production run was likely limited. It's worth noting that there are several vehicles with the BMP-3M designation (including the Derivatsiya and the Dragun) and even usually reliable sources often contradict each other. The actual number of users and produced vehicles is therefore unknown.
