BTR-4 is actively operated by Ukrainian army during the ATO; UOP SE “Kharkiv Morozov Machine-Building Design Bureau” specialists took into account all comments of the military that arose during BTR-4 operation in combat operations. Thanks to changes in the front of the armored vehicle, as well as its technological solution, in accordance with the latest NATO armament trends, specialists managed to achieve a fundamentally new level of BTR-4protection. When creating BTR-4MV1, developers used a modular approach to building armor protection, using the spaced armor. Such a modular approach allows to quickly replace the elements of the outer layer of the armor in field conditions. This allowed to enhance BTR-4MV1 protection, significantly exceeding any sample of an APC that Ukrainian army is currently operating.

Technological solutions – adopted by Kharkiv Morozov Machine-Building Design Bureau specialists – allowed to increase BTR-4MV1 weight by only 24-25 tons, which is 2-3 tons more than BTR-4. The running gear – the 8×8 wheel formula in conjunction with the German Deutz engine and the American Alisson transmission – remained unchanged: top speed is 110 km / h. In addition, the BTR-4MV1 retained the possibility of crossing water obstacles by swimming, at speeds up to 10 km / h. "BTR-4MV1 provides the highest level of protection for this class of armored vehicles; the modular armor approach and multi-purpose compartments, allowing to room additional fuel tanks, floats or additional armor – we can now re-equip BTR-4MV1 in minimal time. In addition, the use of combat modules also allows replacing of armament of a combat vehicle. As of today, the BTR-4MV1 can be adapted for to perform any task – from patrol to amphibious vehicle for marines. This approach – used in the best samples of armored vehicles of NATO countries, is already implemented in Ukrainian BTR-4", – said the head of UOP SE “Kharkiv Morozov Machine-Building Design Bureau” Oleksiy Babich.
