Drone footage captured the latest armored fighting vehicle tests with Russian airborne troops on Wednesday. Paratroopers took the armored BMD-4M through its paces in sub-zero conditions at the Dubrovichi Testing Ground in the Ryazan Region.

The main difference with the thoroughly reworked fighting vehicle from its predecessor, the BMD-4, is its ability to carry more troops after its gun was removed. It also enjoys a remodeled outer body, new engine and chassis.
