The BTR-94 is a Ukrainian amphibious armoured personnel carrier (Bronetransporter), a modification of the Soviet eight-wheeled BTR-80. The BTR-94's turret BAU-23x2[1] is larger than the BTR-80's BPU-1 and is fitted with a twin 23x152mm gun 2A7M with 200 rounds, a coaxial KT-7.62 machine gun with 2,000 rounds, six 81 mm smoke grenade launchers and a combined optical sight 1PZ-7-23. Each 2A7M gun has a max. rate of fire of 850 rds/min. The same gun is mounted on the ZSU-23-4. The BAU-23x2 module can also be mounted on other armoured vehicles like the BTR-70 or Ratel IFV.
