A fire control system introduced into the BMP-3 turret ensures effective engagement of ground and aerial targets day and night at halt and on the move. The FCS comprises SOZH main gunner's sight, gunner and commander's air defence sights, TKN-AI commander's vision device, an armament stabilizer and a ballistic computer. The BMP-3 turret can be equipped with Vesna-K thermal imaging sight and Eagle Eye commander's panoramic thermal imaging sight at customer's request. The SOZH and Eagle Eye sights are fitted with laser range finders.
Elevation and traverse drives ensure electromechanical guidance of the weapons cluster with manual back-up.
The turret is equipped with communication means and a loading mechanism for the 100-mm gun launcher.
The camouflage and protection means introduced into the turret increase the vehicle survivability, namely 902V smoke grenade launch system, or Shtora-1 protection system against high precision weapons, or Arena-E defensive aids suite.
All-round surveillance for the crew is ensured by seven vision devices.
