notes"The BMP-1K (BMP M1974) Russian Amphibious Command and Control Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) is designed to transport a section of infantry into combat under protection, and provide fire support with its main armament, as well as a platform from which the infantry can fight. It is designed to be amphibious, and provide sufficient mobility to accompany main battle tanks wherever it might be needed. The BMP-1K is the command variant of the BMP-1 for motorized rifle regiments. This is one of the most common BMP-1 conversions."

name"BMP-1K / BMP-1KSh / BMP M1974 Command Vehicle"
notes"This is the company command version of the BMP-1. It has additional communications equipment, an additional radio aerial on the right rear of the hull, a redesigned troop compartment to incorporate tables and a map board. The firing ports were eliminated. The BMP-1K has two roof hatches, each equipped with a roof-mounted TNPO-170A aiming device. The 73-mm gun is provided with 20 rounds of ready use ammunition, which is loaded manually. Two man-portable surface-to-air missiles are carried. The BMP-1K1 and K2 are equipped with two R-123M radios and a semi-telescopic antenna. The K3 features an R123M radio, R130M and a 33-ft (10-m) telescopic antenna. Another variant, the BMP-1KSh (not to be confused with the KShM) was a regimental and divisional command post vehicle. It was similar to the BMP-1K, except that it was unarmed, has a larger Hawk Eye radio antenna and carries more radio equipment (R-137, R-140M or R-145BM, each with four or five radios). A TNA-3 navigation system is fitted. The crew is provided with a portable 7.62-mm PK machine gun for self-defense. Ref: Military Periscope, April 2016"
name"BMP-1KSh (Ob'yekt 774, 9S743)"
notes"BMP-1KSh (Ob'yekt 774, 9S743) (KSh stands for komandno-shtabnaya – command and staff) – Command and staff variant of the BMP-1 for motorized rifle and tank regiments with a TNA-3 gyroscopic navigation device, two R-111, one R-123MT and one R-130M additional radios as well as telegraph and telephone equipment. The armament was replaced by the AMU "Hawkeye" 10 m long telescopic mast and the turret was fixed. It also had a tubular case for the AMU "Hawkeye" antenna parts on the right rear of the vehicle, an AB-1P/30 1 kW box-shaped portable petrol-electric generator set at the center of the rear part of the hull's roof instead of two roof hatches (two roof hatches immediately behind the turret remain) and four elevatable whip antennas at the rear (two on the left and two on the right). The vehicle weighs 13 tonnes and has a crew of 3 + 4. It is armed with one 7.62 mm PKT machine gun. It officially entered service with the Soviet Army in 1972, production did not start until 1976. It saw service in Afghanistan and Chechnya. There were three variants of the BMP-1KSh, one being the "Potok"- 2, each had different additional equipment (including R-137 or R-140 or R-45 radios). NATO gave it the designation BMP M1978."
