   The M-80A infantry fighting vehicle was revealed in 1984. It is a further development of the M-80 IFV.

   The M-80A provides armored protection against large-caliber machine guns. It is fitted with an NBC protection system and automatic fire suppression system.

   This IFV is armed with Spanish HS-804 20-mm cannon and coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun. The M-80A is also fitted with twin launcher for the Sagger anti-tank guided missiles. These missiles are launched from inside the turret.

   Vehicle has a crew of three and can accommodate 7 fully equipped troops. Troops enter and leave the vehicle through the rear doors or roof hatches. Three firing ports are located from each side of the hull and two on the exit doors.

   The main improvement of the M-80A comparing with the previous M-80 is new and more powerful diesel engine. It is powered by the FAMOS 10V003 diesel engine, developing 315 horsepower. Vehicle is fully amphibious and is propelled on water by its tracks.
