Primarily used by the North Koreans as a transport for anti-tank guns and heavier anti-aircraft guns, The BTR-40 APC was nevertheless used to move troops en masse. The KPA had adopted Soviet mechanized doctrines after all. It was vehicles like the BTR40 that provided the swift education needed in logistical warfare.

In its original variant, the APC had a carrying capacity of eight soldiers. However, it soon was modified to the BTR-40A. This was designed as a mobile anti-aircraft vehicle, but could also be effective against light vehicles and infantry. In this configuration, the manually operated turret sported twin 14.5mm KPVT heavy machine guns.
