The TPz-63 (Transportpanzer-63) is an unlicensed copy of the Stasnovan BTR-152 manufactured by the Eichler Roth Corporation in Volgaria, primarily for the export market.

Externally it is nearly identical to the Stasnovan BTR-152 with minor visual differences. Internal changes include an array of chassis and suspension upgrades and a Reimer 6-cylinder diesel engine which provides the TPz-63 additional speed, power and operational range from the BTR-152.
