    Book. wrote:New Gas-Turbine Engine Trial Fall 2017: Arctic IFV Rytsar
    Here: http://mil.today/2017/Arctic1/

    Development of advanced infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) Rytsar equipped with gas-turbine engine and electric transmission is under way; trials of the combat vehicle are scheduled in the falls, an insider in the Concern Tractor Plants told Mil.Today.

    According to the interviewee, the Rytsar IFV is being created by JSC Special Machine Building Design Bureau, virtually, on its own initiative. Currently, the project is at the "payment stage", the vehicle components are being designed. Moreover, creation of the new IFV coincides with the concern’s reorganization process, the spokesman added

    The Russian Defense Ministry plans to deploy the perspective vehicle in the Arctic where the gas turbine powerplant will operate better than the diesel one. The military wants the Rytsar IFVs to be supplied to Arctic-based motorized infantry brigades. The new combat vehicle must be powered with 400-hp engine, and its weight will exceed 20 tons, which is heavier than BMP-3.

    The engine for Rytsar IFV has been already designed and is being tested now, but so far this powerplant develops only 380 hp, a source in the Kaluga-based experimental design bureau of motor building told Mil.Today. To increase power, the new turbine needs another supercharger and additional funding. The work on the new generator continues as well. According to the interviewee, the engine will pass from the test-bed trials to the field ones by the coming fall

    Next gen Arctic BMP?  Surprised

    20+ ton IFV  ✔️
    GTD 400 HP  ✔️

    Rytsar will be based on the T-15 heavy IFV

    Indeed, but tonnage isn't everything. Armata platform vehicles can have wider tracks, offer more protection, can have more sensors and weaponry equipped and so on.

    Russian army to get bulk of Terminator armored vehicles in 2018

    The vehicle is equipped with two 30mm-caliber 2A42 autocannons and a 7.62mm-caliber PKTM twin-mount machine gun

    MOSCOW, September 26. /TASS/. The majority of the Terminator tank support combat vehicles will be delivered to the Russian army in 2018, Uralvagonzavod’s Director General Alexander Potapov said on Tuesday.

    "We intend to send the bulk of the vehicles (the Terminators - TASS) in 2018," he stated.

    The Russian Defense Ministry’s Tank-Automation Commander Alexander Shevchenko said earlier that the Terminator combat vehicles would be put into service in the Russian army this year.

    He noted that this is "a vehicle of a brand-new class" that "has already attracted many countries, chiefly Israel and Syria." The tank support fighting vehicle has successfully passed all types of tests, the general specified.

    The Russian Defense Ministry inked a contract to deliver the Terminators at the Army 2017 forum. The total sum of the agreements sealed between the Defense Ministry and Uralvagonzavod back then had surpassed 24 bln rubles ($417 mln).

    The Terminator’s combat weight is 44 tonnes, according to the producer’s website. The vehicle is equipped with two 30mm-caliber 2A42 autocannons and a 7.62mm-caliber PKTM twin-mount machine gun.

    Considering they are based on a T-72 chassis if they are going to convert it would be T-72's dunno why they would waste a T-90 over this.

    What I'm wondering is how many Terminators can be acquired for $417,000,000 (24 bln rubles)? In that case, knowing the approximate cost of a single unit would be useful in estimating the total unspecified number of BMPTs the Russian MoD ordered from Uralvagonzavod. The contract probably includes other products and services, including Terminator 2s. So I guess we won't know for certain until more information is available.

    Much better to use t-72 chassi. It is much more cheaper and with the big turret's weight in less you can add as much as you want protections like applique armour or bigger era with a final price still less than a t-90. You can even use first series of t-72 which cost even less than half a million and add protection to the lvl of modern tanks and even better.
