    For a spearhead force their MBTs are appallingly dated.
    B3 would be the minimum for these guys and yet they don't have them.

    +1

    Was it T-55M or T-62M they operated as recently as a few years ago?

    Hobo brigade lol1

    PS. I ironically the US Marines complain about their tank force being a step behind Army's since the 90s.

    In Russia, developed a new floating armored vehicle BT-3F



    Concern "Tractor plants" developed on the basis of the naval variant of infantry fighting vehicle BMP-3F new floating tracked armored personnel carrier BT-3F. This was reported by TASS source in the Russian military-industrial complex.
    "Concern" Tractor plants "completes the design of BT-3F armored personnel carriers and plans to show it at the international military-technical forum the Russian Defense Ministry, which will be held in Moscow in the park" Patriot "from 6 to 11 September", - said the source. - It can partially replace the BTR-80 on Marine Russian Navy. We hope that the Ministry of Defence will pay attention to the new machine. "

    "Mass production and mass supply of armored personnel carriers BT-3F Russian troops can be established as soon as possible, due to the high level of unification of the new platform with the BMP-3"

    According to the representative of UIC, combat weight of BT-3F is 18.5 tons, booking machines provides comprehensive protection from bullets of caliber 14.5 mm heavy machine gun KPVT fired from a distance of 200 m.

    It would make sense to traslate this concept to the modern BMD-4M platform. It would make sense. Even it would be interesting to make them airdropable to the sea.

    Also it would make sense to provide the Naval Infantry with other vehicles of the BMD-4M platform of different roles.

    I have the feeling that Airborne Troops and Marine Infantry have many things in common, and that it would be possible to merge both in something like  Airborne/Shipborne Troops, with the same troops trained for both transport ways and common roles.

    During the Georgian conflict they cooperated quite a lot and afterwards greatly increased training together... merging equipment and vehicle needs would be sensible in my opinion.

    They are better know as fierce fighters than as state of the art equipped ones... but that will change too.

    I would expect the Russian Naval Infantry to be armed with the warfare developed on the BMD-4M platform.

    In fact even it is possible a merge between the Airborne and the "Shipborne Troops" (Naval Infantry).

    In fact the BMD-4M, BTR-MD, Typhoon-K (6x6 Kamaz 63968) and the Typhoon-U (6x6 Ural 63096) are emerging like the basis of the future light armoured vehicles, in the refered to the infantry vehicles. These are the main vehicles that are emerging on the new light platforms for the Russian Armed Forces (BMD-4M and Typhoon). There is a strong effort finding other light solutions, but nothing better is emerging. Also, it will be a bigger development for vehicles of other roles based on the BMD-4M and the Typhoon 6x6 platforms. As example, we begin to see self propelled artillery pieces on the BMD-4M platform.

    I tend to think that this basis will be adopted by the Naval Infantry, the Airborne Troops and the special military forces that need vehicles smaller than the Kurganets and the Boomerang.

    These are the main vehicles that are emerging on the new light platforms for the Russian Armed Forces (BMD-4M and Typhoon). We also begin to see self propelled artillery pieces on the BMD-4M platform, and it will be a bigger development.

    It is the right time to stop the procurement of the MT-LB and the BTR-80, including their most modern variants (plus the 2S23 and the SA-13). I do not expect to see them in the next armament program. I expect to see the vehicles based on the BMD-4M and the Typhoon 6x6 platforms.

    Currently we have Project 1400M in the Northern Fleet and Project 1204 in the Caspian flotilla, the 1204 being better armed and more what you're looking for.
