    Russian Naval Infantry hasn't any more modern air defence? Why not Tunguska-M1? It would be far better for them instead of old ZSUs guns

    There are not that many Tunguskas in service i guess around 250ish. And Naval infantry is famous for having the most outdated equipment in whole Russian armed forces, BTR60, PT76, Shilka... And look at it this way, Shilka is far better than having towed ZSU-23-2.

    Don't forget the T-55s with Drozd APS What a Face

    I truly hope they replaced those, havent seen them in a while. I heard they got T72Bs to replace those horrid machines some years ago.

    The reason for those choices is the amphibious and the weight requirements in the naval infantry. For example, the amphibious capabilities of the BTR-60, BTR-70, and BTR-80 are a lot better than those of the BMP-1 and BMP-2, and should be better than that of the BMP-3 even, hence the BMMP.

    According to warfare.be these would be the places where the BTR-70 is:



    If replaced in the Russian Marines, it is posible that the BTR-70 is not more in active service for the Russian armed forces.

    BTR60s are still not completely replaced. BTR80AMs started entering units last year to replace BTR60s and BTR70s. In few latest naval infantry videos you can spot those "new" vehicles.

    Seems they are slowly modernizing the naval infantry, as the troops looks better equipped. Although, they still need upgraded tanks. T-72B3M may be more ideal. Or eventually transfer T-90's to them and upgrade to T-72's for the army. Dunno, but I always did see the Naval infantry more like the poverty brigade.

    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.

    "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.

    Equipment by type:

    • MBT 200 T-72/T80

    • RECCE 60 BRDM-2 each with 9K11 (AT-3 Sagger)

    • AIFV 300 BMP-2

    • APC 800; APC (T) 300 MT-LB; APC (W) 500 BTR-80

    • ARTY 365; SP 263: 122mm 113: 95 2S1; 18 2S19; 152mm 150: 50 2A36; 50 2A65; 50 2S3

    • GUN/MOR 66; SP 120mm 42: 12 2S23 NONA-SVK; 30 2S9 NONA-S

    • TOWED; 120mm 24 2B16 NONA-K. MRL 122mm 36 BM-21

    It seems that the BTR-70, BTR-60 and other older warfare is not more with them.

    Surprised with the mention still to the SA-9.
