    Obtaining T-72s while we have dozens of M-84s that can be overhauled and placed back in service, and are younger than those T-72s... and obtaining BMP-2s while we have dozens of M-80s that also can be overhauled and modernised. Sounds like logistic nightmare, even worse than one we already had.


    I quite agree. The T-72 in service could be upgraded and the M-84 also could be upgraded they have the skills to do it. T-72 with help from Russia or Belarus  could be upgraded. I believe that the T-72 their getting were gifted or bought at token price. The
    M-80 could easily be upgraded similar to berezhok. They already have M-80AB1 30mm gun and 2T5 anti tank missiles. I would upgrade on this with an AGS and an another variant of M-80 armed with a mix of malyutka with following variants:
    2T5(radio guided 5km range for long range sniping)
    9M14-2T (tandem warhead improved penetration)
    9M14-2F (thermobaric warhead)
    this would give theM a multi purpose missile carrier the malyutka still (in upgraded form) a fairly decent ATGW it's cheap  (probably the cheapest) and they have the means to produce it. Serbia should spend money on upgrading current equipment that still is useful rather than one off prototypes that they will never buy. They have many vehicles in storage mainly M-80, M-84, T-55, BTR-60, BTR-50. M-84 could be upgraded and there's no reason why Serbia couldn't make their own TOS or BMPT (using upgraded malyutka) using M-84 or T-55 chassis.
    M-80 could also be upgraded or used ATGW.
    BTR-60 as command or ATGW or Air defence with strelets or zu-23-2ZOM type upgrade and as for
    BTR-50 they showcased a turret version with 20 or 30 mm gun and malyutka although i think this vehicles armour is took week to be a good AFV but i rather think it would be more suited as a mortar carrier with it roof opening doors a 120mm mortar or an 82mm automatic mortar would be ideal. these dont have to be expensive upgrades and nothing outwith there technology know how. This would allow them to field a capable ground  force.

    I agree, but...although we have in reserve 200 of M-80's, it is questionable in what condition are they, after almost 2 decades of total negligence. Maybe our military HQ thinks it will be needed a lot of money per unit to get them operational, so they decided to get 30 or 60 BMP-2's, cos it's cheaper. unshaven
    Making BMPT's out of T-55A's is great idea, they can even make some of them into something like Israeli Achzarit, but who knows what they have in their minds. Above all, I'm not sure they know what are they doing, honestly. Neutral

    Serbian Armed Forces - Page 4 Empty Some questions and further info on the BVP M-80A armored fighting vehicle

    Post  0nillie0 on Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:18 am

    Hi all. I have been doing some basic research on the BVP M-80A afv, which was in service with the Yugoslav Ground Forces, and today is still being used by some armies, most notably Serbia.
    Most of the basic info regarding the BVP M-80A can be found online, but i hope that maybe somebody here has some experience or knoweldge on the vehicle, and can shed some light on some of the questions :

    1. Armor protection
    Regarding the protection of the BVP M-80(A), various sources claim that they used alimunium in combination with titanium for the armor, as well as steel. But i can not seem to find much detail about which materials where used for what components. I would assume that the aluminium/titanium would be used for the chassis, while the armor itself would be steel, but perhaps i see it wrong? Also, how does its armor stack up against the BMP-1 in terms of protection of the crew compartment? Does it also feature improvements to the protection of driver / commander from mine blasts?

    2. Fuel
    Where are the fuel tanks located ? Did they use the same design as the BMP-1 and put additional fuel in to the rear doors? Is the main fuel tank located in between the 2 rows of seating in the crew compartment?

    3. Weapons
    The most commonly used variant BVP-M80A appears to be armed with a 20mm M-55 cannon, which AFAIK feeds from 60 rounds magazines. Later options include the 30mm Zastava guns, but i think i have read somewhere that these gun also have limited capacity of 40 rounds per belt due to the mechanism used. I assume that the dual feed variant has 80 rounds of ready to fire ammunition? Is the 30mmm variant adopted by Serbia or another nation, or do vehicles in actual service continue to use the old 20mm guns? The 30mm seems to be a rather powerfull cannon, which is also compact and simple to maintain/use, but the limitation of the belt length could be considered problematic?  

    4. FCS
    The BVP M-80 looks like it had some good sensors for the gunner. I can find only limited info about the components, but i am guessing the gunner had a combined day/night sight, using a passive image intensifier for night or adverse weather condition.Like in BMP-2, there is a second sight for engaging aerial targets at high elevation. Commander uses "traditional" passive/active infrared sights. Has the sights been upgraded on current vehicles? how is the gun stabilization ?

    Overall, i am quite impressed with this little machine. For its time it seems to be  a rather balanced solution with some nice features. I saw recently that Yugoimport is offering a non-amphibious modernised version with passive add-on armor, better FCS and improved one man turret. Is Serbia or Croatia interested in this upgrade?

    Thanks to whoever can answer some of these questions, or tell me a bit more about this machine.

    For very light vehicles aluminium is commonly used because of the laws of physics.

    If you make a component in steel and then scale back the thickness to reduce weight you can get to the point where it is not structurally strong enough to do what it is supposed to do despite being the right weight.

    If you replace it with a lighter metal like Aluminium you can get rather more thickness for the same weight... and 5mm of steel compared with 20mm of Aluminium means the lighter metal is actually a better choice. note that neither will even stop small arms fire so in terms of protection it does not make any difference which you choose.

    Thanks to whoever can answer some of these questions, or tell me a bit more about this machine.

    I am SAM servicemen, so i wasnt in mechanised corps but i had the pleasure to break my neck twice in BVP-80 with the grunts so i will throw in some things.

    1. To my knowledge there is no titanium or aluminium used on BVP-80, tho i did read it more than once online, possibly written by keyboard warriors. My father says its made by welded rolled homogenus steel sheets that are in thickness of 9, 12 and 14mm. On later variants of it (never fiedled) wheels were to be replaced tho by aluminium casted ones, due to problems with steel ones. Armored protection itself is abit better than on BMP-1 on its sides, rest of the protection is more or less comparable to it.

    Even tho by the book it was supposed to be able and survive direct hits from 20mm shell from its front, it was more often than not penetrated by 12,7mm HMGs, from sides its protected aganist 8mm Mauser (7,9x57mm) FMJ. There is no additional armor liner or "double hull" under driver for mine protection.

    2. Fuel is in the middle, you actually kinda sit on the fuel tanks. Face-outwards as you are supposed to use gunports... gl with that one.

    3. Yes, 20mm cannon is used on all BVP-80s in service. While cannon itself is okay, feeding mechanism is problematic and it seems no gunner ever in its lifetime managed to fire whole belt without jamming. 30mm ammo while more effective would turn the turret into living Hell as there is actually more space in box of sardins.

    4. Gun doesnt have stabilisation hahaah Smile. Sorry, but that was so cute, you actually thought it had gyroscopic stabilisation Razz. There is/was actually variant which featured stabilisation but it was never fielded due to...well...breakup of Yugoslavia. Yes there is image intensifier PNS-1 and daylight sight DNS-1. There are also two periscopes, TPKU2B as daylight, and TKN-1 IC periscope which was very, very rarely used by the commander. And sights are the same as they were.

    Serbia is apparently interested in its modernisation (Croatia would rather throw them into the sea than do anything with Serbia) the variant that you saw. However its questionable how viable is that modernisation in general or how to put it: "Is it worth the trouble".

    Overkill... No

    We need BUK not S-300

    Unless Chincoms trimmed down the system to 2 tubes per 1 standard size truck it's all redundant anyway...

    Quite funny indeed. Serbia may have gotten a loan from China in order to buy it. Which would make sense.

    But as Papa said, they need Buks. And I imagine Tor as well to protect Buk sites. Buk-M3 being probably best option OR the chinese knockoff that is more or less a land variant of Shtil-1 which is vertical launch Buk.

    They already think about buying chinese drones. More SRBM and long range rocket artillery would be a better investment than a copy of an old buk. And why not a dpuzen of jf-17 jets.

    If this Chinese system is really good, I'm all for it. We need something like that to scare off potential predators, especially NATO countries. I've heard that drones we are buying from China are coming in the same package with technology transfer. That is an excellent news. Wink

    I'd imagine that if they got S -300 it would be small in number and more of political show of power as like people have said it's over kill. Moscow could of course donate or token price 4 systems and this would provide long range deterrence. 

    Ideally Buk M-3 would be great but unlikely to happen. M2 or buk MB and some belarussian stilets would be enough (could do a deal for buk MB & stilets together) Tor nice but too pricey. Pantsir with possible additional tunguska(donated/token price) and sonsa R. And a mix of manpads/strelets/dhigit/zu-23-2ZOM, possibly zsu-23-4M. With their modernised s-125, kub, sa-13. They would be good. 

    Biggest problem is money. Hence they would need a loan and receive token prices and donations. Upgraded zsu-23-4 & zu-23-2, sa-13 along with manpads/strelets would be sufficient for short range. The Pantsir/Tunguska would protect Buk, S-125, kub and sonsa R and stilets could be used to protect other units or buildings. The Buk Pantsir sonsa are moderately only expensive the rest are cheap including upgrades and providing favorable prices given.

    Token prices lmao... lol1 Stop it. There's little value for the Federation in doing that. One day Serbia could have S-300's, the next day the area where the S-300s were transported become a new country that pledges NATO allegiance the first day of it's existence. The political elite in Serbia is too inept and weak to protect their own territory...hello NATO member Montenegro? Next a hydro-electric dam was seized by Kosovo/Albanian special forces...aka Ethnic Bondstealians. If anything that needs investment is spinal-cord transplants for their spineless liberal elite. Neo-liberalism can turn 'Men in to Mice', see the immediate post-Soviet space for reference.

    They need at least 3 divizions (bth's) of long range SAM's plus additional MR and SR SAMs....apparently that's the conclusion of an official study

    From what I gather, the cost for the refurbished S-300 is just under $300 million (3 x btn's), while they're apparently getting the FK-3 for about $100 million

    You realise that Russia supported the independence of Montenegro back in 2006?? Pretty major own goal and slap in the face.

    I suppose they thought Oleg Deripaska and Roman Abramovich would be running the show from their hotels and yachts of the MN coast

    Quite funny indeed.  Serbia may have gotten a loan from China in order to buy it.  Which would make sense.

    But as Papa said, they need Buks.  And I imagine Tor as well to protect Buk sites.  Buk-M3 being probably best option OR the chinese knockoff that is more or less a land variant of Shtil-1 which is vertical launch Buk.

    Not sure if loan, however this... creature we currently call President, said that "its already being paid for" and...that "certain equipment from China is coming free of charge". So we probably gave them something far more valuable in return... half of the country or something.

    If this Chinese system is really good, I'm all for it. We need something like that to scare off potential predators, especially NATO countries. I've heard that drones we are buying from China are coming in the same package with technology transfer. That is an excellent news. Wink    

    Full ToT is out of the question. However we are ground zero in certain areas of UAV tech, so we might get things we lack from the Chinese in order to finish few our mockups that we are dragging around for decade.

    That is a shame.

    Maybe Serbia will be obtaining a lot of potential development from China? Dunno.

    We shall see. They mentioned some Chinese aid in domestic UAV development too.

    What are prospects of Chinese economic investments in Serbia?
