    Well a commemoration of the defeat of Nazi Germany is probably not worth Obamas precious time... never really like that guy....

    Seems like the West will be conspicous by its absense at an event bringing together the world's leading states and economies in 'isolated' Russia this 9th of May Laughing

    cheers so they ARE showing bumerangs after all. So much for the talks about how they were defective and had severe delays...

    BTW the kurganets seam to have very short guns. Why won't they show the ones with 45mm or 57mm guns ?Sad

    Do you have evidence of this "intensive testing"?


    Because I have not heard anything firm since GurKhan showed that pic.

    I think it is foolish to assume progress is being made on something we are not even sure is being ordered/wanted by the military.

    GurKhan posts disinformation all the time.

    45mm? i've never heard about it and it's been months i say to myself "why pick between 30 or 57mm, one is too light, the other is overkill, 45mm seems perfect, comparable in size to 40mm of NATO and even more room for HE ammo, and russia had many 45mm systems in the past"....

    Someone can show me what's it's all about? Is it based on post WW2 45mm AA cartridge or WW2 (in fact 1930s) AT gun cartridge?

    It is a brand new design that was played with in the 1980s as a replacement for the 30 x 165mm shell in the Soviet Air Force, Army, and Navy.

    It has a telescopic case and would be a very modern powerful round.

    Rumour has it that the updated 57mm round of the S-60 AAG and ZSU-57-2 SPAAG won because of the larger capacity of the projectile for guided shells and other special newly developed rounds.

    That anti-tank gun was a legend. It was nicknamed Sorokapiadke (Fourtyfiver)

    Finland's president to skip Victory Day parade in Moscow

    The Ukrainian conflict and international situation are cited as the reason for the president's refusal to take part in the celebrations

    HELSINKI, March 25. /TASS/. Finland's President Sauli Niinisto has no plans to attend the Moscow celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War on May 9, the Finnish Telegraph Bureau reported on Wednesday.

    The bureau quoted the president's office as saying that "the Ukrainian conflict and international situation" were the causes for Niinisto's refusal to take part in the celebrations.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said last week that 26 heads of state, including the leaders of India, South Africa, Mongolia, Vietnam. Cuba and North Korea, have already confirmed they will attend the celebrations in Moscow.

    "Invitations to the celebrations were sent to 68 heads of state, as well as the UN, UNESCO, Council of Europe and EU chiefs," Lavrov said.

    With western IFVs weighing about the same as a WWII T-34 tank (about 32 tons or more) the 30mm cannon of today just doesn't cut it in terms of reliably defeating enemy IFVS... which is a primary purpose of the main cannon on an IFV... defeat enemy IFVs, and carry missiles able to defeat tanks.

    that means a 57mm gun plus Kornet-EM missiles would be an ideal combination... the 57mm gun has enough HE fire power to replace the old 100mm rifled gun and rather more armour piercing power to defeat armour than the 30mm will ever have.

    It also offers the potential for laser beam riding 57mm HE rounds for use against aircraft and ground targets out to about 16km in the naval version.

    Note there is a naval 57mm equivalent but no current 45mm equivalent in service so new ammo could be developed for both weapons.

    This video is entitled 'BMP-3 is preparing to participate in the Victory Day parade'.

    If the model shown in the video is the same model as that being currently produced for the army (i.e. this is, what, the third iteration of BMP-3 orders for the army?) - then they've upgraded the 'base' Army model again. The gunner's sight has been upgraded with that of the BMP-3M (i.e. it finally has a thermal imaging channel), but contrary to the BMP-3M prototypes, the old lamp-style IR searchlight on the commander's cupola has been upgraded with the newer, PL-1 square laser searchlight that is prevalent on Russian vehicles nowadays (i.e. BTR-82A, upgraded BMD-2s, etc).

    We'll find out close to parade day, I guess.

    These BMP-3Ms are currently being produced for Azerbaijan, so not necessarily.

    are you sure about that 45mm? It seems to me they would use the 45mm post war naval thing, as described here it's a big mean cartridge more powerful than classic WW2 AT gun cartridge (and other various 45mm like YAK 9 gun or early 45mm AA)

    http://russianammo.org/Russian_Ammunition_Page_57mm.html

    "45x386SR 45mm SM-20-ZIF1 and ZIF-68-1 anti aircraft gun"

    http://russianammo.org/45naval1.jpg

    "900m/s HE" claimed on tony williams' website. Pretty mean mofo of a round.

    But 57mm may be the right choice indeed. After all the 57mm is not even much bigger than the 45mm (case is even shorter)! so it would be possible to carry as much 57mm as 45mm, the choice is indeed obvious.

    I know, was a good gun, but the M1942 version was a fantastic gun, comparable in penetration to Pak 38 but lighter and with a reliable access to APCR ammo, still was used in korea and scored success against US tanks. As far as i know, M42 ammo was not compatible with earlier short 45mm guns, though the cartridge case was the same.
