    First 22 BMD-4M delivered in 2015.
    There are also 30-40 BMD-3/4. Mostly for testing but it was considered unsatisfactory so the 4M was developed.

    Russia to focus on re-equipping airborne forces
    Nikolai Novichkov, Moscow - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly | 05 May 2016

    Here: http://www.janes.com/article/60022/russia-to-focus-on-re-equipping-airborne-forces

    The re-equipment of Russian Airborne Forces (VDV) with new military hardware is a priority for the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) and is enshrined in the 2025 State Armament Programme, according to the VDV's chief, Army General Vladimir Shamanov.

    He said on 2 May that the "current course of international events" near Russia's borders and in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) countries has a tendency to aggravation. "Hence the VDV, being a mobile rapid task force, is to take the priority in the rearmament process. We are taking such priority, as the share of modern and upgraded equipment (for VDV) in the 2025 State Rearmament programme is increasing," Gen Shamanov said.

    Under the current armament programme the VDV was to be 30% armed with modern equipment by the end of 2015, and 70% by the end of 2020. "Last year we reported … that VDV was re-armed with new and upgraded military hardware [to a level of] 41%. Hence, we are ahead of schedule," said Gen Shamanov. He mentioned that currently the VDV is receiving Ratnik advanced soldier kits, upgraded artillery and rocket-artillery systems, as well as new sniper rifles, small arms, and light weapons. Unmanned equipment for the service is also being developed, he added.

    According to Gen Shamanov, the VDV will soon reveal its new 120mm Zauralets-D air-droppable self-propelled gun (SPG). "Zauralets-D will be demonstrated for the first time in the near future. The 120mm SPG will feature improved accuracy, firing range, and other specifications," he said. Zauralets-D will be based on the same chassis as the BMD-4M and BTR-MDM vehicles, deliveries of which started in 2015.

    The Russian defence industry is also producing a mock-up of the new Taifun (Typhoon) armoured vehicle intended for the VDV, Gen Shamanov said. "Russian industry has developed a 4x4 armoured car intended for special forces, and special and reconnaissance units of VDV under the Taifun programme.

    Russian Airborne Force to receive three battalions of BMD-4M fighting vehicles in 2017

    Airborne Force units and formations will also be provided with more than 60 BTR-MDM Rakushka armored personnel carriers

    MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS/. Russia’s Airborne Force will receive three battalion sets of BMD-4M airborne assault vehicles and more than 60 BTR-MDM Rakushka armored personnel carriers, Airborne Force Deputy Commander for Logistics Major-General Nariman Timergazin said on Tuesday.

    "Beginning with 2014, Airborne Force units and formations have been provided one by one with modern BMD-4M and multipurpose BTR-MDM armored vehicles. By now, two battalion sets of BMD-4M vehicles and about 40 BTR-MDM Rakushka APCs have been operational in the troops. In 2017, our units and formations will receive another three battalion sets of BMD-4Ms and over 60 BTR-MDMs," the general said, without specifying the number of armored vehicles per battalion set.

    As compared to the armies of foreign countries, except for China, the Russian Airborne Force’s fighting vehicles are air mobile machines dropped by parachutes, including with crews inside them, from Ilyushin Il-76, Antonov An-12 and, in the future, from An-148 planes, he noted.

    Also, only the Russian Airborne Force’s airborne assault vehicles and armored personnel carriers can negotiate water obstacles on the move, without preliminary preparations while same-type vehicles from NATO member states need four hours of preparations on average before crossing a river, Timergazin said.

    Moreover, NATO armored vehicles need another 1.5-2 hours after negotiating a water obstacle to start moving on the opposite shore to dismantle special floating equipment, he added.

    The Airborne Force deputy commander citied some operational characteristics of the BMD-4M airborne assault vehicle. Specifically, the vehicle is armed with a 100mm gun - an antitank guided missile launcher and a coaxial gun that are capable of delivering fire at the enemy’s manpower and armored targets at a distance of up to 6,500 km in the daytime and up to 3,000 kilometers at night, which exceeds by more than two times the characteristics of its predecessor BMD-2. The BMD-4M can develop a maximum speed of 70km/hour on roads and 10km/hour afloat.
