    Among the 3 vehicles shown recently, Dragun with its unmanned 100 mm + 30 mm turret is front-engined. The Derivatsiya, with its "57 mm" unmanned turret, and the robot, with an Epokha turret, are rear-engined.

    India to procure 149 Russia-licensed BMP-2 IFV
    30 October 2015 SPUTNIK, BORIS EGOROV, RIR

    The Indian Defence Ministry on Thursday approved the acquisition of 149 BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles to be built in the country under license from Russia, The Times of India reported.

    The decision, adopted by the ministry's Defence Acquisitions Council (DAC), comes shortly before Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar departs on visit to Russia on Friday, the newspaper said.

    India is set to spend over $140 million to acquire new army vehicles, according to the newspaper.

    A potential contract for 149 BMP-2 stipulates the licensed assembly of military vehicles directly in India at the facilities of one of the plants of the Ordnance Factory Board, a state holding company for the production of ammunition, weapons and vehicles.

    The details of the contract are due to be discussed during Parrikar's visit to Moscow, the media outlet reported, citing an Indian military source.

    According to the IHS Jane’s defense journal, the Indian Army operates 1,000-1,200 license-built BMP-2/2K infantry combat vehicles.

    MOSCOW, May 30 -. RIA News Corporation "Uralvagonzavod" and JSC "Central Research Institute" Petrel "intend to install on infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3, a new 57-mm automatic remotely operated artillery module AU-220M" Baikal ", writes the newspaper" Izvestia ".

    BMP complex facilities that will significantly expand the capabilities of combat vehicles, as of today there are no armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, which are able to withstand the shot, "Baikal" in the world, the newspaper notes.

    Over 200 BMP-3's to supplied up to end of 2017. A brigade takes 120 so expect this order is for 240 units or 2 brigades.

    How the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles are being manufactured at Kurganmashzavod OJSC

    Perhaps the most famous production, manufactured today by the Kurgan Machine Building Plant (KMZ), is the infantry fighting vehicle BMP-3.

    Designed at the Special Design Bureau (KSBM), KMZ BMP under the designation "Object 688" (the subject "Fable") has been developed since 1978. In 1980, the Tula Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) and the Special Design Bureau of the KMZ jointly proposed a new powerful 2K23 armament complex for this machine, combining a 30mm automatic 2A72 gun and a 100mm cannon launcher 2A70. Tests of the prototype BMP "Object 688M" with this complex of weapons began in 1982, and since 1985, state and military tests of this machine, which received the designation of BMP-3, were conducted. In May 1987, BMP-3 was officially adopted. Since the end of 1987, KMZ has started serial production of BMP-3 in parallel with BMP-2, although due to prolonged refinement of the machine it was carried out at a slow pace. By 1994, the Defense Ministry was supplied only 339 serial BMP-3 (some of them were presented in our previous report). Then the production of BMP-3 for the Russian Army resumed in 2004, and it is still under way. In addition, BMP-3 is actively exported.

    Our blog was able to see firsthand the production of this remarkable machine, the production of which is directed to the strength of almost 6000 workers of CMP. We are not lazy and thank the press service of KKU Concern Tractor Plants, the KMZ team and the Special Machine-Building Design Bureau.

    Current activity of JSC "Special Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering"

    In view of the failure of the BMP-1 armament complex, based on the low-power 73mm 2A28 Thunder gun, in 1972, work began on the creation of a new infantry fighting vehicle with new weapons. As competing options, machines armed with a 30-mm automatic cannon 2A42 and a 73-mm long-barreled gun Zarnitsa were considered, and SKB KMZ and OKB ChTZ were presented versions of both types of cars. As a result, a version of SKB KMZ with a 30-mm gun was selected (Object 675). In 1978, this machine passed military tests, and then in April 1980 it was put into serial production at the CMP under the designation BMP-2.

    We have already told about the history of the BMP-3 that replaced it, so let's see what KSBM is doing at the moment.


    Developed by the JSC "Special Machine Building Design Bureau" (SKBM, Kurgan), a prospective infantry fighting vehicle "Dragoon", which is the further development of BMP-3. In the BMP reconfiguration was carried out, the engine was placed in front, which made it possible to make a free access to the stern



    One of the first prototypes of an armored personnel carrier BTR-MDM, whose range is 20000km


    The combat vehicle BMD-4M with combat compartment from BMP-3 instead of "Bakhchi", also called BMD-4M2. In the fighting compartment there was an additional sight-device guidance commander (PPN-K)


    Another promising subject for the extension of the BMP-3 life cycle is the BT-3F armored personnel carrier. It was originally developed in the interests of Indonesia, which seeks to replace its obsolete armored personnel carriers BTR-50P. The customer is ready to take several hundred cars. Also the interest to BT-3F is shown by the Russian Defense Ministry.


    The option of upgrading the BMP-3 within the framework of the R & D framework "Carcas-2" - emphasis is in favor of increasing the security (c) of bmpd


    Another version of the upgraded BMP-3 with a digital fire control system
