    The ZBD-97/04 family is known (well, open secret) to have been designed for China by Kurganmash, and the fighting module was obviously Baxcha.

    An early Kurganets if you will.

    This new thing looks like a further development.

    Yes, I've heard of that but I thought it was just a rumor. BTW why do you think there's so much secrecy between Russia and China in military technical cooperation? Is it because they don't want to offend India?

    PLZ-05A is essentially what a Kurganets 120mm gun mortar system may look like:

    yeah, and the back door is really thin. Also the turret is too massive, the russkies would prolly use an unmanned turret to shave off a ton or two of metal and put that in the hull.

    Keep in mind that is a mortar carrier and is for export.

    Domestic models might have advanced ceramic inserts and unmanned external guns but don't expect a fundamentally different vehicle... the IFV/APC will likely have a powered ramp rear door that is both larger and thicker...

    Some clues about Boomerang and Kurganets:

    - Ceramic armour
    - Advanced mine protection
    - May be even active defences and ERA (don't know for sure)

    As I know it was the MoD's demands: maximum level of protection

    Chiniese vehicles seems like older BMP with different (larger) hulls and some tweaks like better chassis may be or modern sights.

    I want to hear news on the ARMATA already I hate how all the cool stuff start coming after I leave service  paratrooper  maybe I just might go back  Very Happy  how much "KURGANETS" will be made and when will they start production. In my service we were stuck with BMD-2s and rarely BMD-3s they all ways gave us the old stuff I guess they wanted us to finally finish their service life in fact one officer told us as a joke (or perhaps he meant it) to start crashing all the vehicles so we can order some new ones, VDV has great equipment but we have some stuff that we need to change really fast.

    The BMDs are scary to sit in knowing a guy with a armor piercing sniper or machine gun will tear us apart sitting on top is way better I feel bad that the army has to resort to sitting on top of APC's and IFV's. I know this is not related to anything here but in 2008 we were stationed on high alert I was so excited to go to Georgia maybe get a chance to kill some NATO scum bags or at least wanna be NATO scum bags but all my dreams were crushed.  I am currently in reserve and I am waiting to be called to Ukraine and teach those ****ers a lesson.  I just wanted to share this here because I am bored and want to hear new stuff about equipment.

    You should wait 'till 2015. But VDV already get their BMD-4M (for testing right now). And you should sign a contract if you want to go to Ukraine. I don't think it will be a matter for mobilisation.
    Btw didn't you serve at Pskov?

    asf I served in Tula during my first years 2008-2009 even during training time but then I got transfered to Pskov during 2010-2012 I was a contract soldier but I did one year for my conscription term (you know how it works) why did you ask? but I will tell you something Tula was better then Pskov in terms of base wise. (I edited this for a more detailed version btw plus a typo)

    GarryB we can always give it to you and say it was stolen by bandits  pwnd but I'm sure my unit got reequipped with modernized vehicles I miss my unit and I think I might sign another contract if that is possible this time hopefully I can stay in Tula I hear they made that place heaven now with new equipment and vehicles. Will the Kurganets be airlift-able?

    Depends on a plane) If serious, do you think about a BMP as an airlifted vehicle? It can be transported by transport aviation, but it's a mistery if it supposed to fit VDV demands. I doubt VDV will get them

    Well, nobody knows, even Shamanov, that's why he managed to order BMD-4M. I think air-assault divisions (DShD) could use them if they use BMPs now


    The remaining parts of this story may follow.

    It's very interesting. I wait for more.

    Russia to Test New Mobile Communications System during Vostok-2014 Exercise

    VLADIVOSTOK, June 19 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian military is to test its new mobile communications system, which is superior to its foreign alternatives, during the Vostok-2014 strategic exercise in Russia’s Eastern Military District, the Defense Ministry announced Thursday.

    “In the course of the Vostok-2014 strategic exercise, which will be conducted in September of this year in the Eastern Military District, communications specialists will test the newest communications control system through a Tiger light-armored vehicle. The new system is able to provide all types of communications, including radio, satellite, wire and relay. It’s really a mini communications hub, superior to alternatives used in foreign armies,” stated the ministry.

    In 2014, the Eastern Military District will receive 140 items of new-generation communications equipment, including medium-range radios, command and staff vehicles, and tropospheric and satellite communications stations. This year, the district has already received medium-range digital radios and ten comprehensive communications units.

    By the end of the year, the Russian Armed Forces is to engage in more than 300 tactical exercises, with Vostok-2014 being the largest. The Defense Ministry stated the exercise would emphasize the coordinated strategy and tactical cooperation of units involved in military missions. All branches of Russia's Armed Forces will take part and there will be no detailed scenario developed in advance.

    Rounds for T-62MA2 Tank

    Post  Morpheus Eberhardt on Sat Jun 28, 2014 8:09 am

    Rounds for T-62MA2 Tank

    No 6 and No 9 show the gun-launched surface-to-air missile 9M395T, Berkut.

    No 3 depicting Titan is interesting too.

    No 4 and No 8 shows a guided round.

    This 9M395T gun launched SAM is very interesting and could improve capabilities of BMP-3 and BMD-4 vehicles, specially as they have higher elevation of gun than tank and with that missile is more useful. I don't know, what type of guidance this missile will have, laser guidance or IR, but anyway they have to improve FCS, that they could use this missile anytime in full distance. With today BMP-3 FCS, they could be used only in daytime.

    Can tell by the shell cases those are T-62 115mm rounds, not 125mm rounds which are two piece.

    Also I would say just by looking at it 5 is Bastion and therefore 9 is both Titan and Bastion outside the shell case (ie fired... in flight).

    Number 4 and 8 are not guided... they look like standard HEAT rounds.

    Interesting also that Berkut and Bastion are 100mm calibre weapons suggesting they were designed to be compatible with 100mm guns too.
