    Modernization doubled the combat capabilities of the BTR-80

    Without prejudice to the mobility of staff BTR modernization enhances its combat capabilities by 1.5-2 times by increasing the efficiency of weapons, said company CEO George Zakamenny.

    MOSCOW, July 15 - RIA Novosti. Russian Defense Ministry is interested in acquiring the modernized CRI "Petrel" BTR-80 - BTR-80A, which is the combat capabilities of the previous version have doubled, he said in an interview with RIA Novosti CEO of the company Georgy Zakamenny.

    For the first time the BTR-80A has been shown at the forum "Army-2015", which was held in June in Kubinka near Moscow.

    "The project of modernization of armored personnel carriers interested in not only our foreign partners, but also the leadership of the Defense Ministry ... Without prejudice to the mobility of staff BTR modernization enhances its combat capabilities by 1.5-2 times by increasing the effectiveness of weapons", - he told the agency.

    In particular, the BTR-80A was a remote-controlled machine-gun caliber 14.5 mm module with a high accuracy of fire and increased ammunition, vsesutochnostyu and all-weather combat use, including the move and afloat.

    In addition, the upgraded combat vehicle has a high protection against damaging factors opponent by equipping protivokumulyativnymi screens, panels antioskolochnymi mine action and damping mats.

    "We also raised the command control BTR-80 - equipping autonomous navigation system, a" closed "communication and so on. The presented at the exhibition modernization package can be implemented not only in the repair of armored personnel carriers, and infantry fighting vehicles, including maintenance of customer databases "- he added.

    CRI "Petrel" Russia is the parent company for the production of artillery weapons in the interests of Army and Navy. The company is part of the machinery division of the corporation "Uralvagonzavod".

    Just too weird. They are already upgrading BTR-80 to BTR-82 standard, so of what possible use could this upgrade be? Not to mention that the BTR-80A isn't new at all - it has been around for years now. Or is this for export?

    I dont see you mentioned it before (i might be wrong) but here is small article regarding BTR82A i found few days ago:

    "Just days after the sighting of several BTR-80 variants among other military equipment bound for Syria onboard the Russian Navy ship Nikolay Filchenkov, an Alligator-class landing ship of Russia's Black Sea Fleet, more advanced Russian-made weaponry has apparently found its way to Syria, with the sighting of BTR-82s being the latests in a series of ill-reported weapon deliveries to the war torn country. Footage of the Lattakia offensive shows the presence of at least one BTR-82A infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) taking part in the offensive aimed at recapturing previously lost territory in North-Eastern Lattakia. The offensive is conducted jointly by the National Defence Force (NDF), Syrian Arab Army (SyAA), and the Republican Guard, the latter of which only recently deployed to the Syrian Coast in such large numbers. Along with its T-72s, BMP-2s and 152mm 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled howitzers, the Republican Guard arrived here in mid June 2015. It can be expected that the delivery of BTR-82s to Syria occured at around the same time. The arrival of the Republican Guard greatly boosted the firepower of the National Defence Force, tasked with defending the region and mostly armed with ageing weaponry that was previously stored. In fact, the NDF was even forced to use 100mm KS-19 anti-aircraft guns as conventional artillery during previous offensives.

    Syria was known to have received a limited number of BTR-80s from Russia in late 2013 or early 2014 under the chemical weapons removal deal, although none of the vehicles tasked with transporting and defending the chemical weapons were ever returned to Russia. At least two different versions of BTR-80s were previously sighted in Syria, with several BTR-80s of an unknown variant spotted onboard the Nikolay Filchenkov. The previously unknown delivery of BTR-82s thus makes up either the third or fourth BTR-80 variant to have entered Syrian service. The camouflaged BTR-82A comes with the tacitcal number ''111''. This opposed to the identification system seen on Syrian military vehicles already in service for longer periods of time. The BTR-80s delivered under the chemical weapons deal were all painted olive drab without any tactical markings. Delieveries of military equipment to Syria are undertaken by Russian Navy landing ships, sailing from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean on a regular basis. While opposed to the Assad regime, almost all of the military equipment delivered to the regime passes right through Turkey's largest city. Just 3 days ago, on 20 August, landing ship Nikolay Filchenkov passed through Istanbul carrying trucks and armoured vehicles on its deck. The presence of the vehicles on deck was notable, as equipment was previously only carried in the cargo bay and thus out of sight when passing the Bosphorus. This likely means that the batch of vehicles being sent to Syria under this deal was so big that it simply didn't fit in the cargo bay alone! The long-barrelled 2A72 30 mm autocannon easily distinguishes the BTR-82A from the standard BTR-80 armed with 14.5 mm KPVT heavy machine gun. The differences with BTR-80A, an older model with the same 2A72 cannon are of a more subtle nature.

    The main difference is the presence of the TKN-4GA-02 night-vision device on top of the BTR-82's turret, replacing the BTR-80's TPN-3 night-vision device. A second identification point is the different exhaust, which can also be seen below. The recent delivery of BTR-82s to Syria will not have any significant impact on the day-to-day operations on the battlefields of Syria. While fairly capable for a wheeled IFV, the BTR-82A is only protected against small arms fire and thus anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) such as the TOW will have no problems pentrating its paper-thin armour. The delivery mainly serves as a reminder of Russia's commitment to support the Assad regime, meaning deliveries of other vehicles and weapons systems are likely in the future. With the supply of brand-new looking T-72AVs still sporting all explosive reactive armour (ERA) titles appearing infinite, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) remaining capable of supressing rebel groups and flying desperate revenge strikes on recently lost towns in addition to the string of articles of recently delivered Russian weaponry seen below, Russia's commitment to keeping the Assad regime in power continues to be greatly underestimated and might be far larger than anyone previously expected."


    Article is nothing new in terms of BTR82As specifications or anything but it does throw a nice light on its deployment and actual research base for its combat performance. Original article with images you can see on spioenkop.blogspot.com still cant post links so deal with it :S

    BTR-87

    Designed by LLC "Military-Industrial Company", BTR-87 is a deep modernization of the BTR-82A and is distinct from the entire family of the BTR-80 / BTR-82, layout with a front engine compartment (engine is at the front right) and stern location of the troop compartment, aft exit landing. Accordingly, the machine has a completely new hull. The prototype of the BTR-87 has the standard, of the BTR-82A, combat BPPU module with 30-mm 2A72 automatic cannon and a 7.62 mm machine gun PKTM.

    According to known information, MIC developed the BTR-87 on its own initiative and is intended mainly for exports.

    Cheap and modern and with no worse protection than BTR-82A. They should give/sell license to produce them in Novorussia for Novorussian army. They will be no worse than BTR-4 and they could as well equip it with RWS with 12,7 ot 14,5 mm machine gun instead of BPPU turret if they wish.

    As far as BTR-87 goes, it's essentially a cross between a BTR-82 and BTR-90, for whatever that's worth.

    I have in mind those produced in Novorussian factories in case if they will produce them. Russian ones will for sure have better quality of production. It is cheap and modern vehicle and with that very suitable for Novorussian army to get new armored vehicles. Russia would deliver engines, transmissions and turrets, all the rest could be produced in Novorussia. Even Ukraine import engines for their BTRs.

    So they placed the Engine in Front and have rear doors now...Yeah.

    Looks like other guys have done that before (SAUR 12.7/ LAV 25 etc). Cheap conversion of Soviet Era BTR's...

    OK this is improvement but what is an economic reasoning behind this one? export? replacement for secondary units so Boomerang can go to first line ones?

    Off course, it wasn't meant as a slight, just noticing that this is clearly (IMO) an export product.

    Edit: SAUR is a Romanian BTR60/70 butchered in the same sense. It has nothing Western at all. It's a cheap modification of a proven platform for export.

    I suspect this will be export only.

    The trim vane on the front shows it still retains amphibious capacity, but I would expect that amphibious capacity is diminished and the shifting of the engine to the front means more weight needed at the rear to balance the weight of the engine and front armour.

    I suspect the rear position of the turret might compensate a little, but its position wont be very good for the crew in the compartment below.

    A smaller lighter armed remote turret that does not penetrate into the crew compartment would be a much better solution IMHO.

    Off course, it wasn't meant as a slight, just noticing that this is clearly (IMO) an export product.

    Me being sensitive... Modern anti material rifles are not called copies of Soviet PTRS and PTRD anti tank rifles, yet well after they stopped being useful in their intended roles against armour they continued to be used against buildings and vehicles and light fortifications and even aircraft in an anti material role. Initially they were copied in the west as long range sniper rifles but the lack of long range accuracy meant they tended to be recalibred to western 50 cal and used against hard items at much closer range. Then of course there is the IFV, gun launched missiles etc etc copied by the west that does not copy...

    It also seems to have 2 shrouded propellers (pumpjets) replacing the original centrally-located pumpjet.

    To be totally fair, first real AT rifle was German T-Gewehr.

    Fact stays that most produced and used AT rifles were British Boys rifle and USSR PTRS-41/PTRD-41.

    I never said the Soviet anti tank rifles were the first anti tank rifles... they were the first practical effective weapons that were used well after their practical design purpose made them obsolete in the role they were designed for. They continued to be used for a range of other roles and the fact that its ammo continued to be used in a machine gun meant ammo was not a problem for short to medium range use (it was never accurate enough for very long range use in a rifle).

    The first real anti tank rifle was the 8mm Mauser standard rifle where it was found if the projectiles were removed from the cartridge case and reversed that they were less likely to ricochet off the ammo and actually penetrate early light armour.

    "Russian Ministry of Defense shows interest about the BTR-87 armoured personnel carriers, said General Director of “Military-Industrial Company” (VPK) Alexander Krasovitsky.

    The BTR-87 is an amphibious wheeled armored personnel carrier being developed for the potential foreign customers. In a departure with the previous BTR-80 series of vehicles, the engine located in the front instead of the rear. Engine location was a significant drawback of BTR vehicles, where soldiers had to exit the vehicles through cramped side doors, which put them directly in the line of enemy fire.

    According to Russian military experts, the development of BTR-87 is a coherent project. The upgraded vehicle is estimated to be in high demand by financially constraint potential foreign customers, as it has good cost-effectiveness ratio (comparable to the related ratio of BTR-80A/BTR-82A)."

    Defense Ministry will increase the combat power of the BTR-82


    Russia's Defense Ministry plans to increase the combat power of the BTR-82 by installing the 57-mm automatic gun, according to Izvestia , citing a military source.

    "BTR-82 - is a further development of the legendary armored personnel carriers BTR-80, which in the course of modernization, instead of 14.5 mm caliber machine guns were mounted 30-mm 2A72 automatic gun, as well as advanced sighting equipment, digital communication and information transfer, enhanced anti-mine protection. Currently, the Ministry of Defence has bought more than a thousand new combat vehicles, which, apart from motorized infantry brigades and divisions, entered service intelligence units Marine Brigade and units of special forces "- the article says.

    Historian and veteran armored troops Sergei Suvorov:" This is a significant increase in firepower combat vehicle. Caliber 57 mm for today - the most versatile. At the rate of fire of 120 rounds per minute "Baikal" is capable of a minimum of time to hit almost any armored target on the battlefield, including the tank. "

    In addition, he said," the use of uninhabited module frees the internal volume of the combat vehicle that allows you to create a more comfortable conditions for being in the APC soldiers

    "This solution increases the safety of personnel, as all ammunition is outside the habitable volume of APC directly into a combat unit. Upon detonation of ammunition people do not suffer, - said Sergey Suvorov. - At the same AU-220M can also act as a fully automatic stationary firing point. The car can be left in position and control the fire remotely, which also increases the chances of survival of the military. "

    This is pretty cool this must one of best guns mounted on any wheeled APC the destructive power of 57mm is more than capable of making short work of other APC and IFV's. Its pretty crazy to think for a while the 57mm calibre was almost sent to the history books with S-60 and ZSU 57-2 coming out service by Russia and now suddenly theres an interest in it, purely because modern APC and IFV armour is getting better and with many counter measures against anti tank weapons from ERA to soft kill systems, it makes sense to have something this destructive, the 57mm rounds would make short work of any IFV regardless of what counter measures they had as using a cannon like this theirs simply no real counter measure ERA etc becomes useless.
