    Marine Assault vehicle, platform BMMP:



    A hybrid solution if I ever seen one, 100/30 combo armament like a BMP-3/BMD-4, side applique armor like a Kurganetz-25, wheels most likely derived from Boomerang-25, 1250 hp gas turbine engine derived from the T-80U family, plus a transformable body to reduce drag in the water. It'll have a 3-man crew, and hold 10 paratroopers, have top speeds on land up to 55 km/h, and 37 km/h in the water, landing ships will be able to deploy soldiers 40-60 km's away from coasts:

    Wheeled vehicles are cheaper to operate and to buy than vehicles with tracks, and while tracked vehicles can operate over more varied terrain wheeled vehicles can be quite comparable and offer much better mine resistance in the sense that a small mine that destroys one wheel will not immobilise the vehicle yet that same mine would sever a track and fully immobilise a tracked vehicle.

    If you are talking about two vehicles in the same weight class (25 tons), where one is tracked and one is wheeled then the wheeled vehicle will have less internal capacity because the wheel arches take up more internal space, but the greater mobility potential on roads and much lower operating costs and higher road speeds make wheeled vehicles very attractive... assuming protection and firepower are similar it is cheaper and easier to go for the wheeled vehicle.

    In the past the choice has been between the BTR and the BMP but in that case the BTR has rather less armour and rather less fire power, yet the navy still chose the BTR often because of reduced costs and acceptable mobility.

    I remember a US expert given the chance to drive around a BTR-60 and he described it as being the ultimate RV (recreation vehicle).

    8 wheel drive plus the ability to change the tire pressure to improve traction on soft ground make it a very capable off roader, but there are conditions where even it will get stuck... but then even tracked vehicles get stuck from time to time...

    Normally I would agree with you however considering how it's set to be apart of the naval assets, it's likely apart of the naval logistics chain with the possibility of sharing parts and spares in a military branch where gas turbines are more prevalent.

    So ultimately my opinion on the use of gas turbines within ground vehicles:

    a) For use within vehicles used only for ground forces (such as the T-80U) it's a terrible idea.

    b) For use within the Naval Infantry, with the potential to share logistics with gas turbines in the naval logistics chain. It's an interesting idea, and if it proves to be the case then it could potentially be a great idea (if done correctly).

    Turbine engines in general are horrible idea for any "ground" vehicle. Even if operated only by navy, that means that you will have to supply bunch of spares only to the navy...while you will supply everyone else with diesels and spares... Why would you do that, there is nothing in terms of performance that would justify that. Navy also does not operate so small gas turbines to justify it that way, which makes them just a burden on the logistics.

    Our P40 radar turbines were such pain in the ass...

    T-80's performed horribly with gas turbines in really hard terrain they performed like 80km and already dried up half the tank. Gas turbines are useless in that regard and shouldn't go on anything that needs to be powered by shaft turbine for ground use.

    It is planned to create a Marine Corps combat vehicle (ΒMMP)

    As Sergey Mosienko, reported on his website in 2018-2025, planned for adoption in Russia, it is planned to develop a family of machines based on the Navy infantry fighting vehicle (BMMF) of the Russian Navy. The BMPP is designed for delivery by sea of ​​the Marine Corps division to the meteorological unit of the assigned combat mission, destruction of armored vehicles and manpower of the enemy, support by landing fire at all stages of the combat mission.

    The ΒMMP chassis should be unified and ensure the creation of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missile systems, self-propelled guns and mortars, command and staff, combat reconnaissance vehicles (our topic), repair and evacuation, engineering and ambulances on its base.

    One of the determining factors for the emergence of a promising combat vehicle of the Marine Corps is the emergence of a new theater of military operations: the Republic of Crimea and the coast of the Krasnodar Territory.
    Marine infantry should have the strength and means, which provide not only delivery, but also support by landing fire.

    Note bmpd. As Albert Bakov, First Vice President and First Deputy General Director of LLC "Corporate Management Company" Concern "Tractor Plants" reported in his interview to the magazine "Export of Arms" in late 2015, the development of military equipment for the Marine Corps of the Russian Navy will be carried out by the Design Bureau LLC Volgograd machine-building company Volgograd Tractor Plant (VMK VGTZ). He noted that the tactical and technical requirements of the Marine Corps are specific and differ greatly from the characteristics developed by the Kurgan designers of the machines.

    According to him, "BMP, like BMD-4M, can force water obstacles without training and land on the seacoast from landing ships, which is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the Marines." The Marines want to get a car that must walk on the water, as a hydrofoil boat, while maintaining the BMP's characteristics for combat operations on the shore. "

    so it is planned a unified platform for naval infantry vehicles

    Seems to be a Boomerang for the navy but why the requirement for so much HP?

    The standard engine for the Kurganets and Boomerang is in the 500+HP range which should be plenty for 25 ton class vehicles most of the time... unless it is also a hovercraft...

    Baumanka" creates a planing BMP for an over-landing
    25 April 2017 at 22:12 Theme: Industry

    Scientific and Production Center "Special Engineering" (SPC SM) MSTU. Since 2013, Baumanka has been building a combat vehicle for the Marine Corps (BMMP). For some time the work was carried out within the framework of the state defense order, but the customer stopped them. Now the development of a gliding machine for over-landing is proceeding proactively, Chief Designer Sergey Popov told the Central Naval Portal.

    According to Sergei Popov, the development of a special marine landing vehicle was conducted by Baumanka in the 1980s. Later, various variants of the BMMP were studied-wheeled, tracked, four-tracked and even auger-rotor. One of the options is a planing machine with gas turbine engine GTD-1250, created for the T-80 tank.

    In 2013, the command of coastal troops of the Russian Navy initiated the development of infantry infantry fighting vehicles. Corresponding research was included in the state defense order for 2013. Competition for the "Research on the creation of a prospective combat vehicle for Marine Corps units of the Navy (BMMP)" won by the MSTU Baumanka. "But soon after the state contract was concluded, the work on this research work was stopped by the customer," says Sergei Popov, without explaining the reasons for the stop. Development, however, continued in an initiative, " the chief designer added.

    One of the difficulties encountered by the developers was the amphibiousness of the BMP. On the water the machine should become a speedboat, which can quickly overcome the distance necessary for over-landing, and withstand a wave height of at least 1.5 meters. On land, (BMMP) is a full-fledged conveyor for infantry. At least the first part of the task "Baumanka" worked: in December 2014 LLC "Center for Technical Cooperation" at the Baumanka Moscow State Technical University filed an application for a patent for a seafaring high-speed amphibian with a variable gliding surface.The patent was published in March 2016, one of its authors - Sergei Popov.

    The machine is equipped with two side flaps along the sides of the hull, at the ends of which there are controlled hydrodynamic surfaces. Shields and surfaces can change their position, reducing the hydrodynamic resistance and controlling the difference and roll. In this way, the BMMP goes to the glide path at a lower power requirement.

    In 2015, the International Naval Show showed a remote-controlled scale model of the machine, which corresponds to one of the early variants of the technical solution for gliding BMP. On the sides of the layout you can see the flaps mentioned in the patent. As the source in the Navy told the Central Naval Portal, the commander of coastal troops Lieutenant-General Alexander Kolpachenko "is well-versed in the project and earlier contributed to its development." In the photo with IMMS-2015, the chief designer of the SPC SM Sergei Popov tells Lieutenant-General Kolpachenko about the features of the TMMF.

    It is not yet known what kind of amphibious ship the Marines will use. Admiral Igor Khmelnov (in 1995-1996, commander of the Pacific Fleet) told the correspondent of the Central Military Medical Academy that the large amphibious ships that the fleet has today are not very suitable for over-landing. "This is an American concept that was created back in the 1970s," he added. By 2015, the USA developed the EFV (Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle) - a 34-ton caterpillar gliding armored personnel carrier. Its speed on the water - up to 46 km / h, for gliding the machine uses a similar to the BMMP.
