    Russian 201st military base in Tajikistan is reinforced with BMP-2M infantry fighting vehicles

    Against the background of the current situation in Afghanistan, despite all the promises of the Taliban (the movement is prohibited in Russia), the Russian Ministry of Defense decided to strengthen the 201st military base in Tajikistan. According to the commander of the Central Military District, Colonel-General Alexander Lapin, the base's motorized riflemen will receive a batch of BMP-2M.

    As part of the reinforcement, as well as to replace the already obsolete models of equipment, motorized rifle units of the military base will be armed with 17 BMP-2M infantry fighting vehicles. The equipment will be delivered to Tajikistan by military transport aircraft by the end of July. It is planned that the new infantry fighting vehicles will significantly increase the combat capabilities of the Russian military base.

    BMP-2 is one of the most massive infantry fighting vehicles. It was put into service in 1980 and produced until 1990. Currently, the Russian army is in service with more than 5 thousand BMP-2.

    In the course of modernization to the level of BMP-2M, the vehicles receive the latest devices for "panoramic" aiming and observation, which have the functionality of night vision, and a new radio station is installed. The vehicle is equipped with a two-seat combat module "Berezhok", which is a classic BMP-2 turret, but with new weapons.

    The BMP-2M is armed with Kornet anti-tank guided missiles, a 30-mm automatic cannon, a 7.62-mm machine gun and an AG-30M 30-mm automatic grenade launcher with an independent vertical guidance drive and a 300 grenade feed magazine.

    NOTE: there were also reports last year that some BMP-2M's had been deployed here. Perhaps this will complete a battalion??

    Batch of upgraded BMP-2M entered service with the motorized rifle brigade of the Western Military District. 

    A batch of upgraded BMP-2M infantry fighting vehicles with the Berezhok combat module entered service with the motorized rifle brigade of the Western Military District. This is reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.

    According to the report, the motorized infantry units stationed in the Leningrad region received 10 upgraded BMP-2M vehicles. It is noted that the equipment was delivered as part of the state defense order. The press service of the Western Military District explained that by the end of the year, the district will be replenished with another 30 BMP-2M, but they did not specify in which parts they will be delivered.

    The BMP-2 is the most massive infantry fighting vehicle adopted by the Soviet and Russian armies. Currently, BMP-2ms are being delivered under a contract signed last year to upgrade 124 BMP-2s to the BMP-2M level, and the contract is due to be completed by the end of 2022.

    By BMP2M they mean the one with 4 kornets, not the version with 2 ataka launchers.
