    Hm, intersting tidbit.

    BMP-3 entered service with an adjustable clearance system- though it was quickly blocked off and subsequent vehicles did not have the system at all.

    Another interesting tidbit... the early model BMP-3s were actually considered as dual Army and VDV vehicles... some early BMP-3s were shown on parade with hinges on their upper hull corners. these hinges were commonly used to attach the large parachute structures to BMD type vehicles so it was quite strange to see them on a BMP...

    UIMC has delivered the first set of Borisoglebsk-2 electronic warfare systems
    20 Apr 2015

    Russian armed forces stationed from Kaliningrad to Blagoveshchensk have received the latest technology

    ...

    The system utilizes innovative technical solutions for building radio reconnaissance and automated control systems. It uses broadband covert signals for noise immunity and high-speed data transfer. The range and frequency of suppression has more than doubled, and the speed of detection has increased more than 100 times. Improved software enables easy adaptation between various locations.

    “For the first time, the system will combine the work of all units in one algorithm for both the radio intelligence and jamming modes. This will help detect enemy’s most important electronic warfare objects so that all efforts can be focused there,” said Mikhail Artemov.

    The above image is a different project; I should do a bit of search to find its designation.

    However, Ob''ekt 477A is shown the following.

    Looks like a more radical and modern version of the old French Foch.... Interesting to say the very least.

    I love that recon-Tigr, such vehicles need to be fast, small, and yet hold all the necessary equipment. Looks like it fits the bill.

    Nothing to do with Russia.

    That is a wild artist guess @ a certain Kharkov project.

    My wording was, of course, intentional.

    I am also aware that some "consider" Kharkov as not being part of Russia due to the status foisted upon that city after the "1917" coup d'etat.

    Also to call a project Ukrainian is like saying Vostok-1 was a Kazakhstani undertaking.



    That is a wild artist guess @ a certain Kharkov project.


    What do you then think the "artist's impression" in the "An artist's impression of an earlier Russian tank project From Otvaga:" is for?


    More importantly, you, of course, don't know about the status of that project.

    The tigr has a lot of ideas, but the Russians need to get along with ergonomy, because it just looks like an afterthought on the vehicle. But hey, pimp my Tigr.

    I don't think, the vehicle in the top picture is represented in the chart showing the variants. The one that you have circled is Leer-2. The nice thing about the following image of Leer-2 is that the picture shows the system during work.

    Deputy chairman of the board of MIC Oleg Bochkarev reported a number of projects in the segment of armored vehicles

    TSAMTO, April 28. Deputy Chairman of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission (MIC) Oleg Bochkarev the radio station "Echo of Moscow" on April 27 announced a number of projects in the segment of armored vehicles.

    The following main points are given O.Bochkareva performances based on the agency "RIA Novosti".

    State tests of armored vehicles on the platform "Armata"


    State tests of armored vehicles on the platform "Armata" will be held in various climatic conditions, including in the Arctic, said O.Bochkarev.

    According to him, "legally" the development of this machine is completed in mid-2016. State tests will be held in 2016. Today is the preliminary stage of testing, parallel passes experimental-industrial stage.

    "Machines that we will see at the Victory Parade - this is a technique that will at the end of the year in the armed forces: it is necessary to test it in the Arctic and in hot climates, where the sands, where shaky ground, wetlands and so forth," - O.Bochkarev said.

    The first batch of equipment "Armata" will be held at the Parade, and will continue to be "a fairly good number of vehicles close to a hundred," - he said.

    Export prospects


    The newest armored platforms "Armata", "Kurganets" and "Boomerang" in the next 5-6 years will not export, said O.Bochkarev.

    "Definitely, such machines are sold abroad are not. We always sell abroad machines with more understated performance - the so-called export appearance, "- said O.Bochkarev.

    BMP "Kurganets-25"


    Serial production of the new generation of BMP "Kurganets-25" is scheduled to begin in the 2019-2020 years, said O.Bochkarev.

    "State contracts have already been signed with the Ministry of Defence of our manufacturers. The first part of the pilot batch "Kurgan" will be presented at this year's May 9 Victory Day parade in Moscow; In addition, these machines have already been contracted for three years in advance. That is, from 2016 to 100 units "Kurgan" go to different regions for testing, testing, and then after processing mass production will begin in the 2019-2020 biennium. "- Said O.Bochkarev.

    Prospective armored fighting compartment

    Russia's Defense Ministry has set a target to develop long-term solutions to combat armored divisions "Kurganets" and "Boomerang", their experience in 4 years, said O.Bochkarev.

    "Today, the military has a new task, and the industry started manufacturing some other military branches, there will be a different caliber from the main armament, but the crew compartment, we begin to experience about four years - this upgrade, various options, and single base" - O.Bochkarev said.

    Tests armored "Typhoon-U"

    O.Bochkarev commented on state tests wheeled armored vehicles "Typhoon-U", noting that the industry very quickly eliminates identified during the testing problem.

    "Typhoon-U" in the army there, they pass the tests and tests in different climatic conditions on driving range, this machine has already gained a lot of different comments, but the industry quickly removes them, and we now have these machines produce almost petty series "- said O.Bochkarev.

    Other programs

    O.Bochkarev reported that the Defense Ministry has decided on the adoption of the Russian Army of two models of machines - AK-12 and AEK-971.

    He explained that both models have their own niche and perspective (depending on specialization relevant units).

    Gorets-O
    The Gorets-O, 'Mountaineer' in English, is a new engineering vehicle family being developed for the Russian Army featuring amphibious capability, machine guns, electronic countermeasures (ECM) and GLONASS-based navigation system.

    The Gorets tracked vehicles will be able to operate for at least three hours with temperatures ranging from -40- to +40-degree Celsius. The vehicle's maximum range is 600 kilometers without refueling.

    The primary use of the new engineering vehicles is to move earth on the battlefield under hostile fire. It will be deployed in advance of T-14 and T-15 heavy armored vehicles breaching obstacles such as stones and tree entanglements as well as bridging ditches and ploughing minefields. The Gorets-O vehicles will be equipped with ditching scoop and backhoe, a hydraulic hammer, winches and a crane. The crew compartment accommodates a commander and a driver while the engineering compartment may seat at least two combat engineers.

    The Russian Army expects to carry out the first fields tests of the next-generation engineering vehicles in 2017. The Gorets development is estimated at 350 million Rubles. The Gorets-O vehicles are the replacement for the Soviet-era IMR-2 and IMR-3 breaching vehicles as well as the BAT-M and BAT-2 bulldozers.

    I can't understand why tracked fire trucks (with the bulldozer attachment) aren't more popular in the world. They could be very useful in forest fire areas that are rural.

    Gorets-O
    The Gorets-O, 'Mountaineer' in English, is a new engineering vehicle family being developed for the Russian Army featuring amphibious capability, machine guns, electronic countermeasures (ECM) and GLONASS-based navigation system.

    The Gorets tracked vehicles will be able to operate for at least three hours with temperatures ranging from -40- to +40-degree Celsius. The vehicle's maximum range is 600 kilometers without refueling.

    The primary use of the new engineering vehicles is to move earth on the battlefield under hostile fire. It will be deployed in advance of T-14 and T-15 heavy armored vehicles breaching obstacles such as stones and tree entanglements as well as bridging ditches and ploughing minefields. The Gorets-O vehicles will be equipped with ditching scoop and backhoe, a hydraulic hammer, winches and a crane. The crew compartment accommodates a commander and a driver while the engineering compartment may seat at least two combat engineers.

    The Russian Army expects to carry out the first fields tests of the next-generation engineering vehicles in 2017. The Gorets development is estimated at 350 million Rubles. The Gorets-O vehicles are the replacement for the Soviet-era IMR-2 and IMR-3 breaching vehicles as well as the BAT-M and BAT-2 bulldozers.

    I can't understand why tracked fire trucks (with the bulldozer attachment) aren't more popular in the world. They could be very useful in forest fire areas that are rural.

    They are too sophisticated and expensive.

    In the US, they use HEMTT based fire trucks for certain tasks. They're popular on airports. Those are fairly over the top without being tracked.
