Bulgaria delivered Iraq another batch of BMP-1

52
Ten BMP-1s arrived in Iraq from Bulgaria. In December 2015, Bulgaria delivered the Iraqi Ministry of Defense 12 BMP-1 and several tanks T-72, reports bmpd with reference to the Iraqi media.




The author recalls that “Bulgaria, in agreement with Russia, in 1996, bought 100 T-72A and 100 tanks of BMP-1P units of the former Soviet army, which were in storage in the Republic of Bulgaria from the 1980s, in XNUMX”.

It is noted that Iraq in recent years, actively buying military equipment of Soviet times in Eastern Europe. In 2005, the Iraqi military received a gift from Greece 100 BMP-1 (previously in service with the army of the GDR). In 2007, the same amount of BMP-1 was purchased in Ukraine.



And in 2014, Iraq signed a contract with the Czech company Excalibur Army for the purchase of X-NUMX-T-50-72 from the presence of the Czech Armed Forces and 1-BMP-250 from the presence of the Swedish army (previously in the GDR army). It is known that the first 1 machines (BMP) arrived in Iraq last year.

On what conditions did Bulgaria supply 10-ti armored vehicles, is not specified.

        Did you just notice that?
        For example, I also saw the fact that the BMP-1 (one) was in service with Sweden and Greece, which received this equipment from the GDR.
        that is, even the old BMP-1s were evaluated by NATO and Scandinavian countries.

          The Greeks did not appreciate - they would have the problem of using against us. Against the Turks and were not going to.
          I don’t remember, after 73, it seems, we had an agreement with them on the evacuation of the population in our territory in the event of a war with Turkey. It makes no difference that NATO, and we are VD. A war was supposed between them, and the population, not reaching Athena a little, still considers Bulgarian to be its language, along with Greek.
          In short, in the event of a VD war against NATO, the Greeks really would not have fought. There would be a mess between us and them, but this is no longer militarily, and that means a separate conversation.
          Here are the Swedes stocked up, yes. They smelled it - felt it, pulled out even more long muzzles, and did not say anything about mtlb. They don’t have that. A caterpillar truck by civil standards - 50 before the first overhaul, and at 000 km / h on the highway when scared. So they pushed counter-advertising.

            The dispute between Greece and Bulgaria for joint humanitarian and military actions, the case of a war between Turkey and Turkey was concluded after 1974. The reason was the Kirpsky conflict. At the same time, beloved and praised by all Russians Yugoslavia, the command of the internal affairs department was examined as a country a potential enemy in the event of a local or world conflict. One third of the Soviet troops in Hungary, had to act in the Yugoslav direction in the event of Yugoslavia withdrawing from its non-neutral status. Their task included the capture of Belgrade and the blocking of the Yugoslav Armed Forces at the deployment bases with the subsequent withdrawal of Soviet troops on the Adriatic Sea. Bulgaria, as a member of the police department, kept the 3 army constantly on alert. 1-army in the Yugoslav direction, 2-th in Greek and 3-th most efficient in the Turkish direction.

            "Hummers" serve in 30 armies of the world, licenses for their production were bought by firms in Portugal and Switzerland. Maybe he's not that fucking?
            The main weapon of destruction of the Hammer in Iraq, and the BMP-1 in Afghanistan, was a simple Soviet RPG-7. Why choose the old Soviet - because it is much cheaper!
            BMP-1 was a breakthrough in the 70s, but now alas.

        This is just nonsense! Nobody takes off anything from himself. The entire Bulgarian Army for 2016 is 25-30 thousand people. The army is contractual, there is no call for a long time. Why do they need so many Soviet junk such as BPM-1. In fact, Bulgaria as a NATO member has switched to their standards. Why not cut some money from Iraq? Why Iraq buys all THIS: probably the price is "penny" and there is no need to retrain specialists, because they know the Soviet BMP 1 and T-72 very well.

        Don't be naked, don't worry. They live hard, the industry was also destroyed and bought up by the West in the 90s, like ours. They did not find a Bulgarian "Putin" -not lucky. Prime Minister Boyko Borisov is a typical protege of the West, and all the shit is with the South Stream, with the nuclear art. in Belene began under him. Last Sunday there were presidential elections - the winner was a socialist, former Air Force general Radev, and what will happen next, God only knows.

          Thank you comrade Captain 92!
          In general, it is. And there are nuances.
          I did not suspect that we have them. The years were troubled - to see far-fetched debts so leveled. Then they broke a lot of firewood.
          But the cars themselves are worthless. The vertical angle of the gun’s aiming is insufficient, and that’s all over. The Balkan theater is mountainous, the gorges are narrow, already Afghan. The firing angles are needed closer to anti-aircraft, battle on the plain - exotics. In general, I have little idea of ​​the specific actions of drugs on such a terrain. I read books, went through teachings, but somehow for show. So BMP-1 - the truth is we do not need.
          We had few of them, in the late 70s, in the 9th tank brigade. Mekhvody buzzed from the steering wheel - they didn’t crutches a motolyga :) We were sad from preparing for the ford, our mtlb plopped down in the ponds on the move. Platoon commanders were furious from the corners of the shelling.
          So they quickly concocted their BMP-23 "Shipka" and the self-propelled mortar "Tundzha". Factory, and at the same time military tests took place in 81 - 82, no longer in the palace capital of the 9th, but in the 5th, such as the factory TBR, in Kazanlak. What's under Shipki.
          Then a lot of things were developed, but the troops were saturated with them.
          Now everyone does it.

          Indeed, in Bulgarian conditions / high-altitude / BMP-1 from its small angles of inclination of the gun aiming turned out to be problematic. Attempts were made to modernize these machines but then refused. Back in the 80s, the development and production of the Bulgarian BMP-23 began, which responds much better to the Bulgarian natural conditions, as mentioned by the "Alien". good

    Frankly speaking, it’s purple to me what and where Iraq bought, but in this case it would not hurt ours to offer some kind of modernization based on a 30 mm cannon and taking into account local "warriors" with extended ammunition, if only the barrel resource would withstand. For me, an order for 100 combat models is a large order. So, I would like to see real movements of Rosoboronexport on this topic !!!

    Do not confuse power with the people. The older generation is still for Russia. And power has been assigned. Historians operate on the events of the 1 Balkan war, according to which the Russian Empire sided with the Serbs and Greeks, against the Bulgarians. And the Germans supported them in the promise to return the disputed territories. And the story started not because of the mainstream. And so there is a monument to Alexander 2 and the great commander Skobelev. The Bulgarians remember the good and the bad.
    It is not necessary to blame the peoples, especially since they themselves are no less guilty.
