Turkish ACV-15 infantry fighting vehicles in Syria are not able to protect crews from terrorist fire

The fighting in Syria once again showed that modern ground forces need well-protected armored vehicles. Turkish ACV-15 infantry fighting vehicles are not among them - they cannot protect crews and troops from enemy fire, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


Turkish ACV-15 infantry fighting vehicles in Syria are not able to protect crews from terrorist fire


“This infantry fighting vehicle was created with the help of the United States and other NATO countries. Its weight is more than 14 t. It is armed with a 25-mm cannon, with which the 7,62-mm machine gun is paired. Engine power - 300 HP Maximum speed - 65 km / h. Power reserve - 490 km. Crew - 3 people. Landing - 8 people. Booking bulletproof ", - said in an article by Dmitry Lemeshko.



He notes that the combat use of the machine "demonstrated a vulnerability to ignition, and after a fire, the infantry fighting vehicles cannot be restored."

According to experts, in the near future "we should expect the replacement of the ACV-15 with more modern and, accordingly, protected infantry vehicles," the author writes.

    This is surprising!
    They dug into a foreign country, brought in all kinds of military junk, called it all "Shields of the Euphrates", and well - drool!
    It seems to the Turks that the main thing is to prevent the Kurds from creating autonomy, and therefore they called the Kurds terrorists. In their Turechchina Kurds are muzzled, but they want to have a good relationship with them ... Well, them!

        At the moment, all BMPs, including our BMP 2 and MBP 3, are the mass graves of the infantry. Large-caliber rifles pierce them like a knife into an aluminum can. And RPGs and ATGMs smash them to smithereens.

          so it is so. but all the same BMP 2 and 3 are steel, and this miracle is a reworked "aluminum" M113. It can rather be compared with BMD / BTRD. And the winged metal will in any case give way to the piece of iron.

            This is not entirely true, or rather it is incorrect to call it BMP-4. This is the same BMP-3 only modernized (BMP-3M). The corps remains unchanged, the armament does not change, only the OMS changes. And is this a new model of a combat vehicle? Such a focus only on smartphones passes laughing .
            Regarding your link, the article is nothing (my koment is even more informative smile ) The attached video from RENTV is clearly from the late 90s and early 2000s. A man with a hangover said something to the camera and a new BMP appeared, outright stupidity. Time has passed enough for the information to be more detailed about him (Kurgan has already been debated from all sides, and he was put into trial operation only last year (unless, of course, passed)), and apart from this article there is nothing about him. But there is about BMP-3M

              but that's not the point ... when sold for export, the car can get any name, but it is unlikely to be called the BMP-3M. This is marketing .... And besides it, there is something to offer for sale, based on the same "troika" ....

        Our BMP -2 has what kind of armor protection.
        And they (the BMP-2) as well as the first-generation ACV-15 do not keep the word AT ALL.
        That’s bebor, or buoyancy, or maximum protection.
        If buoyancy is always at 100% it will be vulnerable to any ATGM.
        Exit only KAZ, for lightly armored vehicles.

        And the Turks, pull and pull, them to Al-Bab.

          "If buoyancy is always 100% vulnerable to any ATGM." Well, not really, there is a light but very durable material "armored metallopen" based on titanium or composites, the sample thickness is 25 millimeters, it can withstand the hit of an armor-piercing bullet of 7,62 caliber since the material is porous and it does not sink in water. Tensile strength 3000 MPa.
          From it you can make hinged and spaced out armor in the form of blocks.

            I posted for the ATGM. For the Airborne Forces, the Marines are relevant.
            Israel owns all these technologies but made BTR-T Namer and installed KAZ.

                REALLY, get acceptable protection, both ballistic and mine ...

                modern armored steel (see below) and composite materials and polymers are needed.

                1. Pre-impregnated DURAPREG composite materials for the manufacture of tough individual ballistic protection
                DURAPREG is used in the manufacture of molded parts for tough ballistic protection products, such as army helmets and body armor inserts, in accordance with all levels of NIJ 0101.04 standards
                2.Anti-fragmentation lining of vehicles based on various reinforcing materials and composite materials based on resins, such as:
                PARA-LITE PGR20 - E-glass tourniquet with phenol-aldehyde polymer based system
                PARA-LITE 65340 - E-glass woven fabric with a system based on polyester resins
                PARA-LITE FLEX - para-aramid fabric with a rubber-based polymer system
                PARA-LITE PP is a lightweight multi-layer plastic that allows partial or complete replacement of aramid without weight gain. It can be decorated with various coatings, made in accordance with the wishes of the customer, or coated with an adhesive layer.
                3. Explosion-proof panels for a floor of vehicles.
                These multilayer structures consist of laminate for ballistic protection, connected to the base material, which can be coated with various coatings, for example anti-slip rubber coating or decorative lining. Materials have been developed to protect vehicles in accordance with STANAG 4569 standards.
                4: Panels for booking vehicles that are manufactured to ballistic protection levels defined by EN 1522 ballistic standards.
                PARA-LITE FLEX is an ultra-plastic laminate that includes lightweight protection to book a vehicle against external hazards. The material can be bent, inserted and secured in the doors of the vehicle or placed under parts of the interior trim and even under parts with a large radius of curvature. The material is supplied in the form of structural panels for subsequent use on all types of vehicles.
                5 PARA-LITE® Armored Partitions
                The PARA-LITE armored partitions combine laminated plastic for ballistic protection with a lightweight honeycomb structure that is coated with decorative cladding on the sides and edges. The combination of various claddings and base materials makes it possible to meet specific requirements for thermal and sound insulation, weight restrictions, as well as requirements for ballistic protection and technical design conditions.
                But all this is very expensive.

            The Turks in their factories produce a lot of things for the NATO countries in the flesh for tailoring lumps and shoes.
            And what about the ACV-15, it’s also almost if you install a cannon on a motor bike and hang something like a dynamic mounted armor.
            So the future is still for heavy infantry fighting vehicles.

    It's just that the USSR faced this in the 1980s in Afghanistan with the BTR-60-70-80 and BMP-1-2. and in Chechnya And NATO countries now ....

    Nato and the real fighting, not the exercises. Here flaws of equipment, combat interaction, weapons, etc. are revealed.
    In Syria, too, a bunch of flaws were revealed. This is normal.
    Another question is that the Turkish command poorly analyzed the tactics of the IGilovites and the combat operations of the SAA.
    So now fully pays for his carelessness.

      Yes, they analyzed it normally, it’s just possible they sent pro-Gülen officers and soldiers into battle.

    the war in Syria clearly shows that there is something, Western armored vehicles are visible only for the development of military budgets and parades, but in fact, only Papuans in Africa drive ...

    This is the eternal struggle of armor and means of breaking into this armor. Alas, to date, almost all BMPs are vulnerable to one degree or another. The war puts everything in its place and shows the weaknesses of technology.

    Bulletproof booking LBT, large losses l \ s at the forefront.
    Increased protection with additional reservations, weight gain, loss of speed and buoyancy.
    Installation of active protection systems is very expensive, about half the cost of infantry fighting vehicles or armored personnel carriers.
    The optimal solution is the application of electrodynamic effects on cumulative jets to protect objects from cumulative melee weapons with a penetration depth of homogeneous armor within 500 ... 600 mm.

      Every year, the third generation ATGMs hit the roof more and more - electric armor will not save them, and Germany has appeared -
      In 2018, the Bundeswehr can get into service light rockets Enforcer.
      As part of the tests conducted by specialists of the Technical Center for Weapons and Ammunition of the German Ministry of Defense, the missiles were tested for accuracy. During the test, several launches were made on targets located at distances of 1000, 1500 and 2000 m (maximum range for Enforcer). The report states that all missiles accurately hit the targets "with minimal deviation from the aiming point."

      Enforcer rockets are developed by the German division of MBDA. The creation of a promising light missile system started at the end of the last decade and should be completed in 2018. The description of the development program indicates that the purpose of the work is to create and launch a series of a new high-precision system for the ground forces and other units that can hit targets at short distances (up to 2 km).

      The small-sized guided missile will be delivered in an ultra-light transport-launch container (TPK) of square cross section made of carbon fiber. The container has mounts for mounting sighting devices. TPK rocket is disposable and can be thrown after launch. As for the sighting device, it should be removed and used for the next shot, being installed on a new TPK.

      The weight of the launcher with a missile is less than 7 kg, the set of two TPK and the sights are less than 20 kg. Enforcer is equipped with a multi-purpose warhead, designed to defeat lightly armored vehicles and enemy manpower, as well as an optoelectronic homing head. Next year, the Bundeswehr will conduct another test of Enforcer - missiles will be tested in low visibility conditions, after which they will have to go into service with the German army.

        From 3rd generation ATGMs with GOS and modern T-90 tanks without KAZ are vulnerable, talk about protecting light armored vehicles from light RPG rounds with grenades like PG-7LV or PG 7VR and ATGMs of 1 or 2 maximum generation.
        If you do not go into the cost, then the upper hemisphere and the roof of the armored vehicle can and should be protected by KAZ such as "Drozd-2", "Arena", "Afganit".

    Hmm, a good thing. As the engine from T-72 understood. A walk from Acacia.

    , YES, that sort of thing. Ready BMP, GSH for self-propelled guns, etc.

      Iron fist, cape, afghanit and so on. while everything is in theory, there are no real events with KAZs yet.
      Lopatov generally suggested that a Duplet of two ATGMs or RPGs fire at vehicles equipped with KAZs.
      Yesterday on the tape I saw a suicide bomber walking in a car while zigzagging until he hit a ditch with water. And they beat him with all possible means. He could get there.

    BBM protection is not only armor. According to the results of military operations in the TFR, it was found that when the BMP was destroyed in 45% of the cases, the crew dies. When the armored personnel carrier is destroyed, the crew dies in 15% of the cases. Conclusion: it’s safer to travel on an APC in 3 times. Recently, there was a video in VO: A rocket flies into a pickup from machine guns, the barmalei fell off the body and scattered in horror. The pickup is in the trash.
