Another Iraqi modernization of the BTR-80UP


At the beginning of the 1970-ies in the USSR, the GAZ-50 was developed, which was a wheeled infantry fighting vehicle with a combat compartment from the BMP-1, armed with an 73-mm smoothbore 2A28 "Thunder", anti-tank "Malyutka" and PKT machine gun.

BTR-80UP were acquired by Iraq in the 2005 year in Ukraine in the amount of 100 units. As stated, their cost was approximately 30 million. Repairs and upgrades were carried out in Nikolaev on the basis of technical maintenance and repair of armored personnel carriers. Poland played the role of an intermediary in this transaction, and therefore the cars received the designation UE (Ukrainian-Polish). New engine D-80 power 300 hp It was designed to compensate for the increased weight due to the installation of additional armor.

    Apparently the technology is seriously lacking, but what are we sleeping? would modernize our rusting junk in warehouses and sell to them.
    Well, at least so for example.

      As far as I remember, there is no stabilization system. Those. cannot shoot straight off.

        can't shoot straight off

        It’s possible to shoot, it’s problematic.

          But 73 mm Thunder in the absence of enemy armored vehicles is quite an effective weapon. And the Syrians are full of shells for it

                Yes, I know everything. My friend from the student group was in the 83rd in Afghanistan, by the way, your colleague is a border guard. He served as a mechanic drive on the BMP-1, when they returned from the army, printed photos, he told me that he did not like the Thunder in the troops - there were a lot of failures when firing. I even have a song about these ordeals.

                The problem of thunder is to get somewhere at a distance of over 700 meters. Well, the specifics of ammunition, forcing the wind to be actively taken into account. But if you shoot at a distance of less than half a kilometer thunder - fire

            In the absence of an enemy, in principle, Thunder becomes even more dangerous, having no analogues in the world.

                Dima, find the song by Mikhail Kalinkin "Near the city of Herat", there is a whole verse dedicated to this gun. In YouTube, I did not find it, otherwise I would have posted it myself. drinks

        Not. But also on the BTR-60 \ 70 \ 80, either. So that's what happens.
        The plus is that 2A28 is an order of magnitude easier than KPVT. The Vladimirov machine gun is generally quite a demanding piece for the qualification of juzverejs.

    Apparently in urban areas, the power of a high explosive charge has advantages over the accuracy of KPVT.

    Kabzdets shushpanzer turned out. Just the chaos technique from Warhammer 40k.
    But there is brutal sympathy.
