Indonesia wants to buy Russian BT-3F

13
Russia is negotiating with Indonesia on the supply of BT-3F floating armored personnel carriers (BT-2017F), told Rosoboronexport (ROE), the head of the ROE delegation at the gunsmith, Sergei Goreslavsky, during a BIDEC-XNUMX exhibition on Tuesday.


Гореславский отметил, что изначально индонезийская сторона поднимала вопрос об удвоении своего парка naval боевых машин пехоты российскими БМП-3Ф. Предполагалось, что переговоры пройдут во время визита индонезийской делегации на международный военно-технический форум "Армия-2017".

Indonesia wants to buy Russian BT-3F


Earlier in some media information was published, according to which Indonesia intends to abandon the purchase of Ukrainian-made floating BTR-4 in favor of the new Russian armored vehicle BT-3F. According to these publications, the Marines of Indonesia, after testing the floating wheeled BTR-4, came to the conclusion that the Ukrainian armored vehicle was excessively “buried” with its nose in the water while overcoming water obstacles at full speed.

BT-3F company development "Kurganmashzavod" was first presented at the forum "Army-2016". It can navigate and parachute from transport aircraft. The crew of the BT-3F is three people, while the armored personnel carrier takes on board up to 14 paratroopers.

A remotely controlled combat module with a machine gun of 7,62 caliber of millimeter with a thermal sight and laser rangefinder is installed on the roof of the combat vehicle. The horsepower 500 diesel engine allows speeding up to 70 kilometers per hour on land and afloat to 10 kilometers per hour, reports RIA News

        Indonesia has more than fifty BMP-3s in service, which they are not complaining about. So it’s logical to think about acquiring an armored personnel carrier based on it.

      yes not, on the basis of what the screech ???? by them themselves foiled delivery dates ??? and claims for quality ??? ... and BTR-3F is the reincarnation of the BTR-50 on the newer BMP-3 base, and it has nothing to do with Kharkiv art (BTR-4 is like Kharkiv ???) .. Not so long ago, a photo report from the Kurganmashzavod on the site was .... so that maydanuty in flight ...

        Your arguments are more than obvious, but do you really think that this will stop Ukraine before the opportunity to once again blame Russia for all its troubles?

          Finding those who are not satisfied is not a problem everywhere. The main thing to give it for the total. In fact, Indonesia can acquire anything from anyone. Moreover, the Russian Federation can take a barter (there was news) Guns in exchange for oil

    Indonesia wants to buy Russian BT-3F

    Russia is negotiating with Indonesia on the supply of amphibious armored personnel carriers (BTR) BT-3F

    Somehow it’s not clear. If Indonesia wishes, then it must negotiate with Russia. And it turns out that Russia is forcibly imposing its products. recourse
