In the US, developed armored fire support

33
In the coming years, American designers must create a prototype of a lightweight mobile armored fire support vehicle (MPF), which will not only compete with the Russian self-propelled Sprut-SD anti-tank gun, but also change the course of hostilities on land, reports RIA News Post National Interest.




MPF will help the infantry on the roads. The mobility of such combat vehicles will provide you with fire support and protection, which will allow you to strike at the enemy before he stops your progress,
quotes the publication of the words of the Deputy Chief of Staff of the US Land Forces, Ricky Smith.

At the same time, the general did not mention the exact weight of the machine being developed, however, he stated that when it was created, the military "would strive to achieve the optimal combination of power, mobility and survivability of military equipment." According to him, this prototype "will surpass Russian samples, including in terms of survivability."

According to the publication, the development of a new prototype is due to the fact that the M1 Abrams, which are the main combat a tank, "They are not always able to provide infantry with fire support due to heavy weight and mobility restrictions."

One of the main qualities of the new machine should be the ability to quickly transfer.

“Rapid transfer is particularly important in the European region, where Russian troops, for example, may be in close proximity to NATO forces,” the author writes.

The new military equipment, which is attributed to the “light tank” category, according to the American military, “will surpass the Russian self-propelled antitank gun“ Sprut-SD ”2С25”, which is equipped with 125-mm smooth-bore gun and weighs about 25 tons.

It is expected that contracts for the creation of prototypes will be concluded in the 2019 year, with the first samples will be made in the next 14 months, the newspaper writes.

            He says that everything is correct. Any army will need a quick mobile complex with powerful weapons. But at the stage of completion, anything can happen. Especially in the USA

          Is that what you can better come up with "Octopus"?. Is it possible to stuff the latter with modern applications and install KAZ laughing

          Come up with this one. To saturate the troops with them is quite another. After all, they still have slightly different production capabilities.

          It's not about BMPs, but about a light tank (possibly wheeled) ...
          To strengthen the "light brigades" we also need to develop such a machine, but for it we need to develop a corps from scratch .... and not "DROKI" to fence ...

            The Americans are rethinking the transfer of troops across Europe .... Heavy Abrams will not pass and pass everywhere .. this is what the article is about ..
            From the original article:
            The Abrams tanks, equipped with 120 mm cannons and protected by heavy armor, find it difficult to support the infantry in such conditions because of their heavy weight and lack of mobility.

                Why not gossip ... Indeed, they are doing stupid things. Once they were going to switch to a complex of machines, then they abandoned it "because of high cost", and now they will actually spend a lot of money in strange attempts to reach the FCS level without FCS themselves 8))))))

                The interests of the American military-industrial complex have long and powerfully contradicted the needs of the American army. And the industrialists are clearly winning. Definitely agents of the Kremlin 8))))))))))

    Blah blah blah and nothing concrete. There will be another bunch of lards thrown into the wind.

    And another interesting phrase "will compete with the Russian self-propelled anti-tank gun"

    It means that they actually admitted that mattresses do not have such equipment, so they rush about in half, making loud statements.

    In the coming years, they will begin to create a prototype. Wonderful. "Sergeant Bilko" in action.
    Despite the fact that we and the Chinese already have such a machine. And the increase in survivability of the "Octopus" is quite possible to implement the installation of KAZ.

    Something I did not hear about that in the USA the plants of heavy and medium mechanical engineering were crushed and scrapped to the Chinese. Automotive does not count. In the years of World War II, their industry supplied us with tens of thousands of tanks and tens of thousands of aircraft. Hundreds of thousands of cars. Radio stations, telephones, stew and egg powder. And now the capitalists do not need to organize the production of any equipment. You need to take a sober look at the emerging situation. While the United States in the Middle East is playing against us, but if a religious war begins in the States themselves, then they cannot survive without the help of Russia. It is about the survival of the white race, which has many rich enemies in the States themselves.

      Yes, the freemasons on percussion instruments to all sorts of religious wars. Any crawl on the integrity of the platform for the printing press of painted, cut paper will be crushed. They will flood the territory with blood, regardless of citizenship and skin color. There are plenty of trained units for this purpose. The USA, in fact, is not a state, an association where the government has a colossal debt to private individuals cannot be called a state, in the generally accepted sense.
      A machine will be built if they want. With this, they never had problems and never will. Curled brains are fleeing for a "better share", the technical equipment is still at the level. Abrash has long required a replacement, cumbersome and not effective. Only as a firing point to use.

    which will not only compete with the Russian Sprut-SD self-propelled anti-tank gun, but will also change the course of hostilities on land
    Something that closely resembles the statements of the Ukrainian defense industry. Better than Russia, it will change the course of hostilities and will take place in a parade on Red Square.
