Iran began modernization of the armed BMP-2

Iran began upgrading the BMP-2 armies in service in Russia, acquired in Russia as early as the 90s. Currently, the ground forces of the Iranian army have 400 BMP-2, which have proven themselves in the course of many years of operation.

Iran began modernization of the armed BMP-2

Works are carried out at the tank repair plant, which was built by the USSR more than 40 years ago. BMP-2 are undergoing a complete overhaul and, judging by the published materials, upgrading. So, instead of the old Komplekts complexes, the Deuks begin to receive modern Dekhlaviya ATGM systems, which are considered to be a copy of the Russian Kornet-E with a laser guidance system.

At this enterprise, BMP-1 is brought back to life. This equipment was supplied to the USSR in Iran in 70-s. "Pennies" took an active part in the bloody Iran-Iraq war. Then a large number of such BMP was captured from the army of Saddam Hussein. Currently, the park of this technology has about two hundred units. As expected, they will also be upgraded, reports RG-Force.

        Iran does not consider Russia a reliable partner in the military-industrial complex.
        Too often, they threw for the sake of virtual Western cookies. At the same time losing real huge money needed by the state. For example, Russia lost at least $ 4 billion on the Chernomyrdin-Gore pact. At a time when the Americans from the noble shoulder sent us as a gum. help overdue rations and "Bush legs", which otherwise would have to be disposed of.

      And this is the opinion of a specialist, or so, went for a walk. I mean, that such modernization in the Russian troops was appreciated by military experts, quite high

        It’s better in the back than on foot, better in the BMP-1 than in the back .... If modernization is done in addition to the new technology, then this is good, but if not, instead.

    good Both BMP-1 and BMP-2 are worthwhile Soviet vehicles !!! And if the Persians are being upgraded, they will operate without problems for years to come.

    We are also modernizing, because there was no money even for the bulk purchase of the troika. Not to mention something newer.

      What for? It’s better to sell them ready-made. The BMP (like any of our military equipment) has a huge percentage of production localization: from ore mining to the latest electronics ... work for thousands of our citizens!

      Iran is a competitor and not always friendly, why should they help? The experience of the USSR was not enough when all these leaders sat on the maintenance, or rather milked?

    In my opinion, they were subjected to such a decision, the use of the same BMP in the Syrian conflict, on both sides. And to see quite successful that they came to the conclusion - BMP for modernization. If there was a negative experience, they would simply be allowed to recycle.

    Even if it’s budgetary, but if you protect it with protection, it will still serve.
