        That’s for sure, and a bunch of allies will also work ... But still it’s enough to already make coffins on the tracks - tanks and infantry fighting vehicles should have a minimum of DZ, and ideally + KAZ ... Moreover, there are DZ designs for lightly armored vehicles in Russia. .. For example:




        Why don’t they put such troops into the troops ?!

          To the Russian troops? Umm, why? We are not at war. There is technology, just a little, they will immediately hang what is needed. In peacetime, it is better to push the military budget into R&D.

            I’m afraid that a little, at first there will be a lot of broken equipment and a river of blood of Russian soldiers and only then they will itch, saying how it happened and what to do and then they just remember about the DZ and KAZ for tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers ...

            Gradually, yesterday it was necessary to put both DZ and KAZ on all military equipment ... Otherwise, it would not even be able to leave the place of deployment in order to get away from the strike in the area of ​​concentration and turn around for defense ... The subversive groups will burn everything on the march ...

            Your policy is incorrect No. let's then arm NATO (by the way, which we are already starting to do) with our modern weapons standing around our borders am and on a budget we don’t know whose pockets it’s flying negative , and ours will be trampled on a little old junk with a dresco angry . First of all, you need to provide your troops with new weapons and teach them how to handle them so that later (if a bit) they do not look at the new equipment with blunt eyes without knowing which button to press yes

              Oh, if we were multi-star generals in non-acidic positions, it would be possible to discuss, and so the point is, I am only a modest starley, and not the Russian army smile
              But at least I see that not everything is so bad in the Russian army, there is no need to exaggerate colors like that.

              When Ukraine attacked us, people immediately figured out how to work with equipment, even those who did not serve in the army. Of course, this does not mean that you need to score, regular fees are held, training is at the level that we have, as in the Russian Federation yes

          Nv in the first DZs on light vehicles is not very relevant ... due to the fact that it will not destroy the entire jet. And even the weakened part is enough to pierce the BMP board. I’m silent about tandem and other tricked charges. There, most of the tanks have no chance ... but KAZ cannot be used in the same order as the infantry. She will crush her own more than enemies ... so think ... that's why we started to create new platforms.

        Very happy for fellow countrymen (KMZ). I just don’t understand, there are a lot of orders, and the plant is on the verge of bankruptcy. What the hell?

    Our production is clearly accelerating. Orders uploaded. Market mortgages: if there is demand, the producer will be drawn to ensure that production volumes correspond to the level of demand. And it’s good for us - in which case we can sharply redirect production to quickly meet the needs of the Russian Armed Forces.

      And also for modernization, that is, putting on the stream BMP-3M "Dragun" and "Kurganets-25"

    in the same 2015, Saudi Arabia ordered 900 BMP-3s, but the contract has not yet been finalized.

    It is very doubtful that they are finalizing.
