BMP-2 have proven themselves in desert conditions

45
BMP-2 well accustomed to the hot desert areas of Yemen. The image of one of these machines belonging to the Hussites appeared on the Web. He writes about it Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




In the middle of the last decade, about two hundred BMP-2 entered the army of Yemen. Since the Yemenis had previously exploited the BMP-1, they had no particular problems.

In addition, Russian cars have better maneuverability and maintainability compared to Western models.

The author notes that the 30-mm gun is valued in many armies of the world for its power, rate of fire and the possibility of hitting a wide range of targets, including air targets.

“It should be noted that the BMP-2 has gained popularity in other Arab armies. For example, at the end of the 80s, they were acquired by Saddam Hussein’s army. According to some reports, these machines were used during the invasion of Kuwait. In turn, Kuwait used the "two" already during the hostilities against the Iraqi army at the beginning of the 1991 of the year, "the material says.

Also, BMP-2 actively used in Syria during operations against terrorist groups.

Russian cars are used in Algeria. There are about 300 upgraded units.

The United Arab Emirates could become another owner of this technology, they really liked the car, but in the end, the choice was made in favor of more modern BMP-3.

      If the “unity” is still fighting in many numbers, then God himself ordered the “dvushka” to be “more alive, all living things”. It is really very maintainable and unpretentious enough, especially for fuel.

                      For those who have not completed literacy courses, there’s an extreme remark: “In 2017, a Soviet record was broken in Russia, when 1978 million tons of grain was collected in the country in 127. A Russian record in the agricultural sector for grain collection was set in 2016, when an indicator of 120,7 million tons was reached ... the average wheat yield is already 44,1 c / ha. This gives reason to speak of reaching a record for export
                      The so-called technological background is growing steadily in the country. These are seeds, means of protection, fertilizers, and energy efficiency, that is, the presence of agricultural machinery. "
                      If a record crop of bananas ... then it is production, but cedar trees are not grown on plantations ... therefore, not production.
                      The equipment is different ... the basis of production is the Don equipment of the last generation and Belarus .... caterpillar harvesters for virgin lands are only Don. There is both import and quality, and this is only in the agricultural sector.
                      The rest has already been expressed to you more than once:
                      "You surely have nothing to do on the VO site, because it’s your opinion in the" banana republic. "
                      And as for the developments, see the Address of the President to the Federal Assembly and no longer whined ... It is desirable that the second part of the speech. "

                        About noodles, hang up others. Since 2000, the production of tractors in Russia has halved. So imported equipment is a large part of the tractor fleet in Russia. But grain has not yet been learned to harvest grain as a “product of production”. wink
                        And the fact that grain is raw material. like oil, every schoolboy knows. Russia as it was a commodity country remains. laughing
                        You even have the logic of a resident of the banana republic - we will sell, in your case, grain, grain, we will buy a tractor laughing

The terms of reference for the creation of the devices were prepared by the head of the Department of Deep-Water Inhabited Devices of the Institute of Oceanology of the USSR Academy of Sciences, PROJECT HEAD I. E. Mikhaltsev .. The main ideas for the design of the device, the arrangement of its individual systems, components, elements, and for the acquisition of scientific and navigation equipment belong to I. E. Mikhaltsev, his deputy A. M. Sagalevich.
          And the Finns advertised by you took part in the construction ..... to the chief engineer of the project from the Finnish shipbuilding company Sauli Ruohonen, who led the group of Finnish engineers and technicians who TAKE PART in the construction of the vehicles.

            Everyone who has an idea of ​​design knows that the technical task is not even a project, but a list of so-called Wishlist and parameters for which the project should be created. Idea and implementation are two big differences. Soviet experts had ideas, could not do anything in iron .. You know very well that the manufacture of spheres of apparatuses that withstand high pressure was the merit of Repola engineers and the use of new technology. And the devices were built in Finland.

      What can I say, copying information from the Internet taught you badly. They did not teach to think at all. All the information you copied is crossed out by a couple of small paragraphs that you specifically undercopy:
      In January-November 2017, the shipment of tractors decreased by 6,5% compared to the corresponding period in 2016. A total of 6,8 thousand tractors were shipped.

      Ibid:
      Shipment of combine harvesters decreased by 0,3% compared to the corresponding period last year
      Shipment of forage harvesters decreased by 17,1%, respectively.

      And, as they say, a cherry on the cake, a summary from the same article that you are referring to:
      In January-November 2017, 7 tractors were produced in Russia, which is 035% less compared to the corresponding period in 2,0, including 2016 agricultural tractors manufactured. (-6%), industrial tractors - 085 units. (-0,5%) c.

      As they say, even with that so-called With the single growth you are pointing to, tractor production continues to dive. By the way, I advise you to study the information before copying. Most of the listed manufacturers are not related to agriculture. Moreover, of all produced tractors, more than half of 55% are screwdriver assembly of foreign cars. Do you want me to indicate the number of 6085 tractors here how many are exported?

        In the total number of tractors produced in January-March 2017, the share of domestic models was 45,4%, foreign-made cars of the Russian assembly - 54,6%, of which: assembly from MTZ tractor kits - 24,5%, from KhTZ tractor kits - 3,4, 26,7%, from sets of foreign brands: (Versatile, New Holland, Agrotron, Axion, John Deere, Xerion) - XNUMX%.

        The growth of tractor production against the corresponding period last year was noted at the following enterprises: Petersburg Tractor Plant CJSC - by 47,4%, DST-Ural LLC - by 26,3%, Sienaich-KAMAZ-Industry LLC, and LLC NPO Mekhinstrument, LLC KLAAS - by 34,5%, LLC Combine Plant Rostselmash, LLC John Deere Rus - 3,4 times, OJSC Cherepovets Foundry and Mechanical Plant - 3,7 times The Altai branch of St. Petersburg Tractor Plant CJSC - 2,1 times, TD KhTZ Belgorod LLC - by 33,3%.

                You’re hiding under a “bunch of emotional shit”, as well as “flying” with the numbers from Wikipedia or the very first website with an addressed request. That I successfully showed you. "Copying that is profitable." Primitive and does not require any knowledge. Like, however, the majority who consider the Internet instance in the first person. I have grammar and syntax errors. Alas, not perfect. Krylova, I know a lot by heart. For you personally: "and you are friends, no matter how you sit down, you’re not good at musicians." And the word "classic" is written with two "C". So address your quote first of all to yourself. Farewell.
