Expert: Russian heavy armored vehicles have not been tested in Syria


“According to military experts, in the Middle East it would be nice to test the concept of using heavy armored personnel carriers and armored infantry vehicles made on a tank base. Since it is still too early to send equipment on the Armata platform to real battles, the BMO-T combat vehicle carried out on the chassis of the main battle tank T-72B could play the role of a heavy infantry fighting vehicle, ”said Dmitry Meleshko, the author of the publication.

He notes that the car is well protected - “on the frontal projection, the built-in dynamic protection“ Contact-5 ”is mounted, there are powerful side screens with built-in“ reactive armor ””. According to the author, they are much more effective than those on T-90A and are well protected against anti-tank weapons.

However, he believes that it is necessary to install a remote-controlled machine-gun installation on the armored vehicle. Currently in Russia there are several models of such installations.

“As a result of the modernization, an armored vehicle capable of transporting 7 motorized infantry units, which is sufficiently well adapted to Syrian conditions, would appear. The experience gained will definitely come in handy when creating a new generation of equipment, ”concludes the author.

      I can’t imagine where even 72 people can be accommodated in the T-7 building. Standing, like in a minibus at rush hour, or what?

        I have no idea where you can even place an 72 person in a T-7 package.
        In the photo flamethrower in the belly of the BMO-T. Under the heavy BTR machine it is quite possible to modify.

      We would have already bought from Israel a patent for a heavy BMP based on the T-55 tank and would have fired

        Israel’s T-54 / T-55 is not a BMP, but a heavy Akhzarit armored personnel carrier, like the latest Namer, a heavy armored personnel carrier, and this is a significant difference. The Israelis didn’t really want anyone to decide to send such equipment next to the tanks. On the basis of T-55, we have long ago created the BTR-T. True, on the "Ahzarit" stern outlet is crammed in, we do not.

      Why 7 ... and not 8 ... 10.
      First, the use of a tank corps imposes certain restrictions. Secondly, why compare a heavy car with an armored bus, one successful hit, and, together with the crew, the paratroopers minus 8-10. Thirdly, 6-7 people can be placed more comfortably, make the car more compact and better protected. As an assault group, they will dismount faster, take up a position as a group more quickly. What is the BMP does not like, if we are talking about a "heavy BMP"? The whole point of the creation of the BMP was in its versatility, maneuverability, the heavy BMP in this loses the very concept of such a machine, losing this very maneuverability and versatility, and in specialization the heavy BMP will be inferior in weaponry and protection of the BMPT, in the transport function of the heavy armored personnel carrier. The meaning of the heavy BMP, except that only as a counter-guerrilla, police "tank." For marches, to overcome water obstacles, such a machine as the BMP-3 is optimal, and as a heavy vehicle, the duplex of the BMPT (specialized fire support functions for its tanks and infantry) and the heavy BTR (specialized armored vehicle function) seem to be the best. Here, the "heavy BMP" will be replaced by a bunch of BMPTs with several heavy armored personnel carriers.

    I always wanted to ask - where to roll it on it? To battle? Or to have them as a mass infantry vehicle?

    First, find out how many of them are in service with us, then all questions will disappear. Like in a joke - and now we will attack our tanks - ALL TWO!

    Since the equipment on the Armata platform is too early to send in real battles,

    In my opinion, just right, you can make changes in the design along the way, identify weaknesses for hot countries and dust. Where to experience it as in war, it’s another matter that this may not be a product but a mass prototype, they just tell us that here

      Let me immediately point out all the weak points of this car.

      This machine is designed to follow in the construction of tanks during the breakthrough of the defense line. This concept was adopted to confront the army against the army. But not against the partisans in the city. When it is not clear who, the civilian population or terrorists are beating from all the cracks and sewers from the RPG and Molotov cocktails.

      Concurrently, pass to the author that he himself hammer his nails with his selfie. Do not give such advice to others.

        You do not find contradictions in your statement?
        Civilians beat on tanks from RPGs, in my opinion just a masterpiece.

        I understand from these words: that Russia has no opponents in the form of armies, all around are friends and only partisans threaten us.
        What is the concept bad?

          We wanted to "Armata"! Armata must be left for the parade, but how many cities have parades? So many have not done "Armat". And for the war against the barmalei, and these will go. Against the equipment that is now imported from the Russian Federation + VKS - I think Kalash will not stand! And when will the T-34 begin to arrive?
