Brazilian Defense Ministry Receives Three Hundred BBM Guarani


It is reported that "the share of Brazilian-made components currently exceeds 60%, including the transmission and chassis, FPT Industrial Cursor 9 diesel engine with an 383 hp power."

In 2007, Iveco won a contract to develop, together with specialists from the Department of Science and the Ground Forces of Brazil, the VBTP-MR armored vehicle and to supply the first 16 prototypes.

Then several contracts were signed in 2012, 2013, 2014.

And in November 2016, the Brazilian command concluded with Iveco Latin America a contract to supply the Guarani VBTP-MR serial floating armored combat vehicles 1580 with the 6x6 wheel formula.

In total, according to the basic agreement signed in 2009, the Brazilian army will be supplied with 2044 BBM. The total cost of the program is estimated at 2,5 billion euros. Delivery must be made before 2035. The vehicles will be delivered in versions of the BTR, communication vehicles, control vehicles, ambulance and conveyor 120-mm mortar.

The new BBMs are designed to replace the outdated Cascavel EE-9 and Urutu EE-11 BTRs produced by the Brazilian company Engesa.

      So it seemed to me that it was one and a half times higher than the armored personnel carrier. I’m not talking about BMPs and BMDs ... Iveco trucks make good tractors - you can stand in the cockpit at full height and still have half a meter above your head. In my opinion, the same designer designed ....

      All over the world, new and promising BBMs are now doing this. So RPG is no longer relevant, there is protection from it.
      You don’t think that all military designers in the world are boobies and only experts are sitting in the military ...

    Apparently, in the light of new detection tools (thermal imagers and other radars), the low silhouette is irrelevant and not fashionable for designers, but, sorry, they don’t always act against a high-tech enemy, but for a Papuan with RPG-7 it’s just some kind of happiness)

      the point is not in detection, but in the ease of contact. it’s hard to miss such a crocodile. in vain the Brazilians are doing this - they would play football, but it is better to buy equipment there. where they understand this

    the Brazilian army will be delivered 2044 BBM. The total cost of the program is estimated at 2,5 billion euros.
    This amount is enough to throw any conquistadors back into the sea back into the ocean, and the continent’s neighbors are already a little afraid of the Brazilian army, because. it is more total than their army. A worthy investment in its own army and in the development of its own military-industrial complex.

      And if you have 30mm guns on the DUM, can you approach the range of an RPG shot?

          here it feels like it’s not only 5+ meters high, in which case you really need protection from RPGs and at least it's cutting grids
