Military Review

The Syrian army is in dire need of a tank-based fire support vehicle.

The ongoing military operation in Syria demonstrates that government forces are still in dire need of a fire support vehicle. Now for these purposes self-propelled installations "Shilka" are used, however their protection remains insufficient and needs strengthening, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


The Syrian army is in dire need of a tank-based fire support vehicle.


It would be optimal to create such a technique based on tanks, and Syrian craftsmen made several attempts to do this, but their options can not be compared with the BMPT-72 Terminator-2 existing in Russia.

“For the Syrian conditions, it was possible to create a somewhat simplified version of this powerful combat vehicle. The main thing is that the combat module with two automatic small-caliber 2А42 guns with ammunition in 850 shells remains unchanged. And also a PKTM machine gun paired with guns, equipped with an automatic reloading device. Its ammunition compares 2100 cartridges, ”reads the publication by Dmitry Lemeshko.

It was previously reported that this module can be installed on the T-72, T-62 and T-55 chassis. But it is necessary that the upgraded car received modern dynamic protection.

According to the author, the use of such technology in Syria "will surely attract new buyers to it, who will want for relatively small money to get at their disposal unique machines with outstanding performance."

      Vitaliy, we’ve already experienced the duck! yes The result - they staked out a new “theme” in armored vehicles! drinks
      Now it's up to the manufacturer! Our Army and Navy - also need such machines! And not a piece. Generals - let them scratch their forehead, for the tactical use of these machines! hi

            I just don’t quite understand how the experience of combating partisans is being transformed into full-scale military operations with aviation, missiles .... What tactics can be prescribed? A few cars in the third tier for the final stripping ... Excuse me, from this little-used machine, even a good one, make a unique combat creation? Not there you are looking for the keys of victory ... And so everywhere ... The shelters offer, if not useless, then a very specific, secondary weapon. with the filing of wretched military leaders. pouting cheeks and leading our army to degradation !!! Where are the modern Combat Information Systems for real-time monitoring of target areas and target designation providing coordination and application of our weapons systems in real time again? Again you will be stacking heroes of spotters, again tanks and personnel at the front with the prospect of losses of hundreds of thousands or more? .. Enrages ... this .... .., stupidity ....

      This is where to start. There are plenty of military equipment in Syria requiring major repairs, some of it can be turned into a “Terminator”, moreover, it can be done at our factories and offered these vehicles for sale ...

          Sory, but I don’t have a report on the results of this test, and if I did, I certainly wouldn’t show it. Here I can refer to this:
          Tank Termination Tank Support Vehicle (BMPT) “Terminator” participated in battles in Syria, said Andrei Terlikov, general director and chief designer of the Ural Transport Engineering Design Bureau (Uraltransmash, part of UVZ), at a press conference.

          "BMPT was tested in combat in Syria, there was no reason to transport it there to participate in parades, it participated in battles against the IS (terrorist organization, banned in Russia. - RBC)," Terlikov said (quoted by "RIA Novosti" )

          According to him, the results obtained in the battles were “useful” for the Ministry of Defense. “These tests became the basis for the contract concluded at the Army 2017 forum,” Ternikov said.

          And the stories of people who visited Syria. They indicate that the BMPT has been combat-tested, in the conditions of fighting in the city and in the open, where it has shown itself very well. They noted its "special usefulness" in the fight against "jihaiimobiles", when shooting on the upper floors, where ATGM calculations were often hidden and high maneuverability in limited conditions, due to the lack of a long barrel ...

        7,62mm is already weak against modern bulletproof vests and you can’t shoot your head on the go. And 9mm will already be with double energy bullet, which is enough for any modern bronik.

          There are two AGSs against infantry in the lowlands, and I assure you that hitting 7,62 is guaranteed to lead a person in any armor out of battle, besides he has much better ballistics. Well, if someone comes up with 7,62, there are 2 cannons 2A42 with a caliber of 30 mm

        7,62X54R energy 3000-4000 J
        12,7 x 108 18000 J is too powerful for widespread use and the heavy weight of 130 g, which dramatically reduces ammunition.

                This is how you can shoot from a machine gun.
                In the machine gun, the cartridges specifically have a dispersion in alignment, so with good barrel balancing (stability during shooting) you will have a random deflection of bullets and a queue less than 5 will be inferior.
                That is why you need to clearly use the intended use of sniper and machine gun cartridges.

                  That’s how the tank shoots Tracer after two, then after three it charges! The line from the FCT resembles a jet, bullets fly almost one by one, In each exercise there is shooting at the 1200 line. Shooting in real conditions of Donbass is the same! No problem getting there! There is a problem to timely detect and identify the target! Nikosovy review scourge of tanks of the Soviet school!

    Maybe such cars are needed in Syria ... Who and how will pay for them? It may even really be possible to think not about the whole machine, but about the development of a combat module that could be put on a tank chassis by the forces of combat repair services ... True, there is much doubt about the possibility of the technical implementation of such a project. Well, the question of who will pay it is not removed from the agenda.

    The Syrians began to think about protecting their soldiers. The carts did not suit the military, no one wanted to die. And they did not have money for the latest (expensive) equipment. So, you can probably make a simplified version for poor countries. The more heavy vehicles (tanks) bandits have few, then anti-tank grenade launchers have nothing to do with them. It is better to increase ammunition for machine guns and cannons.

      I agree with you, it is a good idea to replace the ATGM with an additional BC. It’s just that if in the foreseeable future they still have to meet with ABRASHKI and LEOPERD, and this is not at all possible.

    What only the Syrian army does not need! There, in addition to the Terminators, the list is huge, there is no defense industry of its own, except for the repair factories of U Hasan.

    Why not put the CEP "Curtain"? It seems that there is a place? smile
    But if there was any system that would monitor the launch of the ATGM, the “T-1000 Terminator” would turn out! tongue

    The main thing is that the combat module with two 2A42 automatic small-caliber guns remains unchanged

    for whom is the main thing?! ... what
    and if you replace the 57-mm automatic + a couple of 12.7-mm machine guns will not be kosher? request

    Genry,
    That's ... yes, there is a whole table. Start: 5,45 PSM cartridge initial speed - 315 m, s. Muzzle energy - 129 joules. And so on. There it is written dohrena cartridges, even Tula Tokarev is.

    Well, in general, right. To develop a module that would stand on the shoulder straps of old tanks.
    Missiles nafig, add ammunition and protection.
    And such a module wouldn’t hurt us,
    for we have enough old tanks.

    Have marketers completely lost their senses? make the plant at your own expense 3-5 pieces and even an experienced crew for such a number without problems. but what an advertisement! And to make an express option so that in the field to upgrade the type from the old tank, we remove the tower, put a new body kit, hang it and go!
