At the same time, “BMPs in this operation on the front line serve not as delivery of fighters, but as mobile firing points - they suppress identified targets with fire from 30-mm cannons, while trying not to enter the area of ​​operation of anti-tank weapons of terrorists”, the publication says.



According to the newspaper, the BMP-2 in Syria are in service with the most combat-ready units. "This technique is relatively small, and it is used sporadically, during the most significant operations, which include sweeping from the terrorists of the Palestinian Yarmuk camp near Damascus," the author writes.

    That’s why we quickly launched Terminator. Life sets its tasks, and war all the more.

      Therefore, we are accelerating the upgrade of BMP1 with the METHOD OF INSTALLING THE TOWER FROM BTR-82., Instead of launching the production of the "terminator" and BMOT.

        Eugene, we launch the terminator, but the option of modernization is still being considered ... do not confuse the concept ..

        and even if BMPs are being modernized in this way, then in Syria the crews do not need to prepare for them, unlike the terminator ..

            "She (BMP-1) is currently undergoing military tests, and somewhere in the summer the machine will be put into service. Considering that today about 7000 of these machines are operated abroad, this modernization project has great prospects in the arms market," the source said. agencies.


            In discussions earlier wrote that this modernization is more likely for export ..

            something like this given that in our troops there are not very many of them ...

      Dima, a paradox, but a 100 mm T55 is more accurate than a T72 smoothbore gun.
      besides that T55 and that T62 warring there are more tenacious ... he dug a hole with a rag, the crew changed and the car is ready for battle again ...

    This is the right tactic.
    Stuffing a weakly armored vehicle with infantry is unreasonable.
    But to use it as a light support tank - that’s it. good

      It was originally designed to deliver infantry to the battlefield and support in battle .. Armored personnel carriers to escort .. and what we see in Syria is the tactics of armored groups still in Afghanistan ...

    "At the same time," BMPs in this operation on the front line are not used to deliver fighters, but as mobile firing points - they suppress identified targets with 30-mm gun fire, and try not to enter the terrorist anti-tank weapons zone, "the publication said. ".. News information 0! Well, they work in a group on points ... And Cho ?! Or the main thing is that they burned a solarium without fighters. Not according to the Charter?))
