French VBCI BMP adapted to the use of the FELIN system

By the end of this year, the DGA (the French analogue of Rosoboronzakaz) will deliver to the troops the first VBCI infantry fighting vehicle, adapted to accommodate a group of soldiers equipped with FELIN infantryman personal equipment kits — the so-called “soldier kits of the future”.

French VBCI BMP adapted to the use of the FELIN system

Adaptation of the BMP to the use of FELIN gives the fighters the opportunity to recharge the batteries of their systems and be fully prepared for an immediate landing, as it allows the FELIN system to be operated inside the BMP. This demonstrates the high degree of adaptability of FELIN, because it has already been installed on the VAB infantry combat vehicle during the operation in Afghanistan.

FELIN and VBCI BMP are the main know-how of the French defense industry and the symbols of its high level. VBCI is a joint brainchild of Nexter Systems and Renault Trucks. The general contractor of the FELIN system is Sagem (SAFRAN Group).

VBCI meets modern operational in terms of protection and capacity. An armored vehicle with a wheel formula 8x8, in the actual BMP version, is equipped with a 25-millimeter gun and can hold eleven infantrymen. Positioned as a “home” for the infantry.

The FELIN system itself is a qualitative step forward in the areas of security, surveillance, communications, firepower, mobility and support for soldiers in direct contact with the enemy.

        They have a somewhat different attitude to both technology and people. Spacious inside.

      Try it, do it! And then, as Raikin said: Everyone strives for us
      inhale pure oxygen, and exhale all nasty things !!!
      We deliver to the world market oil of very average quality,
      and drive fast with high-quality cars, and besides
      bought with stolen money! There are no more people left in the country
      which can normally hammer a nail, and consumer claims
      grow exponentially! The people are already completely crazy about
      stolen money !!!
      But from our who do, I have not heard such statements!

      You go work under our conditions, on our equipment,
      for a penny wage, and even with piecework!

    Before getting to the machine, technological and design preparation of production is carried out. Machines have nothing to do with it.

      Well, if the machines are complex, high-quality and high-precision, then they produce more complex and accurate products. Example: their engines, the gaps between the various parts are smaller than ours, they use more different materials ...
