BMT can be used in the offensive and defense, in the conduct of large-scale hostilities and in the zone of local conflicts or in the conduct of peacekeeping operations.
Taking into account the existing need to increase the level of protection of tracked armored infantry vehicles, armor protection which already lags far behind the armor protection of tanks with which the infantry fighting vehicles must interact, the KVBM KPBM developed the BTMP-84 heavy infantry fighting vehicle.
The BTMP-84 was designed on the basis of the T-84 tank chassis, while the machine’s design was designed to accommodate two tank tower operators with an 125-mm cannon and an automatic loading mechanism. To accommodate the assault, the stock of 125-mm ammunition on the BTMP-84 machine is reduced to 30 shots.
A feature of the design of the machine is the presence in the aft hull of the troop compartment, designed to accommodate 5 infantry.
The door in the stern of the car’s hull opens to the left, a ladder extends downwards, and the chassis roof hatch above the door rises, which allows the infantry to leave the car quickly. The device of the exit hatch of the troop compartment resembles the Israeli Akhzarit infantry fighting vehicle, made on the basis of the reconstructed T-55 tank.
In both sides of the troop compartment there is an embrasure for firing. In the roof of the troop compartment there are hatches.
However, the concept of a battle tank / BMP is a compromise and will lead to significant functional limitations.
