For many years, Russian industry has demonstrated a support combat vehicle at exhibitions tanks (or combat vehicle fire support) "Terminator". The first contract for the supply of such machines appeared only in 2017 and was soon completed. At the same time, the industry has already begun developing a new version of BMPT / BMOP - "Terminator-3". This project can be completed in the very near future.

Announcement after announcement


Since the beginning of the tenth years, the possibility of creating new versions of the "Terminator" with certain features has been regularly mentioned. In particular, at the level of general thoughts and rumors, the construction of an BMPT on the promising Armata platform appeared. However, until a certain time, no official information on this matter was received.

In the spring of 2016, the management of the NPK Uralvagonzavod spoke about their plans to develop a new BMPT based on the Armata with the working title Terminator-3. At that time, almost 30 samples of equipment for various purposes were created on the basis of this platform, and one of them was to be a fire support vehicle. The new project also planned to use new developments in the field of weapons. It was proposed to replace the 30-mm cannon with the 57-mm system.

Soon, UVZ clarified that several options for the appearance of the new BMPT based on different chassis and with different weapons were being worked out. The final appearance of the car was to be determined by the customer. At the same time, a full-fledged development of the project was not carried out at that time. It was planned to start after receiving the order for "Terminator 2".

In November of the same year, UVZ published a book dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the enterprise. In this edition, a new modification of the Terminator was again mentioned - based on the Armata, with two 57-mm cannons and guided missiles.

In 2017, several BMPTs were tested in Syria. In the same year, the Ministry of Defense ordered the delivery of 12 BMPTs of the current modification, and the next year the finished vehicles were shown at the Victory Parade. Probably, in the wake of these events, UVZ began work on the formation of the appearance of "Terminator-3".

At the beginning of 2019, a surge of interest in Terminator-3 was again observed in the domestic and foreign media, but this time no new data was published. NPK Uralvagonzavod was also silent. Hopes for a demonstration of the new BMPT at the Army-2019 forum did not come true. This year, a similar sample was also not announced.

Possible appearance


The current status of the Terminator 3 project remains unknown, and there is not much information about it. However, already now you can imagine what such an BMPT could be and how it will differ from its predecessors. The innovations announced earlier point to the most serious benefits of various kinds.

"Terminator-3" can receive the chassis of serial T-72 or T-90 tanks, but such a machine on the Armata platform is of the greatest interest. It is a versatile tracked chassis with combined armor and an engine with an output of 1200 to 1800 hp. The chassis architecture allows mounting various target equipment, incl. combat module "tank support".

It can be assumed that "Terminator-3" will retain all the means of protection inherent in "Armata". Its own armoring of the hull will be supplemented with reactive armor "Malachite" and active "Afganit". The crew will remain inside the hull, so the combat stability and survivability will remain at a high level.

The first "Terminators" have a turret of a characteristic design with a remote mounting of weapons. The new BMPT could retain this architecture - adjusted for the change weapons... It is possible to use one or two 2A91 57 mm cannons developed by the Central Research Institute "Burevestnik", which has already found application in a number of projects. Combat characteristics can be increased by using new types of shells.

For "soft" targets, the machine gun must be preserved; it is possible to use automatic grenade launchers. The installation of guided anti-tank missiles is mandatory. It can be the "Attack" complex, as on the current BMPT, or the "Cornet", which is now entering the troops.

The armament will have to be installed on a completely uninhabited tower, which imposes some restrictions on the formation of a complex of optical means and a fire control system. However, similar developments are already available and used in the T-14 MBT project.

Expected Benefits


The use of the Armata platform promises significant advantages. It can help increase the mobility of the BMPT, as well as reduce risks when working on the front lines. The distinctive layout improves crew protection. An important feature of such a platform is the open architecture of the onboard equipment. This simplifies the creation or modernization of samples for various purposes, incl. BMPT.

The use of 57-mm guns instead of the existing 30-mm 2A42 will lead to obvious advantages. By increasing the caliber, it will be possible to increase the firing range and the power of the shells. In addition, according to the experience of the Baikal project, it is possible to introduce new functions such as programmable detonation. With such a weapon, Terminator 3 will become even more dangerous for any objects on the battlefield.

According to various sources, the new BMPT / BMOP can receive one or two larger caliber guns. Which option is more interesting to the army is unclear. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages. Two cannons will provide an increase in the rate of fire and firepower, but will increase the mass of the gun mount and require more ammunition. The question of the number of weapons should be decided at the stage of developing the technical specifications.

Machine-gun and guided missile weapons on the BMPT have confirmed their capabilities both during long-term tests and during deployment in a real conflict zone. With their help, "Terminator-3" will be able to fight manpower at short distances and with heavy equipment at maximum.

BMPTs of the first modifications with 2A42 cannons and "Attack" missiles are capable of hitting targets at ranges of up to 4 and up to 8 km, respectively. Terminator 3 with 2A91 and Kornet will increase these characteristics to 16 and 10 km. At the same time, the number of target channels does not change.

Missing sample


In general, BMPT / BMOP "Terminator-3" on a new base and with new weapons has great prospects and may be of interest to both Russian and foreign armies. However, the realization of the potential of such a machine is hampered by one "trifle" - the project is not yet ready. Moreover, not only the timing of its appearance, but also the very likelihood of successful completion of the work remains unclear.

In the recent past, NPK Uralvagonzavod has repeatedly raised the topic of creating an updated BMPT, but recently there have been no new messages in this regard. The Ministry of Defense also does not address this topic and does not show an obvious interest in the new Terminator. It should be remembered that this machine for a very long time could not get into the army, and after the order of the first batch of new purchases did not follow. It is not known whether the new BMPT will succeed in becoming more widespread.

It is very likely that UVZ will soon present the first real materials on the next version of BMPT, and they will contain all the most interesting details. However, the timing of such a presentation is unknown. "Terminator-3" can be presented at the next exhibitions this year or later - if the project is completed and they decide to show it publicly.

Thus, around the developed BMPT / BMOS "Terminator-3" there is an ambiguous situation. This project, judging by the declared characteristics and features, is of great interest, at least in terms of technology and capabilities. It is quite capable of arousing the interest of potential customers in the face of our army or other states. However, the development of this BMPT is delayed, and the hypothetical adoption into service is postponed indefinitely. Time will tell whether it will be possible to change this situation and give the army all the new opportunities and advantages.

    I think the division into APC transport vehicles and fire support vehicles still suggests itself. Any attempt to reconcile is always a compromise. We need an armored personnel carrier with good capacity and pure machine-gun armament and a Terminator with a small-caliber cannon, machine guns and an automatic grenade launcher, the presence of ATGMs is not critical. The presence of large ammunition and the ability to create a high density of fire are critical. For work in the city dump. Then the assault force will have a convenient landing, movement and the ability to take good ammunition with them. At the same time, there will be sufficient fire support on the battlefield with a well-protected vehicle. When all this is shoved into one car, it turns out that the landing party is cramped and inconvenient, while the ammunition is frankly small. The widespread use of Shilok, ZSU and other gantrucks in modern wars shows the correctness of this concept.

      I fully agree with you in this opinion. A heavy infantry fighting vehicle, here "neither fish nor meat", it will be flawed in transport function due to the presence of powerful weapons, and, conversely, the presence of a transport component will limit it as a full-fledged specialized fire support vehicle. In this, the "tandem" solution is much preferable, where well-protected armored personnel carriers go with the infantry in the second line, and next to the tanks (or even ahead of them), BMPTs work, which do not need to wait for the infantry to dismount, and which will be better armed in their specialization and protected, without sacrificing size, maneuverability and production cost.

      Practice has shown that from a tank knocked out in urban conditions, the crew does not always have time to reach the shelter, therefore the presence of a landing module in the BMPT is also justified for the possibility of evacuating the crews.

    In the Soviet Union, tanks were developed and even produced, with missile and machine gun armament, about 50 pieces. But they did not show themselves anything good. And rockets are quite expensive. The rocket costs like a dozen of Barmaley tarantas.

      Yes, it was, "Object 150" was adopted by our army in November 1968 under the designation IT-1 (tank destroyer), and was mass-produced.
      The tank's armament then consisted of a guided missile system 2K4 "Dragon" and 15 missiles (main weapon), as an auxiliary weapon was installed 7,62-mm PKT machine gun with ammunition load of 2000 rounds. Now, only, now the missiles have become much more perfect, and in a new capacity such a "rocket tank" could be very effective and relatively inexpensive when using stocks of T-72 tanks or on the new T-90 base, which is much cheaper than the Armata. As artillery weapons could be 57 mm automatic cannon, and missiles would be intended as anti-tank weapons.

    In my opinion, with a 57mm caliber, it is more expedient to use one gun - lighter, more precisely, more ammunition. Well, there are still questions about the means of detection.

      But what about suppression fire, when it is the rate of fire that is more important than the caliber?
      It is not for nothing that in Afghanistan it has turned from an antiaircraft gun into a means of support. Like Zushka 23.

            By "different ways" can be understood. for example, the air burst of a 30 mm projectile.
            Or the burst of a 57-mm grenade with half-finished fragments and explosives is larger. than in 82mm mine
            Or an artillery shell burst, possibly on a ricochet. Or with a remote fuse. Or with a radio fuse. Or shells with GGE ...

            The bottom line is that suppression does not require a high rate

                Not. This is just the whole point.
                Small-bore rapid-fire cannons with high muzzle velocities are actually of little use for suppression.
                Unlike, for example, not so brutal automatic grenade launchers. Or not at all rapid-fire mortars.

                That, in fact, is the problem of BMPT.
                From which the military is fighting back with all its might.

                    Let's just do a thought experiment.
                    There is a trench in which the black American Smith is supposedly sitting with the Javelin. And our task is not to let him stick out over the parapet

                    If you try to do this with an automatic cannon, he simply will not notice most of the projectiles. Due to dispersion, they will be either non-flightable or migratory
                    But the 30-mm AG-17 grenades will fall neatly. And you will need to spend less to complete this task.
                    In addition, there will be a possibility of damaging either an ATGM or a black American. For the probability that the grenade will fall into the trench is nonzero. Unlike the automatic cannon projectile.

                        Now we come to the main thing, to the chassis-carrier. The T-72 / T-90 platform pulls both without problems. The current prototype of the Terminator proved it. In the arsenal there are both AGS and ATGM.

    In my opinion, with a 57mm caliber, it is more expedient to use one gun - lighter, more precisely, more ammunition.
    In addition, a fairly powerful gun is located strictly along the axis. Therefore, the recoil is more efficiently extinguished. And there is no unfolding moment, as with a paired horizontal installation.

    For some reason, BMPT is not in demand among the military departments. Why? Maybe their place in the battle was incorrectly determined? And accordingly, their armament / security.
    In terms of security, these are first line cars. And in terms of armament? Why in the first line 30-mm or even 57-mm guns? After all, there are tanks with 125-mm guns nearby. It's the same with rockets.
    Place BMPT behind tanks? Why, then, such high security?
    To put instead of tanks? The tank, as far as possible, defeat any ground targets, except for infantry in loose order, surpasses the BMPT.

      30mm is really nothing, and 57 in the "derivation" variant IMHO would be useful. As a remedy for ATGMs, helicopters, UAVs and ATGMs themselves launched at tanks. In addition, the cannon should be effective against any armor targets, including the enemy MBT. If it doesn't kill, it will fail. And don't forget about the available elevation angles. You have to fight not only in an open field.

        The last "armored targets" in the face of monstrous, huge, heavy and expensive and therefore small BMP such as Puma are simply begging for ATGM ... for MRAPS and other armored personnel carriers junk and 30mm, or even 14,5 from the same junk is enough

          The BMPT must cover all threats, including flying or flying into tanks. ATGM in the near future will cease to be a panacea. The process of installing the KAZ on the equipment went and on the BMP it will be put in the second stage after the MBT.

      What about the first line of a 30-mm or even a 57-mm cannon? After all, there are tanks with 125-mm guns nearby.

      The 125mm cannon is sharpened for penetrating projectiles (speed about 2 thousand m / s) and for missiles. For high-explosive and fragmentation, it is redundant and very expensive. And modern combat is more about suppressing small-sized firing points (infantry, turrets), you just can't get enough shells on them. And the rate of fire is very low - while charging ...
      The 30 mm cannon is only good for its rate of fire and very poor in efficiency.
      The 40mm grenade launcher is optimal for destroying infantry outside of cover, behind gentle obstacles (hills, small buildings) and in window openings - the most needed weapon.
      The 57 mm shortened cannon (as part of the Epoch BM) is already versatile enough to suppress most various targets: open and behind simple shelters (walls, fences, ditches). It has small projectiles (less than that of Baikal or Derivation) - the ammunition can be large enough and the rate of fire will be enough with a margin.


      IMHO: the BMPT module must be equipped with a 57mm cannon (shortened) and a pair of 40mm grenade launchers paired with machine guns in turrets on the side walls of the combat module. The rest of the makeweights - to taste or tasks.

      And my belief is that armored vehicles should be different for field (high-speed breakthroughs) and city battles (infantry support, defense). Accordingly, the following should be used: the high-speed chassis of the Armata with a powerful engine; and a more maneuverable chassis with a T-72 type layout (units are unified with the new generation of technology) with a small-displacement engine.

      For some reason, BMPT is not in demand among the military departments. Why? Maybe their place in the battle was incorrectly determined? And accordingly, their armament / security.
      because it is difficult to operate and expensive. The commander of a tank platoon, on which funds for several million are hanging, is not eager to answer with a ruble for complex remote optical-electronic systems. This is the opinion of a sidekick - a tanker. When I told him the approximate cost of "Armata", he answered me approximately what I wrote above. And there are constant problems with repairs and spare parts.

      From the name of the BMPT it follows that the vehicle should cover tanks. For example, in the city. For which we need very good visibility in all directions, a bunch of trunks, again in different directions (both arrows from the basement and from the windows of high-rise buildings can pose a danger). Of those submitted to the competition, the military liked this one:

      Five crew members, each with their own viewing device and weapons.

      In the beginning, BMPTs were "presented" as a replacement for infantry in joint actions with tanks. But it is impossible to replace it with 100%. Now comes the T-15 (TBMP), where the security is at the MBT level, the weapons are like the BMPT, plus the landing. So MO doesn't want a second Terminator. Too narrow a niche of application turned out. Although there is potential in the future, the idea may be in demand.

            You can also add "Kurganets" to the list, but no one will ever make a BMPT out of it. Their booking characteristics are about the same as those of the BMP-3.

              It seems like I left the Kurganets there. Secondly, the armor of these vehicles is much higher than the BMP-3. Because NATO vehicles have protection up to 6 stanag, in short, they have 30mm BOPS in the forehead and some in the side. Also, the strength of the frames of these machines allows them to be equipped with VDZ, powerful mine protection and actually strong anti-cannon armor, which is more limited on the BMP-3. Also, the design features are not in favor of the Soviet machine in case of damage, it loses its combat effectiveness faster. And today their protection can be compared with tanks, because the side and rear protection of tanks is exactly the same or even weaker, and the frontal armor is penetrated by modern anti-tank weapons, and in case of non-penetration, the AFV inflicts such damage in which its combat effectiveness tends to zero.

The turntables also have the means not to go hand-to-handsmile This will not protect against either the high-explosive 122, or the Rapier, or the anti-tank ATGM. Therefore, in the first line they have nothing to do. Only suicides will attack the prepared defenses in these sheds.

        And the BMPT, correctly implemented, fits very well into this concept. It is not necessary to force weapons, namely the means of situational awareness. Where should BMPs go in battle? A BMPT can go next to tanks. One for several tanks. See more tanks because the crew will fit more. And you can place a full-fledged UAV compact. With a full-fledged operator. And this is target designation for tanks and the same infantry fighting vehicles. On the grid of the battlefield. Several own channels. With an emphasis on the defeat of the infantry hidden behind the folds of the terrain.

          because the crew will fit more

          Yes, as in the BMP. And why is it straight mixed with tanks? So that an ATGM also flew into it and killed a tank with a large crew, and given that the BMPT was sharpened against anti-tankers, it would be hit first.
          And you can place a full-fledged UAV compact. With a full-fledged operator

            Well, the points are:
            1.The tank-like vehicle can easily see more of the tank. Depends on the equipment installed on the machine.
            2. Not like the BMP. For BMPT the optimal crew is 5 people. And the level of booking comparable to that of a tank, including KAZ, will make it a rather difficult target. Plus, the reaction time in seconds will be able to protect against ATGMs. The calculation will be destroyed BEFORE the vehicle is hit and this, in most cases, will lead to a failure of guidance.
            3. Reconnaissance from the rear will definitely be. But the compact UAV is much more effective. Russia has long needed a line of battlefield missiles. Spike analog. Massive, cheap, multifunctional.

      Shooter, you need to decide who will be ahead? - BMPT or tank? Option 1) BMPT moves in front of the tank, finds and destroys all life on the way, followed by tanks, the question is: what should the tanks do? Option 2) The tank moves in front, followed by the BMPT. An BMPT is attached to each tank (the option when there is a lot of $), the tank commander is in touch with the BMPT. When the tank encounters a "solid target" (enemy tank), the tanks cut themselves off, the BMPT is on the "catch". When the tank encounters "soft but dangerous targets" - infantry with possible ATGM and all sorts of RPGs - the tank gives target designation to BMPT - BMPT from behind the tank from LSHO-AGS 57 suppresses "soft targets" with attached fire. An ATGM is needed by an BMPT in case of a one-on-one encounter with an enemy tank. For "semi-hard targets" (enemy infantry fighting vehicles) you need a 30mm cannon. When the military determines where the BMPT will be located and what it will do, then it will be clear what kind of armor is needed, what kind of weapons is needed ... today, on the contrary, the plant makes military equipment at its discretion and invites the military to determine where to put ready-made equipment ...

        That is the essence of the fact that we must walk alongside. In one line. BMPT is much more big-eyed. The tank will not be able to see the target outside the line of sight. BMPT is obliged to do this. And the reaction speed. The BMPT should have it for a couple of seconds. The calculation of the ATGM should be amazed immediately. And 30 mm is not needed there. Deprecated. And missiles are needed not quite ordinary. Optimally inexpensive kamikaze drone.

          The shooter, as an example of the BMPT Terminator 2 - the commander has a PANORAMIC sight, the gunner's sighting and thermal sight. Nothing supernatural. What prevents to put on the tank the best sights, so that the tank "sees"? Instead of the "anti-aircraft machine gun", put the AGS - the commander looks into the sight and the AGS guidance cross is directed to where the commander is looking, noticed (or suspected) the ATGM - immediately pulled the trigger and the AGS turn on the "suspicious bush or window" ... To the commander of a platoon of tanks give the UAV based on his tank so that the platoon of tanks can see the battlefield from above, show the picture from the UAV to all the platoon vehicles including the subordinate BMPT, and send the picture further into the company, and so on ... A kamikaze drone (shahid) is better (in my opinion ) to entrust a special crew (as an example - the ATURA calculation), which has its own guidance-observation UAV, in order not to let the suicide drones (kamikaze) go to waste. The reaction speed drops, but in places of "tension" immediately release a suicide drone (kamikaze, shahid), for quick reaction (for example, during an attack).

    No, well, the Terminator looks, of course, interesting. But, really, what the hell is he needed. As if BMPs do not have the same weapons, there is Berezhok, cheap, angry and the weapons are at the level. There is not enough armor, but who said that this fool of weapons, its drives, and other things, standing on a "cardboard" superstructure on the same "cardboard" roof, has high stability? One arrival of a bit of a high-explosive and the Terminator backs up for remelting (even if at least one chassis for him had more than one lame reverse gear). All these attempts with an attempt from Soviet warehouses to play "Lego" and collect something like that are more reminiscent of the "Great and Terrible" Ukrainian tank industry. Why spend money developing and producing this miracle? If you need an infantry fire support vehicle, it’s an BMP (it remains to make not a BMP curve, because the BMP-2 in the 21st century is not a standard, and everything is old, and the BMP-3 is more a light tank than an BMP, if the Dragoon is given the opportunity to raise high gun, it will be great), if you need something exactly heavily armored, that is, a KAZ for an infantry fighting vehicle, there is a tank (it just has that firepower that they want to shove into the Terminator (!).

      Quite right. An absolutely incomprehensible concept. We need modern infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers, specialized anti-UAV air defense systems, mine-protected wheeled vehicles. BMPT does not perform one of the important tasks.

        BMPT is designed to accompany the tank in the same row. The BMP cannot do this because of its poor protection. The infantry fighting vehicle in the attack goes at a decent distance from the tanks and can cover the tanks very weakly. In principle, a heavy infantry fighting vehicle can do this, but only if you install something like a six-barreled gantruck (or better than two) on it.

      But, really, what the hell is he needed.

      So, according to the experience of Afgan, they did it. It is better than Shilka or ZU 2-23 in the back of the Urals. And in Syria, such a device would be useful to drive the barmaley. There are 30 mm + ATGMs behind the eyes. What high-explosive can fly into it there?
      there is a tank (it just has that firepower that they want to shove into the Terminator (!).

      Who is trying to do this? The meaning of the idea is to supplement the tanks with something fast-firing, long-shooting, well-seeing and able to walk with them in one line.
      if you need something exactly heavily armored, that is, KAZ for BMP

      If you need something heavily armored, then you need a T-15 with a KAZ, which will land the infantry in the enemy's trenches. And nefig bother with "Terminators". The T-15 is the perfect Terminator. laughing

    The equipment for the army needs to be created conceptually for integral units capable of conducting combined arms combat. There are armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, ZSU and BMPT, MBT and self-propelled guns. Attempts to create a universal unit for all occasions are futile, it will not be excellent in anything. But to be able to apply excellent specialized equipment in different situations and combinations is already a task of teaching commanders to think and skill of calculations. Everything has already been proven in the initial period of the Second World War.

          ZSU 23-2 is the best means of infantry fire support. There is enough power for the eyes, the problem is poor security, the absence of normal devices and the inability to get closer to the enemy. The first Terminator was too clever in my opinion. ZSU 23 in a remotely controlled module, AGS on a separate turret, a couple of ATGMs and all this is a platform of tanks from storage. The result would be almost the same at a much lower cost. It would be necessary to invest only in normal optics for the commander and the gunner. A normal kit could be made for converting old tanks into fire support vehicles.

      But what if, somewhere after a TOS strike, or artillery or aviation, the enemy's defense partially survived? What if the grenade launcher suddenly gets out of the dugout? or ATGM, or a jeep with ATGM? The reaction time, the possibility of detecting and suppressing a light target in the BMPT is much higher. And if a tank company operates in the depths of the enemy's defenses, the rear has fallen behind, the weather is bad - and the order must be followed? You all offer some ideal conditions ... something is constantly lacking in war, and most of all - time. BMPT operates as part of a tank unit (from a platoon), and therefore it is always close to tanks.

    First you need to decide whether it is "Tank support combat vehicle" or "Fire support combat vehicle." All the same, we are talking about very different tasks, in the first case the goal is to unload the tank by taking on the destruction of non-core and inconvenient targets for it. about the most versatile machine in terms of fire capabilities and targets.
    1) BMPT
    BMPT should work primarily on infantry, which means that everything above 30mm is redundant and will only cut ammunition. BMPT should have no less caliber than enemy infantry, respectively, the infantry has the largest caliber is 12,7mm ........ here and we get 14,7mm from the one we have ........ 23mm ..... 30mm. The question is that 30mm is already working, and has more flexible options for ammunition and, in the future, even a remote detonation OFS.
    A few words about 57mm that are inappropriate to use in BMPT, the caliber is excessive in the fight against infantry, which is always a lot, more equipment at times, and always !!! We look at the AU220m Baikal and see the ammunition capacity of 80 rounds at a rate of fire under 120. The 2mm cannon has 30 rounds of ammunition.
    Now to the question of missile weapons on the BMPT, do you need to forge it?!?! Destroy enemy tanks? BMP? for this we have a tank, and we must cover it and not do the work instead. But there are quite real tank-hazardous targets of UAVs, helicopters, and here a couple of MANPADS could be useful.
    My vision of the BMPT in today's realities is a lightweight T-72 base (which is just a bunch and it is in use). Armament is a 30mm automatic cannon, with the possibility of firing OFS with remote detonation both at infantry behind cover, and there are air targets in the near zone. At the same time, there are two large-caliber machine guns with the ability to fire both on its side and in the forehead or stern (to have freedom of about 180 degrees, on the tower itself). A pair of MANPADS inside the hull. Possibility of target designation for the tank and exchange of information. And a large stock of the system. setting up smoke, and so that would cover not only yourself and nearby equipment.
    As a result, we have one platform, the most running and therefore less hemorrhoids with spare parts, the zoo is simply smaller. The armament is sufficient but not redundant, the ability for one machine to work simultaneously on 3-4 targets and 360, which is very important in the city. It is possible to drive off the turntables, and some UAVs, and at the same time repeatedly cover with smoke. The presence of a good all-round vision system, radiation sensors and a thermal imager (which should cover the upper hemisphere, giving commands to shoot smoke in the case of missiles in the upper hemisphere) is mandatory.
    2) BMOS
    This is already a miracle beast, which should be able to hit the most diverse targets, and here, unfortunately, there is no way to go without a 57mm cannon. In general, there is a vague goal, why such a machine? I don't understand, it seems to me that it is much more important to have a well-balanced armament BMP.
    It is better to have an ATGM and an automatic cannon on each BMP than toothless BMPs and one or two separate BMOPs which will always be in short supply.

    Of course, a 57 mm cannon with remotely detonated projectiles is needed, but I would add in a separate small turret a 4-barreled 50 caliber machine gun - allowing you to quickly respond to the enemy's manpower that suddenly appears.
    And most importantly, it is necessary to "expand" a narrow area where a person turned out to be a weak link, namely, to significantly increase the speed and quality of enemy detection and weapon guidance. To minimize the response time to emerging threats, it is necessary to use devices (television cameras, a thermal imaging device with a laser - rangefinder, a millimeter wave radar station) and a computer (ballistic computer, AI) for detection, identification, selection of priority targets, calculation of data for shooting, guidance weapons, but the decision to open fire must be made by a person, with the exception of the shelling sectors, where automatic opening of fire will be allowed.

    The BMPT topic has completely outlived its usefulness today. BMPT has exactly two advantages over BMP.

    1. Tank carrying capacity and booking.
    2. Multi-channel weapons (and more observation channels than the tank.

    Erzats based on the T-72/90 were developed and manufactured in small series simply because these chassis were in abundance. They have no advantages over a tank.

    And on the basis of Armata there is already a heavy BMP with the ability to install any combat module. What will be the superiority of BMPT over BMP? The same 57 mm cannon, the same several observation channels.

    for BMPT, it is not so much the caliber that is important as the density of the fire, because it must work for the infantry. The task is to detect and suppress possible threats. For this, 4 barrels can be supplied, at least 23 mm. as on Shilka. Need a lead broom, not range or penetration

            Shilka's reaction speed is higher, in addition, she can keep a large area under fire. In general, the tank acts on the infantry with its machine gun. For this he was given a machine gun. What is cooler - Shilka's 4-speed fire, or a coaxial tank machine gun? Tank cannon against fortifications, buildings, armored vehicles. Although, of course, they shoot at individual soldiers ... BMPTs were not invented for nothing, but based on the results of real battles. The inclusion of Stalin's threshers or shiloks in the armored group ensured faster rates with less losses.

              So why does the shilka have a higher reaction rate? Does the tower spin faster? The goal is more important to discover than to turn the tower to it. And the shilka here only worked according to external target designation (read according to the prompts of a person with binoculars). In Afghanistan, the shilka was valued for two things: it was where it was difficult to drag a tank, and it worked well in the mountains with very large aiming angles.

              It is the cannon that the tank operates everywhere. Already on tank-hazardous targets and at a distance of more than a kilometer - exclusively with a cannon. And this gun works well. The only negative is the elevation angles, from the street to the top floor of the building will not work.

              BMPT was invented for more operational work on a tank-hazardous target. How was this efficiency achieved in the end? Only by increasing the number of observation channels (at that time - the human eye). In this terminator, your additional two channels - grenade launchers in casemates. But they only look ahead and, in fact, can only clean trenches from grenade launchers in a linear battle. In the city or against an ATGM position 3-4 kilometers away, they are useless.

              In Armata, we put the crew in a capsule (by definition), that is, instead of casemates, all the same, TVs inside the capsule. So why aren't these TVs installed in the BMP troop compartment?

              Uninhabited combat modules generally favor large elevation angles. The same 57mm cannon will reach the upper floors very well. If you have time.

              Well, what will be the difference between BMPT based on Armata and BMP?

                BMPT has tank armor. This is its difference from the BMP. I agree that the BMPT complex can be installed on a heavy BMP. Then the BMPT is not really needed.

                2. ATGM at a distance of 4 km will fire on rare occasions. In the desert and Kalmyk steppe. And in the Donbass, crossed by forest plantations, battles were fought at a distance of less than a kilometer. I think a broom is more effective at such distances than a cannon. BMPT with its weapons is capable of suppressing enemy defenses. This is when the soldiers lie at the bottom of the trench and are afraid to stick their nose out. So 4 23mm Shilka cannons are much better than two 30mm BMPT cannons. And better than a 125 mm tank cannon. I think no tanker will refuse such support. IMHO.

                3. By the way, I'm not against tanks here. I am only saying that a tank platoon consisting of two tanks and one BMPT is better than a platoon of three tanks.

                  1. Well, we started here for the Armata base. The BMP T15 has quite a tank armor.
                  1.1 And on the basis of the T-72 we replace one 125mm cannon with one (albeit with two barrels, but the guidance is not individual) 30mm. If they go in the first row, they will burn more often. BMPT price is close to tank price, BMPT loss = tank loss.

                  2. Shilka carries about 2000 shells. This is for 40 seconds of continuous shooting. After that, you can get out of the trench and calmly aim from the grenade launcher. And after 2-3 offsets at a distance of several meters - not only everything will crawl out of the trench) the same applies to a good bunker or a building of 4 bricks.

                  And for suppression fire per kilometer, it is easier to put a twin kpvt in each tank, for that matter. But for some reason this is not done.

                  3. The presence of a BMP with infantry and a cannon instead of a third tank or BMPT will be even better.

    My opinion BMPT needs the army! Let's take Afghanistan as an example. Ahead are adobe houses, behind him a grenade launcher, a tank will even pierce him through with a land mine. And the BMPT will level it to the ground with three shots! And not very much afraid of the consequences because the armor is tank. Now consider the BMP or armored personnel carrier. Bulletproof booking. So that's why the Terminators are needed! They should go next to the tank. Protect its ammunition from light targets.

    In 2017, several BMPTs were tested in Syria.

    According to the results of tests in Syria, the Ministry of Defense noted that the range of a 30-mm cannon is insufficient to defeat an ATGM and recommended a 57-mm caliber.
    From the experience of using attack UAVs in Syria, Libya and Karabakh, it is necessary to refine BMPTs to defeat the latter, in particular, the use of universal or the introduction of anti-aircraft missiles into the ammunition load along with ATGMs.
