"Dragoon" plus "Boomerang-BM": at the "Army-2020" showed a new BMP "Manul"

The first day of the international military-technical forum "Army-2020" pleased with new products. Kurgan SKBM (Special Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering) showed a new infantry fighting vehicle (BMP) called "Manul".


As SKBM representatives explained, the new BMP is mainly focused on deliveries to export customers. It combines developments on new modifications of the BMP-3 and Boomerang. The BMP is equipped with an uninhabited combat module with a 30-mm automatic cannon, a 7,62-mm machine gun and a Kornet ATGM. The location of the engine is forward, the troopers are located at the rear and exit through a folding ramp. The troop compartment accommodates 8 people.

There is a tendency to exit in the aft, that is, through the rear ramp, the car is made with it in mind. The engine compartment is located at the front. Thanks to the use of the DBM, it was possible to move the engine forward and maintain the center of gravity

- said the chief designer of SKBM Sergey Abdulov.


Declared characteristics: maximum speed on the highway -70 km / h, on a dirt road - 55 km / h and 9,5 km / h afloat.

Note that the new BMP "Manul" is a "cross" of the already known BMP "Dragoon" and the uninhabited universal combat module TKB-945 (Boomerang-BM). This module is used on the Kurganets-25 and Boomerang platforms, as well as on the heavy BMP T-15 Armata. According to the developers, the degree of unification of "Manul" with BMP-3 is 50%.

    If they want to interest "foreign customers", then it is advisable, having said A, to immediately speak and B ... that is, other uninhabited weapons modules are promised as well; also show possible options for specialized vehicles based on BMP: armored personnel carriers, KShM, BREM ... etc. !

      Does anyone have doubts about the capabilities of Kurganmash?
      BMP from the entire line is the most complex and expensive vehicle.
      An armored personnel carrier is, roughly speaking, the same BMP only without a fancy turret; KShM - without a tower, but crammed with additional equipment, BREM - a simplified body with a crane ...

    I, and many have already begun to get confused in the abundance of samples of armored vehicles. Previously, one wheeled armored personnel carrier, one on a harp, 1-2 tanks. Now it has passed twenty, and the end is not in sight. Apparently they are not paid for the delivery of a series, but for the number of experienced machines.

          With a fairly large army, the "zoo" is inevitable so.
          The choosing customer takes into account the issue of spare parts.
          (This was a huge problem for the USSR for spare parts - it was not profitable for manufacturers to make them. But now, on the contrary, it is profitable, even very profitable.)
          How do you see the spare parts selection process? I see a laptop of the chief of supply in which the corresponding databases and programs are installed.

              In vain you are dramatizing:
              1. Not the entire zoo is launched into production (some are eliminated at training grounds such as Syria, some are improving there, but the military will still choose.
              2. Along with the tests "in action", the process of unification is going on (it does not really stop during the entire lifetime of the equipment (for some reason this does not apply to AvtoVAZ products !!).
              3. The Second World War showed the usefulness of inter-KBV competition :: it was this kind of competition that made it possible to select the best models of equipment for mass production, with the exception of those that could not be produced in war conditions, but were in high demand in peacetime and in other conditions of use ...
              An example is the S-60 assault rifle: in the 50s, the cannon was unable to deal with jet aircraft, but now from the old (new) barrels today they have received an excellent "Derivation" for today's conditions.

        Yes, and this fades into the second plan :: Fu-2 was stuck in-stuck in everyone, but the plane was not a normal function, so for all the time of its existence it hangs outside the radar screens, fearing that its inability to fly will be deciphered by documents.
        But the other day, our defencists announced that they were ready to export the Su-57, so according to their assurances, a queue for the supply was lined up since the night, although it is not in service.

      For foreigners to be interested, the technique must be competitive.

      The first Su-30 was delivered to the native Air Force already on the third hundred of the aircraft released. The first 636 submarine hit the Navy on the third dozen built boats. The first BMP-2 Berezhok got into his native army with 6 hundred vehicles sold. Well, etc. Even if we take the BMP-3, the UAE has been the main operator in the world for a long time. And today Kuwait + UAE have BMP-3 more than Russia. And in the future, Iraq will be the largest operator of BMP-3 in the world.

        Moreover, he got into his native Air Force just because the base machines were already in mass production for a foreign customer. Some kind of Russian Reversal: instead of the usual delivery to a foreign customer of a modified version of products "for domestic consumption", the Ministry of Defense ordered a version of an export aircraft modified to meet its requirements. smile Moreover, there are two models in two factories.

    Maybe it would be better to send funds for mass production of anything ???

      So then, not only BMP-3M, but it is necessary to supply them to the troops in conjunction with the acquisition of parts by "Derivation" - then this will be the complex meaning of using tactical formations of the battalion order, and so that the chassis is enough for both models, then let your head hurt about it at Manturov's.

    For our Ministry of Defense, the main thing is action and PR - that's why all the money for biatols, Suvorov onslaught, aviadarts and others! Look, specially under the Suvorov onslaught in DVOKU, 20 modernized BMP-2s were brought in! So what kind of BMP-3M or other Boomerangs can we talk about ...

    In order to GIVE the future, or OVERLINE the future, you need to create at least a prototype, and not just a prototype - this is what scientists and designers work for. Do you really think that they work in order to read your thoughts? Naturally, NO ! So push them where they belong, but it won't make you feel comfortable to sit ...


    I just expressed my doubt, what, I have the right as well as all other visitors to this forum. Is my opinion wrong? May be. I have never claimed that my opinion is the ultimate truth.
    Do you have a different opinion? I am immensely happy !!! It is great that everyone can have their own opinion !!!

    However, you are so frankly rude ... have I offended you in some way?
