The deadlines for the end of state tests of equipment on the Kurganets-25 platform have been announced

The Ministry of Defense has agreed on a schedule for testing military equipment on the Kurganets-25 platform. Reported by "News" with reference to sources in the MIC.


The Russian military department and the military-industrial complex have agreed on a test schedule for infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers on the Kurganets-25 platform. According to the new schedule, preliminary tests of combat vehicles will take place from May to October 2021, and state tests will begin in November, which should take about 12 months. At the same time, it is noted that state tests can be extended if any shortcomings are revealed, time will be given to correct them.

The Ministry of Defense reported that tests of individual components and units of equipment are currently underway.

At present, the troops are in trial operation with several dozen military equipment on the Kurganets-25 platform of various configurations, which are not final. The first batches of combat vehicles were delivered to the 2nd Guards Taman Motorized Rifle Division. It is this technique that is a participant in military parades on Moscow's Red Square.

Earlier, the Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov said that the final dates for the delivery of equipment on the Kurganets-25 platform will be determined by the Ministry of Defense based on the results of state tests, which are planned to be completed in 2022.

      That is, in the translation completely into Russian, during military tests, shortcomings were revealed and the wishes of the military were expressed. Now all this will be finalized with a file, and in a couple of years the final product will be presented.

          If only .... Now this is what an agreement and a promise to the emergence of new technology in service. Interestingly enough fingers and toes to count everything.
          Su-57 about the end of testing, acceptance into service and the beginning of serial production, serial 76 units in 10 years, announced 3 times. The latter, probably not the last, but the last, production will begin on 29.05.2019/XNUMX/XNUMX.
          But ......

    It is possible in Syria to bump into such a big thing with penguins - the big "Kurgan" is far to be seen.
    And it stands as the last modification of the T-90.

        So he has some kind of boxes on the sides, just from an ATGM from ambushes - he will do it. lol Will play the role of bait for grenade launchers ... "There is a mountain-Kurgan, luring all ATGMs to hunt ... until they are completely destroyed."

              What are you talking about? For the Syrian / Libyan scenarios, the BMP-1 / BMP-2 are still gathering dust in thousands of storage.
              And in a high-tech war, aiming does not go along the profile - with the eye through the bar, but along the laser and thermal imager - and they (modern) do not care about the profile of a jeep or that of BELAZ.
              But security and armament are the main characteristics of survival.

                Have you looked at the price?
                About $ 4 million , and this is not even the price of the T-90, this is the price of the Armata T-14. So maybe for the sake of BIGGER security and unification of platforms, accept the T-15? At least it is unified with the T-14.
                And "Kurganets-25" is not unified with anyone or anything. Therefore, it will be expensive (very), but unloved in the army. Especially zampotekh - to maintain and repair equipment in general with no other spare parts that do not intersect ... this is a crap.
                And, AGAIN - see the price tag.
                For the same or a similar price, you can buy the T-15, and it will be a platform unified with the T-14.
                Now do you understand WHAT I mean?

                "Kurganets" is effective, comfortable and protected ...
                But DEAR!
                Like Armata.
                So maybe it's her ?!
                T-15?
                And you don't have to plant a zoo.
                A ragtag.
                If we, as Israel, had the military budget provided by third-party uncles - yes to health!
                I would not say too much.
                But our budget is limited, and the question is: either one Kurganets-25, or one Armata T-14, or T-15.
                And what to choose?
                Or so - one "Kurganets-25", or three BMP-3M.
                what to choose?
                If you fight tomorrow?
                The Germans had very good tanks (guns, optics, armor) ... But they were very expensive, difficult and capricious in operation.
                Who should serve this assortment?
                Or is unification better?
                On the chassis?
                On the engine and chassis?
                By protection systems?
                And we, except for "Kurganets", on this platform, there is nothing.
                Yes and no need.

                It's a pity of course the money spent.
                And such a machine can be useful for the National Guard and the military police ... But the price in this particular case does not justify the quality obtained ... WITH LIMITED RESOURCES.

                The questions should be looked at COMPLETELY.

                  T-15 is almost 60 tons, Kurgan - about 25-27 tons, are you sure that these are interchangeable vehicles?

                  If three BMP-3s die where one Kurgan survives, then definitely a Kurgan, and he will survive, since firstly KAZ, secondly, normal mine protection and passive armor, and not "luminium".

                  What's the difference? Unification is beneficial only for machines that are produced in relatively small batches. And the Kurgan will replace the BMP-1 and BMP-2, and how many of them do we have? How many Kurgan residents will have to be made? That's right - here the price will also decrease due to the mass scale and there will be no problems for the replacement techs, because there will be a lot of them everywhere ...

                    Magpies on their tails were worn, and for a long time. And officially.
                    This topic was rather heatedly discussed, and the Army refused this (Kurganets). "The dream of a grenade launcher" was called not by me, but by the command of the Ground Forces. And the price is prohibitive and irrational - the financial service of the RF Ministry of Defense.
                    But the industry invested in it, invested very seriously and counted on profit.
                    The trouble is that his price came out at the level of his last Western classmates, so it will hardly be possible to reduce the price for domestic purchases by deliveries under external contracts. And at the available price they do not want / did not want to take it.
                    But there is lobbying. Precisely the same lobbying, as well as the nuclear "super destroyer" and "corvette 20386" ...
                    And at the same time, the upgraded BMP-1 with a module from the BTR-82A (!) And T-72B3 with the most budget version of the modernization are entering service ... Do you know why?
                    Because the Military Threat and the Army need to be re-equipped as soon as possible, for the available money, so that the equipment is repairable and does not cause problems with the development of personnel, so that the soldiers mobilized from the reserve can simply sit on the already familiar equipment, so that spare parts are available, in sufficient quantity and every part.
                    And to the RIGHT TIME.

                    And this is not a panacea for all needs, but a highly protected assault infantry vehicle. Those. machine for specific tasks, not just in case.
                    The command of the Ground Forces opposed this vehicle, not because its performance characteristics are bad, but because the state would not be able to provide massive supplies in a short time, because it is difficult to conceptually fit these masses into battle formations into combat tactics. And as a result, at best, several brigades will be able to transfer to this technique.
                    Because we do not have a socialist state, when it is possible to concentrate the efforts of industry and finance on the most priority tasks and to solve them as soon as possible. This is not possible under capitalism. With non-sovereign capitalism, even more so. When capital is transferred to offshores and foreign funds, when the state does not have its own Treasury and there is no sovereign right to issue its own currency and the ability to independently finance its own economy. But the "state" gives guarantees for the defense industry enterprises to receive loans (!) In commercial banks (!!!) for the development of equipment for the state order.
                    fool ?!
                    Not .
                    This is just how our "state" is arranged, in which power is limited from all sides by external forces that have established the rules. And the restrictions are primarily FINANCIAL.
                    And even the well-meaning representatives of "vlast" have opportunities for financial maneuver in favor of the state and the People .... extremely limited and constrained.
                    And you mean "Kurganets".

                    Really - in echelons.
                    In the best case for him, two or three brigades will be transferred to him (Kurganets). And they will try to find him a buyer abroad.
                    This is reality .
                    Not a single sample of "Kurganets" was presented at "Army-2020", and everyone noticed it.
                    Doesn't that convince you too?
                    And the articles about him that appeared after that are the work of lobbyists from the industry.
                    Remember the statements of the USC management about its readiness to build an armada of "Leaders" - these atomic monsters, in which even the most powerful Soviet Union became disillusioned.
                    Here is the same picture with "Kurganets".
                    Yes, the infantry must be protected. And for this there is / appeared the BMP-3M - with enhanced armor, the transfer of the engine to the front, an uninhabited module (optional) and powerful side screens from the Kurganets.

                        You inattentively read what I wrote. I wrote that the purchases of "Kurganets", if any, will be limited to a set for 2 - 3 brigades. For it is very, very expensive. How limited is the purchase of cars on the Armata platform.
                        Your opinion about the future of "compact armies" does not work in our case - look at the size of the state, the length of the borders, the variety and scale of possible fronts in the future ...
                        Have you looked?
                        Now think about what to plug all this.
                        And further .
                        The role of BMPs on the battlefield is increasingly reduced to the role of a more armed armored personnel carrier (the difference and their tasks you yourself probably understand well), and therefore they will rarely engage in direct combat. But you need a lot of them - for the entire l / s of the attacking group. Therefore, the old BMP-1 \ 2, and even their modernized versions will increasingly play the role of just such armored personnel carriers.
                        The rearmament of tank units on the T-72B3 and the modernized T-80 also indicates that the number matters, and the intention to modernize the entire fleet of these tanks confirms this.
                        To wage colonial wars with a limited contingent on distant shores is not our case, although it does happen. Our theaters are long, vast and varied and require a large amount of equipment and a good reserve thereof for quick replacement of losses.
                        Financial opportunities .
                        They will not allow us to transfer all or most of our armored vehicles fleet to new models in the next decade for sure. This means that work on promising systems will continue, and purchases will be limited to battalion, at best, brigade kits.
                        This is reality .
                        Exports can speed up and facilitate the rearmament of their Army for new samples, which, by increasing the serial production and reducing the cost as a result, will save money on purchases for themselves. And also the export tax can be used to purchase the same equipment for your Army.
                        But with "Kurganets" it is harder - its price is not inferior to Western models, and therefore a special gain from the export tax (for "Kurganets" the tax will probably have to be reduced, otherwise you will not sell it), but if it works out, the serial production will slightly reduce the price and possibly even beat it off development cost.

                        And it will ONLY work if we have this time.
                        And he seems to be gone.
                        And if not, then you need to arm yourself with what you already have in warehouses in sufficient quantities, bringing it into line.
                        And our opponents are not doing better at all.
                        And this process is very dynamic.

                        Government management is not a game of "Monopoly", funds and resources are always limited, and one can rely only on real opportunities. Therefore, now the modernized T-72, T-80, BMP-2 and even BMP-1M ... and BTR-82A are going to the troops.
                        But they go en masse.

                        And "making up for losses" in the event of a large-scale conflict, back in the USSR, was considered exclusively in the form of reopening of old weapons. For this, by the way, large quantities of T-72B3 and other "berezhki" are being produced - then sent for conservation to create a reserve.

                You are an interesting interlocutor ..
                I answered ONLY your criticism with regards to the larger profile, comparable to the T-90 (quote for you).
                And for some reason you answered in the field of "competitiveness with the T-15" at an equal cost ..
                Strange, but okay)

                OK. Yes. On this point, I agree with you that unification and single-platform functionality is hyper-important. It is the same on such remote borders as Syria. As with logistics there, just like with warehousing, it is difficult.
                But again, the availability of alternatives and competition are not the worst drivers for the development of the industry.

                And the fact that such products are needed, especially not in "meat grinders", but where similar military-humanitarian events are held. When losses "out of the blue" are simply not even ideologically acceptable. But we are already a friend)

            Do not mention the sanctions of the fret - this is nothing, there is only one problem for the economy - oil prices, yes, they have seriously adjusted the budget. As for the modernization of old equipment, while the development of a new one is going on (with which we were really 15 years late), we need to have something at least a little digestible, but simply repairing and painting will be ineffective, since it will cost about the same money as modernization...

              Oil will never be expensive again, as soon as the price rises, the factors of its lowering are included (abolition of OPEC quotas, US shale, unprofitable deposits) - this quickly brings the oil price back down and everything starts all over again. So the price will now and forever flounder from $ 25 to $ 70, adjusted for inflation.

    He's been riding in parades for 5 years (this turns out to be military tests of an experimental batch!), And also did not go to state tests! Oh how! And it is not known whether they will pass at all. We love to show "scary advanced toys". Only no one is afraid of them, since everyone knows that these are running models in public. Veterans and kids are happy.
    And that, not from the moment of development, but from the moment the experimental batch was shown until the end of state tests, it will run 7, or even more years! Shock tempos, let's face it!
