The Marine Corps can receive the "marine" BMP-3F

The Russian marines may receive the BMP-3F infantry fighting vehicles. The final decision will be made following the results of the Kavkaz-2020 strategic command and staff exercises. Reported by "News" with reference to sources in the Ministry of Defense.


The military department will make the final decision on equipping the marines with the BMP-3F after the KSHU Kavkaz-2020, during which the marines on the BMP-3F will act during the roleplaying of the episodes on the Caspian coast.

BMP-3F - "naval" modification of the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, distinguished by greater buoyancy. It is equipped with a lightweight water-reflecting flap, a telescopic air intake pipe, and water-reflecting flaps on the tower. Able to move on water with waves of three points, and with 2 points to conduct aimed fire. The speed afloat is 10 km / h, with the engine running, it can be in the water for up to 7 hours.

It is assumed that the BMP will replace the floating Tanks PT-76, used during the Soviet army, but already withdrawn from service. Currently, only the BTR-82 is in service with the marines and there is no equipment with more powerful weapons. Recently, the marines began to be armed with tanks, but they cannot be used at the first stage of the landing when seizing a bridgehead, they operate only on the ground. At the same time, the BMP-3F carries a 2-mm caliber 70A100 cannon capable of hitting armored vehicles and sheltered targets.

Note that although the BMP-3F was developed about 10 years ago, it is not in service with the Russian army, a certain amount of equipment is in trial operation. The only country that has adopted the BMP-3F into service is Indonesia, which purchased 2009 BMP-2012Fs in 54 and 3 and entered into a new contract in 2019 for 22 BMP-3Fs and 21 BT-3F armored personnel carriers, created on the basis of this BMP.

      And yes, unusual. Alexei, hi And unusual because earlier the MP was always equipped with materiel according to the residual principle. The same PT-76 and 2s1 "Carnation" in the old days got "at a markdown" from the landowners. And here is a machine developed by a specialist for the needs of the Marines fellow - even a little awkward from such luxury. repeat laughing

    At the same time, the BMP-3F carries a cannon 2А40 100 mm caliber

    What kind of beast is this? There is 2A70 - 100-mm gun for BMP-3, and 2A40 - tower ZPRK 2K22, 2K22M. This is what thoughtless copy-paste leads to.

    I heard that there are side screens with positive buoyancy for BMP 3. The size is added a lot. But they also increase the protection. And buoyancy, respectively. A good reason to introduce it into the standard package.

                The topic of the article was "The Marine Corps can be armed with the" naval "BMP-3F". "Water barrier" and the sea are not exactly the same :-). Are you sure that the first photo shows a modification of the BMP-3F designed specifically for the marines? If so, then I am wrong, but I do not see in this photo the large telescopic air intake pipe, which is clearly visible in the photo at the beginning of the article at the back of the car.

    Talk that the Marine Corps will arm the BMP-3F since the early 2000s has finally "been born", God forbid! During my service, we had BTR-80, PT-76 and T-55, the latter looked like a complete anachronism.

                        BMP-3 - landing of 5 people, MT-LB - landing of 11 people ... Count for yourself how many machines you need to land a hundred marines. MT-LB is needed as a "truck" for delivering marines from the BDK to the shore. The BMP-3F should be used as a fire support vehicle - and instead of the landing force, load an additional ammo.

Brezhnev: Have you read my book? Of course you read it! This masterpiece will be read in the 21st century! Brezhnev entered the office and thought: This is necessary ! Maybe I should read it too!? ... This I mean that the Russian Armed Forces "became interested" in the BMP-3F, after 10 years of operation of this device in Indonesia!

    Sometimes money for upgrades is easier to get.

    In Indonesia, at the end of the 1990s, PT-76s were modernized, they were equipped with new engines, transmissions and 90-mm Kokkeril cannons. These machines are designated in Western press as PT-2000.

    The car is more than 30 years old .. There is another element base, and more promising designs. Maybe it's time to think about the future, and not be content with the achievements of the Soviet Union .. although the best for the period of the 80s of the last century.

      It's like the history of the invention of the bicycle. Why invent? request
      The United States Marine Corps has the richest history and experience. Landing and fire support are not in "one bottle". Why do they use "seaworthy sheds" and not small armored infantry fighting vehicles?

    The BMP-3F should be used as a fire support vehicle - and instead of the landing force, load an additional ammo.

    Separate the infantry delivery vehicle and the support vehicle.

    It is assumed that the BMP will replace the PT-76 amphibious tanks for the marines, which were used during the Soviet army, but already withdrawn from service. Currently, only the BTR-82 is in service with the marines and there is no equipment with more powerful weapons.
    Something like that they all mixed ...
    PT-76 went to the tank and reconnaissance units, it turns out that she will go there? Wouldn't it have been better then to send the Octopus to the tank units?
    And earlier, the MP was also armed with BMP-2, they are already getting everything, they were written off ...
    For me, it is better to give these BMP-3f to replace the BTR-82 ... to the Russian MP unit
