New BMP "Lynx" passed in front of NATO troops

The German company Rheinmetall presented its new Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicle at the exercises of the North Atlantic Alliance. The demonstration took place on September 22, 2020 in Hungary during the NATO "Brave Warrior" maneuvers.


This is a significant milestone for our LYNX team to see this vehicle for the first time in the Allied military theater. We received a huge amount of positive feedback from the military!

- noted in Rheinmetall.

The place for the demonstration of the new product, apparently, was not chosen by chance. Hungary, which purchased 218 BMPs of this type in September this year for more than 2 billion euros, is the first customer of the KF41 Lynx. At the same time, even the Bundeswehr did not acquire it.

The video shows the movement of the BMP in front of the troops. The footage shows NATO military equipment in a sandy color, including the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle, with which the Lynx is apparently comparable in size.

Lynx is produced in two versions (KF stands for "Kettenfahrzeug", which means tracked vehicle in German): Lynx KF31 weighing up to 38 tons, crew 3 + 6, and Lynx KF41 of slightly larger weight, crew 3 + 8. As the main caliber is a Wotan 35 cannon with an electric drive, which, as indicated, "shoots tested and in service 35x228mm ammunition from Rheinmetall."

      Why does it hurt the futuristic?
      Barrel protective cover?
      So they showed it to us 5-7 years ago on promising Russian models of armored vehicles ...

        Yes. and at least not fenced in "birdhouses" outside.

          It is still necessary to wait a while: how will they begin to install combat protective equipment, a Curtain-some, again, active armor, smoke pipes ... - but you never know what - so birdhouses and turrets must be sure will appear. Although there is one birdhouse on the tower, and there is already a periscope nearby ...

            And who said that Kurganets was our undoubted design success?
            Since 2015, consignments of vehicles for experimental military operation have been sent. As a disadvantage, the military called the high profile of the car. Despite the fact that the profile of "Kurganets" in height is approximately the same as that of its western counterparts (48 mm higher than that of M2 Bradley, and 58 mm lower than that of the German Puma), as well as the same thickness of armor , the Russian military, traditionally preferring low-profile vehicles, call it "a grenade launcher's dream."

              For modern anti-tank systems, the size of the BMP is no longer a significant parameter for effective destruction. Yes, and the soldier now went bigger - to sit huddled in a low Behe ​​reluctance.

              Don't want to ride horses into battle "traditionally"? Or go to the bayonet? After all, "traditionally" Russian soldiers were famous for their bayonet fighting. And low profile mine protection is out of tune.
              Again the generals are preparing for the past wars.

                With bayonet fighting, everything is in order - they taught me, and for several decades I have been trying to keep in shape. I didn't have to deal with modern ATGMs, but they never went inside - precisely because of the mines. Because the "tractor drivers" have always been somehow in a special pity - they have nowhere to go ...

                  Well, then what's the point in the low profile of the BMP, if the infantry adds another 50-70 cm from above? Moreover, the infantry is not protected in any way.
                  So it turns out that Kurganets with the fighters inside is not much higher than the BMP-2 with the fighters on top. And if the KAZ is still as promised, then the difference in height in a meter is, in principle, uncritical.

        Lynx KF31 weighing up to 38 tons, and Lynx KF41 a little more mass ... According to the Russian classification, closer to the tank ... Consider the T-55

    About a meter longer than Bradley and about half a meter wider. They are approximately equal in height with Bradley.
    In general, the goal is so good, voluminous ...
    The main conclusions can be made after the process of work of the ATGM along with the process of burning and leaving the car by the crew is traced.

    It is clear that their BMP from Rheinmetall Defense is to a large extent created as a counterweight to our Kurganets-25 universal tracked platform.

      Well, you also compared: some kind of Pshek's tin can and Rheinmetall's super-dolls (even if (strictly between us! lol ), RM also did not always carve only nonubivahi)!
      The Germans have great engineering technology, and the pshek have apples with strawberry fudge ... This is a purely political question! laughing

    The cost is impressive !!! Approximately 850 million rubles apiece !!! This is what a rollback it was necessary to zashashlyat to buy this vyser of the German car industry.
    For comparison, t90ms costs about 200 million rubles. That is, for this trotter you can kum 4 normal tanks. And for 50 million rubles of guided missiles.
    Before that I thought that the main suckers in Evropka were Ukrainians. But no, the Hungarians hike.

    You can, of course, poke at the height of the profile, the weight of the car and other disadvantages, but the lynx's cannon is, however, a thing, and 35 mm programmable projectiles for it, with remote detonation. And so are the mini-booms with a detachable pallet. And on our not "having analogues in the world" even 57-mm with DP is not able to cut down. Why??
