Strange choice of chassis: Ukraine showed a prototype of the BMP "Kevlar-E"

Images of a prototype of a new Ukrainian infantry fighting vehicle BMP "Kevlar-E", which is being developed by the private company "Ukrinnmash", have appeared on the Web. I drew attention to the photo "Ukrainian military portal".


As the newspaper writes, the first pictures of the new BMP "Kevlar-E" appeared in 2018. For the vehicle being created, the specialists of a private company took the chassis of the ACS 2S1 "Gvozdika", which in turn was created on the basis of the MT-LB, removed the turret with a 122-mm cannon, made an add-on to increase the troop compartment and installed the BM-3M "Shturm" combat module on this structure. ".

According to the developers, the BMP crew consists of three people: the driver, the vehicle commander and the gunner-operator, the troop compartment can accommodate 6 fighters. Earlier it was reported that the new BMP proposed the installation of Raketka reactive armor elements, which is a light version of Knife reactive armor, which was developed specifically for light armored vehicles, as well as Shershen (Zaslon-L) KAZ.


The Ukrainian media drew attention to the strange choice of chassis from the self-propelled guns "Carnation" for the future BMP, since they are in short supply for the Ukrainian army. This is evidenced by the purchase of used ACS abroad. In 2019, Ukraine acquired MT-LB in Myanmar, where it had previously supplied a set of technical documentation and a production line for assembling the 2S1U chassis.

The restoration of MT-LB production, promised back in 2015, without Russian components at the Kharkov Tractor Plant, remained a promise.

      MTLB is good as a tractor, as an auxiliary vehicle. Even as a base for an SPG is normal.

      But for the BMP is rather weak! The armor is bulletproof, the cars themselves are far from new, the alteration is strange and, apparently, "on the knee" ... Plus, new ones cannot make them. It is sad what the "independent Ukrainian" defense industry has reached. And it's a pity to put the guys in these coffins - they are essentially ours, just temporarily duped ...

      The BMP-1 will even be better for its own purposes, not to mention the following models - they were specially created for their functionality ... But it seems that everything was sold out or spoiled - now there are severe perversions ...

      and our version of MT-LB -6MB too:

      and here the Ukrainian "designers" are getting a little crazy! By the way, they also tried to build a "light tank" from a "motorcycle" ...

      Same buzz, same concept. On BMP "Kevlar-E" raised the ceiling of the troop compartment, thus raising the towers. On the BMP-23 there was a problem with the downward firing angle, since the turret is behind the hull. With the BMP "Kevlar-E" this shortcoming was eliminated. The body of the "Carnation" itself is thicker than that of the BMP1-2, it holds better small-caliber shells.

        The motorcycle league is good for the conditions of wooded and swampy terrain, where passability on soft soils is more important. To maneuver and bypass roads for the control of which will be the main battles. When defending against an attack from above with guided munitions or submunitions, the difference with more protected counterparts is small, as they say, if it arrived, then it flew in. And in the case of a short fight, such as a collision at a crossroads, or a clearing, too. Moreover, MTLB is not intended directly for attack. That the SMK in the Winter War, that the IS-2 in 1944, in the same place on the same road through Summa-Hotinen, were knocked out by the Finns, and let the first pass through the anti-tank Bofors, they put the squeeze on it with land mines, and the second PAK-40 and faust patrons, but the result one, and the Abrams or T-90 at combat distances comfortable for a grenade launcher in such a theater will differ little in survivability from MLTB, only on the first two, when you leave the road, you will not go very far, and even more so, you will not take away the infantry, so valuable in the forest , and the motorcycle rider has a chance to take the landing force through the forest shelled by artillery fire, so that it can then seep through the jungle. And the motorcycle league also floats, which further expands the ability to maneuver in such a theater.

      No weird choices. The best chassis, reliability, maintainability. There is, of course, a little that I would like to improve, for example, to modernize the tractor control, you will be tormented by the inexperience of shifting gears to the comb. "Motalyga" you are my nostalgia. Cross-country ability is better than that of BMP and BMD.

      So here - if translated, it turns out:

And, if the North Wind blows more ATGMs or something else destructive into the positions of the DPR and LPR, then, I think, such an infantry fighting vehicle, and the tanks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, will be knocked out. It would be better for them to recognize the LDNR as an unrecognized state similar to Transnistria or Karabakh earlier, and to recognize the status quo. And you won't have to buy / lose equipment and people, and, like, Ze kept his promise - he stopped the "war with Russia."

    After the collapse of the USSR, the MT-LB production base remained on the territory of Ukraine. On the chassis of this machine, the Kharkov Tractor Plant has developed and produced a civil all-terrain vehicle KhTZ-3N.

        There is nothing secret or particularly complicated in the production of armor steel. Under the USSR, metallurgical giants were built, aimed at producing large volumes of rolled armor steel.
        For the current volume of production of armored vehicles by Ukraine, it is still possible to transfer converters to the production of armor steel, but the rolling mill is no longer there, the changeover is worth that volume. It is more profitable to buy ready-made armor rental.
        And the DMZ "fell off" from the "zapadentsev".

          And what does the DMZ have to do with it? Armored steel was rolled, hulls were made at the Ilyich Combine in Mariupol. The production was successfully ditched, although he remained in the Ukrainian zone. However, the scandal in Ukraine was quietly hushed up as part of the so-called "European" armor turned out to be ... contraband Russian ... And if the DMZ produced alloy steel, then for the teeth of excavators and other earthmoving equipment

    The project of a private company, which, among other things, also produces spare parts for military equipment.
    I don't think there is a chance that it will be adopted.

    They are not the first to create BMP based on MTLB or self-propelled guns. Bulgarians have already done this option for a long time. The question is different, it's just another version of "cutting" the budget, nothing more.

    They made a good "motorcycle ride" in the USSR!

    The Swedes (!!!), for the needs of their army, they buy, wherever they can, MT-LB, from the countries that were previously part of the ATS ...
    They put their components and assemblies, and are happy as elephants ...



    Pbv 401 on the maneuvers of the Swedish army.

    The Swedes bought not only the MT-LB, but they simply fell in love with it more, for its high cross-country ability and low operating cost.

    I read the article with pleasure.
    But you can not discuss it ... in Ukraine, there will be nothing new, EVERYONE has no personnel.
    And all these attempts ... so for pumping out the "attendants" ... if you look at the photo, then the car is reinforced with additional armor .. that the maximum is protection against the automatic 7,62 from 100m.
    And the mass is already under 21t. The chassis is overloaded, the water fur sits separately. The development of a new machine is carried out at KhTZ by the same company, but there are the same problems.
    So there is nothing to discuss. And most importantly, the "Square" does not have its own engine and never will.

      If my comments are minus, then the site is watched by "pigs" and pass by ... although it is nice to watch how they themselves only destroy everything .... and cannot produce anything. KMDB and Malysheva are already in minuses as well as KhTZ ...

    What's so strange? Everything that is done in Ukraine is cutting money, everything is stolen, one copy was painted or even blinded, and then: the Chukchi is not a reader, the Chukchi is a writer.

    Nothing new. They ripped apart the Bulgarian BMP-23.

    Same buzz, same concept. On BMP "Kevlar-E" raised the ceiling of the troop compartment, thus raising the towers. On the BMP-23 there was a problem with the downward firing angle, since the turret is behind the hull. With the BMP "Kevlar-E" this shortcoming was eliminated. The body of the "Carnation" itself is thicker than that of the BMP1-2, it holds better small-caliber shells.
    In my opinion, the Bulgarians used thicker sheets, the standard body of the Gvozdika self-propelled guns, on the contrary, will be weaker than the BMP.
    As far as I remember from what I have read, the idea of ​​the original BMP was born after the Bulgarians did not suit the BMP-1 during operation and assess its combat qualities, if I am not mistaken, they created their prototype with an automatic 23mm small-caliber cannon even before the BMP-2 with 30mm appeared cannon. This shows that the Bulgarians also had their own military school, and they did not trail with a dull satellite in the tail of the USSR.

    It's all ridiculous. In this reservation country, taxes cannot be collected. And there they are constructing military equipment .. Better to clean the latrines. They do it better.
