"Great modernization potential": Work on the BMP-3 will continue

The modernization of the BMP-3 combat vehicle will continue, the equipment will receive an improved engine and a new thermal imaging panoramic sight for the commander. This was reported in the complex of weapons of the state corporation "Rostec".


The state corporation said that the BMP-3 has a great modernization potential, work on the machine will continue. Rostec plans to install an UTD-32T engine with a capacity of 660 hp on the BMP, which will allow the infantry fighting vehicle to become much more maneuverable.

We plan to equip the BMP-3 with a power plant using the UTD-32T engine. It will be more powerful than its predecessor - it has 660 hp. This will allow you to start the engine faster, change its operating modes faster, and make the car more maneuverable.

- leads TASS corporation message.

In addition to the engine, it is planned to install the commander's thermal imaging panoramic sight on the BMP-3. In the course of modernization, the car has already received new means of communication.

(...) serial BMP-3, supplied to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, are equipped with a set of additional protection

- said in a statement.

It is noted that the process of improving and modernizing the BMP-3 will continue, the vehicle will be supplied to the troops for a long time.

The BMP-3M infantry fighting vehicle is armed with a 100mm gun - a 2A70 launcher with a 30mm 2A72 automatic cannon and a 7,62mm PKTM machine gun. BMP is designed to transport personnel to the front line, increase the mobility, armament and security of military personnel on the battlefield in conditions of the use of nuclear weapons and joint action with tanks in battle.

    Judging by how many times the BMP-2 has been modernized, the number of BMP-3 upgrades over the entire service period will be no less. ))

        BMP-1 is a mobilization potential for quick compensation for losses incurred and for the deployment of new formations in case of war. Why should they be wasted when there is enough resource? Well, as an aid to allies, when you need it quickly and inexpensively.
        But the BMP-3 has an engine of 660 hp, this is already like the T-64's power, almost like the early T-72s. So I have to fly with this. Or maybe in case of strengthening the booking, but then the swim is worse.

            This is a reserve in case of a big war, or in case of delivery to a belligerent country, when you need a lot and quickly, and on a familiar chassis. The modernization option is very budgetary and quite effective.

            So they are being modernized. And there are indeed more of them in the storerooms. But the losses of BMPs in a real war are very large - an example of Donbass, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost most of their BMP-2 and were forced to pull the BMP-1 from storage in its original form. This is still not a tank, and it is possible to disable them even with shell fragments. And finally. That's why you need to have a good supply of such (BMP-2 and BMP-1) and options for their quick and budgetary modernization.

            yes But there won't be too many of them anyway - they are quite expensive.
            And the old infantry fighting vehicles will gradually move to the role of armored personnel carriers - the transportation of infantry through the space under fire, because their reservation does not leave them a chance of survival in direct modern combat.

              Well, let it remain in reserve, only you need to take an inventory of all BMP-1s ... so as not to spend money on storing them in a proper form, because, for sure, 2/3 of the BMP-1 is a pile of scrap metal, they are also under the open have stood for several decades ...
              The modernization option is very budgetary and quite effective.

              There are 7 BMP-000s on the BHVT, can you imagine how much money needs to be invested in them in order to bring them closer to the level of the BMP-1M, change the engine, install a new combat module, etc. this will take the entire budget ...
              Here it is necessary to organize a private-state partnership, private traders are developing a scheme for modernizing the BMP-1, private traders with the state at a separate enterprise (so as not to interfere with making a new military vehicle in Kurgan) are modernizing the BMP-1, incl. in BREM, KShM, RHBZ, etc., and then these machines are spent on drink to countries in which these BMP-1s have been released, only 20 of them have been released and the operating operators of this BMP are immeasurable ...
              BMP losses in a real war are very large

              in a real war, large losses will be of all types of military vehicles, not just BMPs ...
              example of Donbass, when the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost most of their BMP-2 and were forced to pull the BMP-1 from storage in its original form

              Well, we also went through this at the PChV, when we have 1 MRBR. and 1 SMR completely burned down, with which they were re-armed, also with BHVT, and there is nothing new there ...
              In the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as in ours and in Belarus, the basis of infantry armored vehicles is infantry fighting vehicles and tracked armored personnel carriers, and not wheeled armored personnel carriers, therefore, the losses among infantry fighting vehicles in the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass are greater than in other military vehicles.
              Among the BMPs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it is the BMP-2 that predominates (unlike us), probably because under the Union in the Ukrainian SSR, the formations of the second echelon of the SA were located ...
              But the APU has 2 MLTB, you can somehow adapt them for motorized rifle ...
              But there won't be too many of them anyway - they are quite expensive.

              Well, how do you want? Spend all the money on the BMP-1, which are 95% all on the BHVT and so that you still have money left for the production of the BMP-3 and the modernization of the BMP-2 (the basis of the RF Armed Forces and the National Guard) ...

                Even the "rebirth from the ashes" into a new look of 1000 - 2000 BMP-1 is already a very good potential. And it's better when you have one and you have a choice.
                Moreover, such machines are very suitable for deliveries to poor countries. Take the same Africa, where our business has recently rushed, and PMCs with military assistance. They can afford this technique and according to their needs. There, after all, often for preferences, our side offers / pays with deliveries of weapons ... A good exchange product from old stocks smile and in a new look. yes

                Yes, not so much is spent on their modernization per year - not such a large number per year to greatly affect the BMP-3 program. The number of BMP-2 undergoing modernization is still larger, and how to compare the cost of modernizing such machines and manufacturing from scratch BMP-3 ... But what is \ appeared \ revived production capacities and competencies (process technology \ production cooperation) for modernization of those deposits of military goods that remained to us from our great ancestors ... are encouraging. If something unpleasant happens, it will immediately be possible to replenish the losses by getting equipment from the HH. With quality repairs and budget upgrades.
                If there is a need to dramatically strengthen the corps of Donbass, make up for their losses, arm mobilized units and subunits ...

      Everybody is good with the BMP, and for us a thrill, nimble, fast, BUT during exercises and marches we shied away from it like a crazy animal in the direction of the armored personnel carriers, and tried to move precisely on them. Because the landing force is very swaying at speed, God forbid to shove the plow, and on the way, a simple half of the infantrymen will tear out breakfast after the first ten kilometers. Shoot, yes, from her and her weapons, even without dinner, into a thrill.

          The military prosecutor's office has a commander, and only he is always to blame. The only thing since it has come to the prosecutor's office, either the winners are not judged, or the dead do not have shame. So that you do not plunge into the discussion, I will say, this is from my own experience. The ancestors also said - "... do not stick to the regulations like walls ..) Something like this .... When the infantry does not have attached tanks and artillery, and the task must be completed, it" prays "for the weapons of BMPs and AGSs .... ..

            If you had read the question to which the answer sounds, then there would be no need to mention the personal experience of communication with the prosecutor. To which I will answer - not only you have such experience. By the way, the winners are judged. And there may be plenty of reasons for this, because no one can ever prove what the price of victory is sufficient, if at least something is paid for it.

        All this is correct, Artyom! BUT! So it was "at the dawn" of the formation of the BMP, as a class of armored vehicles SV. Everything was clear: armored personnel carriers - wheeled, less often tracked BM, which serves to deliver infantry to the battlefield and support by fire (from a "respectful" distance). And therefore - nothing more powerful than a large-caliber machine gun, as it were, does not need it. BMP is tracked BM, directly involved in the battle together with tanks (including and with a leisurely landing), and therefore has cannon-machine gun e weapons (and sometimes ATGMs), and embrasures for firing troops ...,
        Alas! The evolution of armored vehicles has led to a complete blurring of this "fine line". Modern armored personnel carriers often have machine-gun armament and anti-tank systems, and their armor is often not inferior to BMPs!
        Here's an example:

        So figure out WHAT it is: either a heavy armored personnel carrier (as it is qualified in Israel itself), or a heavy infantry fighting vehicle?
        Try to figure out who is in the photo below the BMP, and who is the APC ?!

        How is it? But the collage has both BMPs and armored personnel carriers!
        Well, and then there is also MRAP "fit in ... So it seems clear: just an armored truck with increased mine resistance ... But in this version:

        Well, why aren't you an APC ???

        PS In general, it's a difficult topic ... I'm afraid I'll have to write an article ... recourse

          Cool, just below our Israeli friend called this unit a bus for delivering infantry to the battlefield. So even the creators themselves have no understanding. However, this does not change the essence - the transporter and the combat vehicle, and if they do not differ in armor, then in weapons and the ability to fight from the inside are different.

            Look at the bottom row of the photo: there is the Italian BMP "Freccia" on the far right, and the Italian armored personnel carrier SUPERAV on the far left !!! The weight is almost the same, the armament is the same .... WHAT is the difference? The fact is that SUPERAV also exists in the "completely unarmed" version !!!
            PS Artem, it was not in vain that I made a collage!
            PPS By the way: the majority of modern and promising BM (both armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles) do not have embrasures at all for firing an airborne assault force (unlike their predecessors (both armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles), such - have had!)

            Well, why not BMP? The cannon is there, the embrasures are also there !!!

        What school did you graduate from (at least in terms of profile) and what position did you reach, if not a secret? Regulatory documents provide for such a thing - the combat order of the unit. So in this battle formation there is a place for both the BMP and the armored personnel carrier. So forget about abbreviations. If even a slingshot is installed on the machine, then there will be a place for it in the battle formation.

      Initially, it was conceived that the 2A72 would be used to combat light armored vehicles, and the 2A70, due to the Arkan ATGM, to fight tanks. But both the LBT and the tanks have increased their security over 40 years, their armor penetration has hit the ceiling, and now they are returning to the "automatic cannon + ATGM" scheme.

          For the new LME is not enough or enough end-to-end, while the "Arkan" it rested on the caliber of the gun and the size of the rocket. Individual ATGMs have much more armor penetration reserves.

            By the way, all Kurgan-Boomerangs are also armed with modules with 30mm cannons ..

                In the navy? BOPS? Why is that? In the navy, anti-aircraft guns are just the main high-explosive fragmentation projectile.
                New platforms with 2A42 is an intermediate demo version.

                well, not a fact. Wait and see.
                In the series they will be with 2A91 or LSHO-57

                2A91 in my opinion is very vryatli
                LSHO-57 - wait and see. It looks interesting, but they screwed up a little there with that combat module.

                  In the navy? BOPS? Why is that?

                  For the initiation of warhead anti-ship missiles, for example. And all the same, it will be necessary to leave from 30 mm. In the second line, he will still live, but in general it is time to look to the future.

                    With the T-15, it is not yet known when in any quantity. It was not initially planned for mass production, and with the pace of deliveries it will probably be generally a piece goods. And there are no guarantees that it will go into production with the 2A91. And according to rumors, not everything is going smoothly with 2A19 itself ...

                    Kurganets and Boomerang, in general, should be mass machines in the future. But first, again, the same rate of supply, at which the old machines will remain in service for a long time. Secondly, there is no ready-made excellent single cannon for the new technology, then they may well go into series with 2A42.

        But both the LBT and the tanks have increased their security over 40 years, their armor penetration has hit the ceiling, and now they are returning to the "automatic cannon + ATGM" scheme.

        You just need to add the Kornet ATGM in armored casings on the sides. Although, of course, the 57-mm cannon + ATGM is better.

      You asked the correct question. Such armament tempts to send the vehicle into battle on the front lines, and this is death for her. The 30-mm cannon is guaranteed to hit the vehicle in any projection, and the 14.5-mm cannon in the sides and stern.

          Brad, in TTX and TTZ on BMP Bradley clearly scored KPVT! The car in any projection was not supposed to break through with a 14,5 mm machine gun. And when ours put a 30mm cannon on the BMP, the Bradley BMP had to be weighed down with additional armor, from which its weight approached the weight of light tanks and the desired buoyancy went into minus forever, like the Merkava's cross-country ability in the European theater of operations with its almost 70 ton weight with all the bells and whistles ... combat weight Bradley5 = 34,5 tons! For comparison, the weight of the T-90 is 46 tons

      30-mm is no longer enough to confidently defeat enemy infantry fighting vehicles in the frontal projection. But the 100-mm can penetrate any NATO BMP, and besides, it also has a decent high-explosive effect for firing at fortifications, with the support of its infantry.

            I understand that YOU are not kicking, and therefore I am telling you. The number of Akhzarit is limited by the number of tanks kindly supplied by the USSR, and today they are actively being removed from service. Namer at the Merkava base is actively replenishing its ranks. There is also the most protected in the world armored personnel carriers Nagmashen and Puma.
            M113 apply EXCLUSIVELY as all-terrain vehicles, they are armed with a machine gun for self-defense like jeeps and are not allowed close to the front line. By the way, its permeability is excellent, it is cheap and not whimsical, although it is outdated. Eitan is their replacement.

              If we assume the generally accepted maximum reservation parameter of the Namer is 800mm and the maximum armor penetration parameter of the Arcana is 750 mm, then, with a high degree of probability, nothing)) If we take into account the work of Trophy, then the defeat is even more unlikely. The name is a very specific armored personnel carrier, absolutely not massive

              When transferring troops, people inside the car can stay for hours, therefore, when building a car, you need to focus on comfort in movement, and not on embarkation and disembarkation, which takes seconds. Embarkation and disembarkation are important, but not so much as to make the layout of the machine based on this.
              BMP-3, thanks to the rear engine, are well balanced, therefore, besides everything else (good forehead protection, smooth running, etc.), they behave well in water, unlike BMP-1 and BMP-2, which, when underloaded, burrow their nose.

                    strange decision. Usually, torsion bars are installed only on cars of the economy segment due to their lightness, simplicity and low cost. Premium (rollers, Bentleys or Maybachs) completely hydropneumatic.

                    that's it. Not the BMP was created under the terms of reference, but the terms of reference were prescribed under the BMP, in order to somehow push into the troops this miracle, which was originally created as a support tank (in fact, it still is). Modern "managers" can smoke on the sidelines.

                    I had to serve until Serdyukov and I found all his reforms. The satisfaction of the servicemen under him increased significantly, supply and manning improved much, not just tinted, but new equipment went to the troops under him, it was Serdyukov who allocated money to develop everything that is now customary to frighten NATO soldiers.

            ATGM itself is a morally outdated concept. It is long overdue to transform it into the UR of the battlefield. Modular. So that you can collect various options from Baby to Hermes according to your capabilities. And preferably a vertical start. But while the military-industrial complex will mature to such a point, you can carry ordinary Cornets in armored casings on the tower. Although their vulnerability will be high. Anyway.
