Modernization of BMD

On the website of public procurement published another tender of the Ministry of Defense. Overhaul with the upgrade of the 135 airborne assault vehicles from the BMD-1 version in the BMD-2 and BMD-2К is planned.

BMD-2, BMD-2K should provide the resource set in the amount of warranty operating time (3000 km of run, 500 m / h of engine operation), warranty period of operation (5 years) or 5 air strips within the warranty time.

From the differences from the old versions of the BMP-2 in the upgraded car, we can note the presence of the radio station P-168-25У-2, the weapon stabilizer 2-36-6.
According to the published price, upgrading one machine will cost no more than 14 636 290 rubles. The calculation was made on the basis of the commercial proposal of Volgograd Machine-Building Company VgTZ LLC, engaged in the development and manufacture of landing craft.

Some kind of strange logic is coming out of our MO ... BMD-4M means it doesn’t suit him at all, but BMD-2 comes out that will fit perfectly! I understand that BMD-4М are more expensive than T-90А and they should be ordered from scratch, but forgive me, then why all these “Makarov’s” ranting about the fact that Kurgan didn’t fulfill or overfulfilled if the generals are sorry for the extras a penny to get a truly modern, efficient and safe fighting machine? With such a logic, there’s nothing to wait for the "Kurganza" - it will rise even more expensive ... so let's be honest, and say that we don’t actually care about the life of a soldier, do not care about the combat and technical characteristics, say that it’s banal for us to waste money with a great reason for arranging your own general retirement pension somewhere in Corsica ...

And here is a photo of how the BMD-1 is being repaired and rebuilt to the level of BMD-2 at VgTZ (thanks to Sergey Kuznetsov for the photo)

      When will the 4m finally go to the troops ??? Shamanov himself said that half of the BMD in his troops simply didn’t shoot. Modernization is good, but bmd2 no longer meets the spirit of the times! Where is 4m?

        There were military institutes in the USSR, they received intelligence data, accumulated their own experience, analyzed the economic background and developed the performance characteristics of new equipment, determined its number.
        Unfortunately, all military science has been lost in our country. Generals ordering equipment - they point a finger at the sky, or are guided by their own financial interests. :(

        Yes, there will be 4M in the troops. Last year, the Ministry of Defense refused to purchase this machine. Okay, even though the old ones decided to repair.
        In general, of course, nonsense. Converting "Kurganets" into a vehicle for paratroopers when the BMD-4 exists. Correctly the author said not the fact that it will be cheaper, but even more doubts about the account!

        PS. In the pictures the state of the workshops is happy / No offense to the Ukrainians but can not be compared with the photos of the Kharkov factory!

        MO had the prudence not to buy an intermediate car. Yes BMD-4M is good, but she
        1 At a price more expensive than the T-90A shopping mall is not in the series
        2 She is an intermediate option
        3 Not mastered in series.
        Yes, the landing needs new armor, but you need to wait for Kurgan!

          Yes, they do not care about any unification and the nishtyaks associated with it, the rake forged in the USSR (c) forum fighters do not teach anything.

            Varnaga and leon-iv I completely agree with you. Everything was removed from the language. They are like little children in a toy store, and I saw everything, I want!

        Where is 4m?

        In my opinion, the article answered:
        so let's be honest, and say that the soldiers themselves do not give a damn about life, do not give a damn about the combat and technical characteristics, let's say that we are banally sorry for the money that can be spent with a great deal on arranging our own general pension from somewhere in Corsica ...

      Yes, the point is not that it is to remove another 135 vehicles from the airborne armament and send them for revision, instead of purchasing BMD 4. And this is now when the situation is unpredictable. God forbid that it’s not Leon, not Vrnaga, not Esaul on the site will not, all the cheers patriotism under the beds will lie, and yell about the urgent purchase of modern weapons.

    Most likely the price of the issue, and the troubles are less with bmd2 everything has been worked out and in the future the rate is placed on the Kurgan.

    The deployment of mass production of equipment is several years and a lot, a lot of money. Theoretically, if all citizens who advocate BMD 4 agree to pay for the education of children, for their maintenance in kindergartens, refuse pension and all benefits, then it will be possible to throw the released money on BMD 4. (Joke).
    Let's be realistic, from BMD 1 there is only an armored housing, the filling is mass-produced, universal areas can be used for assembly. In the context of a tight budget deficit and soon the emergence of new platforms, the actions are justified.

      I beg of you! What dUfsit !? For example, 20 billion US dollars were spent on the APEC forum. And now Pupkin's arithmetic: we divide $ 20000000000 by $ 1000000 (price of 1 BMD-4) = 20000 pieces. And you are dufsite-duvsit ...

    Spent 20 billion on mineral water for delegates? There, in fact, they made cases for their university, with display classes and other stuffing. You will understand the issue first. Everything that spent this money should be on the government procurement website.

      And he (university) is needed there at all? How many people live there? Who will they teach? The Chinese? Isn't it bold for 20 billion per Chinese?
