The Ministry of Defense announced the delivery of modernized BMP-1AM "Basurmanin" to the troops

A large batch of modernized BMP-1AM infantry fighting vehicles will go into service with motorized rifle units of one of the combined arms armies of the Eastern Military District. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


The upgraded BMP-1AM "Basurmanin" will go into service with the motorized rifle unit stationed in the Jewish Autonomous Region in the first half of February. The number of cars is not reported, but it is noted that the batch will be large. In the subdivisions, the new infantry fighting vehicles will replace the already obsolete BMP-1s, which are currently in service with motorized riflemen.

As emphasized in the press service, the BMP-1AM version is considered one of the best options for upgrading the BMP-1. The BMP-1AM was first shown in 2018. In the same year, Uralvagonzavod announced the development of a large-scale modernization program for the existing BMP-1 fleet to the BMP-1AM level. According to open sources, the units and formations of the Russian army have several hundred BMP-1s, and several thousand more are in storage.


In the West, the BMP-1AM was called the "budget replacement" for the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle. The outdated 73-mm gun "Thunder", which no longer meets modern requirements for combating NATO military equipment, is being replaced by new weapons.

During the modernization of the BMP-1 to the version of the BMP-1AM "Basurmanin", the vehicle receives a unified fighting compartment from the BTR-82A with a 30-mm 2A72 automatic cannon, a 7,62-mm PKTM machine gun. The BMP is equipped with a fire control system with a combined all-day anti-aircraft sight TKN-4GA-01, a two-plane weapon stabilizer and anti-tank guided weapons ATGM 9K115 "Metis". In addition, the UTD-20S1 engine and torsion shafts of increased energy intensity are installed on the new BMP.

    I would like to remind you that Russia is in fact a secular, but at the same time a multi-confessional state, and this is enshrined in Art. 14 of the Constitution. Those who come up with such names make a split, because "basurman" literally sounds like a non-Christian faith.

          On the one hand, dissonant and incorrect. On the other hand, if the Muslim warriors received their own common name, then the Russian army got a very serious opponent of "the times of the Ochakovskys and the conquest of the Crimea." Even in "Borodino": "... and the infidels retreated, then we began to count the wounds, count the comrades." Those. respect for a strong and stubborn warrior who practices Islam, even the Napoleonites were compared with them.
          Although, I would not give such a name. It is not good to name something according to nationality or religion.

            Basurmanin means GENTIER (foreigner), i.e. someone of another faith .... There is NO emphasis on a particular faith .. It can be a pagan ..

                  Here, only, the joke is that there are no Jews in the Jewish Autonomous Region. For the rest, well, they called the machine gun "Pecheneg", why is "Basurmanin" more offensive?

                    There is a little.) According to 2010 data, 1600 people out of 160 thousand of the total population. That is, one percent.) Although, indeed, the question is what is the meaning of the existence of autonomy. I still understand HMAO. There are also Khanty and Mansi one and a half percent of the population, 30 thousand out of 1 million 200 thousand of the total population of the district. But the Khanty and Mansi have been living there since time immemorial.
                    Although, as far as I know, the Russian majority of the population opposes the liquidation of the JAO as a subject of the Russian Federation and the transformation into one or more municipalities. People are afraid that in this case it will become a backwater of the Khabarovsk Territory, to which the hands of the authorities will not reach. It seems to me that the best compromise option is to return to the Khabarovsk Territory, but with the status of a subject of the federation as an autonomous region or an autonomous district. An acceptable option, but a little worse, is to enter the region as a territory with a special status, but without maintaining the status of a subject of the federation, following the example of the Evenki municipal district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Although in all cases the question will arise - why autonomy or a special status of the Russian territory in terms of the national composition, in which the percentage of the Russian population is one of the highest in the Russian Federation.) There is another option for transforming it into a regular region. But it will be too small in terms of population by all-Russian standards and too small in terms of territory by Siberian-Far Eastern standards.
                    The same peculiar subject of Khakassia. 12% of the Khakass clearly cannot dominate the republic. Only in one of the districts of the republic, Khakasses make up slightly more than 50% of the population. The situation is similar in Karelia. And it would seem that to abolish the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, the Jewish Autonomous Region, the republics of Khakassia and Karelia, and even a few other subjects means to offend the peoples by whose name they are named and who (with the exception of the Jews) are indigenous to this territory. On the other hand, these republics and autonomies are of little use to these ethnic groups.

                      The percentage is due to the reasons for the creation of the JAO. (Joke, if anything)
                      By a decree of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks, the Jewish Autonomous Region was created. And Jewish settlers were sent there en masse to create collective farms there and develop the territory. A month after the first settlers were sent to the Central Committee, a radiogram came from there. content: "We got there normally period Collective farms created period Send collective farmers period"

The Pecheneg machine gun is a formidable weapon for the enemy, like a Pecheneg! Basurmanin is ... a non-believer, a foreigner! To call weapons a non-believer, a foreigner? Fir-trees, but for me, the Pecheneg machine gun will be more tolerant than the Inoverets infantry fighting vehicle!

              Here you go! This is a military-political saig, not a philological one. repeat But the "term" under discussion came from the word "Muslim", it's just that the serfs recruited into the army did not differ in literacy. And Muslims were called infidels without any humiliation, just as they heard. But over time, it was passed on to all non-Christians and foreigners. The Turks, in particular and their other allies, have shown themselves to be a strong, respectable adversary, i.e. sunk into the soul, they are remembered. And then any other, with unfriendly intentions, began to be called that.
              So your comment and mine just complement each other.

              And since our state is secular and natural infidels serve in our Army and law enforcement agencies, it is not shameful to call the BMP as such.

              But besides the name itself, the BMP-1AM also has a function - a proven model for mobilizing obsolete BMP-1s at storage bases to quickly replenish / increase the number of armored vehicles.
              And such a BMP-1AM is no longer for combat, but as a well-armed tracked armored personnel carrier.
              If you need to quickly equip new formations of your own Army and the armies of your allies, here is such a fairly budgetary upgrade option that will allow you to quickly saturate new formations with equipment and weapons. There are several thousand of them at the storage bases (although there are more BMP-2s), so the good does not go to waste.

        Everything can be.
        In 2014, a consolidated corps of the CSTO forces was to be formed - a permanent military formation to stop crisis situations in the region.
        Each of the participating countries was supposed to provide / delegate its own contingent, the Russian Federation was supposed to provide weapons and equipment (!), Organize the training of command personnel and general leadership.
        Perhaps under that program the modernization of the BMP-1AM was created - inexpensively, angrily and conveniently to maintain and operate.
        The ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Syria are also a reason for the interest of these states in the purchase of inexpensive, familiar, but quite effective equipment. Or the modernization of their own armored vehicles for this project.
        Beyond the Ocean (Atlantic) - poor countries such as Nicaragua, Cuba, etc., are also interested in inexpensive, efficient and easy-to-use equipment.
        Africa!
        There, in general, blacks with Russian flags are worn - the French colonialists are being kicked out. It will be just right for them too.
        So "Basurman" for the Basurmans (because the French were the same for our ancestors in 1812).

          And what now to do with Ukraine? It would be better then in 2014, the CSTO forces tried to reason with the junta using the request of Yanukovych.
          Now every day Boryspil (and not only) receives almost a dozen heavy aircraft from the USA and Britain.
          Even if the war does not start now and the conflict in the Donbas freezes over for a certain time, what will happen to Ukraine in six months or a year and beyond with such a pumping of weapons and money from the West?
          Today they bring ATGMs and so on. But if tomorrow they bring air defense systems, operational-tactical missiles and deploy their combat aircraft at Ukrainian airfields?

          It turns out that if everything is left as it is, then even (even if there is no war now) in the near future Ukraine will become a very serious military threat to our territory.
          That's what it means to hit an operational-tactical missile in some Voronezh thermal power plant when it's minus 20 outside?
          A city with a million inhabitants remains without electricity and heating.

              With a reserve of energy supply, not everything is so simple - if there is one thermal power plant or another power plant (even a nuclear power plant) in the city, then access to the external energy system exists only through its switchgear.
              That is, if a rocket gets there, the power plant will not only stop, but those consumers that are powered by it via one-way lines will not receive a reserve.
              At nuclear power plants, there are backup diesel engines for this.
              But in any case, being left without heating is also not very pleasant when there is a deep minus outside.

              Now further. Ukraine today actually officially abandoned the Minsk agreements.
              And now the whole world is discussing that the Russian authorities for 7 years of these agreements were simply fooled by the junta. And she pulled out and is pulling out time, arming herself and strengthening herself.

And what, in warehouses and storage bases BMP-2 no longer left? If the only goal is to increase the combat effectiveness of motorized rifle units (armed with obsolete equipment), then wouldn’t it be easier and cheaper to simply replace the BMP-1 with the repaired BMP-2?
      Although, on the other hand, the ability to quickly increase the combat power of outdated, in armament, but quite serviceable vehicles is very good. Yes, and the export potential of such a program is considerable.

        =====
        There is not a 2A42 (as on the BMP-2), but a weaker 2A72. Neither the combat module nor the BMP-2 itself will pull the 42A1 cannon: it has a slightly larger demon and, most importantly, much stronger recoil. The BMP-2 uses much stronger armor and reinforced suspension! No wonder the designers limited themselves to 2A72 - otherwise it would have required much more serious and expensive changes to be made. And so it turned out: "and cheap and cheerful"!

          This is not true. 2A72 was installed because the size and design of the shoulder strap of the BTR-80 did not allow the installation of a more powerful gun, that's all, no need to invent it. The front plate on the BMP-1 and -2 is the same, by the way. And the torsion bars flew (and sometimes the front rollers) for both cars, because when braking, the car nods due to the front location of the MTO.

            for the same reason, it is impossible to strengthen the armor of the frontal projection of the hull on the BMP-1/2. You can hang a little on the sides, on the tower, but the front end is already heavy, the car begins to nod even more willingly - not only when braking, but also when driving over bumps.

            Firstly: the tower / module is not installed on the VLD, but on the roof (and the sheet is much thinner there!).
            Secondly: the thickness of the sheets there may be the same, but the steel is DIFFERENT! And on the BMP-2 it is much stronger! But this is already critical, since the recoil impulse of the 2A72 is stretched in time (due to automation based on the recoil of the barrel with a long stroke) and its peak the values ​​are almost THREE times less than those of 2A42 (7 tons versus 20 tons).

              In engineering, there is no concept - it’s much stronger - this is couch terminology. If the barrel length and ammunition are the same, then the muzzle energy is the same, and hence the recoil. Therefore, you don’t need to invent any nonsense on the go. The 2A72 barrel is thinner and is designed for less pressure, that’s all .Apparently, excess energy is dumped during the operation of automation. Therefore, go teach physics to the 6th grade.

                Strength is not an abstract concept at all, but quite an engineering one. And there is no need to invent about the design of guns without owning the subject. The 2A42 and 2A72 have different principles of operation of automation, the thickness of the barrel is secondary. And in what physics textbook for the 6th grade is the principle of operation of automatic guns described?

                    For people who have studied physics poorly, I repeat, the principle of operation of automation is different, therefore the return is also different. Because the energy of the shot can be converted into heat by recoil devices or partially compensated by the recoil of the barrel, as in the 2A72 gun.

              Let me disagree on some points. It is unlikely that the BMP-1 has a weaker hull than the BMP-2, especially since it holds the recoil of the 73 mm Thunder gun. Even the hull of the light BMD-2 can handle it, even though the car shakes more when firing. Here they did it, rather, according to the principle of unification with the BTR-82A, they could still be guided by the greater reliability of the 2A72, it has fewer delays when firing.

                  And don't talk about the low recoil from the BMP-1 to me, I have repeatedly observed broken foreheads from a shot in those who did not press against the sight. In the same BMP-2, you have to manage to break the face, there you can only hear the metallic clang from the shot, and in the BMP-1 it was easy to get a hit on the forehead with a sight.

                    Well, did you see those shots? This is a de facto reactive grenade, where the charge in the sleeve is used exclusively to push the grenade out of the barrel, and then, at a distance of 20-40 m from the muzzle, the sustainer engine is turned on.

                    Those. there, the recoil is stretched in time and most of the gases are ejected AFTER the grenade exits the barrel! That is why such a weak recoil force!

            So, where are all these projects? WHY did they all remain projects? Why did you decide to install a turret from the BTR-82 with a 2A72 gun, and not 2A42?
            PS You can install anything you want .... Question: WHAT will be the result? Look, the Poles even managed to cheat on their BMP-1 (BVP-1) 40-mm Bofors:

            And WHAT happened? The car has become heavier by 2.5 tons. Despite even the reinforcements of the hull, when firing at high elevation angles, the top sheet often caved in, "speed and maneuverability worsened, the landing force decreased from 8 to 4-6 people, fuel consumption and engine wear increased, and the ability to to swim!
            I repeat once again: the BMP-1 for the 2A42 cannon is POORLY adapted - serious work will be required to strengthen the hull in the turret ring area, strengthen the chassis, strengthen the chassis, etc. And this will lead to an increase in weight (with all the ensuing consequences). But 2A72 - fits in there without any problems! It is only outwardly that the BMP-1 and BMP-2 differ only in the turret! In fact, there are more differences than you think.

              This is obvious) Because this fighting compartment is simpler and cheaper. You can see for yourself what combat costs - the minimum equipment, with 2A72, without AGS and without ATGMs. In addition, complete unification of BO with the BTR-82A. Only.

              Yes, that’s not the point, they put into operation a working version of the modernization that was ready many years ago. Uninhabited combat modules with a 2A42 cannon have appeared only in recent years, and it is not entirely clear how it is with delays in firing, loading and supplying ammunition. If the problems are resolved, then, perhaps, we will soon see other upgrade options in operation already with the 2A42 gun.
              While I don't like uninhabited modules, there are problems with orientation in space, awareness and elimination of delays when firing. If on an armored personnel carrier the replacement of a tower without a hatch with an uninhabited module does not look inconvenient, then on the BMP-1 the gunner-operator is already losing the hatch on the tower.

            The chassis survived, unfortunately the BMP did not sink, but did not swim either, which led to the abandonment of the project

    We rely on the quantity, not the quality of the BMP. But, as you know, the stingy one pays twice. It would be better to buy new T-15s.

        In one short burst of 30 mm, it turns into scrap metal. I have a feeling that this is done, like an armored personnel carrier on a caterpillar track. Deliver l / s to the place, and fire support from afar. Javelin hits at 2,5 km, and 2A72 at 4. Half a kilometer from the tank as part of a combined arms formation is quite possible. But only in the case of Syria or Ukraine.

          This is all in the spherokon in one short burst. In a real situation, the BMP is rather blind, again saving on surveillance devices. Therefore, Toyota has the advantage of jumping out from where they are not waiting. Of course, if Toyota goes to the cannon and there is a duel, then yes, Toyota has zero chances. However, in life, especially urban battles - everything is not so. And Toyota leaves from some thread of the intersection / blockage for a long line, then hides in the building and takes off again from a completely different place.

          About the fact that 2A72 hits 4 km and shoots Javelin, it generally fell off the chair. And here shooting at a distance - the detection of a target such as the Javelin operator, again, not in a clean contrast field in the thermal sight, in the expected place. Watch a video / photo of the use of armored vehicles in Syria, Armenia, and even in the Donbass, you can dig up a chronicle (but tinder from YouTube) - it’s almost always unclear where it comes from. At a conditional 1,5-2 km, the operator with the Javelin will have the right to fire the first shot.

              The marshal is a couch, in reality, and even in urban combat, a machine gunner on a Toyota will not even have time to attach himself to a machine gun, as a bullet from the nearest shooter with a machine gun will pop. Distances in city blocks rarely exceed 200 meters, at such distances a sedentary figure in full growth is almost like a target on a training ground.

          It is this modernization with this combat module that is not the most perfect option, it was chosen, apparently, for reasons of unification with the BTR-82A. There are modules with an additional automatic grenade launcher, it is with its help that targets similar to the calculation of ATGMs are effectively destroyed at ranges up to or about 2 kilometers.

          Sorry, but it was made in the years when the infantry moved on foot, or in tilt cars, or even open ones. Agree, light rifle armor is better than an awning. The landing force could fire on the move. Where it went is another question. Plus, the BMP is not the main combat unit. Tanks ahead. And behind them, the infantry fighting vehicle hurries the landing and supports it with fire. At the time it was a breakthrough.

Not to mention the fact that pennies go through repair factories, not BMP factories, not to mention the fact that the T-15 has not yet finished testing and has not fully entered mass production .. In fact it’s better to have 300 modernized kopecks than 10 T-15s and 290 BMP-1s with Groms, the only thing that can be put in the negative is the lack of a turret ATGM, although versions of the BPPU with ATGM have already been shown at exhibitions more than once, because the portable Metis is a bit of a perversion

        I hope that this year all tests will finally be completed, including state tests, T-14, T-15, K-16, K-17, and from next year they will all go into mass production. It’s better to produce new ones, than to endlessly modernize the old.
        State tests of an armored personnel carrier and an infantry fighting vehicle based on the Boomerang platform are scheduled to begin in the spring of 2022, Lieutenant Colonel Yuri Chikin, head of the 154th military representative office, said at the Arzamas Machine-Building Plant.

        “The machine has passed preliminary tests with a positive result. Currently, prototypes are being finalized to present them for state tests, which are planned to begin in March - April 2022, ”said the head of the representative office.

        He clarified that "the completion of state tests is planned in November - December next year."

        The military-industrial company developed the K-16 armored personnel carrier and the K-17 infantry fighting vehicle on the Boomerang platform.

        The K-16 armored personnel carrier is equipped with a combat module with a 12,7-mm machine gun, the Boomerang-BM combat module with a 17-mm 2A42 automatic cannon, as well as Kornet anti-tank missile launchers, is installed on the K-30.

      Why equalize a heavy promising infantry fighting vehicle and the described modernized light class vehicle?
      It has been written more than once for "some civilians" that different tanks and infantry fighting vehicles are needed, different guns are important.
      If it is not clear why, then it is urgently necessary to enter to receive a military education smile
      This upgrade significantly enhances the firepower of the BMP-1 and allows it to be used quite effectively in modern combat. With the right tactics, of course.
      The only thing, my personal opinion, it would be necessary, as far as possible, to strengthen the protection by using shielding and remote sensing, the Shtor system. This, of course, will raise the combat mass, but the most vulnerable places can and should be covered. There is a reserve of engine power on the BMP-1, as well as the forced version of the UTD-20.

      BMP-1AM will probably be possible to knock out from RPG-7.
      Someone will beat. The BMP-1 was not for nothing called the "chariot of the apocalypse", its main task is to transport infantry through the centers of nuclear destruction after the advancing tanks. There, all the grenade launchers evaporated, and the enemy armored vehicles were knocked out by a tank avalanche. If you need a vehicle that can hold an RPG, then make it for your needs, and do not use the BMP-1.
      For example, I have a poor idea of ​​​​tasks under the T-15. It is a bad idea to carry infantry to where anti-shell armor is required, they will die there. Just transporting infantry on such a chassis is expensive, instead you can buy a dozen and a half MCIs - and they will transport (by road) more and operation will come out cheaper. If you fight on it, then it’s better to make a tank for the same money: combat power is much higher, and there are much fewer corpses in case of defeat.

            I was always surprised by this so-called characteristic of the type: "t-72" is designed for 15 minutes of combat.
            What does it give you, as the commander of a tank battalion? Or we think like this - I have 20 tanks, the adversary has 26, we apply the coefficient and voila!? Must win!

              So this is what they are. Obsolete norms. Then they still planned a total frontal war of the ATS and NATO divisions. Everyone had huge armies, and in such a war, based on such realities, the life expectancy of the T-72 was calculated. Remember how long the average life of a soldier lasted in battles for Stalingrad. Now no one has such gigantic armies. Now there are modern drones and there should be other calculations.

            Norms are general numbers. What can the war in Karabakh teach?) How did the NKR army simply put the device even on the elementary rules of battle? Every video I've seen is a blatant disregard for everything. From disguise to movement. Modern warfare is static and understandable. There is no significant difference in strategy. But a lot of new tactics. What they have been doing quite seriously for a very long time.

At least they have normal armor. few people care about what will happen to the crew in battle. The main thing is to report on the amount of equipment and put a tick.

      Well, you need to understand that the option is: to supply 5 T-15s for the same money or upgrade 30 BMP-1s to BMP-1AM - which will be more effective, the answer is obvious?
      Another thing is that the T-15 is in any case oh so necessary in the troops.

    According to open sources, the units and formations of the Russian army have several hundred BMP-1s, and several thousand more are in storage.

    It seems to me more and more that the adoption of the Armata is being delayed artificially. On the one hand, we have thousands and thousands of armored vehicles in our warehouses, on the other hand, tank battles in the spirit of WWII are not expected, and supertanks are not particularly needed for local conflicts. So they are modernizing the legacy of the USSR.

          Mistakes. Raw 64 shoved hundreds. The teachings, in my opinion, are 82 years old and all the command is out. More than 70 percent of equipment failure. Combat readiness killed. Will an example work? Rearmament is a very difficult moment. Slim even. Imagine, for example, a battalion. It has been completely refurbished. Everything. Zero readiness. It takes time to accept the technique, study and study. Until that happens, this battalion is just a statistic. T 14 crude. He is ready, but he needs to run in the troops. What they are doing now. After that, he will go to units in strategic directions. In the Far East, if he appears, then after many years. He's just redundant.

            The point is that, in principle, they do not seek to put new armored vehicles into service - of course, a tank or infantry fighting vehicle is not a bicycle, but it is not a cruiser either, so the running-in process really looks drawn out.

Having received new vehicles, he is in a transitional state for some time, but then his combat readiness sharply increases compared to the original one. However, if new machines are not supplied, then he will not master them.

        So it is - a thermal imager, a 30-mm gun, etc. the essence is a new bridle on the old nag in the old BULLET-RESISTANT body. Russia has a lot of obsolete T-72 tanks in stock. So they need to be used for conversion into heavy infantry fighting vehicles in the same way as the Israeli Akhzarit, for maximum protection of the infantry and crew. And weapons are already in second place in terms of the importance of characteristics. In all the armies of the world exactly the same trend.
        And on the roof of the hull, you can install the Epoch module with more powerful and long-range

            They threw out the old Soviet diesel engine and installed a more compact and powerful American one. And in the rear of the hull they arranged a manhole hatch for landing infantry. Was it really difficult to type into the search engine - the Akhzarit armored personnel carrier and look at the pictures from all angles and read the information? Capacity -3 crew and 7 people. landing.

                This is what I called a new bridle for an old nag. Not only the hull is outdated, but also the gun and, especially, the anti-tank systems.
                The tank corps is not crap at all. Instead of a discarded turret, there is still an opportunity to strengthen it with additional armor packages.

                and who will develop and implement a new engine, a new lineup?

                The game is worth the candle. Repackaging isn't the biggest problem. All you need is a different, really new engine. Or have they already forgotten how to do it? For the "Kurganets" could they? But even he will be inferior in terms of armoring the "tank" BMP.

                because there is also a financial issue.

                This is what was put at the forefront instead of the security of personnel.
                But the use of T-72/90 tanks and such infantry fighting vehicles on the same platform will greatly facilitate the logistics of formations. And this is also money.

                I think that the Jews will not agree with you. According to the experience of their conflicts with the Arabs, these machines perfectly hold RPG shots. As for armor-piercing shells, I can only add that additional armor packages hung in the bow of the hull increase armor resistance even higher than that of a tank. Plus a lower silhouette.
                Combat weight - 44 (forty-four !!!) tons.

                So what ?! The BMP T-15 has a combat weight of 55 (fifty-five !!!!) tons.

                So maybe instead of ONE monstrous "Akhzarit" - bring / transfer THREE BMP-1?!

                These are not airborne vehicles. This is a technique for "heavy" assault motorized infantry. And light "wedges" are not suitable for this role.
                I'll add more. It is easier for vehicles (tanks and infantry fighting vehicles) on the same platform to interact in battle. I recall the story of one tank officer, commander of a tank company, who served in the GSVG (GDR), who described to me exercises on the interaction of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. So, in his words, light infantry fighting vehicles "jumping across the plowed field like frogs" simply did not keep up with the heavy "irons" - tanks. And they had to slow down, so as not to break away from motorized riflemen. And this is a delay in the pace of the offensive, if anything. But not only that, when the command was given to "dismount" the landing, the infantry literally fell out of the airborne squad with pale green faces from motion sickness (and some even "threw grubs" through their mouths), which had a bad effect on the combat readiness of the personnel.

                    That's right - the RPG-7 and similar foreign counterparts are still the most popular weapons in the arsenal of terrorists of all stripes (the main enemy of our army in recent conflicts). And heavy infantry fighting vehicles with thick, multi-layered and spaced armor, with DZ modules resist these shots very well (I don’t mention KAZ).
                    There is an article on "VO" with "Analysis of the armor (you mentioned) of the Abrams tank." Here are some data on armor resistance (if you are talking about the current level).

                    That is, not a single Russian tank will break through his forehead. The Merkava has protection at about the same level.
                    I repeat once again: the hull of tanks converted into infantry fighting vehicles is strengthened by the removal of the turret by installing additional armor. That is, armor resistance is even higher than that of a tank. The probability of survival of the infantry and crew behind such armor is many times higher than in the BMP-1/2, which can simply be riddled with heavy machine guns. And if you get hit by a high-explosive fragmentation projectile (yes, just nearby it exploded) does not leave the infantry any chance of survival.
                    Other advantages that I wrote about above: the presence of one platform makes it easier for the rear services of the MTO connections and the interaction of tanks with motorized infantry.

                        I don’t understand what kind of hypothetical large-scale war do you mean? What about the West? Or with China? So, neither with those nor with others, our Russia has NO chances in such a war. Neither by economic, nor by demographic, nor by military factors. If suddenly such a war happens, then we have only one "lifesaver" - tactical special ammunition. Only the presence of these weapons deters NATO from aggression against our country. Therefore, they are preparing and pushing their limitrophe puppets, such as Georgia and Ukraine, to make war with Russia. It is against them that we need effective conventional weapons. For example, we will never be able to produce the same Su 57 in the same quantities as the US produces its F-35s. And if the entire collective West joins its production, and even more so. Therefore, it is enough for the Russian Aerospace Forces to have only a limited number of these aircraft in service. But it is enough to put in place the "outgrown" limitrophes and other terrorist groups that have lost their shores. The same applies to other types of weapons. To date, our most dangerous potential adversary is Ukraine. About 40 million propagandized Russophobic population, 250 thousand army (and soon more than 300 thousand) supplied with Western weapons. It is clear that they will not last long against Russia, but they will do a lot of trouble.

        You can read here "Weapon stabilizers 2E36. Design and maintenance": https://portalnp.snauka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/KUDRYAVTSEV-GUMELEV-SV-2E36.pdf

      in this modification of MB2 it is not there, there is probably an error in the text of the note.
      Although in reality there are combat modules from the same line and the same manufacturer with both AGS and Konkurs ATGMs.
      For example, the fighting compartment MB2-05 (30-mm 2A42, PKTM, ATGM "Konkurs", 902V "Cloud", electromechanical two-plane weapon stabilizer, all-day sight TKN-4GA)

      The text of the article states:
      The BMP is equipped with a fire control system with a combined all-day anti-aircraft sight TKN-4GA-01, a two-plane weapon stabilizer and anti-tank guided weapons ATGM 9K115 "Metis"

      However, "Competitions" were put on the BMP / BMD.

    Due to such misanthropic armor, but good mobility, as for me, the BMP-1 has only two ways:
    1. conversion into a multifunctional conveyor, like MTLB.
    2. Insert a 2-barreled breech-loading 120mm mortar, add a quadric, leave 3 crew members (driver, commander, drone operator), throw on them hinged ceramic armor so that they hold 30mm in the forehead.

        I think that the probability of this event is very low. Why? At least for the reason that the machine is extremely unsuitable for remote control. Don't forget, the BMP-1 is an old car, from the 60s. There are no electronics in it, there is a little bit of electromechanics. What does this mean? That the car will need to be equipped with a whole bunch of sensors and actuators (gear shifting, engine control, etc.). Very difficult and not cheap. The game will not be worth the candle.

          My guess is just a guess with some degree of possibility. Moreover, there are several more options for drones - a hidden firing point and transport for combat drones.

                  This is when the program is exactly what is "launched from above". But in this case, this is the initiative work of the factory design bureau. Well, for example, the same "Iskander" did not get its name "from above".

                    As a rule, the customer announces R&D. In the design bureau, of course, initiative work can be carried out, but the labor costs must be attributed somewhere. Therefore, they often take a similar topic and write it off. For example, before the activation of work on the OTRK you indicated, the Iskander research project of 1978 was carried out - two Tochka OTRs at the Oki SPU.
                    But in the civilian sphere, the Design Bureau is free to name its topics and products whatever you like. In the civil sphere and in the sphere of the military-industrial complex, there are significant differences, both in terms of the principles for constructing work and in paying for them, as well as the owners of design documentation are different (the documentation for military-industrial complex products belongs to the Customer, the design bureau is only a calc holder, in the civil sphere the owner of the documentation is the design bureau)

                      The origins of the development of the complex can be attributed to the Iskander research project, which has been carried out since 1978. On the subject of research work, the possibility of placing two OTR class OTR 9M79 "Point" on the SPU similar to the SPU complex 9K714 "Oka". The main goal is to create an OTR with a range of up to 400 km to replace the 9K72 complex with an 8K14 missile with increased combat performance, as well as to ensure guaranteed destruction of especially important targets by two missiles. According to unconfirmed reports, Research work "Iskander" was terminated in the first half of the 1980s at the stage of testing the aiming system and missile control systems.


                      It is possible that the name was thought up "at the top", but, as you understand, R&D in 1978 is not the right topic.

                      But the current project "Iskander" in its original form was launched at KBM precisely on its own initiative on the personal order of the chief designer S.P. in the sense that, in spite of enemies and fools, he will make a rocket that flies exactly 1987 km and ... well ... you won’t do anything with it. State. The theme received funding only in 500.
                      And Iskander M, this is a topic already in the 90s, it has been going on since 1993.

    Some kind of miserable modernization ...... they would make auxiliary vehicles out of them: anti-tank systems, reconnaissance, medical, etc.

      The car is old, you can't get a plane out of it, at least kill yourself. This modernization turned out to be the most budgetary, as the goal was set. Suitable for inland areas. And for the outer contour there is BMP-3 and heavier and more modern vehicles.

              So I said, the requirement for the project was - minimal costs. Since it makes no sense to seriously remake the BMP-1.

        Do you think that the inner districts can be armed, excuse me, with all sorts of rubbish? Is it not destined to master new technology there at all? Non-border districts are a mobile reserve, it is they who will represent the replenishment in case of loss of forward units. Can you imagine replenishment on BMP-1 and tanks like T-62 and T-72A? No, gentlemen, it's time to remove these vehicles from combat units. Make tractors, repair, medical, and other auxiliary ones out of them, if it's so unfortunate to write off. But they have nothing to do in the line. I would also understand if there was a large-scale war and such ersatz equipment would go to make up for huge losses - but in peacetime?

        Any upgrade must also be assessed in terms of efficiency/cost. It would seem that "Basurmanin" caught up with the "deuce" on paper? But only on paper. The BMP-2 has a double turret and better observation and aiming devices. In the combat module, what was put on the BMP-1AM - one operator. The capabilities for searching and hitting targets are completely different, despite the seemingly similar composition of weapons.
        We now have a considerable number of much more recent BMP-2s in storage - why are we messing with the BMP-1?

            BMP 1 more

            I am sure that hundreds of thousands of PPS, PPSh, Mosin carbines, Maxim machine guns still lie in our warehouses of the mobile reserve ... We don’t arm combat units with them, do we?
            How many BMP-2s do we have, including those in storage? About 4,5 thousand. "Troek" is still about half a thousand. BMP-1 yes, there are many in storage - but storage is different. These cars are very old, how many of them are in more or less good condition?
            Is this number (5 thousand) not enough? Moreover, everyone understands that even the "two" is outdated and does not meet modern requirements, not to mention the BMP-1.
            Moreover, the described modernization of the BMP-1 is a capital and a replacement for almost everything. What is left of the base machine in the end? Hull, rollers and landing chairs? I am not against modernization as such, but I am for justified, reasonable actions. The modernization potential of any device has limits. Maybe it would be wiser to modernize the "twos" by installing the Berezhok BO and additional armor on them and purchasing new BMP-3s, since things are not going well with the Kurganets?

          No. But even the USSR with its colossal military-industrial complex could not evenly equip the motorized rifle units of the BMP. Therefore, the inevitable situation will be when some units will be forced to equip the BMP-1. Well, is it better to leave it as it is with outdated weapons or give a new one, equal in characteristics to the BMP-2?

    The BMP is equipped with a fire control system with a combined all-day anti-aircraft sight TKN-4GA-01, a two-plane weapon stabilizer and anti-tank guided weapons ATGM 9K115 "Metis".

    The existing ATGM 9K115 "Metis" can only be used in a remote version. It is to be hoped that this problem will be resolved in the near future.

      Will not be. If you didn’t put it right away, then you shouldn’t wait in the future. "Metis" can only be used with a fixed launcher. And for the "Cornets" you need an appropriate sight with LLKU. "Basurmanin" is an extremely budgetary modernization of the BMP-1 in anticipation of re-equipment with a new generation of BMPs.

    Everything is really so bad that the BMP-1 is being upgraded instead of being replaced ???
    According to Wikipedia (such a thing, but what data is there) about 1500 BMP-2s are in storage - at least they couldn’t be restored in any way, or even equipped with an era?

      As I understand it, the task is to replace the useless "Thunder" with 2-A-42.
      What should be changed in the BMP-2 in this case?

    This modernization of the BMP-1 is a vivid example that there will be no war.
    When a country plans to fight, but there is not enough money, they make an upgrade that will provide the troops with a large number of combat vehicles with maximum capabilities for minimum money. As an option - Ukrainian modernization of the BMP-1 "Spys"

    And "Basurmanin" is when you need to deploy new battalions manned by conscripts. Our Defense Ministry is not ready to trust new modern equipment to conscripts, but restored BMP-1s with minimal modernization are the very thing for one year of service. According to Russian law, recruits cannot be sent into battle, but they must be trained.

    Many states in the US are named after Indian tribes. Interestingly, the Indians who do not live there are very offended by this?

    there were so many expectations that they would start installing modules with a 57 mm cannon, and now those times, we are marking time again. Those that already have 30mm should continue to be in service. Those with thunder would have immediately gradually changed to 57

    I agree that the modernization of military equipment is needed, but it must be meaningful, really enhancing its combat capabilities and extending its service life. In addition, nothing is reported about increasing the insufficient protection of the BMP from enemy fire.

    I think it is much more likely that the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics will receive this BMP-1 variant than the BMP-2. This seems like a good upgrade for corps that have lost their main weapon for some reason. If I'm not mistaken, the production of the BMP-2 turret ceased along with the production of the project. Instead, the turret of the BTR-82 variant remains in production.

    According to publicly available data on production and exports (including to other former Soviet Republics), a small number of BMP-1s of all modifications are stored in Russia. Apparently, reports such as the Military Balance tend to overestimate the number of the most obsolete weapons in Russian arsenals, while at the same time tend to underestimate the number of more modern weapons.

    Due to such misanthropic armor, but good mobility, as for me, the BMP-1 has only two ways:
    1. conversion into a multifunctional conveyor, like MTLB.
    2. Insert a 2-barreled breech-loading 120mm mortar, add a quadric, leave 3 crew members (driver, commander, drone operator), throw on them hinged ceramic armor so that they hold 30mm in the forehead.

    What are you carrying, what other ceramic armor :) There is actually an MTO hatch, and even so the nose is heavy due to the engine and transmission. And the bottom will fall off from the mortar shot after the first shot.

    And everything would be fine, but the cardboard armor leaves the BMP no chance.
    Even in Ukraine, old infantry fighting vehicles are trying to at least something to pre-book. Lattices hang, blocks of dynamic armor, boxes with sand. Yes, whatever. But with us: they simply change the turret on the old bare chassis and declare that here is a new thing for you.
    Of course, such an upgrade is better than the old manned BMP-1 turret, but think at least a little about the crew. Give him at least some hope of surviving the fight. Why can’t you think of anything in terms of at least a partial strengthening of the reservation.
    The landing party will somehow pass on the armor, but the crew ...

      Well, yes, it doesn’t pull on a car that goes in the forefront along with tanks with such armor. So that the good would not disappear, auxiliary vehicles would be made on their chassis, such as armored personnel carriers, ammunition transporters for self-propelled guns, an 82 mm mortar, a la "drok", self-propelled counter-battery radars, and so on, which should not come into direct contact with the enemy

    Is it possible to put a more powerful engine on the BMP, which will at least slightly increase the security of the vehicle, increasing the mass to 20 tons and abandoning the unnecessary (in my personal amateurish opinion) ability to swim?
