      this delivery was carried out under a 2009 agreement for the supply of armored vehicles and a loan of 2,2 billion US dollars allocated to Venezuela

      In total, 123 BMP-3 units were ordered (6 units are now delivered) to 21 delivered in 2011 — the production rate of the Kurganmashzavod is a little depressing (and this is the plant that became famous for the disruption of deliveries of new BMP-2010, BMD3M in 4, and which is going to in droves to produce the platform Kurganets, BMD4M, Shell)


      yes here is an interesting photo (clickable) at the end of last year, the Venezuelan army received SMERCH complexes under the same agreement of 2009

      Venezuela was not talking about Russian power, there was anti-American power, which considered China, Russia and any other state whose interests were similar as allies and partners ... There are a lot of Chinese weapons in the Venezuelan army ...

        Of course you can wink if we pay for all this (as part of an export loan)

        here in the photo the new BTR-80A for the Venezuelan army there have already been shipped more than 100 units. The AMZ is working longer - all this is a pleasure so far at our expense - the only thing that makes me happy is that the enterprises are busy with work!



        PS-PHOTO (clickable) one of the BTR-80A before being sent to the customer undergoes a control (test) shelling from its 30 mm cannon

            typo - I didn’t mean shelling, but shooting for verification and the 30 mm gun’s performance

            and 7,62 caliber bullets - the BTR-80A holds what’s forehead what’s on board


            here is another photo from the creeper (clickable) Btr-80a in Venezuela

            PS- but in general there is a huge list under the agreement, these are T-72, BMP-3, BTR-80A, Nona SVK, Mortars, MSTA-S, BM-21 Grad, Zu-23m, support vehicles, Pechora2m, Bal-e S-300v

    BMP to Venezuela, aircraft to Malaysia, an aircraft carrier to India .... and when will we arm ourselves? Every day, the news was either sold alone, or with a friend, a supply contract was concluded. but the news that new vehicles have arrived in our aircraft appears less frequently.

    Somewhat surprisingly, the BMP-3 in various modifications is sold around the world like hot cakes. Moreover, it is purchased by sufficiently developed and militarily "advanced" countries. But our Ministry of Defense did not need this car. Single deliveries do not count.

      Yes, she did not disperse, as you said!

      A year ago, we discussed its charms and flaws.

      in Venezuela, she follows our swami in the bill, but as they say to a gifted horse, they don’t look

      The BMP-3 was good at the time of its creation, namely, 1987 and remained modern until the mid-90s (therefore, it was purchased in 93 UAE and Kuwait, Cyprus, Korea, but since the designers did not bother to make at least some improvements, it’s already 2013 in the yard the device is not modern at the moment

      The RF Ministry of Defense also came to this realization, which is why a fundamentally new platform called Kurganets is being developed

      What is the benefit? In equipping a small country that is against the US regime? And what can they do in the USA?
      I understand we would have extended nuclear submarines with yao to them. And then the armored personnel carrier. So the benefits are no more than selling to any other country.

    Well, I don’t like modern BMPs, except for German ones. Neither the states, nor the French, nor the Russians, unlike the Germans, were able to create a combination of capacity, protection and firepower. And from the BTR I like the Swedish CV-90 the most.

    BMP-3 is a good car, otherwise the Arabs and Koreans would not have bought it. The price-performance ratio suited them, plus reliability. There were practically no complaints.
    The sight is outdated slightly, the night channel based on the second generation image intensifier tube. But the Chinese even disassembled it ten times, could not copy.
