In Sudan, the development of the BMP "Sharif-2"


The Sudanese Military Industrial Corporation (Military Industry Corporation of Sudan - MIC-Sudan) has completed the development of the Sharif-2 wheeled infantry fighting vehicle (Shareef-2) for the Armed Forces of the country. The company also expects to receive overseas orders for its development.

According to the International Defense Review, the Sharif-2 BMP was created on the basis of the WMZ-551 armored vehicle design with the 6x6 wheel formula of the China North Industrial Corporation NORINCO (China North Industries Corporation), which is also known as Type-92.

The car’s armament is a single turret with an 30-mm cannon and an 7,62-mm machine gun paired with it. The same tower was installed on a number of other Chinese tracked and wheeled platforms. Ammunition guns - 500 ammunition. The electric drive provides the ability to conduct firing in the 360 sector deg., The range of vertical shooting angles from -5 to + 75 deg.

In front of the tower there are six smoke grenade launchers (three on each side). Aft of the HJ-73D “Red Arrow” ATGM launcher of the NORINCO company is located in the aft part, which significantly increases the firepower of the armored vehicle.

An ATGM with a semi-automatic sight-line guidance system (SACLOS) with command transmission by wire is equipped with a tandem cumulative warhead. According to the developers, it is able to overcome at an angle 68 hail. 280 mm conventional armor for dynamic protection. The firing range is 3000 m. The probability of hitting is 90%.

The calculation of the "Sharif-2" consists of a 10 man (three crew members and an 7 troop man). The landing force may fire through the loopholes in the hull under armor protection.

The body of the armored car welded from armor plates provides protection from small arms fire. weapons 12,7 caliber mm. The mass of the basic version of the machine is about 15 tons. The combat weight of the Sharif-2 with a turret is 16,02 tons, the power density is 19,97 hp / t. Cruising range (tank on 400 l) - 800 km, maximum speed on the highway - 100 km / h.

According to the developers, the car is floating and is able to overcome water barriers at a speed of 8 km / h, using a pair of feed propulsion jets.

    Somehow remotely looks like our BRDM, I wonder why they decided to place the landing assault hatches not in the aft compartment, but in the side? after all, the landing force comes under fire, and in the aft version there is shelter behind the vehicle’s body, and while the vehicle is moving, it will somehow dumbly land on the go - hesitated a bit, stumbled under its own wheels (((And there is no mine protection

      To accompany the columns, this location of the hatches is preferable, as a rule, they are fired from the flanks and when the hatches are laterally placed, the landing can leave the car from the direction opposite to the shelling. I think Sudanese do not plan to use this APC as an IFV.

    Probably type 92 is licked from our armored personnel carriers, hence the similarity with the armored personnel carrier 70-80

      It reminds me more of the French BTR VAB
      VAB (fr. Véhicule de l'Avant Blindé - "armored vehicle of the front edge") - French armored personnel carrier. Developed by Renault and Savier companies commissioned by the French army. Serial production of VAB has been going on since 1976; in total, more than 5000 cars of this type were produced in various versions, both on a basic two-axle chassis and on a three-axle one.

    60s level somewhere. Chinese parts. The price is like a Lada. Reliability is the same. Protection against 12.7 with a mass of 15 tons and such dimensions? It is doubtful ... ATGM HJ-73D - 73 is like a year, not bad but outdated thing. For Sudan, not a bad experience. Drive the natives in Affric until they meet Iron Caput belay

    But in general, for Sudan this is a serious achievement - well done!

    I asked the Chinese. Sudan itself did not develop anything. I just bought production from China. Here he is in the Middle Kingdom.

    It’s a pity, Feldmebel Perdukov didn’t wait for this epoch-making event! Otherwise he would have bought it together with the Menstrals! soldier
