The landing "Octopus-SD" modernize and unify with BMD-4M

The Volgograd machine-building company VgTZ, a member of the machine-building-industrial group Concern Tractor Plants, began to develop design documentation for the modernization of the 125 mm self-propelled anti-tank gun (SPTP) 2C25 for the airborne forces known as the Sprut-SD. This was reported to the Vestnik Mordovii news agency in the department of strategic communications of the Tractor Plants Concern.


Currently, the leadership of the Ministry of Defense of Russia and the Airborne Forces are preparing to incorporate development work on the modernization of this product into the state defense order, and Volgograd Machine-Building Company, meanwhile, has intensively engaged in the development of the relevant topic.

As part of the modernization, in addition to unification with the BMD-4М on the engine, transmission and chassis, it is planned to install the latest electronics on the SPTP. Thus, the new self-propelled anti-tank gun will be equipped with a modern digital fire control system with more advanced sights, including thermal imaging, as well as software and hardware complex, allowing to include the object into a single tactical level control system.

The number required to purchase self-propelled anti-tank guns will be determined by the Ministry of Defense.

In the 90s of the last century, the Volgograd Tractor Plant was the developer and manufacturer of this specialty. The 2005-mm 125 mm self-propelled anti-tank gun 2-25 was adopted. Therefore, its modernization in the direction of unification with the new assault vehicle BMD-4М is planned to be carried out in Volgograd. The potential collaborators of this development work are Kurgan enterprises of Tractor Plants - SKBM OJSC and Kurganmashzavod OJSC, the developer and manufacturer of BMD-4М, respectively.

Currently, SPTP is a combat armored tracked floating vehicle with a powerful artillery-missile weapon system, which can make marches up to 500 km without refueling and can be transported by military transport aircraft aviation and landing ships, to land by landing and parachute methods with

crew inside the car. Possessing a high power density, the machine is capable of fighting in high mountains and hot tropical climates, without preparation, to overcome water obstacles in the swell of up to 3 points while firing afloat in the ± 30 ° sector, loading under its own power into landing ships from the water during execution combat missions.

SPTP 2S25 in terms of firepower is not inferior to the main tanks type T-72 and T-80, and its mobility on land and water is at the BMD-3 level. These and other qualities, combined with the circular rotation of the turret and the stabilization of weapons in two planes, make it possible to use the Sprut-SD as a light amphibious tank. Analogs of such a machine do not exist in the world.

Modernization of the PTP will significantly increase its combat capabilities, and in terms of firepower it will be compared to the T-90 tank.

    A self-propelled gun is needed, like a new BMD. Yes, under the guise of unification, there is some kind of wrecking in terms of re-equipping the airborne forces with new equipment. As a result, there is no new and the old breathes request negative

      What on .. modernization ((NOODLES)) am ). a new “Kurganets” is being developed by the 20th year.
      To buy, Octopus SD, what it is, not what kind of modernization it does not require. The only installation of a modern thermal imager !!! What kind of .. documentation, this is for another 10 years !!!

        Kurganets-25 in 2015 will only go into a series and this is at best. Its lightweight version in the form of a new BMD is yet to be developed. It is logical that the Airborne Forces now and immediately wanted the BMD-4M model, as a more balanced and relatively modern one. It is also logical that all the auxiliary equipment of the Airborne Forces will be on the same base with it.
        IMHO BMD-4M is just handsome ...

    Logically, the Airborne Forces need it very much. But for the marines and landmen, I would still leave the base- BMP 3 ....

    Now the landing will be with its floating tank.
    The 125-mm 2A75 smoothbore gun installed in the turret provides firepower at the level of tanks of the T-72, T-80, T-90 families. The length of the gun barrel is 6000 mm, the mass of the gun is 2350 kg. Penetration - 700-770 mm with overcoming dynamic protection. Rate of fire - 7 rounds / min.

    I don’t understand why such a technique is needed. At the front edge of the battle, it will not last long - the armor is weak, it can only act against tanks from an ambush.
    It’s better to give the landing a self-propelled gun Vienna, with a set of high-precision shells. And there will be more benefit from it and less loss. In addition, a vein was created with the possibility of using captured shells, which means that the landing party can replenish them on the territory of the enemy.

    Well, direct repetition of claims of the time of the Patriotic to the Su-76 laughing The answer is the same, I advise you to search in nete.

    Well, the fact that these are different guns will naturally be missed, but the reservation began to be with her, unlike the Octopus, probably ogogo. laughing It’s possible even in hand-to-hand combat. Once again - this is not a tank but self-propelled guns and it must be used accordingly, and not bayonet-mounted.

    Metlik] I don’t understand why such a technique is needed.

    at the fact that you dear do not quite accurately imagine the tasks set for the airborne forces above the "bosses" the task of seizing and holding! and not to break through the enemy's echeloned defense to the full depth! and indeed "Sprut-SD" will act mainly from an ambush (after capturing the desired object), although it is unlikely that orphaned tank units are scampering in the enemy's rear, but an ordinary BMP or armored personnel carrier can pour in. What about the vein at just a self-propelled mortar to support the pants (yes!) Against the enemy's MBT question? and high-precision shells and other crap with the capture of equipment from the enemy is a big question, since these shells may not be stupid for this unit. but about what troubles a unit armed with octopuses can do, I will keep quiet myself!

      I always thought that a howitzer is much more effective as a weapon than an anti-tank gun. The projectile flies from above and hits the roof where the armor is not so strong. In addition, the shooting comes from closed positions and the self-propelled gun is in relative safety. Can an octopus break through the frontal armor of an abrams from 2 kilometers? This is a question. Will they give him another shot? also not a fact. And Vienna will definitely destroy him.

      Regarding that Vienna is just a mortar. Not certainly in that way.

    Well, maybe. In any case, the work is right. Let's look at the result.

    Very good news, because the airborne troops did not have decent calibers, but now they will. Fine!

    And why is this octopus needed? Why is it fundamentally better than the BMD-4 with "melon"?
