Turkish BMP Tulpar

36
The Turkish defense corporation "Otokar" in early May 2013 introduced the public its new product. In Turkey, in addition to the promising main combat tank "Altay" created a new infantry fighting vehicle "Tulpar". In the mythology of Turkic peoples, Tulpar (read as Tulpar) means a winged or flying horse that corresponds to Pegasus from the mythology of Ancient Greece. This BMP has a modular design and can later become the basis for the creation of various specialized armored vehicles. The design and appearance in the Turkish infantry fighting vehicle shows similarities with the Swedish infantry fighting vehicle CV-90 and the German infantry fighting vehicle Puma.


For the first time, a prototype of the Tulpar tracked combat armored platform was presented by Otokar at IDEF-2013, which was held in Istanbul. The first model of the car was made in the form of BMP. The Tulpar infantry fighting vehicle contains a crew of 3s: a commander, a driver, a gunner, and 8 fully equipped soldiers. The mass of the sample presented at the exhibition in Istanbul is 32 tons, but the weight of the machine can be increased to 42 tons. This combat vehicle can be transported by air using the ATA A-400M Atlas transport aircraft developed by Airbus Military (Airbus Militi). In 2013, Turkey should receive the first production aircraft of this type.

This BMP was created by the same company that worked on the creation of the Altai MBT. After the 3 years of design work and development, the new combat vehicle was introduced to the general public and became one of the most significant innovations of this year at the international defense exhibition IDEF in Istanbul. Despite the fact that the Turkish army has not officially come forward with the requirement to create a new BMP, the company Otokar decided to “go ahead” in advance, knowing full well that such a machine would be necessary to support the new MBT on the battlefield. As a result, Turkish engineers launched the creation of the BMP Tulpar simultaneously with the Altay tank.

Turkish BMP Tulpar

The BMP Tulpar is designed to solve two main tasks - providing fire support to the allied tanks and the safe transportation of soldiers in the conditions of modern combat in areas of high danger. When creating the design of a new BMP, Turkish designers considered among the main priorities the protection of the crew and the landing force against small mines and improvised explosive devices. In addition, the car has a good ballistic protection and is able to maintain network communications with the main battle tank Altai and other ground forces.

The BMP Tulpar was created with the aim of meeting the potential needs of the ground forces of Turkey in armament of this class, as well as for exporting to all possible potential customers. Until the end of 2013, the new combat vehicle will undergo a series of factory tests, which are in many ways similar to the tests that the Altay tank is passing. It is assumed that the serial release of the new BMP can begin in the 2015 year. According to some information, the land forces of Turkey can initially order up to 400 of such BMPs in order to supplement the first batch of 250 with the Altai MBT. Already now Azerbaijan is called as one of the potential buyers of this BMP. According to preliminary information, the cost of one BMP is about 1,2 million dollars.

The Tulpar BMP demonstrated at IDEF-2013 was equipped with a remote-controlled Mizrak-30 combat module (Mizrak-30), which is also a development of the Otokar company. The armament of this module includes an 30-mm automatic cannon and an 7,62-mm machine gun paired with it. Also included in the combat module are 4 advanced L-UMTAS anti-tank guided missiles with a laser guidance system. These anti-tank missiles are designed by the Turkish company Roketsan. By its ideology, the Mizrak 30 combat module is very close to the combat module installed on the German Puma BMP. Experts, as already stated above, see in the Turkish BMP a clear imitation of the German counterpart. It is noteworthy that the combat module Mizrak-30 can also be installed on the new Turkish wheeled armored personnel carrier ARMA, in the version with the wheel formula 8х8.


The 30-mm automatic cannon ammunition consists of 400 projectiles (200 are already in ammunition tapes, another 200 is in laying in front of the combat vehicle behind the engine). Remarkable is the fact that the gun has a two-sided projectile feed. The process of loading the gun in the combat module is carried out under the protection of armor. The ammunition of the 7,62-mm machine gun paired with a cannon consists of 400 cartridges loaded with ribbons, plus 4000 cartridges that are located inside the BMP housing. The sighting equipment installed in the combat module allows you to conduct combat operations at any time of the day.

BMP Tulpar equipped with modular armor. Therefore, the mass of the BMP can vary, reaching 42 tons, depending on the degree of protection established. The main composite armor of the Turkish BMP provides the crew and landing force with universal protection against ballistic ammunition 14,5 mm. At the same time, in the frontal projection, the combat vehicle is better protected, the frontal armor is able to withstand 25-mm armor-piercing shells. The use of a modular design allows you to quickly replace any damaged armor panel, and also makes Tulpar easily updated machine by installing additional armor plates, saving from larger-caliber ammunition. Foreign customers of the BMP "Tulpar" can decide in advance what level of protection is desirable for them, based on the specific operating conditions, the prevailing terrain and the configuration of the combat vehicle.

According to unofficial information, the new BMP is able to withstand the blasting of 10 kg. TNT anywhere under the hull. A Tulpar BMP with a maximum extra reservation can easily be considered as a heavy BMP. With the installation of additional modules of armor, its mass grows to a value that becomes comparable to the mass of the famous Soviet MBT T-72. In addition, the infantry fighting vehicle has a collective defense and fire extinguishing system. In the future, Otokar plans to install one of the developed active protection systems on Tulpar.


Otokar claims that the BMP can be equipped with 2 engine types: Scania DSI 14 or DSI 16. The engine compartment is located in the front compartment of the combat vehicle. The cruising range of the BMP is 600 km, the maximum speed on the highway is 70 km / h. In the version with an eight-cylinder V-shaped diesel engine Scania DI 16 Turbo with a volume of 15,7 liters and a capacity of 810 hp, the BMP is equipped with 32-x high-speed mechanical transmission. BMP Tulpar suspension torsion bar using hydraulic shock absorbers. The equipment installed on the BMP provides the crew with awareness of the evolving combat situation in the 360 degrees sector. The machine is equipped with a standard onboard system of chemical, radiation and biological protection.

Tactical and technical characteristics of the BMP Tulpar:

Overall dimensions: length - 7230 mm., Width - 3400 mm., Height - 2676 mm.
Mass: from 32 to 42 tons, depending on the level of protection.
The main armament is the 30-mm automatic cannon (400 shells) and the 7,62-mm machine gun paired with it (4400 ammunition).
Additional armament - 4 ATGM L-Umtas.
The power plant is a V-shaped 8 cylinder diesel engine with a capacity of 16 liters Scania DSI 16.
Engine power - 810 HP
Power reserve - 600 km.
The maximum speed is 70 km / h.
Crew - 3 person.
The landing party is 8 man.

      Well Duc and weight up to 42t or more. Does the t72 have a much more powerful engine?
      And the chassis is interesting.
      Ours would also do well to think about the BMP.
      How many already talk about dynamic protection.
      And she will be useful BMP.

      BMP 1 will always remain No. 1 in the world.
      And the BMP, the Tulpar, is simply well made at a good, world-class BMP.
      Turkish technology is represented by Western companies. Modern armor, SLA, engine. The terms of success.
      The Turks could create BMPs even better, using a tracked platform from the T-155 Firtina self-propelled guns, which is the Turkish version of the 9 mm caliber K155 Thunder self-propelled howitzer.
      And in Russia there is the General Staff GM 123, another 1949 release. Ready-made chassis for infantry fighting vehicles.

          I’m on the contrary for acquiring modern technologies and introducing them into production. At my own technological level. As did in Otokar, by acquiring a license for the production of self-propelled guns and tanks from South Korea. Not blind copying, but joint development and implementation into production. Based on their technology.
          Russia needs a BMD-4 best suited for SEP (((Sweden))), but no one is going to buy technology. Although they are vital for the Airborne Forces.

    what will it support then? 30mm with a fist or 7.62 machingan? so we also have this, for 30 years now. for support, now it’s necessary to chant more interestingly pathetic 30 + 7.62, and in the future to chant more seriously, otherwise it’s like chickens for laughs. (Even BMP-3 just corresponds to the moment, and already has no groundwork for the future. Let's hope that they’ll put something better on our new lungs). And yet I do not understand the admiration of the members of the cougar. it’s the most stupid car on earth, because its cost is 5 million euros, abrams and t-90 are cheaper !! as many as 400 cougars were built, they will be enough only for three motorized rifle regiments, i.e. one division and all !! absolutely pointless car!

    what will it support then? 30mm with a fist or 7.62 machingan? so we also have this, for 30 years now. for support


    The warhead of the BMP-2 is quite comfortable with the military.

    The BMP-2 warhead doesn’t quite suit the military, that's why the BMP-3 was built, but it’s too late to put it on stream, the next generation is coming

      That's a moot point. New artillery piece. - Or add an automatic grenade launcher. What's better? We have the only country (USSR) who put in a 100 mm cannon. The military for a long time refused it as well as the Octopus-SD
      Anyway. Since the Turks made 30x173 the main caliber, it means they have calculated everything. They also do not sit there suckers.

    The Turks did not impress, did not impress. A fluid caterpillar with protruding rubber, a curved lattice, like everything is orphaned. The Turks don’t have an industrial culture, after so many years of shopping and tourist existence they’ll get paid .. I’m at least ridiculous for a serious application to the world tank building school. If the most faithful last-born Azerbaijan did not buy anything from the Turks ..... what can I say ?? concussion.

    everything will be decided by the battlefield, but with us the Turks have always decided in our favor. Well, they are not warriors. Dushka no.

          Good unsubscribe. You still remember the Great Exodus of the Jews. laughing Or how the Turks broke us near Azov. Or as near Plevna tens of thousands of men put there are today and since the First World Turks have always been feared. Do not be brave.

Zapadlo is simple. let’s say to the Chechens they will fuck you as it should be. as in the recent past. Yes, and what tribute does Russia pay today to Chechnya where do you go?

      non-warriors do not create huge empires this time and secondly, the Turks have never been captured by anyone and have not lost their independence.

    With the installation of additional armor modules, its mass grows to a value that becomes comparable to the mass of the famous Soviet MBT T-72.


    Cars of this weight category on public roads are of little use. To put on asphalt shoes on the tracks, and then remove them at the exit from the asphalt, for this the crew will need quite a noticeable time. Without rubber on the goose, the 40-ton Turkish infantry fighting vehicle battalion will rip the asphalt from any road in just one pass.
    And, as a rule, armored vehicles do not plan to march along public roads, and moving along primers taking into account dust fog, increasing the influence of the terrain (pits, potholes, potholes) and the heaviness of these vehicles will reduce the speed of the convoy to 30 kilometers per hour or less.
    A loss in speed is a decrease in the mobility of a unit and unit, as well as a decrease in the stealth of maneuver. The detection, for example, from the air of the movement of low-speed convoys of heavy Turkish infantry fighting vehicles gives the enemy commander time to make a decision on defense or oncoming battle.
    How to get out of the situation? There is only one way out - to put cars on trailers.
    Turkey is a rather big country.
    As a result, for the rapid transfer of infantry fighting vehicles from the Aegean ON to the same Anatolia, trailers are required at the rate of 1 tractor per 1 infantry fighting vehicle. The presence of such a number of tractors in the state of the infantry brigade automatically increases the cost of each infantry fighting vehicle by the cost of the tractor + the content of its possession and the content of the soldier-driver, and also increases the unmasking signs of the brigade.
    If trailers are taken from the national economy for a one-time transfer of equipment, this leads to an unwarranted result. At the right time and in the right place, the right number of trailers may not be available, and those that are often often either malfunctioning, or the driver is sick, or the car is in limited working order and will stall during the march, etc. In general, a stranger is a stranger.
    Requisition of trailers from private owners and transport companies during the threatened period also does not guarantee the desired result.
    It is not for nothing that the capabilities of equipment for mobility (maneuver) are on a par with fire (firepower capabilities of machines).
    One of the customer’s requirements for the creation of domestic infantry fighting vehicles is that they have the opportunity for long independent marches without the involvement of a third-party fleet of tractors, as well as low weight as a guarantee of the safety of our roads and air mobility.
    Turkish BMP does not fall under these parameters. it’s difficult for the roads, and the Turks don’t have a fleet of heavy transport aircraft.
    So I would recommend that the Turkic-oriented part of the audience moderate the enthusiasm.
    The car is heavy, with limited cross-country ability, with very limited mobility and at the same time a set of weapons that is usual by the standards of a class.
    It is possible to use regular armies, for example with the same BMP-2, to fight against Kurdish rebels and another weakly armed enemy, for example, to meet face to face with BMPs. The Turk will definitely lose.

    Today on the next branch I saw
    Presumably, the combat mass of the BMP will be approximately 25 tons, a crew of 3 people, an assault force of 8 people. Engine power is likely to be around 800 hp, with a top speed of 80 km / h on the highway and 10 km / h afloat. Developers of "Kurganets" paid special attention to mine protection. As officials previously reported, a special reinforced armored capsule will protect the crew and troops.
    For the promising BMP, it is planned to create various weapon systems. The model presented here is equipped with a well-proven 30mm 2A42 automatic gun and dual Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile launchers. In general, on the machine it is possible to install more powerful automatic guns with a caliber of up to 57 mm.

      Well, finally something. Not even 30 years later they established mine protection ...
      Now the main question is when the BMP will be in the troops !!!
