Italian impostor and Russian BRM-ZK Lynx

We bring to your attention the informational message “Italian impostor and Russian BRM-3K“ Rys ”(pictured), published on the portal“ Herald of Mordovia ”29.06.2013. For more information, please contact the Department of Strategic Communications Concern Tractor Plants.


In 90-s of the last century, Russian designers developed a number of promising models of equipment, which at that time were among the best in the world. But, unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, primarily economic, these combat vehicles did not enter service.

One of these models is the combat reconnaissance vehicle BRM-3K "Lynx", which was equipped with modern equipment.

According to the manufacturer's website, the machine, weighing 19 tons, was intended for conducting troop reconnaissance at any time of the year and day under conditions of limited optical visibility. For this purpose, a thermal imager was installed on the “Lynx”, which can be seen at 3 km.

The maximum range of detection and identification of targets using an existing radar station is about 12 km. So the tank is found at a distance of about 10 km, and people - at a distance of 4 km.

BRM retains high characteristics of the base vehicle - the infantry fighting vehicle BMP-3: excellent maneuverability, high speed of movement, good maneuverability and the ability to overcome water obstacles afloat with the help of water jet propulsion, sufficient armor protection. Maximum speed on the highway - 70 km / h. Cruising on the highway - 600 km. Armament: automatic gun 2А72 30-mm, PKT machine gun 7,62 mm.

The machine has a place to store the anti-tank guided missile system (ATGM), 6 small units weapons and 15 hand grenades. In the case of the car there are 2 embrasures for shooting from small arms.

BRM is equipped with navigation and orientation equipment, an electronic computer for information processing, communication and data transmission facilities. There is a hardware for classifying speech and digital information.

There are places for placement of equipment for the organization of a remote observation point. This BRM would be very useful during the fighting in the North Caucasus and during the war "888".

During various shows, the author had to talk with representatives of the manufacturer, and industrialists expressed the hope that the home state would still find the means to purchase the required amount of these armored vehicles from a domestic manufacturer.

But the funds were found for another car, which the intelligence officers decided to do too. True, the manufacturer was foreign, and the car did not have even a small fraction of the equipment that was in the arsenal of the BRM-3K. As if in a mock foreign car, too, was called "Lynx". It is not clear why this was done. Maybe the people who did this simply did not know that we already have one modern intelligence vehicle with the exact same name. If this is so, then this very much characterizes the level of competence of the decision makers.

As a result, a strange situation has arisen, the real “Lynx” almost did not reach the troops, and история with an Italian impostor wallowed in a series of all sorts of scandals. Suffers from this army, exploiting, in the main, rather outdated technology. One hope is for an armored reconnaissance vehicle based on the crawler "Kurgants-25" or wheeled "Boomerang".

    According to the author, one would think that there was some kind of competition between these machines, most likely the decision to purchase Iveco was made for completely different reasons, and modern intelligence systems included in a single control system are certainly necessary.

      Yes, the author climbed into the wrong steppe. Instead of pointing out the fundamental difference between the BRM-1K and the BRM-3K as part of the equipment, he started kicking a light patrol car with protection against explosions.

      I would rather walk through the figures who stuffed the modern intelligence complex. equipment "Tiger", which was, to put it mildly, a strange decision. The BMP-3 base is much more suitable for the role of the basis for such a machine.

    There is every reason to believe that corruption ears are peeping out of this whole story with Iveco. No one will argue that during the "leadership" of the Ministry of Defense Serdyukov, our customers rushed to the West to search advanced technology... Shoigu urgently curtailed these "searches" and reoriented orders to domestic producers. This is where the "dog rummaged". So, the latest arrests of corrupt officials in the Ministry of Defense speak volumes.

      Well, what does Iveco Lynx have to do with the topic of the article? Can you at least explain?

        Reread this part of the article:
        But funds were found for another machine, which the scouts also decided to tackle. True, the manufacturer was foreign, and the vehicle did not have even a fraction of the equipment that was in the arsenal of the BRM-3K. As if in a mockery the foreign car was also called "Lynx". It is unclear why they did this. Maybe the people who did this just didn't know that we already have one modern reconnaissance vehicle with the exact same name. If so, then it is very characteristic of the level of competence of those who made responsible decisions.

        As a result, a strange situation developed, the real "Lynx" almost did not reach the troops, and the story with the Italian impostor was mired in a series of all kinds of scandals.

        Do you have any questions? laughing

          Still have questions

          There is. Because "Iveko-Lynx" should replace the BRDM-2 in the troops, and the BRM-3K, respectively, the BRM-1K.

          You have an idea about OSH intelligence. units of motorized rifle brigades NE?

            I have, but recently you have not noticed a "tilt" towards foreign analogues? "Ivek" began to increase the volume of purchases, shove them where they did not hit (more purchases, more rollback), wheeled tanks, "Mistrals", agreed that the purchase of "Leopards" is more profitable than the manufacture of a Russian tank ...
            The author writes about this "acquisitive hysteria". IMHO

              I understand your "cry from the heart", but what does this have to do with the topic?
              Do we still have demolition defense vehicles really needed by military intelligence? No. Do we have a modern replacement for the BRM-1K? Also no. The BRM-3K managed to become outdated without having hit the troops.
              And what to do with it?
              There is only KamAZ-43269 "Dozor", but it is "neither yours nor ours" - it is unable to replace any of these machines. In addition, according to the results of the military, there are a lot of questions for him.

        We need to read more carefully! These are two completely different machines! One is domestic and the other is foreign! At one time Serdyukov surrounded himself with fighting friends and, in their likeness, deputies who were not up to our technology! They had the task of getting a big margin from any deals, and what will you weld on our technology ??? Here from here the notorious Italian miracle appeared !!!

          Right But not only that, they also have different purposes.

          There is the BMPT "Terminator", and there is the Mi-8ATMSh "Terminator". And one does not interfere with one another.

    Experienced in one bottle states the whole situation in Russia ... I agree with you and asks the question ... Russian economy? As observers of the military review, the context is correct - "the army suffers from this"

    They have to provide their people with work, and foreigners will not sell us anything sensible anyway, especially NATO in Italy.
