Czech-Slovak consortium modernizes Soviet BMP-1 and BMP-2

8

According to ARMS-TASS, the Czech-Slovak consortium is preparing a completely new complex version of the modernization of the Soviet BMP-1 and BMP-2 for field testing.


This was reported by the magazine "International Defense Review".

The Czech enterprise Excalibur Army (Excalibur Army) and the Slovak military equipment repair unit VOP Trancin (VOP Trancin) and EVPU (EVPU) are working on the BMP modernization project, designated BVP-M2 SKCZ with 2009. First the result was the MGC-1 BMP, introduced in 2011.

In the process of creating BVP-M2, the designers focused on improving the efficiency of booking a car. Soft crew seats are equipped with a swivel mechanism. Bottom reservation complies with NATO STANAG 4569 first class standard. The space in the track area is protected by the second class, while the case provides protection against NATO 7,62x51 caliber cartridges and, using additional armor plates, against KPVT armor-piercing bullets from a 200 distance. Different active and passive systems can be used armor. Fire extinguishing systems, protection against explosion, and protection against detonation of IEDs are also installed. Dimensions of the machine are 7 x 3,2 x 2,9 m (excluding curtain grid reservation).

Models of the troop compartment and the office of the management of the upgraded infantry fighting vehicle BVP-M2


In order to improve the convenience of the crew, the layout of the BMP was changed. In particular, instead of a two-door rear hatch was installed one vertical panel with a hydraulic drive. The fuel tank and battery pack were also moved, which made it possible to increase the height of the troop compartment to 1,3 m. Separate cooling and heating systems are used to maintain a comfortable temperature.

The combat module "Turra-30" (TURRA-30) developed by the Slovak company EVPU consists of an 30-mm 2-42 gun, an 7,62-mm machine gun coupled to it and smoke grenade launchers. Additionally can be installed dual ATGM. The exact characteristics of the combat module are not yet known, but it is assumed that it will be equipped with all-weather day and night sights of the commander and gunner and stabilizer of the main armament, which will allow the car to fire on the move.

Analysts believe that Slovakia is likely to become the first country to upgrade its outdated BVP-1 / 2 to the level of BVP-M2 SKCZ. There was no significant modernization of the Slovak BMP park at the moment, unlike in the Czech Republic, which bought the Pandur-2 BMP.

    A promising market - many Soviet infantry fighting vehicles remained in operation. So now everyone is doing this.

    And why is it profitable for them to do this, but not for us ???

    It seems to me that there are not enough engineering and design resources. All forces (and they are now not as powerful as in Soviet times) are thrown into the development of new technology. That's why private traders won't do it? At least the same "Protection".

    Elementary Watson, in the production of "new technology" the dough is much easier to cut.

    Most importantly, such modernization will interfere with the sale of new infantry fighting vehicles, how to counter this, should be considered in our military-industrial complex !!!

    What modernization will interfere with the sale of new BMP


    so how ???

    if there is no money for new ones, there will be none. But simply melting a BMP into a cast iron only because you want to drive a new one more expensively is somehow not kosher.

    And if the hydraulics fail? Do kamasutra inside this tin, knocking your fingers out of the ears of the hydraulic cylinders?

      Press the button for mechanical unloading of the cylinder, the pressure will go away and you can open without removing anything manually.

    If sclerosis doesn’t fail me, this pepelats was already written here.
    In the process of creating the BVP-M2, designers focused on improving the efficiency of booking a car. Soft crew seats are equipped with a swivel mechanism. Reservation of the bottom complies with the first class of the NATO standard STANAG 4569.

    And what side does the rotary mechanism of the seats relate to the effectiveness of the reservation? Yes, by the way, - the first class of the NATO standard STANAG 4569 (mine protection) - Hand grenades, unexploded ordnance of artillery shells and anti-personnel explosive devices when undermining a vehicle - how does this differ from the basic BMP-1,2?
    the hull provides protection against armor-piercing rounds of caliber 7,62x51 NATO, and with the use of additional armor plates from armor-piercing bullets KPVT from a distance of 200 m

    Where??? Where is the increase in booking efficiency ??? Additional armor plates? So BMP-2D was already. He could not swim anymore, and he was too sluggish on the go.
    The fuel tank and battery pack were also moved, which allowed to increase the height of the landing compartment to 1,3 m.

    Where is the relationship? The tank and batteries were located between the backs of the landing party seats. So they would say - "increased the height of the hull, increased weight, the chassis turned out to be overloaded."
    it will be equipped with day and night all-weather sights of the commander and gunner

    Oh, is there really something new?
    and a stabilizer of the main armament, which will allow the machine to fire on the go.

    But BMP-2 could not, then ??? Wow ... straight from the novelty is breathtaking!
    In general, the Slovaks want to cut their own defense budget - they have the flag in their hands, why call restyling modernization.

    Hello everyone!

    I can’t not make a little clarification on the names and countries in technical disputes. Judging from the English version, they wrote it in our journal, which is why the names are so distorted.

    Czech company Excalibur Army and Slovak unit for the repair of military equipment “VOP Trancin” (VOP Trancin) and company EVPU are working on a BMP modernization project that has received the BVP-M2 SKCZ designation since 2009.


    In the name of the BMP itself: BVP-M2 SKCZ (Bojové vozidlo piechoty / SK, Bojové vozidlo pechoty / CZ, that is, our “BMP”, well, the abbreviation at the end of SKCZ is “Slovak-Czech”.

    "Slovak unit for the repair of military equipment" VOP Trancin "(VOP Trancin)"
    there is only a Military Repair Enterprise, Trencin, i.e. “GRP Trencin” and not “GP Transin” (VOJENSKÝ OPRAVÁRENSKÝ PODNIK / VOP Trenčín)

    The enterprise itself (EVPÚ Elektrotechnický vyskumný a projektový ústav as Nová Dubnica), is JSC “Electrotechnical Scientific Research and Design Institute”, Nova Dubnica,

    From the history:
    historically, armored personnel carriers were produced at factories of the present Czech Republic and tanks and in Slovakia (tanks and diesel for tanks, and diesel for tractors for the USSR) in Martin / ZŤS Martin / Heavy Machinery Plants - (ZŤS Martin) ", Central Slovakia, BMP, OT,

    There is also the Metrological Bureau (for metrology, control and certification of military equipment), the Slovak Testing Center - SKTC 101, located in New Dubnica.
