    Who would doubt that! Soon to the Thais and "Bastions" will go. Kharkovites are the best!

    Trash on wheels, like the BTR-80.
    All the advanced countries go out of their way to increase the protection of their cars, and these "geniuses" simply put a new tower and engine on a cardboard armored vehicle.

      suggest you buy from Italians? An armored personnel carrier is not a tank or a bunker, and a shot from an RPG or ATGM will not withstand any of the above

    I suggest already starting to make a new car that meets new requirements, and not rape this coffin on wheels, in which soldiers are afraid to ride.
    The fact that in Chechnya they were hung with reinforcing bars, tracks and sandbags speaks for itself.
    The priority for such machines is the protection and survival of the crew.

    Well, armored personnel carriers are not the first line technology. Their goal is to deliver personnel to the battlefield. The machine of such a class should not withstand shelling from RPGs or ATGMs. That is already a completely different technique. Losses of armored personnel carriers often occur not from its poor qualities, but from improper use and illiterate command. In the current conditions, any armored vehicles must hide behind the air. What to say about RPGs, if 60 ton Abrams were burning from them.

    Something similar to the BTR-90, but ours is still better.

    A promising wheeled armored personnel carrier (8x8) should have a mass of about 25t., A diesel of 600 hp.
    What Ukraine offers is an anachronism.
