Former Soviet at the exhibition KADEX-2014

New upgraded BMP-1 with 82-mm mortar 2B9M Cornflower

At the KADEX exhibition in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana, Semey Engineering showed a complex consisting of a new 82-mm mortar conveyor and a transport-loading machine.

The complex is based on two upgraded tracked BMP-1, on one installed 82-mm mortar 2B9M Cornflower, and on the other is a spare ammunition. Cornflower Mortar is an air-cooled version of the original liquid-cooled 2B9 mortar. It is installed in the middle part of the hull, right in front of the crew compartment, consisting of four people, and the compartment for ammunition.

The mortar is serviced manually by an experienced calculation, partially protected by hatches opening to the side; he is able to achieve a rate of fire of 20 - 30 shots per minute. The mortar has the same vertical guidance angles as the original stationary model (from -1 to + 85 degrees); this means that the mortar can hit a target at a distance of 4720 meters when using standard ammunition. The mass of the mortar has not changed and is 632 kg.

Her transport-loading vehicle has a reworked open cargo platform in the stern of the machine with a solid folding ramp and a crane at the site of the mortar.

New transport-loading machine for mortar 2B9M Cornflower

The exhibition in Kazakhstan shows a new reconnaissance vehicle.

It is clear that the BRDM-KZ is based on the BRDM-2 chassis, but the new car is easily recognizable by the altered front end and the wider track.

At the KADEX 2014 arms exhibition, Kazakhstan Engineering presented for the first time a prototype machine based on the BRDM-2, which was designated the BRDM-KZ. The machine is designed based on the needs of the Kazakh armed forces in the new light armored reconnaissance vehicle.

The machine was developed by Kazakhstan enterprises Semey Engineering and Kazakhstan Aselsan Engineering (responsible for the integration of sensors and remotely controlled combat module). The companies have been working on the project since December 2013 (a cooperation agreement was signed a month earlier), and the exhibition announced the testing of this prototype scheduled for July 2014.

The body of the car was significantly improved in order to obtain a larger internal space for the crew, in addition, a new armor was installed on the front inclined sheet, new side doors and a new engine with high combustion capacity. Under the installation of the new engine, Semey Engineering has finalized the layout of the rear of the case. There was installed an Iveco diesel engine with a power of 111 kW (149 hp), compatible with EURO IV and connected to a manual gearbox (six speeds forward and one back), replacing the outdated GAZ-41 gasoline engine on the BRDM-2.

The car retained its amphibious qualities, but the existing central water cannon was replaced by two smaller water cannons, which improved handling during fusion.

The mobility of the machine was improved by removing two pairs of additional pneumatic rollers (two on each side) located in the center of the machine, and installing original semi-elliptical springs with torsion shafts and hydraulic shock absorbers. Bridges were taken from the BTR-80 in order to expand the gauge of the new car.

In the photo at the BRDM-2, two additional pneumatic rollers are clearly visible.

The BRDM-KZ has a 5,75 meter length and an 2,9 meter width, which is significantly larger than the original BRDM-2 with its 2,35 meter width. The combat weight of the machine is 7-8 tons, depending on the configuration. The new engine allows you to reach a maximum speed of 110 km / h and have a power reserve of up to 1300 km, which significantly exceeds the cruising range of 750 km from the BRDM-2.

The reconnaissance vehicle complex consists of the PSN panoramic survey kit and the Falconeye surveillance system on one telescopic mast and the ACAR radar on the second mast. PSN has 12 modules, each contains one thermal and one daytime camera, so four groups of three cameras each provide a full coverage 360 degree.

If you look at the BRDM-KZ car at the back, you will see a converted configuration with two water cannons, an ACAR radar and a PSN / Falconeye optic-electronic kit on extended telescopic masts

The Falconeye system also has a thermal imaging and daytime camera, plus a laser range finder and a GPS antenna; All this is installed at the top of the mast on a pan-tilt head, providing a panoramic view. The task of Falconeye is to identify individual objects seen by the PSN system. The thermal imaging camera operates in the 3-5 micron range, the matrix of the camera is 640x512 pixels and has a double electronic zoom, the camera can switch between the wide 25x20 field of view and the narrow 2X1,6 field of view.

Aselsan is also developing a long-wave version of a thermal imaging camera operating in the 8-12 micron range. This option will have a wide field of view 10,3x8,3 and a narrow field of view 3,7x3.

The daytime camera has an x12 magnification, and the laser rangefinder uses an eye-safe laser source with a 1,54 micron long wavelength.

Survey radar ACAR operates in the Ku-band mode with a low probability of interception of signals. The radar performs "advanced" signal processing, it can track targets in scan mode, and also simultaneously track multiple targets. The radar has a maximum range of 40 km, and a person can be detected at a distance of up to 12 km. The scan area can be narrowed from 360 to 10 degrees, while the vertical angles are ± 24 degrees.

The armament is mainly of a defensive plan; at the KADEX show, a DUBM-12.7 with tank machine gun NSVT 12,7 mm caliber. The module rotates 360 degrees, elevation angles range from -10 to +60 degrees; An ammunition of 400 rounds ready for firing is located in the hull. The machine gun is aimed at the target using the ATS-40/60 thermal imaging sight.

Minor changes in the appearance of the BRDM-2 allow, however, to immediately identify the new car on the converted front end with new panels of armor glass and new headlights.

    USSR-taxis !!!! Well, good options, and borrowing bridges from the BTR contributes to the cheapness of production, and spare parts are a dime a dozen, with the BMP, the same picture. These models look, perhaps, more serious than other crafts of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex

        I am glad that our people have at least begun to do something.
        1) But to be honest I didn’t understand why a mortar was installed to the BMP. That he will support the infantry with a mortar? Plus, he needs TZM. I think this creates more problems than it solves. Firing range 4,7 km. and accuracy is probably lame. Maybe they will not be used as BMP, but will be like mortar calculation. But for this whole BMP redo, why ???
        2) But the BRDM pleased. Well remade. It is only asked how about transportation by rail. Since the width is 2,9 m. And there are no such freight cars.

          1. This is not a BMP, but a mortar (self-propelled), and together with a TZM - a self-propelled mortar complex. It solves the problems of mobility and firepower of the battalion support units. The firing range with satisfactory accuracy is quite enough to provide fire support to the infantry to the depth of the immediate task of the battalion in the offensive and firing at the deployment and dismounting lines of the advancing enemy in defense.
          Regarding the alteration of the BMP: it is better to alter than to cut it for scrap, what is in "storage".
          2. BRDM is not pleased with Western electronics. In terms of functionality, it is no longer a BRDM (armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicle), but a BRM (armored RM. Not to be confused with BRM - combat RM). By rail with such a width it is transported "with a bang" (like the progenitor of the undercarriage - BTR-80)

            And the BRM is also a necessary thing, to shove its equipment into a very large and heavily armored hummer (it turned out) is not a bad idea and, in principle, cheaper than the BRDM-3 based on the BTR-80 or "Lynx" based on the BMP-3.

          This is convenient for parts on the BMP, the mortar will be equal to their mobility and use the same parts. Similar machines on our BTR-80 chassis were made. TZM is still needed, almost one gun always needs 2 cars, one to carry a gun, the other ammunition. If the gun is self-propelled, then all the more so, since the ammunition load is small.

          And what! The Israelis are clearly not fools, but put their mortars on the wheeled chassis of the "Humvees", got mobility, and speed, and the accuracy in the article indicates that the calculation consists of experienced fighters. Most likely, these will be mobile mortar units of regimental subordination.

        And the APCs, BRDM and mortars in our warehouses are standing and it is not necessary to produce them. These samples of capital modernization, the benefit of spare parts for them in abundance.

      the meaning of the armor is that the calculation can safely change position and be selected for firing at the shortest possible distance - which is especially important given that the mortar fires on a sloping trajectory, a very correct solution - I got it, covered the enemy with a series of mines and, using the maneuverability and speed of the BMP, left the position , recharged again and again according to the previous algorithm.

    With a mortar it’s not clear at all ... why? Why tie the combat crew to the car and deprive maneuverability (to get the hell out of it), it can of course be faster on the machine. As I understand it, the main weapon should be one that can support the infantry during the landing, but this is probably not a mortar. To the edge of ATGM! And so, the sensible use of Soviet technology with minimal costs, Kazakhs are great.

      Your reasoning is strange, it seems to you that after the opening of the fire, the crew should throw the mortar and run away from it with all its might, and then get a new mortar, so you don’t have enough equipment. Mortars installed in armored vehicles have been known since the Second World War, which increases their maneuverability and survival on the battlefield.

        What is interesting is the Israeli mortar based on the two-meter American M113 trough (besides, a non-automatic, ordinary infantry one) - no one criticizes, although the Israelis use it successfully, on the contrary, many "military" say that there is no better one. As soon as the Kazakhs combine the mobility and security of an infantry fighting vehicle and the rate of fire of an automatic mortar, criticism immediately climbed from all cracks.

        for this machine there is still not enough light reconnaissance drone, which could easily be transported in the compartment for calculation or directly on the roof. And if it was still possible for our developers to develop new types of ammunition, namely mines to the cornflower - adjustable, with additional charges to increase the firing range, etc., then this mortar would not have a price.

    The worthy amphibious qualities of the BRDM-KZ are doubtful.
    In my opinion, the BRDM-KZ armored hull turned out with a large number of elements that will greatly impede the movement of the machine through the water.
