India will spend $ 2 billion to upgrade BMP-2

India decided to modernize its BMP-2 fleet, allocating more than $ 2 billion to it. Russia will provide assistance in improving the machines, which will supply new fire control systems and weapons, reports Lenta.ru report.


India will spend $ 2 billion to upgrade BMP-2


Total will be upgraded 969 combat vehicles. According to the newspaper, they "will receive Russian-made Kornet-E anti-tank systems, as well as new optoelectronic equipment and communication systems."

Modernization assigned to Medak Ordnance Factor in Medak (South India). The project involves the involvement of Indian manufacturers with a gradual increase in components of domestic production. This is necessary to gain experience, which will then be used to create your own new generation of armored vehicles.

Experts say that, most likely, we are talking about modernization with the installation of the Berehok military module developed in Russia. The work of this module, installed on the BMP-2, was demonstrated to the Indian military by Algerian colleagues. It is reported that representatives of the Armed Forces of India were pleased with what they saw.

According to the developers of the module (Tula Instrument Design Bureau), "the combat capabilities of machines with Berezhk increase 4-6 times."

    No, well, it’s nice when Algerians advertise our equipment to the Indians. Well done Tulaki, work with dignity. And the currency in Russia flows not only for oil and gas.

        Yes, a very competent decision on the part of the Hindus is to install almost a thousand cars of the Berezhok complex. Of course, I would like our BMP-2 to upgrade everything with it, because (retraining of crews will require minimal costs + much less than the production of new vehicles) to mass saturation of the BMP-3 aircraft and, moreover, only passing state vehicles. Kurgan’s trials are still far away, and if we take into account the rapidly changing geopolitical situation in the world, the time to the hypothetical “hour H” is ever less ...

          I just do not understand the price. For this money it would be possible not to upgrade, but to buy the same amount of BMP-3. Shaw, officials in India want to get 1st place in the world championship kickbacks?

      Apparently a good combat module, since the Indians saw on the side and wanted the same.

        But I'm wondering: why everywhere and everywhere on the BMP single-barreled gun? Or on BMPT two single-barrel? Isn't it better to put GSh-30K as the main caliber of such equipment? Helicopter pilots in Afghanistan were delighted with it.

          .... Isn't it better to put the GSh-30K as the main caliber of such equipment? Helicopter pilots in Afghanistan were delighted with it ....

          .... And attach a trailer with cartridges at the back to the beh ... laughing .... What is the rate of fire of the GS-30 ???? .... That's it ..... In aviation, the target on the front sight is a split second and you need to get a lot of salvo, so all aircraft guns have a frantic rate of fire, in order to plant the maximum amount of metal in the target in these fractions of a second .... This is not necessary on the ground ... The goals are all slow-moving and the issue is solved in a different way .... hi

          For what ?
          If you want to strengthen the striking effect - increase the caliber. Increasing the number of trunks makes sense only for specific tasks.

            And yet, it is not clear to me: why on the Frame at once two 2A42? What are the visible advantages of two single-barrel downs over one double-barreled? In my opinion, there are no advantages other than disadvantages. Ballistics is worse due to the shorter barrel, rate of fire is lower, it is more difficult to constructively ... In general, I’m thinking that it would be nice to install a mount for the UPK-23-250 gondola instead of a gun on all these armored vehicles. There will be a small unification of weapons with aviation.
            And it’s easier and cheaper ...

    India has long-standing accounts with England, and can wedge itself in the struggle against the Anglo-Saxons.

    BMP-2 with the installation of "Berezhka" modernized for Algeria. They had an additional panoramic sight. The location of the AGS-17 is changed, the 4 PU ATGM "Cornet" is installed. In 2005, a contract was signed with Algeria for the modification of 300 vehicles to the BMP-2M level.
    However, this is much better than the Indians themselves modernized:

        Hindus, if they have not learned how to make armored vehicles, are very successfully moving in this direction. Here is such a cute Indian combat platform Tata Motors-VRDE (DRDO) Wheeled Armored Platform (WhAP), under the designation "Kestrel", they presented at the DEFEXPO exhibition in 2014 year. Uninhabited tower, ATGM "Spike" and "Javelin", 10 landing man. Camouflage of course out ...

      all these “upgrades” and “upgrades” are not from a good life. but the “bus” with side glazing and the BMP case wheels on wheels from TATA - really sad belay
      at least ask the manufacturers what and how you can adapt on the BMP-1 (2) chassis, what are the possibilities.

        It’s just that the Indians at one time were overwhelmed by an itch to do their own thing — airplanes, engines for them, rockets, etc. — they usually get, well, or nothing at all. This itch has also reached armored vehicles. First, after much torment, it turned out the “Arjun”, but now the turn has come to the tracked and wheeled armored vehicles, which we see in the pictures ...

        A lot can be adapted to the BMP chassis, the experience of the Cubans who created a good family of armored vehicles on their basis is especially instructive

    According to experts, most likely, we are talking about modernization with the installation of the Berezhok combat module developed in Russia.

    If so, that’s good. Because, the more a foreign customer orders these modules, the greater the likelihood that domestic MO will join the order.
    He loves with us MO serial export products, in which the chain of subcontractors is established, and all bugs were caught by foreign customers, and the price (due to seriality) is not too high, and delivery times (due to the same established series) are sane.

    Damn, why there is no news about the fact that the grandmothers seized from two arrested governors and one official from the Moscow Region

    We have a rule-of-law state, money is material evidence, lies in the UK or somewhere, and besides, it is necessary to prove that the money was not earned by overwork. Well, or return with an apology (something like Serdyukov-Vasilyeva).

      Well done that they didn’t have the mind to adopt the "shelter" which they developed together with the Israeli regime, in particular the Rafael firmlol
      Especially "kill" the windows in this so-called BMP.

    and just
    they “will receive Russian-made Kornet-E anti-tank systems, as well as new optoelectronic equipment and communication systems”
    belay
    Something else needs to be installed. Definitely an engine with a transmission, a new 30mm gun, active protection.

    Here it pleases, being completed with domestic production. There will be work, there will be a holiday.
