Denmark buys 309 BTR Piranha V

56
In early December, the Danish Ministry of Defense signed a contract with General Dynamic for the purchase of 309 Piranha V armored personnel carriers with a wheel formula 8х8, a blog reports bmpd with reference to the press service of the military department.

The contract value is $ 662 million, and the delivery time is from 2018 to 2023. Most of the machines will be assembled in Denmark.

“The specific configuration of the selected vehicles is not reported, however, judging by the relatively low cost of the contract, only armored platforms will be purchased for it, and weapons systems and combat modules will be purchased separately,” the blogger notes.

It was reported that Piranha V was selected on the basis of a competition, which also included the Nexter Systems VBCI (8x8) wheeled armored vehicle and the FFG Flensburger Protected Mission Module Carrier G5 tracked vehicles, BAE Systems Armadillo and General Land European Land Systems - Santa Barbara Sistemas ASCOD.

              Do not need a "Vampire", enough tandem cumulative grenade RPG-7. If in board or stern. In the forehead, "Abrams" is still impenetrable.

      I wonder if there are other threats besides a grenade launcher

      what can threaten modern BTT in combined arms combat against partisans (escorting convoys, etc.)

      which armored vehicle will stand 12,7 DShK
      14,5 KPVT?
      7,62 with heat-strengthened core?
      or a homemade WU on the side of the road with a capacity of 5 kg in TNT equivalent?

      this machine is primarily intended for transporting personnel, and not for a frontal attack on the enemy in the trenches.
      And her characteristics are impressive. Currently in service with 20 countries and has been mass-produced since 1976.
