Test drive BMP-3: "Popmeh" at the helm of the famous car

35



Despite many years of success in the market, the car remains unique in its class: starting from the previous BMP-2 hit, the developers radically changed the layout. V-shaped 10-cylinder engine placed on tank manners, over the rear axle. This allowed for better balancing and visibility for the driver and provide additional protection for the landing.

In the immediate vicinity, the BMP looks taller and more massive due to the defiantly upturned nose and high ground clearance, visually balanced by the sidelines extending towards the back. The low-profile tower above the roof creates a feeling of power. Capable of turning all 360 degrees, it carries an 100-mm cannon, an 30-mm automatic cannon and an 7,62-mm machine gun coupled to them tightly, and two triguns grenade launchers of the “Tucha” smoke curtain system, which are rigidly connected in a single mask.

BMP-3 is in service with Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and other countries. For those who value special comfort in the performance of their tasks, the following versions are supplied: commander (BMP-3K), repair and evacuation (BREM-L "Beglyanka"), reconnaissance (BRM-3K "Rys") and others.

Test drive BMP-3: "Popmeh" at the helm of the famous car

In the army
BMP-3 is in service with Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and other countries. For those who value special comfort in the performance of their tasks, the following versions are supplied: commander (BMP-3K), repair and evacuation (BREM-L "Beglyanka"), reconnaissance (BRM-3K "Rys") and others.


None of the machines of this class can boast such armament: a 100-mm cannon that is stabilized in two planes can also contend with the armor of a serious tank. “And we can cover the space with a length of 100 m with a curtain,” adds BMP-3 mechanic-driver, deputy commander of a motorized rifle guard company, senior lieutenant Peter Galaburda, “in fact, a whole platoon of three cars.” The front side of the tower reinforced invoice armor, which, however, does not spoil the contours of the upper part of the body.

About aerodynamics developers cared last: 500 hp "Under the hood" and without that allow the 19-ton car to develop about 90 km / h on the highway and to 10 km / h afloat. The engine can run on both gasoline and kerosene, although diesel fuel is regularly used. It does not shine with economy and consumes about 100 L on 100 km of run, however the 600-liter tank is enough to go to work, to the country and return back without refueling.

“In order even to operate a tank at a basic level, one must learn for a long time,” Peter Galaburda does not hide his pride. “But believe me, you will master the BMP-3 in a couple of minutes.” In fact, the semi-automatic hydromechanical transmission (four front and two rear speeds) allows you not to be distracted by the gear shift and concentrate on driving with the help of a motorcycle-type steering wheel. On it, by the way, there is also a button that allows you to instantly go to a maneuverable turn on the spot.

The first thing that attracts attention is the fantastic acceleration of the car. We did not manage to get data about the acceleration from the spot, but the sensations are hardly deceiving here: one push of the pedal - and the whole armored mass pulls away like a beast ready for throwing. “It was the case, we were competing on the level ground, at the sprint distance, - our BMP-3 against the T-72 and the BTR,” recalls the senior lieutenant. - We came first, broke away into several buildings. In fact, the BTR engine is not so agile, and although the conveyor can gain great speed, it does not start as quickly as the BMP-3.

The fuel tank moved under the front "hood", but safety did not have to be sacrificed: the secret porous material that fills the tank from the inside eliminates the detonation of fuel, even with a direct hit. “In the instructions, he appears simply as a“ compactor, ”says Senior Lieutenant Peter Galaburd. - To the touch something similar to polyfoam ".


Secret "foam"
The fuel tank moved under the front "hood", but safety did not have to be sacrificed: the secret porous material that fills the tank from the inside eliminates the detonation of fuel, even with a direct hit. “In the instructions, he appears simply as a“ compactor, ”says Senior Lieutenant Peter Galaburd. - To the touch something similar to polyfoam ".

The tracked vehicle’s passability is beyond praise. According to the specification, the BMP is able to overcome a ditch to a depth of 2,2 m and a rise to 30 degrees, taking walls of almost a meter height. “The tension of the tracks is controlled separately, and, if necessary, the driver can tighten them without getting out,” says Peter Galaburda. “The indications of many sensors, from engine temperature to oil level, are reduced to a single“ Accident ”light bulb: it will prompt you immediately if something happens, you can stop and look.”

Interior decoration is not different premium, and the passengers should not wait for silence. The automatic loader, located in the center part rotating together with the tower, works with a special crash. If necessary, shooting from the main 100-millimeter cannon can be fought with laser-guided anti-tank missiles, but it will have to be manually charged.



Regular place of the driver is located in the front, on the sides of it - the place of machine gunners who can fire from two course machine guns. The turret has the operator’s gunner’s and the crew’s commander’s seats, and another five people are in the rear of the cabin. The review of passengers is severely limited, which during movement and wild shaking creates noticeable inconveniences and requires the habit of dizziness. In the cold you can use the stove, and export versions supplied to Arab countries are equipped with air conditioning.

However, the promising Kurganets-25 tracked platform, which the Kurganmashzavod developers presented not so long ago, should become much more comfortable. “This is the car of tomorrow,” says Peter Galaburda, who happened to drive the Kurgan at the Victory Parade. “Everything is digital, a bunch of touch screens, and comfort is at a new level.” It remains to wait for a new test drive.

        On the new BMP-3 there is a combat module "Bakhcha-U" - it has more ammunition in the ammunition rack (they stand vertically, not horizontally, as in the old ones) and the missiles are in it, they are loaded with the same automatic machine as the other shots ...

    Article minus. If the author is incompetent, let him at least show it to the consultants or to some editor. This is not a format, even for "Cosmopolitan"

    The V-shaped 10 cylinder engine is placed in a tank-like manner, above the rear axle.
    Over any such axis? In a tracked infantry fighting vehicle? And, yes, of course - the rear axle should be somewhere near the bowsprit. Precisely.

    the 100-mm gun stabilized in two planes is also capable of competing with the armor of a serious tank.
    And if you cheer up the tank before that, the weapon will tear it apart, like a hamster. Did the author hear the word "armor penetration"? And if you haven't heard, let him write about cats ...

    For those who appreciate special comfort in fulfilling the tasks, the following versions are available: commander’s (BMP-3K), repair and evacuation (BREM-L “Beglyanka”), reconnaissance (BRM-3K “Lynx”) and others.
    Dadad, it is with a special level of comfort that they differ. Leather armchairs with massagers are installed in the BRM, and a jacuzzi is also in the commander’s car. And in AREM - a mobile chip.

    secret porous material filling the tank from the inside, eliminates the detonation of fuel, even with direct contact. “In the instructions he appears simply as a“ sealant, ”senior lieutenant Peter Galaburda shrugs his hands. “Something like polystyrene to the touch.”
    Detonation of fuel can be eliminated without any classified material. Liquid fuel in the tank is simply physically incapable of this. Fuel vapors in an empty tank can also detonate ...

    The automatic loader works with a special roar
    And falls by a rapid jack, like the arrow of an oscilloscope.

    In the tower are the seats of the gunner-operator and crew commander, another five landing men are located in the rear of the cabin. Passenger visibility is very limited ...
    commander crew... rear part salon... PASSENGERS... And where about the stewardess? Who delivers coffee to the crew and passengers? Or a flight attendant only in the command vehicle? Apparently, there is the rumble of a loader on such a special ...

          Yes, I didn’t see anything particularly specific about the military. The tracked vehicle is by no means specific and in my opinion it should be clear that it does not have a rear axle. Penetration can be bluntly googled and understand the error, the fact that there is a saloon in the car, and in the BMP, the airborne squad is just as clear from the description and so on. At worst, they would give at least someone who knows a little about the article. IMHO for a civilian who wants to understand, there is no problem understanding such simple and basic terms.

    The first BMP-1 arrived in the Transcarpathian Military District. The infantry was delighted.
    The new division commander (the first to transfer to BMP-1, the son of the USSR Minister of Defense Sokolov), on the parade ground, with the equipment built, gave the command to advance to the concentration area.
    In full dress uniform and moved forward. The standard was met. True, the special officers say there was a rustle in the West. Like "Russians are coming." There was enough controversy then. After all, someone knocked about the advancement of the division to the deployment area, and there you can spit to the border.
    These are the things with the BMP. A serious contraption.

    During the nine years of the war, we lost 147 tanks and 1314 infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers in Afghanistan.
    It would seem that the top military and political leadership should have drawn appropriate conclusions about the quality and ways of modernizing the Russian BMP and armored personnel carriers, but eight years later, the first Chechen war posed the same problems for the army. Only now the main battle tanks on the battlefield were T-72 and T-80. And we have already received a qualitatively different level of losses.
    In just two years of the first Chechen war, the Russian army lost more than 200 (!!!) tanks and almost 400 infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers.
    Let me remind you that eight years before this war in Afghanistan, fighting in the territory superior to Chechnya by almost 10 times against almost 50000 army of mujahideen armed with the USA, China and Pakistan, we had maximum losses: 28 tanks in 1981 and 22 tanks in 1988 and 186 infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers in 1983. And in Chechnya, in just a year and a half, we lost 10 (!!!) times more tanks and 2 times BMP and armored personnel carriers.
    The infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers currently in service with the Russian army not only cannot protect the soldier with armor, but are also unable to reliably cover him with fire. The onboard armament of BMP-1, BMP-2, BTR-80 is not capable of effectively suppressing a defending enemy due to its weak power, and in defense it is not capable of effectively repelling an attacking enemy due to insufficient range and the same low power. Some types of military equipment in general today cause only a bewildered smile - for example, the BMD-1 and BMD-2 airborne forces in service, the "armor" of which is pierced by ordinary company machine guns, and a mine explosion turns them into a pile of twisted metal.
    The existing armored personnel carriers and armored personnel carriers are so poorly protected that, participating in the battle, they themselves become the main object of protection, diverting the main forces of the infantry units to themselves. In the course of hostilities in Chechnya, out of a staff squad of 9 people, at least 5 were "tied" to their standard combat equipment - 3 BMP crews and 2-3 cover people, and sometimes more.
    It is not surprising that today, almost 56 years after the end of the Second World War, the main type of combat for our soldier is still the same "foot order".
    All equipment, at best, should be far behind, or even left behind, and advanced only to positions already captured by infantry. Our infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers have long been turned into a regular means of transporting infantry, moreover, devoid of any amenities.
    Movement under the armor is dangerous due to the fact that when an APC and especially an IFV are hit by a mine or a land mine, virtually the entire crew and the landing party crashes or dies. Therefore, usually the entire landing is seated from above, becoming a convenient prey for shooters and fragmentation mines.

      And you did not think that even a beggar mujahid now has RPG18? Especially in Chechnya to say that the feds fought, I don’t know, they screwed up more thanks to the "brilliant" command, during the New Year's assault on Grozny, so many people were put in an empty space. What else was polished to brilliance in Berlin (the action of tanks and infantry in the city) was reinvented, the outpost of the columns was such that it was practically nonexistent, they went as if there was no war, there was no connection.
      The main reason for the high losses in Chechnya is that the SA was no longer fighting in Chechnya, it was not that magnificent military machine, but only its miserable shadow.

      Regarding the losses in the First Chechenskaya, it has already been noted that they were caused rather by the human factor, and not by the lack of technology. And as far as I am aware, this was manifested not only in illiteracy and, as you know, betrayal of the command, but also in the fact that the fighting personnel were poorly prepared. A number of participants described cases of "preparation" when, for example, the calculations of the RPG-7 were not aware that they needed to be disassembled and cleaned, they simply did not know how and why. Which ultimately led to the failure of the RPG-7. It would seem! Basic skill! But there is no knowledge. What can we say about more complex things like tactics of action in various situations.

      not only cannot protect the soldier with armor, but also are not able to reliably cover him with fire. The BMP-1, BMP-2, BTR-80 airborne armament is not able to effectively suppress the defending enemy due to its weak power, and in defense it is not able to effectively repel the attacking enemy due to insufficient range and all the same low power.


      I agree with bad armor. But with the weapons of the BMP-2 and even more so the BMP-1 is unlikely. The first has a 30mm automatic cannon, which has now become the standard for BMPs in almost the whole world. Allows you to hit infantry and lightly armored vehicles at a considerable distance of more than a kilometer. And the BMP-1 is generally 73mm with a completely different firepower. But the whole point is that they cannot hit a number of targets, this is true. But no one asks them to storm the fortified areas, this is not their business. In Syria, the 125mm cannon of a tank cannot be taken by the fortified area, so you have to drive out the Akatsia self-propelled gun with a 152mm gun and hit it with direct fire. Does this indicate a lack of a tank or that this is not a tank's business?

      a bewildered smile - for example, the BMD-1 and BMD-2 airborne forces, whose "armor" is pierced by ordinary company machine guns,


      Either such armor, or you can’t drop it from an airplane.

      You just ripped off the paragraph from the article and posted it on the VO, thereby losing the meaning of the entire written material.
      In short, then:
      - The first Czech Republic was not a war, but political crap, where they dipped the army.
      - in the second, the Czech armies already more or less untied their hands and did not interfere. Well, what were the losses in the armor? Google it.
      - BMP-1 and BMP-2 were created according to the technical specifications for a specific theater, and not for where they had to be used later.
      - BMD is not a super-duper, but ... heavy weapons that move themselves, and even covered with a little bit of armor. And all this jumps from heaven and rowing on the water (forgive me guys for such rudeness). Don't like BMD? - then carry heavy weapons on your hump.

      Separately, I will say about the "tied" to technology in the Czech Republic:
      No need to feint and mix warm with soft.
      Do not confuse and confuse tactical formations when performing various tasks. If sugar is put in tea, this does not mean that it is an axiom. Instead, what, you can not put honey or jam? or nothing at all.

      It's ugly to mix everything up - a serious combat "material" with a popular fashionable philistine opinion about the army.

      By the way, as a tanker, he was always a supporter of TBMP and TBTR, but SO present the material ... thank you.

      Everything is true, but ... to see the mechanic of the T-72 did not possess the skill of starting with the 3 transmission through 2 using the clutch levers)))

    A V-shaped 10-cylinder engine is placed in a tank-like manner, above the rear axle. This allowed for better balancing and visibility for the driver and provide additional protection for the landing

    It was he hezanul and especially about additional protection

      Right here, everything is written correctly: a powerful frontal sheet that holds a 30mm cannon shell was able to be installed due to the fact that moving the engine back managed to balance the car well.
      With the front engine layout (BMP_1-2), it was not possible to strengthen the frontal armor.

        I meant that the engine located behind provides additional protection to the landing

    And how does the engine "placed on the tank", that is, behind, give "additional protection to the landing" ???

        If it's a joke, then I agree ...))) But seriously, the engine is not there at the full height of the hull ... even in this capacity, the "protection" does not work request

    Fathers, Popmech is a glamorous tech magazine. This is not even "Young Technician" wink To demand from him the accuracy of technical terms and wording is like asking a blonde to have a clear knowledge of the internal combustion engine. wink For an audience reading this magazine, the article is even nothing. wink
