Modernization of BMP-2 with the module "Berezhok" can begin next year


“By the end of the year, all tests should be completed. And we are starting next year to begin their mass production for the Russian army ",
said Khokhlov.

At the same time, he clarified that “the contract with the Ministry of Defense of Russia has not yet been concluded, since the machines have to confirm the declared characteristics in the framework of the tests”.

The deputy director recalled that "the new combat module is the initiative development of the KBP based on the BMP-2 serial tower."

According to him, the “Berezhka” includes, in particular, “launchers of anti-tank missiles“ Kornet-E ”and a new fire control system”.

    A full-scale model of the Berezhok combat module was presented at the Oboronexpo-2014 arms exhibition in the exposition of the Tula Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) of the High-Precision Complexes holding. The combat module increases the combat capabilities of the BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicle approximately 3-4 times. The main direction of modernization of the BMP-2 with the Berezhok combat module is the installation of an automatic all-day fire control system with the Kornet guided weapon system, which ensures the defeat of heavily armored targets at ranges of up to 8 km, as well as air targets at ranges of up to 10 km.
    Currently, the High Precision Complexes holding is promoting the BMP-2M to the world market. The first export contract for the modernization of the BMP-2 to the level of the BMP-2M "Berezhok" was obtained from Algeria. For the ground forces of this country, more than 300 BMP-2 are being modernized into a landing version of the BMP-2M "Berezhok". Serial production of the Berezhok module has been launched at the Izhevsk Mechanical Plant, which also produces the Bakhcha weapon system for BMD-4M airborne combat vehicles.

      armament is good, but why is there no defense upgrade?
      BMP-2 used to provide some protection, but now?
      why there are no measures to improve its protection?
      Well, let's say a full-fledged anti-tank missile is hard to stop, but what about the rest?
      NATO has launched a series of light weapons, piercing BMP-2 in the forehead
      is it really impossible to develop some kind of mounted sets that significantly improve protection in the forehead, in the city? Any screens, hinged panels, DZ, etc. Is it so difficult to raise protection even to the level of heavy machine guns and 20-30mm cannons?
      why do we have bmp-2 with standard armor cut even in very dangerous places?

    Dear, I did not understand, there was information that they were already rearming, that they were "pulling", and the module with a 57mm cannon, for another 3 years they will be rolling at exhibitions, what is not quickness, the module has long been ready, tested, I don't understand

    Apparently that news about 57mm was a fake or "Wishlist" of the author of the news. In reality, Berezhok is not yet joining the troops. BMP-3s are made for a long time and a little, and change the banks for 1-2 BMPs faster and apparently cheaper.

    Firepower rises, but there wasn’t any reliable armor either.

    the right thing is to replace everything with T-14, T-15, Kurganets will not pull economy or industry in a short time.
    And here the module is replaced and becomes modern in terms of firing capabilities.
    But to make all military equipment on the basis that it should withstand shelling from ATGMs or RPGs is at least stupid, not to mention the financial side of the issue.

      Yes, no one doesn’t mind, the question is why it takes so long, I suspect that it’s more necessary for border contracts than the MO, because there is loot, the business is necessary, but where is its own, why is the Saudis full of BMPs, and there are few in their army

      And no one will change everything to Kurganets or T15. They don’t even plan. To make it clear. All equipment that is in service with our army can be divided into 5 categories. Well, for example, consider the example of tanks.
      1. Old Soviet tanks that will not be modernized, and as resources expire or new ones are received, they will be decommissioned or sent for storage - T80, T64, etc.
      2. Old Soviet tanks, which are recognized as having modernization value, which will be capitalized and modernized - T72 of different years and types (T72b, T72a and so on).
      3. Tanks that have undergone modernization and overhaul. This is the basis of future tank units of the Russian Federation. Accordingly, now it is t72b3. This will be the most massive tank according to the plans of the Moscow Region.
      4. New tanks, essentially a transitional generation, which are now armed with elite units and units standing in dangerous directions. These are different types of t90.
      5. The latest T14 armored tanks, which, after being adopted, will begin to enter elite units and units that are in dangerous directions. Accordingly, t90 of these parts will begin to be transmitted to other parts. By the way, here I personally do not expect T90 purchases for our army in any form.
      For the main types of technology, the situation is about the same. As for fighters, what for armored vehicles. The basis of our army in the next 10 years will be the old unfused and modernized models. Deliveries of the latest and new weapons to different types of troops will be calculated depending on the modernization potential of the old equipment and its availability. soldier

        Eka you like. Well, the T-64 has long been withdrawn from combat units in reserve. But the T-80 is in no hurry, since there is no better BS for the tank in the northern and especially arctic conditions.

        Which, frankly, warns. Since the T72B3 is already outdated, especially in terms of security.

          T80 in Omsk is no longer produced and they are not unified with the T72. Th, they will definitely change. And already a large part has already been removed from service and sent for storage. T64 last year were in service with the same coastal troops in a small number. As for combat, I’ll take my word for it, but any war — 80 percent is logistics and supply. No one will keep the voracious and not unified with the T72 main tank tank.
          As for the t72b3 - it may not be an armata, but we can have a lot of them. And this is the main thing. 2-3 T72B3 is better than one T90. We have almost 10 thousand tons of 72 different models in storage and armament - this is the strength of our tank units, and not piece armatures or something. Cheap modernization, and most importantly kapitalka, is quite within our power. Moreover, this is an extras for the big war, and for local wars and operations there are T90 in the future, too.
          The tiger was much cooler than the t34, but the war ended in Berlin, because we were able to rivet a lot of t34, and the Germans were few in number. Tch 2-3 t72b3 of the abrams are exactly kicked off, albeit individually they are weaker in tth. Logistics, supply and unification rule. soldier

            Yes? And the weapons used and, accordingly, ammunition? Yes, and the T72 has long been discontinued.

            T64 last year were in service with the same coastal troops in a small number.

            Which ones? If only BV Black Sea Fleet, but something is doubtful, the T64 painfully loves "repair". And since their manufacturer was "abroad", they were removed from our units in the first place, since there are enough other tank models.

            What country do you live in? Wake up. This USSR could afford an army of peacetime in 3 and 5 million. Yes, and count on the troops of the Warsaw Treaty. Now we must learn to fight only by ABILITY, and not by number. We do not have a superiority in forces in more than one strategic direction. So, for me, 2-3 T72B3 is WORSE worse than 2-3 T90A. And 2-3 T90A is WORSE worse than 2-3 T90MS.

            Cheap modernization, and most importantly kapitalka we are quite capable of

            We are able to bring all tanks, including the T80, during the modernization to bring to the level of T-90MS. Stop saving on the lives of our soldiers.

              Dear, you’re right, but for a long, very long time we figured out what kind of army we need, finally decided on the concept of development, finally realized that the army is a condition for the existence of the state, but now the possibilities do not meet the needs and God forbid that we have time

    I wonder how many cars are going to upgrade? There are 4500 of them in the ground forces alone.

    Trains - until the first meeting with TOW or Cornet. Protection against anti-tank systems is criminally inadequate. The machine, as the war in Syria has shown, does not meet modern realities.

    And against the "axes" sooo not pull

    It is logical to assume that the best is the enemy of the good wink ! The old thing in the new packaging is good for sale somewhere, but you need more modern in your army! (and I agree to the beautiful packaging winked )

    Dear, that's exactly what we need to fight with what we have, and here it is no longer up to the "wishes", but on the other hand, why are the tanks being upgraded not equipped with already developed, tested protection systems, after all, it will not be possible to return to this and Ukraine and Syria have confirmed, here to save can't

    "modernized". "Berezhok" is a great option. And not only for our army, but also for their export.
    Algeria has 300 and wants to have another 2017 vehicles with "Berezhk" by 360: Upgraded BMP-2M (from BMP-1) of the Algerian army on the territory of the BCL armored repair plant of the Ministry of Defense of Algeria in Blida. year 2013.

    The contract with Algeria was signed in 2005 !!! In the yard 2016, and our generals are all thinking of buying a BMP2M with a module or waiting for it to confirm something! Comes to funny.

    This is better than it was, but not enough for our time, it is necessary to supply new weapons to the troops, and not to modernize the equipment of the 70s! All this is the greed of our capitalists! Everything is at a minimum, everyone saves their huge capital illegally! People and the country are financed by them according to the residual principle!
