Experience in the use of armored vehicles in the armed conflicts of recent years shows that the complex is set on her arms sometimes effective enough to defeat the dispersed and camouflaged targets: grenade, machine-gun, anti-tank operators and snipers. Even with outdated weapons all of the objects are for tanks, armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles real danger, even more so in villages Fri, mountains and forests. Wherever aimed fire, almost always, is revealed at once.
Now in Russia created unique in its features fighting vehicle fire support that the exhibition IDEX-2011 showed "Rosoboronexport". She has a special groove protection from anti-tank weapons and a powerful set of weapons to destroy enemy personnel and low-flying and hard targets, oppression, anti-tank weapons before they engage in an intense action. On the qualities and complex tasks performed Russian machine analogues in the world has. Not in vain, as representatives of the Russian media dubbed it the Terminator.
BMPT set for action in different types of contractions in the infantry and tank units. With all this BMPT main task is the oppression and winding up unsafe for tanks manpower (TOZHS). The introduction of 100 mm 2A70 GTC in the main armament BMPT coupled with a tremendous opportunity to provide ammunition to hit targets at a distance nestled up to 5 thousand meters. When using the AP 2A72 at a distance of up to 2.5 thousand meters provide an effective inhibition of goals. Delivered in a tower 40 mm grenade launcher allows you to perfectly destroy enemy personnel at a distance of up to two thousand meters when firing from a fixed location and on the move.
The defeat of infantry fighting vehicles and tanks at a distance of up to five thousand meters is provided by the introduction triggered by GTC 2A70 rockets "Arkan". Just for the destruction of the armored vehicles of the enemy anti-tank systems installed on BMPT "Cornet" installed in special protected from shrapnel and bullets containers. In both versions of weapons provided by the designated opportunity effective against low-flying aircraft and helicopters for tactical trajectory slope at a distance of up to 4 thousand meters.
At the preparatory stage of field trials evaluated the effectiveness of protected defeat of enemy fire in the conduct of the GTC, AH, AP.
Modern instruments targeting and monitoring, and more rassredotachivanie between all members of the crew of their areas of responsibility are allowed to fit to detect and identify enemy targets. The weapon ensures the simultaneous firing on the 3 goals. This means that the 3 crew members have every chance to lead independent fire on targets in the Gaza found 360 degrees. In other words, the highest performance BMPT guaranteed by the multi-channel complex weapons.
Increased attention in the development of a unique machine was given to the degree of protection of the crew. Due to comparable small size and coloring of the deforming fighting machine is hardly noticeable. The integrated dynamic protection significantly increases the level of protection as armor-piercing shells and cased cumulative weapons, anti-tank missiles cumulative separate warheads. Automatic setting screens is additional protection from artillery shells with semi-active laser homing missiles and anti-tank guided missiles. Once formed interference artillery systems, equipped with laser range finders.
The sides of screens BMPT completely covered with reactive armor and special latticed screens, which in totality with armored compartments located on the sides of the body provide a strong protection of the crew from the RPG. Fuels inside and outside of the machine is located in a massive armored compartments. Feeding projection closed latticed screens. Protection Crew from the penetration of fragments inside the hull and turret are guaranteed Ballistic fabric screens.
Ignoring the impressive presence of armored protection, combat machine has the highest mobility and maneuverability. This happened to reach through the installation of an improved four-stroke diesel engine of 1000 hp Turbo and the cooling liquid, perfect chassis and boxes to ensure smooth operation and a high degree of permeability.
It is worth noting the fact that the modular arrangement provides the main armament opportunity to install it on different types of tank chassis. For example, in the case of modernization of tanks. When you change the level of protection and the mass of the module, it can also be put on the light chassis (BMP) or a light-duty vehicles.
But who and what form will order this car, time will tell. Now based on the results of the tests say one thing: the introduction BMPT allow greatly increase the combat abilities units reduce the loss of people and technology, and most importantly — perfectly solve all combat tasks.
