    I agree. Now that they are putting expensive new night vision stuff and computers in these vehicles maybe they will think less about amphibious capability and more about protecting their investment and their troops

    That's not Putin in disguise. That's Putin's long-lost Asian brother.

    Damn, that's some serious inferiority complex there.

    That's an interesting coat of arms you got as your avatar, what does it represent?

    Does the BMP-3 not solve most of those problems? The BMP-3 side armour should stop 7.62mm AP rounds.

    Definitely, assault rifle fire is easily stopped unless I am mistaken. Side hull should be much better against 12.7 than BMp-1 and 2 as well, and this is without the numerous up-armoring kits available for it. Front armor is a world ahead too.

    EDIT: with passive additional armor 12.7 AP from 50meters will not pierce. This is the minimum that needs to be adopted IMO.

    I'm not a supporter nor I'd want an organisation like that to be revived but the insignia is powerful - an echo of the old, less PC times. In addition, the provoking message fits my MP.net personality rather well (). As for what it represents..well, it's pretty clear from the picture that it's the Finnish white guard/anti-communist beating the Russian (communist) bear with a club.

    Never been fired upon in real life, however we had several old hulls on the range for RPG training. We fired at them with what was available to us, from AK to PKM, i don't remeber any holes been made. The closest one afair 100m, farthest at 400 meters far..

    Yes, they were all positioned that way, exept for the farthest one, facing towards us.

    No holes from AK and PKM seems plausible, but surely an RPG would penetrate even the front easily.

    I think he means they were there intially for RPG aiming purposes, but as it happened to be they used their light arms on it, which produces no penetrations.

    RPG would penetrate any part of 'vanilla' BMP-1.

    On the subject of BMP armor, these projects look like the right direction.
