BMP-2 Platoon, Kazakhstan August 2004

The BMP-2 is an improved version of the BMP-1 (See picture #3113 for info on the BMP-1) incorporating major armament changes. The new two-man turret mounts a 30-mm automatic gun with a long thin tube and double-baffle muzzle brake that can be used against aircraft and helicopters. An ATGM launcher on top of the turret can employ either AT-4 SPIGOT or AT-5 SPANDREL missiles. Given the enlarged turret, there are two roof hatches in the rear fighting compartment, rather than the four of the BMP-1, and the the BMP-2 accommodates one less passenger. Each side of the troop compartment has three firing ports with associated roof-mounted periscopes.

The BMP-2 is a light amphibious tracked combat vehicle with high mobility and armouring. Its cross-country capabilities are improved due to employment of a different type of tracks and adjustment of the shock absorber. Its armor provides NBC protection of the crew. It is adjusted for air lift.
