Complement armed with two automatic 30-mm grenade launcher AG-17D, located in armored sponsons on the only shelves in the front of the case. Grenade launchers are independent from each other. The fire is separated from each of its gunner manpower and unarmored targets; the attack sector – 28° away from the side. Managing rocket-propelled grenades carried out by remotely using Electromechanical actuators.
Shooting can be carried out along an inclined path to the enemy, ukryta over the hillsides, in ravines, behind any structures. The range of grenade launchers, up to 1400 m. Ammunition – 300 rounds each – like a machine gun stowed in the same tape without reloading.

Complex main armament BMPT allows you to conduct a circular firing purposes with the angle of elevation to 45° , which gives the ability to hit high targets. This is especially important when conducting combat operations in mountainous terrain -dominating heights in urban environments.
The armament is stabilized in two planes, which effectively allows you to fire not only from place, but on the go.
Thus, the BMPT can defend and destroy missiles, tanks and low-flying helicopters at a distance of 5000 m; 30-mm cannons is to destroy the helicopters and lightly armored vehicles at distances up to 2500 m, and vehicles, calculations of the RPG – at distances up to 4000 m; machine guns: calculations based RPGs and vehicles at ranges up to 1600 m; grenade launchers take out the enemy’s manpower over 1400 m.
“Terminator” is equipped with modern automated fire control system (FCS) Frame, has great potential for detection of targets at night and in bad weather at ranges up to several kilometers. It consists of a digital ballistic computer, a set of automatic sensors that constantly monitor the conditions of firing, the automatic tracking of the target.
BMPT “the Terminator”:
1 – surveillance device of the driver of TNP-165; 2 – driver’s hatch; 3 – surveillance device arrow rocket launcher PNK-4; 4 – hatch hand-grenade throwers; 5 – sponson grenade launcher with ammunition; 6 – tower; 7 – block observation devices gunner; 8 – panoramic device commander Б07-K1; 9 – Luke gunner; 10 – wind sensor; 11 – sighting system gunner Б07-K2; 12 – compartment ammunition; 13 – sponson auxiliary diesel-generator; 14-armor screen fenders; 15— the top sheet side of the screen; 16 – the bottom sheet side of the screen
The commander has a panoramic surveillance device Б07-K1 with variable scaling, which involves optical and thermal channels, a laser rangefinder; if necessary, you can connect the TV images from the gunner’s sight on his own display. On the perimeter of the commander’s hatch located five periscope observation devices, TNPO-260 that allows the commander to have a sector of 360°.
Gunner has a sighting system Б07-K2, stabilized in two planes, with 4-and 12-fold increase in integrated TV French company “Thales”, a laser rangefinder, a channel missile guidance. Thus, the gunner has the ability to monitor the target and its recognition, further – aiming, firing ammunition and rocket at the place and on the move, day and night and in poor visibility. Built-in hardware tracking on the basis of sight “Sosna-U” allows the gunner to find a target and make a shot, and then the MSA operates according to the known principle of “fire and forget”, meaning that he can immediately shift its attention to other targets. It has also the observation device TNP-165А.
Side arrow launchers are stabilized in the vertical plane day/night sights PNK-4 “Agat-Mr”, the electron-optical Converter with a 7.5-fold increase.
The driver is equipped with a fluorescent device TNPO-168В, night TVN-5 night and head surveillance device PNV-90V-1M.
Thanks to the MSA information management system allows the commander to share intelligence with the crew, as well as with other machines of the unit.
When designing BMPT much attention was given to improving the view of the area (the battlefield) out of the car. So, the commander’s panoramic sight is installed at a height of 3.2 m from the ground (the initial trajectory of the cannon and machine gun armament is at a height of 2.5 m). The high location of the sight and firepower allowed not only to improve the ability to detect as small and trench targets, but to significantly increase the likelihood of their destruction.
One of the features of the “Terminator” is a modern powerful machine protection. On the upper front part of the hull, in front of the tower and on-Board screens with a modular complex integrated dynamic protection (explosive reactive armour) “Relic”. This complex provides protection against chemical energy attack weapons, and against armor-piercing shells. The elements module (EDZ) are placed between the supporting ribs and spars that are installed on the surfaces. Cover elements of thick high-strength steel, inside everyone there is a charge of EXPLOSIVES (he). When you hit them in the missile generates a stream of high-speed fragments, which force, in turn, will immediately detonate the explosive charge, cast out the cover. The influence on the projectile is enough to substantially reduce its bronirovanie opportunities.
BMPT on the firing line is firing with 30-mm cannon 2A42
Side shields covering almost the entire suspension from the car with the sides made of reinforced rubber, which is pressed on the elements of the DMZ. However, they do not always provide protection from antitank hand grenades, especially when shooting “normal”. Therefore side hung an additional fabric zig-zag screens, also with EDZ. They can be transported on the machine and mounted on the brackets the power only in the context of the upcoming melee.
Side skirts – double row height and can be removed at a time. This is done to facilitate access to the undercarriage.
The side of the exhaust nozzle, shoulder strap mounts, armored plate aft of the hull and the roof over the engine-transmission compartment from falling grenades RPGs protected anti shaped-charge metal grids.
Nizkoprofilnom tower BMPT also covered the tank’s walls on-track shelves, which rise above the roof.
Additional protection of the machine – the complex opto-electronic warfare, tshu-1 “Blind” with a system of aerosol screen (SDR). It includes the alarm module laser irradiation, which allows the crew to react promptly to emerging threats. Its main element is the four indicator-head detection laser beam: two “rough” and two “thin”. First – determine the fact of the laser radiation in a wide range (more than 90°), the second to determine the exact direction of radiation have been discovered in the sector. At the time of the capture beam activated GPA, automatically fired off an aerosol grenade, the explosion forming a cloud filling the car. It reduces, partially reflects the laser light, thereby disrupting homing or complicating actions of the gunner artillery systems and electronic field observers.
The complex “Blind” is effective within 20 s from the moment of identification of a seizure. Three seconds after that grenade ЗД17 forms at a distance of 50 – 80 m from the machine spray a veil of cloud.
Herself fighting machine tank support has a body borrowed from the T-72/T-90. It is characterized by a low silhouette of less than two meters across the roof of the tower. Compact low profile desert tower made of welded, with a special filler.
Office of management and combat lined with several layers of material “Kevlar” to reduce injury to the crew, as well as units inside the hull, fragments of armor when hit by projectiles in the car.
The chassis has undergone a slight change in the direction of amplification. So, the front support roller got reinforced, the tracks put the slant lugs. In the fuel system cleaned the tank-shelf, previously located in the front of the hull, increased fuel capacity to only shelves, etc. the battery was moved to the sponsons only on the shelves.
Enhanced anti-mine protection of the bottom of the machine due to the strengthening of pillerton.
BMPT is equipped with the engine V-92 S2 from T-90 tanks. This is the latest multi-fuel diesel Chelyabinsk tractor factory 12-cylinder four-stroke liquid-cooled with gas turbine supercharging. Capacity of 1,000 HP, the power density is about 0.98 HP/kg, specific fuel consumption – 156 g/HP-HR; engine weight – 1020 kg.
Thanks to this engine machine weight 48 t develops a maximum road speed of about 60 km/h and has a cruising range (with the rear fuel barrels) not less than 550 km.
“Terminator” is equipped with equipment topographic location and navigation, combined with global satellite navigation system NAVSTAR/GLONASS. It includes control panel, computer unit, satellite dish. Current location coordinates of the BMPT are determined with accuracy up to 25 m and are listed on the map traversed by car the route is stored in a computer memory.
The machine is equipped with fast-acting fire protection system and filter-ventilation system, forcing the previously cleaned outside air into the case. During emergency situations it is possible to create inside the machine pressure.
The BMPT crew: the driver, two side hand-grenade throwers, and the commander of the machine – on the starboard side, gunner – to the left of it
If necessary, overcoming minefields on the machine can be hung on the track cutter trawls, type KMT-6M2 or a roller knife mine sweeper KMT-7.
The BMPT crew consists of five people: commander, driver, gunner, two side arrow grenade launchers.
Created by Uralvagonzavod, the BMPT is a new weapons -multi-purpose heavy tracked fighting vehicle fire support with powerful weaponry, perfect fire control system with high maneuverability. Note that this original machine has not yet even in its class and is not included in the nomenclature of the weapons defined in the Treaty on conventional armed forces in Europe (CFE). Because the BMPT is not a “battle tank” since it has a tank gun, but not “armoured vehicle”, because it has a landing Bay. And therefore is not included in the limitations of our armored vehicles provided by the Contract.
At a meeting held in August 2012 in Sverdlovsk, the VII International exhibition of technical means “defense and protection”, held on range “Staratel”, many foreign military experts expressed their interest in such a machine, including of the leading countries of Europe and Asia. Present at the exhibition, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said: “Fighting vehicle “Terminator” is very good and quite maneuverable, which is why many foreign delegations come to admire the woman,” and added: “…a great car with amazing power, in promoting of which I will take personal involvement.”
In June 2012, finally took place on the first European and global representation of the BMPT at the XI International exhibition of arms and military equipment Eurosatory-2012 in Paris. In September of the same year the car was shown at the International exhibition Africa Aerospace & Defence 2012 in South Africa.
“The terminator” comes out from behind the Ural mountains to the international arena.
