    BTR-3DA Light Armored Assault
    - A +
    Ukroboronprom’s “Kyiv Armored Plant” has transferred a new batch of BTR-3DA to the National Guard of Ukraine, following the acceptance tests of the assault vehicles manufactured under the state defense order.

    According to the results of acceptance tests – in accordance with the decision of a special commission of customer’s representatives – the batch of light armored vehicles was transferred to the National Guard of Ukraine, the Ukrainian defense industry announced last week.

    Tests were conducted at one of the proving grounds of Kyiv region. In the framework of the program, work of all systems of each fighting vehicle was tested in accordance with engineering and operational documentation.

    BTR- 3DA marched along the roads and cross-country, overcoming trenches, track bridges and special obstacles, performed target kill, using standard weapon.

    BTR-3DA is equipped with combat module “Sturm-M” with 30-mm ZTM-1, with a rate of fire of 330 rounds per minute. Targeting with modern digital laser complex with range finder and gun stabilizer ensure high accuracy of fire in all firing modes.

    In addition, the combat module “Sturm-M” is equipped with a 7.62-mm machine gun and automatic grenade launcher, as well as the set of guided weapons “Barrier,” providing armor penetration not less than 800 mm- not including dynamic protection – at the distance of 5 km . This allows BTR-3DA crew to destroy any enemy armored vehicles.

    In 2016 UOP SE ” Kyiv Armored Plant” manufactured for Ukrainian military more than fifty vehicles of new BTR-3.

    During 2016 the plant repaired about 140 armored vehicles and other types of heavy weapons. Most of those were repaired by the repair crews, restoring military equipment directly in the field conditions of ATO area.


    The state enterprise “Kyiv Armored Plant” completed arrangement of a completely new plant for production of hulls for BTR-3.For this purpose the enterprise organized a modern assemble-welding production. Due to the new stage of production the plant has an opportunity to increase manufacture, reduce costs and lay a new technological potential of the enterprise.

    The brand new portable anti-tank missile system Corsar has been tested at one of the military grounds in the interests of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to Kyiv's Luch State Design Bureau.

    "The Corsar missile system has successfully hit an armored tank-type target at a distance of more than 2,000 meters in a strong side wind. All damages were made in the upper armored target sheet, which ensures the complete destruction of the combat vehicle," the enterprise said on Facebook.


    It is noted that the result of the Corsar test was excellent.

    Kyiv's Luch State Design Bureau is engaged in a project to equip the Ukrainian military with the Stugna and Corsar brand new anti-tank missile systems.

    https://www.unian.info/war/2077451-how-anti-tank-weapons-are-shaping-donbas-conflict-experts.html

    Last week, reports emerged in the United States that both the Pentagon and State Department are pressuring the White House to send Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine to bolster their defenses against the tank-reliant Russian-led separatist forces. However, Ukraine has taken several steps toward developing and modernizing its own anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launchers, DFRLab reports.


    [​IMG]

    The “Javelin question” has hung over two White House administrations, with even Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko himself asking for 1,240 Javelin anti-tank missiles, DFR Lab wrote.

    The two largest single battles of the Ukrainian conflict — both of which led to substantial defeats for the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) — were the August 2014 Battle of Ilovaysk and the January-February 2015 Battle of Debaltseve. In both of these battles, Russia deployed hundreds of well-trained servicemen from tank and motorized infantry brigades to operate sophisticated equipment, most notably T-72B3 tanks and, to a far lesser extent, T-90A tanks. The strongest calls for the transferring of Javelin missiles to Ukraine came during and immediately after the Battle of Debaltseve, in which Russia’s tanks and the participation of its 5th and 6th Tank Brigades and 37th Motorized Infantry Brigade led to a rout of Ukrainian forces and the Russian-led separatist capture of Debaltseve, a key railway hub.

    But the threat of another offensive lingers, and this threat has led to a number of innovations and new lines of production for ATGM launchers in the UAF.

    As DFRLab recently reported, Ukraine modernized its military forces with upgrades and increased production rates for ATGM launchers, including the Stugna-P and RK-3 “Corsar.”

    The Stugna-P was originally developed in 2011 during the Viktor Yanukovych presidency, and is now back in production since the Russian annexation of Crimea and Russia’s participation in the war in eastern Ukraine.

    A video from the defense manufacturer Ukroboronprom shows the Stugna-P in action, 2,000 meters away from its target.


    The Ukrainian news site Slovo i Dilo has reported on the Stugna-P, praising how it is manufactured within Ukraine and without any parts from Russia. The 130mm weapon has a higher caliber than that allowed by the Minsk Agreements, thus making its deployment on the front lines a violation of the peace accords. However, ATGMs have received far less attention from monitoring groups than unguided artillery systems have, due to differences in the danger posed to civilian lives and property.

    The Ukrainian defense manufacturer Luch has been developing the RK-3 Corsar system for years, with new videos of prototypes of the yet-to-be-deployed system appearing on the manufacturer’s social media pages. Luch shared a video of a Corsar prototype in action in July 2017.


    With the arrival of Javelins far from a certainty, Luch has focused on how ATGM systems can be made in Ukraine, with Ukrainian components and specifically for the UAF.

    The Stugna-P and the RK-3 Corsar ATGM systems were both successfully tested during July 2017 Ukrainian military exercises.


    Speaking of potential effect Javelins would have on the ground, the experts say that they would not change the calculus on the front lines, as neither side is currently using motorized equipment to take new territory. In fact, with their entrenched positions and their lack of major movement, both Ukrainians and Russian-led separatist forces are more often using tanks and anti-tank missiles as makeshift artillery, rather than for their primary intended purposes.

    There is no shortage of tanks among the Russian-led separatist armaments, but few ever cross the front lines, where they would be most vulnerable to Javelin missiles. Thus, it is hard to believe that the appearance of Javelins on the front lines would give a distinct advantage to the UAF in pushing back Russian-led separatist forces in hotspots such as Avdiyivka or Novoazovsk.

    Javelin missiles would instead, theoretically, act as a deterrent for future Russian-led separatist offensives similar to those offensives launched in Ilovaysk or Debaltseve.

    The Ukroboronprom State Concern over three years has transferred to the Ukrainian army almost 16,000 units of military equipment and weapons, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said.

    "The Ukrainian army has become stronger by almost 16,000 units of military equipment and weapons thanks to the Ukroboronprom State Concern," Poroshenko wrote on his Facebook page.

    The enterprise itself wrote on its website that they transferred 15,903 units of weapons and military equipment to the Ukrainian army. So, from July 2014 to July 2017, Ukrainian troops received 5,281 units of new and modernized equipment, 7,164 units of repaired and restored ones, and received 3,448 spare parts and assemblies.

    The new and modernized weapons and military equipment mostly consists of missile and artillery weapons, as well as missiles and ammunition – 1,061 units and 2,613 units, respectively.

    The military also received 1,277 of new and modernized radar systems, electronic warfare and communications equipment, 295 armored vehicles, artillery and special equipment, as well as 35 units of aircraft and equipment.
