    You want people to respond. You have to make it contraversial. BMD kills Stryker.

    Well, PR and marketing failures are common here… Actually I tried to avoid vs. type thread but if that‘s the only way I’m opened for discussion.

    Personally, I think you're a bigger person for it.
    You dont even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if the Senate determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.

    Well, they are designed to provide former soviet air assault divisions fire support and protection from small arms and shell splinters. They can be pierced with everything bigger than 12,7 but i'm not sure that thier turrets pop.

    I'm sure of it. I seen it more than once. But they were all BMD1. Yeah I understand there uses. Same as the M113 type vehicles I guess as far as protection. Not really a bad family of vehicles in my opinion. But I'm not up to date on them for the most part. I know nothing about the BMD 4. What kind of FCS does it have.

    kNikS: Judging by amount of ammunition, they should not only pop, it whould tear the whole vehicle apart.

    Guess you’re right about popping. Autoloader is the reason. I’m not sure about BMD-2 and BMD-3 since they have only autocanons.

    Not bad at all. Because of these things all russian air assault divisions are mechanized.

    Its first designation was BMD-3M (before entered serial production), they putted this http://www.shipunov.com/eng/bron/single.htm instead of old BMP-2 turret fitted on BMD-3.

    Here are pages from Jane’s Tanks and combat vehicles recognition guide (unfortunately earlier edition):
    http://www.aeronautics.ru/archive/ar...cles/bmd-1.htm
    http://www.aeronautics.ru/archive/ar...cles/bmd-3.htm (note that text below the pictures for BMD-3 isn’t the right one)

    And few more interesting links:

    Is that a coaxial heavy machine gun? If so why is it secured to the main gun?

    Hey Kniks, during master gunner school, we were told that the BMD series of vehicles is air dropable with the crew inside. Is this true?

    Let me rephrase this. I'm sure its possiable but does it happen?
