Description
The BMP-T/BMPT also nicknamed Terminator 1 is a fire support vehicle designed and manufactured by the Russian main battle tanks (MBT) manufacturer Uralvagonzavod. The BMP-T fire support vehicle is used to provide fire support to tank and motorized riflemen units and to detect and eliminate low-observable and scattered targets (primarily, enemy`s manpower equipped with small arms and anti-tank weapons) on the battlefield. It features an armament suite that allows destructing of heavy-protected platforms (tanks and tank-based vehicles), fortifications, and aerial targets. However, the detection of low-observable targets and their well-timed elimination are the primary tasks set before the BMP-T fire support vehicle. BMPT can be used in tank formations or separately. A tank unit equipped with BMP-Ts features advanced efficiency, as enemy`s well-protected vehicles and fortifications are destroyed by MBTs, while manpower, anti-tank-systems, and soft-skin vehicles by BMP-Ts. The separate usage of fire support vehicles envisages dismounted troops combat efficiency boosting, conveys securing and escorting, and eliminating of terrorists. The BMP-T`s crew composition and its disposal in the vehicle, observing and sighting systems, and the armament suite provide well-timed detection and elimination of targets on the move in poor visibility conditions by day and night. The vehicle can quickly detect and eliminate three different targets in simultaneous mode, owing to three operators. The commander manages the targeting process; he can conduct firing in dual control mode also. The BMP-T was delivered to the Russian army, beginning in 2005.

Fitted on either side of the turret are two missile launchers for the Ataka anti-tank guided weapon. These missiles have a maximum range of 5,800 m and can be fitted with various types of warhead including tandem high explosive anti-tank, thermobaric and continuous rod high explosive.The BMP-T is also armed with two 30 mm AGS-17 automatic grenade launcher. Turret traverse is electrically powered through 360º with weapon elevation from -5 to +45º. Five electrically-operated 81mm grenade launchers model 902A are mounted on each side of the turret in the hull section.
Design and protection
The BMP-T is based on the chassis of the well-known T-72 MBT which is used in large numbers by the Russian Army and has been manufactured under licence by many countries. The BMP-T has a crew of five with driver is seated at the front of the vehicle in the centre. To the left and right of the driver's position is a seat for the 30 mm grenade operator and commander and gunner are located in the turret. The protection of the BMPT is superior to most MBTs, as active and passive protection is used, and additional armor (the vehicle lacks a turret), is distributed to the hull of the vehicle. The vehicle features advanced protection suite that shield the crew from anti-tank munitions. BMPT has tank-level basic armour. Its front part is not weakened by a firing port intended for tank gun. The sides of the vehicle are additionally protected by explosive reactive armour. The BMPT`s protection suite actually exceeds the tank`s one. The rear part of the vehicle features bar-slat armour.
Mobility
The power pack of the BMP-T , mounted at the rear, consists of a B92C2 four-stroke multifuel diesel with liquid cooling and supercharging, develops 1,000 hp and gives the vehicle a power-to-weight ratio of 21.2 hp/tonne. The BMP-T use the same chassis as the main battle tank T-72, the torsion bar suspension each side consists of six roadwheels with the idler at the front, drive sprocket at the rear and three return rollers supporting the inside of the track only. The vehicle can cross a ditch of 2.6-2.8 m, a wall of 0.85 m, and a water obstacle with a depth of 1.2 m.
Accessories
Standard equipment of the BMPT-T includes NBC system, 5 kW diesel generator, which is mounted in an armoured compartment on the right side of the hull and an automatic two-shot fire detection and suppression system. The vehicle`s fire control system based on a multichannel sight (incorporates optical and thermal imaging channels) and a panoramic low-profile thermal imaging sight allows gunner and commander to detect and identify small-sized targets at long distances by day and night and in harsh climatic conditions. The BMPT is also equipped with a laser detection system.
