The Company offers a low cost solution to upgrade basic variant of BMP-2 with new armour. The front, rear and side of the vehicle are fitted with passive and reactive armour to increase the protection against modern threats of the battlefield as armour piercing rounds, IEDs and RPG (Rocket-Propelled Grenade).

With its Israeli partner Rafael, the Indian Company has integrated the RAFAEL’s Samson Mk2 unmanned remote weapon station. The new turret is more lighter that the original BMP-2 turret which reduces vehicle weight and increases space inside the vehicle.

Like its predecessor, the Samson Mk II is a dual-axis, gyro-stabilized, dual-sight (Gunner and Commander) remote-controlled weapon system capable of mounting multiple weapons.

The Rafael Samson Mk II turret mounted on the Kalyani upgraded BMP-2 is armed with the 30mm automatic cannon from ATK and two anti-tank missile launchers Spike LR.

SPIKE-LR feature a fiber optic data communication link that provides the gunner with the unique ability to attack hidden targets, update or switch to a more valuable target after launch, achieve pinpoint precision, avoid friendly fire, conduct surveillance/damage assessment, and obtain real-time tactical intelligence. SPIKE-LR has Fire and Forget and Fire capability and can engage targets at up to 4000 m.

The Rafael Samson Mk II turret offers significant improvements, including lower silhouette, optional armour protection, and improved hit accuracy, boosted crew survivability with under-armour reloading, increased rigidity and higher gun elevation capabilities.

The Samson Mk II RWS boosts crew survivability by eliminating deck penetration. Additional crew protection is provided by a dedicated Rafael patent-pending in-hull reloading system. And for the vehicle itself, Samson Mk II RWS’s low-silhouette geometry enables the host platform’s surfaces to easily accommodate protective armor ranging from STANAG Level .1 to 4

The turret includes also two optronic sights MiniPOP (Plug-in Optronic Payload), one for the gunner and the other, providing an independent sight for the commander. Plug-in Optronic Payload (POP) is a modular, compact, competitively priced gyro stabilized day / night observation, surveillance and targeting system.
