BVP M80A Infantry Fighting Vehicle Serbian Army 1

Description

The BVP M-80A infantry combat vehicle is a further development of the M-980 (although in early 1991 this was redesignated the M-80), and was shown in public for the first time at the Cairo defence equipment exhibition held in late 1984. It is believed that the BVP M80A entered production in 1980 as the replacement for the M-980 vehicle and by the time production was completed it is estimated that up to 1,000 vehicles of all types had been completed.

BVP M-80A variants:

- BVP M80AK - same as BVP M80A but fitted with a new one-man turret armed with a 30 mm M86 cannon
- Model 30/2 - This has a new two-man power-operated turret armed with twin 30 mm automatic anti-aircraft cannon and a four man crew
- SAVA low-altitude SAM system - This is the Yugoslav equivalent of the Russian SA-13 SAM system

- BVP M80A KB battalion commander's vehicle - This is the standard vehicle modified for use by the battalion commander with additional communications equipment installed.
- BVP M80A LT anti-tank vehicle - Standard M80A with the turret removed and fitted with a new turret armed with six Yugoslav-built `Sagger' ATGWs in the ready to launch position which have a maximum range of 3,000 m. Mounted between the two banks of missiles is a 7.62 mm machine gun.
- BVP M80A Sn ambulance - This is the standard vehicle with its turret removed and plated over and modified for use in the ambulance role.
- BVP M-80 VK command post vehicle - This command post does not feature the turret installed on the standard BVP M-80A vehicle and has a single hatch at the rear, a telescopic antenna on the right side and six whip antennas.
