Russia is preparing experimental maneuvers with the BMPT “Terminator”

One of the most important innovations of the Russian tank forces is the development of the Terminator tank support combat vehicle (BMPT) in the theater of operations.

This new type of weapon will take part in an experimental exercise scheduled for June 2021 at the Chebarkul training ground in the Chelyabinsk region.

During the exercise, as reported by RT with reference to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, servicemen will work out the tactics of joint work of tanks and BMPT “Terminator”. Until now, such interaction has been studied only within the framework of scientific research, and it is assumed that saturation of tank forces with “Terminators” will significantly increase their combat potential and the protection of tanks in the theater of operations.

“The Terminator tank support combat vehicle is multipurpose and highly protected, with powerful weapons, modern fire control devices and high maneuverability,” RT reports from the Ministry of Defense. “The Terminator is capable of striking lightly armored targets, tanks and infantry fighting vehicles, together with military air defense to fight helicopters and low-flying low-speed aircraft.”

As the editor-in-chief of Arsenal Otechestvo magazine, military expert Viktor Murakhovsky, said in an interview with the agency, the upcoming experimental exercise in Chebarkul is necessary for tank units to develop ways of interacting with BMPT units.

It is impossible to predict in advance what will be the results of the planned exercise, which is organized specifically in order to determine the formula for the possible interaction of BMPT and tanks.

“In any case, the only criterion for truth is practice. Therefore, the research exercises will take place directly at the training ground with the appropriate tactical and target environment, ”the expert explained.

At the same time, the editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine Igor Korotchenko, in a commentary on RT, said that the Russian army is in high demand for such military equipment as the Terminators. Soon, according to him, the Russian military will determine the tactics and the exact number of BMPTs needed.

“The tactics of the combat use of the Terminator still needs to be worked out. After that, we can already expect decisions on the formation of mixed units, where there will be tanks and BMPTs, ”Korotchenko said.

The Russian army, the expert added in conclusion, in such matters relies on both its own experience and global knowledge, which it adapts in accordance with the needs of domestic tank units.
