    because for some reason the russians keep sending T-72s into close combat against BTRs, instead of taking full advantage of their 2km engagement range

        because the stryker turret does not enter the vehicle
        so all of its mechanical components and ammunition has to be within the confines of the turret

        the 30mm bushmaster is also much beefier than the 30mm 2A72, about 50kg heavier
        though it is supposed to be accurate out to 3km, whereas the 2A72 is only rated up to 2km
        and the bushmaster is future-proofed to up to 40mm cannon rounds

        From what I can tell, it's because the turret is a complete, self-contained package. It doesn't actually extend into the hull at all, all the ammo and optics and stuff are in the turret.

            not really

            when guns have thermal sights that let them see a vehicle against a colder background with high contrast then being slightly taller does not make a big difference
            the only time it would matter is at extremely long range where the apparent size of the vehicle will be smaller than the spread of the weapon, but at those ranges you would rather use a missile

            and obviously, AFVs do not stand in the open while firing
            they can drastically reduce their profile using the arcane and unknowable tactic of covering their lower hull with a wall or mound of dirt

          • 2 months ago
            Anonymous

            during the age of analog optics and manual sighting having a lower vehicle profile was more of an advantage but in the modern day it is becoming less and less relevant if your APC/IFV is 6 feet tall or 8 feet tall.
            You are either going to be fighting dirt people with no equipment and organization beyond making IEDs and shooting at you with chink RPGs or you are going to be fighting an organized forced who will have at a minimum quad copter drones, thermal detection equipment etc

            Having more armor, weapons, troop space, etc is worth being 3.5% easier to see at 300m with the naked eyeball because by that point you have probably already been spotted by any of the countless forms of electronic observation and targeting that are only becoming more and more prevalent and cheaper

                profile can be negated by simply firing from cover whenever you have the chance and only exposing the hull in short dashes between cover
                which is mostly what happened, tank combat was usually heavily one-sided as the ambushers were virtually unseen and the victims rarely even got a chance to fire back at all

                and being harder to hit when you are out in the open was more of a welcome benefit to soviet planners
                reduced silhouette was just a small bonus from making the smallest tank they could
                because the larger advantage in smaller size is that its easier to armor, a smaller proportion of its total weight is dedicated to armor

              it matters to an extent but it is often over considered because of the importance the soviets placed on it, when in reality as you pointed out it can often be sacrificed to a degree for better capabilities in other areas, within reason of course a totally rectangular 30 foot tale vehicle would have a lot of downside for example even beyond being much easier to identify but that is an extreme example

                soviets made smaller tanks so that they could be more efficiently armored
                reduced silhouette was a secondary concern at most

                even in the 1970s, they could accurately hit targets up to 2km using only their optical sights while combat in europe was expected to only take place at 1.5km due to constricted sightlines
                so its obvious no amount of size reduction would make a meaningful difference

                it means that the dispersion of the cannon is a lot smaller than the target you are firing at
                so in this case, even if you made the tank 20% smaller it would still not be smaller than a typical grouping of shots

                and this was at ranges well beyond what was expected to occur
                when your guns were designed to hit targets at 2km, then size will have no effect on

                you are better off getting more gun depression so that you can go hull down on gentler slopes

You haven't posted a single example of a Russian captured BTR-4 and you originally were clearly confused or trying to blur the line between BTR-4's and BTR-80/82 despite the fact that they're completely different systems. The BTR-3 was based on the older Soviet era BTR's but the BTR-4 is a completely new system with some massive improvements in layout, power pack, protection, etc.

                Again, no. BTR-80's are completely different vehicles, or rather BTR-4's are completely different vehicles than BTR-80's and aren't a variant of BTR-80's. If you were arguing the BTR-3 there might be some ground, but as I said in the post that you mostly ignored while goal post moving, the BTR-4 is a completely new vehicle.

                Semantics. They are all the same family of vehicles.

                Because the BTR-4 is the one that is performing the best in theater. However the other BTRs are also showing themselves to have an important role. I posted some BTR -80s because I like posting actual pictures of the war and older BTRs are more common.

                No. If anything it's showing that the old lay out BTR-80's suck ass in everything but mobility. Protection sucks, armament (mostly FCS/optics sucks), etc and that the BTR-4 mogs the BTR-3 which mogs the BTR-80 series.

                The first lesson is that having an APC/IFV that troops can actually be in without being massive death traps and which they can ingress/egress easily is vital for the role (and something the Russians still don't have a production wheeled APC or IFV which meets this role).

                The second lesson is that having an auto cannon with an actual FCS and thermals matters (not surprising).

                These are lessons that Russia should've learned from the Soviet-Afghan war, let alone Chechnya and later Dagestan... It wasn't until the Bumerang that Russia had semi-modern wheeled eight wheeled APC fulfilling the role but Russia has completely failed to produce these.

                I mean there are a few lighter wheeled APC's and MRAP's that Russia's made but they're mostly for internal security because Russia doesn't take care of it's Churka problem (mainly the Typhoon series).

                If Russia actually made the Bumerang, then it's be a different story. Fact is the BTR-80 was outdated when it went into product and the later upgrades like the 82/82A are stop gaps that don't fix the protection/crew issues and barely address the armament/FCS issue.

                There is massive difference in layout of the vehicles. Engine in BTR-4 is in front of infantry compartment, that means it can have rear doors for dismounts. In commie era BTR's engine is in the rear, getting out of the vehicle is from the side hatches/doors. That limits how fast and how safely infantry can enter or exit vehicle. Apparently remote weapon station used in BTR-82A sucks, it is also used in modernized BMP-1AM's. BTR-4's armor is substantially heavier than BTR-80 series.

                Again, no. BTR-80's are completely different vehicles, or rather BTR-4's are completely different vehicles than BTR-80's and aren't a variant of BTR-80's. If you were arguing the BTR-3 there might be some ground, but as I said in the post that you mostly ignored while goal post moving, the BTR-4 is a completely new vehicle.

                Words have meaning. A vehicle fulfilling a similar role (which the BTR-80/82 isn't even in the same role as the BTR-4 since the latter leans heavily more into IFV territory and the former leaning heavily into APC) is not the same as one being a variant of the other.

                Exactly! everybody knows you are saying retarded opinions. These vehicles don't have the same capabilities, ergo not equivalent
                They might be used for the same roles, that doesn't make them equivalent, retard [and probably a vatnig]

                Completey missing the point, that BTR-3E was a Russian capture being pressed back into service. Just like this BTR-4, both sides have been using BTR-4s. You gusy should focus on the prospect of never being a woman because you obviously cannot handle a simple discussion.

                Orly moron? That there have been a small number of BTR-4's captured by Russian forces long enough to paint Z's on and then promptly abandon them which somehow translates to Russia using them operationally (something you've failed to provide evidence for).

It's all you have to ask. The US wasn't resorting to using captured Iraqi T-72s on the outskirts of Umm Qasr eight months into the war...

      Russia does not use BTR-4. Donbassers do because they get all the oddball hand-me-downs that does not fit into the Russian army logistics chain. So captured ukie T-64 end up with donbassers together with ukie Bukephalos (BTR-4). The Russians took an entire brigade worth of abandoned T-64 and BTR-4 around Kherson in the very first day of the war. The ukies had all deserted, first their officers ran, then the men, once they discovered that they had been abandoned. This is why RT was banned in NATO countries, because they made a video report of it.
