Kurganets-25 to replace BMP-3

1

Russia signed a contract for the supply of Kurganets-25 armoured infantry fighting vehicle. Kurganets-25 tracked armored vehicle provides high degree of commonality with the new Armata tank. The Kurganets-25 will evolve into various models, gradually replacing BMP and BMD and MT-LB and other types of tracked armored platforms. The Kurganets-25 will have modular armor that can be upgraded for specific threats, be armed with a 2A42 30 mm autocannon, and have four Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile launchers.

The Kurganets-25 is fully amphibious, being propelled in the water by two water-jets at the rear of the hull. The vehicle uses a new technology for amphibious operation which increases the speed in the water up to 10 km/h.
