Since the year 2013, the Algerian has bought a significant number of land military equipment from Russia including 38 Pantsir-S1 air defense missile/cannon systems, 100 SA-17 Buk-M2 air defense missile systems based on tracked armored, 12 9P78 Iskander mobile short-range ballistic missile system, and 203 T-90SA main battle tanks.

The BMP-72 also called Terminator 2 is a fire support tracked armored vehicle fully developed and designed by the company Uralvagonzavod and was unveiled for the first time to the public at the Russian Arms Expo 2013 defense exhibition in Nizhny Tagil (Russia). It is based on the chassis of the Russian-made main battle tank T-72. The vehicle offers new protection and firepower, especially in urban operations.

The main armament of the BMPT-72 turret consists of two 30mm automatic guns 2A42 and one PKTM 7.62mm coaxial machine gun which can be used against light armored vehicles and manpower. The guns can fire a wide range of ammunitions as APERS-T (Anti-Personnel ammunitions), HEF-I (High-explosive Fragmentation Incendiary), AP-T (Armour Piercing)., and KE (Kinetic Energy). Two anti-tank guided missile Ataka-T launcher units are mounted to each side of the turret. The anti-tank missile can engage a target up to a maximum distance of 6,000 m while the guns have a maximum range of 2,500 against light armored vehicles and 4,000 against light tactical vehicles and troops.

The BMPT-72 or Terminator 2 has a crew of three including a driver, commander, and gunner. The hull and turret of the BMPT-72 are made of steel armor and integrates the latest protection systems with explosive reactive armor (ERA) to the front of the turret, a detachable ERA module on the glacis plate, and applique ERA on the sides of the hull and turret.

According to Russian defense industry information, the BMPT-72 can be motorized with two types of engine, the original 850 hp B84MC or the new 1000 hp. B92C2 power plants, both are 12 cylinder V type multi-fuel, liquid-cooled Diesel engines. It can reach a maximum road speed of 60 km with a maximum cursing range of 500 km.

The BMPT-72 or Terminator 2 is fitted with an advanced automatic fire control system which can be used for terrain observation, target location, and detection on the move at day and night. A laser range finder is also available. The commander and the gunner of the BMPT-72 are equipped with control panels and LCD screen.

Nexter Develops A Scalable Gun for Future Tanks



Nexter-KNDS unveiled today an innovative concept for a large caliber gun system for main battle tanks designed to overmatch the heavy threats expected in the 2040-2050 timeframe. The “Autoloaded and SCALable Outperforming guN” (ASCALON) concept is designed to cope with the latest generation of heavy armor while staying ahead of the threats of the next half-century.

Based on know-how gained with battle tank armament, illustrated by the Leclerc’s 120mm smoothbore auto-loading gun system and associated ammunition, the new weapon maximizes energy levels with compact weight and volume, utilizing cutting edge technologies such as telescoped ammunition, and maturity achieved during firing campaigns with a 140mm caliber gun.

Next-generation large-caliber weapons will have to be able to guarantee the armed forces tactical superiority not only through the next decade (2035) but also for the following decades.

By 2040-2050, allied nations will potentially face the return of high-intensity confrontations. In the land domain, armies will have to equip themselves with modern means for tactical superiority, manned or unmanned, integrating numerous systems, reaching the highest levels of protection for the crew, and the capacity to neutralize the adversary. Faced with numerous and hardened threats, winning the battle from the outset will require shooting faster, farther, and with a higher destructive capacity on the first shot, while reducing logistical and ergonomic constraints.

The company expects the technical solutions to be fully mature by 2025, based on an open architecture design to serve as the basis for cooperative development under the Franco-German Main Ground Combat System (MGCS) program. This concept lays the foundations for the future European battle tank gun and ammunition standard, drawing on previous experiences with allies, such as in the 140mm Future Tank Main Armament-Programm (FTMA) gun program.

What makes ASCALON different from today’s tank guns?

A wide choice of terminal effects: The enlarged caliber enriches the range of ammunition for an optimal effect on the target thanks to rods of unparalleled length. It also makes it possible to foresee intelligent ammunition (missiles, projectiles, and other munitions) for firing beyond the line of sight (BLOS/NLOS), which will provide new capacities while reducing the vulnerability of the tank.

Increased firepower: An optimized chamber offers exceptional operational performance with an energy level close to 10 megajoules for kinetic ammunition while remaining below the internal pressure level of current calibers. This untapped potential will enable the weapon to evolve to a performance class of 13 megajoules capable of addressing any threat over the next 50 years.

A controlled blast effect: an innovative muzzle brake, adjusted external pressure fields, and an optimized firing impulse will reduce the blast effect of the shot, reducing the safety distance around the tank, enabling dismounted troops to operate closer to the tank, particularly in urban areas.

Compact ammunition: With a maximum length of 130 cm, ASCALON telescoped ammunition will be more compact than an equivalent caliber ammunition while maintaining maximum rod length. It can be used with automatic loading systems as the current Leclerc tank has, or stored and integrated into new, remotely-operated turrets as foreseen in some configurations of the MGCS.

Lighter Platforms: thanks to a controlled impulse, ASCALON will have With reduced recoil and lower acceleration generated by the gun, ASCALON could be mounted on platforms weighing less than 50 tons while exceeding the performance and lethality of today’s main gun.

For its scalability and growth potential, ASCALON offers a technological and tactical capability that, once matured, could become the standard gun for future heavy battle tanks for the coming decades, similar to the smoothbore 120mm ammunition standardized by NATO in the 1980s. While the 120 was based on German know-how, ASCALON represents a major contribution by the French industry to achieve a new common solution for France and Germany. However, for wider deployment, its maturation will have to be based on the European defense technology industrial base.

Finland, Latvia To Jointly Procure 360 Land Vehicles; Estonia, Sweden Could Join

The agreement includes an order from Latvia for the delivery of 200 APC variant vehicles and another 160 for Finland.


Patria’s 6×6 vehicle, which will jointly procured Finland and Latvia.

AUCKLAND: A new agreement signed between Finland, Latvia and Finnish armored vehicle manufacturer Patria represents the official start of a joint-procurement effort by those two countries, known as the Common Armoured Vehicle System (CAVS) program.

The CAVS 6×6 is based on Patria’s earlier 8×8 AMV and 6×6 XA-series vehicles with a similar chassis and power train. However, there are differences based on 6×6 requirements for both Finland and Latvia.

The project began in 2019 as a multinational cooperation effort that also included Estonia, which has since dropped out. The research and development phase has resulted in a common armored vehicle platform and armored personnel carrier (APC) variant.

Signed Aug. 30, the agreement includes an order from Latvia for the delivery of 200 APC variant vehicles and another 160 for Finland. Latvia’s are expected to cost around €1 million each, with Finland’s likely higher, as they are requesting a more advanced version of the vehicles.

A spokesperson from the Latvian MoD told Breaking Defense that the deliveries would begin this year and go through 2029. “This year’s delivery volume will be 10 vehicles,” the spokesperson said adding, “The total value of the contract is around €200 million; that includes the vehicles’ delivery, initial maintenance and training.”

Finland will order some vehicles this year, but a Letter of Intent from Helsinki states that serial procurement will not begin until 2023. Patria stated that an initial order of 160 is expected.

Meanwhile, further vehicles are under development to meet Finnish Army requirements. Col. Rainer Peltoneimi, inspector of infantry with Army Command Finland, told Breaking Defense that “Product development will continue with the development of a command post vehicle, a lifecycle package and an increasingly protected APC version.”

He added: “In conjunction, it is possible that also other vehicle variants get to be designed and developed depending on the needs of the participating countries.” It is expected that Estonia will re-join CAVS along with new entrant Sweden; the latter is expected to begin talks on joining the program sometime this year.

For Latvia, the new APC will provide a vehicle with additional mobility and ease of use for operators compared to existing assets. Currently, Latvia only fields an inventory of lightly armored 4×4 vehicles.

“Long life cycle and easy maintenance makes [CAVS] very cost-efficient. It adapts into several missions,” the Latvian MoD spokesperson said. A joint venture between Patria and Latvian company Unitruck, called Defence Partnership Latvia (DPL) that was created in 2020, will provide the maintenance and repair of the 6x6s for the Latvian Army in-country.

For Finland, CAVS is part of the Army’s wider effort to upgrade its wheeled mobility capability through to the 2060s. With the introduction of the new 6x6s it will mean that the Finnish Army can reallocated its existing older 1980s-vintage Sisu Pasi XA-180M 6x6s to local forces.

Meanwhile, Finland is modernizing its entire XA-180 armored vehicle fleet. Work started in 2015 and is due to be completed in 2022. The total value of the modernization is approximately €65 million.

“Modernization ensures that the capability, condition and technical life cycle of the XA-180 APC will extend into the 2040s,” Peltoneimi explained. “Electric systems will be upgraded, power transmission components will be improved and suspension and external coating will be renewed. Seats with security belts will also be installed in the vehicles.”
