Tuesday, 22 June 2010 15:18

     Cadets at the Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School tested the new Bakhcha-U fire support vehicle during an exercise held at the range of the 76th Airborne Assault Division near Pskov. Before this, they studied to operate the fourth-generation airborne combat vehicle for two years.
     The vehicle has cutting-edge command, navigation and nigh-vision equipment. Compared to the previous models, it also has more powerful weapons.
     The cadets taking part in the trials say the BMD-4 is easy to operate and takes only three minutes to fire the first shot, which is nearly twice as fast as the T-90 tank. The automatic firing control system makes the necessary calculations for the gunner and the operator, who only need to select a target, point the gun at it and push the button.
     The BMD-4 was put in service in the Airborne Forces in 2005. Experts say the new vehicle has no analogues in the world.
