For the first time, the racists used their BMPT “Terminator” in the battle near Severodonetsk. How this event was presented by Russian propaganda, and whether it managed to “cover up” the fiasco of its “miracle weapon”
This “miracle weapon” could not withstand the shelling of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. But it seems that this circumstance did not destroy the Kremlin propaganda and other representatives of the enemy. Although in reality it was difficult for them to hide their frustration.
Alexei Khlopotov, a racist military expert, was one of the first orcs to write about the entry of the Terminator BMPT into battle, in his blog on May 27. As we will see later in the comments, Khlopotova was rather upset by the fact that the BMP-2 with the “Berezhok” module turned out to be a bigger “wunderwaffe” than the “Terminator”.
For starters – Khlopotov could not get a video of the first battle of the BMPT “Terminator”. Therefore, he published only three screenshots and photos of cars after the battle, presented as an “exclusive” channel “Military Informant”. In comments to him, the “Military Informant” writes the following: “Exclusive from the front near Severodonetsk. BMPT” Terminator-2 “, which have already participated in the fighting. Reviews from soldiers who worked near the cars are the best. the enemy has all the ammunition. “
In response, Khlopotov “cut off” that “Osvedomitel” is poorly aware of the structural differences between “Terminator” and “Terminator-2”. And that the “Terminator” was adopted by the Russian army, and the “Terminator-2” car remained in one “exhibition” copy.
The second moment is related to the satisfaction of the complete shooting of ammunition. Is that good? This shows that the ammunition in the BMPT “Terminator” is insufficient as needed for combat. The Terminator has only 850 shots on two barrels. At the same time, as a “classic” BMP-2 has an ammunition of 500 shots per barrel.
Or you can make such a comparison – two BMP-2M with the module “Berezhok” will have a significantly larger BC than one BMPT “Terminator”. For example, the ammunition of 30 mm cannon shots will be 1000 shots (BMP-2M) against 850 shots (“Terminator”), 8 guided missiles against 4 guided missiles, and the same number of automatic grenade launchers with the same BC.
Thus BMP-2M with the module “Berezhok” wins on vertical corners of the main complex of armament in 1,5 times – 74 degrees against 45 degrees.
Twenty years ago, when BMPT was just being developed, it had the advantage of visibility. But with the advent of the same “Shore”, she lost it. Since two panoramas on the BMP with thermal imaging channels are better than one on the BMPT without a thermal imager (yes, there is no thermal imager on the Terminator in the panorama).
Theoretically, BMPT is better protected. However, with the use of modern means of destruction, BMPs and tanks are hit equally well that we could observe during the fighting against the racists. And this despite the fact that one BMPT is like two “classic” tanks. Which clearly shows the “effectiveness” of this combat vehicle.
By the way, we don’t see any fighters in the photo – except for the BMPT, there are only T-72B3 tanks. The above-mentioned comment of the racist “Informant” about “satisfied fighters” is amateurish propaganda.
The photo shows only two of the four BMPTs shown earlier. Judging by the shot ATGM tubes, they came out of the fight. And it seems that the orcs “halved” their four “Terminators” into two tactical groups.
The first entry into the battle of the Russian BMPT “Terminator”, author – editor-in-chief of “Censor.Net” Yuri Butusov, date of publication – May 27, 2022
Interestingly, the “order” to comment on the battle with the participation of BMPT “Terminator” was performed by the authors of the “non-core” propaganda portal Avia.pro. Those who wrote that combat vehicles under the T-15 “Terminator” index were sent into battle, that the fact of their use is confirmed by photos of UAF fighters, and that the T-15 “Terminator” vehicles “proved to be quite good.”
But perhaps the most interesting thing is that the authors of Avia.pro “dreamed” of 10 T-15 “Terminator” vehicles in the Russian army.
It is obvious that the authors of Avia.pro do not understand armored vehicles at all. Otherwise, these racists would have known that their T-15 was a heavy BMP based on the Armata, which has not yet entered the series. And from what these racists took that the combat debut of BMPT “Terminator” was successful – it is not clear at all. In fact, when the Ukrainian artillery began to work in that episode, BMPT quickly left a battlefield.
And the examples described above show that racist propaganda either has no data on the results of the Terminator BMPT battles (but pretends to be effective), or they have these data, but they are so disappointing that it is better not to write. However, the lack of information for us is also information.
