BMP-2 question

Recommended Posts

Up until I started using it I had no idea the BMP-2 had to turn off its turret drive to use its ATGM. My question is what is the mechanical reason behind this?

Yes, IRL you need to do this, unless  you ready to take risks like hitting your own gun barrel with missile immediately after launch, severing control wires  and so on.  So this why ПТР(ATGM) switch , if  turned on,  enables ATGM sight reticle power and switches  stabilizer  to stand-by mode.

Also, no risk of accidental/unintended powered turret traverse which probably would also break the guidance wire, even for relatively small (sudden) movements.

I'm here just to say that I :x that the BMP-2 is included in the sim. Hope full BMP-1 will have his place someday ^_^

+1 for that too. Just imagine intercepting and incoming BMP2 AT-5 with your Marder Milan. Such a show for the AAR and save it for posterity :)
