First time to see this BMT-72, simply looks great, and that "troop compartment" for 5 persons is great too.

I never heard that this BMT-72 is in service.

Sorry mate, on whole Internet I only find a Chinese site with decent info about this BMT-72, time to start Chinese learning

Anyway here the Chinese Link (Global Military):
http://www.pladaily.com.cn/item/hqjs/huigu/2003-11a.htm

But Chinese classify the BMT-72 not as a real Tank but just a Infantry Combat Vehicle.

OK, here are some discussion about this MBT-72 on StrategyPage.com:

"The Russian is also working on a BMT-72 HIFV which looks like a MBT but in fact a Heavy Infantry Fighting Vehicle(HIFV). May be in future ,this will be the standard armour arsenal in most army and MBT will continue to play a part in the 21th century armour warfare in other form."

Nice to read:

Hello FlyingFrog

I can see now why I should have read Chines instead of Swedish
Well but this is what I have found out from another place on the net about this BMT-72 Heavy Infantry Fighting Vehicle.

Like most Morozov projects there is maby 1-2 prototypes and now they
are seeking contracts for this fighting vehicle and that is why it is so hard to get anything more about these realy great machinery. But for the record. Sir... Thanks for your help - And If there is anyone else out there with informations about this BMT-72 Heavy Infantry Fighting Vehicle - Please help us out because this is interesting. Almost as interesting as turns up on the 24th december or 25th for some people.

Cheers:

Hello Doctor

I have no clue what Doc.S means in Swedish

I just have one tiny thought about this:
Why they call it HIFV (Fighting Vehicle, but not HICV, Heavey Infantry COMBAT Vehicle), Combat seems to me better than Fighting

Well Doc is because I was drafted as an medical orderly ambulance driver and emergency care, when I was going in to the army I had completed upper secondary education, intensive care, health care sector, nursing, etc, etc 3 years + 1 social sciences. So my friends got me a pet name Doc.S. S stands for Social Science Nerd

Yeah Doc, now I don't need to apologize I called you doctor

Well, I check some sites, indeed they all cal them HIFV, "combat" is rarely used.

There is so little info about BMT HIFV on net, maybe BMT is simply a new concept?

But I don't think HIFV is the way of future, we should not try to combine different function units into one single vehcile. I would simply combine a good MBT with a Armored Infantry Vehcile.

Just enjoying some IFV's

Not very sure.

I think:
BMT is an upgrate of MBT.
BMT is mainly still a battle tank.
HIFV is mainly an armored vehicle not a battle tank,
