part of front can be a bit stronger than BMP-3, but due to impossibility installation of ERA on front...kinda... BMP3+ERA(can swim with ERA)+APS and no need in any kurgovnec

 

Well, the crew compartment size and its access in BMP-3 is not very good but then there is also the Dragun.

Yeah. Pretty much all what Kurganets-25 chassis offer could be more or less done on moded BMP-3 chassis, it seems, with exception of space inside.

Are BMP-1’s able to fit the berezhok turret or is the turret ring to small? 

BMP-1 can't fit Berezhok. Although you could do other things, like leaving BMP-1s to rust as at this point hull are ~50 years old and ballistic protection is very low.

Do not let them rust. Send them to the Jihad Design Bureau to find a new lease on life.

Half as turrets on various 4x4s and half as open topped assault APCs or as SVBIEDs.

 

The top half and the bottom half, respectively.

When they said that they strengthenned the T-90M's UFP , did they do it with new composites or addon armor?

 

The UFP on T tanks is not horizontally thick , but highly sloped so i suspect they can use more steel content without worrying about weight

I'm currently reading the chronicle of Czechoslovak tank brigade in USSR (WW2) and I have stumbled upon two interesting things (among many others). 

 

During fighting on Ondava river in December 1944 (behind Dukla pass) the unit's SU-85 allegedly successfully used AA timed shells (for 52-K) against German observation post on the cliff on the other side of the river. Are there other reports about using AA munion in SU-85 or T-34/85? 

 

And for the lulz... The December 1944 fighting on the Ondava river was on a static line because the units were exhausted after bitter fighting over the Dukla pass. It was very cold (around -20°C) and the tanks usually stayed in defence posts for a long time with their crews freezing inside. One crew of T-34/76 installed a stove in the tank. Don't say anymore that T-34 was cramped inside :D

...and forcing modern soldiers in full gear inside should count as a crime against humanity.
