The BMD-4 is a Tier 6 progression Armored Fighting Vehicle under Marat Shishkin's dealership.

History[]

Class: Airborne Infantry Fighting Vehicle
Developed: 1998-2004
Service: 2004+
Vehicles Built: estimates vary from 14 to 60
Operators: Russia

This is the last of the airborne IFVs, developed for the Russian Airborne forces. Facing heavy combat losses in Chechnya as well as other conflicts, the Russians naturally realized that the BMD-1 and BMD-2 IFVs were far too fragile for what they were used. At the same time, they were too small to be upgraded with more armor and heavier weapons, resulting in a development of a larger chassis, which would become the BMD-3 IFV. THe BMD-3 was, however, expensive and only available in very limited numbers in the 1990s. It was also only armed with the same firepower as the BMD-2, which is why, as the next step, its firepower was increased by replacing the 30mm weapons module with a 100mm gun and 30mm autocannon combination installed in a new combat module called "Bakhcha-U". This version received the BMD-4 designation and while the firepower improved compared to its predecessor, the BMD-4 suffered from a large number of teething issues and the Airborne was never really happy with it, leading to, once again, very small production numbers.

  • Amphibious: This vehicle is more resistant to taking on water, allowing it to traverse wider rivers or lakes.
