The article says it does not want "non-upgraded" BMP-3 and T-90.
agree and that was not my point.

Thales FLIR and communications equipment is a sizable upgrade.
it may be sizable but will that suffice for the russian army to accept them??

any idea on what other upgrades they are planning besides the thales FLIR.

It may or may not. At the roundtable Popovkin expressed unhappiness with lack of automatic transmissions and modern engines. Russia could turn to either France or Germany for such technology.

Obviously, Russian industry has not been able to meet the demands of the government for modern technology. What is interesting is the large turn to France over all other countries. This sale of communications gear for armour, license production of thermal imagers, Mistral BPC, Dassault Falcon presidential jets, license production of Arius helicopter engines, the takeover of Russian automobile industry by Renault. Russia is bleeding at ever greater competencies.

Indeed..
After the fall of soviets their industry gone through tech era gap which resulted in unsatisfactory results in certain weapon technology..
With the help of France it will complete the gaps left over in past..

You are wrong////

My friends, what are you write? Personally i think that BMP-3 is the better machine. First it has a bigger firepower. Yes we know that Bradley has TOW but the new versions of bmp-3 also has anti tank missiles.Bmp-3 is much more maneuvarable and faster than IFV. And i think that even american military admit that Bradley has many problems. I know one example showing how reliable is BMP-3.Russian army used a few machines for tests in kazakhs's desert.The filtrate of one of BMP-3s was pierced by a mechanic and the desert sand began filling the engine. But the engine of BMP-3 worked for 10 hours full with sand and without any problems. and after the collapse of Soviet union we become stronger.:mad:
