The Russian BMP-1 is the successor to Germany’s ground-breaking Hanomag halftrack of the Second World War. It carries the Schützen into battle in relative safety, then gives them fire support as they launch their attack.
Mounting an AT-3 Sagger missile, the BMP-1 also protects the infantry from enemy panzers.
The company’s riflemen are armed with the classic AKM assault rifle, or MPi KM (Maschinenpistole Kalashnikow Modernisiert) submachine-gun as the East Germans called them. Each squad is also equipped with an RPK squad automatic weapon, disposable RPG-18 anti-tank rockets, and the powerful RPG-7 anti-tank rocket launcher.
The company is backed up by a platoon of six belt-fed PKM machine-guns, as well as AGS-17 30mm grenade launchers, all mounted in BMPs.
With the threat of war looming the companies have had their old Strela-2 anti-aircraft missiles replaced with newer Strela-3 (Arrow-3) aircraft missiles (known as SA-14 Gremlin in the West). These are deployed in a squad, mounted in another BMP, attached from the battalion’s air defence platoon.
