BMP Upgrade The BMP Urban Survival Kit (BUSK), for the protection of battle tanks and AFV/ICV has been developed by Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (VRDE) Ahmednagar,
Basically a same role as slate armor but with light weight But looking at the pics i found that it is impossible to control the weight penalty unless they adopted something innovative like KTO Rosomak-M1M with QinetiQ RPGNet details i am posting after this post.
KTO Rosomak-M1MRosomak-M1 with QinetiQ RPGNet
The Rosomak (Wolverine in Polish) is made by Bumar of Poland and is currently used by the former Eastern Bloc nation for its Land Forces in Afghanistan, Chad and Iraq, besides armies from Croatia, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa and the UAE.
The main feature of the Rosomak is its modular design, which allows the incorporation of different turrets, weapons, sensors and communications systems on the same platform. The 8×8 AMV weighs between 18 and 26 tonnes depending on armour, weapons and ammunition on board. The Rosomak is said to have very good mine protection and can withstand TNT explosions of up to 10 kgs, besides ballistic protection against 30 mm armour piercing APFSDS rounds.
Basically license version of The Patria AMV (Armored Modular Vehicle) an 8x8 multi-role military vehicle produced by the Finnish defence industry company Patria.
But product Rosomak is well upgraded for present environment and is well received at Afghanistan front.
