BMPT Terminator Armoured Fighting Vehicle
- 10x BMPT Terminator Armoured Fighting Vehicles
The BMPT "Terminator"
is a post-Cold war armored fighting vehicle
(AFV), designed and manufactured by the Russian company Uralvagonzavod
. This vehicle was designed for supporting tanks and other AFVs in urban areas
. The BMPT is unofficially named the "Terminator" by the manufacturers. It is heavily armed and armored to survive in urban combat. This AFV is armed with four 9M120 Ataka
missile launchers, two 30 mm 2A42
autocannons, two AG-17D
grenade launchers, and one coaxial 7.62 mm PKTM
The BMPT is built on the chassis of the T-72
main battle tank which is used in large numbers by the Russian Army and has been manufactured under license by many other countries. The BMPT was designed based on combat experience gained during the Soviet war in Afghanistan
and the First Chechen War
. Multiple prototypes of a tank support combat vehicle were created prior to the design of the current BMPT. The Object 199 "Ramka" was the prototype later to be known as the modern BMPT with the official producer being Uralvagonzavod
. A small number were delivered to the Russian Ground Forces
for evaluation beginning in 2005. As of late 2013, the only operator of the BMPT was Kazakhstan
. Russia appears to have foregone procurement of the BMPT in favor of the T-15
IFV based on the Armata Universal Combat Platform
to fill the role.
Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process. Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain. It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners. During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light. Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.
Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended. Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise the risk of damage to parts.
