The BMP-2 is an infantry fighting vehicle featured in Squad.[1] It was introduced in the Alpha 15.0 update.[2]

General information[edit | edit source]

The BMP-2 is a second-generation, amphibious infantry fighting vehicle introduced in the 1980s in the Soviet Union, following on from the BMP-1 of the 1960s.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The BMP-2 features a number of upgrades and design changes when compared to the BMP-1.

Weapon Model Caliber Basic Load
Main Armament Shipunov 2A42 30 mm 3UBR6 Armor Piercing
OT High Explosive Incendiary
9M113 Konkurs Guided Missile
Secondary Armament PKT 7.62 mm
Countermeasure Smoke Launcher 40 mm
  • Standard crew of 3. Driver, Gunner, Commander. 7 passengers can be carried in the back.
  • The BMP-2 is the Russian Ground Forces equivalent to the British FV510 or the American M2A3; it is far superior in terms of armament and armour to the BTR-82A.
  • The primary armament is a Shipunov 30mm cannon mounted in the turret. As the gunner you can switch between armour piercing and high-explosive incendiary rounds to deal with vehicle and infantry threats. It has an extremely high rate of fire, and it can be difficult to keep rounds on target.
  • The vehicle is also armed with a ATGM, mounted on top of the turret. Range and damage are similar to the Spandrel missiles, but it takes much longer to reload.
  • There is a co-axial PKT machine-gun as secondary armament.
  • Two bursts of 40mm smoke grenades.
  • The BMP-2 in-game is currently only a placeholder. It is the developers intention to eventually replace it with the BMP-2M, giving the Russian Ground Forces their most modern variant.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to PKM introduction to the game, the BMP-2 is only a placeholder for the Russian Ground Forces in-game, as the developers intend to eventually replace it with the BMP-2M (upgraded modern variant of the BMP-2).
