Not many APCs Indonesian fighter who has a reputation riveting operations in such a long time. One of them was none other than the V-150 Commando artificial Cadilage Cage Company, United States. Panzer with four-wheel (4 × 4) were brought into the country sometime in the 70s, and has now become a mainstay in the arsenal of combat 7/Sersus Cavalry Battalion (Special Panzer) "Military District" Cijantung, Jakarta. V-150 YonKav 7 consists of four variants, namely reconnaissance version with 12.7 mm heavy machine gun, 90mm caliber cannon version, version 7.6 mm twin gun MG Turret APs (Personnel Transport) and the version of the command. 

Reportedly the total number of V-150 owned by the Army reached 200 units. And Indonesia directly into V-150 users in the world after Saudi Arabia. ASEAN neighboring countries such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore also have this type of APCs. In general, the shape of the body between the above variants are relatively common. The sides of the body deliberately constructed angle, it holds energy waves from the explosion when the minefield bulldoze APCs. 

Adopt any type of tire run flat technology, meaning that when a flat tire, APCs can still go up to a distance of 80 kilometers. Not only that, although not equipped with a propeller, V 150 has the ability to wade through the water. Strength comes from the wheels when in the water. Between versions of the V-150 is actually only distinguishable on its dome shape. 
Talking about the experience of combat, V 150 is quite full experience. Gait moment passed its first combat operations in East Timor LOTOS. In an interview with V-150 APCs crew, writers got an interesting story that's Panzers earned the nickname "devil car" among the rebel hordes. Section V 150 is a very fierce figure feared by Fretilin forces. 

In addition to combat missions in the country, V 150 YonKav 7 has also been sent to reinforce the UN peacekeeping mission in Cambodia. V 150 APCs also be relied upon to take action against the violent mob, is evidenced at the time of the riots in May 1998, V 150 which supports the PHH (Anti Riot Forces) equipped with barbed wire around the body. 

BMP2 Marine Corps Tank

What makes BMP-2 is frightening? Not because the design adopted tanks and weaponry. As an APC, BMP-2 has a provision of automatic cannon 2A42 main gun caliber 30 mm. In addition to potent hit targets on the ground, 30 mm cannon is very effective for beating targets in the air, like the helicopters and low-speed aircraft. As an illustration, 30 mm cannon can spew BMP-2 200 - 300/550 rounds per minute. BMP-2 can carry 340 High Explosive ammunition caliber 30 mm.

More sophisticated, equipped stabililizer 30 mm cannon that can shoot targets accurately at a speed of 35 km per hour. Corner of the dome can be quickly spun 360 degrees, and the barrel elevation angle up to 74 degrees. All of this makes for a reliable BMP-2 helicopters struck targets. For the Marine Corps put this tank on the air pertahahan artillery regiment (Arhanud), although BMP-2 is actually more fitting is in units of cavalry, the article BMP-2 had no radar tracking of air targets. 

Frightening impression BMP-2 increased with the provision of anti-tank missiles AT-5 Spandrel placed on the upper side of the dome. As an additional weapon, no coaxial machine gun 7.62 mm caliber ammunition in 2000 the number of bullets. Tank transport personnel can carry 7-8 personnel with the number 3 person crew.

Amphibious tanks rather than the past, BMP-2 has greatness able to swim without elaborate preparation. Indeed unique, there is no provision of water jet or a propeller to swim, the energy to wade through the water comes from the rotation direction of the chain. Glance similar to the pattern in the V-150 armored army, which produced the swimming ability of the direction of motion wheel. 

With high mobility, no doubt very popular BMP-2 is used in many countries. This tank combat experience is worldwide, ranging from snow to desert terrain proved to be devoured this tank. BMP-2 began to be used by the Soviet Union in 1982. Some of the world conflicts involving tanks include the war in Afghanistan, Iraq-Iran war, the Gulf war in 1991, the civil war in Georgia and Russian military operations in Chechnya. 

Since a decade of presence in the country, BMP-2 has been plunged into the field of conflict, for example securing racial conflict in Maluku and GPK GAM crackdown. Quite often against GAM, BMP-2 did help direct hit to the opposite camp. In the ASEAN region, which has the only Vietnamese tanks of this type, large enough that 600 units. Some of Russia's allies a chance to memprokusi this tank, such as India and Ukuraina. With all kesangarannya, is not wrong if BMP-2 Marines can be equated with the APC flagship U.S. Army, M2 Bradley.
