The BMD-4 is a tier 6 Armored Fighting Vehicle‏‎ originating from Russia, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the BMD-2 and leads to the BMD-2M.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Subtle movement: moving on a low speed doesn't reduce your camouflage factor.
  • Adjustable suspension: allows you to adjust ground clearance manually.
  • Waterproof: this vehicle can remain longer under water.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Continuing the BMD tradition of high firepower on a light frame, the BMD-4 improves on these qualities, with some added benefits. Faster than most other BMD models thanks to an improved engine, and having a versatile 30mm/100mm combination, the BMD-4 remains a mobile flanker, capable of dealing significant damage to the sides and rears of unsuspecting vehicles.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High mobility
  • Low profile
  • Powerful ATGM

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • 100mm cannon can only fire HE shells
  • 30mm autocannon is ineffective against all but the rears of most vehicles.
  • Minimal armor

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading to the UTD-29 Diesel Engine will heavily improve the acceleration of the BMD-4, allowing for easier flanking maneuvers. The Improved Fire Control System, Improved Thermal Sights, and Improved Autoloader will heavily increase effective firepower, so should be researched early.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Electro-Optical Absorbing Paint
  • Augmented Optics

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Sabrina Washington, for improvements to camo rating, view range, and accuracy
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter

History[edit | edit source]

Developed by Russia, this infantry fighting vehicle was devised as a lightweight update to the BMD-3 for the Airborne Division. Entering service in 2004, the BMD-4’s Bakhcha-U turret offers a dramatic increase in firepower over its predecessor. It is considered one of the mostly heavily armed vehicles in its class. Presently, Russia is the only operator of the BMD-4, but other countries have expressed interest in the vehicle.
