Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits.
  • TB ATGM: guided high explosives.
  • Uninhabited modules: the uninhabited turret (battle module) received reduced damage.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With a strong hull and an unmanned turret which takes reduced damage from incoming fire, the Terminator 2 is tailored for the role of a flanking brawler capable of getting around heavily armored vehicles and unloading salvos of ATGMs and autocannon fire into their sides. The Terminator 2 offers excellent protection to accompany its withering firepower.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent armor values, slope and ERA. One of the meanest armors in AW. Back has cages against missiles.
  • Excellent light vehicle counter
  • Good ATGM launcher salvo, but vastly inferior to missile spammers like Kornet, T-15, MT-LB, etc.
  • Turret takes reduced damage
  • Superior to the T-15 in compact silhouette and track shielding

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Sluggish acceleration and low top speed
  • 30mm autocannons lack penetration to deal with heavily armored targets
  • Long reload in between ATGM salvos
  • High DPM vehicles can count on shooting the turret since it still takes some damage
  • LFP is weak
  • Weak to AP shells
  • Bad camo rating

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

The Improved Gun Stabilizer will tremendously help maintaining accurate autocannon fire when the Terminator 2 is used as a brawler. Upgrading to the V-92S2 Diesel Engine will allow the Terminator 2 to keep up with dedicated flankers, so it should be researched early.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Telescopic Lenses

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Freja Højbjerg, for increases to accuracy, view range, and module damage
  • Driver: Off-Road Driving, Smooth Ride
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter

History[edit | edit source]

The BMPT-72, also known as the "Terminator 2", is a Russian armored fighting vehicle that was first revealed in 2013. It is very similar to its predecessor, the BMPT "Terminator", including being built on the base T-72 hull. Where it distinguishes itself from the BMPT, however, is that the BMPT-72 is a retrofit only vehicle, upgraded from T-72s and other similar vehicles with no new builds.
