WHO ARE WE ?



The Boston Conversion Armaments (BCA) company was founded in February 2020 on the initiative of the Northeast Interstate Congglomerate, an entity also recently created by a group of wealthy businessmen from the Northeast of Lusatinia. The names of these main investors are a well garded secret, but the fundraising that led to the creation of BCA brought together almost $250,000,000 million. Such an important ability to raise funds despite the relative anonymity of its founders speaks volumes about the reputation of these entrepreneurs for making profitable a commercial activity, in particular on a market as competitive as that of armaments. The choice of Boston as the company's headquarters is largely explained by its port status which allows immediate access to the world market. The Lusatinian market does not appear to be one of the priorities of this company.
The market that BCA intends to invest in is that of the reconversion of obsolete military equipment. The production/profit process is constructed as follows: the company intends to buy old military equipment in order to convert them into reconditionned and refurbished weapons platforms capable of equipping first line units at lower cost. But if it is obvious that developed countries may be interested in quality equipment at a relative low cost, the main target of the company are second-tier troops, paramilitary or police forces. More precisely, the clientele it targets are from developing or poor countries who are going through instability, border conflicts or anti-terrorist operations type of military conflicts. More precisely, BCA products are aimed at countries that do not benefit from the defense budget necessary to equip their armed forces with the latest equipment. In particular, BAC's products are intended for markets linked to low intensity conflicts, for example those which involve weakly equipped paramilitary or police units. The product catalog also intends to be useful in the context of asymmetrical conflicts, on the model of that opposing the Arab countries to Israel or the type of conflicts which are currently multiplying all over Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, India).
In addition to the market for the conversion of obsolete military equipment, BCA also intends to invest in market of spare parts sells for these same equipment. The objective is above all to offer an after-sales service to its customers but also to conquer market share with nations which are not engaged in armed conflicts but have significant quantities of military equipment which they must keep in working condition for lack of budget or plan to replace them.

The operation of our company are particular in the sense that our company is engaged in the purchase, conversion and resale of obsolete military equipment. It is not an exchange program nor a charity. In other words, It is not because a seller allows us to acquire a quantity of material that this material once converted is immediately returned to him. There is no contractual obligation which would force us to resell the vehicles acquired by BCA to their original sellers. The concept of a company like BCA goes further since the resale of modernized equipment is not guaranteed to the original seller. Once converted, this equipment becomes the property of BCA, which can choose to sell it to one or more customers of its choice. Remember here that the goal of this business is to make a profit, not to distribute to all comers some modernized military equipment.
Equipment sold to BCA cannot be bought back at the same price once it has been stored. This may seem logical to many but is worth remembering. The set of modifications made to this equipment often explains the price difference between the purchase price and the resale price. However, the purchase of modernized equipment from a stock of obsolete equipment that was sold earlier represents a clear advantage both in terms of cost and logistics. Most of the conversion effort is made by BCA and the product often represents a significant improvement at a reduced cost.

For example, a T-72 costs between $ 1,000,000 (earlier variants) and $ 2,000,000 (T-72B1). At BCA, we offer to buy complete or incomplete T-72 for $ 400,000. Based on our production cost, a T-72 converted to an M7117 Armored Personal Carrier "Black Bear" cost between $ 1,700,000 and $ 2,400,000. Selling a T-72 and then buying its converted version amounts to obtaining a reduction of almost 25% on our market price and an APC modernized according to the latest technological advances for a cost between $ 1,300,000 and $ 2,000,000.
Not all BCA products and conversion programs systematically follow this type of ratio. The Protector program is notably more expensive because of its ambitions to offer a Multi-Purpose Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle from a platform as obsolete as the Cadillac Gage Commando vehicle series.

US/Lusatinian type of equipment

  • M60A4: Developed in the 1950's as an outgrowth of the M48 series of AFVs, the M60 series (the M60, M60A1, M60A2, and M60A3) was the mainstay of US armored forces from its adoption in 1 962 until it began to be replaced by the M1 Abrams family in the 1980's. In 1 987 the M60A4 was adopted as type standard for all remaining M60 models in inventory, and work began on bringing the earlier models up to A4 standards. Side skirts for the tracks and "Blazer" reactive armor for the turret are the primary features distinguishing the M60A4 from earlier versions. There is a single driver's hatch on the forward deck. The turret mounts a commander's cupola containing an M2HB MG and a loader's hatch, both on the turret deck (the cupola is fitted with a hatch as well). Price: $400,000.
  • Cadillac Gage Stingray: The Stingray was a private venture tank developed by Cadillac Gage in the US and Royal Ordnance of England, designed for the export weapons market. Although never adopted by the US Army, the Stingray was a less expensive AFV alternative in many armies in the years prior to the war. In 1997, conditions in the US were such that Stingray inventories and production were requisitioned and the vehicles assigned as replacement equipment to several units in the US and abroad. The Stingray's layout is conventional: there is a driver's hatch on the forward hull deck, and a commander's hatch on the turret deck with a weapons mount. The 105mm turret on the Stingray can also be fitted into the various other CG Commando chassis (M706, M750), and a small number of such "Stingray Juniors" were produced. Price: $800,000.

A weapons mount is located by the commander's hatch. The M109 can be made amphibious by use of a special kit not normally carried. The kit consists of nine large air bags. Price: $300,000.
  • M110A2 SP: A self-propelled artillery system on a heavy chassis developed for the army by the Pacific Car and Foundry Company. The gun system is mounted externally on the chassis, and (unlike the M109) there is no protection for the gun crew (except for the driver, who rides inside) or for the ammunition. To remedy this (at least for the crew), a kit consisting of a tubular metal framework and kevlar shields was issued, but most crews found them too cumbersome to erect. They were usually discarded or left with the supply units. Price: $375,000.
  • M993 MLRS: The M993 was the first multiple rocket launcher System deployed in significant numbers by the US army since WWII. The vehicle uses a chassis developed by FMC and a large, boxlike rack of twelve launching tubes (which can be rotated 360°), behind a forward-mounted crew compartment. The tubes can be discharged in pairs, or ripple-fired. Access to the forward located crew compartment is through two doors (one on each side) and a hatch located on the right top of the compartment. The weapon can be reloaded by one person, using an integral derrick to hoist the ammo pods (6 rockets each) onto the vehicle. Price: $250,000.
  • M948 LARS: Built on the M548 cargo carrier chassis, and using 160mm rockets instead of 227mm ones, the M948 Light Artillery Rocket System is smaller than the M993 MLRS, but identical in layout. Price: $225,000.
  • M917 ADATS (Air Defense Antitank System): A quadruple ADATS missile launching system fitted to the LAV-75 chassis. This vehicle is an attempt to combine antiarmor and antiaircraft capabilities in a single vehicle. Price: $225,000.
  • M920 M2 Hellfire AT Vehicle: The M2 Bradley chassis with the turret removed and a quadruple Hellfire antiarmor missile launcher fitted into its place. Price: $200,000.
  • M757 Blazer: The Blazer is the basic M2 Bradley chassis fitted out for an antiaircraft role with a triple barreled 30mm chaingun system and a quadruple stinger launcher. Price: $200,000.
  • MPGS-90: A LAV-25 chassis mounting a reduced pressure 90mm gun similar to the British 90mm Cockerill. Price: $250,000.
  • M48 Chaparral: The M48 Chaparral air defense artillery vehicle consists of a modified M548 chassis (designated M730) and an M54 missile launch system. Price: $150,000.

Communication from the Boston Conversion Armaments Headquarter


Subject: Application
Encryption: Highest


To whom this may concern,

We thank you for choosing Boston Conversion Armaments to do business with us today. Our company believes that many defenses actors, countries or private military contractors, too often ignore the value of obsolete military equipment. People, like countries, have the right to engage themselves in the race to acquire more modern, more efficient assets. But by doing so, they often blind themselves about the realities of war, about the material cost of any military conflict.
Our company pledges to provide its clients and customers with assets of extremely good quality without trying to oversell this type of goods. Our interest is not to acquire any type of equipment to sale it to a higher cost but to change the general approach of the defence institution regarding their own assets. More than some principles, it is our essence, our identity.

We are more than happy to acquire access to the Obererbach Militärdepot you proposed. Your application, as well as the conditions that you offer us, have been accepted.

We would like to remind you that equipment sold to BCA cannot be bought back at the same price. If you want to sale us back equipment you bought, we invite you to get in touch with our head office in order to discuss buyout prices.

We thank you again thank you again for choosing our company to do business. Such a choice, in a very competitive world of the defence industry is for us a motion of confidence in BCA. We look forward to continued doing so in the near future!

Sincerely,

Marcus Hornensson,
Vice-Chairman of the Board of Boston Conversion Armaments

M7117 "Black Bear" Armoured Personnel Carrier

Image

History

The idea to convert T-54/55 into APC come from Israel defense force after the War in Lebanon in the 1950s. The standard APCs then in service, like the M113, could hardly withstand anti-tank weapons hit without extra protection, especially from the whole range of third generation launchers used by the Hezbollah. The main battle tank from the IDF was encountering difficulties to the point where it was used as improvised heavy APC, due to its rear access and roomy interior. A solution which was far from optimal the main reason being that converting Merkava to APC actually reduced production and the available fleet of MBT.
The solution provided by the IDF was to use the mass of captured vehicles, in particular the T-54/55 in order to transform them into APC, thus freeing the production chains of Merkava from the pressure of producing two types of models.
The first attempts at conversion, notably the Tiran-4S, were unsuccessful. Their weak protection, manufacturing faults and difficulties in nested too different systems within the same platform forced the iDF to use them as training or reserve vehicles.
The need for a large fleet of vehicles capable of supporting infantry in urban combat accelerated the design and production processes leading to the creation of a heavy CPA, the first of its kind in the world.

Design of the conversion

"The decision was taken in 1986, and work started with the design bureau of the Israeli Defence Forces Corps of Ordnance, leading to a prototype in 1988, which was tested and accepted into service. 250 conversions followed over the years, to serve in Lebanon. The original upper part of the chassis was entirely removed, turret included, and the lower part was also modified (engine cradle, suspension bearings, electrical wiring, etc.). A new more modern and compact NIMDA 650-hp engine (1st series) was relocated in the rear-left part.
The original drivetrain and torsion bars were apparently left unchanged. A troop compartment was created in the central part, with a right-rear side access door. The compartment was roomy enough for seven fully equipped infantrymen, while the rest of the crew was composed of the driver, MG-gunner and commander (which in option could have a bulletproof glass turret over his hatch) at the front. The driver’s hatch comprised as usual three periscopes covering the frontal arc.
Since protection was paramount, it took the shape of a new add-on armour glacis at the front, and thick side armour made of ERA modules inserted into bulkheads, parts of composite armour up to 200 mm thick. Roof protection was increased with a full set of ERA bricks. Armament now comprised two 7.62 mm machine guns fired from inside, and a single 7.62 mm Rafael Overhead Weapon Station (OWS) remote station. The latter could be replaced more recently by an improved 12.7 mm Samson Remote Controlled Weapon Station.
A second version of the Achzarit, the Achzarit Mk.2 was produced later on. The main difference included a new 850 hp diesel engine by NIMDA, and possibly armour upgrades. Thanks to the new power pack, speed was now up to 65 kph, due to a 19 hp/tonne power to weight ratio. At the same time, specialized Urban combat appeared like the Aquarium and Doghouse.

M1217 Multi-Purpose Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle "Protector"

Image
M1117 Guardian from the United State of America Armed Forces, non-converted model

The M1217 Multi-Purpose Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle "Protector" is inspired from the M1117 Guardian, also denoted Armored Security Vehicle (ASV), an internal security vehicle based on the V-100 and V-150 Commando series of armored cars. The M1217 MPUGCV design is a choice to ignore remote-control vehicles like the miitary robot dogs developed by several companies of the North American Military-Industrial Complex as well as in Lusatinia, BCA thing straightforward to develop and designed relatively large platforms that do not require non-existing engineer solutions.

History

It was developed in the late 1990s for service with the United States Military Police Corps. First prototypes appeared in February 1997 and serial production of the M1117 commenced between 1999 and early 2000.
At the time, the M1117 was one of the first American military vehicles to be built on a specialized mine-resistant hull. After 2001, it was adopted in increasing numbers as a direct response to the threat posed by improvised explosive devices to forces in low intensity conflict.
At the origin, tts armament consists of an Mk 19 grenade launcher and M2HB Browning machine gun, mounted in a turret similar to that used on the U.S. Marine Corps' Amphibious Assault Vehicle; and a M240H Medium Machine Gun mounted outside the gunner's hatch. The vehicle was utilized by mostly military police and convoy security units. It is a more heavily protected and heavily armed alternative to the armored Humvee which was not originally designed to be a protected fighting vehicle.
The M1117 many conceptual and manufacturing faults. In 2007, it failed ballistics testing at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, leading to many country to cancel their order, including the Lusatinian Armed Forces who had planned to received more than 1,700 vehicles.

Design of the conversion

The Protector project concerns four variants of the Cadillac Gage Commando vehicle:

  • Commando Scout, a 4x4 vehicle. It has a driver's hatch on the front deck, a commander's hatch on the turret deck, and an exit hatch on the rear of the vehicle. The vehicle's extremely low weight makes it easily air-transportable, and the Commando Scout is very popular with mere groups requiring a light AFV. The vehicle can be armed with a machinegun or a 20mm autocannon. In some models, a single remotely fired TOW II ATGM launcher is also mounted on the turret, or a 40mm autogrenade launcher such as the Mk19 may be fitted in place of the main armament.
  • Commando V-150, 4x4 wheeled APCs (adopted for service in the US Army) comes in several versions, the most common being an APC version, either with a machinegun turret as shown or with a pintle-mounted MAG MG. The 150 series is also available in mortar carrier (turret is removed and replaced with deck hatches), 20mm autocannon, and 90mm gun versions (using the low pressure gun turret from the V-300). The vehicle is fully amphibious at one-fourth its cross-country speed. The vehicle has two side doors, and an exit hatch on the rear deck.
  • Commando V-300 TUA, a 6x6 wheeled armored vehicle manufactured by Cadillac Gage, but was not adopted by the US Army. It has an antitank TUA (TOW under armor) version is one of two TOW versions; the other has a single TOW launcher on a nonturreted pintle mount. The V-300 is fully amphibious at one-quarter its cross-country speed. The vehicle has two side doors and a rear exit ramp, plus a commander's hatch in the middle of the top deck fitted.
  • Commando V-300 CS, a 6x6 wheeled armored vehicle manufactured by Cadillac Gage, but it was not adopted by the US Army. The CS (combat support) version with a 90mm gun is shown. The V-300 is fully amphibious at one-quarter its cross-country speed. The vehicle has two side doors and a rear exit ramp, plus a commander's hatch atop the turret.
  • Commando V-300 APC, an APC version fitted with a pintle-mounted MAG or M2HB MG, a light power turret incorporating twin machineguns (either MAG or an M2HB/MAG combo) or a 25mm autocannon (same as on the M2 Bradley series). Other armaments include a 40mm GL turret (same as that on the AAVP7A), an air defense version with a turret-mounted 20mm autocannon, and an open topped 82mm mortar version. The V-300 APC is fully amphibious at one-quarter of its cross-country speed.
The M1217 Multi-Purpose Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle "Protector" series is designed to provide remote reconnaissance, fire and breaching support to a variety of users, from counter-terrorist force to regular forces, mostly in urban environments.
The M1217 MPUGCV can be used autonomously on a predefined road all manually operated by one man from a truck control station or by a small backpack control station.
The various vehicle variants serving as the basis for the M1217 MPUGCV have undergone significant modifications, in particular with the removal of all equipment linked to personnel previously required. The free space allows not only to install the computer equipment necessary for the operation of these platforms, batteries for this material as well as the vehicle, the extension of the ammunition storage, the installation of devices and storage settings for support mission as well as modules allowing a rapid modification of the range of missions that can be accomplished by each platform.
The originally designed version is supposed to be armed with 30mm automatic cannon, 4 ready-to-launch anti-tank guided missiles, 6 ready-to-launch reactive flamethrowers and a heavy machine gun mounted on the left side of the vehicle. Two anti-tank launcher and 3 flamethrowers launcher are located on each side of the turret. The anti-tank guided missiles can be replace by the same amount of surface-to-air missiles launcher.
The M1217 MPUGCV can resist firing of small arms ammunition, shell splinters, some anti-tank grenade-launcher or anti-tank missile systems. The plates of the hull, made of steel, offer protection for the vehicle suspension.
The robotic system is equipped with various remote-controlled sensor modules such laser warning system and electro optic thermal imaging cameras. It has an on board fire control system comprised of automatic target detection, identification and tracking devices as an elaborate ballistic computer. The systems are able to detect and track targets at a distance of up to 6-7 kilometers during the day and 3-4 kilometers during the night.
The M1217 MPUGCV has two operation modes: autonomous and manual. In autonomous mode, in can automatically identify, detect, track and combat ennemy targets based on the pre-programmed path set by the operator. In manual mode, the M1217 MPUGCV is manually control by a single operator from a mobile command and control station mounted on a truck or in a backpack from a safe distance which can go until 500 to 1 kilometer.
The vehicle is powered by a diesel electric power source which provide a speed of 30-31 kilometers/hour on a highway and a maximum 20 kilometers/hour speed in cross-country environment. In off-road conditions, it moves slowly at 10 kilometers/hour. The chassis offers increased cross-country mobility.

M1217 Multi-Purpose Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle "Protector" Variants

Every variant incorporate enhanced armor upgrades, such as the explosive reactive armor and titanuim armor on their roof and expose sides. All of this variant are capable to resist mine and IED to a certain degree.

  • M1217-1 Scout: based on the Commando Scout variant from Cadillac Gage, its extremely low weight makes it easily air-transportable. The vehicle can be armed with a machinegun, a 20mm or 30mm autocannon. Two sets of remotely fired TOW II ATGM launcher are mounted on each side of the turret. A 40mm auto-grenade launcher such as the Mk19 may be fitted in place of the main armament.
  • M1217-2 Commando: based on the 4x4 wheeled APC Commando V-150 variant of the Commando V-150 from Cadillac Gage. The vehicle can be armed with a machinegun, a 20 or 30mm autocannon as well as a 90mm gun. Two sets of remotely fired TOW II ATGM launcher are mounted on each side of the turret. A 40mm auto-grenade launcher such as the Mk19 may be fitted in place of the main armament. The vehicle is fully amphibious at one-fourth its cross-country speed.
  • M1217-3 Heavy Commando: based on the 6x6 wheeled armored vehicle variant of the Commando V-300 TUA from Cadillac Gage. The vehicle can be armed with a machinegun, a 20 or 30mm autocannon as well as a 90mm gun. Two sets of remotely fired TOW II ATGM launcher are mounted on each side of the turret. A 40mm auto-grenade launcher such as the Mk19 may be fitted in place of the main armament. The vehicle is fully amphibious at one-fourth its cross-country speed.
  • M1217-4 Heavy Ordnnance: based on a 6x6 wheeled armored vehicle variant of the Commando V-300 CS from Cadillac Gage. The vehicle can be armed with a 90mm gun with an autoloader.

Communication from the Boston Conversion Armaments Headquarter


Subject: Application
Encryption: Highest


To whom this may concern,

We thank you for choosing Boston Conversion Armaments to do business with us today. Our company believes that many defence actors, countries or private military contractors, too often ignore the value of obsolete military equipment. People, like countries, have the right to engage themselves in the race to acquire more modern, more efficient assets. But by doing so, they often blind themselves about the realities of war, about the material cost of any military conflict.
Our company pledges to provide its clients and customers with assets of extremely good quality without trying to oversell this type of goods. Our interest is not to acquire any type of equipment to sale it to a higher cost but to change the general approach of the defence institution regarding their own assets. More than some principles, it is our essence, our identity.

We are more than happy to acquire access to the Kolodezi Military Depot and Novoreshetovskiy Military Depot you proposed. Your application, as well as the conditions that you offer us, have been accepted.

We would like to remind you that equipment sold to BCA cannot be bought back at the same price. If you want to sale us back equipment you bought, we invite you to get in touch with our head office in order to discuss buyout prices.

We thank you again thank you again for choosing our company to do business. Such a choice, in a very competitive world of the defence industry is for us a motion of confidence in BCA. We look forward to continued doing so in the near future!

Sincerely,

Marcus Hornensson,
Vice-Chairman of the Board of Boston Conversion Armaments
