I'm still annoyed that the BMP-1 got an autloader too. No need to give it an autloader when it doesn't have one IRL. (same applies for Type 74, it only has a loader assisted mechanism, not a true autoloader)
It is fed from a forty round mechanized conveyor double-row magazine located around the turret ring of the BMP. The gun is reloaded by the M3 electromechanical autoloader with ammunition conveyor, but can be reloaded by hand if necessary. The autoloader is not reliable; it can break down from vibration when the vehicle is moving at high speed over rough ground, and its operation is a danger to the gunner's fingers.
