They mounted a 120mm mortar which is likely as heavy or heavier, so could likely mount AU220 as well. As seen in the official leaflet manufacturer of AU220 lists BMD1&2 as a candidate. Russians still use 500+ BMD2s and have 2000+ in Storage

But like i mentioned should be good base for an unmaned vehicle. I wonder why they built a new  platform for Uran9

I think the basics are there but the power sources are currently immature.

Once this beastie has a silent fuel based engine that will survive this treatment then things will be serious. 

It is important to note that the video is a comedy done on a YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsn6cjffsvyOZCZxvGoJxGg by a commercial video effects (VFX) group called Corridor Digital.  

Here is the associated video "Combat Robots: VFX Before and After Reveal": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIdqiwHsuI8  .    Their YouTube channels are fairly entertaining if not a little disturbing and I have been following them for a couple of years.  Here is another of their firearms-related videos called "Tiny Guns 2" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmqpxRTXeBc

The "disturbing" part comes from the fact that they show how current digital tech can be used to create convincing "fake" content.  One of their favorite topics is the "deep fake,"  a video technique that uses computer Artificial Intelligence (AI) to learn and recreate facial expressions of individuals to create realistic-looking computer generated videos.  Below are a couple of other examples of their work.  The first is a "deep fake" computer generated video that appears to show actor Kneau Reeves stopping a robbery and the second is its "behind the scenes" video.

Fascinating. Obviously, I did not know.  Though I did wonder about the name of the video. 

I remember the general thought that deep fakes would be used for political advertising, but so far it's only been used for this and porn.

That is an 82 mm mortar.  Drok 82mm mortar (Typhoon-VDV chassis)

Another 120 mm mortar quite similar to the RAK 120 of the Polish.

I wonder how such 82mm pieces could compete with automated, external 120mm systems such as alakran

This chassis is the replacement for the BMD-1 with this mortar being one of the options and the low end of the VDVs mechanised fire support. There is also a 20 tonne 120 mortar carrier based on a lengthened BMD-4 chassis. I don't think the VDV expect their operational area to be safe enough for a system like the Alakran.

They played with 120 mm mortar on Tigr , but i think it never got any traction ,its was sort of like the Wiesel 2 mortar 

They were likely unimpressed by the rate of fire such layout can produce. ,note the full baseplate and the lafete carried on the back as the mortar could be detached and used conventionally

Reloading is done under armor trough an armored loading port.
