In Japan, demonstrated an improved armored personnel carrier to "protect the islands"


"The project of an improved wheeled armored vehicle, the Wheeled Armored Vehicle (Improved), was launched to create a replacement for the 96 type armored personnel carriers adopted by the Japan Self-Defense Forces in the 1996 year," writes the resource.

The Japanese command sees this armored vehicle as part of a new strategy involving “counteracting the invasion of the islands” (meaning the defense of the islands in the South China Sea, whose membership is disputed by China).

“In comparison with its predecessor, the 20-ton machine will receive improved protection (including mine protection), as well as a reinforced suspension. An armored personnel carrier with a crew of three can carry up to eight paratroopers. A new 10,8-liter horsepower 500 diesel engine is installed on the car, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour while driving on the highway, ”the material says.



State tests of armored vehicles should begin before 2019. According to their results, the issue of adopting an armored personnel carrier will be resolved.

    I wonder who the islands are going to defend from? No one is going to attack Japan. If only the Shinkaku Islands, but there they are unlikely to be useful. With their huge public debt at 200% of GDP, it would be better to think about the economy ...

      Most likely it was meant for the disputed islands with China.

        Somehow this armored personnel carrier suspiciously resembles the Swiss "Piranha" 8x8. Did the Swiss share technology?

          Germany-Netherlands GTK BOXER - The modern German-Dutch armored personnel carrier GTK BOXER is designed for use in multi-rifle ground forces. A similar APC costs € 3 million per unit. The case is equipped with solid steel and "modular armor". GTK BOXER is designed for a crew of 3 people. The speed on the highway is 103 km / h, the range is 1050 km. ...

      Yes, just modernization type 96 (as it is written - Improved), the engine is more powerful (500 against 360), the protection is more impressive (96 weighs 14,6 tons).
      And it’s already the zhurnalyugi have come up with what they are urgently adopting after friction with China over the islands.
      By the way, on these islands it’s not needed at all. Moreover, it doesn’t swim.

    And why they didn’t show the bombing — they didn’t set the mines, but there wasn’t any bombing! His main trouble is the high altitude, it’s convenient for the crew and the landing, but this is an excellent target in the open.

      all that is about him on the English language network:
      In a news release, Japan's Acquisition, Technology & Logistics Agency (ATLA) announced that the prototype was handed over on Jan. 10. Built by Japan's Komatsu Limited, the vehicle is 8.4 meters (27 feet) long, 2.5 meters (8 feet) wide and 2.9 meters (9 feet) high, with a weight of approximately 20 ton. It can carry 11 onboard including three crew members in its basic APC guise ...
      ... Japanese MoD budget documents indicate that 4.7 billion yen (US $ 41 million) had been earmarked to produce the prototype and conduct trials, with manufacturing starting in 2015. Trials with the prototype are expected to last until 2019 ...
      ... It is envisaged the new vehicle will equip JGSDF combat and combat-support units for peacekeeping operations as well as what the ministry terms “counter island invasion” scenarios, with obvious inference to taking back Japanese-administered islands in the East China Sea against an invading force.

      about the waterfowl, the Japanese bought this ...

    Overall dimensions "Boomerang", mm:

    - width along the body 3000

    What misery turns the most delicious from your favorite site - reading the comments. Even if YOU (the administration) received an order from the darkest office - to ban cons ... Then ... Well, you can also make secret ballots. Which are not visible, well, at least admins will see. How people react. A bunch of zeros in the ratings - which are unambiguously interpreted as a bunch of minuses. And you will be more closely watching them, as we are observing, for the enemies of our society ... Is it really now necessary to react to every amphibian cinquefoil comb creature with an answer? Apparently you yourself do not know? Why all this?
    So - this is the only way to reassure me that the administration of VO was bribed, blackmailed, replaced - make secret ratings. I want to see who and what I didn’t like. It will not affect the rating and everything else. I WANT TO SEE HOW MY COLLEAGUES REACT ON COMMENTS !!!
