Defense Ministry Forms Multi-Axis Heavy Duty Units

39
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation began the formation of regiments, battalions and mouths of multi-axle heavy wheeled tractors (MTKT), the task of which is the prompt delivery of armored vehicles to combat sites thousands of kilometers away, according to News.



The military department told the newspaper that the decision to form new military units was made at the end of 2016. They will become part of all military districts, combined arms and tank armies.

“The first three battalions of tractor units already appeared at the beginning of this year in the Central and Eastern military districts. They are based in Chita, Khabarovsk and Chebarkul. And by the beginning of 2018, such military units will appear in the Southern and Western districts, ”the publication says.

According to the newspaper, MTKT battalions are equipped with KAMAZ-11 three-axis 65225-tonne tractors, which on a special semi-trailer they can carry loads of up to 65 tons. 72-41 t).

It is reported that in every MTKT company there will be more 30 tractors.

Military expert, editor of the magazine “Arsenal of the Fatherland” Victor Murakhovsky:

Heavy equipment has serious limitations on the resource of the chassis and engines. Given the cost of such equipment, it is irrational to spend its resource on long marches. Moreover, to do it on public roads - tanks will simply break them. Therefore, the equipment was always transported either by rail or by road. The railway has its drawbacks - it is not possible to bring equipment directly to the place of its combat use. Modern heavy conveyors can do this. In addition, in ultra-low temperatures, they can provide combat vehicles with heating of the transmission group from their own equipment. As a result, a tank or other heavy equipment is constantly ready for immediate use.

        The biggest thefts are usually in the system of distribution of funds. All these funds, with roads, innovative development and the whole crap, where the official is not responsible for anything.
        In fact, everything has been invented.
        The contract for asphalt pavement is for the entire period of its operation 5 years! That's all, but then you can’t steal money.

      The union had 5 or 6 optmkt (a separate regiment of heavy multi-axle wheeled tractors). He himself served in 105 optmkt Kaliningrad, as a rule, all shelves cropped. In 1990, two companies were deployed for the withdrawal of equipment from Germany, but that did not grow together and the tanks were withdrawn by rail or through Baltiysk. More than 900 MAZ 537 of various modifications stood in storage, plus support vehicles, from MTO to PARMs.

    Well, it’s good that at least by the end of 2016, such vehicles were also armored at the adversary’s, the equipment was brought almost to the deployment lines in battalion columns. And for some reason, KAMAZ cars look a little weak, or it’s MAZ 537’s business, not only on the roads, but on mud and off-road vehicles.

          At the parade this year in my city, Naberezhnye Chelny showed the latest Platform-O wheeled tractor. In 2008, KAMAZ won the competition of the Ministry of Defense for conducting Platform research to create special wheeled chassis and wheeled tractors (SKShT). Already in 2010, R&D grew into the development work “Platform-O”.

        Oh, I'm sorry that I refused the gluttonous 537 Maz - and how now to maintain a factory in which there are already almost twice as many workers as the machines produced.

            Nothing, except that mechanical engineering in the Republic of Belarus is going downhill. bully The minimum number of trucks MAZ produced in 1996 - 9600, the forecast for 17 years - 11000. The bottom breaking is not far off. hi

    It is also necessary above the place of coupling to the sleeping places heated for the crew of the armored car. So as to not breaking away from the wards. :)

        And here by sight, the CAT engine, the suspension and control of the MZKT, the gearbox is optionally an automatic or conventional ... nothing new and has been in use for a long time. And a civilian engine with a high resource (and not a tank one)
