All-terrain vehicle model range "Sergeant" was developed in the framework of the project "Light corrosion-resistant frame-modular vehicles for military and special purposes. Perspective model series with the use of problem-oriented polymer composite materials ". For the prototype, panels of external and internal cladding are made of composite materials and a three-dimensional spatial frame of aluminum alloys.
The aim of the project is to increase efficiency and durability, as well as to ensure the functional transformation of military vehicles and special-purpose vehicles. The new all-terrain vehicle on the basis of "Niva", according to the developers, has corrosion resistance, low mass, high impact strength and strength.
Also, thanks to the body of composites, the car is characterized by low visibility on thermal imagers, radio transparency, ability to self-extinguish when burning, resistance to chemicals and ultraviolet radiation, as well as frost resistance - there is no ice crust on its body panels.
Compared with "Niva", the "Sergeant" more than doubled the payload, which allows for the installation of weapons, apply reservation components and increase the strength of the bottom. In addition, reducing the weight of the vehicle facilitates its delivery by air and water transport. It will be possible to look at the invisible all-terrain vehicle from 22 to 27 in August in the Patriot park near Moscow.
