“The machine has the most advanced intelligence equipment and means of protection. So, to monitor the terrain there is a radar 1L-120-1. It is able to detect targets in the rain, snow, smoke screens, determine the coordinates and direct artillery at them. A single fighter is detected at a distance of up to 7 km, a tank is already at a distance of 16 km, ”writes the author Roman Katkov.



The laser range finder determines the distance to large objects at a distance of 10 km, and to buildings or, for example, objects such as a hill, to 25 km. A thermal imager and night vision device are also available.

According to the author, "mounted on the PDP-4A" Argus "communications can operate at a distance of fifty kilometers, including in motion." Special equipment allows you to quickly process, store and transfer information about the identified targets.



A novelty for machines of this class was the appearance on it of the “Curtains” - a high-precision optoelectronic suppression system weapons.

The armored vehicle is armed with a PKTM machine gun, caliber 7,62 mm, mounted in a turret, the ammunition load of which is 1000 ammunition. Weight - 13,8 tonnes, diesel power - 300 hp, speed - up to 65 km / h (on water - 7 km / h), 550 km cruising range, crew - 4 person.

          . the main stuffing, and the "base" and BMP will come down ..

          I agree, especially since there are many such machines and that they are all cut into metal.

            Two is very pleasant in driving and patency at the level. Weapons for such machines are vestiges. The main thing is not to find yourself! And a little something to hide. Useful devices are a pity.

          I fully admit that the "filling" is thought out in such a way that it becomes on any suitable "base".

      They stuck snot on the old chassis and painted.

      Everywhere there are some wires on the case, the covers are closed manually.
      This means employees, each time when studying the terrain it is necessary to climb out of the cab and unscrew the covers of all sensors.

      Doesn’t anyone notice that this is frank garbage from our military industrial complex ?!

    A turning point in thinking has occurred. The tactics of positional confrontation faded into the background. I wonder how many new ones appeared in the Army?

    PRP-4A “Argus” - a modification offered by Rubtsovsk Machine-Building Plant OJSC, differs from the base machine in more advanced equipment (1L-120-1 radar, 1PN125 active pulse monitoring device and 1PN126 thermal imager), installed thermal smoke equipment, a set of masking devices (thermal screens and camouflage network) and a modern optical-electronic suppression system. soldier

        Running in what?
        This is actually a complete analogue of the Soviet PRP-4 with minimally improved equipment. And they showed their complete futility in at least three local wars.

            - Absolutely not corresponding to the tasks of the machine security
            - Impossibility of reconnaissance in motion
            - The inability to create a full-fledged remote NP
            - A very narrow intelligence sector, unacceptable for modern wars.

    I hope the result of these "tests" will be the rejection of the car ...
    Although on the other hand, the PRPs showed their worthlessness even in the first Chechen one, but no conclusions were drawn from this.
    The time of machines of this type took place in the middle of the last century.

    There is no retractable mast with optics and other sensors - this is not a buzz !, working from the tower is not always safe and secretive! )
