In Syria, failed MLRS Smerch?

Multiple launch rocket systems are currently the most powerful weapons the SAR army, therefore the appearance on the Internet of a photo of the MLRS “Smerch” transported on a trailer immediately caused assumptions about its breakdown, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


In Syria, failed MLRS Smerch?


According to a large number of users, the installation broke down, so it was evacuated to the rear.

The agency asked for clarification from the Syrian crisis expert Yuri Lyamin.

The fact is that the transportation of military equipment on trailers in Syria is a long tradition. Good roads and arid climate in most parts of the country allow to save the resource of the undercarriage of military equipment, which can be deployed on trailers quickly and close to the front line,
said the expert.

Basically, in this way, of course, the tracked armored vehicles are transported, but the resource of such expensive and valuable equipment as the Smerch MLRS combat vehicle is also not endless. Considering that, apparently, the Syrian army has only a few such installations, then it becomes clear why the military are trying to protect it from possible damage along the roads,
added Lyamin.

Indeed, the MAZ - 7311 cross-country vehicle has the D12A-525A engine, which is a version tank a power plant with a relatively low resource (only 800 hours) and with a gigantic appetite (100-125 liters per 100 km). Therefore, it is not surprising that the Syrian military prefer to carry "Tornadoes" on trailers, the publication concludes.

      Saving both fuel and engine life, everything is correct.

            It is truth too!!! good But it takes it more calmly that everything is also necessary, without nerves, the nerve cells cannot be restored. Something has been fixed to fix it, or throw it away !!! laughing

                Max, but this law works for me in the opposite direction, unlike my wife. All that falls into her grab will necessarily break, and itself, supposedly without her participation. But to fix it all - it is transmitted to me. Well, she still does not know how the computer turns on, otherwise I would find myself in the bathhouse a day later for technical reasons. And one more pleases - he does not touch the netbook presented to her on DR. laughing

                  Well, one won’t remember: “What one person did, he can forever break another. And then he will suffer and repair the third.” lol But seriously, Sergey, that is, this type of people in whose hands everything is literally burning. In childhood, by the way, we were all like that. wassat

                    Max, and since childhood, I loved to repair any garbage. And according to the article and in essence - this one has “broken” and they are taking it to mend:
                    but these are simply transported:
                    Well, I don’t want to insert a land trailer, I found a marine one. good

        To save in everything you need to put on the trailers.

      And if Tornado followed its own course, then the publication would also say: - "Why the Syrian military do not move Tornadoes on trailers" fellow

    such tires do not live on asphalt for a long time, after 500 km they will erase to 0 under load, and there is also temperature.

    Yeah, it's broken - they drove to the nearest housing department to clean the pipes!

      I also thought about this.
      However, when the wave of emotions subsided, he decided to make a pretense. So, let it be a conditional 100l / 100km. I have power in the car, of course, less than 500 hp, but the torque is + -600 nm (a little more than 3 times less than that of the "tank"). In this case, 8 cylinders, not 12. But the resource is 400-500t.km.
      Consumption 15-20l / 100km. Those. 5 times less. Now the question is “how so, what kind of horseradish motor does Smerch have?”
      And here are the answers - my power, this is hi-tech automatic transmission, all sorts of Vanos, injections, and other joys of a stuffed car. But this is not the case in military equipment. Plus military engines + - omnivores should be. Of course, what exactly is diesel here. It turns out that most of the fuel goes into heat and torque. And something tells me that the temperature is not very acidic for this engine.

      Yes, it’s very sad that the engine is shit. But this is still the engine of war - there is no place for capricious bullshit that I can fail for "all sorts of nonsense at any time."

        question: how long will the “Tornado” take in these same 800 hours? and how many hours does your passenger car wind those same 400 t km? It’s strange for me to compare. kilometers with hours.

          400t.km / 160km / h (my cruising) = 2500 hours a guaranteed resource comes out of me.
          800h * 50km / h (cruising at D12A-525A) = 40000km (40t.km.).

          It turns out that the engine life of one of my civil engines is approximately equal to the engine life of ten military engines. At the same time, mine is certainly not viable in military conditions, I understand that. Nevertheless, mine is quite pulling a car weighing about 2,5 tons.
          Something like that.

            what can I conclude: on the "tornado" is quite a good engine is! soldier the army has no problems with repair and replacement (you don’t need to talk about wartime conditions, the same tank "lives" on the battlefield an average of 43 minutes)

    ... with a gigantic appetite (100-125 L per 100 km) ...

    This, by the way, is not much. The same 72 on concrete (!!!) "eats" from 190 and more per 100 km ... and this is not the limit of gluttony.
