Chinese CS / VN3 armored vehicles undergo pilot operation in Belarus

30
The new Chinese-made armored cars CS / VN3 are undergoing research tests in the protection battalion of the 361-th Base of Protection and Maintenance (CEL) of the Ministry of Defense of Belarus, the blog reports dambiev with reference to the newspaper "To the Glory of the Motherland".


Chinese CS / VN3 armored vehicles undergo pilot operation in Belarus


The bulk of the research on the capabilities of the armored car came at the peak of the events of the main event of this year’s combat training - the strategic exercise “West-2017”.

Research tests are carried out with the aim of “assessing the performance indicators of the test object in certain conditions of its use, as well as selecting the best operating conditions in the future”.

It is already known that armored vehicles CS / VN3, which will go to the troops, will be equipped with a ladder in order to climb on the armor, and door locks (standard vehicles are not equipped with them). Tests should end before the end of the month.

The car got its own name "Dragon".



In the field, during the exercise, we will organize the security of the facilities of the integrated control center and officials. During the exercise, “Dragons” are used by units that have organized the access system at checkpoints, as well as escorted car convoys with officials when moving to a newly designated area. I note: armored cars are equipped with 12,7-mm heavy machine gun and are a serious means of destruction and fire support on the battlefield,
told the commander of the battalion of protection 361-nd base Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Guryanov.

The newspaper reminds that the first batch of armored vehicles was delivered to Belarus in June of this year in accordance with an agreement between the Belarusian Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of National Defense of the People's Republic of China on the provision of free military-technical assistance.

        Why does China supply equipment to Europe? It has its own enterprises. They produce armored vehicles of much higher quality. Chinese car = short-lived garbage.
        I also saw news where it was said that China is moving its factories to Belarus. Where is the cost of a working hour LESS than in China! Is Belarus really terrible with a salary? What is happening? request

        Caliber does not matter. Belarus is diversifying the army from Russia, does not want to depend on us. And the Chinese are much cheaper than the same "Tiger". Reliability is out of the question, the main thing is independence from “us”, but dependence on “them”!

        And what did Russia give armored cars and Belarusians refused? Strange are not Slavs, but some commentators. These armored vehicles China provided free of charge. Nobody would buy from them for money. For money and their cars there. The same Fox based on the Tiger, as well as the Volat V-1 MZKT-490100.

        1970290c3df7befea774ed23948b8823The purchase of modern weapons even the rich countries can not afford, what can we say about Belarus, which is the only European country to systematically reduce the budget of the military department. The assistance of Russia, which has immeasurably greater potential, could help, but the shortage of production capacities at the enterprises of the Russian defense industry, along with economic difficulties, and sometimes not the pragmatic, but purely businesslike approach of the Russians, became a serious obstacle to the implementation of the rearmament programs of the Belarusian army.

        This situation can be rectified, at least partially, by the power of the defense-related enterprises of Belarus, which are part of the structure of the State Military-Industrial Committee of the Republic.

        The Belarusian defense industry, along with the implementation of the modernization programs of the existing samples of the VVST, have launched the production of navigation instruments, flight systems, communications equipment, antenna devices, radio stations, computing systems, automation systems, software, optics and much more.

        A whole series of promising new types of weapons and military equipment has been created and mastered in Belarus. Among them: communication and information transmission systems, portable digital radio stations, electronic warfare systems and radar systems (Vostok, Rosa-RB, jamming systems Storm, jamming systems for radio navigation and GPS “Canopy”), new air defense systems and small weapons. The modernization, combined with the overhaul, of almost all radar stations that are in service with the Armed Forces of Belarus, has been completed. New models of UAVs “Golden Eagle-1”, “Golden Eagle-2”, “Grif-100” appeared. Brought to operational readiness and the system of robotic weapons "Adunok". In addition, a very significant event was the adoption of the Polonaise long-range missile system.

        The specialists of MZKT, JSC in a short time have developed and prepared for release a light-armored combat vehicle “Lys” and V-1. In the current year, the upgraded BTR-70MB1 was adopted.

        Implementation of programs to extend the life of existing weapons continues. The Su-25 and MiG-29 aircraft have been mastered and are being repaired and modernized, the Grad’s MLRS BM-21 upgraded to Belgrade’s BM-21-M aircraft. As a result, the activities of defense enterprises contributed to the adoption by the Armed Forces of Belarus about 900 units of the newest, modernized and repaired models of weapons and military and special equipment.

        But, as in the case of the purchase of Russian weapons, the main constraint on the process of re-equipping the Belarusian army due to the potential of its own military-industrial complex is more than a modest economic potential of the country.

        The necessary funds could be sought through the export of military and dual-use technologies. And cooperation between Belarus and Azerbaijan can be a good help to increase export earnings. According to the assumption of the Belarusian military expert Alexander Alesin, Baku can become one of the largest buyers of domestic weapons in recent years.

        It is worth noting that the military-technical cooperation of Belarus with Azerbaijan lasts more than fifteen years. For a long period of time, Baku was one of the main buyers of Minsk of Soviet-made weapons and military equipment from the arsenals of the former Belarusian Military District. The negotiations of the Chairman of the State Military-Industrial Committee of the Republic of Belarus, Major General Oleg Dvigalev with Colonel-General Hasanov Zakir Asker oglu on current issues of the Belarusian-Azerbaijani military-technical cooperation, which took place on October 9, allowed the expert community to talk about new contracts. And the newest Belarusian rocket fire system “Polonez” can become one of the applicants for export.

        Of course, arms exports are vital for our country. The main thing is that GVPK enterprises do not become a “cash cow” and do not start working exclusively for export to the detriment of their Armed Forces. With all this, it is always necessary to take into account the needs of your army, and not promote profitable for sale models of weapons and military equipment.

        Take for example the armored vehicle "Caiman". Everyone is good car - and speed, and weapons, and armor. However, the Caiman fits well only for special operations forces that are armed with wheeled samples of military equipment. For troop reconnaissance units, tracked vehicles with comparable maneuverability and powerful armaments are characteristic.

        The attempts undertaken by the state military industry to introduce such vehicles for military intelligence are certainly welcome. But it is necessary to take into account the specifics of the ground forces. The replacement of the BRM-1K armored reconnaissance vehicles in the combat units is already overdue. But you need to change to similar samples, but not to "Cayman." Moreover, it is necessary to install all specific samples of electronic equipment and reconnaissance equipment, which is not on the advertised car.

        The position of the military-industrial complex is understandable - it is economically more profitable to upgrade wheeled models of military equipment (lower cost of the initial model, relatively inexpensive units and a much higher export potential). However, it is necessary to take into account the requests of the Armed Forces, including the specifics of labor

          Everything is sensible in Belarus in the defense industry, if only the Bulgarians would buy the rest of the Mig-29 at the price of scrap. Or they would exchange for something their thread from the listed equipment. If the Chinese are so economical and inexpensive, science will be for our grabs from the military-industrial complex.

      China has a recession in production so that the government keeps the government at the expense of subsidies from the budget and supports production, giving away various equipment around the world, and it’s also a good advertisement for its products, but sorry, you’ll have to buy it at your own expense ...

    They took a test, I think that there and ours were touched for what there you need to touch. In general, a double impression, but because of the sea, the machine will not be a good choice for the brothers bulbs! And the service station is far away and the components are far away. And with Russia, Belarus quarrels like death.

        The plant is still being completed and whether it will produce piece spare parts for Dragons is a very big question.

    China seriously spud Belarusians! The only thing that strikes me in this story is that Belarus at the Soviet school of mechanical engineering for the army pecks at Chinese consumer goods. Although they themselves can produce no worse, but does it seem like Old Man plays games with the Chinese?

    But seriously, this article is like a joke to the editors of the site. In Belarus, their established production of vehicles is idle, and they will buy something in China. It would be better to restore the production of their tractors again. The world unit was!
