Assault "Typhoons" for engineering special forces

20
The assault and defensive battalions of the engineering troops will receive armored vehicles that will not only protect attackers from infantry weapons and fragments of artillery shells, but also support them with fire, as well as electronic warfare, report News.




Machines are created on the basis of armored vehicles "Typhoon-K". According to the Ministry of Defense, currently the “Typhoon” in the “assault” configuration is already undergoing military trials.

"Assault" Typhoon "is designed to deliver troops on the battlefield. The spacious troop compartment in the aft part of the vehicle accommodates seven attack aircraft, dressed in heavy armored suits IOB-3Sh. They protect the entire body of fighters from bullets and shrapnel. Through a combination of rigid metal, plastic and ceramic plates, as well as flexible elements made of aramid fabric, ”the article says.

To support the engineering units with fire, a remote-controlled combat module is installed on the machine, which can be equipped with the Kord heavy machine gun or the AGS-30 automatic grenade launcher. In the future, the installation of anti-tank guided missiles is not excluded.

The task of the EW system installed on the machine is to create a protective perimeter within which radio-controlled explosive devices often used by terrorists in urban combat cannot work.

Now the BTR-82 armored personnel carriers and the armored vehicles “Typhoon. The BTR-82 has good weapons and armor protection. It is suitable for general combat with a high-tech adversary, as well as for anti-terrorist operations and local conflicts. But it is very difficult to transport attackers-sappers inside them in heavy armor protection. Therefore we need "Typhoon-K". They can be used not only as transport, but also to ensure combat work. "Typhoon-K" covers fighters with fire, protects against improvised explosive devices and enemy drones,
The military expert Anton Lavrov told the newspaper.

    Question: what will they “storm” on such machines?

      There will be nothing - this is just the name, in the article their purpose is fully described:
      The assault "Typhoon" is intended for the delivery of military personnel on the battlefield ...

      ... Therefore, Typhoons-K are needed. They can be used not only as a transport, but also to ensure combat work. Typhoon-K covers fighters with fire, protects against improvised explosive devices and enemy drones, military expert Anton Lavrov told the newspaper.

        Nothing will be - it's just the name

        This is not a name, this is a destination.
        The battalion of assault and barrage was created at the end of last year, this is the first and so far the only unit of such an appointment in the Armed Forces of Russia, ”says its commander of the captain, Captain Vladislav Guscherov. - The personnel are currently practicing typical tactics storming objects in the city. Its task is to suppress enemy firing points in the front ranks of the attackers and, with the help of special means, ensure that infantry overcome any enemy defense. We have to learn how to competently act when passing through blockages, minefields, storming fortified areas. From lesson to lesson, we will complicate the combat situation and increase the variability of decisions made.


        Question: why do they need such a machine if it is not applicable during the assault in the city or during the assault on fortified areas?

        No, she has such a good niche, ensuring mine safety on the roads. However, this task has nothing to do with the "assault" actions.

          Most likely to mine under conditions of enemy fire on them.

              These machines can operate only in the "fields" in urban areas and in conditions of severely crushed terrain they are useless. Do you like Lopatov as a former military man not know this?

                May be. But wheeled vehicles in such conditions are even more useless, aren't they? Especially in sizes like Typhoon-K

          The article clearly describes what equipment and for what purposes it enters the assault battalion:
          Now the BTR-82 armored personnel carriers and the Typhoon. The BTR-82 has good armament and armor protection.

            The article describes a lot of things.
            However, the use of wheeled vehicles during the assault on the city is from the category of unscientific fiction. There and tanks have big problems in mobility.

      All that will need to be stormed. The main battlefield is now the city and roads. So everything will be all right there.

    prototype of the assault units of the Second World War. simple and competent solution. the tasks are the same but in modern realities.

      Yes, that's right, motorized rifles reinforced by sappers, stormtroopers and chemists with Bumblebees in the city are strength.

    Recall the experience of the Second World War, during the fighting in the city. First come the assault companies that break through the enemy’s defenses. They are followed by engineering, which make passages in minefields, etc. and behind them comes the infantry, so to speak, which cleans the perimeter.

    Why? On the contrary, “Typhoon” will be able to bring a group of sappers, for example, to a “settlement” with narrow streets with dense buildings and at the same time support them with fire while they are clearing mines or for example deliver them to a “ravine” into which a tank with a trawl or other self-propelled mine clearance will descend cannot and again support them with fire from their own “guns” as they say smile ..

    In my understanding, the assault equipment may be in TBMP, but not in the armored bus)) he has other tasks and driving up close to the front is clearly contraindicated to him .... so moving l / s, as part of the columns, in its immediate rear. ...

    And why do they exist and what will the airborne assault brigades of the Airborne Forces do then, because sappers with chemists will take all their bread from them?

      So, in the Airborne Forces, like the Marines, there are their own "assault-pioneer" and RBM units. So they won’t take it away, but rather - they will spread it with oil. yes

    As part of such units, logically speaking, the BMOT or other heavy armored personnel carrier with tank armor and a bulldozer blade would look more organically. I see 2 possible reasons for the appearance of an assault typhoon instead of such a machine:
    1) BMOT is not convenient for a heavy attack armored attack aircraft, and the T-15 has not yet been brought up (if you haven’t ordered a long milking, judging by the last parade)
    2) The command wants to maintain the high mobility of the assault units in an extensive network of roads and urban areas.
    I don’t know how much this is. Personal opinion....
