The number of MT-LB used in Syria has increased significantly

Multi-purpose armored transporters MT-LB were first seen in Syria only in August of this year. At first it was about several machines, but now their number has increased significantly, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


The number of MT-LB used in Syria has increased significantly


"In some units," moto-league "even began to push the infantry fighting vehicles BMP-1. It is worth a look at these frames. In this case, the MT-LB is even larger than the BMP. On the armored transporters there is a ZU-23-2, an improvised installation with a heavy machine gun, ”notes the author of the material Lev Romanov.



Previously, options with automatic grenade launchers AGS-17 and recoilless guns got into the lens.

According to military experts, most of the Syrian BMP-1 are in a very worn out state. Most of them - in the ranks from the very beginning of the military conflict.

Therefore, assistance in the form of armored transporters MT-LB, which are highly reliable, came very on time, the author concludes.

          I won’t say anything about new ones, I don’t know. But after that, that's for sure.

            Well done MOT is already at least something.

            I will write this: BMP-14 received by us in the 15-1th years didn’t pass. And at the time of the "drive" and arrival at the duty station, they were a terrifying sight.

              BMP-14 BMPs received by us in the 15-1 years did not pass. And at the time of the "drive" and arrival at the duty station, they were a terrifying sight.

              And in 95 we got BMD, also in poor condition, we drove through one. And at the same time, on the same base, BMP-2 from the GSVG were sent for remelting. BMP is new, there were still zips under the seals, but were destroyed by agreement with the United States.

        Somehow contradictory. You can also say about the T-55.

          Instead of T 55 they are now using, with no less success, T 72 (with a bunch of letters and numbers), T 80, T 90, etc. What can be proposed instead of the old MT-LB?

          this is an obsolete technique

          Outdated morally, or due to physical wear and tear?
          By the way, both MT-LB and many other armored vehicles did not at all exhaust their modernization resource.
          Take EVERYTHING out of the (practically "eternal") armored hull, and put in new units and weapons ...

      In the sense of "new"? For your reassurance, would it be worth cutting their bodies, and making new ones from the resulting metal? 8)))
      Everything is much simpler: technology in the war "kills" very quickly. And MT-LB is the very machine that is very loyal to intensive use. Change the filter in a timely manner, and all the way. Well, geese, wheels and batteries as they become unusable.

        I think ours are doing everything right! On the storage bases of this good shaft, and the longer it stands there, over the years it is better not to become, tea is not cognac! :)) Compared with BMP-1, 2 in the matalyga more for armored space and patency, be healthy! To be honest, I would have installed "Cornflower" on it.

      And what about the `` matolyga '' who has become obsolete? A reliable machine, simple, its operating experience is huge, any tractor can handle it, spare parts with a shaft.

    MT-LB is an eternal machine, its creators probably did not suspect what a hit of all times and peoples they create.
    This is the AN-2 on the tracks.
    A simple, reliable, non-killing machine is the basis for a huge family of various specialized machines.
    And most importantly, she has a flat roof-platform where you can drag on what you want of course in a reasonable redistribution.
    This is perhaps a candidate for the Guinness Book.

    Most of them are in service from the very beginning of the military conflict.

    ... and they’re still running ... this is the groundwork for our military industry !!!! .. good

    Good thing and let it be used, of course. But the main thing is that Motolyg should be enough for us, because for the Russian Plain it is even more irreplaceable and effective.

      I think that's enough. Once they were made in Kharkov, now the production is carried out at Muromteplovoz. There is a suspicion that the "Ukrainian backlog" in Syria and was sent as a replacement for new Russian-made equipment.

      Motolygi were originally created exclusively as a tractor and a "field truck." The fact that they are being pushed to the forefront is misuse. Well, Toyota did not think that their farmer pickups instead of a tent for a picnic will receive two Zushny trunks ...

    In the front-line intelligence regiment of the Krylo-2 UAV, the MT-LB carried these airplanes on themselves. But the UAV "Wing -2" quickly became obsolete, so maybe the base from them now was surrendered to Syria.

    Well, why send new ones there? I think that Shoigu understands everything. But new ones for testing need to be sent just to that.
