The Chinese told about the "fastest" BMP amphibious


According to the developers of military equipment from the Chinese corporation Norinco, they were told that their offspring “are capable of reaching a maximum speed of up to 65 kilometers per hour on land,” and on water this sample is able to travel at speeds up to 30 kilometers per hour.

Experts of the corporation claim that such characteristics make the VN18 BMP "the fastest military amphibian".



The mass of the BMP is 26 tons, the machine is equipped with an 1600 engine with horsepower. According to the military, it is the most powerful military equipment in its class.

The BMP VN18 was commissioned by the People’s Liberation Army of China in 2006.

According to media reports, the weaponry located in the turret includes an 30-mm automatic cannon, a paired 7,62-mm machine gun and an HJ-73 ATGM launcher.

    Purely PR! Do not feed this thing, especially when the turbines are on. There are also problems with cross-country ability, adapted only for the prepared shore ... Purely a prototype for something ...

      Sasha, dashing trouble began. Even if there is a prototype, the Chinese will not stop there and will continue to work in this direction. And for what? Look at the map of China and figure out where they need high-speed amphibians. wink

              What does "not feed"
              The amphibious assault, which is delivered directly to the shore on the shore, without any "transport targets", this is a song! And the armor also has, besides the tracks, the firepower at the level!
              Interestingly, they will reach Taiwan under their own power? Yes, even if they don’t reach, it’s certainly possible to lower barges several tens of kilometers from the coast.

        If this goes so, then in years 5-7 Russia will buy armored vehicles from China (((

      Here speed is not an indicator. A duck, she is a duck (in the sense of a bird). Maybe a lot, but very mediocre.

      BMP weight is 26 tons, the car is equipped with an engine with a capacity of 1600 horsepower.

      Vague doubts torment me ... Not every tank has an engine of such power, and here is the BMP-amphibian. Where is the trailer with the fuel tank?
      Here, either the Chinese are cunning or the correspondents misunderstood ...

        Everything is much more interesting there. They write that "It develops 590 hp on land and 1 hp on water"
        Apparently, the engine power on land is limited. Perhaps this is due to its cooling.

      I agree. With these parameters, the cruising range is not more than 100 km by land. Or to carry fuel for the place of the Marines)))

        And the fuel does not eat measured, followed by the refueler.

      For me, the engine was crammed into the body of the Soviet BMP-2 5 times more powerful and larger (BMP-2 has 300 hp), therefore there is almost no airborne separation (BMP-2 facing the sides) ...
      That is, it is a fire support vehicle, not an infantry fighting vehicle.

    Hmm .. an interesting car .. China is building up amphibious forces .. the aspiration vector is clear, the South, not the North.

    the machine is equipped with an engine capacity of 1600 horsepower.
    and this at
    BMP weight is 26 tons
    and at the output of everything
    "Able to reach a maximum speed of up to 65 kilometers per hour on land"
    Yes, let them build. They just BROKEN on this machine. Since they hide another VERY important indicator, namely, STOCK. But he is not so great.


    And lastly a video where these Chinese super infantry fighting vehicles interact with our marines .... belay

    Why make a Formula 1 car from an infantry fighting vehicle, putting a clearly redundant engine. Apparently the PLA in the offensive will have a network of pit stops for refueling and replacing tracks. hi

    At the sight of something Chinese, the thought immediately visits: "Somewhere a jamb, well, it just cannot be gone!" . It sticks to them forever, it seems.

    on water, this sample is able to move at speeds up to 30 kilometers per hour.

    For 26 tons of infantry fighting vehicles (I don’t know which mover, even a water cannon) it will not be too much?

      China has set itself the task of making high-speed amphibians and is steadily moving in this direction. And they will have enough money to fine-tune this program, even despite the existing problems in this topic.

        Greetings, Maxim hi If they set the task to catch up and overtake (that's just whom), then this is their problem. But the performance characteristics are clearly overpriced.

    Yes, the Chinese went around us ...
    We would need such an engine on the Arctic DT-30 with the Carapace, and better - from the Cortege limousine: V-12 in 1000 hp + electric motor 100 forces, at least.

    and what is there such a new people saw or heard? How old is she and what is unique? All that is interesting there is the speed of movement on water, and the rest, as I suppose, is the usual BMP and the armament is BMP-2. Swim quickly and all the joy. The cruising range on land is 500 and this is the standard, I haven’t read it on water, but I think that if 30 km / hour rush it will float far away. It’s a marine machine to put pressure on Taiwan, although no one will reach a real assault. Ketais have long realized that it is easier to crush the economy and show weapons for credibility. So they will master Siberia in the bastard, so they’ll buy everything there so that they can come from there almost for nothing, it’s so easy, but they don’t have to donate it to the cold and taiga
