Gas turbine BREM-80U will become a reliable assistant of T-80BVM tanks

7
In the near future, Russian army units will be replenished with improved Tanks T-80BVM. On this radically modernized equipment will be installed new fire control systems, more reliable armor protection, improved guns and engines of increased power. As a result, the ground forces of the Russian Federation will receive combat vehicles, which in their characteristics will correspond to the latest foreign models.


According to military experts, to ensure the effective use of these tanks, it is necessary that they be supported by equipment created on the same basis. For example, if we talk about armored repair and recovery vehicles, then there is no better candidate than Omsk BREM-80U. This is the only tractor in the world that has a gas turbine engine, its power reaches 1250 HP.

Also available is an auxiliary GTE with a capacity of 24,5 l. s., which provides power for repair equipment.

Weighing in 46 tons, the tractor can reach speeds of more than 70 km / h on the highway. The maximum speed over rough terrain is within 60 km / h, the average speed is up to 45 km / h. The machine has high permeability, the angle of elevation reaches 32 degrees, roll - 30 degrees.



BREM easily overcomes a ditch wide in 2,8 m and a wall high in 85, see. Depth of a ford, which the machine is able to force without preparation - 1,8 meter. With special equipment it is possible to cross the river to a depth of 5 meters, without restrictions on the width of the water barrier.

Power reserve - 500 kilometers on dry dirt roads. If we consider the possibility of working on the ground for up to three hours, then this parameter is reduced to 350 kilometers.

On the tractor mounted crane 18 t and 25 t - using a polyspast. The existing winch has traction force in 35 ton-force, with a fourfold polyspast - 140 tf. The length of the main cable reaches 160 meters, the auxiliary cable spins up to 320 meters.

At BREM-80U mounted a variety of equipment, including welding, which allows for high-quality repairs in the field.

For self-defense mounted machine gun caliber 12,7 mm. The crew has a 4 man.

    There is also an auxiliary gas turbine engine with a capacity of 24,5 l. from.,
    A gas turbine engine of such power? Olepatka?

      Not. Exactly the same as in the T-80. Everything is fine, but in tow this ARV, in addition to the tank, should still pull the tank with kerosene.

        Absolutely accurate definition ... yes
        GTE place on the aircraft, warship (for obvious reasons, not on a tanker or dry cargo ship), diesel locomotive (also with reservations), but not on a tank or car.
        At least for today.
        Of the main reasons: gluttony, especially in the characteristic for the "land", variable modes, whimsicality and price.

          The tank is still acceptable for the march at high speeds. But the ARV tows a “potihenka” and eats all the fuel in a couple of walkers on a shoulder of 8 -10 km.

    As we "licked" at him in due time - when he was only shown! And now - it can go to the troops. One huge drawback is that the winch is only in front. After delivery to the shelter, you need to retake the damaged instance
    And about fuel economy - with a trained mechanical drive, the t-80 runs 470 km at one gas station. With additional tanks for 400 liters - 500 km. And not the last for BREM - the gas turbine engine does not have such a strict restriction on work on the dump. Look at the diesel resource of the t-72 and t-90 when working on the built-in self-digging system and the same parameter on the t-80. And often the ARVs also have to provide movement (it happened sometimes because of the lack of another “tractor with a blade”). It is also worth comparing the characteristics of a gas turbine engine and diesel engine according to the parameter - between repair hours before and after a thorough repair. The fact that a gas turbine engine is more expensive is its Achilles heel. But in the field he "pulls" out of the object in 30 minutes with a little.
