Hussites continue to destroy American equipment


“This“ crocodile ”, thanks to a special capsule, is considered a highly protected armored vehicle, it is able to withstand an explosion 6 kg of TNT under the bottom and 8 kg - under the wheels. Moreover, in order to better resist the rocket-propelled grenades, the car in the photo is equipped with anti-cumulative gratings, ”writes the author of the material, Lev Romanov.



The weight of the armored car is about 27,6 T, its capacity is 10 people. Engine power - 450 l. with., gearbox - automatic. Maximum speed on the highway - 120 km / h. Power reserve - 645 km.

Apparently, the front right wheel of the armored car was damaged first. The explosion was of such strength that it ripped off the heavy armored hood. The car completely lost its course and was abandoned by the crew and the landing party.



Also, another armored car of the Oshkosh M-ATV coalition was also a victim of a Hussite attack. Explosion of a landmine turned all the front part of the MRAP. As a result, this car can be added to the list of irretrievable losses.

      The coalition has a hodgepodge - there is even Russian equipment.
      Here is the emirate BMP-2015 destroyed in 3:

      And the video with the Georgian Didgori 2 was valid - during the next Saudi drape, this BA fell apart on the go, losing front wheels on a dirt road.

        Would you somehow post in a closed footnote or something ... you injure the local patrons.)))
        The article suggests that:... The car completely lost its course and was thrown by the crew and the landing ...So there was someone to leave and the car might have completed its task. All the same, mine protection is much better than without it.

          Yes, everything is fine - they will write it off to crooked users. ICH, will most likely be right. smile
          In principle, with the combat effectiveness of the ground forces of the Coalition, everything became clear after the well-known video, when the Husites on a clear day at 100% visibility simply went to the observation point of the Coalition and killed everyone there.

            There are the most sensible, it’s the Hindu mercenaries in the Emirate’s army))). The rest are careless vagabonds who rely more on the will of the Almighty than on the instructions of the charters. In addition, in the video, as I recall, the sun was at its zenith and in such in the heat of the day, the enemy should not have attacked! So this enemy is fighting unprofessionally, and I would even say dishonestly. Well, yes, the Sun at the zenith of them all is a judge there ...

    Unfortunately, after the brutal assassination of former President of Yemen, Saleh, the Hussites did not have long. Even their patrons - Iranian Shiites - were evacuated from Yemen under the guise of diplomatic staff. Iranian Shiites also suffer losses, recently on the site there was infa that Iran was killed after airstrikes missile weapons adviser.

    Dumb headline "Hussits continue to destroy American equipment."
    A video of the destruction of the T-72 tank of the Syrian government army by the Free Army of Idlib was published on the Web: the tank was shot down with the help of the American anti-tank missile system BGM-71 TOW.

    As follows from the explanation to the video, the incident occurred in the eastern part of the province of Hama.
    So now you should write like this: "Idlib's free army continues to destroy Russian equipment"?

      Take, yes write, who does not give you, but do not you think it strange to post an article about the destruction of the Russian technology by the terrorists of the government of Syria by the terrorists in the Russian Internet edition?

      for me, the Yankees' enemies have always been, always will be, I can only remind you what Caton said about Carthage completing each of his speeches in the Roman Senate, USA = Hitler

        I write, I write when there is something.
        No, it does not. The respected Russian Internet publication does not make a secret out of well-known facts.
        Enemies, like friends, are free to choose for themselves.
        The venerable Mark Porcius Cato the Elder passed away about 2200 years ago, but he would have turned over three times in a coffin if he could find out for what reason you remembered him, which has already become an aphorism, maxim. He was a realist.

    New cars reduce the loss of people, and not save the equipment.
    It used to be full of corpses, but now it is shell-shocked and slightly wounded.

      Just a truck with an armored cab and an armored capsule. The shed is large and heavy, if bulletproof glass, then probably protection only from bullets 7.62 and a simple DShK, not to mention the KPVT, will cut it like canned food. Well resists undermining, but how big it is! 3 m in the cockpit, and he also has a shed as an option, then it will be 3.5 m. In addition, the partisans in the war had mines that didn’t work on the first press and it’s worth putting a landmine on the second press and the problems from detonation will greatly increase. Maintainability due to the complexity of the device, no in the field, only a repair station which of 3 pieces will be 1 piece to collect. Although the plus is that the most idle equipment costs 680 thousand bucks

        This is a truck, not an armored personnel carrier. And rescued soldiers are more expensive than all repairs.

    It is worth noting that not only an armored car will explode from a landmine, but the same touted super-duper powerful APC will fly into the air from a land mine.
