The American company presented a "rocket with tracks"

45
In the USA, a tracked all-terrain vehicle Ripsaw EV3-F1 was developed, which the creators dubbed the “caterpillar rocket”, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




Howe & Howe Technologies Inc posted a video clip from the presentation of the new machine on social networks.

In the video called “The Most Unbearable Car Ever Created,” it says that “thanks to the 1500 engine, the new all-terrain vehicle is gaining speed and has good maneuverability.”

The “caterpillar rocket” gets up “on the goat”, keeps the direction on the ice and easily overtakes the snowmobile.



It is reported that, unlike its predecessor, "Ripsaw EV3-F1 is made in the single version and is equipped with a double power engine."

The newspaper reminds that the previous tracked all-terrain vehicle EV2 is equipped with a 750-strong engine and accelerates to 100 km / h in 3,2 seconds.

    Well, of course, but where will it be applied?

      thanks to an engine capacity of 1500 horsepower

      The power is certainly impressive, but how much does this fly eat? what size is the fuel tank?

            That's how the children, by golly

            And didn’t you try to fly onto a log under the snow or a stone, didn’t you try at 100 km / h?

              No wonder America has such a military budget. And it will be twice as much if every American Marine is planted on such. But how will their marines on such toys cut through the mountains in Afghanistan? Or through the jungle? And in the sand?
              How about booking? Squadron of equestrian Buryat slingshots from slingshots with nuts completely shoots these mines ...
              A good toy for our people who wore raspberry jackets in 90. Only two-seater needs to be done - in order to hold the steering wheel with one hand and hold the other “paaadrug”. They removed the jacket chains, but the cattle remained. What else is this unit suitable for - I can’t imagine ....

          Is this as an afterburner (when shooting backwards)? Or vice versa, for emergency braking (when firing forward).
          The machine is impressive. For an intelligible application, and not sports pokatushek, it remains to answer the following main questions:
          1) carrying capacity;
          2) fuel consumption (and hence the range at one gas station);
          3) caterpillar resource;
          4) engine life.
          And so, the dynamics of acceleration is not the limit. With aviation starter powder boosters, you can do it faster.

            And to put rocket boosters - so Duc ... Imagine how cool - whack !!! and marines in 2 seconds in five kilometers. True, then throw a wonderful toy and continue on foot. Or wait, the tanker wait ....

              With the acceleration you mentioned: after 2 seconds in 5-km, the marines will be difficult to scrape off the walls of the cabin. Not that getting to go to battle on foot. But yes, the flight would be enchanting. After all, this is comparable to the 53Т6 missile defense system of the A-135 Amur missile defense system.

                Yeah ... I swung, however ... 9000 km per hour, perhaps cool.
                In my defense, I can say that in this case I acted like an American. A typical American reasoned, in my opinion, that the American technique, the American marines, means that nothing is impossible for them and the physics textbook is not written for them ..
                Ordinary Americans are looking for from the street North Korea in Europe .... fool Although they know for sure that a threat is coming from her.

                Before doubting my patriotism, look at what statement I answered. What does the APC have to do with it? I mean, in comparison with the “Sherp” and it was just about him. "Sherp", unlike "Ripsaw", can swim.

        Firstly, he has a safety framework, and secondly, nothing special will happen to him, as well as to a tank, as a matter of fact.

          But the pilot will be very pleased to somersault in a relatively heavy car.
          secondly, nothing special will happen to him, as well as to the tank, as a matter of fact.
          Tank is easier. It drives more slowly and erases from friction much longer. Bo erase many tons of metal.

      Yes, nowhere. 1 person. Easy - she won’t be able to carry anything much. A boosted engine cannot have a long service life. Eats a lot of fuel. Useless crap made from idleness.

    This is the Yankees of the master! hi They are happy about any development, and it doesn’t matter whether it is needed or not, successful or not very important, there is an advertisement that it is American! Although, very often, there is only their name there, but the idea was bought out from someone, or simply “borrowed”!

      and will be crammed to the eyeballs of TNT
      Strongly stuffed with TNT, it will either travel slower, which is unlikely due to such a powerful engine, or will quickly tear off the harp, which is more likely.

    Good speed, good maneuverability, but on loose snow this device is strong if it is unbent, then the driver will not see anything because of the snow thrown forward. The video clearly shows how it closes with a snow cloud. He still runs in the tundra, but in the Arctic, he is not a horse rider, from the word at all.
