Indian security forces stepped up use of "French Hammers" in Kashmir


Indian edition Indian Express reports that French armored vehicles will be more actively involved in patrolling in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, which, in fact, is a disputed territory with neighboring Pakistan. Recently, the situation in this region has deteriorated sharply. In particular, exchanges of fire between Pakistani and Indian border guards have proven themselves. India accuses Islamabad of engaging militants in a border conflict.

Earlier, Indian police have already used French armored cars in Kashmir. The command of the police forces notes the security of the car from small bullets weapons caliber to 12,7 mm. It is also stated that the police are satisfied with the level of mine protection and the presence of several cameras for a circular review.

The manufacturer reports that the Renault Sherpa Light Scout armored vehicle is designed for 4-5 people, but Indian police note that in Jammu and Kashmir people use the vehicle to transport 6-7 people, and at least one person can fire from the Renault Sherpa.

    Protection against bullets with a caliber of up to 12,7, well, I don’t believe that the "cliff" will not take this kalymagu apart, the BEHU will take it apart.

      It's about an army armored car with a clearance of 600 mm, the ability to drive uphill at an angle of up to 45 degrees.
      - And if at 45 degrees, yes at such clearance, yes from a hill somersault? Well this will plow down a furrow ...

      Perhaps holding solitary in some projections and not armor-piercing. A cliff bursts her of course "will understand" smile

        The cliff, the cliff ... The cliff - this sucks completely, all the strength in the CPV and its version of the CPVT, 14,5 mm and there is no Sherpa, no armored personnel carrier, no BMP.

        Yes, and the fact that they shove seven into this cart ... I doubt it very much. And they will still fire ...

        - It was possible to replace many Latin letters in the name, write one big Russian "G".

    There are both armored and non-armored options. Renault Sherpa is equipped with a 4,8-liter turbo diesel engine Renault DXi5 with a capacity of 215 hp The indicator of maximum torque is much more impressive - 800 Nm at only 1200-1700 rpm. Optionally realize such tremendous traction helps Allison 6-band automatic transmission. A 3,8-ton SUV can reach speeds of up to 120-140 km / h (depending on the type of bodywork), and the range on one tank (190 liters) reaches 850-900 km.
