Czech private company introduced a new armored vehicle T815

The Czech company Excalibur Army of the Czechoslovak Group (CSG), a private defense industry association, began testing the first prototype developed by it at its own expense of the T815 Patriot MATMMV (Medium Armored Tactical Multi-Mission Vehicle) armored vehicle, reports bmpd with reference to Jane's International Defense Review.

Czech private company introduced a new armored vehicle T815

The car is made on the new chassis 4x4 Tatra Force (Tatra Trucks and Tatra Defense Vehicle enterprises include CSG).

“The T815 machine with enhanced mine protection is roughly in the same class as the American Oshkosh M-ATV. Its total combat weight is 12 tons, but can be increased to 15 tons. Capacity is six people. Steel armored housing on bolted joints is made according to a patented design called Kitted Hull Concept. The declared level of ballistic protection is up to STANAG 4569 Level 3 and the level of mine protection up to STANAG 4569 Level 2a / 2b, ”the article says.

The car is equipped with a Cummins ISB diesel engine with a power of 210 KW, maximum speed - up to 130 km / h, power reserve - 500 km. The prototype is equipped with a remotely controlled combat module with the installation of a machine gun caliber 7,62 or 12,7 mm.

In the future, the company plans to create an armored vehicle with an extended wheelbase and increased payload.

    Actually, the Czechs always made very interesting cars. There are both production and a design school.

      Yes, it looks interesting. Judging by the headlights, it seems that the design was made by a Japanese or a Chinese or a Korean laughing It would be interesting to see on a test drive.

        Or maybe someone from Buryatia?

        Yes, at the test site, to test for mines, bullets, splinters, and then off-road, as it shows itself.
        And beauty may not be useful at all.

    For some reason, it was inspired by the Tatra 815, it was a good truck in the 80-90s, powerful, with an interesting suspension "house", the air-cooled diesel engine. At that time, a miracle of engineering. They worked on the construction of the Khmelnitsky NPP, hard workers, cars.

    They are sculpted by everyone who is not too lazy to use these non-armored vehicles. Is it from them? Pepelats for PMC guarding something from savages. I do not see the prospects and the possibility of non-use in the war, at least of medium intensity, such as the Syrian, not to mention more.

    hi The inflation system allows the driver to adjust the pressure in the 20-inch tires on the go. "Patriot" is able to overcome vertical obstacles up to 50 cm high and cross trenches up to 90 cm wide. Also, an armored car can force water barriers up to 1 meter deep.
    The welded steel body of the armored car is made using the patented Kitted Hull technology. According to the developer, he provides ballistic protection according to the STANAG 4569 standard to level 3 (stops the armor-piercing bullet of 7,62 mm caliber at a distance of 30 meters), and also withstands the detonation of mines under the wheel and underbody.
    The standard weaponry of the Patriot implies a remotely-controlled combat module equipped with a 7,62 mm or 12,7 mm machine gun or a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.
    The crew of the "Patriot" - the commander and driver. There is also space for four additional fighters.

    This is most likely not the t-80bvm. They wrote on bmpd that this machine is for the marines, and not under a contract with an army of 62 tanks. Most likely they have size restrictions and therefore abandoned the side screens, as in the sample from Luga

    It seems to me that this family is prone to harassment on slopes and potholes.

    The armament market is so specific that to find a buyer, a car must really be very outstanding in its performance characteristics. In this aspect, newcomers always have a lot of problems. So far, nothing super new can be seen, but getting through and getting a contract for 200-300 cars from the US Army can only be a miracle, they have their own production capacities idle. As a rule, due to the low price, African countries may be of interest or not rich countries in Asia, again I have to compete with China, but I doubt that the Czechs want to sell such cars for nothing, which means that there are not many prospects.
