Upgraded "motooliga" will be easier on 800 kg

Modernization of the legendary floating multipurpose tractor MT-LB, nicknamed "motor-rail", will make it easier on the 800 kg, which will allow to install additional armor, reports RIA News a message from a representative of the Remdiesel plant.


Upgraded "motooliga" will be easier on 800 kg


As part of the state defense order, Remdizel is upgrading MT-LB in order to increase the power and controllability of the vehicle, as well as to reduce weight, primarily by installing a new KAMAZ-740.50 engine. Power is increased to 360 horsepower, and the total weight of the armored personnel carrier is reduced by 500 kilograms,
said a plant representative.

The new hydromechanical steering box will allow the car to turn on all gears with a controlled turning radius.

Also, the modernization involves reducing the weight of the tracks: due to the installation of tracks with a closed hinge, weight reduction is achieved by another 300 kilograms. As a result, the total weight of the car will fall on 800 kilograms. This allows you to put additional armor and protect the machine,
told the company.

Recall, the MT-LB (multi-purpose light truck, armored) was widely used in the Soviet era as an armored personnel carrier, as a sanitary evacuation vehicle, as a tractor for T-12 and MT-12 "Rapier" anti-tank guns, as well as a self-propelled mortar and anti-aircraft gun . The machine was actively used in battles in Afghanistan and other military conflicts.

    fine. modernization of old cars, plus phased delivery of new ones. the implementation of the project to reduce recycling and increase modernization is evident. Well, the added armor doesn’t hurt the old man.

      Nobody will hang armor on a moto league - it is intended for other purposes. This is an armored personnel carrier for cargo and l / s to carry during rotation. They do not plan to poke her under fire, for this there is a BMP.

        Pordon, you read the article? which means under fire, not under fire. according to the written yes. here usually in hostilities the fire itself finds a victim, substitute, do not substitute. Yes, the load is different.

              I see. NOT to hang armor on a moto league, but to improve consumer properties, unification and maintainability. Moreover, it makes no sense to produce an old engine and gearbox when there are new and better ones. As the resource is developed, the old ones are replaced with new ones, nothing unusual.

                The article directly says why:
                As a result, the total mass of the car will fall by 800 kilograms. This allows put extra armor and protect the car,

                  This allows you to put a bar with a jacuzzi, but I doubt that they will. The hull of the motorbike is thin, build up armor with conventional armor plates - reduce structural rigidity. Hanging ceramics is not justifiably expensive.

                    increase armor with ordinary armor plates - reduce structural rigidity. Hanging ceramics is not justifiably expensive.

                    if you decide to do, then there is an option.

    It is encouraging that ours began to think before doing. Upgrading is probably easier and cheaper than developing a whole new one. In any case, in third world countries there are those who want to buy.

      That would be very cool.
      But some fears are the replacement of the “tractor”, “unkillable”, albeit heavy, over 1200 kg, YaMZ-238 with a lighter (about 900 kg), automobile, much more forced KamAZ 740.50.
      Will such a choice affect the reliability of the engine in harsh conditions of military operation?
      In the "north", in the Siberian tundra, etc., the operators prefer YaMZ.
      The plant, in many respects, exists for profit and if the customer in the person of GABTU does not follow it strictly, the customer strives to do what is easier, cheaper, etc.

        The new transmission will allow better load distribution, so that operational reliability should not be affected.

          On art, hz and on matalyga YaAZovsky diesel the most. Due to low revs, it creeps through the mud and does not stall. KAMAZovsky is high-speed. There is a suspicion that when landing in the mud the diesel engine will stall, as on an IFV.

        What Kamz allowed to do with itself, Kamaz will not allow it. And the advantages of MTLB in the mountains are likely to come to naught. And on the MTLB put Yaroslavl multi-fuel, which even worked on donkey urine. And among techies, YaMZ is considered a better engine than KamAZ.

    The motorcycle league has serious prospects both for export modernization and domestically - God only knows how many more we have in storage and how they can still be used.

    It is worth recalling the reasons for the record longevity of the Soviet RPG-7: the endless modernization and improvement of rocket-propelled grenades, while the launch tube does not essentially change.

    So the old Soviet technology can have a very serious export potential. And these should be our contracts in as many cases as possible.

        Criticism is about nothing. MT-LB are in service with Iraq (approx. 400 pcs.), Bangladesh (over 130 pcs.), Kazakhstan (approx. 150 pcs.), Finland (more than 100 pcs.) - the figures are taken from open sources.

        The MT-LB operating countries are cited, the political position of which leaves suggest the possibility of allowing representatives of the domestic military-industrial complex to upgrade existing equipment. The most interesting in this regard, I believe, is Iraq.

        As for our stocks, I clearly and concretely wrote:

      MTLB can be used only in the deep rear, and can only be used for its intended purpose, that is, outside of combat operations .. since the AKS-74 caliber 5.45 .. sews a motorcycle from side to side .. it is personally checked .. And yet a question, but what has changed greatly then PGshka .. wink ? Yes, in principle, nothing ..

        AKS-74 can penetrate 14 mm of steel, but not 14 mm of armored steel. And why, then, a BMP with 16 mm of armor is suitable for the front edge and MTLB with the 14th is not?

    Work on the modernization of MT-LB was carried out in Kurgan 15 years ago. The ROC was completely completed and accepted by the customer. The modernization included the installation of a more powerful engine, the use of a continuously variable turning mechanism, shock absorbers of increased efficiency, tracks with RMSh, etc. In general, in terms of the MT-LBM chassis, the technical level approached the BMP-2 without losing their advantages - passability, ease of use, reliability. At the same time, as with any modernization, the weight increased, for which, in order to maintain the supply of melt, volumetric wings like BMP-2 volumetric wings were introduced into the machine. But the MO slept for 15 years, but thank God finally woke up.
