      To sniff at such an RPG)))
      But seriously, it’s very mobile, maneuverable, convenient and, apparently, a simple thing. Yes, and 88 horses - also not sickly! It would be nice to have such in the RF Armed Forces, but more !!!

      There are civilians. The base of the ATV but is slightly reinforced, the engine is slightly larger in cubes than that of the quadric, and the drive is only rear. But they will also somersault. So they can not even be compared with a banal quadros. It’s more like a safari car.

        Cool material, professor, pleased! The mobility of a small unit can increase at times. On its basis are options for carrying various types of light weapons, communications, UAV control.? In addition, it is lightweight, which means it is airborne. Interesting device!

    Cool unit. For alcohol in the neighboring village, it’s the most wandering. And so, something seems to me, the suspension is flimsy, especially at the rear.

    I have already spoken out about fighting vehicles with a half-open body, but I’ll bother: the windshield should always be present on the car, this is where the land drove the second car with a running convoy (and the crew) should go in gas masks, but what about territory similar to ours you eat at the edge of the forest crushing the undergrowth and all branches hit you in the face --- the driver’s exit and the front half-door must always be closed, but the loading platform is intended

    we still have all NIVES registered with military commissariats

      I agree, this is not for our region. In winter you won’t be able to drive through this - you’ll lose your limbs, and in summer even if you don’t ride in a convoy, all the midges will be in your eyes.

      Imagine how your glass will let the bunnies start and sparkle in the sun - weight is the point of riding such a machine will go to ashes! So the lack of glass can be considered the right decision ...

          WELL AS SO

          "Desert Raider" armed with 3 "Negev" machine guns

          The Desert Raider has low noise and thermal signature and can be transported inside the CH-53 helicopter, making it very suitable for special operations. The driver's seat is located in the center, on either side of it are two passenger seats, behind is a cargo platform (two more seats can be installed instead). "Desert Raider" can carry weapons - three machine guns (two - opposite the passenger seats, one - above the driver; in the published photos - 3 "Negev" caliber 5.56 mm). The vehicle was tested in special forces of the IDF and was officially put into service under the name "Tomer", but its arrival is delayed due to the IDF budget cuts. According to Janes, Desert Raider is produced for export, the customer is unknown.

      You ask your dear friend, this is a very necessary thing both for border guards and for quick transfer of infantry in difficult passable areas, even better than a poor horse to go through mountains and swamps. And also these ATVs are used in Canada and in Australia and in the mountains of Aganistan, sometimes this moto-driving vehicle was the only combat vehicle in which you can take out the wounded, bring in ammunition and make silent reconnaissance of the area over long distances. By the way, our paratroopers during exercises in the USA highly noted the mobility and high characteristics of this type of equipment.

      I heard about UAZs, but cornfields? I have a cornfield and I did not put it on the military commissariat.

        about seven years ago I had to run the most to the draft board (there my aunt registered in a greasy magazine) before registering, and now
        everything is automatically taken into account electronically, as well as with the tax one (that is, traffic cops send the data themselves), if I don’t err, then the ural motorcycles with the sidecar are also taken into account

    I completely agree with TIT. !!! Then do not forget that a modern vehicle should protect personnel from bullets and fragments (preferably also from mines). And something else ... these open structures are designed for operation in places with a good climate, and according to our standards, military equipment should work from -50 to +50.

    Normal unit. A tank or armored personnel carrier should protect against bullets and fragments, and such machines should be used as liaison, transport., Medical, for reconnaissance purposes and so on. in non-combat zones. And if they got there, then no armor and bulletproof glass will save them (Coco can I hang it there ???) their advantage is the speed and high density of the crew’s fire.

    A winch for this category of equipment is clearly an overkill; for the self-pulling out two fighters will provide the same effort, the mass is small to help other equipment. At the TPK Luise, the winch was for evacuating the wounded on a stretcher, a pallet at the front edge under fire, the car is high here, it can’t hide in the folds of the terrain.

    But I liked the airless wheel, but it seems to me short-lived and a rush of one membrane will cause a domino effect.

      They were invented in the Michelin office a few years ago. In winter, such a design will not work.

    I like this car. The only tank is too small. For a raid car
    the tank needs a minimum of two more.

    Even Venezuela has a military off-road vehicle of its own design - "Tiuna", and in Russia there is still a UAZ created in the middle of the last century!

    It is a well-known fact: as soon as in any class a technique "grows" out of it in terms of power and weight (due to the continuous growth of requirements), then substitution takes place - a new "light" class appears. As soon as light jeeps turn into hummers, and - voila! - "the jeep is dead, long live the jeep!"

    By the way, here you can recall the ultralight M422 Mighty Might, who was in service with the US Marine Corps before and during the Vietnam War. Funny car, reminiscent of a children's pedal car with an air-cooled engine and an aluminum case. He weighed only 790 kg, but carried 390 kg of cargo - more than an "adult" M151MUTT.

    True, the machine was very expensive and for the Marine Corps was needed because helicopter transportation with a driver and cargo was required, and then Sikorsky H-19 did not take more than 1200 kg. They built them a little more than 1000 pieces, and then there were more lifting helicopters. Accordingly, the high cost of this small car ceased to be justified - in 1962 production was turned off. But in armament, this thing survived to the 70s.

    And here is the South African way: Bae waspdeveloped by BAE Land Systems in 2000 and 2008-2009. produced in the amount of 25 pieces by order of the armed forces of South Africa.
    The car has an unusual layout of the passenger compartment: the second row seats are located across the axis of the car with their backs to each other, and the third row seats - with their backs forward. As a result, the entire crew sits “legs out” and can fire in all directions, and in case of danger, jump out of the car to the ground within literally a second. Well, except for the driver, and sitting next to him ...
    Due to the tiny dimensions of the little car, the arm for the swivel of a heavy machine gun had to be carried out in front of the windshield on a spatial farm. But this machine is only tiny in size - it weighs as much as 2-plus tons due to the reservation of the engine compartment.
