Turkish "Cobra" could not stand the explosion of the IED

95
Turkish-made lightweight armored car "Cobra" was defenseless in front of an improvised explosive device (IED), laid by terrorists in the African country of Burkina Faso, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.



An explosion of a homemade bomb planted directly into the roadway, threw the vehicle of the national army up and overturned on the roof. After which the vehicle caught fire.



Car damage was fatal. The photo shows that an impressive hole was punched in the bottom of the Cobra.

It is reported that three of the seven soldiers inside were killed, the other four were seriously injured.



These armored cars are not the first time showing the depressing results of their participation in military conflicts. Earlier, during the short-term war in August 2008, the Georgian army lost two cars of this model.

Turkish units that used these armored cars also suffered losses. For example, in the summer of 2016, five Turkish soldiers who participated in an operation against the PKK died as a result of an IED exploded.

Armored car "Cobra" with wheel formula 4х4 created in 1997 year. Its mass exceeds 6 tons. Installed engine power - 190 hp, speed - up to 115 km / h. Reservations - bulletproof. Inside, space is provided for 9 military personnel.

According to Russian experts, today this armored car can be considered obsolete - its design does not have reserves for modernization.

    The mass of IEDs is not specified, nothing surprising since the tanks can’t stand it and then the armored car. There is no reception against scrap.

      It all depends on the size of the scrap. Judging by the damage to the roadway, the explosive device was not too powerful (although a directed nature of the explosion is possible) and such a hole is a bad indicator. Moreover, the vehicle's design (V-shaped bottom and high suspension) positioned it as MRAP!

        The shellless, shallow VCA does not leave a large funnel. According to estimates, a kilogram will pull by three or four. Not the slightest surprise.

          Usually installed 20-30 cm from the surface. I agree, there are 3-4 kg. Not much for a shell. Explosives in various PTMs from 6,5 kg. It's just that this armored car is not designed for such explosions. So it is written: "bulletproof armor". In general, the hat turned out to be not according to Senka

            Of the seven inside servicemen, three died, the remaining four were seriously injured.
            This is a GOOD indicator, considering that the reservation is OPPOINT
            Six tons of weight - this is generally not a machine for the battlefield. It is precisely in the rear of the troops to carry. It's amazing that at least someone survived.

            I was interested in something else. How could a mine be mounted in asphalt? Or is there concrete at all? Although there is a lot of land on the photo, however, the road itself is of excellent quality. No pits, no bumps, no ups, downs, turns.

              This is if there is a copper cone in it, and if it is just an explosive molded in the form of a funnel, then there will be nothing to form a cumulative jet from and there will be just a directed explosion, and it will be possible to push Poroshenko, swollen in the morning, into the "hole".

    Judging by the funnel, the breach in the bottom and the distance this "Cobra" flew off, it looks like a milk can with explosives was laid there, but its explosion and the tank would not have survived.
    Of the seven inside servicemen, three were reportedly killed, the remaining four were seriously injured.

      The detonation went down the center of the bottom, so there is a breach, few would have withstood ... More often, under the wheels, undermining, then less damage, the wheel will tear off and the blast wave will pass along the tangent to the side of the bottom ... It is not entirely correct to blame Cobra with such an explosion. .. And there is no reception against scrap ...

      And ours inside do not drive, everything is on top, on the armor. laughing It is better to get shell shock and perlomo flying from an armored personnel carrier when undermining than to be inside. Judging by the picture, the detonation was in the center of the car, those who were inside were not likely to survive. Usually the blast is in the area of ​​wheelsets. In April 96, during an IRM, an armored personnel carrier blew up. The front right wheel flew off and the right side of the front opened up like a can opener. All are alive, only the strongest shell shock.

      The statement that the modified car holds 15 kg of TNT at 2 meters and 120 at 4 looks somehow dubious. It is even more doubtful that he will be able to protect from an IED made of 203 mm HE or from FAB-250.

    Well, the explosion was evidently directly under the bottom, and not the wheel, so this project did not show maximum protection, although the fact that there are survivors directly at the scene is already good for this, the Turks still have far from high tech

    Installation almost in the middle of the roadway, where it is difficult to disguise, undermining in the most vulnerable place of the car (under the belly between the axles) is the work of a pro.

    I looked at the funnel and the bottom of the car, and for some reason immediately thought of the Abrams' cumulative fragmentation projectile buried at an angle. And such a "toy" is unlikely to survive. This partly explains the fact that there are survivors.

            Distant you are ours, have you read somewhere that "motorcycle league" has mine protection? And what class?
            And the "Cobra" is just positioned as an armored car with protection against a mine explosion both under the wheel and under the belly. If you are not aware, there is a whole range of technologies that simply did not exist when designing MTLB 50-60 years ago. So don't compare.

              As for the MTLB, there is the fault of the near-minded representatives of the junior command staff. The armor of MTLB and the cobra are basically the same. From protection against mines there is only a V-shaped bottom and it is not fully implemented, so they can be compared quite well. It is bought because of the relative cheapness, and not from outstanding mine or ballistic characteristics)))

                And you did not say that the strength and composition of armor change over the years? And the armor, cast 10 years ago, much stronger than the 50-year-old? The composition of her other laughing And by the way, we can assume that the cobra seats are not welded to the floor, and hang on brackets from the ceiling. Very, you know, contributes to the survival of the crew))) And do not confuse the V-shaped bottom when the seats are hung with a flat bottom with seats installed on it.
                And by the way, when MTLB was created, the issue of mine resistance of this artillery tractor never put hi

                    I just repeat, otherwise you, apparently, do not know)))) MTLB was created as a tractor. He must carry cargo in the first place. This is not an armored personnel carrier, not an infantry / landing vehicle, not an armored reconnaissance vehicle. Charge this. For cargo, not for people. Of course, it’s calculated how many people he can carry. If anything, there are similar calculations even for KamAZ dump truck bodies. Indign yourself why this civilian dump truck is not protected from 6kg TNT under the axle laughing Requirements and therefore, designs and materials are different.

    I'm certainly not a great specialist, but it looks like a landmine based on 125mm. The projectile. Well, they love all sorts of abreks shells to remake landmines. The funnel is not large, and the jeep threw very far.

    Good evening, but no one looked at the fighting mass of Cobra? - By the way, 6,3 tons, and now calculate the mass of the charge that could throw it and turn it around? there is not 4-5 kg, but more - so that there remained alive there is still a big plus for this technique.

    It all depends on the size of the scrap. Judging by the damage to the roadway, the explosive device was not too powerful (although a directed nature of the explosion is possible) and such a hole is a bad indicator. MRAP!

    There are 7-10 kg. there was no less, not every tank could stand :)

    You can blow up the tank.
    moreover, judging by the picture, the explosion fell into the most vulnerable place, strictly under the bottom of the bottom.
    if under the wheel there weren’t such consequences, the wheel would be torn off.
    and so, the Turks were not lucky, they drove very unsuccessfully, half a meter to the side, and there would be no such consequences
