At the 9-th International Exhibition of Armament and Military Equipment "MILEX - 2019" held in Minsk for the first time, Belarus presented the prototype MRAP-class Defender armored vehicle. This is reported by the blog bmpd.


Belarus for the first time introduced a new armored car "Defender"


The armored car was created by JSC "140-th Repair Plant", known for its upgrades to various armored vehicles. The Defender was created for special forces units, transporting personnel, using them as a platform for reconnaissance, communications and command staff.

The wheel formula of the armored car - 6X6, the machine is made on the chassis of the MAZ-631708. Full weight - 19,800 kg. The installed YMZ-7511 engine with an 400 horsepower (294 kW) with a gearbox - the YMZ-239 allows you to reach speeds up to 90 km / h.

The capacity of the armored vehicle is 14 people, including two crew members stationed in the cabin. The landing is placed in an armored module, which is accessed via a rear ramp. The declared glass protection class is 5 (SVD-AKM 7,62-mm cartridge 57-H-231 10 meters), the body of the armored vehicle is 4 (AK-74 5,45-mm cartridge 7Н10 5-10 meters).

Judging by the class of MRAP, "Defender" should have mine protection, but this is not yet known. There is also no data on the possible armament of an armored car, although it can be assumed that the designers provided for the installation of some kind of combat modules or other weapons.

Since the armored car is shown for the first time, there is very little data on it, except for those that are already presented.

    The wheel formula of the armored car is 6X6, the car is made on the MAZ-631708 chassis. Gross weight - 19,800 kg.

    Fuck it! Even higher than the airborne 18 tons (and heavier than the self-propelled gun-shooting-light tank "Spruta-SD", by the way).
    Well cast iron rolled.

      But it's cheap. Could, of course, use luminous armor, as on "Octopus" ... By the way, his BC weighs just these same one and a half tons.

      Here it is necessary to compare with analogues. For example, with a 20-ton Buffalo

        Countries that know how to work with aluminum armor and have alloy recipes even less than aircraft engine manufacturers. Well, the price .....

            Not really. The manufacturing technology of light armor and welding of aluminum hulls, and subsequent stress release is extremely difficult technologically

        combined armor made of ceramics and steel - very cheap? ..

      I don't think they are planning it "airborne assault". and a large mass (of course, within reason) will be a plus for this MRAP. the main thing is not to let go far into deep mud smile

      The Russian Typhoon (KamAZ) is even heavier - 21 tons. True, the level of protection is declared higher - 3b according to STANAG 4569 (vkusorugovaya from armor-piercing 7,62 mm x 51 mm)
      Belarusians got a certain analogue of Ural-VV

    Cars MRAP, are made by all and sundry. The Papuans will soon make a similar one out of bamboo and palm leaves. Nothing original. But the Cayman armored car, of the same plant, is an interesting specimen.

      it is difficult to originalize (and sometimes even to the detriment) when the same requirements are imposed on machines. Only protection classes vary.

      Cayman has never been a MREP. BRDM in Belarusian

    The most important thing is the correct drive - not "Punisher" (like some people) - but "Defender"
    What do you call a boat ...

      The punisher is a machine for assaulting and punching the gate so it is consistent))

    I wanted to add a little about the ergonomics of the car. At the back is a fairly wide ramp with a convenient step (visible in the last photo in the article). All steps, steps, etc. have ribbing to slip and break apart was as difficult as possible. Handrails and handles are large, solid - it will be difficult to tear off. smile Spacious inside, the landing is located along the sides facing each other.
    Well, a couple of pictures:

    Side view, the aft ramp is open (although it didn’t really get into the frame)

    On the left is Cayman (about the size of the BRDM) and against the backdrop of the Defender, he does not even seem very big ...
