Arquus Scarabee - hybrid armored car

52
France is famous for its school of wheeled armored vehicles. Before the start of World War II, successful examples of wheeled cannon armored vehicles were created in the country, after the conflict ended, work in this direction continued and led to the creation of unique combat vehicles, characterized by good tactical and technical characteristics. In France, not only heavy wheeled armored vehicles with cannon armament were developed, but also light models, an example of which are the Panhard VBL armored vehicles. In the near future, they will be replaced by a new innovative armored vehicles with a hybrid power plant - the Arquus Scarabee armored car.



Armored Car Arquus Scarabee


The manufacturer of the new armored car for the French army is Arquus. This is a new brand of the company with many years history Renault Trucks Defense. The company name changed only in the 2018 year. It is under this brand that French military products of the Acmat and Panhard brands are produced today. The new Arquus brand was formed by combining two Latin words: arma (weapon) and equus (horse), thus Arquus symbolizes the “war horse”. Given that the company is developing military wheeled vehicles and wheeled armored vehicles, the name is quite relevant. At the same time, Arquus remains one of the main partners of the French armed forces with more than 100-year history and experience in creating wheeled military equipment.

"Scarab" and its prospects in the market


The new Arquus armored car, which is offered by the French military as well as for export, received its own name Scarabee. At the same time, the military did not rush to buy an armored car developed by French designers. It is assumed that in the French army the novelty will be able to replace light armored vehicles of the Panhard VBL family no earlier than 2025 of the year. This has already been officially announced, but over the next six years, much can change. It is worth noting that the Panhard VBL armored vehicles with the 4x4 wheel formula were developed by the French company Panhard General Defense in the middle of the 1980's. The car turned out to be quite successful, in all more than 2300 units were produced, of which approximately 1500 were in service with the French army, the rest went for export.

It is known that the client, configured to receive new Arquus armored vehicles, is still one. At the same time, the company is working to find for its new products and foreign customers. There is a possibility that even before the start of deliveries to the French armed forces, the hybrid armored car will go to some other country. For the first time in public, a new French armored car was demonstrated in June 2018 of the year. The debut took place at the international defense exhibition Eurosatory 2018. At the exhibition, Arquus presented for the first time the data on the new development by presenting the light wheeled armored car Arquus Scarabee with the wheel formula 4x4. Then it became known that the new armored vehicle has already entered the stage of factory tests, and a prototype has also been built.


Armored car Panhard VBL


Since the debut of the new combat vehicle took place only last year, it is difficult to seriously discuss the export potential of the new product. But given the number of innovative solutions implemented by designers in the armored car, the relatively low cost of such armored vehicles and the rich French experience in creating armored vehicles, it can be assumed that the car will find its buyer outside of France. Especially, taking into account the history of French wheeled vehicles, which have been successfully exported to other countries. An armored car can find buyers in the market of Eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and other regions of the world. It is expected that the armored car will be of interest primarily to developing countries.

Technical features of the armored car Arquus Scarabee


A feature of the new items are unique technical innovations, which include a hybrid power plant, as well as the controllability of all four wheels. According to the assurances of the developers, the new light armored car will be able to move sideways, which significantly expands the possibilities of its combat use and increases survivability on the battlefield. According to the creators, the new Arquus Scarabee is designed to overcome even severe off-road conditions and is able to carry heavy loads, solving many military tasks.

But the first and most important feature of the car is a hybrid powerplant, which includes a powerful 300-strong diesel engine and an electric motor with power up to 150 hp. Such an installation not only increases the environmental friendliness of the machine, but also increases the mileage, and if necessary it can also be used to solve specific military tasks. For example, if necessary, the driver can switch to an electric motor, which will make the car almost silent. This mode of operation is perfect for reconnaissance missions. In this mode, the Arquus Scarabee armored vehicles are approaching you only by the noise of the rubber in contact with the road surface.


Armored Car Arquus Scarabee


An important feature of the armored car is that the power plant moved to the stern of the car. And in a traditional place in the front, under the hood, there is a roomy luggage compartment. The use of composite armor and a monocoque-style hull allowed the developers of the armored car to keep in 6,6 tons, according to other sources, the combat weight of the armored car does not exceed 8 tons. It is also known that the load capacity of new items is estimated at approximately 1800 kg. At the same time, the booking class and the security provided to the crew are not yet known.

Arquus Scarabee hull features also include the location of the driver’s seat strictly in the center of the combat vehicle. The driver has at his disposal a three-section windshield, which is located in a "semicircle". Another feature of the new items are sliding, rather than swing doors, as in the vast majority of modern cars. The developers claim that this solution has improved ergonomics and simplifies the process of boarding / disembarking the crew from the car. True, experts note that such a design may have its drawbacks. If the guides are deformed by impact, explosion or any debris, the door may jam. Like its predecessor, the Panhard VBL, the Scarab is designed to carry four people, including the driver. Seats for three fighters are located behind the driver's seat. It is known that the car received a modern digital dashboard and all-round cameras, which allows the driver to always know what is happening around the car.

The armored car is a classic SUV with the wheel formula 4x4. The car received quite large 20-inch tires 365 / 80 R 20 with a developed tread pattern, which facilitate the movement of the car on the road. In addition, a thruster rear suspension is a unique solution. The driver can control not only the front wheels, but also the rear ones. This allows, if necessary, to move sideways, as well as in any way that the driver considers necessary. This decision affects both the maneuverability and survival of the vehicle in battle, as well as cross-country ability, making it possible to overcome even serious off-road conditions.


Arquus Scarabee variant with combat module


French Beetle may get weapons


Obviously, the new light wheeled armored car will be able to perform not only transport functions, transporting soldiers and goods from place to place. The machine can be used for reconnaissance and patrolling the area, escorting columns. For this reason, the Arquus Scarabee armored car can be equipped with various weapons. One of the options for arming an armored car has already been demonstrated at exhibitions.

This provides for the location on the roof of an armored car of a light remote-controlled combat module Hornet 30, equipped with a quick-firing 30-mm automatic gun. The presence of an 30-mm automatic gun equals the fire capabilities of a small wheeled armored vehicle with some infantry fighting vehicles, for example, the most massive BMP-2 in the Russian army. Obviously, if necessary, other options for arming the machine will be presented, including conventional and heavy machine guns, automatic grenade launchers or modern ATGMs at the request of the customer.

        On a straight road without ups and downs, as well as without stopping and "starting off", the hybrid has no advantage. In real life, a hybrid passenger car has a consumption of almost 50% of the same non-hybrid.

            No. We in Galilee (or whatever it is in Arabic) are continuous descents and ascents. While driving to the sea, the battery is charging. When I go uphill, the car eats like no hybrid. The result is savings. About saving in traffic jams generally keep quiet.

        You figure it out with your brains. Your quote: "So with an equal weight of fuel, the diesel will go further."The circus has left? We fill a full tank in both the hybrid and the diesel. In your opinion, the diesel will go further than the hybrid? It turns out the average consumption of the hybrid is MORE than the non-hybrid brother. That's it. I urgently return my hybrid as I was bred and what I see on the dashboard fake. lol

      The advantages of the hybrid are not only in fuel efficiency, which, as they have already correctly said, is obtained only with certain driving modes (braking). The advantage is invisibility - there is no noise on electric traction and there is practically no heat emission. Theoretically, two more advantages are possible:

      - reliability, since there are two engines
      - universality, because in the absence of fuel there is at least some alternative to recharge.

        Not true! Using recovery is one of the ways to save. Moreover, during engine braking, if the engine has more than 1500 rpm, fuel injection stops.
        A hybrid with a drive has the ability to more smoothly change the modes of the energy source (ICE, for example), due to this - to save fuel.

        Depends on the type of transmission. Prius, for example, will not go without ICE.
        In addition, hybrids usually have a very small buffer - this is not an electric vehicle.

              Of course not. Any device that is a vehicle is designed to move people. You specifically expanded the concept from a narrower specialization. Trolling for the sake of. VBL is a light reconnaissance tool. Approximately an analogue of our BRDM. It can not be replaced by a boat in any way. The fact that VBL is floating does not mean that it is directly floating or that it is at least a secondary task. And that means he won’t drown right away and will be able to force some kind of water barrier. That will allow, in some cases, to complete a combat mission or greatly simplify it. Such a light machine is much more mobile, less expensive, more comfortable than larger and heavier tools. BMP is generally a very revealing comparison. The BMP is tracked and cannot even provide close a level of comfort or economy, nor, most importantly, maneuverability.
              Comfort is not in terms of that border guards must ride in limousines with a bar and pool. And this is a decrease in fatigue, and therefore more opportunities for completing a task, and greater efficiency.

    I would not be in a hurry with statements about the rearmament of the French army to these Scarabs.
    Moreover, in the form of statements no earlier than 2025. In fact, these Scarabs are relatives of no less promising Crabs, who also did not particularly go into service.
    Hybrid installation in multi-purpose not large military equipment - FIG knows him. All this talk about noise and the distance of the run is somehow incomprehensible. Well, you need a distance of more fuel, suspend additional tanks. Low noise is good, only on the road will they even notice it, and on rough terrain sneak up on enemy positions on such a Scarab? For what?
    I understand if an additional installation is used to operate some kind of equipment.
    And how maintainability of the whole structure will be, and where in the field they will charge at least some sane number of cars.

        Yes, but which battery for a 150 hp engine? Its volume and weight, well, for at least some sort of sane duration of movement. And how much the generator will charge it. And how much power it will be, while the power take-off will eat its own fuel. And if the power is small, then the charge will be, as I understand it for many hours.
        Is there any real pluses from this design, because the volume and weight will also ride constantly. Isn't it easier to carry an extra tank?

          so in fact here is a "hybrid" not a sequential scheme. A battery of extra-large capacity is not needed, since the wheels can be turned by both engines at once, or each separately. Purely on electric traction, with the internal combustion engine muffled, of course, you won't go far - 10 kilometers from the force.
          Recently, instead of the battery, supercapacitors are putting more and more

            I just read in the article and some commentators about increasing the range due to the use of an electric motor.
            Do not think that I find fault, but I do not understand what an electric motor like a BBM can give. Short-term power increases? Why are they? In the increased range, at least somehow significant - I strongly doubt it. Silent ride - why is it? In open areas, the car will not be detected by sound. And on a very rough - a few hundred meters, and so it will be difficult to determine. You can still take some purely mechanical measures to reduce the volume, if that is so important. Of course, I’m talking about such a car and I don’t know its diesel. But gasoline and a little smaller in size when moving smoothly and with a relatively small stroke, even for several tens of meters, is not audible.

              In a hybrid, both engines run on top of each other. ICE twists the generator and energizes the electric motor. That, in turn, allows the internal combustion engine to work without sharp accelerating loads, in the most favorable conditions. Almost all modern hybrids have a recovery system - when braking or coasting, electric motors begin to spin from the wheels and work like generators, charging the battery. Hence, a little more profitability.
              True, only in the "urban" cycle of movement. When driving at a constant speed over a long distance, it is more economical to turn the diesel engine. There is a choice here - to turn both engines, or each of them separately.

              I think the French are just testing the "military" "hybrid".

              Hybrid installation, gives a wild amount of Newton meters. That is, a huge amount of torque per second at any speed. As an example in the civilian version, Toyota Prius. There are not many horses, but it goes cheerfully. The thrust of the electric motor is almost maximum at any moment. When braking the entire armored car, again, there is a recovery (charging). In principle, the topic is interesting.

                The combat vehicle is not urban, where recovery gives at least something.
                Such a car does not need to ride vigorously, the diesel torque is very good with fairly low revs. On the road, the distribution of torque over the wheels is more important. When overcoming some obstacles - yes, it will even help. But this is all so vague. But the complexity of such an installation, its maintainability, and most importantly the dimensions and weight, they always ride.

    Arquus Scarabee can now be considered as a concept for now. In general, not bad, with its pros and cons.
    Many will come to the hybrid installation soon. In addition to fuel economy, such a power plant has a couple more advantages. The electric motor has a short response time, which should provide excellent overclocking characteristics. You can only move on an electric motor (for the sake of secrecy, out of fuel, damaged diesel)
    All this will have to pay a higher cost.

    All four steered wheels should increase both maneuverability and cross-country ability.

    But the sliding doors, most likely, will be removed, replacing the hinged. Sliding can easily jam (lead the guide, a bullet or a fragment will fall under the guides - and hello, you are walled up), which is unacceptable for a combat vehicle

      In fact, this is easily solved. Need simply released guides. Indeed, there is practically no load on the guides in the closed position; any blow to the door pushes it onto the body.
      And for emergency exit, you can release the door from the rails or the rails with which the door will fall out are not very important.
      By the way, it’s very difficult to jam such a door design as on a Scarab. The guides there are located in rare places, so that they would break, distort, it is necessary to distort the body itself. And with such a brutal impact, there must be an emergency hatch in the roof.
      And jamming can be reduced if you use a more free run on the rollers in the open state, tight only directly in the closed position, and there the door itself covers the guides. Or make prefabricated rollers with the possibility of changing the diameter.

        so that the door slides, there must be guides on the machine body, and you can’t cover them with anything.

          Yes, indeed, just in the photo from the author there they are barely visible and I thought that the main ones on the roof and on the bottom.
          Then release guides or a door from them.

            in principle, yes, there should be a third guide on the roof. The door is heavy.

            an option, of course, but, my deep conviction, on a military car, a sliding door does not bring any benefits. She will not shorten the time for dismounting (and a stopper is also needed to fix it in the rear position so that it does not spontaneously “go” forward and “press down.” It is enough to push the swing door with your foot so that it swings open and stands on the stopper. And that's it, you "fell out" of the car), but has problems requiring non-trivial solutions.

      This is unlikely. No, as a curtsey to all "green", "creative" and "progressive" will develop.
      And if put into service, then a car with an electromechanical transmission. With battery on power as a buffer. And then not the battery but capacitors or MNE

        Yeah, and what electric motors will they feed on? They have not yet learned how to get energy from the air. The cheapest option - you need a generator, and to twist it - a diesel engine. Those. it turns out a classic hybrid

          From the generator. But its presence does not make the car a hybrid. Otherwise, "BelAZs can be written in" hybrids "8))))

          A hybrid car is a complete movement from at least two sources of energy.

            does. Hybrid Vehicle - A Vehicle Using Drive Wheels more than one energy source What we have is an electric generator and ICE. In this case, a hybrid serial circuit is obtained.
            And yes, Belazes also have a hybrid installation.

            The French made a hybrid mixed (series-parallel) circuit.

              Only a generator. And ICE is the drive of this generator and not the drive wheels.
              There is no fur in an electromechanical transmission. communication between ICE and drive wheels. This is the same electric transmission, just between the running electric motor and the wheel there is also fur. gearbox

                Do not confuse the transmission and power source (engine). The electromechanical transmission will remain electromechanical, use at least a generator, at least a battery, at least manually twist it as an energy source for an electric motor.

                    Hybrid vehicles can be built in three ways:
                    1. SequentialI am. ICE twists the generator, which, in turn, is an electric motor. The vehicle moves only on electric traction.
                    2. Parallel. Vehicles built in a parallel circuit are used to transmit torque to the wheels of both the internal combustion engine and the electric motor. The main work is performed by the internal combustion engine, the electric motor is connected when additional power is needed (when starting, accelerating), when braking and decelerating, it works as a generator.
                    3. Series-parallel (mixed). It is a combination of the first two. An additional generator and power divider are added to the parallel circuit. When starting and at low speeds, it moves only on electric traction, the internal combustion engine ensures the operation of the generator (as in a serial circuit). At high speeds, torque is also transmitted to the drive wheels from the internal combustion engine. At increased loads (for example, when climbing uphill), when the generator is not able to provide the required current, the electric motor receives additional power from the battery (parallel circuit).

                  Because the buffer cannot provide car movement due to its relatively small capacity. His task is only to smooth the load on a pair of ICE-generator.

    Affection was caused by the phrase "Such an installation does not just increase the environmental friendliness of the car ..." what a touching concern for the environment, and a vivid example of irrepressible environmentalism, especially when it comes to military equipment ...
