Creation of gabions by the engineering forces of the RF Armed Forces

Protecting military installations from enemy attacks is an essential component of overall combat success. In order to have an advantage, it is necessary to carefully approach the creation of fortifications capable of protecting both personnel and military equipment. The personnel of the Russian air base in Syrian Khmeimim also solves such problems.


Creation of gabions by the engineering forces of the RF Armed Forces


The military attaches particular importance to the protection of funds aviation from attacks using drones. As you know, the militants have repeatedly tried to strike at the base of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the province of Latakia. To reduce risks, semi-hangars were created in which the Su-30 and Su-35 fighters were deployed. The construction of shelters for helicopters continues at Khmeimim.

The program "Military Acceptance" at the Zvezda shopping center will talk about what options for fortifications are used in the Russian armed forces. One such option from military engineers is the so-called gabions. Translated from French - "big cage." They allow protection against bullets and fragments.

Using special equipment, such gabions about 70 m long are created by military personnel of engineering troops in about a minute or two. A military vehicle unfolds the frame, and then heavy equipment fills the cavities with suitable soil. It the width of the defensive fortifications ultimately depends on the level of security.

With the help of gabions, a defense system for a military facility, including observation towers, was created.

    Oh, these technologies!
    In principle, the norms, if it provides, then it is necessary.
    It happened ... fighter + trench tool and dig, from here until the evening!

      so nobody canceled the digging standard of the trench (a record of 1,5 hours under the tank, by the crew and the engine compartment wink wink

      You're right! Everything new is well forgotten (and maybe not forgotten) old!

    Depending on what it is full of, it may be nice to hold an RPG. Not just bullets and splinters.

      This is the time for the frame to be drawn without taking into account the preparation of the frame or backfilling of the soil. In short, the duration of one of the episodes.

      But in general, it was the invention of the bicycle

        All is correct. This is only the time of one of the technological stages, and not the whole gabion. The golem net does not bear protection, therefore it is impossible to talk about creating a gabion in one or two minutes.

      And rightly so, for the norm is 57,6 seconds.

        Seriously? And if in 57.7 seconds - the norm is not fulfilled?)

      The host, as always, lives in his own world ... in two or three minutes you can stretch the “cage” and set it on the ground.

    And if the soil is moistened and rammed, then the protection should be stronger in theory.

    Well done, well thought up. Who at least once met the standard for digging, will understand the value of this invention.

    The mesh must be imported, but they could be for old people and children
