Also in the design used spare parts from off-road versions of the pickup versions ZR2 and ZR2 Bison. An 2.8-liter diesel engine with 186 liter capacity is installed on the car. from. with a six-band automatic. The declared speed on the highway is 160 km / h, off-road speed is 100 km / h.

        These machines are needed for transporting MTR units from the landing zone to the database zone, ATTENTION! when the landing zone is specially distant from the database zone due to the unmasking effect of the VTA operation. Basically, such armored vehicles are used in conjunction with helicopters and tiltrotoplanes and they are facilitated in order to fit into the weight restrictions of the VTA with the VTOL (VTOL).

        ps In my opinion, firstly, the car is already bad because it cannot swim, and secondly, instead of creating an under-BBM for BTA, it is better to create a BTA for BBM, and sacrifice fuel consumption and the cost of servicing the BTA.
        pps Although such BBMs are good for export to countries where there are many weak BTAs.

        Quick draping is the fate of special forces. In a direct collision, any infantry will crush him - there are more of her and she is better armed.

          On UAZs in Afghanistan, special forces just went. Without doors.
          When the shelling started, it was possible to jump out faster.
          Quickly jumped out - survived, at least. hi
          And we have built BORZ. And which is better? MB pickup from Niva?

        And what is convenient to do on the "masterpiece" of the Chechen car industry?
        The Russian Guard has purchased combat buggies from the Chechen Special Forces University for 18 million rubles

        Each machine cost the guardsmen 800 thousand rubles more than originally planned

        each Chechen all-terrain vehicle cost the federal service 2,2 million rubles, although in 2017, the creators of the buggy said that it would cost 1,5 million rubles.

        And who is going to fight with Russia at all?
        Think about it, for all the hysteria "Russians are coming", there is not a single worthwhile Western film about the global war with Russia with a happy end for the Americans. Because no screenwriter will come up with such a thing, and the Americans will not like a movie where half of America is a nuclear desert.
        Remember CrimeaOur. It was precisely the creation of such political conditions and such a scenario that they were going to crank out with Russia under Bora.
        But then something went wrong. But attempts to create such conditions do not stop.

            Well, in Marauder, the situation is very similar to the Maidan Ukraine and Crimea. With its own nuances. When svidomye screaming, yes to hell with him with the Crimea, right now we will lose Kharkov ..

            But the PMSM situation of BP on Berkem is still relevant for Russia and too much rests on one person who does not want to repeat the fate of Slobodan Milosevic.

      All this was invented long before and independently of some Chechens. Look from what year the buggies have been in service with the American "marines". Functionally for other tasks, but the design is still the same: motor, frame, wheels and no protection at all. So let Chechnya rest on the sidelines, they themselves tore off on the move.

        In this case, the analog machines use walls and a roof made of transparent reinforced polyethylene, or other similar but durable and non-combustible materials.

    All have 5 point belts (opening time - 0,5 sec, which is critical). In the case of unfastened belts, an assault landing in the cockpit without helmets has the option of getting a brain substitute shaken by impact on an arc, while an assault landing in the back has an unplanned landing.

    It seems to me that the idea of ​​this car is vicious. transporting 9 special forces in one transport and not armored car makes it "the dream of a grenade launcher, machine gunner and a simple sniper." To transport 9 soldiers in unarmored space is the height of recklessness. Here on our Chechen greyhound car (Chaborza) there is space for only 2 riders ... And rightly so, because makes this target of little value for the use of expensive ammunition. And this affects the survivability of such a vehicle.

      The idea of ​​this car stems from the experience of many modern conflicts and the military satisfies.
      Did you shoot from a grenade launcher? And from a sniper? You still have to get into a maneuverable speed target and this is a task for an experienced machine gunner. And Chabors is six-seater. 2-seater it is to ATVs.

    Lightweight design, more fuel, suitable for long-distance raids. They can act independently, as well as in a group with Strikers. And there are guns, ATGMs, mortars and UAVs. They can work for any purpose.
