China showed a new demining machine


The Chinese state television company China Central Television (CCTV) has released material on a new PLA armored vehicle designed to clear minefield passages for troops and equipment during landing operations.


The new machine is based on a caterpillar chassis and is equipped with a mine "plow" and a tower with a missile launcher. Beijing television did not disclose details about the new project, only mentioning that the system creates a passage through a minefield "into a tank wide", and also neutralizes landmines and improvised explosive devices laid down along roadsides.

Meanwhile, according to media reports, analysts quickly noticed a similarity between the new Chinese armored vehicles and the American chassis-based mine clearance vehicle tank M1 Abrams called Assault Breacher Vehicle (ABV). The machine has similar specifications.

The material does not indicate where a similar technique can be applied. The United States suggested that the most likely place is the Taiwanese island of Kinmen (Kinmen), which is located directly near mainland China and has had a very fortified coastline since the Cold War.

          chassis there generally Kurganets if that. But not the one now, but the one that used to be. After the MO restarted the project, they either sold the old one to China, or participated in outsourcing and transferred in this way, or brought it to the requirements of the Chinese side.

          Now it is a large family with hundreds of vehicles of various types in the army wink . Most likely already riveted more than the BMP-3 in the Russian army.

            ZBD-04A was developed since 1990, and in operation since 1997, if that, no Kurgan at that time smelled!

            This, of course, is interesting.
            But the question is quite simple, there is no answer.

                The chief designer of the Central Design Bureau about the machine, which became the base, said literally the following.
                "This product is hard to call plagiarism. Obviously, the Chinese took the look and capabilities of our machine as a base."

                He knows better, right?
                Well, otherwise, no direct copying is observed.

                    Well, these are just words again.

                    For a very long time we were convinced that "the Chinese only know how to copy." And now we are losing a lot of money on the fact that they "take away" our contracts. Offering more modern and "advanced" weapons.

                    And the funny thing is that so many continue to think so. Despite the reality.

                      You probably wanted to write a lot cheaper than ours, but not more modern and advanced weapons, and by the way with our licensed turret and BMP-3 cannon ...

                        Our designers say that it’s not a problem for our Tornado to fly 200 km (by the way, 200 km is almost developed) or 300 km, but it’s more important for us to maintain the accuracy of which neither the Chinese nor Belarusians have ...

                        Sorry, but a 30-meter KVO is more likely for howitzers than for MLRS. So they have accuracy ...
                        And missiles similar in accuracy and range to Chinese are just being developed here.

                        We don’t like long-range ones, remember quick-charge like bicaliber 122/220 SR-5. Which they sold to Algeria and Venezuela. We have something similar called "Hurricane-1M" has just appeared. And it exists at the level of prototypes. They already have two completed foreign contracts.

    This is not an ATGM.
    Rather, launchers for something like NURS for remote clearance.

    Something I’m not observing the tower here. request Cutting is available. Swivel platform with launchers - also available. Actually, the tower, as such, is not required there. But in the wheelhouse there is more space for the placement of special equipment. yes

      hello, Sergey soldier
      It seemed to me that not everyone showed on the picture \ climbed.
      Ahead, after all, there is no blade mounted, just it looks like there might be a mine plow. A standard, like, scheme.

            Well, our multifunctional equipment is also being used. Engineering intelligence must be equipped with everything necessary. An interesting point is how all this wealth is transported and where the necessary equipment is hung?

      You're wrong.

      This is the BMP-3 chassis, turned back. Caterpillars from the "Abrams" stupidly do not fit.
