Ukraine adopts the BTR-4 export model

24
The BTR-4E, created by Kharkov designers from the KMDB named after A.Morozov, has been officially adopted by the Ukrainian army since 24.07.2012. The order on the adoption of military equipment signed by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine D.Salamatin.

Today, however, in Ukraine there are only two experienced vehicles BTR-4. It is assumed that a small batch of BTR-4 in the number of 10 units by the end of the year will go to the 13-th separate air-mobile battalion, which is part of the air-mobile troops, located in the city of Zhytomyr.

Ukraine adopts the BTR-4 export model


The adoption of the BTR-4 export model (exactly the same model was delivered to Iraq under the contract signed in 2010) for the armament of the Ukrainian army leads to disappointing conclusions. The BTR-4 lacks the strength or the means, because, in fact, the BTR-4 was created with Iraqi money. The armored transporter is taken up with identified deficiencies, which are very well known in the Ministry of Defense - insufficient mine protection. Another option is a pre-election gesture, and the armored personnel carriers are awaiting the fate of the “Strongholds”, which, incidentally, were also ten units.



I am glad, of course, that the new equipment still goes to the army of Ukraine. The BTR-4E is equipped with a 3TD diesel engine. Of the weapons, we note the combat module BM-7M "Parus". It is expected soon to be adopted by the next modification of the BTR-4 - BTR-4M. He will receive enhanced protection and the German engine "Deutz".

Hoping for an optimistic future BTR-4 gives an agreement on the production of armored personnel carriers, concluded between Ukraine and Kazakhstan. The main armament of Ukrainian-made armored personnel carriers:
- automatic 30 mm gun 3ТМ-1, created at the Kamenetz-Podolsk plant of fine mechanics;
- ATGM created by the Kiev Luch Design Bureau;
- grenade launcher KBA-117, created in KB "Artillery armament";
- a machine gun created at the Mayak plant in Kiev.

Device and design BTR-4

Layout armored transporter:
- management department - performed in the forward part of the hull;
- MTO - performed in the middle part of the body;
- fighting compartment - made in the aft hull;
- troop compartment - made in the aft hull;
The location of the combat compartment and the troop compartment allowed to create a whole family of vehicles without changes in the layout, logistics and chassis. Capacity - 10 man, of which 3 man - the crew of the car: the commander of the car, the gunner and the driver-mechanic, 7 man - infantry.

On the basis of the BTR-4 created the following modifications:
- the base model - BTR-4;
- commander machine - BTR-4K;
- command and staff vehicle - BTR-4KSH;
- evacuation sanitary armored vehicle - BSEM-4K;
- reconnaissance vehicle - BRM-4K;
- evacuation repair machine - BREM-4;
- fire support vehicle - MOP-4K;
- export model BTR-4E;
- export model BTR-4K - BTR-4KE;
- export model BTR-4KSH - BTR-4KSHE;
- export model BSEM-4K - BSEM-4Е;
- export model BREM-4 - BREM-4.

BTR-4 can be armed with the following combat modules:
- BM "Thunder" consists of one automatic 30 mm gun, one 7.62 mm machine gun, one automatic grenade launcher and anti-tank missile complex "Barrier";



- BM "Squall" consists of one automatic 30 mm gun, one 7.62 mm machine gun, one 30 mm automatic grenade launcher and anti-tank missile system "Barrier" (or 2-4 anti-tank rocket launchers);
- BM "BAU-23" consists of two automatic 23 mm guns and a machine gun 7.62 mm;



- BM “Parus” (BM-7) - consists of one 30 mm KBA-1 cannon, one automatic 30 mm grenade launcher, one 7.62 mm machine gun and Barrier ATGM

Key Features:
- weight 21.9 tons;
- wheel formula - 8X8;
- release - from 2008 year;
- length - 7.6 meter;
- width - 2.9 meters;
- height - 2.8 meters;

    It would be sad to read if not for one "BUT". BTR-4 "LADYA", adopted at the time of Yushchenko. in January 2010. The press simply did not notice it because of the elections and the hero of Shukhevych. The Sail module was not included there. it was left for the BTR-4 Bucephalus. And right now, the export was flooded, well, for better PR, he was also accepted for abuse. Yes, and the Ministry of Defense made an order to Kharkov at the end of that year. How could they order a pre-production car?

      In late January 2010, as reported by FLOT2017, the new BTR-4 Rook armored personnel carrier, undergoing preliminary tests at the Morozov Kharkov Engineering Design Bureau, received official approval from the Ukrainian military. In particular, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine issued a verdict that the new armored personnel carrier fully meets the requirements of regulatory documents on the metrological support of weapons and military equipment. This conclusion was sent for approval to the Central Administration of Metrology and Standardization of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      Right now, export was flooded, and for the best public relations, it was also taken to the forefront.

      Perhaps they failed the contract and the remaining ones will have to be left to ourselves ...

      The most interesting thing is why on the ZSU website in the news about the adoption of the service they posted pictures of the BTR-4 with the thunder module? The enemy is confused or something ...

        "Most likely, the export vehicle will be delivered to the troops. Nobody will make the Thunder modules and the new FCS for 10 vehicles. The wrong series. And the German engine will be stuck in. Although our military wants the omnivorous 3TD-3. Why would the troops only need a 17-ton colossus? Dozor-B is needed. I hope after the "Slavic Commonwealth of 2012" it will come to the minds of the generals that the LBA "Dozor" is also needed like the "Tiger" in the Russian Airborne Forces.

              95th brigade - an airmobile, and not an amphibious assault force there now. So the delivery destination is correct. No one is going to drop the BTR-80 from the parachute.

                I’ll tell you a secret, until August 2, our airmobile troops will be named Airborne! And if they want to replace the 80-ku, then probably this is not right. For marines and landing is better than the BTR-3. He swims perfectly and maneuverable on earth than 4. They don’t dump it - centering is not needed there, but the rear-engine arrangement is just a plus here.

                  To rename this, of course, is our national sport, but in fact we only have one paratrooper brigade (like 79, in the Dnipropetrovsk region), the rest are airmobile (light), so it’s unlikely that anything will change in essence. Moreover, as you know, there is either no money or very little money. Yes, and we do not need just paratroopers more than a brigade. Well, in the war with which enemy will we be able to land a brigade in its rear? Even a regiment would be enough for us ... And how in the Russian Federation we will use paratroopers as ordinary infantry.

                        Modernization of the BTR-70. It consists in the installation of a multi-fuel diesel engine, side hatches like the 80s, FCS and the module. The Ukrainian army orders an armored personnel carrier with a conventional turret, because the modules violate the vehicle’s buoyancy. A primitive module with a 23 mm ATGM and UAG-40 - submachine gun is under development. to mount it instead of a tower.

          When a normal armored personnel carrier is swimming, then usually the flap that is lifting out of the water sticks out so that there are no waves and it’s much higher, but judging by the breakers it’s swimming aft, but it’s either rebooted (which is 99% excluded) or the commander is already drowning (captain) crew prepares last (according to maritime tradition) to leave the ship winked
          It remains to be assumed that, happy with the commissioning of the Zaporozhye submarine AFU, the engineers decided to increase the underwater means laughing

                    Didn't find a video of the shooting. Yes, and where would he shoot there at the Kiev reservoir, near the boat station. Why is it so low? But whoever gets there. And these "ears on the sides are water cannons, which allows him to confidently" crawl "on the water, even with additional armor. Here is a problem with the exit to the shore. Therefore, my vote in favor of the BTR-3 for the marines.
                    And not only BTR-4 are corrected from above. In a combat situation, it will go on periscopes and on duplicated sights on the tower

    Last Friday-Sunday I saw seven BTR-4Es on the E-95 highway near the Desna tank range No. 126. Cars with unusual spots of modern camouflage "digital" and very amusing new turrets make a much stronger impression than the above photos. It is a pity that I did not have time to use the camera while driving.
    In the news of the Chernihiv region, a phrase flashed about the delivery of these vehicles to the Royal Thai Army.

            And Puma, by the way, is a very decent example of her class, but on her armor and the Kharkiv citizen to grow and grow.
