To ensure combat duty of mobile soil missile systems in the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, a wide range of different equipment is used. One of the samples of this kind is the combat anti-sabotage vehicle (BPDM) 15TS56M Typhoon-M, designed to escort and protect PGRK on patrol routes. Reportedly, more than 30 units of such equipment and dozens of simulators for crew training have already been delivered.

First shipments


BPDM 15TS56M Typhoon-M was developed by order of the Strategic Missile Forces in the framework of cooperation between Strela and the Military-Industrial Company. Development work started in 2007 and ended in 2012. Soon, mass production began at a slow pace, and the first samples were handed over to the customer.

In August 2013, the Ministry of Defense announced the start of service of the first production Typhoon-M. The car was handed over to the Serpukhov branch of the Academy of the Strategic Missile Forces named after Peter the Great. The Academy has begun training crews for future BDMs. Then it was reported that by the end of the year one of the formations of the missile forces would receive new equipment.

Fulfillment of this order started on time and ended in 2014. The 54th Guards Missile Division (Ivanovo Region) became the first combatant operator of the Typhoon-M, which are armed with Topol-M and Yars missile systems.

According to the plans of that time, the BPDM 15TS56M should have been delivered to all formations operating PGRK. This fact determined the required amount of equipment and its role in the troops. Further reports have shown that the plans are being successfully implemented.

Score for dozens


Strela and VPK continue the construction and supply of Typhoons-M so far. Each year, the customer receives significant quantities of such equipment, due to which re-equipment of the Strategic Missile Forces security units is carried out. Already in the first years of mass production, it was possible to reach a significant pace and bring the technology score to tens.

So, in 2016, the Strategic Missile Forces received 14 anti-sabotage vehicles. In the next 2017, they acquired 12 units. In parallel, the production and delivery of training complexes for the training of crews was carried out. In 2016, the troops received 10 complexes. Plans of that time included the purchase of another 20 simulators until 2020 inclusive.

A few days ago, the Strategic Missile Forces information support group announced relevant information on the Typhoon-M BPDM fleet and plans for the near future. It is indicated that over the past five years, troops have received more than 30 anti-sabotage vehicles. Until the end of this year, another 5 units are expected to be delivered. In 2021, new revenues will continue, but the volumes of plans and orders are not specified. Also, the official message mentions the supply of simulators, but without specifying specific numbers.

Today and tomorrow


From the available data it follows that in 2020-21. the total number of 15DM56M BPDM in RVSN units will reach the level of 35-40 units. Also, the implementation of old plans for the supply of 20 simulators by 2020 is being completed. Their number will reach 30 units. It can be assumed that the production of BDMs and auxiliary systems will not stop there.

The aim of the current serial production of "Typhoons-M" is the complete re-equipment of anti-sabotage units of the Strategic Missile Forces. Each of the 12 missile divisions has a separate guard and reconnaissance battalion (OBOR). Half of the divisions operate PGRK, which makes special demands on equipping its OBOR. Such parts require a number of samples of a special kind, including combat anti-sabotage vehicles.

The supply of 35-40 BPDM type 15TS56M will allow retrofitting at least most of the OBOR divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces. Further production of such equipment will ensure a complete transition to it, and will also create certain reserves. Mass production of training complexes, in turn, will provide high-quality training of crews from all battalions.

For reconnaissance and battle


BPM "Typhoon-M" is intended to escort PGRK on patrol routes and starting positions; such a technique is capable of monitoring the terrain and searching for threats, responding to them in the necessary way. As the name of the technique implies, its main task is to counter enemy sabotage groups.

15TS56M is made on the basis of the BTR-82 serial armored personnel carrier and retains its main elements - the hull, powerplant, chassis, etc. Inside and outside the hull, new units are mounted that provide the solution to the tasks of reconnaissance and destruction of the enemy, communications and control, etc.

Instead of a standard tower on the roof of the hull, a remote-controlled turret installation 6S21 of the Central Research Institute "Petrel" is mounted. It is equipped with a PKTM machine gun and optoelectronic devices for working in the light and dark.

Behind the installation on the roof of the hull is placed a lifting mast with a set of reconnaissance and surveillance tools. The machine has a compact radar and optoelectronic equipment. A circular view is provided with the discovery of equipment at distances of up to 10 km, people - up to 5 km. For reconnaissance at long ranges, the UAV Eleron-3SV is used. In the data transfer mode to the operator’s console, it can work at a distance of up to 25 km.

The on-board equipment complex includes an electronic warfare system. The jamming station is designed to suppress the radio control channels of explosive devices used by the enemy.

On-board electronics allows you to process data from reconnaissance equipment and from a turret with the subsequent issuance of information. The crew of the Typhoon-M maintains constant contact with the command post and other vehicles on the route and can respond to any threats in a timely manner.

The work of the BFM "Typhoon-M" is managed by a crew of three. The airborne squad accommodates up to six fighters with weapons.

The training complex for BPDM 15TS56M provides training for all crew members to solve all arising problems and to work in any possible conditions. Imitation of any sections of patrol routes and imitation of any tactical situation is possible.

Strategic Rocket Forces against ambushes


The Russian Strategic Rocket Forces have organized regular PGRK duty on patrol routes and at launching positions. Complexes in motion or in parking lots can become the target for enemy sabotage groups, which forces them to take measures - to conduct reconnaissance of routes, search for dangerous objects and constantly prepare for a possible attack.

To solve such problems, the Strategic Missile Forces have a whole range of tools. PGRK are accompanied by arrows on armored personnel carriers, anti-sabotage vehicles "Typhoon-M", remote clearance vehicles "Foliage", etc. Having such a material part, the security unit can monitor the situation within a radius of several kilometers, identify potentially dangerous objects, and then take the necessary measures.

In such a system, the Typhoon-M BDM is a key element that determines the ability of units to identify hazards and risks. The number of such equipment in the troops is gradually increasing, and with it the security of patrolling the PGRK is also growing, which has a positive effect on the combat effectiveness of the missile forces as a whole.

    I, of course, have never been a rocket scientist, but "I am plagued by vague doubts" ...
    1. Every more or less significant commander needs his own vehicles made for him. Hundreds of millions of rubles for research and development projects, including training facilities. Then the hellish price of such piece machines in small-scale production. Universality does not come from the word "absolutely". And for the enterprises I am glad: first to grab R&D, then R&D, then a series ...
    2. What tasks does this machine perform? Find saboteurs and report them? Fight with them will still not be able to, because the armored personnel carrier, first of all, is a l / s delivery vehicle. I think the saboteurs will find her before she has theirs, and the cardboard armor will not protect the crew. The maximum they can do is send a message to the command post: "Volga, Volga, I am Donets, I see a tank and we p ... c!"
    4. "Tiger" with a machine gun does not fit?
    3. Crew - driver, commander, gunner-operator. Is the UAV operator not part of the crew? By the way, does anyone know if Aileron flies well between trees?
    4. Judging by the photo, the means of communication both were and have remained museum. Nothing like the American EPLRS as it was and never is.

      hi

      Also not a strategist, but let's discuss.

      1. What is universality for? The equipment for the Strategic Missile Forces is specific and is needed only by them, and specifically discussed is needed to accompany the PGRK and control routes, starting positions, and basing places. And only, the army team does not need it.
      2. The tank? On the route of the PGRK? The RDG will be hard to get through with heavy weapons without opening, and even the armor is from the category of fiction. And having discovered a reconnaissance group, it will fulfill its task (the old Soviet PSNR-5 detects a moving person without equipment at a distance of 4 km.).
      4. The tiger does not swim and all the equipment installed on the BDM - you can’t place it on it.
      3. Great question! I don’t understand either, the operator’s place is located separately, the drone should always be in the air, fly and fly, and watch, without breaking green. And the commander and gunner-operator must do other things.
      I do not understand.

      In general, if you look at the year of creation and start of supply (2012-2014) - everything is logical. A complex was needed here and now, without abstract "the best and having no analogues, but tomorrow." At that time, new platforms were just running around, and, as time has shown, they did not quickly appear. We took the spent building and stuffed it with what we needed.
      My opinion: a good temporary solution, because without it it would be many times worse than with him.

I think saboteurs will find her earlier than she does them, and cardboard armor will not protect the crew.

      The question is at what distance from the protected object of the adversary to detect. This unit is not in itself standing - it is usually in the trench and in front of it there are several types of TSS included in its kit. Then a simple chain: detection - all-round defense-mobile reserve in the direction of the DRG + support from the control room. And yes, Aileron does not need to fly between the trees for reasons we will not talk about here.

    I propose to replace the BPDM - BMPT "Terminator". I explain: we put all the electronics for reconnaissance on the BMPT Terminator, leave all the weapons (except for two course AGSs, move them to the turret, replace the "kums" on ATGMs with thermobaric warheads). The landing is not needed - you need to burn out the "ambush site" with fire good

          Welcome.
          hi
          The main task of the machine and the troops in it (which are more scouts and an inspection team) is not to cover the PRGK or "burn out the ambush" with the breasts, but to take the PGRK out of the danger zones, because it only needs a couple of bullets from a large-caliber sniper rifle ..
          The main task is to detect the RDG and take the PGRK to another route after spending it a few kilometers from the ambush. Destruction and battle is an extreme case, work on the verge of a foul.
          And the soldiers are used for walking reconnaissance, searches of suspicious persons and objects, an exhibition of secrets in suspicious places, installation of signaling, detention of suspects, and of course in case of fire contact, if the previous actions did not help.
          My opinion is that firepower is secondary — more means are needed for detection and reconnaissance.
          By the way, they worked ahead of schedule: Typhoon-M has the ability to detect drones

            Dear orkraiber (I), I can only assume that all of the above is already being done. New machine BPDM Typhoon-M based on Btr-82 "shifting $" into the "desired pocket". This is who seriously believes that on the patrol route of Yars or Poplar, "accidental mushroom pickers" or "a car that has turned in the wrong direction" can get lost ... It can be compared with the movement of a "first person" from the Kremlin to a "nearby dacha". My guess 99,9% of the time "Yars" and "Poplar" are in the "garage".

    Versatility to lower prices. The Strategic Missile Forces technique is specific, and the security tasks are universal. At least guard the PGRK, even the motorized rifle battalion on the march. By the way, aren't there any more similar guard vehicles in any troops? Although, I would not be surprised if it turns out that no ... winked

    Yes, the tiger does not swim. Poplar seems to be too ... wink You can place such a radar on the Tiger. And a machine gun too. Here the landing will not fit.

      hi
      At least guard the PGRK, even the motorized rifle battalion on the march

      Not certainly in that way. The motorized rifle battalion is most likely on the march near the front line, and it is necessary to cover it more from air strikes. The fact that he will be fired at by the RDG on the march will not destroy him and will not reduce his combat readiness to 0. From them, lateral protection will help if the instructions are followed.
      But just one person with a large-caliber sniper rifle, undetected on time, is able to disable PGRK. For good. Therefore, such a machine is excessive for the army, and even insufficient for strategists (IMHO).


      Yes, the tiger does not swim. Poplar, it seems, too ... wink radar such a Tiger can be placed. And a machine gun too. Here the landing will not fit.


      It floats - a river runs past the route, for example, and 1 km to it, which means there is a threat from the SWR. Security is obliged to control the other side, and for this should be able to cross. And about the sizes: the landing is necessary. It’s not even a landing, but long arms: for walking reconnaissance, searching for suspicious persons and objects, displaying secrets in suspicious places, installing signals, detaining suspects, and of course in case of fire contact, if the previous actions did not help.

Otherwise, the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy will order development for himself, air defense - for himself, someone else - for himself. As a result, the state will pay several times for the development of the same vehicle with minor differences. Interspecies (intergeneric) interaction is somehow not welcome here ...

          The complex itself includes units designed, including for protection and defense, both on the march and in field positions. The armament includes a machine-gun turret with a PKT (with night-vision devices, a searchlight). For protection at field positions, there is a set of technical security equipment.

            In general, such a unit has been needed for a long time. On Pioneers, BRDMs drove, on Topols, BTR-70, later MTLB. And here, judging by the 15TS56M index, - (15) is purely the Strategic Missile Forces thing.

Photo of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation / mil.ru, it is completely incomprehensible how an anti-sabotage vehicle can protect even from a homeless person lying in the bushes by the road (we are silent about saboteurs), for example ... for example, throw a crowbar or a board with nails and make a hole in the plastic body of the rocket

    The supply of 35-40 BPDM type 15TS56M will allow retrofitting at least most of the OBOR divisions of the Strategic Missile Forces.

    Until recently, OBORIs were not particularly equipped with them - everything went to missile regiments. Something has changed?
