The characteristics of the Kozak-2M1 armored vehicle, put into service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, have been clarified


The information on the adoption of the APU of the armored army vehicle “Kazak-2M1” (in the Ukrainian-language version - “Kozak-2M1”) was confirmed. This armored vehicle is being created at the NPP Praktika factory in Kiev.


After taking the armored car into service with the APU, the manufacturer specified some of the tactical and technical characteristics of this armored car.

It is noted that the protection of “Kozak-2M1” meets the “NATO standards”. In this case, “NATO standards” means STANAG 4569 level 2, which allows the crew to be protected from small arms weapons, as well as level 2 - for mine protection.

The APU spoke about the fact that during the tests, which lasted from 2018, the armored car "showed itself on the good side." So, it is noted that he confirmed his operational characteristics during shelling and bombings. However, the manufacturer does not provide stories about such tests.

The Kozak-2M1 4x4 armored car is equipped with a 5,9 liter engine with a power of 280 hp and has a weight of 14 thousand kg. The engine uses diesel fuel.

All weapons "Kozak-2M1" - machine gun NSV 12,7 mm caliber. It is installed in a protected turret, providing, as claimed, "aimed fire at a distance of up to 2 km."

The armored car is designed for 2 crew members and 6 fighters in the airborne squad.

Meanwhile, in Ukraine, they believe that now a pickup version of this army vehicle is also needed, which will make it possible to use, for example, anti-aircraft installations and automatic grenade launchers.

    The machine does not look bad, let's see that operation in the troops will show and agree that the pickup version will not be superfluous.

      All the time I am tormented by the question - the emphasis on the letter "o" - KOzak or all the same - Kozak 2M1? How to be on the original mov will be? It seems to me - on the first syllable - it sounds more brutal! The name of the car in this case leads to a horror! laughing

                  1. the need for intercooler
                  2. Larger piston loads, lower engine life in general
                  3. the need to use better fuel and lubricants (which is somehow not very good for a military machine)
                  4. Greater complexity and complexity of maintenance and repair (which is also not a plus for a military machine)

                  yes, the turbine allows you to align and reduce the speed at which the internal combustion engine reaches max. moment, but not as much as you paint. At low speeds, the turbine does not work at all (the exhaust gas power is not enough for its promotion). Turbine spinning takes time, a "turbyama" appears (the acceleration dynamics are inferior to that of the aspirated). Because some are perverted, like. for example, on a Leclerc diesel, putting a separate drive on the turbine

                  Therefore, for all its merits, the turbine is not a kind of prodigy without disadvantages, which "adds" power.

                        you know .. then you need to discuss the shortcomings of each engine ICU .. the water pump collapses and the engine boils, the muffler, and even more the catalyst, they strangle the engine and increase consumption, the generator eats up some of the motor energy. The air filter reduces the filling coefficient, and accordingly the power, length and shape the intake manifold is selected for revolutions slightly above average, at the remaining revolutions it also reduces the engine performance characteristics .. camshaft cam shapes are selected for optimal engine revolutions, at revolutions higher or lower, such timing phases are not effective .. And here the turbine .. which makes the filling coefficient 1 or higher at the smallest working speed ... the only unit .. of all those listed by me, which improves the performance of ICEs ... without requiring serious processing of ICEs.

                        no, don't. For there is a comparison of two engines - aspirated and turbocharged, which all of your listed systems have. The emphasis should be on differences. Or have you already forgotten where the discussion started?

                        here you are wrong. Or do you think that it is enough to put a turbine on the aspirated one - and voila? You will get nothing but a characteristic sound, but coolly reduce the engine resource.
                        A turbocharged motor, with a competent approach, requires changes - at least a piston reinforcement and a more serious cooling system (turbocharged motors are more heat-stressed, they can’t even be stopped immediately, you need to let it idle)

                        The resume is such that the turbine has its drawbacks, and is not a free application for increasing power. It's silly to argue with that, don’t you?

                        Yes .. D-245 is obtained from d-240 just by adding a turbine. I had a Zubrenok .. so there from the factory there was a motor with 4 ring pistons .. if you know what I mean ..
                        Yes ... and the dual-fuel injection pump. There was not even a cooler. So that just installing a turbine on an aspirated system gives a significant increase in performance characteristics.
                        News from the fields ..

        Larger liter power allows you to have a more compact engine, but also has its drawbacks. In addition, the UTD is multi-fuel. I doubt that the Iveco turbodiesel boasts the same.

        Well, the fact that the power is lower - and the losses in the wheel mover are lower than in the caterpillar

        there are no mortars of this caliber.
        37 mm, 47 mm, 50 mm, 81 mm, 82 mm, 107 mm, 120 mm, etc.
        1. 60 mm forgotten. It’s being used right now in the Donbass ...
