The Russian army never came up: about the Italian armored jeep IVECO

As you know, the Russian army currently uses the Russian-made Tiger family of armored vehicles as armored vehicles. But it could happen that instead of the Tigers, the Russian army could use the Italian Iveco M65E19WM 4x4 armored vehicles, better known in Russia as the Lynx. Where did the Italian armored cars appear in our army from and why they never came up for adoption, let's try to answer in this article.


Italian Iveco


The first appearance of Iveco armored vehicles in Russia was in 2009: two light armored vehicles Iveco M65E19WM 4x4, better known as LMV (Light Multirole Vehicle - light multi-purpose vehicle), purchased and imported KAMAZ to Russia at its own expense. A test cycle was called as the import target.

We note that Italian armored cars are unlikely to have appeared in Russia without coordination with the highest military-political circles, and Anatoly Serdyukov, who launched large-scale reforms at that time, was undertaking large-scale reforms: changing the organizational structure of the army and the procurement system, reducing the number of troops, launching the rearmament program and etc. Therefore, shortly after the appearance of IVECO in Russia, reports appeared in the media that the "Italians" would soon be adopted by the Russian army. While tests were carried out on the first two units of the Lynx (Lince - ital. The name of the armored car), in early 2010, KamAZ bought two more armored cars, and at the end of the year the Ministry of Defense purchased as many as 10 IVECOs, "assembled" at KamAZ by screwing on the plate with the inscription "Lynx" on the radiator. The machines were sent for testing.


In the future, the Ministry of Defense signed an agreement with IVECO on the joint assembly of the "Lynxes" at the enterprise in Voronezh; since 2011, it has been planned to collect 1775 armored cars for the Russian military department in five years. With the cost of one “Italian” at that time more than 20 million rubles, the entire procurement program was estimated at more than 30 billion. At the same time, Serdyukov planned to increase the purchase of the “Rysy” to 3 thousand units, even a corresponding application was sent. However, in 2013, the production of an armored car, by the way, adopted by the Russian army in 2010, was discontinued.

What's wrong?



In 2013, already under the new Minister of Defense, Sergei Shoigu, information appeared that the Russian army was abandoning the Italian armored car in favor of domestic development, as it turned out later, it was the Tiger armored car. There were many reasons for the refusal at that time, even more assumptions were made, both supporters of the refusal and ardent defenders of the Italian armored car appeared.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense explained the need for mass purchase of light armored vehicles "Lynx" plans to create several light brigades that were supposed to move on these armored vehicles. In addition, they were supposed to equip special forces, reconnaissance, airborne forces, that is, those units that are fighting away from good roads. This was one of the reasons for abandoning the Lynx in favor of the Tiger. In essence, the MRAP class armored car, designed primarily for use on paved roads as an escort or patrol car, tried to put into service units that did not even dream of moving along the highway. The second reason was called the small capacity of the armored car, which accommodated only five people and a small amount of space for equipment and ammunition.


In 2016, information appeared that the Lynx armored vehicles remaining in the arsenal of the Russian army would go into service with the military police. It was assumed that armored vehicles would be used to escort convoys and patrol the perimeters of military installations. At the same time, the reason for the rejection of the "Lynx" was called insufficient patency.

According to the representative of the Ministry of Defense, "on the basis of tests conducted from November 2013 to December 2014, the Lynx (IVECO) in the area of ​​patency, armor protection and weapons was not recognized as fully meeting the requirements of the Russian military."

Most likely, having thoroughly studied all the capabilities of the Italian armored car, the Russian Ministry of Defense came to the conclusion that the domestic Tiger, at least the big complaints of the Russian family of armored vehicles from the military, would be better suited to use as an light off-road armored car and perform other tasks. did not cause.

Perhaps the rejection of the “Italian” has other reasons, because the decision was made at the highest level, but they will not be brought to us. So we confine ourselves to the option where the Italian road armored jeep simply did not fit the Russian army in the quality in which it was supposed to be used. We will not consider the option with the continued procurement of Italian armored cars and the consequences for the Russian army from this.

    Undermining a ТМ-62М mine of an armored vehicle Lynx (IVECO 65E19WM) of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria with our soldiers. The soldiers were not injured, the car worked perfectly. The Italian machine can withstand the undermining of 6 kg of explosives without seriously injured or even "two hundred" from the crew.

      In Naberezhnye Chelny in Tatarstan, JSC Remdiesel assembled the Lynx armored vehicles (Iveco LMV). The plant had two contracts for their assembly - from 2013 of the year to 207 of cars, and from 2015 of the year to assemble 83 of units. Cars are delivered to the customer. Interestingly, due to EU sanctions from 2014, the logistics had to be changed - if the first batch of LMV cars were delivered to Russia by truck, the second had to be transported by sea due to the ban on their transportation by some EU countries. Remdiesel’s revenue from 290 Lynx operations is only 7,8 million rubles that came from adding the standard hours (each machine from three modules requires 24 standard hours to assemble).

    The Ministry of Defense concluded that for use as a light off-road armored car


    But as the crush with the Americans in Syria showed, off the road, that the Tiger, that Oshkosh, that Cyprus - buried on the bottom and that’s it.

    However, Oshkosh, Cyprus and Iveco are able to save l / s from the most relevant damaging factor (IED). No, of course, if 3 bags are buried and undermined on the way, it’ll break. But the ideology of MRI and simply elevated explosion-proof vehicles with a complete saturation of parts is built on this. The buckets dug under the road become ineffective. This means that the women are forced to make powerful VCA - and this is a greater risk of getting at the stage of collection, promotion and bookmarking. Also, instead of 5-6 IEDs, 1 IED is laid, which is also generally better for the occupation / patrol forces wink .

      It does not bother to remember that the “Tiger” of the Moscow Region ordered with the third protection class, and then suddenly rolled out claims why they did not correspond to the 5th. The police ordered immediately with the 5th - and received them.
      By the way, "The tiger was still rejected due to the fact that the engine was Comins, that is, not Russian, but to Iveco, for some reason, such questions did not arise.
      The purchase of Iveco, (like the Mistral) was purely political.

    The British experience of operating in Afghanistan gave a lot of negative feedback. There is a much "advanced" technique from Germany or Switzerland.
    Shoigu did the right thing. Italian technology there is only 20-30%, the rest - German, American, Dutch and other countries. 3 countries make armor, a German transmission, an Italian engine. A bunch of American components.
    ALL NATO. And without spare parts TODAY the army would be in a deep ... pit.
    And the third class of protection of the "Tiger" was "registered" in TK for development ... for some reason.

        Wow! But for the simple reason that the line of Russian engines simply has no analogues of high-speed engines and water cannons ...

              This is explained in an elementary way - they are not purchased. Or they buy, but not everywhere. There are many reasons and you can paint a lot.

              But mine-protected 4x4 cars are: Scorpion LSHA-2B, KamAZ-53949 "Typhoon", a modification of the Tiger Tiger-M. There were also not developed weapons. Also, do not forget that it is only necessary to make a large order for the development and purchase and everyone will start working hard.

              But there is no order.

        Lightweight Iveco LMV was developed even before the Americans occupied Iraq in 2003, and in the process realized that they needed MRAP. In Afghanistan, they still realized that they needed not just MRAP, but cars capable of moving not only on asphalt, but also off-road. I mean lung MRAP. Since then, nothing better than Iveco LMV has appeared in the MRAP light class (well, not the four-seater Oshkosh L-ATV in the end), except for the LMV-2:

      We have already compared them more than once, even at the time when it was only decided to purchase them.
      Iveco was originally a purely civilian car, on which they hung all kinds of protection. The armored capsules, which are sometimes remembered, are not there, unlike the same "Tiger".
      On passability “Tiger” loses outright (in net somewhere there is a video with these tests.)
      It’s worth adding here that their keromic armor does not hold our frosts.

The Italian Centaur was also present at the trials with the Lynxes, the tank had to be pulled on the cable, and the tower could not be deployed - the rotary electronics controlling the process froze ...

    It all starts with the simple, and what the customer needs. From a modest design experience, I can say, to disassemble and study, in fact to do your own, is always real. I do not think that the Italians have something beyond abstruse there. You can contact the Yuarovtsy, those on the basis of our Urals rivets technology, they have experience in manufacturing since the era of the USSR. You can drink tea with the Kazakhs, see what their experience with the same Yuarovtsy led. Now captured equipment is coming from Syria, you can send specialists to Yemen and study the trophies there. But there is only one result, Russian technological and production capabilities. If in the days of the USSR, technology and samples of materials would have been simply stolen, now they are to give all this wealth to. Private traders are pissed off, they are shaking for loot, stolen and pulled over a hill. So prosrali own aluminum industry.

    It seems to me that a real MPAP based on a heavy truck would be useful to ours. For wire columns and patrols. Armed with four towers with KPVT and AGS. It is relatively inexpensive, the resource is large, the parts are cheap, expensive motor hours of all kinds of armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles are saved, in the event of an attack by saboteurs, there are more chances to survive and repulse the attack than armored personnel carriers, even with a cannon (the infantryman still flew into it or 14 mm) .
    And why do I need a Tiger in the presence of the BTR-70, I do not really understand. It is expensive, there is little space in it, the protection is the same (I'm talking about Grade 3, and up to Grade 5 you can also weigh armored personnel carriers), and the APC’s traffic is better. That mines armored personnel carrier holds bad.

Let the price double due to armor and KPVT, all the same, for the price of one T-90 (118 million) it will be possible to take 6-7 MCUs and get 24 surveillance channels and 24 destruction channels with an incomparably longer resource and lower operating costs.

              A tiger machine for reconnaissance groups, an armored personnel carrier (APC) for transporting infantry out of combat.
              The difference is about the same as between sneakers and model shoes. In shoes, you can also run and jump, but it’s better to do it in shoes adapted for this.

    VPK, our manufacturer of Zaporozhets, sorry BTR-82, including the Tigers. The military-industrial complex is part of the GAZ Group, which belongs to a type of talented (married) businessman, as well as to the oligarch Deripaska, but it’s easier then the Family. Tigers and Lynxes were in Syria, there were explosions of this and that, the result in the studio please.

    Our industry is able to create an armored car no worse than Iveco, another question is whether the developer will let him release it and whether he will receive an order. Nobody asks about our army about anything, let’s at least here we will not drive the snowstorm to each other. We are again scratched about the supply of BTR-82A / AM and they say some of them, about 160 units. produced anew, not modernized. What’s new, what’s modernized there, you can’t do it yourself, there’s no money for the Boomerang, so at least keep someone else’s:

    How long will our landing force jump into the side windows? The Romanians, with their level of industry engaged in the eternal modernization of our T-50s from the time of the King of the Peas, upgraded the BTR-70 even then, when will we? What is our army ecstatic about the method of landing from BTR-80/82? Does our army directly stick out from the Tiger's mine resistance, which even in the latest modification is inferior to the Italian? Iveco had cars with a greater carrying capacity and internal volume, talk about the alleged model having a specific problem with this model and comparing it with the Tiger, well, where’s the conscience? ...

    Iveco was originally a purely civilian car, on which they hung all kinds of protection. The armored capsules, which are sometimes remembered, are not there, unlike the same "Tiger".


    Iveco LMV was originally an army armored vehicle, which was developed by Iveco in the late 90s and early 2000s (the first prototype was ready in 2001) based on the experience of the Italian peacekeeping contingent in Bosnia. There are also unarmored versions purchased for example by the Italian Ministry of Civil Protection. Iveco LMV has a frame-panel structure - a spatial frame and conventional or armored panels mounted on it. The same design has the domestic armored car VPK-39271 "Wolf" and is not accepted for service. Tiger-M has a frame structure and a welded crew cockpit of armored steel 5 mm thick. As a result, the Tiger-M is significantly inferior to the Iveco LMV / Lynx in terms of ballistic and mine protection with a slightly larger mass (ASN-233115 - curb weight of 6880 kg, gross weight of 8080 kg). The Tiger-M has more seats and a better cross-country ability, since it is corny more and has larger diameter wheels. Patency of the LMV-2016 presented in 2 with increased wheel diameter and ground clearance:

    https://bmpd.livejournal.com/1965265.html

    It is comparable to the Tigra-M cross-country ability, as well as the total masses of these vehicles (8080 kg and 8100 kg respectively). Payload ASN-233115 "Tiger-M" - 1200 kg, Iveco LMV-2 - 1500 kg.
