New tracked armored personnel carrier for arctic conditions is being developed in Russia

A new tracked armored personnel carrier capable of performing combat missions in the Far North is being created in Russia, work on it is already underway. About this in an interview with RIA News said the Director General of the developer of LLC Military Industrial Company Alexander Krasovitsky.


According to the Director General, the company's engineers are working on a new tracked armored personnel carrier capable of performing combat missions in arctic conditions. However, Krasovitsky refused to talk about the characteristics and timing of the appearance of the new car.

As for the creation of tracked armored vehicles, the design of an all-terrain armored vehicle of this type is currently underway. This will be an armored personnel carrier capable of performing combat missions in the Far North. I will not announce the dates and characteristics of the car, everything has its time

- he said.

For our part, we note that the Military Industrial Company LLC is a developer of the Tiger armored vehicles family and the Boomerang wheeled armored platform, so we can assume that the new tracked armored personnel carrier is created on the basis of the Boomerang and will have basic characteristics like this platforms, of course, taking into account application in arctic conditions.

Recall that earlier there was information about the development in Kurgan of a special Arctic version of the BMP under the name "Knight". There is no great information about this infantry fighting vehicle, it is known that a gas turbine engine will be installed specifically for use in the Arctic.

    Motolyga survive all!
    The age-old release date is pretty tough for her.

      If the photo is about what it is, then it will be a reliable, not expensive, mastered in production, maintainable machine. The BTR-82 tower, the MTLBU chassis, the case is similar to the Zoo, the engine will be delivered obviously serial, as well as the walkie-talkies, grandmothers, FVU, etc. In general, the Lego designer, which will make it very expensive.

        Before Maidan, the Russian Federation with pleasure purchased the snow-and-swamp vehicle XTZ-10NK. The product (I don’t remember which Central Asian republic) was effectively exploited in the mountains.
        Suitable for deserts, though up to +50 degrees C.
        Only the MTLB / MTLBU case was used ONLY.

          Excuse me, what is the difference between MTLBu and KhTZ-10NK? The second (KhTZ-10NK) is simply a civilian version of MTLBu, produced by the Kharkov Tractor!

            It was of course! As far as I know, between the civilian and military versions, it is mainly in the material of the body - the military version uses alloyed cold-rolled homogenized armor steel, and for the civilian version they take something simpler and cheaper - an ordinary boiler room. Well, there are still no walkie-talkies and some other purely army bells and whistles! Everything else is practically one-to-one. hi

        Such a hybrid mutant - not will be able to work normally on the battlefield. If only because the BTR-82 and the MT-LB family - for battle - is complete bullshit. bully

          BMP "Knight" according to available data is an armored DT-30 "Vityaz" with installed combat modules. On the basis of the DT-30 for the Arctic, a whole family of machines is being created, incl. Arctic versions of the "Tor" and "Pantsir" air defense systems

    "VPK" has a lot of projects and making a tracked vehicle based on a wheeled vehicle is far from the best solution.
    And given that the structure of the VPK LLC includes the Zavolzhsky plant of tracked tractors, which specializes in the production of tracked vehicles for special conditions, then this machine will be designed taking into account the capabilities of its production

    Arctic self-propelled air defense systems Tor and Shell, T-80 tanks and now armored personnel carriers with
    gas turbine engines.
    A whole line of technology and
    uniforms especially for conditions of the far north.
    Soon our Arctic brigades
    will become the most combat-ready
    The world.

              That is, no one, the countries of Latin America are poor, plus they are afraid of the sanctions of the United States, Brazil and Argentina, for example, terminated a number of agreements with us. Only Venezuela can buy there, but it does not need the Arctic option

    therefore, it can be assumed that the new tracked armored personnel carrier is being created on the basis of the Boomerang

    That is, there will be an arctic armored personnel carrier, but there will be no Boomerang in the troops ???

      On account will be or not, yet nothing is known. And it is far from being a fact that it will be a kind of "Boomerang". Some assumptions of the "expert".
      so can be assumedthat a new tracked armored personnel carrier is being created on the basis of the Boomerang

    An infantry fighting vehicle with a gas turbine engine can be created anew, can it be easier to plug such an engine into an infantry fighting vehicle on the Armata platform?

      The Armata is a heavy platform designed to be at the forefront of the offensive, with all its layers of defense. I doubt that fighting will take place in the Arctic like a "throw to the English channel", with the use of all types of weapons. Yes, and it is heavy. The task of this vehicle will be to quickly and stealthily deliver the Arctic infantry to a threatened area in any weather conditions, over any landscape, and to clear the territory from enemy sabotage groups. This means it should be comfortable inside, light, mobile, walkable and floating. There is more DT-30PM for the base than MTLB is suitable.

        In the Russian Arctic - the States - in the case of "Quite Big Kneading" - they plan to land troops by force before the airborne forces ...

        I agree, since they make air defense and artillery on the basis of the hero, then the armored personnel carrier must be brought on the same chassis, the logistics of spare parts and maneuverability will be ideal.

        I saw it in "Mimino", there was a KrAZ in the polar version. Yes, back then, officials were no worse than the current ones, and you can’t argue against it, there are funds, and they were distributed according to them. And if you wander around, you won't get anything at all.
