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.

        She will not be cheap. They wrote that they would install a gas turbine ... and this is another box and suspension ..... and a caterpillar and control.

        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 mainly in the body material - in the military version they use alloyed cold-rolled homogenized armored steel, and for the civilian version they take what is simpler and cheaper - the usual boiler room. Well, there is still no walkie-talkie and some other purely army gadgets! Everything else is practically one-on-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

        And in other sources - BMP "Knight". Some nonsense.

          Well, as always, Stick the first photo that came to hand, and the opinions of dubious "experts" and there, let users digest it. The main thing is that the author wrote an worthless article in his asset, based on unverified rumors. Drive similar authors from this, I (still) respected site with rags need

          BMP "Knight" according to reports - this is an armored DT-30 "Vityaz" with installed combat modules. The DT-30 base for the Arctic creates a whole family of machines, including Arctic versions of the air defense system "Tor" and "Shell"

    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 VPK LLC includes the Zavolzhsky Caterpillar Tractor Plant Plant, specializing in the production of caterpillar equipment for special conditions, then this machine will be designed taking into account the possibilities 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

                  The question was about the export potential and, as already mentioned above, the market needs desert species, well, maybe even with increased buoyancy, it will be possible to sell Indonesia

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

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

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

      Armata is a heavy platform, designed to be on the cutting edge of the offensive, with all its levels of defense. I doubt that in the Arctic there will be military operations ala "throw on the English Channel", using all types of weapons. Yes, and she is heavy. The task of this machine will be the quick and inconspicuous delivery of the Arctic infantry to the threatened area in any weather conditions, in any landscape, and the cleaning of the territory from enemy sabotage groups. That means it should be comfortable inside, light, mobile, walkable and floating. There is more DT-30PM for the base than MTLB is suitable.

        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 it was the KrAZ in the polar version. Yes, then officials booed no worse than the current ones and you won’t argue against them, there are funds, and according to them they distributed them. But if you wander, you won’t get anything at all.
