Two new brands of armored steel for light armored vehicles have been developed in Russia

In Russia, new armored steel grades have been developed. According to the press service of Severstal, the company has developed two grades of steel of the 500th and 550th classes for promising armored vehicles such as armored personnel carriers.


New armored brands of the 500th, and subsequently the 550th class will be able to replace the currently used brands in the new generation of wheeled vehicles, which is replacing armored personnel carriers and other types of light vehicles

- said the company.

According to the developers, the new armor of the 500th class shows the 4th class of armor protection, and at certain angles the fifth one (withstands a 5,45X39, 7,62X39 and 7,62X54 caliber bullet from 10 meters). This brand has already passed the tests of the Ministry of Defense and is currently undergoing registration for further use. Armor of the 550th class provides the 5th class of armor protection (withstands hit by a bullet from a Dragunov sniper rifle).

The company claims that new brands of armored steel are in demand for the production of armored personnel carriers, light armored vehicles and in the civilian sector. In addition, the 550-class grade and its improved analogue can be used for the production of bullet-proof nets, which in their characteristics significantly exceed samples created from steel of ordinary grades.

Note that the Severstal company supplies enterprises of the military-industrial complex with about ten grades of steel, including for the production of armored vehicles and ships.

      Yes, this is a purely advertising statement in any case.
      That would still massively everything on armored personnel carriers with 10 (!) meters purely from riflemen figachili. = _ =
      After all, whennotcertain angles ", it turns out that does not hold. And clearly at a great distance.

          Nothing about the article.
          The first thing to report is to compare with the old options.
          Now, if with the same protection parameters a new brand is easier or cheaper, then yes. It’s worth bragging.
          And since they didn’t say anything about it, it means he just drank money.

      I tried to find GOST or something similar by testing steel armor. It didn’t work, everything was complete, but I didn’t find the data on steel itself, just how and how they test it.
      This is hardly a great secret, only chipboard standards are possible!

        Well, well, I don’t like it when they start chatting ahead of time .. Create an armored personnel carrier with such armor and show it on tests .. And then it’s not a sin to shout Hurray! hi

          Perhaps they have little hope of a government order, then preliminary advertising will be in the subject. This is a commercial event, advertise, then sell! There are no great secrets here, just competition.

              The boom hopes that military representatives will correctly appreciate this new product and others that are offered.
              Although not everything now depends on them, but the correctly drawn up task allows avoiding many frills, or vice versa, saving on important performance characteristics of the ordered product.
              In short, work more thoroughly / check and everything will be normal! soldier

          Sheets of C500 armored steel in thicknesses less than 8 mm are not produced. It remains only to understand the classes of protection according to GOST 34282-2017, the journalist broadcasts or not.

        What do you immediately begin to water all the dirty cattle? The article is just about armor protection, research is underway and some achievements are available .. And you immediately raised a howl and a tantrum with stupid comparisons .. Damn it! Regarding the celebration of Victory, they also unsubscribed in this sense, or worse ..

                  No offense. In words, all the more so on the Internet, I’m not offended for 10+ years already (even in a real fight I do not immediately start looking for it, trying to resolve the matter with the world as far as possible - until the second blow).
                  But check - hih. Just could look at a profile selectively any of my random comments. And all at once it would become clear.

                Yes, it’s funny on the contrary - the proposal to insert armored plates from an armored personnel carrier into the “bronik”, as I understand it, was purely out of joke, and the colleague Kuronenko just brought it, from the same joke, to absurdity. Which underscored the failure of this idea.

This institute, which became the leading one, became an unconditional \ expert in the field of ballistic protection of armored objects and the personal protection of the shooter.

      And rightly so, and then a lot of curious people got divorced .. What and how and send drawings and calculations to the PM ..)))


      And do not send. they’ll bring their own to enemies on a silver platter, like secrets on MIG 105

    from the beginning of the onset of capitalism in Russia, people began to install armored doors in apartments ... did this increase our security? ... the rhetorical question ... can any protection be overcome ... there is, of course, a short-term protection effect .. but no more .. .

    The opinion of the amateur:
    That would be glad for the success of domestic metallurgists, to be happy for the army.
    But no ....
    A very practical voice inside whispers: all this “new” is mixed up with cheaper components.
    And the achievement is that ALMOST it was possible to repeat the properties of a normal bulletproof steel, at a substantially low cost. That is, everything is capitalistic: maximum profit while minimizing costs

      Even if so, then this is quite an achievement. Having almost normal, but at the same time cheap and technologically advanced armor is much better than not having it. Remember the same Germans, and how much the quality of their tank armor fell with a lack of alloying additives. But here, for example, during a period of shortage of rubber, we switched to skating rinks with internal depreciation (they require rubber several times less, although worse in their parameters) - which was a very elegant way out.

      500 and 550 is not our steel grade. So in Europe it is simply customary to denote, this Brinell hardness obtained by standard hardening is determined, I think everyone understands, by a set of alloying additives. For export, in general.
      At a glance, this is 0,4 carbon, 0,14 chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, structural steel, our metallurgy has long been known as 4X13.

    This brand has already passed the tests of the Ministry of Defense and is currently undergoing registration for further use.

    The best test is on developers. Planted in their "product", and shoot from all sides with different caliber. As before in medicine. Invented a new drug - try it for yourself. Even Catherine II, the first to experience the vaccine against smallpox, before allowing her to be launched into the "masses". good

    Since when did the manufacturers begin to body-armor? This is the bread of the former MISIS, there are both theorists and the test base.

      It was in the days of the USSR, and now it’s straight .. angry
      Maybe they bought everything and everyone and the advertising campaign started ..? Now it is ubiquitous .. If they do not agree, they press and blackmail. hi

        Then the probability of a recurrence of troubles with BTR-4 armor among the non-brothers is high. The fact that the armor is KEEPING does not mean that it is WELDABLE! As a welder technologist, I affirm! Alas, transferring it to the Paton Institute for testing and selecting welding technology is now impossible! ((((

          The problem with the BTR-4 was that they generally used left (as far as I remember, Finnish) armor, which did not fit this welding process at all, because It was designed specifically for the Soviet.
          This should not happen right there - since the armor is being developed domestically, then the welding technology for it in the complex should also be ready.

            ] There shouldn’t be such a thing - since the armor is being developed domestically, then the welding technology for it in the complex should also be ready. MUST — I like that word! A VALMET doesn’t do anything out of this armor! With real finnish quality! Just-there is armor under the riveting, there do not care for weldability! Yes, and the technology of armor welding in the Union was dealt with by PATON! Specialists went to each defense plant on demand, got acquainted with the design and took samples. For each site and metal thickness, welding modes, filler materials (wire, flux), and heat treatment were prescribed.

    it was hard for them to write the thickness of the plate

    what is interesting is the message from PAO Severstal, and not from the Research Institute of Steel

    on their website commercial armor: Hardness, HB no more than 444 **

    Scandinavians / Canadians have commercial armor up to 550
