Arzamas "Arrow": the younger sister of the "Tiger"

Speed ​​armored car


First of all, in the new car from Arzamas, the dynamic capabilities surprise: the maximum speed, according to the manufacturer, is up to 150 km / h! For a 4,7-ton armored car, this is a very serious parameter, requiring, firstly, a remarkable engine, and, secondly, powerful brakes. The car, the official name of which is “the light armored vehicle of the military-industrial complex“ Strela ”, is in many ways a unique armored car for our army. If Strela is adopted, it will be the first of its kind. This is stated by the general director of the military-industrial complex Alexander Krasovitsky:

“On an initiative basis, as soon as possible, the designers of the Military Industrial Company LLC developed and proposed a concept for creating light class cars, within the framework of which an experimental model of an armored vehicle from the VPK-Strela family was developed and manufactured. To date, there are simply no such armored vehicles in service with our army. ”



The proportions of the armored car are quite traditional. Source: autoreview.ru

The idea of ​​building a light class armored car looks like a fairly logical marketing step. The military-industrial company at the Arzamas Engineering Plant already produces a bunch of modifications of the 8-ton Tiger, the even heavier Athlete is actively tested (about 9 tons), and last year an experienced 15-ton VPK-Ural was assembled. In addition, the troops operate more than 200 armored vehicles "Lynx", or IVECO LMV, developed in the camp of a potential enemy. There is also a restyled version of the "Tiger", a distinctive feature of which are six small eye-headlights. The market positions of heavy and medium tactical machines are not just occupied, there is also strong competition. Therefore, it seems logical that the company develops a new niche for light airborne armored vehicles. The mass and overall parameters of the Arrows allow you to move on the external sling of the Mi-8 series helicopters. By the way, four eyes protruding around the perimeter of the roof clearly hint at this.

At the moment, not much is known about the car. Most of the information will be disclosed at the August Army 2020 forum. In the same place, according to the publication "Autoreview", other modifications of the "Arrows" will be presented: floating and utility version. In the cabin of the traditional civil layout fit, depending on the performance, from 5 to 8 people. Unlike the Tiger series cars, the Arzamas Arrow withstands undermining at least 2 kilograms of TNT. The Tiger, as you know, is capable of digesting only about 600 grams of such explosives without critical crew injuries. In this regard, it is interesting to compare the Strela with another new product from the military industrial complex - the 9-ton armored car Athlete. According to the manufacturer, this machine also withstands an explosion of about 2 kg of TNT. Recall that the weight of the "Strela" with a similar resistance to explosion is two times less. What is the secret of such durability of the Arzamas 4,7-tonne news? In the new car, the traditional Kevlar anti-fragmentation lining takes on itself, as well as the instrument panel, unified with the civilian “Next Gazelle”. Of course, this will increase the comfort level of the crew, but will create a number of problems. First of all, it’s a combat vehicle: getting splinters (bullet rebound) inside is quite possible, and civilian plastic scatters from blows into many sharp fragments. In addition, plastic is flammable. This, by the way, is not news for designers from Arzamas: such plastic excesses cannot be found in the Athlete’s cabin. The second problem is the lack of fasteners for special equipment on the dashboard. It is unclear how to mount communications and navigation on a concise "gazelle" panel. In steel cladding, you can at least use a drill or self-tapping screws.

On the presented experimental car, the passenger compartment has the usual passenger seats. If the manufacturer claims resistance to a 2-pound explosion for such an easy car, then anti-traumatic seats are simply obliged to stand in the cabin. They know how to make them in Arzamas, and there is hope that they will appear on the "Arrow". A feature of such seats is the ceiling mount with a shock absorber and footrests that prevent soldiers from contacting the floor of the car. In the event of a car explosion, this reduces the likelihood of ankle and spine injuries. And, of course, the usual three-point seat belts, which are useless in an explosion, became the biggest mistake in the Strela cabin. Four-point belts like sports are mandatory here. However, it is worth repeating that this is most likely the features of a specific prototype. Perhaps this “Arrow” is prepared for life tests and is equipped with a civilian interior for convenience. Moreover, the rest of the designers perfectly prepared the armored car for the explosion: the shape of the bottom is a specific V-shaped.

Armor and motor


On the images of "Arrows", a solid wind-proof bulletproof glass attracts attention. The rest of the military-industrial complex has a strictly divided stack, and here is a luxurious panoramic armored unit. Changing it entirely in case of defeat is impractical, and even very difficult: such a glass weighs more than one hundred kilograms. The novelty is armored in domestic level 2, which implies protection from bullets with a heat-strengthened core of a cartridge of caliber 5,45 × 39 mm from AK-74, bullets with a heat-strengthened core of a cartridge of caliber 7,62 × 39 mm from AKM and bullets with a non-heat-strengthened core of a cartridge of caliber 7,62 , 54 × XNUMX mm from SVD. Strela’s armor is domestic, but the rest of the content is not so simple. The manufacturer does not disclose detailed information about the motor, but so far it is an imported unit, which they promise to localize next year. Another история with the localization of foreign technology and the lack of own developments in this sector. We can only assume that to ensure the necessary power supply, a diesel engine with a capacity of at least 200 l / s will be required.

The outer contours of the "Arrow" body turned out to be okay. The stylistic solutions of the armored hull have something in common with the older brother of the "VPK-Ural", especially the characteristic squint of the head lighting technology. Obviously, this design architecture will become typical of the new armored vehicles from Arzamas. The frame of the armored car is its own and is not borrowed from other military-industrial complex equipment. A bit of technical specifics: the front suspension is independent spring, rear leaf spring, and the gearbox is mechanical. Unified with the "Athlete" and "VPK-Ural" front and rear armored doors are noteworthy. Obviously, the creators of Strela are counting very much on the state order and are reducing production costs.

General director of the military-industrial complex Alexander Krasovitsky tells about the area of ​​application of Strela in the army:

"The machine can be used as a command vehicle, vehicle and operational and service vehicle in special units of executive authorities or as a base for creating a family of cars, as well as mounting weapons and special equipment."



One of the versions of Scorpio-LSHA, the immediate predecessor of Strela. Even the photo shows that the design is overloaded with armor. Source: ru.wikipedia.org

It should be noted that the Strela concept, strictly speaking, is not an absolute novelty for the domestic automobile industry. A few years ago, the Scorpio armored car was trying to get into the army, the curb weight of which was slightly lower - about 4300 kg. The machine carried the LSA index (light assault vehicle) and was developed at ZAO Zashchita Corporation. For some time it was tested in Bronnitsy, there was even information about the adoption of weapons, but the troops did not see it. The reason for the failure, obviously, was an outdated design based on the UAZ, and this negatively affected the reliability of the overloaded machine. If on the civilian "Patriot" many nodes are working for wear, what can we say about the armored car! It is hoped that the fate of the "Arrow" from Arzamas will be more supportive.

      In Syria, it is important to move at such a maximum speed. 150 km / h. And it also floats in some variations. I think the civilian version could interest many. It is even twice easier without armor. Accordingly, the speed will grow and cross-country ability. And also swims. Beauty. ah dreams dreams ...

    I thought that this is the UAZ niche, according to the number of passengers. Well, why not. If the bottom is V-shaped, then most likely the cardan goes in this tunnel. Of course, it’s hard for repair. Points of fastening of belts to chairs.

    First of all, in the new car from Arzamas, the dynamic capabilities surprise: the maximum speed, according to the manufacturer, reaches 150 km / h!

    Already managed to give up on her))))
    At the beginning there were good expectations, when reading the previous article - how about 4,7 tons, security and good layout, I think, at last - that’s it. And as I found out about speed - that's how I was cut off to it. I explain - for any civilian SUV, the maximum speed indicator is directly proportional to the possible cross-country ability of the car. The higher the maximum speed - the more the "parquet" SUV is obtained, and vice versa. And the reason lies in the gear ratios in the main gear (differential), and in the gearbox itself. Roughly speaking, imagine the simplest gearbox - the rotation speed at the exit (wheels) is lower — the thrust is higher, the rotation speed at the exit is higher, the thrust is lower, and for a 4,7 ton car this is critically important on the roads. No, of course, you can compensate for the shortcomings of high speed
    newfangled stray - variator and others, but all this greatly increases the cost of the project.
    Therefore, I consider the race for speed on an armored car erroneous (if not harmful).
    100-120km / hour is enough for this arrow for the eyes .....

    In fact, "overloaded with armor" "Scorpion LSHA-2B" weighs 4.1 tons, that is, 600 kg less.
    Armored in 5th grade.
    And holds 4 kg in TNT, and it’s really tested, and not the developers’s estimate ...

    So it goes...

    but the troops never saw her. The reason for the failure, obviously, was an outdated design based on the UAZ,


    Rather, in the active opposition from companies such as the military-industrial complex. As previously happened with the "Trot."

    By the way, the main "argument" against the "Scorpio" has always been a Polish diesel, localized in Russia.

      "Tiger" is not an analogue of the UAZ. For household / domestic needs, the original UAZ-469 is better suited, for transporting infantry, a normal armored personnel carrier or BMP, there is too little space for the base of a special chassis.

    A beautiful body is good. But, specifications are not indicated.
    What engine do you plan to install?
    Why did they develop the Strela if the GAZ team created a smaller Tiger-2 weighing 3,5 tons?
    What components and assemblies are installed on the "Arrow"?
    The front suspension is independent. Double wishbone? In my opinion, the springs are not as reliable unlike the torsion bars as the shock-absorbing suspension element. Clogs with dirt, a large mass of the body.
    Gearbox and transfer case own?
    In the photo I see one manual transmission lever. How to manage the razdatka, like "puck" on the dashboard is? I do not see...
    What type of drive? Permanent full, switchable front axle? Is there a split bridge in front?
    What does the V-shaped underbody mean?
    At the Tiger, the gearbox, razdatka, and driveshaft were arranged as much as possible in the frame dimensions, which gave an almost flat bottom, coupled with front and rear split axles and wheel (side) gearboxes, which increased the clearance to 400 mm.

    My friend complained that the TLK 105 diesel 4,2 liters., Weak in dynamics overtaking. I tell him - buy Supra. The tractor is not a racer, the tractor is a dirt truck.

      Yes, overtaking on a 105 Kruzak with an 1HZ atmosphere is difficult, but there are turbo kits for this engine that make long-range throws comfortable without sacrificing resources and off-road performance.

        You mean a 1HD turbodiesel? I saw little on the 105th. Petrol saw.

          The 105th was just, as a rule, with 1HZ atmosphere and mechanics. But 1HD in them put in the order of swap. 1HD is also very reliable and in the early version, which was set to 80s, differs from the HZ in fact only by the presence of a turbine, and then he already got an electronic fuel pump and an intercooler - in that form it stood on most "luxury" hundredths. And gasoline 105s are rare here, as far as I remember, such were offered for the Middle East.
          And above I wrote about the turbo kit on 1HZ, Australians, in particular, offer this. A turbine and a number of parts are installed on 1HZ, sometimes an intercooler is added. The engine practically does not lose in reliability, but it becomes faster. This whale costs about 5 bucks.

            I agree, 1HD had two-valve, then modifications with four-valve, since 2005 (if I'm not mistaken) electronic injection. Valued with a mechanical injection pump. Sometimes this fact is indicated in sales announcements.
            Yes, a gasoline engine is complete for the Arabs. I saw the 105th, brought from the Emirates with a 4-liter benz engine.
            I'm not a fan of turbodiesels, better sneeze, crawl on the sly.

    It is clear that it will not go into series production with an imported engine. Interestingly, it prevents the immediate installation of yamz-534 ... Apparently, some kind of marketing and budget-development games. On the good, the car had to be built immediately for it, especially since there is no serial alternative to this engine in this class.

      This engine in different versions where just do not put. We saw on one sea boat (KZh).

      With our quality solarium and the Common Rail type fuel injection system, problems in operation are bound to be.
      Separators are in the fleet.
      I think that for the army, a mechanical injection pump would be better for this engine.

        Definitely, the simpler, the better. In Yaroslavl, it’s not in vain, along with engines for Euro-4, they also offer Euro-0, including for the military. I don't know what they do with the lump rail in this case, and what with the fuel pump, but the urine is definitely removed :)

    The novelty is armored according to the domestic level 2, which means protection against bullets with a heat-strengthened core of a 5,45 × 39 mm cartridge from AK-74, bullets with a heat-strengthened core of a cartridge of 7,62 × 39 mm from AKM and bullets with a non-heat-strengthened core of a cartridge of 7,62 , 54 × XNUMX mm from SVD.
    And also holds nuclear warheads and Jedi swords .... I already read the 2nd essay like this .... give the authors of these creations a reference to the protection levels of armored vehicles in accordance with GOSTs of the Russian Federation ...

    recourse
    Forgot the manufacturer's statement that "Strela" is a floating armored vehicle, what is it based on?
    I remember the GAZ model of the multifunctional armored vehicle GAZ-3937 (Vodnik) was not positioned as floating. It was declared that it was able to overcome a water barrier 1,2 meters deep. So he has a supporting body, all-metal. The presence of a water propulsion unit (propeller / water cannon) is not a prerequisite for floating equipment. Examples: GTT, MTLB, other marsh snowmobiles, where tracks / wheels are used for movement in water.
    But, for a frame car, I would like to look at the tests of its buoyancy, ... on the shore.

    If the armored version weighs 4,7, then the simple one should be somewhere around 2,5. There is a very widespread chassis size in the world for various superstructures. The leader here is the Ford F-150 chassis, Chevrolet, Toyota. It's a pity there are no big motors. V-6, 8,12, XNUMX only from Aurus, but there is no diesel there.
