British Army will switch to electric vehicles

123

UK-based NP Aerospace is commissioned by the military to develop an innovative hybrid drive system for vehicles. The work is being carried out in conjunction with General Dynamics UK, Supacat and Magtec, which are creating prototypes of Foxhound and Jackal 2 vehicles for the army. The British government has allocated three million pounds for this.


The head of the British Defense Department, Jeremy Quinn, said that the introduction of a hybrid drive would increase the stability and combat effectiveness of army vehicles:

These developments will provide our armed forces with the latest, safest and most efficient technology, while continuing to support the prosperity of the British army.

Using the new engines, the military will have significant advantages, as they make less noise, making the movement of units more secretive. In addition, the UK Armed Forces' dependence on fossil fuels will be reduced, in line with the government's plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to near zero by 2050.

The British military is currently continuing to test the new hybrid engine system in Jackal wheeled reconnaissance vehicles and MRAP Ocelot vehicles of the 1st Royal Dragoon Guards.

    Foxhond? _ Plagiarism! laughing ... But honestly, will the hybrid be able to provide the required power for a military armored car with a tonnage wife? Something I doubt.

        Local police have already howled from electric vehicles. When chasing, or just rushing to a call, the batteries run out very, very quickly. Electric vehicles will no longer be purchased for emergency services. Maximum hybrids for standard patrolling of parks, beaches, parking lots, etc.
        This problem was voiced at the end of last year. Two arrests in a row were thwarted. The BBC wrote about it.
        Now you decided to recoup the military? laughing

        Something tricky turns out. We have Volvo-Hybrid buses, it has an electric motor on batteries, up to a speed of 20 km. the electric engine is working, the diesel is higher. After a few hours, recharging at a special station.
        What kind of charging can be on the battlefield, or in military conditions. Well, if only in Britain on a good road to roll girls, then it'll do.

    Negative temperatures are also harmful to lithium accumulators - they reduce the energy output. If we compare the supply of energy delivered at +20 ° С and other temperatures, then:
    when the temperature drops to +4 ° С, the amount of energy supplied decreases by 5–7%;
    with a subsequent decrease in temperature below 0 ° С, 40-50% of the capacity is lost, and the battery resource is prematurely exhausted.

                  You pinned him not badly. But Roman, as I understand it, is a theorist. He "drowns to the fullest" for technology never once faced with them in reality.
                  I somehow remember trucks without tires somewhere near Magadan. Probably burned tires - charge the batteries.

                  Roman, I have nothing against technology. Technology is good. But here's another hundred, one hundred and fifty years ...

                    Although I believe that the future belongs to the electromechanical transmission.

                    The batteries have not yet reached the required specific capacity, price and safety. On the strength of "molecular storage" and other capacitors ... But it will not be quite a hybrid

          I agree, it does not burn oxygen from the ambient air, the oxidizer is already in the very formula of smokeless powder. But when gunpowder is burned, carbon dioxide, water and nitrogen oxide are formed. With CO2, the situation is ambiguous, with its emissions to fight, but here we can say that since gunpowder is produced from plant raw materials, for example cotton, then its balance is zero, how much CO2 was absorbed during the growth of cotton, the same amount was released during burning of gunpowder. But the release of nitric oxide is definitely detrimental to the environment. So it is necessary for the "British scientists" and the greens to pay attention to this and prohibit the British army from using gunpowder and explosives.

        Gunpowder does not burn air; the oxygen necessary for combustion is contained in the gunpowder itself. In black powder - in the composition of nitrate, smokeless gunpowder is itself cellulose nitrate with three oxygen atoms.

    I remember something, as at the end of the Vietnam War, "Foreign Military Review" wrote about the development of an American "omnivorous" platform for vehicles of different carrying capacity. It was a prototype of a device that could ride on anything that burns: gasoline, diesel fuel, gas, fuel oil, coal, wood, etc. A kind of gas generating creation, which in turn was supposed to drive an electric generator supplying current to the electric motors of the wheels. More than forty years have passed. New batteries, materials and technologies have appeared. Let's see what happens with the British.

      At the same time, Science and Life (again, EMNIP) contained an article about the fundamental possibility of using any hydrocarbons to generate electricity with an efficiency of at least 40%, and in the limit - up to 75-80%.
      Although specific technologies were not given, there was only speculative reasoning based on the results of individual studies and experiments.

      For Bradley, the United States is considering the same scheme. It seems that there were projects of our armored personnel carriers with a hybrid installation. High torque and the absence of a gearbox are the main advantages of electric motors. The internal combustion engine, as a source of electricity, operates at the most optimal parameters, which saves its resource and increases efficiency.

      BelAZ is not a hybrid, it does not know how to accumulate energy. It just has a continuously variable electric transmission. Like a diesel locomotive.
      According to this scheme, they still loved to build non-standard tanks. You can recall one of the first tanks in the world - "Saint-Chamond", German Ferdinand, Maus.

      Ferdinand Porsche also designed a VK 4502 (P) tank with an electromechanical transmission. But the project was not accepted due to the high cost. But on the Panzerkampfwagen VIII "Maus" such a transmission was installed, but things did not go beyond 3 copies, the Reich ceased to exist. The Soviet soldier won.

    Where noiselessness is needed "on a jump" to the enemy, the electric motor drives.

      Well, you have named mutually exclusive conditions. If you do not make the march stealthy, then the batteries will add little. If the area of ​​deployment is disclosed, then the batteries will not help. A tactical miracle will arrive and a la verda.
      For drones (including ground ones), yes, it will work. But with a bunch (no, with a bunch) reservations. It's too early for a live crew to speculate. However, the likelihood of his defeat on the route negates all the advantages of noiselessness of electric motors. After all (if I understood correctly) we are moving forward on a hybrid (we turn electric generators with trivial diesel engines) and only at the "X" hour we go noiselessly on batteries.
      Hmm. This tactic has certain drawbacks. However, I mentioned it above.

        Both tanks and infantry fighting vehicles will be hybrid.
        And precisely for the reason that I have voiced.
        The tank, even before the ATGM driver spotted it visually, betrays itself with the roar of the engine. This allows the ATGM operator to prepare the system for firing. And the tank, which drove out noiselessly, will have time to fire a couple of shots before being aimed at it.

          So that's what we are talking about. When will it be possible to provide a course of 600-1000 km. on batteries, there will be something to discuss. Namely: smokelessness; secrecy (visual by the way, because in the electromagnetic range all "trains" are in full view); unpretentiousness in service.
          In the meantime, referring to hybrids is not a very strong position for a dispute.

                Everything you talk about has a technical solution. The question of the price and necessity of this solution If a hybrid engine does not provide new properties, it is not needed. And to make it work up to -273 degrees Celsius is technically possible, but pointless.
                And armored vehicles are already arriving in the army with hybrid engines, the same L-ATVs. In this case, the hybrid engine gave fuel economy, increased cross-country ability, and most importantly, an autonomous energy source to power various devices with a reduced consumption of motor resources.
                This is not a question of "100 years", hybrid engines are already in the army, with the development of technologies and cheaper prices, they will increase. Let's look at the new programs that will come out. The fact that hybrids are the future is a fact, ICE has reached its limit. Purely electric motors are in question at the current stage of technical development.

According to the Oshkosh literature, [66] The propulsive diesel-electric powertrain significantly improves fuel economy by up to 35 percent in certain circumstances and serves as an onboard generator with enough power to power an entire airfield or hospital, generating up to 120 kW AC for external operations; a hybrid powertrain is not a requirement of the JLTV program. [8] In a limited user test (LUT), the L-ATV demonstrated a reliability of 7 "operational mission average miles between operational mission failures," more than the Humvee and any other JLTV competitor.

        The advantages are not only low noise. Electric motors remove the gearbox and all accompanying mechanisms, have an extremely high torque. The internal combustion engine (as a source of electricity) operates in the most optimal modes, without serious loads. That increases the resource and reduces fuel consumption.
        This scheme is optimal for heavy armored vehicles.

          Well, let's figure it out in stages.
          1) Low noise. Didn't notice the win. Yes, the same "Tesla" is much quieter than a small car. But louder than a 1984 Cadillac. Kadi - whispers, Tesla is silent. It's in the parking lot. But how her electric motor howls when driving. Ooooh.
          Not convinced. eleven.
          2) Electric motors remove the gearbox. No, they don't. In toys: electric scooters, electric bicycles - yes. There is a motor-wheel. In bikes there is already a gearbox with a main gearbox. And why? Because there are several factors. The main ones are: unsprung weight, torque. With a gyroscope of half a ton, you are unlikely to get maneuverability (and if there are several of them), and the motor-wheel is unlikely to master the swamp (and even a rise of 30 degrees, it is difficult for him if from acceleration).
          3) Optimal modes. False if there is no checkpoint. You don't have a hundred thousand amperes of current (and if you have, melt the motor). So without a checkpoint, this is so, toys.

              Yah. New joint stock bank for Tesla in MSC (excluding taxes, customs and delivery) 12 USD. In its pure form 000 26USD. This is also taking into account the old battery. But excluding installation and warranty.
              We are with you on different planets :) However, maybe this is insignificant money for you. Then yes.

                Tesla is not officially represented here. I repeat, we are not a sales market for them. For "western" countries and the country where "voyaka uh" lives, 12 dollars, 000-3 is the average salary. Those. as for us 4-120 rubles.
                yes we live on different economic planets.

      Where noiselessness is needed "on a jump" to the enemy, the electric motor drives. He jumped up silently - fired. I drove off. And on the marches, move on the internal combustion engine.
      You, good sir, are a little wrong a little. If only a part of such machines will be specialized, so to speak, then yes, but if everything is secret, then no. This motor, electric, can be heard, but the caterpillars are made of iron and the stones under them burst, or fly off and hit the places without hitting, etc. etc. So, a very dubious case.

    Greta Thunberg's ecological ideas have really been turned on the wrong side of some. Maybe not everyone knows that at subzero temperatures, the effectiveness of lithium ion batteries tends to zero. Those who want to experiment can take their favorite iPhone or mobile phone out into the cold in winter. In general, the idea of ​​a car on batteries is forcibly squeezed into the brain of the people by the creator of the American "miracle" Tesla, multibillionaire Elon Musk. To more confidently promote his product in the USA, Elon Musk skillfully inflated the "diesel scandal" by excluding diesel engines from competitors. Maybe not everyone knows that it is almost impossible to extinguish an electric car. The EU has developed a technology for extinguishing electric vehicles, they are simply drowned in water for 24 hours. They drag a huge container of water into the parking lot and drown a burning electric car there. Apparently the British are taller to develop such a method of extinguishing for their armored electric vehicles.

      Norway is a northern country. Fully switches to electric vehicles. There will be no gas stations in the country. The problems that you wrote about are solved in Tesla. And the decrease in efficiency from cold, and fire hazard. Otherwise Tesla would not be sold like cakes, like an avalanche.

        Norway is not switching to electric vehicles, it is only planning. As you know, there is a huge distance from planning to real steps. By the way, last year the largest airport in Norway was paralyzed for two days. In the underground parking, a car caught fire and could not be extinguished.

    In addition, the UK Armed Forces' dependence on fossil fuels will be reduced,

    And this is generally a masterpiece, their armored cars will be fueled directly with the energy of space

    But on the Panzerkampfwagen VIII "Maus" such a transmission was installed, but the matter did not go further than 3 copies, the Reich ceased to exist. The Soviet soldier won.


    Is it necessary to "push" the victory here?
    And about Mouse, transmission, etc. - the wrong level of technology. Now even a schoolchild can put an electric wheel on a bicycle. And before it was fantastic.

    Excuse me, Stavropol, Tesla 0, or rather even -1, and this despite the fact that we are south.
    At the expense of the decision with the cold and fire hazard, you know, give me a reference and I will support you. But for now, alas, where will the Northern country of Norway charge its ALL cars, and trucks and special equipment from?
    And transit transport will also be switched to electricity, and it looks like sea transportation, they are the leaders, will be on Chinese batteries. And do not broadcast about alternative energy. And also about heating, motorcycles, diesel engines on drilling platforms and polar explorers with heating on solar cells and wind turbines.

      from where will the northern country Norway charge its ALL cars, trucks and special equipment?

      From environmentally friendly wind turbines and gas thermal power plants.

        probably some do not know that no one wants to live next to environmentally friendly wind turbines. Windmills hum day and night. In densely populated countries, there is simply no place to install wind turbines.

    There will be someone to help our patrols on the roads in Syria ...
    They will be discharged, they will stand, they will vote ... They will be picked up, they will recharge with recuperation, and then the proud ones will unhook and show a fig wassat

    In general, the idea is not bad, given the large number of electronics. Plus, relative independence from fuel supplies.

    But with cons.
    - the weight of batteries and electric motors plus an engine running on traditional fuel and its fuel will be greater with comparable power.
    - batteries are afraid of water and fire (lithium especially "loves" water) But traditional fuel also burns.
    - maintenance in the field, in the desert, electric motors ...
    But you can still be charged from the sun.

    You can also find + and -, progress does not stand still. Everyone is looking for the optimal balance of qualities taking into account the available technologies.
