A special medical vehicle will be developed for the landing force and the marines

Armored ambulance car "Lens"


The Ministry of Defense ordered the development of an armored medical vehicle intended for the Airborne Forces and the Navy. More than 160 million rubles have already been allocated for development, it follows from the materials on the state procurement website.

According to the documents, the military department has ordered the development of a special medical vehicle for Russian paratroopers and marines. Development work on the project, codenamed Rakita, should be completed by November 10, 2023.

On what basis the new ambulance will be created, or it will be a new development, has not yet been reported. Other details of the project are also missing.

Note that in August last year, the Defense Ministry announced a closed auction for the development of an armored medical vehicle based on the BMP-1. The development was planned to be carried out under the code "Kurganets-M". Even earlier, in 2016, the military department had already announced a competition for the ROC with the same code, only the BMP-3 was proposed to be used as a base vehicle.

At present, the Russian army uses special armored medical vehicles of the tactical level of the "Linza" family, created on the basis of the "Typhoon-K" 4x4. For the landing force and the marines, this medical armored car is not quite suitable for its performance characteristics.

    It seems that it was announced that the Typhoon family has a modular design and, accordingly, there should be a sanitary module, what is wrong again?

      what
      Strangely, "Typhoon-VDV" is being developed on the basis of KamAZ, which means that it is suitable for performance characteristics.
      A "Lens" based on Typhoon-K (53949) is an army version, not suitable for airborne assault (sea / air).

    "...For the landing force and the marines, this medical armored car is not quite suitable for its performance characteristics..... "
    =======
    Judging by the fact that ambulances were planned on the basis of BMP-1 and BMP-3 - the requirements include at least the ability to swim and possibly parachute landing ...... It will be funny if the "Shell" after all meets all these requirements.

      Never before in real combat conditions has a single army of the world carried out a parachute landing of large forces with equipment, but we have already pumped in so many resources to ensure the possibility of such a landing that it would have been enough for both the Su-57 and the Armata to be brought to mind.

    Weak, the Typhoon does not pull on the next "killer of aircraft carriers".

    The main thing is that there is a sense and real help from this "device". If saving lives becomes the norm, then everything is justified.

    In fact, for the Airborne Forces, the BMM-D "Traumatism" has long been created - an armored medical vehicle for equipping medical units of airborne units. Created on the basis of the BTR-MD armored personnel carrier (Shell).
    The main function of BMM-D is to search for and evacuate the crippled from the battlefield and from various foci of destruction. It is also possible to provide first aid during the evacuation process. The machine allows you to operate in various difficult weather conditions, also in difficult-to-pass places. To facilitate the extraction of crippled from armored objects and inaccessible places of the terrain (crevices, ravines, etc.), it is equipped with loading and unloading devices, a winch, a crane-boom. BM can be used by the doctor's team as a mobile dressing room. The crew of the car is four (BMM-D1) and 5 (BMM-D2) people.
    Modifications:
    BMM-D1 - The armored sanitary transporter is designed to search for, collect and remove the crippled from the battlefield and centers of mass sanitary losses with the provision of first aid to them. In the BMM-D1 hull there are 6 places for transporting injured lying (+2 sitting, or seven lying + one sitting), or eleven places for sitting (+1 in the stern on reclining armor).
    BMM-D2 - The armored vehicle of the battalion's medical platoon was created to carry out measures for the provision of first aid or first doctor's aid according to urgent certificates. Equipped with a frame tent for 6 injured people.
    BMM-D3 - Armored medical dressing vehicle of the Airborne Forces. Based on an elongated seven-wheel chassis.

      Our military research institutes and military-industrial complex do not like to produce something in series, preferring endless R&D - when the product is only on paper, it is easier to show off, habitually crowing about another "non-world analogs".

    - Why, for such machines, brigades must be staffed ... The military doctors were dispersed!

    Of course, for the landing and the MP, the crane is a necessary piece, and let the customers and the designers suck its performance characteristics to the very bones.
