Bundeswehr special operations forces transfer to buggy

Following the US special operations forces, the Bundeswehr made the decision to equip the German MTR with off-road buggies. According to the portal armyrecognition.com, the German military department has signed a contract for the supply of buggy-like vehicles based on the Polaris MRZR.


The German special operations forces will soon begin to receive special buggies based on the MRZR-D4. The version for the Bundeswehr will undergo a special adaptation, within which the cars will receive special equipment, details were not disclosed. In the basic version, the MRZR D4 is a four-seater buggy with a turbodiesel installed, as indicated by the letter "D" in the name. Rear-wheel drive car with the ability to connect all-wheel drive. With a mass of 952 kg, the machine has a carrying capacity of 680 kg. The cruising range is approximately 500 km.

At the first stage, the Bundeswehr will receive 65 vehicles, deliveries will begin in 2021. In total, the German Ministry of Defense ordered 148 buggies for the special operations forces. In addition to the machines themselves, the contract provides for the supply of spare parts, as well as training of personnel.

At the first stage, we ordered the construction of 65 vehicles. A total of 148 vehicles can be supplied under the contract. Delivery to the troops is scheduled for next year

- said Lieutenant Colonel Michael Bischof.

It is noted that due to their size and weight, off-road buggies are easily transported not only by military transport aircraft, but also by helicopters.

    Regression, however. From armored personnel carriers to buggies, then to motorcycles, bicycles, and will end up with cavalry? laughing

      Should end on foot legions, with all the ammunition on the shoulders hi
      And if in fact, it is not entirely clear where they are going to use the buggy.
      Not that Defense Minister Frau ... Bauer is itching to get involved in some military company on dense or sandy soil.

        I do not understand something. Are they in the Bundeswehr aware that they are leaving Afgan? laughing
        More like these buggies the Germans have nowhere to use. Are the states preparing a new war?

        hi
        Given the increase in the military budget, it is quite possible. Little victorious war ...

      There were no armored personnel carriers or infantry fighting vehicles in the MTR. Their tasks are different, as are the execution methods. But on Gelendvagens, special executions were dissected

        Gelendvagens of special design are the variant of armored personnel carriers. Now the MTR will be dissected by buggy, and then renamed the Winged Cavalry. laughing

      For the MTR, these are the cars "just right", and now laugh some more, Russian MTRs, they drive approximately similar ones, you also look soon they will become cavalrymen, huh? Budyonny and the 1st horse will be remembered. And while you laugh, catch the "sleeper".

          Sergey, with all due respect, I welcome your desire to laugh, but KSK Germany fought very well in Afghanistan, for example. where the terrain under the buggy is suitable, and where they are now climbing - God knows them. We bought it, so we need it.

            Am I arguing with this? On the contrary, let them release their warlike steam somewhere in fights with the barmaley.

                      Well, the crap apparently hit the woman in the head, Germany has already tried a couple of times in the XNUMXth century to talk from a "position of strength" with our country, though it didn't work out very well))

    Buggy is good. But the Buryat cavalry costs less money and more cross-country ability

      The SSOs somehow got good Can-Am StrikeM4, which they actively use even in SOCOM, are quite fresh. But all the paratroopers cannot get the equipment. And among their own only buggies from Ramzan.

    The recent battles in Karabakh perfectly confirmed the flawedness of this idea, you will still be replanted on carts.
