Ukrainian BTR-4E suspended with floats was dropped into the water from the "Svatovo" boat

39

The state concern "Ukroboronprom" has published a video of tests of an armored personnel carrier with improved characteristics. The Ukrainian BTR-4E, weighted with floats, was dropped into the water from the Svatovo landing craft of the Ukrainian Navy.


This was reported by the press service of Ukroboronprom.

BTR-4M for the Indonesian Navy was equipped with such floats. This "device" is necessary because of the large draft of the combat vehicle, the body of which is almost completely immersed in water.

An armored personnel carrier equipped with special floats was tested not far from the coast. The result is said to have been successful: the APC did not sink ...

BTR-4E skillfully overcomes any obstacle, even if it is a body of water.

- proudly informed the press service of "Ukroboronprom".

The footage appeared in several Ukrainian publications at once. One of the readers, having watched the video, noticed that "somehow these floats do not really help."


As for the BTR-4M, purchased by Indonesia for its marines, after the delivery of a trial batch of five armored personnel carriers, they refused further purchases.

BTR-4E is the development of Ukrainian engineers and is supplied to the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard.

    Are the floats hollow? As it should be? So that from one or two holes become ballast tanks? laughing
    And the impression is that it is contraindicated to shoot afloat. He drew a couple of liters of water into the barrel while leaving the ramp.

      See how the snorkel is positioned. The enemy should be strictly in the center

      1. Floats can be filled with foam; 2.Shell made of self-tightening rubber for floats; 3. Air under pressure ... constant air supply by the compressor (as in the "bullet-proof" tires of military vehicles ...); 4. Coalescer ... (when "in contact" with air it becomes solid ...

        I will answer in the same order:
        1. Floats can start with many things. So about hollow floats, if you didn't understand, there was sarcasm. 2. Self-tightening rubber casing is unlikely to withstand water pressure. 3. Air under pressure laughing You think this box of dried fruits contains a compressor with a capacity of 3-5 cubic meters. air per minute? And this is the minimum. Again, the water pressure, plus the huge likelihood of a situation where one hole is under water, the second is above. 4. Coagulator laughing in contact with air ... Under water ... Apparently with the help of a personal snorkel hi

      Yes, if at landing they shoot at least from 5,45, then instead of additional buoyancy, there will be additional ballast)))

      "It" will sink!

      It is about this "it".
      The product of the gloomy Ukrainian genius!
      Water cannons dangled from the outside, ground clearance like that of a SUV, a tower the size of a garbage container - how can a normal, but outdated Soviet car be mutilated?
      This is not Bucephalus, this is Guano Bucephalus!

    Honestly, how many I went afloat, but I have not seen this. Painfully deep this "Bucephalus" buries itself, and the wave-reflecting shield does not save. There is almost no visibility through the front windows ... It is not for nothing that the driver's triplex sticks out on the roof, like on an infantry fighting vehicle. Otherwise, he won't see anything at all. Not sure he is some kind of "floating", the nose is heavy. And the pipe "snorkel", well, they could not place it behind the tower, so that it would not interfere with the shooting

    Most likely there is a translation error here, since according to Wikipedia:In 2007, the boat took part in the international military exercises Sea Breeze, during which it successfully landed paratrooper at the Tendou Sleeping Range, therefore, I assume that this boat "Svatovo" was hung with floats ...

      Aha! You also noticed this phrase! good drinks To be honest, after watching videos with floating "Bucephalus" - I came to a firm conclusion: I personally would prefer to force the "water barrier" on anything and even to swimthan in this trough!

        If you look at the shooting from the inside, then the first 15 seconds. the impression that the car has already sunk or is swinging overturned in the water.

    In the USSR, before the war, when there were still no armored personnel carriers, let alone floating ones, they solved the issue of forcing water obstacles with light tanks by hanging two small pontoons (floats) on the sides. And in Ukraine it is called an armored personnel carrier "with improved characteristics", isn't it strange? But probably the main thing is

    Poplovki means to overcome water obstacles overloaded armored personnel carrier Sitting on the brush, the center of gravity also lets you know the combat module In general, they seem to be tested with floats and draw a conclusion, maybe add more

      Didn't notice either. But it is not important. It is more patriotic that they are, even if invisible.

    The degradation of Ukrainian industry is evident. Maybe they do not suffer and immediately switch to the production of swords, shields, bows, trebuchets, rams, loincloths and generals' nose rings?

    In fact - with the exception of the engine - the car is very decent. Alas! All the same, KB Morozov is still a Soviet school. The armored hulls, by the way, were digested, the ones that went to the Armed Forces of Ukraine - one of them had to be examined and even taken for a ride. Engine-branded Mr. from Malyshev. Crackling and moody!

    Failure to follow instructions. Before installing the snorkel, the tower must be turned back. To immediately hit on these (here 40 lines of text from the boatswain's dictionary), which pushed you into the water!
