Army buggies: ATVs with a wide range of capabilities

Automotive military equipment today is very diverse. Moreover, in our time we are talking not only about the usual army trucks for transporting personnel and cargo, not only about special-purpose armored vehicles or "command" UAZs, but also about very specific equipment. This technique, by the way, has managed to establish itself as useful and effective, including during quick operations with limited forces.


The conversation in this case is about the so-called buggy. These are often small, off-road vehicles that can perform a wide range of tasks with many capabilities. They are used as a means of prompt delivery of special forces to the operation site, for patrolling in difficult terrain (for example, border patrols in mountainous areas), as a means of urgent evacuation, and more.

Representatives of military buggies include Chaborz M-3 cars with a 1,6-liter gasoline engine. These small cars, which are classified as ATVs, were created by order of the RUS (Russian University of Special Forces), located in the Chechen Republic.

And these are far from the only representatives of the army buggy. Today, special military off-road vehicles have been developed and are being created to perform certain tasks in the Far North, including those with a ski version in the chassis structure.

How military buggies cope with off-road conditions, dirt, dust and other problems is described in the Military Acceptance plot on the Zvezda channel.

    Not the most high-tech sample, but it is also in demand, especially with a domestic engine. I am for it!

        Then you need an adequate price tag. And when Vesta costs 800 tr, and an inadequate Chevy Niva or a Patriot?
        We still do not have a diesel engine for passenger cars. Even the level of the mid-90s of Japan. You could buy a license 10 times. As they did in the UK.
        Our auto giants are accustomed to government subsidies.
        On a buggy jeep, you need to put a turbo diesel, even a Chrysler 2.5 liter from Sable, a French or Japanese suspension. And paint the metal as in Germany.
        PS: And putting a Nissan 1.6 liter on a military vehicle and asking for 2 million is ridiculous.

        Well, in principle, Porsche's kübelvagen is cheaper, in the series it has become cheaper than "tsundap" I cannot give exact numbers, but there was such a fact. Therefore, motorcycle technology in the Wehrmacht and began to decline.

          A BMW motorcycle is 3 times more expensive than a Kübelvagen, especially when the leading sidecar is made. Damn, in the Urals, it seems only at the end of the 70s that the wheelchairs were made leading, oh, how hard it is to pull the stuck Ural out of the mud, but in fact there was no all-terrain rubber. Yes, on bekhs and a carburetor, they sometimes put one, but we had a whistle with two, it is practically impossible to adjust.

    The first buggies appeared in the United States in the 1950s. For their manufacture, they usually used old, unused Volkswagen Beetle cars. From the diminutive form of the name Volkswagen "Beetle" - Volkswagen Bug, the word "buggy" - "bug" comes from.
    I myself first read about them in the "ZVO" in the early sixties. Then they were already accepted into service in the United States and South Africa, but in our country, as usual, they just now swelled. And what is this "Chechen auto", I know a lot about all sorts of Chechens, but I heard about "Auto" for the first time, does it even drive?
    Here is a photo of one of the first "swallows" of this type.

    Honestly, the "cornfield" base is the worst base one can think of for this kind of technique. By the way, there is no need to invent too much, we go and see what the top-5 Russian championship in trophy-raids drives and we stupidly copy. Plus, we get a car that drives not only on roads and hard grounds, but also in swamps and can float on water for some time. Seriously, if we take even the youngest class of TP1, then all this ponteous technique will not go further than the start.

    Equipment for the Russian Armed Forces, controversial. Probably good, as seasonal, for example, in the summer on the border with Kazakhstan or in Syria, to drive through the desert.

    In my opinion, it is no coincidence that the Chechens took up this direction. Although it needs to be improved in terms of simplification. During the times of Ichkeria, they used the tactics of short-term concentration to capture Grozny. As we know from what we have read, the special officers already knew that there were many militants in the city. And what if you use such a cheap car for instant concentration. Or rather, his kit. Cook the frame according to the attached sketch in the garage, on the street from the generators. The rest is expensive - everything is wearable. Before the action, welding the frame and installing 18 hp. engine - even smaller, hydraulic pump and 4 wheels with hydraulic motors. Rapid concentration and advancement in cars, fight, retreat, then dismantling somewhere in the foothills, leaving the frame and taking out expensive units until the next frame is made. Yes, in the 90s there were many old cars, but these may not always be at hand, depending on the theater of action. If it becomes possible not to dismantle, please, you can continue to drive. True, that's how many people wear it, so many and the little car must carry. and this is a man 7: an engine, a pump, 4 wheels and a hydraulic motor, two tanks: oil and fuel with pipes and fasteners. Even maybe 8 will have to. Although pipes and fittings can also be thrown away. By and large, only the diesel engine, pump and hydraulic motors are of value. The manufacturer must provide drawings, as well as options for improvements: seats, suspension kit and ad infinitum.
