The footage got a new Chinese MLRS based on Humvee


A recent exercise conducted by the PLA in northeastern China has captured footage of a new demining vehicle mounted on a truck chassis.

The new Chinese product is based on a licensed copy of the American Humvee SUV, which is produced in China under the Dongfeng EQ2050 brand. It has 16 guides for 130 mm ammunition. According to the 21AAR edition, the shells are designed to defuse mines and eliminate obstacles in the path of troops.

Apparently, the new machine was created within the framework of the concept embodied in the Type 762A product (GSL-131). This crawler-mounted MLRS is equipped with 24 guides with 253-mm ammunition installed to open a minefield. The new car-based model is essentially a lighter version of the GSL-131 and is most likely intended for the highly mobile units of the Chinese army.

India, which periodically conflicts with China over disputed territories, relies on giving its tanks self-demining capabilities. The country's Ministry of Defense has ordered 1,5 thousand trawls for the T-90S / SK MBT from the British company Pearson Engineering. At the same time, the production of this equipment will be carried out at local facilities. As stated, the British trawl will ensure the safe movement of tanks while maintaining high mobility.

        I completely agree. In it only the Cummings engine is licensed, and the rest is all stubborn.

      Not just like that ...
      On the net you can find a photo of the period of Operation Shock and Awe (2003) on the invasion of Iraq
      , an American mine-clearing vehicle based on the "Abrams" with a forced-nailed Soviet KMT-7 track-and-roller mine sweep.

      It was forced - because the standard American trawls showed extremely low efficiency and survivability.

        The Ministry of Defense of the country has ordered from the British company Pearson Engineering 1,5 thousand trawls for MBT T-90S / SK

        A strange choice. It was more logical to order trawls complete with T-90

        In addition, the knife trawl shown in the photo is of little use for stony ground.

      You tell this to the Americans - who licked all their mine sweepers from the Soviet ones.

    at high speed, there will be passes in any way ... and not all ammunition, even IEDs, react to the trawl, there are very "cunning products" in those parts where India and Pakistan and others: "they share the skin, ... bear "

    In the mountains, I think he will be able to show himself well, plus guidance on the drone will turn out so very well. I think they will quickly do the minirso option.

    In the United States, in the last century, an MLRS was created to eliminate minefields (30 guides ... 127 mm ... "aerosol" eras ...). But it was not adopted for service ... the MLRS did not live up to the hopes of the Americans!

    On Friday, the American carmaker General Motors announced that it has signed a final agreement with China's Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co (Sichuan Tengzhong) to sell it the Hummer brand.

    Under the terms of the agreement, Tengzhong will acquire the Hummer brand, trademark and intellectual property rights. All existing contracts with Hummer dealerships will remain in effect. The parties did not disclose the price of the deal, but, according to Bloomberg, it was about $ 150 million, despite the fact that during its bankruptcy proceedings, GM estimated the value of this brand at $ 500 million.

    Recall, a preliminary agreement on the sale of Hummer was signed by GM and Tengzhong in June this year.

    The Chinese made the right decision - to buy up unprofitable automakers with well-known names. Thus, they get their hands on the technological base, and ready-made, established production facilities, and product distribution networks and established brands.

    I wonder why you didn't buy a trawl from the Russian Federation? Did they carry out comparative tests of these trawls? I would like to see the results, why they turned out to be better
