Modernization of the Dozor-B armored vehicle is being completed in Ukraine

17

In February of this year, the modernization of the Dozor-B armored vehicle is being completed in Ukraine. The work is carried out by the Kharkiv Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering named after A.A.Morozov.


Now the modernization of the Dozor-B tactical combat wheeled vehicle is at the final stage before launching it into production. Now its updated version will be able to force water obstacles by swimming.

Today we manufacture at our own expense a sample for qualification tests.

- said the general designer of the KMDB Vladimir Zhadan.

The enterprise plans to complete all works this month. After that, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine will decide how many Dozor armored vehicles will be ordered for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as at which factories and in what modification they will begin to be produced this year.

The creation of a floating version of Dozor-B by order of the Ukrainian military was announced in February last year by Deputy Defense Minister for Armament Oleksandr Mironyuk.


Dozor-B is a light armored vehicle of Ukrainian production with a 4x4 wheel arrangement. Over the 17 years since the appearance of the first experimental model of this technique, it has become the object of numerous ridicule because of its poor quality - primarily due to the use of steel, which did not meet the standards of use for armored vehicles. For this, the wits in social networks even nicknamed the armored vehicle "Shame-B".

        The official website of the bureau has a section "Modernization", "Dozor-B" I did not find there. But, he was found in the "Development" section.

      Rather, the BTR-40, but for them it is not important. it is important to declare your own development and subsequent modernization.

    According 17 leSince the appearance of the first experimental model of this technique, it has become the object of numerous ridicule due to its low quality
    It is not clear then why the chief designer should report that the modification is on final stage? Do it, run it in (test it), then listen to criticism for another 17 years, and only then report on the new modification.

      Well, if the bottom is bent by a "cylinder", then it was necessary to prescribe the power of the exploded explosive under the bottom in the terms of reference, and not remove the 152mm shell burst. There is a discrepancy somewhere among the customers - most likely in cost
      mortars for some reason look in one direction ..
      vertical and horizontal aiming handles to the machine gun from the armored personnel carrier, and the centering from the outside is broken - the box is on the side, the machine gun on the edge of the turret shoulder strap hangs down - what efforts to apply for guidance is not clear. The gunner's seat is also attached to the bottom, and not to the turret - it will break his back in half on a slope
      - the infantry in the trunk can not really observe anything
      - the car is called Dozor, but which of the commander's observation means is not clear
