The Russian army has been equipped with tank trucks that can withstand a 7,62 mm bullet

The Russian army received fuel tankers capable of withstanding a direct hit from a Kalashnikov assault rifle. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov spoke about this in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.


According to the General of the Army, the new ATs-14-63501 fuel tanker was created using a special self-tightening polymer material that can withstand the hit of a 7,62mm Kalashnikov assault rifle bullet. The tank passed state tests and was accepted to supply the Russian army.

The tank truck is located on the KAMAZ-63501 8 × 8 chassis and can be operated at temperatures from -40 ° C to + 50 ° C.

The main purpose of the tanker is the transportation and short-term storage of fuel. In addition, it can refuel equipment. The filling mechanism provides simultaneous filling of four units of equipment at a speed of 600 liters per minute. The total volume of the tank is 14 m3.

Also, for the supply of the Fuel Service, a mass-produced refueling station was adopted, which allows refueling ten units of equipment at the same time.

The sample was developed in such a way that when working in tandem with the ATs-14-63501 tanker, refueling tank a company of 10 tanks in the area of ​​mass refueling of equipment will take only 10 minutes

- said the general.

Bulgakov added that the Ministry of Defense is currently continuing to test promising technical equipment that will soon be supplied to equip the Russian army.

    This is certainly not bad, the ambush of the times of early Afgan and the first Chechen war is no longer so scary, but from ATGM or "anti-material" in a modern manner is nothing.

      This is just a tanker truck, do you suggest installing KAZ, DZ and armor on it?)))

        I just note that ambushes with small arms are a thing of the past.

          There are not only ambushes, but also arty mortar fragments, etc.

            but also fragments from mortars, arts and so on.

            If the tanker has already come under shelling, then protection and even bulletproof armor will not help him much.

              It will help, not all the fragments are large and high-speed, and the losses from the DRG are 2% of the total losses, and the main losses from artillery.

                Here is the armored personnel carrier just specially created to resist such a threat as "accidental shelling", and now compare the "protection" of the tank and the armor (and weight) of at least 80s.

                Not familiar with statistics, where are they from? And does the statistics take into account the losses from the guidance of artillery and aviation by the DRG on the same fuel trucks?
                I basically don't mind
                the use of a special self-tightening polymer material that can withstand a 7,62 mm Kalashnikov assault rifle bullet
                but only if this measure does not significantly increase the weight and cost of the tank itself. Well, in modern conditions, this measure is ALREADY completely insufficient.

          The cab, as it was a cabover KamAZovskaya, remained the same. Who needs this barrel? It will leak out a little, it's okay. And people just sit under a tin roof. The only plus is 14 cubic meters. - this is a lot for a military AC.

        The enemy's RDGs can get closer and the so-called. strike with an anti-material rifle, even without ATGM.

          The field kitchen is much closer to the battle line, but for some reason it is not armored. You can't do without a kitchen too

          Unfortunately, supplying troops with fuel and ammunition is a matter of practice and experience. Usually, the refueling point of armored vehicles is organized at a considerable distance from the line of the alleged collision with the enemy (pre-field), or on an emergency basis during the battle at the discretion of the command, but in places where direct engagement by enemy forces and means is inaccessible or hampered by terrain folds and structures. As a rule, the refueling point should be heaped along the sides of each tanker, so that in the event of a detonation, it does not hit nearby vehicles and crew.
          Here we see the presence of armoring of tanks, which will 100% reduce the losses from the destruction of vehicles by the enemy, because Yes, shrapnel from mortar and artillery shells will not pierce tanks as they used to before.
          In war, luck also plays an important role. In this case, luck was helped a little, adding to the owners of luck the probability of avoiding death or surviving in case of defeat.

            And where did you even see a word about booking? The general said about the use of protection, which prevents fuel from leaking through holes and, as a result, reduces the likelihood of a fire .. But journalists, yes, have problems with their heads .. To write about "hit-resistant tanks" is rather ridiculous.

    The Russian army received fuel tankers capable of withstanding a direct hit from a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
    The main thing is that the troops would be saturated with such equipment so that the boys would have to burn less.

      I agree.
      The logistic support units of the regiment must have a reservation.
      In the division, partly for fuel and lubricants and the supply of BP.
      For muddiness and grubs, equipment from the national economy will also come down (you can also provide for the installation of removable shields there, for partial cover of the cabin).

    what
    (sideways remark)
    Cartridges / weapons using 7,62 mm bullets are different ...
    Yes, in the "mass consciousness" of everyday life, 7,62 mm bullets are faster and more often associated with AK / AKM than with PC or the same SVD, but the memories of RPD / RPK are embarrassingly tickling ...
