        No, the external suspension is easy and the compartment with weapons in the helicopter itself.
        UAZ climbs calmly.

        Buggy 4-6 people must fit in, maybe the roof will have to be removed. But this is literally 5 minutes. Something like Chaborz M-6.

        Or on the basis of the Niva, its prototype guard lieutenant colonel of the Airborne Forces A.V. Lebed. I did it myself.

          A multi-fuel motorcycle with a weight of 150 kilos. An article of chaborza type - about 2 tons / 4-6 riders. 13 "mopeds" "fit" into two tons.
          Pulling a group car on the "car" is a good show-off, for firing in motion on the ground is a waste of bq into the air.
          Covered with a "copper basin" "auto" turns riders into pedestrians. Wholesale.

      For an SUV, automatic transmission is somehow problematic. Although the Americans ran in the automatic transmission on Hummers.

        An American gets his license at the age of 16, having entered the army at the age of 17, he simply does not know how to drive a mechanic, there are almost no cars on a mechanic. To retrain a dunce from a machine gun to a manual box is still a pleasure. And the machine is very careful about the engine.

          Where we fight there are deserts, semi-deserts and mountains.
          Afghanistan, Syria, Central Asia, Africa. There, such machines are a priority.
          This is not the armament of motorized riflemen, such off-road vehicles are created for light airborne infantry, special forces, airborne forces.

      They cover with a tarpaulin. They have such cars with WWII went.
      I must say that military vehicles have the height of asceticism. Everything is in tarpaulin - the seat, the cover of the car. However, we have the same UAZs.

          The identity is not entirely clear. The angle can be calculated like this. that when the air moves up, it will rise.
          I remember driving in the Urals (motorcycle), got a splash in the forehead with a May beetle. And not sickly so blasted and the speed was no more than 40 km / h

            And in the southern countries, not only May beetles fly, but also quite poisonous and large bikaras ... not only will it fly in the forehead, it will also fly, killing myself on the forehead ... something rubbish on vacation .. - for a week the tumor went down and hurt like hell ..

              And even if in the column, yes, in any case, if there is a car in front from under the wheels of which pebbles will fly.
              On the other hand, I do not think that the developers did not foresee this fact. Moreover, the pictures and videos are likely a prototype. They have not yet entered the series, and as far as it is clear from the material, a decision has not yet been made on its adoption.

                Not. there will be no windshield ..) Firstly, you will have to install the glass, you will have to install the windshield wipers .., and secondly - there every private on the helmet has glasses stretched .. - so they will ride in them .. It's good about the column .. for a couple of hours of driving along the dusty off-road, the driver and passengers will be so powdered - for a week the sand on his teeth will creak and pour from the trousers and sleeves ..))). And then clean the weapon too ..

    Diesel, 2.8L, 500Nm - yes, you can plow on it!
    And by weight it is far from an iron. Nice machine. This would be taken as a model!

      I think a 4-6 seater, buggy-like SUV is better. That would climb into the Mi-8 together with the landing force and weapons.
      SUV as in this news, the Mi-8 will only take on the external suspension.

        With all due respect to the Mi-8: I understand that this helicopter is the workhorse of all of Russia and the other is probably never foreseen at all, but limiting the parameters of new technology to the capabilities of devices developed 60 years ago is a somewhat dead-end path.
        In addition, when it comes to cars, there is never too much space, there is always something to grab, from water to b / c and equipment.

          In the sense of? This is how the United States does the same. UH-60 under 50, CH-47 the same 60 years. Nobody is going to write them off, they think to start making replacement helicopters no earlier than the 30s, and then everything is written with a pitchfork on the water.
          The Mi-8 can take the ISV on a suspension and a compartment with a weapon inside, with the UH-60 such a trick will not work. This requires a heavy CH-47.
          In general, there is not the slightest reason to change the Mi-8. Of course, you need to modernize, which is what they are doing. It may be worth expanding the line, such as the light Ansat, a helicopter between the Mi-8 and Mi-26.

      Japanese Nissan "Terrano" and American brother Ford "Mistral" with TD-27 diesel engine and automatic transmission are considered very reliable machines, more reliable than mechanics. The characteristics are quite similar for these machines.

    EMNIP, in the Union relied on an armored personnel carrier or an armored personnel carrier ... And here? It would be better to distribute the bike, it protects it from mines and other things.
    And they forgot about ecology! Where are the solar panels ??? They completely got out of hand, ignore the order of the NATO secretary general! sad

    Will it even run into what thread is homemade and what will happen? An open body, therefore, a blast wave and fragments will get enough to the crew. Why is the concept of a passenger car persistently used for military equipment? Moreover, the machine gunner is located in the back in the middle. Why not make an armored capsule with a driver and a gunner located one behind the other, and the infantry with their backs to each other further so that they are covered, but they could instantly get enough sleep and lie down by throwing the side back? Wheels (at least 6 by the way) move to the side beyond the projection of the body, so that when blown up, only the wheel tore off. At the same time, the frontal projection of the machine will become minimal, because, for example, any farmer who first changed the hoe to RPG7 will get into the face of the Hammer.
