The VPK company has developed a project of a new snow and swamp-going vehicle based on MT-LB

A new civilian multipurpose off-road vehicle based on the MT-LB and MT-LBu military tractors has been developed by specialists from the Military Industrial Company (MIC). This was reported on the official website of the company.


According to the head of the military-industrial complex Alexander Krasovitsky, the company has developed a program for the modernization of MT-LB, as a result of which a military tractor turns into a civilian snow and swamp vehicle. It is emphasized that the modernization is carried out with the help of Russian components produced by the company itself and its partners.

The modernization implies the installation of a new comfortable cab with a capacity of up to 6 people, a new domestic engine with a capacity of 450 hp. instead of the 240-strong, standing on the MT-LB. A modern transmission with a continuously variable steering mechanism of domestic production is also installed. The tractor is equipped with a cargo platform with a tailgate.

With a carrying capacity of 4-5 tons, the new snow and swamp vehicle will retain the ability to overcome water obstacles by swimming.

The MT-LB military tractors created in Soviet times are one of the most common types of armored vehicles still used in various industries. Today in Russia there are more than 7 thousand units of MT-LB, mostly already exhausted. Conversion into a civilian snow and swamp vehicle will give these machines a second life.

The full-scale sample of the new cross-country vehicle will be presented by the military-industrial complex at the international military-technical forum "Army-2021", which will be held in Kubinka at the end of August.

Note that in our country, attempts have already been made to convert the MT-LB tractors into a civilian version, but all upgrades were carried out in a single copy without the prospect of mass production.

    It is clear that we have great open spaces, there are more directions than roads !!! But as it is necessary to build roads, MANY ROADS!

        Not everywhere, this is understandable ... there are enough places where they are really needed, but they are NOT!

      And for such a construction, these machines are also needed. someone should go first on the road. In addition, there is the Arctic and Antarctica, where they can also be used.

        Obviously, their main operation is primarily planned just in the Arctic regions. In winter, there you can still somehow rinse the winter roads, and during the spring-summer-autumn period, when there are swamps and lichen with dwarf birch around, this technique will be indispensable. yes

      They are also building a lot, but the volume of construction will last for decades, if not for centuries. They will build the highway to Chukotka for years. To Kamchatka too. The distances are enormous. A significant part of the territory has no roads at all, because the population is small. And you need to get there, because the minerals are there. And then there are thousands of motalygs that need to be changed in the army, and even more in warehouses. It’s a reasonable thing to do - to remake these windmills and put them into civilian circulation. Rosneft, Gazprom and other companies, and residents of remote areas will come in handy. If it is still inexpensive, then in some places they can even replace vehicles.

        Where do you dream of the road to Kamchatka? Are you not a Crimean? In Dzhankoy, a one-ship man lives ....... We are old ...

      When you build a LOT of roads, you will need a LOT of money to maintain them. Without this, the road will turn into pit asphalt in 5 years, and in 8 years into a dirt road. If you can deliver something or someone somewhere by steamer, or better by train (quite if not, then by plane) - then this is exactly what you need to do, and not build highways. Enough and primers.

        If it is permafrost, there is generally a problem with asphalt, in a year everything may sink and float away)))

      Do you consider to embed side observation windows into MTLB an achievement of KhTZ, worthy of renaming MTLB into KhTZ-10?

        Most likely this is a further development of the MTLB tadpole
        In my time for the north, it was a great car. And with a new engine, a spacious cab and a larger payload, it's just great. And it doesn't matter what it's called now

    "a new domestic engine with a capacity of 450 hp instead of the 240-horsepower one on the MT-LB" .. hence the weight was increased, which is quite significant, because there is no point in high power with a small mass ..

      Of course not
      the armored body was removed and the mass increased?

      I also don’t understand why there is a 450hp diesel. and why 240 is there like 310hp. It was.

        MT-LB in the standard version carried only people and a little cargo. The new version has a large cabin that does not look like a tin + a decent body (5 tons of cargo). You cannot remove the armor from the tractor much, since it is not mounted, but load-bearing. That is, it can still be removed from above by replacing it with stiffening ribs, but the rest of the body should be left native to him.
        In general, a car with a load and people in weight will be heavier than the original version and a more powerful engine is right here.

          and one more thing: new psaltery and new transmission, preferably new ...! laughing wink and then - up to 5 tons., so-and-so a good increase in mass ...

      and also potential problems with weight distribution, with drives and tracks
      they will bend quickly and wear out, and the permeability will decrease
      What are the brains of these under-engineers? Or did the managers decide?

      consequently, we increased the mass, and at what it is quite significant, because there is no point in high power with a small mass ..

      Most likely, they increased the carrying capacity and cross-country ability. I don’t think replacing the engine "significantly" increased the mass. And the armor must have been removed.

      A more powerful engine does not always mean more mass. Sometimes it even happens the other way around.

    And if there is no price with kung, many will use it beyond the Urals.
    The main thing is the real price tag, the car has already been worked out, a more comfortable modification is needed.

    And why not make such a modernization with those MT-LBs that remain in service with the army?

    Nothing good will come of it. Too heavy "matalyga". Even without the top armor plate.
    This is how a similar alteration looks like:

    Real lifting capacity is 1,5 tons.
    More powerful than 240 hp the engine leads only to an increase in speed only on hard surfaces, an increase in fuel consumption and the only way to tear jibs.
    You need to lighten the machine. Put the gusky in the lungs.
    Moreover, everything has already been invented. Including with us.

    that's the phrase to start with ...
    and then all sorts of ideas, like:
