Armored Vehicle SBA-60-K2 "Damask" (photos added)

The main purpose of the armored vehicle is to transport personnel of special and military units. Additional features - the installation of various types of weapons and equipment. The armored vehicle is able to perform the assigned tasks on any roads and terrain. It is possible to use “Bulat” both in the conditions of the Far North and in hot desert conditions.

The armored vehicle was created on the basis of KAMAZ using units and assemblies from KAMAZ-5350. Armored protection received: the perimeter of the cabin, roof, bottom, engine compartment, cabin (laminated protective glass).

The body of the Bulat SBA was designed by Moscow engineers of Zashchita with the use of improved armor providing protection against 7.62mm bullets having a heat-strengthened core. Armor class VI according to GOST Р 50963 – 96. The bottom of the multi-layer machine, together with a special body shape, provide the armored vehicle with mine protection when a mine is detonated with an explosive equal to four kilograms of TNT.

To increase the survivability of the personnel in the car, the designers developed a corporate design of the seats. The principle of operation of chairs in the undermining of a mine separation of a person sitting in it from the effects of a mine explosion The landing module accommodates up to ten people in full gear.

Rear balancing and front dependent suspension - spring execution. Transmissions and transfer - mechanical type. Drum brakes, pneumatic with ABS.

Since the beginning of June 2012, one copy of the SBA-60-K2 Bulat has been transferred to the Sakhalin OMON unit in the North Caucasus on a business trip by the management of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation in Sakhalin Region, where it is undergoing various tests.

    Greetings, Klim. Tell me, where should the motor be? The trend of recent years is precisely that the engine can move forward, including on the obt and other armored vehicles. So the crew receives additional chances of survival. The machine is cool, Now I’ll break in and be a worthy competitor to the Wolves, only cheaper (although there is no price yet). You give more armored vehicles, good and different.

    The only thing that "strains" is the variety of "transportation" equipment and the resulting problems with repair. Although military equipment should be "different", as denkastro claims, it should also be unified.
    However, the possibility of overcoming ditches and rivulets would not hurt this object either. Today it is "police", and tomorrow?

    Korvin, That's right, this is it. Only when I saw him he still had a spare tire on the hood (closed the review). I was explained that it’s only being transported not under its own power so fasten. I still can’t understand how this miracle can withstand a blast of 20kg. TNT? This is what kind of compression blow should be on the crew? I think over time the guys from the riot police will comment on the features of exploitation.
    understudyI welcome it, Henry. You are absolutely right about unification. I also consider it extremely necessary. However, if our manufacturer provides a wide choice, the final consumer will only benefit from this (soldier). But unification is one of the components of the TOR of the Ministry of Defense. Products participating in tenders must comply with TK. Regards.

    The Protection Corporation has somehow ennobled the Kamaz Bulat. But at 20 kg under the bottom it is hard to believe what it is holding. Maximum 6 kg. But everyone will show the state tests. IMHO of course.

On the contrary, it gives these armored personnel carriers a kind of peculiar charm and zest ... But now what concerns its practical use. That is to say about his niche in the armament system ... For the Internal and Border Troops, all kinds of OMON and SOBR, as well as special forces, the GUIN is quite suitable. Just..

    I agree that if they start to mass-produce it, it’s only for the best both for the manufacturer and for those who operate it ... as I understand it, the Ministry of Internal Affairs uses it more ... mainly in kakaz so the inability to overcome water barriers to swim is not a very serious drawback to overcome fording at a shallow depth of about 1.5 meters is most likely ensured, but swimming over mountain rivers still doesn’t work out - it’ll blow it over ... so it’s better not to swim but it’s well protected (I sincerely hope that these are not just words Cove) an armored car than a floating but cardboard armored personnel carrier or even a huge armored URAL (I don’t understand the name I remember that in the back of an armored capsule hidden by an awning) is the dream of calculating an RPG or ATGM.

        I completely agree with this, but not the fact that they buy equipment for these reasons. I read the answers of our factories on the issue of the backlog of protection: there is also armor, the use of which with the same protection makes the equipment easier (or better protection with the same weight), there is also ceramic armor, which, unlike foreign, does not lose its properties in the cold, There are also aramite fabrics, which in their parameters are at least no worse than imported ones - but the Moscow Region does not notice this point blank.
        They rule kickbacks (I see no other explanation).

        BTR-152 - an armored personnel carrier created on the basis of components and assemblies of a ZIS-151 truck. Adopted in 1950. The armored personnel carrier had an open welded load-bearing housing. It was in serial production from 1950 to 1955. ZIL-157 was mass-produced since 1958, so there could not be a base for the 152nd.

    some compare with BTR 40, 152, but this is not so bad .. I recall that those BTR were made by people who directly participated in the Second World War and customers in min. defense too .. they all have a fresh memory and they knew what they were doing !! and for examples of armored personnel carriers 40 were made on the experience of using American armored personnel carriers (set on landwise) in battles.
    returning to armored personnel carrier 60, 70 80 (armored personnel carrier 90 does not matter, this is a wheeled infantry fighting vehicle) that we have .. there is no protection (at least not bigger than it was) the landing, too .. it didn’t get better (who at least got out of armored personnel carrier 60, 70 understand me on the go) with the same success you can use an armored truck (which is now done in the Caucasus)
    In general, for me it is a good idea to make tested things in a new version.
    I recall that the armored personnel carrier is intended for the transport of troops to the battlefield! , and on the battlefield soldiers support the BMP.

    infantrymen on mined roads while protecting against small arms
    weapons, and everything else is secondary! For this, the experience of South Africa is indispensable!
    People must be placed as high as possible above the point of explosion and
    protect "V" with a reflector!
    And on the battlefield, as low as possible, silhouette and armor reservation,
    as strong as possible!

Isn’t it really easier to divide the glass into 2 parts and equip it with an armored shutter ?! Firstly, it’s easier technologically, and secondly, it’s easier to operate. And as to whether he can withstand or not withstand a blast of 20 kg - I absolutely do not believe it!
