In the Czech army, UAZ 469 SUVs will begin to be replaced with Japanese pickups this summer

63

In the Czech Republic, research continues to replace army SUVs with new vehicles. First of all, the Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic is considering options for replacing UAZ 469 vehicles, which are in the car park of the country's armed forces. Also, the Czech command is going to replace the Land Rover Defender cars.


It became known that the main option for replacing Soviet UAZs and British Land Rovers is the Japanese Toyota Hilux SUV.

According to the latest data, the first batch of these cars should go to the armed forces of the Czech Republic in the summer of this year. Prague notes that "Japanese SUVs have passed a number of control tests for use in various conditions."

From the report:

Now they are awaiting the final stage of testing, after which Hilux will begin to be supplied to the Czech army.

It is noted why the Ministry of Defense chose Japanese pickups.

As it turns out, they are planned to be used not only for the transportation of personnel, but also for use as vehicle weapons carriers. It is planned to install machine guns, as well as use for towing mortars or anti-aircraft installations (ZU-23-2).

Czech users point out that the local industry could create its own version of the army SUV. However, an important nuance must be taken into account here: the Czech car industry has not actually belonged to the Czech Republic for a long time. And the decisions to re-equip and change the vehicle fleet are made, apparently, not at all in Prague ...

It should be recalled that UAZs are going to be replaced in the Ukrainian army as well. But there are no funds for Japanese pickups ...

      the news is that the army of the NATO member country is still armed with the ZU-23-2.
      I think that in a modernized version.
      But still.

        A friend has a Gaz-69, a shaggy year of release. Loaded and with a trailer, he goes along the roads broken by lumberjack trucks. True, I got stuck a couple of times, but out of arrogance, not because of the car. On the way it is being repaired "on the knee". Standing up because of the naughty sensor / connector will not work. In general, there is no need to stomp behind the tractor. With proper care, it lives for a long time, despite the brutal exploitation.

        Cross-country ability is very good while driving. But it is being repaired all the time, and if during the trophy-raid competitions you hear the sounds of metal striking metal in the forest, then 99% that someone is fixing the UAZ.

        The UAZ-469 has a high "psychological" cross-country ability, it is not a pity for it and you can "press on the floor" all the way.

              Humvee and Hamer are different. In comparison, the military and civilian Gelendvagen are twins. Another example is Land Rover Defender. And the same Niva was also created with an eye on military orders. I mean that this niche does not imply any special machine and one version will suit both military and civilians.

                  I read that Niva was offered as a car for senior officers, but it did not grow together. In those days, it was almost impossible to get UAZs for personal use with us - only to the military and organizations. They began to fall into their hands after 1990. And before that, private Volga was registered smile

                Again, no. Even the same UAZ for the army was a different performance than for the national economy. Shielded cables to the spark plugs are off the table. There is no car that will suit everyone. The civilian demands for economy and ergonomics, the military for reliability and maneuverability. These requirements sometimes contradict each other. And it's not for nothing that the military version is always more expensive than a classmate.

                In 1996, in the southern regions of Russia, they began to hijack white Niva, namely white ones. And then they appeared in Grozny, with the rear door removed. It was Basayev who put his militants in these stolen Niva and broke into Grozny on August 6 along secondary roads, bypassing checkpoints and blocking the main city facilities. Niva turned out to be a very convenient car for capturing the city, a kind of cart.

            Judging by the won competition, yes. Normally an hour of a Pole is much less than a German in Germany. Unlike us, military purchases in the Czech Republic are much more transparent. If we have a standard hour for Toyota, 25-30 percent less for repairs than for Folts. and God forbid the Fords. At the same time, perhaps the Helixes will not be of Japanese assembly.

        The amarok is made of foil if compared to the high. Plus, there is no need to invent anything for Highlax - rear locking is in the state, front locks on the market - even an expensive Australian ARB, even a cheap Chinese HF, suspension lifts, whatever you want to eat. A logical choice. They don't need to drive them along Czech tracks.

      Replacing the windshield on such an SUV will cost about 40 thousand rubles at our service, they probably have a higher price. In general, Toyota's all service is relatively inexpensive, if we take German or English car brands.
      I do not see anything surprising in the fact that the Czechs abandoned the UAZ - for Europe it is not needed, and a Japanese SUV will suit them.

    the Czech auto industry does not actually belong to the Czech Republic for a long time

    Not for that the Czech Republic was admitted to the EU to keep the industry in it.
    UAZs are going to be replaced in the Ukrainian army as well. But there are no funds for Japanese pickups ...

    This means that the Ukrainian army will re-equip from Soviet UAZs to Czech ones.

      Industry in the Czech Republic, unlike many other countries of Central and Eastern Europe, is largely preserved. It just belongs (especially to large enterprises) partially to foreign owners. Small and medium-sized businesses, including small industrial enterprises, are mainly in the hands of the Czechs.

    It should be recalled that UAZs are going to be replaced in the Ukrainian army as well.
    But they will gladly accept from the Czech Republic not only Land Rovers, but also the same UAZs ...
    Czech users point out that the local industry could create its own version of the army SUV.
    Well, if only "Tatra", but this is how much money needs to be invested in it ... Could Skoda and its "Karok" and "Kadiak" earn some money ... but apparently the price is not interesting

    On VO, three months ago there was already a news article about the plans of the Czech Ministry of Defense to replace the UAZ-469 with a Toyota HiLuxe Pickup.
    Where in the back of the Hilux ZU 23-2 to tulle? Will it fit? Reinforced springs must be installed back.
    Better Tundra with an open cargo platform.
    The photo / video shows "barmaley" on Toyota Land Cruiser 76 (pickup), it will be a bigger class.

    Today's Toyota HiLuxe Pickups are not as reliable as the early 90s.

      Modern UAZs are not UAZs of the 70s of military acceptance. Hilax today, unfortunately, is much stronger and more reliable.

        Compared to modern Hunters and Patriots, the Hilux Pickup is stronger and more reliable. In comparison with classmates MMC L200, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max, N. Navarra does not stand out, it has its drawbacks.

    And the decisions to re-equip and change the vehicle fleet are made, apparently, not at all in Prague ...

    Some sort of heresy, but where is it accepted in Tokyo or something, or London and Washington indicated the purchase of Japanese cars, incl. instead of English?

    But you can even shove a howitzer into a Toyota - it has been proven by the beards. True stabilization during the stalk and fire control there with the help of Allah, but nevertheless.
