"Soldiers are obliged to abandon doubts about amphibians": in Indonesia, the Soviet PTS-10 was called "the pride of the Marines"

18

Indonesian marines took part in military maneuvers using PTS-10 landing vehicles. Despite their venerable age, the reviews about this technique were the most flattering.


The commander of the 1st Marine Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Mar Vishnu Shogo, called the PTS-10 [the Indonesian designation, meaning PTS] "the pride of the battalion" they are armed with.

The capabilities of the PTS-10 are incredible, this super-large machine is able to carry loads weighing up to 10 tons. In various exercises, the Marine Corps often uses this technique to transport Unimog / REO trucks and 105mm cannons.

- noted in the TNI edition.

As indicated, older technology such as the PTS-10 is still capable of proving its effectiveness, successfully coping with the tasks assigned to it - both on land and at sea.

Therefore, all soldiers are obliged to abandon their doubts about the amphibian.

- explained in the publication.

It is possible that we are talking about the increased suspicion of the Indonesian military to old technology, caused by the recent death of the submarine. The German-built Nanggala-402 submarine was commissioned in 1983 and sank on April 21 this year.

The Soviet PTS was created in 1961 on the basis of units and assemblies of the ATS-59 artillery tractor and tank T-54.

      Lieutenant Colonel Mar Vishnu Shogo named PTS-10 [Indonesian designation, meaning PTS]
      The predecessor of the PTS was the K-61 tracked transporter, a further development of the PTS-2. Modernization of PTS transporter PTS-M. In general, PTS-10 is a local name due to its carrying capacity of PTS - carrying capacity on water is 10 tons (with a buoyancy margin of 30%), for transportation by land 5 tons.

          Perhaps ... in fact, the PTS-M differed from the PTS in equipment: a filter-ventilation unit for a cabin with heated air in the cabin and a body, a roll cage with an awning, a set of sanitary equipment for 12 stretchers, a new radio station, a searchlight and a night vision device, etc. Although on this TCP (photo) there may be local alterations that erase external differences, up to .... something I do not recognize you in the make-up)))

      There was and is still PTS-3. It was produced at the Krasnoyarsk Shipyard .. An excellent machine. It is often seen in the Ministry of Emergency Situations.

        Yes, there is also PTS-3 ... I missed it by accident! PTS-3 is an improved PTS-2! But about the Emergencies Ministry ... there are doubts! I know that the Ministry of Emergencies is actively using PTS-M! It should be borne in mind that PTS-2 and PTS-3 were created on the basis of the T-64, which Russia abandoned; but which became the "national" tank of Ukraine! PTS-3 was developed in Lugansk ... No, I am not saying that PTS-2/3 are not available in Russia; but I heard that the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation relied on PTS-M ...

      PTS-M was developed at the Kryukov Carriage Works under the leadership of the chief designer E.E. Lenzius in 1961 on the basis of units and assemblies of the ATS-59 artillery tractor and the T-54 tank
      Produced at the Voroshilovgrad (now Lugansk) diesel locomotive plant "VZOR" (Voroshilovgrad plant named after the October Revolution)

      Whatever one may say, but pride arises and gratitude to the USSR. Here's how to get it back? Improved version based on past mistakes

    Indonesia is not the only country that uses old samples of Soviet military equipment and not only uses, but is also happy with them. This is what the Soviet quality mark means.

    "The old horse does not spoil the furrow." With regards to PTS, this is a very successful technique in terms of survivability.

    The mechanics-drivers said - the machine is heavy to operate .. - you get tired quickly. In general, the Indonesians have a lot of our military equipment ... and they speak very well of it and respect our president ..

      Well I do not know.
      On PTS-ah planetary gear, where the effort on the lever is minimal, as the gears are shifted. But if you take the GSP-55, there is an onboard clutch, that is, to turn, you need to brake the internal goose and the force on the lever is 7+ kg. There, you will definitely start pulling the levers on the march, and if the road is still winding, by the end of the march your hands fall away. Try sipping 7 kg dumbbells for half a day.

    Our president is respected all over the world by both friends and enemies, but only local poorly educated or stupid users of social networks who succumb to competent propaganda hate him. It is the bulk of the "promoters" of revolutions. Then the truth will sharply change - "We did not want that - we were against corruption" ...

    Soviet technology was sledge-resistant and foolish. For these Papuans just right. And they recently drowned non-Soviet equipment.
