Tests of the Typhoon-VDV armored vehicle reached the final stage

53

The Russian Ministry of Defense is distributing a message on the progress of testing the latest technology for the Airborne Forces. We are talking about the Typhoon-VDV armored vehicle, which was originally created as airborne military equipment.

In the messages of the defense department it is said that the tests of the profile "Typhoon" are being completed in the Airborne Forces. This armored vehicle is reportedly capable of providing various types of tasks by airborne assault detachments and formations.

At the moment, the tests are going on as usual. After their completion, an analysis will be made and a decision will be made on mass deliveries of Typhoon-VDV armored vehicles to the Airborne Forces.

Recall that the commander of the Airborne Forces, General Andrei Serdyukov, last year announced the start of putting such airborne armored vehicles into service with the troops in 2021.

Typhoon-VDV has a single-volume armored hull. Combined protection corresponds to the 5th class. Such protection is able to save the crew when an explosive device detonates with a capacity of up to 4 kg of TNT under the bottom of the car.

Additional protection is associated with the installed special seats, which are distinguished by the function of energy absorption.
The armored car is equipped with a combat module based on a 30-mm automatic cannon. Also in the composition of the BM for the "Typhoon-VDV" includes a PKTM machine gun.

The total curb weight of the armored car is about 13500 kg. At the same time, the powerful engine allows it to accelerate to a speed of 100 km / h. Also, the armored vehicle can overcome the 1,5-m ford.

      Sorry for the "machine gunner's grumbling", but I was taught that 7,62mm Пwill take КAlashnikova Тankovy, does not have the "M" modification, in contrast to the "infantry" model PK (M) ...

      Not so long ago, by the way, they taught yes ... I missed something, and "PKTM" has already appeared?

              Yes, such an armored car for the Airborne Forces is like a dog's fifth leg. Patrolling, escorting convoys and reinforcing roadblocks is a profile task for the Airborne Forces! Yes, even if not the Airborne Forces, for a patrol car, a 30 mm cannon is redundant (12,7 or a maximum of 14,7 mm machine guns would be enough to disassemble any jihad mobile). 4 airborne troops - what kind of formation? Next, what are the assault bicycles? What else will they arrange for a cut?
              As it was rightly noted here, it would be better to develop a normal BMD with this money.

          An automatic grenade launcher for the same 30 mm is too weak a replacement, at least a 40-mm "Balkan" is needed, for which the cumulative ammunition was promised and remote detonation in such a caliber is feasible.

            and the cost of a shot, with remote detonation of this ammunition? It is also possible to use the "Balkan", by the way, it is a good alternative ... Although, if you put it in terms of manpower - up to 2 km, it is better to use the GPD-30 shot, cheap and menacing!

                then it is immediately necessary to design a light wheeled tank and put a large caliber on it, but for what purpose should this be done, specifically for the Airborne Forces !? And where to apply it, in what conditions?
                In the RPO caliber, it is an automatic grenade launcher, it is not easier to install several pipes with ATGMs, then put it on the BM !?

This unit is quite suitable for transporting sabotage groups of special forces of military reconnaissance, spotters, in areas where fire contact with the enemy can occur!

              Spotters are generally like how mice crawl.

              The movement of the KAO group is carried out on foot, on skis, by car or armored vehicles. The group can operate on reconnaissance equipment (PRP, CMU, BRM).
              It should be borne in mind that actions on special equipment are a revealing sign and this can lead to the targeted destruction of the GKAO by the enemy.

      I am above, in the commentary - I was hoping that it would be 2A72, just because of this:
      2A72, due to the use of a scheme with a movable barrel, in comparison with a gas outlet on 2A42, transmits a recoil momentum to the roof of an armored vehicle, which means that it has a lower maximum value of the instantaneous recoil force (7 tons, versus 20 tons for 2A42 with a fixed barrel), which allows it to be used on light armored vehicles such as BTR-82, Tiger-M with armored hulls made of sheets only about 7 mm thick, on which the use of weapons more powerful than a 14,5 mm KPVT machine gun was previously impossible before the appearance of the 30 mm 2A72 cannon.
