The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has difficulties with replacing UAZ army vehicles in the Armed Forces of Ukraine

53

It became known about the difficulties faced by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in its attempts to replace army UAZ vehicles with other off-road vehicles.


Recall that at the beginning of 2021, the main military department of Ukraine announced a tender for the purchase of several hundred army vehicles, which are planned to replace the UAZ in the troops. Development work in this regard in Ukraine was called "Development of an off-road passenger car for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine".

As a result, applications from six companies were registered, among which there is one, the authorized capital of which is 1 thousand hryvnia, and the registration time is several weeks before the announcement of the tender by the ministry.

Also among the applicants - the company "Ukravtobusprom", which is actually the heir to those scanty assets and capacities that remained after the bankruptcy of the Lviv Bus Plant (LAZ). As it turned out, “Ukravtobuprom” has not produced a single bus or a single SUV over the past seven years ... However, this did not prevent it from declaring its readiness to participate in the tender.

Problems for the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in terms of replacing the UAZ are associated with several areas. For example, the Ukrainian military department stated that R&D should be carried out at the expense of the companies themselves, and the final results will be compared, on the basis of which the optimal option for future financing of production will be selected. In this regard, many of the original contenders for production immediately dropped out. Apparently, they hoped to receive funding immediately, but when it came to the need to spend themselves with an unpredictable result, the number of those wishing to “de-Sovietize” the main army off-road vehicle of the Ukrainian Armed Forces began to diminish.

Another difficulty for the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in this regard is the financing itself. Since we are talking about the production of hundreds of military vehicles, it is necessary to finance not only their direct purchases, but also subsequent maintenance, the formation of the proper volumes of spare parts and components. And this initially turned out to be "not fully envisaged."

    What is the difference between Ukraine and Russia? Yes, the fact that the same budget cuts in Russia are inviolable (because they are the friends of the darkest), and in Ukraine there are different groups of oligarchs. They merge each other with the press and the prosecutor's office.

      No need to level up. Here's how the Ukrainian army differs for clarity.
      . Residents of the southeast of Ukraine talk about the situation in the region in letters to relatives and friends.

      This time, the article presents the revelations of the "inspector from the headquarters", told about a drunken case to local residents. Which the "major" tried to persuade to jointly trade with the DPR "surplus" ammunition and military equipment.


      But what I learned from one officer, now I'll tell you. It's already possible - he left. And before that, there was a type of inspector in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Drank a lot in the evenings with the locals, which is amazing.

      You know, after which I can't do much, but he is yes. But he is a visitor, and even in ranks. But he said a lot and all the time in a minor key.



      Here, in brief, is just what I heard myself during these gatherings with vodka:

      “There is a mess in the troops, the officers were divided into three camps. Drunkards, hucksters and people like him, "don't sew a mare's tail" - they didn't manage to make money, didn't really take root in the headquarters, and didn't want to sink completely to the bottom of the bottle. Although he was drinking heavily.

      For the money. The promised "a thousand grisek-a-day." It is clear that they do not pay. And the promised from 8 to 000 (up to $ 13) per month, not all major colonels receive. Only those who are at the headquarters, or "for special services." The rest will be as necessary. Here he is on a business trip - there is a chance to get it in a month.

      And those who are sitting on the front lines are disenfranchised creatures. There battalion and company commanders are twisting. Why do you think the losses are hidden? That's right, they get money for dead souls. According to the list, there are 100 people in the company, but in fact - 60-70, if less, then you can't hide it. And a platoon of 10-20 snouts. Sections and three or four muzzles are not uncommon. Not all of them died, of course. And you can't hide all of them. Who is wounded, who is sick or deserted (the DPR surrendered or got in as a language).

      Search for a connection with the DPR. Maybe in all seriousness the "major" wanted to open his gesheft to the adjacent territory, I cannot say. He told us what he could trade and put there. Type invited to cooperation. Maybe then he drank with us and confessed.

      But we opened up to him and no one got in touch. Maybe a setup, or maybe FIG knows him. Because here from the VSUshny officer who established the gesheft, they are encrypted terribly. Nobody concedes a piece of the "window at the border". Moreover, the "ensigns" of the neighbors rattle if their double bass falls on someone else's plot. And then this "Pan Major" wanted to get in. Yeah, we scattered, of course.

      He also talked about the supply of troops. With grub - better than in 2015. Ammunition shaky-roll. What about BC? Everything is shitty here. They supply shells up to thirty millimeters, cartridges for small arms and mines somehow. What is interesting is that there are a lot of very old Soviet ones and, as a result, refusals when shooting.

      With the rest of the ammunition - ass. Especially heavy from 100 millimeters and high-explosive fragmentation for tanks, only a bunch of armor-piercing. Remained somewhere in storage for 50 years. There are several large warehouses, they are trying to sort, but the rest is all fired or sold.

      There is nothing to carry out daily shelling, as in the summer, because only the rifleman and BMPhami are playing pranks. If earlier shells were transported by carriages, now by cars, and even from afar. A month is stocked up in order to fire a week.

      Loss. Says a lot. They lose a lot, literally. From illness and drunkenness most of all. Then there are random crossbows and not very self-detonations, sometimes in the field, or even in the dugout. Nobody knows the exact numbers - read about "dead souls" above. Only those losses that cannot be hidden or if the inspection is satisfied with the personnel review. But this does not happen often, because the authorities here do not need to do it on the front line, for this there are "gentlemen majors", but do the majors need it?


      Let's cast aside the ideological, there are no more of them in the troops than pacifists. The bulk of today either depict military actions for rations, or out of the principle: we feel bad, but we will make it even worse for you. We screwed up with the Maidan, and you were right, so sho "we will not-forget-we will not-forgive" and will not give you a better life, because why should only we be shitty?

      True, when they get snot, they sing completely different songs. So do not have any illusions about being ideological or that fennel propaganda works well here. Everyone here knows what and how. And they howl deliberately.

      Didn't quite catch your analogy.
      Especially considering that the SDO goes through special accounts with a limited list of opportunities for spending.
      And with an advance payment of 30%.
      You can, of course, start your own suppliers ... but you won't last long. This is necessary initially, even during the formation of the NMC, when calculating the maximum contract price, overstated figures should be laid. That is, in principle, all this is being done, but with much greater difficulty and risk than in the days of, for example, Spetsstroy.
      In Ukraine, as far as I am aware, the problem is exactly the same as ours at the beginning of 2000 - they threw money into any fictitious program, especially without straining even with documents, and then administratively covered all these expenses as in the case of bulletproof vests, hammers, shame, etc.
      To put it simply, they steal from us, yes, but from the actually created products (most often), and in Ukraine they steal even before they start production. That is, they, on the contrary, think where they can steal, and then they come up with a program for this, which will create the appearance of the need for these expenses. As with the "Big Construction", for example, with single-level interchanges for $ 500 million. and the same UAZs.
      But I do not quite agree with the opinion of the author of the article that the participants dropped out after they learned that the design work was self-financing. This is not true. This condition was originally in the procurement documentation and was known about it. Everything is simpler - the attraction of all the garbage dumps is Ukrainian fashion, so that later to cheerfully report on the huge savings in the bidding.
      They ate easier:
      Market price: RUB 1
      "Own participant" offers for 10 rubles.
      "Garbage" -100 rubles.
      As a result, they buy 10 times more expensive, but they report that the price has dropped by as much as 45 rubles.
      We also sin like this, of course, but in recent years the FAS has very much cut it for this.

      What's wrong with the Bogdan-2351 multipurpose SUV?
      In 2017, they were "driven" at the training ground.
      In 2018, he was sent for testing to the OOS / ATO zone, where it was used as a patrol vehicle, a vehicle for placing an AN / TPQ-49 counter-battery system, and also as a vehicle for artillery units. And, as it were, successfully.
      True, Bogdan Motors belongs to Poroshenko ...

      Russia is still not in a position to replace UAZs with something more modern, what can we say about jumpers ...

      To change, you need a different engine, around which the car is built, and not vice versa. And since there are no new engines, there is nowhere to wait for a new car.
      This is one of the pitfalls of the USSR - an unspoken ban on the development of motor building. Tanks were riveted in tens of thousands of pieces (money was found for this), and to develop a new engine (range from 2.0l to 5.0l) - no, no (no money for this).
      The same GAZ-53 drove the American engine as early as 1936.

    Cars for the army are definitely a serious tender. But cheaper tenders (well, for example, the supply of 500 pieces of Chinese armchairs for the army) in some developed countries can be won by any Uncle Vasya from a legal entity. face. Such a tender is open to anyone
    it is very, very difficult for anyone who wants to buy from "their" seller there. There is an open criterion for evaluating the proposal. And if Vasya sells a chair for $ 400, and your sidekick for $ 995, then you just physically cannot buy from a sidekick. Everything is transparent. It is a pity that this model does not work either in Russia or in Ukraine.

    I don’t understand what the “problem” is for Ukraine ?! Wanted SUV buy Toyota and that's it. This is not the USSR-Russia either, it falls into NATO standards, a party of several hundred such powers as Ukraine doesn’t spit, they are not threatened with sanctions, because no laughing another miracle to pile hottyut, there was already a machine gun, a snipe. rifle, machine gun, tank, MLRS, anti-ship missiles. Only in practice it turned out to be either unnecessary trash, or there is no BABLA, or nothing happened. So they run around with Kalash, ride BMPs, armored personnel carriers, UAZ, URAL, ZIL, 66, fly on Soviet-Russian planes, the Navy generally laughs through tears. But GONORU like Britain is at its peak.

        It’s you guys who didn’t see all this alive. Brazzaville 1976-1978, Poto-Poto rear base. The frontal fence is made of KRAZOV, and inside our equipment is the sea. Come with the keys and look for what you need ... Even the French armored train was ... fellow

    A good UAZ car still was and can be eaten .. Cheap, unpretentious, repairable .. Now we have made these jeeps of different brands, expensive, outwardly beautiful .. But just as soon as everything to write off .. And again on foot.

      If we remove the show-off, then the basis for all real SUVs is approximately the same. The question is the quality of the metal and its processing + the quality of the rubber bands. Of course, the information component also plays an important role. UAZ is the leader in terms of the number of outright ersi in the network. For the most part, they write "scribes" who did not come close to this car and did not go further than a solid dirt road.

    And in the end they will buy Geliki for the entire allocated amount. Not that much, but enough for the chief executives. And you will not dig - they correspond to the NATO standard.

      Again, second-hand .. Yes, even if they ride horses, I won't be surprised
      They won't last long anyway.

    Well, that's what the dispute was about in the last article - to buy expensive Toyota one, expensive consumables the second, expensive maintenance (spare parts) the third.

    Ah, that sweet word is saw cut. Everyone is ready to "promise them whatever they want", and then play with the tender portfolio into the territory of visa-free travel.
