BMP Lynx of the Hungarian army increase protection against modern anti-tank systems

9

In the new Lynx infantry fighting vehicles, recently delivered to the Hungarian army by Rheinmetall, they increase protection against modern anti-tank systems. For this, combat vehicles will be equipped with StrikeShield active protection systems from the same German manufacturer.


This is reported by Army Recognition magazine.

Thus, Hungary will become the last customer for this innovative technology, which has been part of the Rheinmetall product portfolio since 2006. The order value exceeds 140 million euros.

Hungary's decision in favor of StrikeShield is explained, in particular, by the obligations of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance to take part in complex military missions in which modern anti-tank systems pose a serious threat.

This Active Defense System is the third and latest generation of the well-known Active Defense System (ADS) technology. It is a distributed system whose sensors and protection are integrated into the circuits of the entire machine. StrikeShield stands out among similar systems with the lowest emissions in the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as the best response time in the event of an ambush or multiple strikes. It will be mechanically integrated into the hybrid armor plates of the Hungarian army's Lynx armored vehicle.

    Rumbles like an ancient tractor. In general, I have a question: is the KAZ protected from the shooter? I just think that hitting 12,7 or 14,5 in ammunition will change its characteristics.

    Well, she rushed somewhere in the fields, and what is she like in battle? Will KaZ protect, or is the money just wasted? Was there a real, not ostentatious shelling of military equipment with this KaZ?

    And if KAZ is in the radar, then it will definitely change. All modern armored vehicles suffer from small-caliber small arms, all these TVs, locators and so on have sharply reduced the resistance of tanks to
    damage from shrapnel and bullets. An accurate burst or a sniper shot is enough and the tank is incapable of combat. Now, for some reason, they do not carry out tests for firing from small arms.

      This is not true. All observation devices and sights are protected
      multi-centimeter bulletproof glasses. Very expensive.
      Conventional small arms do not damage them.

    The Lynx is built around a sponson-shaped hull with a long, shallow ridge and a V-shaped ventral plate. The cockpit is on the front left, the engine is on the front right, the fighting compartment is in the center (if equipped with a turret), and there is a collapsible compartment in the back, which is accessed via a ramp at the rear. car.
    A key feature of the Lynx design concept is the separation and modularity of the vehicle into two main parts: the base vehicle and the dedicated and role-playing equipment. The Lynx variants are designed around a common drive module with scalable armor and weaponry options that carry various mission kits. Currently available kits for BMP and armored personnel carriers. In the first case, the tower is installed on the roof of the hull, in the second case, the tower is removed and replaced with a plate on the roof with a number of observation devices. It is clear that this transformation can be done side by side or in the field within eight hours.

    In Russia, it is possible to make a KAZ for the protection of armored vehicles in the likeness of the ADS system, but using the "counter-ammunition" of the KAZ "Arena-M" ...
