An armored car "Tiger" with "tank" protection is spotted


Military equipment of Russian origin performs tasks in various theaters of military operations, serving various armies of the world. Each user uses it at his own discretion, equipping the machines with themes weapons and systems that are preferable to him. This is the reason for the wide variety of models typical for one type of equipment. For example, the Shot BA has many modifications, being equipped with a wide variety of weapons.

However, installation on Russian armored vehicles can be called a rare occurrence. tank dynamic protection. As indicated on the Serbian resource Zoka, an armored car "Tiger" was seen, "dressed" in the DZ "Contact-1". She covers the sides of the armored vehicle, going a little on the hood.

The number of the armored car is marked with the number "76", which indicates that it belongs to the Central Military District. This means that the protection of this vehicle was strengthened by the efforts of the Russian military; it is possible that the work was carried out in the garrison workshops. Judging by the flag standing behind, the equipment belongs to the signal troops.

"Contact-1" is the first generation remote control. It was put into service in 1985 and was regularly installed on a number of tanks, in particular T-64BV, T-72B, T-55AMV, T-62MV. DZ blocks contain an explosive that counteracts the course of the cumulative jet.

"Tiger" with "Contact-1" ... I don't even know what to say about this

    I do not know how much such protection is needed for this car .. No matter how much more harm it may have. All the same, this vehicle does not have tank armor.

        You can't argue with the photo. But for a long time in "Military Acceptance" I saw a plot where DZ was hung on an ordinary SUV. Nothing of the sort happened.

      This is complete nonsense! The brrnya of our infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers could not withstand the detonation of elements of the Contact-1 KDZ and broke through. Therefore, it has never been installed on lightly armored vehicles and is not installed during production.

      Yes, it will be okay with the patron, even the experiment was carried out. The explosion dz withstand only the door crumpled and then all the same armor.

    I also understand lattice screens, but DZ is too much.

      I would not be surprised if contact1 is soon attached to a bulletproof vest))) And so it seems like the DZ was developed for lightly armored vehicles.

    Judging by the flag standing behind, the equipment belongs to the signal troops.

    And this is especially sad ((
    To do such a stupid thing ...
    DZ is attached to the armor that can withstand its explosion. Otherwise, there is more harm from it than protection. More precisely, no protection at all, but the sure death of the car and the crew in the event of a remote control explosion. The same BTR-80 and BMP-1/2 are therefore not equipped with it.

    A very dangerous neighborhood of Tiger armor and Contact-1. In the case of the initiation of VV Contact, the fragments of the armor inside the Tiger will cripple people, that's for sure.

      anti-splinter lining (plating) has a place to be inside the fighting compartment ... as in the rest of the armored vehicles of the RF Ministry of Defense and not only the Ministry of Defense ...

    There is a strong suspicion that those who did this are quite aware of the properties of the Tank DZ.
    People are still military and literate there is no less than here ...
    Conclusion - DZ boxes similar to Contact, may well be filled with something else ...
    Suppose that instead of BB there are briquettes of "armor" plastic mixed with kevlar, mayonnaise, ceramic tiles and shawarma ...
    Perhaps just against Krupnyak like DShK and Barrett-like.

    there seems to be at least 30-40 mm of armor so that contact 1 does not break it inside the car. either this is an obvious sabotage, or there is no contact in the boxes from under Dz 1. but something else. although in the second case it was possible to come up with something more decent. all the same, these contact 1 boxes look very poor and there are many unprotected zones on the area

    And who said that this is "Contact -1"? Back in 2000, the Research Institute of Steel created the world's first serial mounted DZ complex for lightly armored vehicles. There were no tigers then. And by 2010:
    For 10 years, the Russian developer managed to reduce the amount of explosives undermined by 4 times, and in the future, completely abandon it, due to which the survivability of the complexes has been increased many times over. The level of protection provided by the remote sensing systems does not decrease, but tends to increase. Extensive experience in the field of protection of LME, allows JSC "Research Institute of Steel" today to create and with maximum efficiency to adapt existing technical solutions to any lightly armored vehicles.

    I don't think the "Internet" people will like it. Indeed, from their point of view, the less protection the Russian soldiers have, the better.
