ROC "Rigger": the Ministry of Defense has completed state tests of a new universal transport-loading vehicle


The Russian Defense Ministry has completed state tests of a new transport-loading vehicle developed as part of the Rakelazhnik R&D project. The new TPM has already been ordered by the military department and will soon begin to enter the troops.

The new transport-loading vehicle is versatile and capable of providing ammunition to several different complexes at once. As they write "News" citing military sources, the TZM is designed to deliver ammunition and recharge the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems, Iskander-M operational-tactical missile systems and Tornado MLRS complexes.

The unification of the TZM, according to the military, will ensure a faster supply of anti-aircraft and missile units with ammunition and will significantly simplify logistics.

The new transport-loading vehicle is developed on the basis of a multi-axle tractor with high cross-country ability. It is also known that the cockpit is partially armored, and the ammunition compartment is closed, which provides additional safety during transportation. The installed special device for reloading missiles will help to reload faster. No other data on the new TPM is provided.

To date, all three complexes have their own transport and loading vehicles. To reload the Iskander-M OTRK, the 9T250 TZM on the MZKT-7930 chassis is used, for the S-300 and S-400 air defense systems - the TZM 5T99 / 22T6 based on the Ural, and the Tornado MLRS - on the MAZ-9A TZM 255T543 ...

    Is it possible that at least in this matter we decided to unify? And then they just talk, but they themselves produce a variety of the same type of technique.

      Shoigu works, whether you like it or not. Moscow was not built in a day.

    So for the readers of VO, in the Pentagon. And TZM will be able to work with "grounded" Zircon, if that. wassat

    I would even remove the TPM from the kit. In fact, this is the same launch complex, you just need to connect the aiming equipment. How to do this, via a closed communication channel or by cable, is not at all important.

    The reloading methods for the complexes are different, most likely the tzmks will differ based on the base vehicle.

      One crane, different attachments to it + different cradles for ammunition. In general, nothing complicated, just hook-on devices and lodgements go as an extended set to the main one. And everyone takes only the ones they need.
