"Withstood eight kilograms of TNT": video of tests of the new Indonesian armored personnel carrier Anoa-2 is shown

16

Indonesian state-owned company PT Pindad conducted tests to detonate a new self-developed Anoa-2 armored personnel carrier, showing the corresponding video frames.


BTR Anoa-2 with a 6x6 wheel arrangement was first presented to the public in 2010. This is an improved version of the Anoa base vehicle, the creation of which started in 2003 against the backdrop of a worsening military situation in the Aceh province. The new modification is equipped with an additional RCWS machine gun (that is, with remote control), has an improved intercom system. Outwardly, it can be distinguished by the smaller number of loopholes along the sides - three instead of four. Ten servicemen are accommodated in individual armchairs, which additionally protect against an explosion.



Anoa-2 was detonated on December 8 at one of the local test sites. As stated, "the machine withstood the impact of a mine with a capacity of eight kg in TNT equivalent."

Thank God we have finished this part of testing. Now we can talk about the transition from the design model, which is at the research stage, to its direct implementation in industrial production and supply to users.

- stated in the company PT Pindad.

The latest test reportedly confirmed the APC's compliance with the STANAG 4569-AEP-55 standard, level 3B (8 kg TNT). The vehicle has proven its ability to guarantee the safety of passengers when exposed to the specified amount of explosive and is now able to obtain a certificate of fitness for use.

    Interesting movie. Here is just a question: what will happen to the car if the blasting is carried out not on sand, but on hard ground (for example, on concrete), if 2 bridges out of 3 and some other hatch covers tore out during blasting on soft ground?

        Judging by the fact that people are sitting in a hammock, it will not seem a little to them even when an IED is blown up on soft ground, a kilo of 4 handicraft

          Here, here ... Watching this video and following the classic, you just want to say: "I don't believe it."
          Where is the CCTV footage inside? I would like to see what happens to the mannequin on this "harness"

    At first I thought it was a French VAB. But as it turned out "own" development ... I wonder what will happen if you jerk on a hard surface?

      This "own development" subtly reminds me of someone
      Not?

      Only a kind of hollow and lightweight version - for hunting, for example. I saw it live on the hunt - ordinary BRDM-2 craftsmen tune like this! With a bride in the registry office, this is not a shame. True, and at the price of a good "Kruzak" such tuning is selected.

        I really like trying to find something that is not there, based on the wheels are round, the armor is sloping.

        The main inspiration of Pindat was the VAB and they worked closely with the French, as well as the Chinese, whom they touched thoroughly at home.


        Based on the French design, the Chinese basic layout they liked, they made the Anoa family. At the same time, they did not copy anything directly, and if they considered the armored personnel carrier, it was for general development, because they basically twisted the purchased Type92 and VAB + communicated with the French, gave them work for outsourcing. Well, now the 2nd generation with mine protection is on the way. By the way, there is also a popular wheeled tank there, well, BMPha, a special version for marines from Makassar.

          No, I don’t argue. This is so, the personal impressions of an amateur. I am not a "tractor driver". I am the infantry. And I was inside a couple of times. All the time on top, "on the armor".

          And, by the way, in the last photo in your commentary from the rear, on the sly frame, what is it stuck on? Does he also fly? winked

            This is the version for the Marines - it should swim fast and far, from the DKVD to the coast. Therefore, the mover was enlarged and a folding system was invented, otherwise it will turn into a plow.

              Hotro ... good Only on land is it not too vulnerable stray? Not even from the enemy - it's banal from the stones from under the wheels.

    And I also wonder if the soldiers will always keep their feet not on the floor but on a belt.

    It resembles our armored personnel carrier in shape, moreover, 70ku, visually from the front.
    Holds? Well done, congratulations.
    Well, how the Serviceman will be after the detonation depends a lot on what, including the Observance of instructions ... which, as Experienced ones know, were not taken from the ceiling and were not invented for laughter ...

    The pictures do not show whether it is possible to quickly leave the damaged car or are all the hatches jammed?
