In the Indian city of Avadi, armored vehicles are as common a road user as any other vehicle. India has published a video of the BLT-72 bridgelayer based on the Soviet tank T-72, which drives through this city.


It was posted on his Twitter page by one of the eyewitnesses.

The video shows a bridgelayer driving through the city on the chassis of a T-72M1 tank (version Ajeya_. This heavy engineering equipment is produced at the Heavy Vehicles Factory (HVF) located in Avadi.

It is noteworthy that among the local residents, the appearance of heavy armored vehicles on the street did not arouse much interest. It seems that this does not seem to them an unusual event, they are already used to it.

As one of the Indian users of the social network explained, the city even has a specially designated reinforced lane for the movement of armored vehicles on the public road, along which it follows from the factory to a nearby test site.

The BLT-72 design supposedly borrows engineering solutions that were used on the Soviet MTU-55 bridgelayer, produced since the 60s of the last century.

It lays out two types of bridges, 20 and 22 meters long, capable of supporting a weight of up to 50 tons. They require a maximum of five minutes to install.

    I just laughed heartily from the video ... only there weren't enough dances and flowers.

    Well, the bridgelayer passed along the road and what? What's the news then? Or are you working on the principle just to fill the tape with something? Soon there will be "news" about the fact that the soldier's weapon was noticed.

      it is in vain to belittle the degree of attention to everything military - by the stains of dirt on the boots and jacket, you can determine where you fought (and did not have time to clean it) or the serviceman slept drunk ... and here it is the same ..

      combat readiness and involvement in the topic is above all. Indian showed it

        In Nizhny Tagil, people would rather be surprised if they don't see a single tank in a day. We, in Yekaterinburg, are also not new to armored vehicles. Although, of course, it inspires. "Coalition" before the first parade, before the official show, without tarpaulins and masks on a trailer, was driving from the factory. I saw it myself. The "bogdan" bus, which is "isuzu", is smaller. laughing

    BLT-72 can build two types of bridges, i.e. 20 m scissor bridge with load class MLC 60 and 22 m scissor bridge with load class MLC 70.

    Up to about 5 minutes with manual start or up to 3 minutes with automatic start.

    MT-55 and MT-55A were manufactured in the USSR and Czechoslovakia under license. And where is BLT-72 produced? It is clear that the base of the T-72 tank, and the design of the bridge span itself, how is it different?

      EMNIP back in the USSR produced MTU-72 - the bridge is just based on the T-72 tank ...

    I am very annoyed by the worship of blochers and journalists to everything abroad. Because then the children repeat after them and so this infection grows.
    Author! Make a report from N. Tagil. There, full-fledged tanks drive through the roads. And no one is surprised either.
