37

The latest armored car "VPK-Ural", developed by the "Military Industrial Company", is ready for acceptance for supply and mass production, the Russian Guard has completed testing of equipment. This is reported by the developer company on its page in Instagram.


According to the publication, the armored car passed preliminary tests in the divisions of the Russian Guard, where it confirmed the declared performance characteristics. At the moment, the car is completely ready for acceptance for supply, the decision remains with the command of the National Guard. Details of past tests are not given.

The armored car "VPK-Ural" was first presented at the international military-technical forum "Army-2019". Wheel formula - 4x4, weight - 14 500 kg. Length - 6 500 mm, width - 2 550 mm, height - 2 800 mm. Ground clearance - 400 mm. Installed domestic YaMZ-536 turbodiesel, developing a capacity of 360 horsepower. The maximum speed is 100 km / h, the range is declared at 1000 km.

"VPK-Ural" is largely unified with the armored car "Athlete", but much cheaper, since its design uses units and parts of serial equipment. This fact not only reduces the cost of production of the machine, but also facilitates its operation.

The armored car is designed to carry 12 people in full gear. Mine protection provides protection against an explosive device equivalent to six kilograms of TNT. Special anti-traumatic chairs with seat belts are installed. Armor of the engine compartment and cockpit protects against bullets of 7,62 × 54 mm caliber with a steel core, installation of additional armor screens is provided.

The armored car is already being delivered to a foreign customer in the Middle East in a standard modification and in a pickup version. In total, more than 100 machines have already been delivered.

    How good this stupidity has become, to write reports on instagrams and on twitter! And what, officially this "Russian Guard" does not have its own website? Or, let them write reports on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs! And, this is "the future of Russia" reports on enemy resources ... ..have come.....

      Since 2015, the National Guard has nothing to do with the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Who cares, the official website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia is located at the address MVD.RF, the territorial internal affairs bodies of the subjects have similar resources only with the region number.

      Well, actually, the article says that it was not the Russian Guard that reported it, but the manufacturer. And this is a commercial organization that informs its potential buyers in a way that is more convenient for them. There is no need to look for zrada where there is none.

          Why not KAMAZ?
          KAMAZ consists of a full cycle of automotive industry. Located on the territory of the Russian Federation. Or do you propose to pull up Iveco?
          Although for the needs of the WG it is better to use the developments of the Ministry of Defense or the FSB.

          So I'm talking about it. They say one thing, but it turns out as always. The nomenclature is only increasing, and in everything. I singled out UNIFICATION on a large scale, it was sarcasm, not an excuse for their activities.

        And what's the difference (in the context, unification) of what shape the body is? it that, in case of severe damage, change it? Inside the car, as a rule, there is a YaMZ or KAMAZ engine, instruments, too, do not differ in variety, and so on. So, in terms of units, the machines for the most part are already unified.

    What about the troop compartment?
    Something got carried away by these armored vehicles. For the National Guard against the crowd with banners and stones, it will do. For combat conditions hardly.

      It has just been tested in Russia, and 100 pieces have already been delivered to a foreign customer in the Middle East. Taking into account the fact that they are fighting on Toyotas there, but here there is still some kind of armor, apparently everything suits. I wonder who this customer is, who was so urgently pinned down, maybe Libya, Sudan ...?

    A hooded scheme is in every way better than a hoodless one, both during detonation and during shelling. I hope they will add armor according to the State Tests. And the fact that this is "to disperse the crowd", when it gets serious, there will no longer be enough - the Russian Guard or the Guard, everyone will be at the forefront. It’s good that at least the Russian Guard was given to the Urals.

    The maximum speed is 100 km / h, the power reserve is declared at 1000 km, but it is much cheaper, since components and parts of serial equipment are used in its design.

    Not bad !!!! And it looks very brutal!

    It's like a chamomile: if they accept it, they will ride the "VPK Ural", if they don't accept it, they will ride what they drove. request
    The machine is most likely for its own purposes - completely. It’s not on the attack, on guns and tanks to walk in order to hold a large caliber. Moreover, you can hang additional sheets.

    Dear members of the forum, explain to me, a wretched orphan, such a thing: as far as I have seen, all, well, or the vast majority of modern armored vehicles, well, at least this one, have a body (compartment for crew and troops) in the form of a parallelepiped. In other words, the sides are vertical. However, if we look at German armored cars during the war, we notice that the sides are set "at an angle". this was done in order to provide a recochet and thereby improve protection with the same thickness of the armor plate. Accordingly, the question is: why in modern domestic developments are they in no hurry to install armor plates as in German armored personnel carriers, i.e. at an angle?

    I am inclined to think that some Russian security forces or other government agencies may be interested in purchasing An-140, An-148/158, L-410, IC16MII, Iveco LMV and Be-200 aircraft from the Russian Armed Forces.
