Ministry of Defense will continue to finance OCD on a unified platform "Kurganets-25"The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will continue financing OCD on the unified platform “Kurganets-25”, which is planned to be made a single medium tracked-type combat vehicle, Izvestiya reports with reference to a source in the leadership of the military department.

According to the Izvestia source, “this decision was made, despite the fact that, with the exception of the tank segment, the Russian army as a whole will shift over time to medium and light wheeled platforms.”

In an interview with Izvestiya, the representative of the Ministry of Defense stressed that “it was decided to support the OCR on the track“ Kurgantsu-25 ”, since there must be a choice in the Russian conditions of off-road”.

He added that the work on creating the base platform is almost completed, so at this stage it is pointless to stop them.

According to Izvestia, KurganMashzavod develops the Kurganets-25 platform modularly on the instructions of the Ministry of Defense. On the basis of this platform, several combat vehicles will be created - an infantry fighting vehicle, a command and control vehicle, reconnaissance and ambulance vehicles, self-propelled artillery mounts in caliber up to 122 mm (Khosta, Vena), supply vehicles, and mobile radar systems.

If the Defense Ministry does not change its decision on the Kurganets-25 project, the first prototype of the combat platform will be submitted for testing in the 2013 year. At least another year will be required to prepare the machine for launch into mass production, writes Izvestia.

    Well, financing will continue again ... as if the news was not from the Moscow Region, but from the Central Bank winked
    "Izvestia" has little faith, but what is it
    If the Defense Ministry does not change its decision on the Kurganets-25 project, the first prototype of the combat platform will be submitted for testing in the 2013 year. At least another year will be required to prepare the machine for launch into mass production, writes Izvestia.

    That is, financing is coming, and then the decision will be changed and the operating time in the basket?

      Quite right, Lyokha, in my opinion in my article about "The United States pulled out teeth to our Sharks" I already said that our bureaucrats realized that they would no longer be allowed to steal insolently, they already brought the people and decided to follow the example of their American brothers, they seem to do something they reform, build, but at the same time there are MUCH more opportunities to steal, the people will also support them, there is a pocket full and a smile on your face, plant only pawns occasionally so that people think that they are fighting corruption, that's all. In general, the USA-2 is made from Russia, education is deteriorating gradually, new values ​​\ uXNUMXb \ uXNUMXbhave been instilled in a generation of new values, soon there will be the same herd of zombies as in the USA and they will be sawing, just by that time they will get to Siberia, but I would not be surprised at all if there without our leader, the development and extraction of minerals has already been established, only everything goes not to the state, but to someone in the pocket.

    you are a pessimist, my friend, and in Soviet times financed the Moscow Region, this is their budget item, in addition, the Central Bank does not finance anyone in general, except for banks and, in some cases, the Ministry of Finance

    122 mm? who said that self-propelled guns will be bought in Italy? (PS, all the same, these are not wheeled tanks (because they are not intended to attack the field) but self-propelled guns)

      but I like the name of the ship. fast destroyers were given similar names. let the platform be fast, maneuverable, secure, and universal. What do you call a yacht.

        And what is your name - Sineva.

        There is still - Liner and Inevitability.

        Interesting names that come to mind are Palitsa, Ilya Muromets, Abramych, Vladimirovich.

    "This decision was made, despite the fact that, with the exception of the tank segment, the Russian army as a whole will move over time to medium and light wheeled platforms."

    Lord, the source of Izvestia needs to kill himself with his head up against the wall. Nobody was going to switch "in general" to wheeled platforms, we are only talking about a slight increase in their share.

        light, medium, heavy - designation of the class in terms of the degree of protection, both for a wheeled platform ("Boomerang") and for a tracked platform ("Kurganets-25")
