The TM-140 all-terrain vehicle developed in Kurgan was tested as part of the Umka-2022 Arctic expedition

The tracked transporter TM-140 developed by the specialists of Kurganmashzavod was tested as part of the Northern fleet Arctic expedition "Umka-2022". This was reported on the company's page in the social network VKontakte.


According to the publication, the expedition, which took place in Chukotka, included three wheeled and two tracked vehicles: a pneumatic all-terrain vehicle, a six-wheeled Burlak, an eight-wheeled Rusak, a Buggy vehicle as a reconnaissance vehicle, as well as a Kurgan TM-140 and " Uzola" - caterpillar UAZ "loaf", developed in Nizhny Novgorod.

As part of the expedition, the column traveled 1100 km through hilly tundra, swamps, rocks, and streams. All stocks, including fuel, were carried by TM-140, the only one with the necessary carrying capacity and body volume. Not everyone reached the finish line, the Buggy and Uzola could not stand it, which had to be towed for the last 250 km. The last obstacle was the Amguema River, which only the TM-140 managed to overcome, because the all-terrain vehicle is floating. The test report was sent to the commander of the Northern Fleet.

The TM140 all-terrain vehicle can carry up to 3,5 tons of cargo on the platform. The machine has a total length of 7,8 m, a width of 3,11 m and a height of 3,1 m. A clearance of about 450 mm is provided, which ensures high cross-country ability on various surfaces. The maximum speed on the highway is 45 km / h. Afloat - 4 km / h, while the movement is carried out by rewinding the tracks. The cruising range with additional tanks is 800 km.

In 2019, plans were announced to create a special off-road vehicle based on the TM-140 for the Russian army, as well as other law enforcement and civilian agencies operating in the Arctic.

    Loaf on caterpillars. This is some kind of surrealism, as if the men in the garage decided to make a tank and it turned out. I like

      On the contrary, we decided to make a loaf. but as always the tank turned out feel
      In general, the right way) While the mattresses there are squeaking about combat androids and other self-dressing trousers, the real and necessary equipment in the Far North, such as icebreakers and all-terrain vehicles, has gone. In parentheses, we note that we have no problem with competition in the West ... 5 million Swedes simply won’t be able to build all-terrain vehicles for at least the whole of Alaska

        "Uzolla" - small dimensions determine a very weak cross-country ability.

        TM-140 - optimal in size and with very good cross-country ability. Like its name is "Chetra".

        "Rusak" is a normal all-terrain vehicle, but it is not wide enough, which, at a high height, greatly impairs lateral stability.

        "Burlak" is an SUV with the dimensions of a truck, which provides the possibility of trouble-free driving around the city. Convenient for hunters and fishermen.

      Just Kurganmashzavod (KMZ) uses components from other cars: KamAZ, GAKH, UAZ.
      In this case, it is beneficial to use ready-made cabins, and not to reinvent the wheel, i.e. to produce frame, which, moreover, must also be certified.

        "Uzolla" is not Kurgan, but Ulyanovsk, and therefore the cabin is UAZ. In Kurgan, at KMZ, they started with ATS-59 and ATS-59G and continue in the same spirit

      From the "loaf" there, apparently, only a cabin.

      yes, the loaf is cool ...
      but everything is done "in Russian" - control on levers like on a tractor ...
      could not put the steering wheel as on the TM-140

    Well done! All-terrain vehicles and in the USSR produced good ones! The main thing is to go into the series, once a worthwhile thing!

      This is not a novelty of KMZ, it has been producing it as a civilian car for a long time.

      Back in the early 70s, having visited the UAZ, the Japanese spoke about the UAZ-469 with wheel gears - "These Russians will not come up with anything, just not to build good roads"

    Nishtyak pokatushki turned out.
    The nature of Chukotka, judging by the video, strongly resembles the interior of the Tien Shan. Only there is no ice, but apparently there should be winter ice.

    In the near future, the Russian Federation is going to actively develop the Arctic-Antarctic, and for this, a lot of such equipment is needed and different. And so it will be. Ships have been made, autonomous nuclear thermal power plants have been put into series, now this. You look, in 5-7 years they will start building cities at the poles. especially since the soils began to be exposed steadily and the summer at the poles became warmer and longer.

      The design didn't exist. Nothing has changed, even in decades.

      Yes. And the ground, hard as a rock at a depth of 2 meters, began to thaw and turn into a swamp, where more than one pile was sinking. In fact, the thawing of the Arctic has already begun, and apart from a headache, this has almost no advantages. Buildings are falling (in Norilsk, the same barrel of fuel fell from a defrosted foundation), gas pockets are being destroyed and methane will go into the sky in a tight stream, and so on.

    motorcycle league on steroids? However, making it more comfortable is already a plus!

    TM 140, really cool thing. I work in the far north. In the summer, in the swamps, TMKA will do everything, without options. Of the minuses, these are caterpillars with rubber-metal expanders, fall off, become clogged with dirt. The tracks themselves cost 1.5 million, and wear out extremely quickly. Each track has rubber silent blocks. The front roller is smooth, not an asterisk. When braking, if the goose is worn out, then it is stretched and disassembled. And in the conditions of the tundra, putting on a caterpillar is another occupation. If there was an asterisk in front, as on MTLB, then disassembly would not have occurred. There are many questions about the cooling system. Radiators (engine and gearbox) above the engine, horizontally. The heat exchangers are leaking. Roller lubrication is archaic. And a lot of little things.

      Rubber is there just like that, it is screwed there according to GOST, and so it is not needed there for nothing.

    TM, of course, is not without jambs. Especially the Yamz 236 with a turbine that takes up a hell of a lot of space in the engine compartment. If they put a line-up, it would be much better.
