A large batch of armored vehicles 3-STS "Akhmat" entered service with the units of the Central Military District

The Russian military-industrial complex has sharply increased the production of military equipment and weapons against the backdrop of the ongoing special military operation. The 3-STS armored car developed within the framework of the SVO began to en masse enter the troops. According to the Ministry of Defense, all the equipment went to the units of the Central Military District.


More than 150 new 3-STS armored vehicles have been delivered to the troops of the Central Military District by the end of 2022. The equipment entered service with motorized rifle formations and military units of the Central Military District. Armored car "Akhmat" 6X6 is designed to transport military personnel, but can be used as an ambulance, the possibility of placing an ambulance stretcher is provided for by the design. Designed for 10 people, including the crew, there is a hatch to accommodate the shooter.

The Akhmat armored car was developed in just 25 days, work on it began on March 27, 2022 and was completed in April. For the armored car, a frame from a serial car was used, on which a “superstructure” is installed with protection similar to the Typhoon armored cars, which corresponds to class 5 GOST R 50963-96 (holds a 7,62 mm caliber bullet). The bottom is V-shaped, can withstand up to 6 kg of TNT. Safety chairs.

In August, Remdiesel's chief designer, Igor Zarakhovich, said that the armored car aroused great interest among the military, and its production had increased fivefold. The armored car is assembled 10 times faster than the Typhoon, which allows you to complete orders quite quickly. It is known that Chechnya bought a large batch of new armored cars, they went to equip the power units of the republic, including those participating in the special operation.

      Complete crap, look where the pre-heater is (in the photo right behind the bumper), breaking it will lead to leakage of antifreeze and jamming of the engine, and no one will need the entire protection class of the entire car.

    Sorry for the tediousness, but why does this car - this is not a car for picnics on pastoral lawns - have no protection at all on the guts, which for some reason are in the MOST VULNERABLE PLACE ???

      Or maybe they will fix it on the 27th day of development!

        This is PZhD - a pre-heater for the coolant of the engine cooling system. The car has been produced since August last year and is not going to be fixed.

      It caught my eye too. If it doesn’t save you from a bullet, then it’s elementary from fragments, flying stones and pieces of concrete. Any unit is important in business.

      If these units are so installed on a serial chassis, then when converted into an armored car, they will not go anywhere. Is that clearer?

        Yes, yes, yes, that’s exactly what it’s called - take a chassis that will reach the first LEAP, hang a heavy armored hull on it, which will turn into a target immediately after hitting an ANTI-PERSONNEL mine, which will pierce the brake system receiver (and it’s him in the photo) or it will kill the brake hose, and at least the cooling system pipe, after which this pepelats will not go far either. In short, another analogue was slapped on the knee, the hardworking boy was declared a genius, someone here already wants to put him in Manturov's place, and as a result, the fig turned out. With butter.

        Then this is not an armored car (protected car) but an AMN - a multi-purpose vehicle, and why does he need armor then?

    Weak.
    Western hold 14,5 mm.

          Completely different classes. The athlete weighs about 15 tons, the Griffin - 24. And the level of his armor protection is not disclosed in any source.
          The bulk of the Western ones are 1-3 protection classes (Iveco, Oshkoshi, Makspro), which approximately corresponds to ours (Tiger, Athlete, Spartak and Akhmat).

            Griffon, like the platform Jaguar and Serval, have level 4 according to Stanag 4659.

            About different classes - do not care.
            This is the latest generation of French armored vehicles (together with VBCI) - they have no others.

              With an analogue of the 4th, we had Typhoons 6x6 with additional modules.

                  Talk about something else, because the Griffin is a car of the same weight class as the Typhoon.
                  And you diligently compare it with Akhmat, although this is a car of a different class, a different weight category.

                  VBL is and was. So the Franks only have light and heavy cars. And we somehow came to a conditional division into classes like the Yankees: light, medium and heavy.

                    Its release was discontinued in 2010.
                    The French moved away from the production of cardboard armored vehicles.

                      Nevertheless, they exploit it, comrade. And they will operate for a long time (fortunately the car is not so bad).

                      And Serval, judging by the weight, is a 2-3 protection class. And then, it’s not yet a fact that in the light class they won’t start purchasing other cars - it’s necessary to carry l / s.

                        What does VBL - a small armored vehicle have to do with armored personnel carriers from the article?

                        When the resource runs out, they will write it off, do not dispose of serviceable machines.

                        Serval shortened by one axis and lightened, respectively, Griffon.
                        Stryker with additional armor on the sides, much longer than it and the weight is slightly higher - 4 levels in a circle.

                        Maxim, you yourself wrote that the Franks are abandoning all lightly armored vehicles and switching to protection from 14,5. I told you in response that this is not entirely true and cited the continued operation of VBL as an example. Moreover, the Franks will be forced to either modernize the VBL or increase the volume of purchases of its replacement (I don’t remember the name). So already here your statement that all the light wheel armor of the Franks protects against 14,5 is incorrect - the Franks retain the division into weight classes and only their heaviest vehicles (Griffin) protect from 14,5.

                        Actually, I don’t dispute the fact that the Griffin has a 4th class of armor - Typhoon 6x6 declares with additional protection from 30 mm. But I very much doubt that the serval has protection in a circle from 14,5 - armor and dopas are a decrease in cross-country ability - the Stryker still has reserves to carry armor - it is 8x8.

                        Do not attribute to me what I did not say.
                        It was about the fact that all new equipment and a very specific type: armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles.
                        And not VBL, which is not an armored personnel carrier, and old, and not produced.

                        Well, where do I attribute? This is the very first comment because of which the dispute started. There is no talk of BMP / BTR here. But the commentary is dedicated to Akhmat (which, with a stretch, can be called an armored personnel carrier).

    Any car cannot be made quickly. Once in my youth I was on the Avtovaz autotrack and saw the 99th there, and it went into series years later. But, we now need a lot of transport. How will the troops move, on foot? My grandfather came to Vienna in his time. Watch the video with the new columns of our equipment coming from the south. There are jeeps converted into shaitan-mobiles, as in Syria. They have no protection at all, but they ride well in the mud. During the Second World War, we managed to organize the production of T-34 tanks and this played a huge role in our victory.

    I read the comments and was surprised. The criticism is correct, but for some reason everyone forgot the purpose of the car (not the cutting edge), the time for which the car went to the troops (which is very important) and, most importantly, the lives of the guys who will and will use these cars (all the miscalculations are not worth moreover) take into account what the army is currently moving on and to hell with this heater and everything else, the main thing is life.
