The Ukrainian army received the Swedish all-terrain vehicles Bandvagn 202

The Ukrainian army adopted the Swedish all-terrain vehicles Bandvagn 202, a batch of equipment arrived in Ukraine. According to the Ukrainian press, this is not an official supply from the Swedish Ministry of Defense, all-terrain vehicles were purchased by a private person and donated to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


To date, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have received two all-terrain vehicles that have been modernized at one of the Ukrainian enterprises. An ambulance was made from an all-terrain vehicle for transporting military personnel to transport the wounded. It is reported that this technique is designed to work on the front line, since civilian vehicles cannot be used there. In the future, the Armed Forces of Ukraine should receive another 10-12 vehicles that have also undergone modernization.

This is a unique and very necessary technique in a war. It is adapted for transporting the wounded on the line of military operations, where civilian medicine does not work.

- said the Ukrainian official.

The Bandvagn 202 is an articulated tracked all-terrain vehicle developed by Bolinder-Munktell, a Volvo subsidiary, specifically for the Swedish army. The front module houses the engine and gearbox, the driver and commander are also located there, and up to eight military personnel were accommodated in the second compartment. The all-terrain vehicle is specially designed for driving on snow and swampy terrain. Has no weapons. Speed ​​- up to 35 km / h, on the water - 7 km / h. The movement is carried out by rewinding the tracks.

The production of all-terrain vehicles started in 1964 and continued until 1981, when it was replaced by the Hägglunds Bandvagn 206.

    Great goal!!! Now you can’t make a mistake from a grenade launcher and from the air .. Otherwise, it’s not very good to shoot at your armor .. Suddenly ours! And now urine from all trunks, if you see ..
    And the red crosses, this is all a trick .. There they rode in ambulances with mortars and fired on the Donbass, etc.

      For this tractor, shooting for the eyes is enough.

    Patency is high in caterpillar joints. But this one is really tiny.

    As far as I know, the Bandvagn-202 was really developed for the army, but only as a TZM and auxiliary transport in the conditions of the far north. There was never any talk of using it directly in the combat zone. From the point of view of common sense, this is an absolutely civilian off-road vehicle - these "moon rovers" are very fond of polar explorers, geologists and other tramps, but they did not take root in the army, because they drive very slowly, they have no protection, they make a lot of noise and are an ideal target .

      If you evacuate the wounded from the front line on this swamp, then 4x300 will easily turn into 4x200.

      ... looked at the picture for a long time in the hope of understanding how to install / remove the stretcher with the wounded.

        200x to transport - will do. If you remove the stretcher, more will enter in bulk. Right under the roof.

        The mounting system is the same as on our "loaf" (my namesake). Installing/removing the stretcher is really extremely inconvenient, rendering assistance while moving is basically impossible, there is no connection between the driver and the accompanying wounded physician. I don’t see any advantages, except for high cross-country ability, for using this equipment in the medical service.

      Why does he need protection, this is a rear transport.

    I don’t want to rant, lying on the couch and “give smart advice,” but everyone supplies the forelocks and supplies them, with everything and on demand. And our ,, generals ,, everyone thinks, ,, what to do with it ,,. Of course, they looked much better at the parades. But it's time to show in practice that our army is strong.

    What about the loose loop at the bottom? Will there be a fall from the upper shelf to the lower body placement on a bump?

    Necessary, however, the technique. In our army, too, this would be useful. Will Banderlogs use this lightly armored tractor specifically for evacuating the wounded? Is not a fact! But for mobile combat groups - they will definitely be. Either some rocket launchers or mortars will be installed. Much better than using civilian cars.

    Such joints in a war are an excellent target for someone who will hunt them! And the red cross here is not a hindrance at all :))
    Because the Cube or Lancet can be sent to the machine - and it will be destroyed. The trailer with the red cross does not suffer. As a result, the combat unit was sawn out ... and the laws of war and all sorts of conventions were not violated!
