Sample "MTR" platform "SV" towed a column of military equipment weighing 92 tons per 300 kilometers

17
Recently, factory testing of the MTR mobile test sample began. During the tests, cargo with a gross weight of 300 tons was transported to 92 kilometers. Conducted stress testing is required to ensure the operation of BBM at high ambient temperatures, to overcome steep climbs and work at high altitudes. Actually, the transported cargo included:
- MTR itself, weighing 30 tons;
- 2 military machine "ULAN PT5", the total weight of 28 tons;
- 1 SK-105 Kürassier, light tank weighing 18 tons;
- 1 military truck with a load, the total weight of 16 tons.

Sample "MTR" platform "SV" towed a column of military equipment weighing 92 tons per 300 kilometers


The model “MTR” of the platform “SV” is an element (combat chassis) of the future series of AFV combat armored vehicles for the British armed forces. AFV programs AFV will replace the series of CVM (T). Tests are held in Austria at the factory of the company “GDELS”, which is the European branch of the American corporation “General Dynamics”. Tests are conducted to test the "MTR" before conducting the main tests. First of all, the engine capabilities of the 8V 199 TE21, chassis, gearbox are tested. In addition, factory tests showed the ability of the presented sample to withstand high temperatures, to ensure high performance. The 8V 199 TE21 engine is the latest development of the German company MTU. Major innovations - improved air intake system, improved turbogenerator operation, optimized cooling and fuel supply systems, which provided 600 kW (815 hp) at 2000-2300 revolutions per minute with 3000Nm torque. Such characteristics characterize the SV-platform as the most powerful in its class. GDELS will also conduct a series of tactical mobility tests of MTR at maximum own load in 42 tons to meet the stringent requirements for the SV platform. The factory test complex will be completed at the end of the 2012 of the year.



Following the plans of the Defense Ministry of Great Britain on the SV platform, a series of AFV combat armored tracked vehicles will be created, the required number of vehicles - 4000 units. The UK plan is designed for 30 years.

After finishing the factory tests in 2012, MTR will be sent to the following stress tests in Seville, Spain, where this element of the SV platform will undergo a grueling ALT accelerated test to determine operational and other characteristics for future combat missions. After the tests, during which MTR will pass at least 10000 kilometers, according to their results, the design and construction of the six main machines on the SV platform will begin.



The British Defense Ministry in the PR12 review has confirmed funding for the AFV program (BBM), part of which is the development of the SV platform. By this, it confirmed the plans for the reorganization of the armed forces before the 2020 year. In the UK, General Dynamics UK will supply the latest modern warships in various versions, providing ISTAR's advanced capabilities - reconnaissance, surveillance, target detection and target designation, ensuring maximum protection for military personnel when performing combat missions. Development of the SV-platform being a variant of “MOTS” will bring economic and industrial benefits to the UK, will allow to attract a foreign customer for AFV. Armored personnel carriers will be created in the UK (80 percent) with the involvement of British companies in the production of 70, which will save jobs and create new ones.

Prior to 2020, about 5.5 billion pounds will be spent on the AFV program. The entire program, apart from costs, will provide the UK with an economic effect of almost 10 billion pounds. A contract has already been signed with the English branch of Lockheed Martin for the development of a tower part for BMM in the reconnaissance version. The Thales subsidiary in Scotland will produce and supply sets of optics and electronics, which will include commander and gunner sights. They will be built using the latest Orion technologies for intelligence and target designation. In total, 12 contracts were signed with British companies and some European companies. As the AFV program develops, new British companies will be attracted to it, which will increase the economic return of the entire program.



AFV options:
- Scout - armored reconnaissance armored personnel carrier;
- PMRS - armored vehicle support reconnaissance;
- repair and operational machine;
- light tank with 120mm gun;
- bridge laying;
- machine control and command;
- military medical care;
- machine with a surveillance system for missile defense.

    All are engaged in the creation of unified platforms, while narrow-profile machines are much more efficient, in fact, there is a tendency to reduce the cost and increase the volume, and not to increase the quality.

        Interesting article. Thank you. Roman. Dzherelyko. But there was confusion with the manufacturers. SV program is the brainchild of BAE Systems, not General Dinamix. If, Kurganets will be released in the series in '15, this will be a big plus for our defense industry. It would be nice to it was according to Swedish SEP technology On wheeled and tracked tracks .. With an estimated mass of 25 tons of Kurgan. This is fully achievable. And the node compatibility between the main gear and the wheeled chassis is not 80%. Then, It will be a truly multi-functional combat platform ....

      The Great Patriotic War showed that a lot of medium equipment is better than units of supermachines. Both the Panther and the Tiger were better than the t-34, but they did not bring victory to the Germans, just as the best fighter of the war, the me-262, did not bring it.

    I do not understand the meaning of the test, is it a TARGET? And if the capabilities of the chassis and transmission were tested, then without load on the running result, it is empty.

    People do business, not pi ... pain, as we often do.
    There is a clear plan for the future, there are projects, there are samples, there are specific deadlines.

    Judging by the pace of arms development, a large-scale war is just around the corner, everyone wants to re-equip themselves soon and have time to switch to a new platform, but in the end the picture of the coming war will be different than what military officials see, so it is not known which approach to technology will be optimal.

      Already tired. What kind of "large-scale war"? World War III? Have you heard about nuclear parity? And weapons are constantly evolving. It would be possible (and there were people) shouting that the war was about to begin when the states of the F-22 were adopted. Well, the British (an article about them) cut military spending, like almost all Europeans.

        So, is there enough nuclear parity for peaceful life on earth? Then why trillions on defense? Think about it, and if a strike is struck from your own territory, will you also strike a nuclear strike? You think too conservatively, the future war will not be similar in tactics or strategy to past wars. Think of a strategy of seepage and public unrest, nuclear weapons are not effective, they are more likely to pose a great danger to the country that possesses them, and the United States and its Western colleagues are not abandoning attempts to create missile defense, so nuclear weapons are not a guarantee (for the future).

          Conventional weapons in this case are also not particularly relevant. Moreover, then your comment from the last comment:

          It is also of little relevance - for holding Arab springs and the like, new armored platforms are not needed.

            Well, of course, the main and heavy weapons will be used everywhere, here is the example of Syria and Libya: riots are organized, small groups of the enemy seep across the border, after the capture of the region and cities an open front of resistance is formed, all means from mobile artillery to tanks are used and jeeps. By the way, these tactics are seen in the field manuals of the US Army, called "seepage", and after that the phase of airmobile operations is carried out.

    When viewing a video with towing SV MTR cargo. There is little to get rid of the thought that this machine is strikingly similar to those developed back in the USSR. At the Ural Car Factory, tracked chassis GM 123 and MT-S. ((And this is in the late 60s and 80s))) !!! How much time was in the USSR ...

    Not impressive. Neither towing in the first video, nor a graphic model in the second ...
    Asphalt towing. Greenhouse for military equipment. Well, if the English testers would have dipped all this sundress into the impassable mud of the Russian hinterland ... Well, let's say somewhere under Vyatka or Gudermes ...
    And when watching the second video, I was relentlessly haunted by the thought that I did not see the new and the future of the English light armored vehicles, but the mileage of the tuned BMP-2 ...

    But the artillery system in 40 mm is of course very serious and representative for such a machine ... Maybe it's time for us kag-ba to recall the non-trivial Nudelman-Suranov-45 (naturally in its modern counterpart)? .. Moreover, she has a range of shells was more than decent and inherited from the famous "magpie". And the tape ammunition supply, this is an undoubted advantage over the box magazines "Bofors" ...

    I agree except but in the end, the picture of the coming war will be different than what military officials see it I think military officials know better what kind of war will be, and a single platform is cheaper and faster if a conflict occurs, it will be possible to build equipment very quickly like the t 34, only now it will be multi-purpose vehicles for all cases, only change equipment and towers

    I don’t know how the technology itself is, but the scale of the planning and organization of infrastructure and production is impressive.
